Sara's Review: Die For You (Catastrophe #1) by Michele Mills
APC PUBLISHER: Michele Mills RELEASED: March 2, 2017 GENRE: scifi, romance LENGTH: 294 pages FORMAT: ebook, paperback
Love, in a hopeless place.
Two months after a virus took out civilization, Rachel Donnelly is the last living soul in California, as far as she can tell. Until she runs into a Marine sniper, battle-hardened but alive and healthy.
Adam Sanchez would love nothing more than a slamming session of I-can’t-believe-we’re-alive post-apocalyptic sex in the back of his Hummer. But Rachel’s fragility, inexperience—and much younger age—hold him back from exposing her to his raw, aggressive sexuality. If anything, Rachel needs protection. Especially from himself.
As they band together with other survivors to battle feral animals, violent ex-cons, and motorcycle clubs jockeying for power, Rachel grows stronger in mind, body, and spirit—strong enough to give the dangerously sexy Marine what they both crave.
The power of their passion rocks Adam’s world, bringing him to his knees—which, he discovers too late, is the worst possible place to be when danger springs from the shadows.
Warning: Contains a sexy Marine, a tattooed ex-con, a girl who blossoms into a sexually assured young woman, laughter despite the pain, m/f/m ménage, hope, love, and more bad language and violence than are strictly necessary. FOUR BOUNDLESS STARS
The post-apocalyptic scenario depicted in this story is one of my nightmares. No zombies, just the dead everywhere and very few survivors. This is a world where woman become a commodity and have to protected and cherished at all costs. But evil will flourish when there aren’t enough good people to keep it in check. The love story between Rachel and Adam was pretty hot. I understood Adam’s reservation about getting involved with someone so young and immature. However, there isn’t a lot of choices left. But Rachel wouldn’t have survived without Adam, she needs him for survival, and he needs her to maintain his humanity. The introduction of the third party isn’t needed because Adam and Rachel are hot enough on there own, but it does add spice to the story and a bit more drama. The danger of this world adds an intensity to the story that makes it thrilling to read. And to be honest, scary because who would want to survive in that world? I am giving Die For You (Catastrophe #1) 4 Boundless stars, it was good.
