This series continues to be a pleasant delight. Anna Hackett has a way of painting the exact picture of an alien world and even though all of the scenarios are fiction and refreshingly new, you understand the characters and their world. I liked the H/h in this book as well, both fighting an attraction that keeps pulling at them. I really like what Anna Hackett has done here - well worth the credit.
This is the second book in this latest series by Anna Hackett, and it is a great read! While it can be read as a standalone, there are references and characters from the first book that enrich the enjoyment if you go in order. This review might include some information about the first book, so if you haven't read it yet, go do that first!
Regan is trying to navigate her new situation. After being kidnapped from her research station and stranded on a far away planet, she has a lot of obstacles to get over. One positive? She has her friend Harper - who was a space marine before the kidnapping and was instrumental in Regan's rescue. (After her own story and romance that is - see book 1: Gladiator) Another plus is Thorin. Hot, hunky, and a major help in her rescue, Regan finds herself drawn to this standoff-ish man who sometimes forgets to keep away.
On a gladiator planet but no warrior, Regan finds ways to make herself useful with her botanical skills -with some surprising results. She also tries to figure out why she can't get Thorin out of her mind. Something especially difficult when Thorin himself does incredibly thoughtful things for her and is in a "friendly" mood...before withdrawing again.
The push-pull dynamic between these two is wonderful, and the obstacles don't feel like enough to keep these two apart - unless a certain bloodthirsty, greedy race has anything to do about it.
Like you do sometimes watching a show, I found myself shouting at the characters like they could hear my advice. I was gifted this book with the option to review and it is well worth the read!
