Her family is full of barracudas, and that’s the least of Melina’s problems. Sent to a backwater planet as a trade negotiator, Melina finds herself about to be killed and raped. And not in that order. When she discovers one of her previous lovers, who just happened to disappear a year ago out of the bathroom, as the leader of the rebels who have captured her, she’s a tad bit ticked. And when Trev starts to molest her in front of the rebels, well, that’s just a little bit over the top. He’s got some explaining to do.
When Trev escapes the undercover op he’s been involved in for a year with Melina, he heads straight to the third in their relationship; Davis. Melina’s family is very into appearances, and she’s caught hell since it became known she was with both men. After being separated from both men for so long, it becomes apparent they belong together. But time is running out for her two men. They’ve stolen the ship they are on and have turned against their employer; her family. Will her grandfather’s lust for retribution kill them all?
The interwoven threads of the lives of Melina, Trev, and Davis had far reaching tendrils. The author conveyed everyone’s connection well, and I was never confused, but things ran deep. The story was innovative but had shades of Tribbles from Star Trek. Rather than distracting I found it charming. But unlike the original Tribbles, these creatures had a skill set that could save the universe. The chemistry and interaction between all three parties was steamy and erotic, and both men weren’t focused solely on Melina. They had a loving relationship as well. Full of action and intrigue, as well as past hurts, bruised trust, and betrayal of the worst kind, this was an entertaining read with shots of edgy humor.
