A Marine with honor.

After surviving a horrific chemical attack that turned him into a metahuman, Captain Jamie Callahan got a second lease on life. For three years he’s been working for the Metahuman Defense Force and leading Alpha Team—all against the wishes of his family. The job requires his full dedication, so it’s no surprise Jamie doesn’t have time for a relationship. An enticing one-night stand with a gorgeous stranger is all it takes to show Jamie exactly what he’s been missing. When a mission to take down a terrorist cell brings that same stranger back into his world, Jamie’s life gets complicated.

A soldier with secrets.

Staff Sergeant Kyle Brannigan was only looking to relieve some stress after a long mission. He didn’t know the hot guy he picked up at a bar was the leader of the MDF’s top field team. When Kyle and his partner get seconded to Alpha Team to help fight a terrorist threat, he has to balance his desire for Jamie against his duty to keep his secrets safe. That gets harder and harder to do amidst regulations both are tempted to break.

Two men trying to survive.

Giving into passion could cost both their careers. Abiding by the rules will only result in heartache. An attack on MDF headquarters brings with it a choice Jamie and Kyle can’t escape—duty, or love?

In the Wreckage is an action-packed, sexy as sin, beautifully written sci-fiction romance set in the futuristic world. The book is filled with heart throbbing action packed moments, beautiful emotions and a bunch of well etched phenomenal characters who make the story completely thrilling and engrossing.

Jamie is the head of Alpha Team of Metahuman Defense Force. One night he chances upon Kyle in the bar. They spend an unforgettable and phenomenal night together but the next day they realize that Kyle is none other than the person assigned to work with him and his team. And what follows is how they face the mounting threats against them and how they navigate their beautiful and mind blowing connection. I loved Jamie and Kyle and how the author has developed their relationship.They both are not supposed to fraternize as its against the rules of MFD and how they decide to take a chance on each other has been portrayed really well. What I loved the most is that theirs was not an insta-love but rather their relationship is at that point where things are still progressing. What I also loved is that both men are really understanding of each other and their personalities also mix well in spite of them being different. The dynamics of their relationship was really interesting to read. And their sexual chemistry and the way it has been explored was truly mind-blowing. The sex scenes are panty-melting hot. But their bond and trust also comes through in those scenes. It was explosive as well as really beautiful. The way their emotional bond is slowly developing and how they are slowly falling in love is also being portrayed exceptionally well and it is delightful to read. I felt like I was going on their journey with them. I fell completely in love with Jamie and Kyle by the time I was finished reading the story and I cannot wait to continue on their journey with them.

Another important aspect of this book is the science fiction element. I really liked the world author has built in the book. The futuristic tech and the future world has been explained well without losing focus on the characters and their story. It was intriguing and fascinating to get lost in the world the author has built. I really liked the premise of Metahumans and I cannot wait to read more about them in the upcoming books. The secondary characters are also very well developed and they all are a joy to read. The action sequences were written in such a way as to make it seem as if we are right there in the middle of what was happening. I completely loved everything in this book.

In the Wreckage is a completely engrossing and thrilling sci-fiction romance with a bunch of extremely endearing characters. I loved this book utterly and completely and I cannot wait to read what’s coming next !!!
