It’s no secret I love Megan Erickson’s M/F romantic series as much as I love her heroes in her gay romance books, may it in her single-written book or those with her evenly amazing and talented co-author Santino Hassell.
With Zero Hour Megan Erickson is mixing two amazing topics: hacking and action. As someone who has a pretty good insight in the computer sciene through friends and family reading this book filled my heart with glee.
The crew of amazing hackers is fueled by the mission to take revenge of the death of a dear member in their group, the brother of main character Roarke, Flynn, who found information about things he shouldn’t ever know.
The plot is thick of events, full of twists which are well displayed and handled. I loved how Megan Erickson created a solid plot, something you could totally get into, a plot who engrossed you, with a lot of personal aspects, hence the emotional part of the book was amazing next to the cool hacker action and the fierceness of the main characters.
Next to the unstoppable thirst to take vengeance on his brother’s killers Roarke is also fueled by his unyielding and ever-present yearning for his best friend’s little sister Wren, who he knows since they are teenager. He is tangled between his desire for her and his wish to keep her protected, to keep her save, not being in the crosshairs of their enemies, being a living, breathing target.
The mix of overboiling feelings, mixed with the hurt and grief after his brother is taking its toll on Roarke but the rest of the team is also effected by the death of the charming young man they mourn. Within the book more secrets are revealed, more devastating facts are coming to the surface and the reader is left with a HFN but there is the promise of an eventful second and third book.
The chemistry between Roarke and Wren is constantly there from the first to the last page. The fact they share a past and have seen the other’s highs and lows is a great basis, on the other hand they have their own secrets living their own lives and the true feelings for each other aren’t revealed until later.
The hot scenes, their intercourses are steamy and hot, combine the deep emotions with carnal lust & need, but also shows the deep bond between the two.
I loved how Megan Erickson balanced these parts with the rest of the book. Never are the sex scenes dull or ill-placed. And together the other parts where Roarke and Wren share their secrets, their fears and vulnerable sides it truly shows that the author is a pro in creating believable characters you cheer with.
Other than 5 stars wouldn’t do the book its justice. Wholeheartedly recommended and really, pick this book up.
