From zero to naked at warp speed…

Rini Campell’s one shot at keeping her field agent position with the United Galaxies’ repo department means bringing in the spaceship Liberty. Piece of cake. Except she didn’t count on the pilot still being on board. Or being buck naked.

Lucus Granger doesn’t have time to deal with a pain-in-the-ass repo agent. Not when he’s minutes away from dropping off a cargo haul for the psychotic alien dictator of Aquatica. Though he figures it’s just about the stupidest bargain he’s ever made, he allows Rini to tag along for the flight.

Big mistake.

Stranded in enemy territory, they find themselves fighting a battle on two fronts. Against a creepy dictator who’d as soon drown them as look at them. And against a blazing attraction hotter than the godforsaken planet itself. For these two wary hearts, love could bloom in the desert…if it doesn’t kill them first.

Warning: A feisty heroine and yummy hero getting sweaty in the desert. Squid aliens who bring new meaning to the word slimy. Oh, and some close encounters of the sexy kind...

Book Review:

Rini Campbell is on a repo job when she meets sex on wheels Lucas Granger. Somehow Lucas convinces Rini to wait until he comes up the money to pay off the repo. But unfortunately things go from wrong to worse when Lucas delivery doesn’t go as planned.

I love this story. This is what I call the sexy version of Stars Wars couple, Han Solo and Leia Skywalker. Rini and Lucas have such an amazing chemistry together even though half the time they hate each other. Each has the wrong opinion about one another.

Rini at times comes off like a heartless bitch but we later learn the reason she’s become the way she has.

I want to say I can’t stop grinning at the sexy banter between Rini and Lucas. Real sweet and humorous banter. And before you know it the so called heartless bitch realizes she has fallen in love. Too bad Lucas had to ruin the moment when he thinks she looks like she is going to puke, which has me laughing out for a while.

And of course the danger returns… Lucas last assignment wants revenge and at any means necessary.

Then of course this mean author brings on the angst which brings on the tears. Of course had to stop reading for awhile to compose myself from being all choked up inside. (Btw... thanks a lot for that Jodi)

And that is all I can say. I have to say this is one tale I shall not be forgetting any time soon. It’s already becoming one of my favorites.

I gave Taking Liberty a 5 Star rating
