The second in the Femme Metal series this book does not disappoint. This is the story of Kimberly Holmes, who was introduced as a member of the crew in Femme Metal. Nicknamed Ballistics Kim because of her penchant for weapons; she is now captaining the ship. She has a respected arms business, but runs into trouble with a competitor named Titan.

A great read, steamy sex, and real action. I read this one straight through and loved it. Set in futuristic space with different races and customs, Grey creates a world that encompasses pain and passion. A wonderful book that leaves you feeling satisfied.
