Publisher's Summary

After a dishonorable discharge from the military on trumped-up charges, all Ben wanted to do was stay under the radar and be left alone. Someone with his talents and training is not soon forgotten or left alone.

Ten months of peace and quiet are about to come to an end, starting with a bar fight and a visit from a special operations officer with orders to bring him back into the fold. He swore he would never go back, but when the opportunity came knocking in the form of a beautiful commanding officer, he didn't think twice about signing up. With a slight twist, this time he would do things his way. Friend or foe, they are all the same to him. 

Warning: This book contains adult situations, violence to aliens and humans alike, and foul language.

Fun and enjoyable! A pure delight!!

This was one of those books that makes you laugh, and entertained from beginning to end. It has its dramatic moments, but the characters are down to earth and fun.

A bit meh, unfortunately

I'm a sci-fi book nut, I consume a lot of books in this genre so I expect a the basics, a good plot, robust characters, great dialogue, a lot of science, twists and turns, and that the book gets going quickly. I struggle with books that take ages to get going, and this book does that. Other detail that I find wasted is the author opted for a lot of repetitive detail such as "poured another drink", or "drank more coffee", it's as if there wasn't enough "story" to go around. As for Ben, the main character, sure he fights for those who can't fight for themselves but the development of the story and him as the hero is just a bit long in the tooth and as a result it doesn't really go anywhere. Even the fight scenes are a bit flat. Ben's character spends so much time worrying about the little girl Natalia I honestly feel the story just struggles to take off. I'm writing this review with 4 hours left to listen, I'm not looking forward to it, but I suppose I have to finish it. You may like it, but honestly I feel this book suffers from failure to launch. I won't be buying book 2.

absolutely awful. ridiculously childish.

this book is not for me. if the author is truly 12 yrs old, I apologize. it has the opportunity to be a good story but the writing is incredibly childish and I simply couldn't struggle through it , I gave up after 14 chapters. note to author..domestic abuse, striking a loved one in order to force them to do what You want, in any public forum, is not acceptable and hopefully when you grow up you will know this.

Good story but reads more like fan fiction

I listened to the whole story, and I enjoyed it well enough - but it reads more like fan fiction. The protagonist bucks every authority, every woman loves him, he's a trained absolute killer with a heart of gold, and everything works out for him at every branch. None of the characters are very developed or grow. Which for me seems to be the difference in fan fiction (or graduate level writing) and professional type stuff - the character flaws and development.

The narration on the other hand was pretty soundly in the "not great" category. Not a lot of emotion (several times the narration of the emotions in a given scene are completely not demonstrated by the voices), but really the worst part for me was the Major's female voice. It would only match if she were roughly 90 years old, and smoked for all of it. It just kept breaking every scene for me. And that carried through a lot, because the delta between character voices were pretty minor.

That said, it was definitely not turrble.

MY NEW FAVORITE SERIES!!!

Action romance and sprinkle in a bit of badassery. It's about a 50 gallon bucket of awsome.
