My Copy: Sent
Trust isn’t easy when the ones you want most are out to get you.
Ten years after she ran away from Earth, Lou Campbell is one job—just one more collar—away from earning enough credits to go home. All she has to do is lure Sam Dawson within range of her handcuffs with the promise of fast, hard sex. Easy.
Once she gets him there, keeping her own hands off him isn’t so easy.
Sam’s committed his share of sins, but he’s not guilty of selling secrets. Before he can convince the sexiest bounty hunter he’s ever seen that he’s been betrayed, all hell breaks loose. And he’s on the run with a false accusation on his hands—and a bleeding woman in his arms.
Alone in her boss’s safe house, Lou and Dawson’s simmering attraction explodes into full-blown fireworks.
When Jared Flores walks in on his best hunter and ex-lover in bed together, the surprise is mutual. Worse, the need he has long felt for both of them overrides his better judgment. After the fists fly, the sparks catch fire into a budding three-way romance.
Then Sam disappears, leaving Jared and Lou in a race against time to not only retrieve their lover, but save his life.
Warning: Hot M/F sex, M/F/M sex, and holy moly some really hot MMF sex amongst lots of weapons and fire fights. Deceitful family members, nasty set ups, and an Alpha male whose lovers have naughty punishments in mind—when they catch him.
I am so excited to get to tell everyone about this novella today! This was great! It incorporated everything a full length book would give me without having all those slow parts I generally detest. The beginning gave the reader insight into the characters without wasting any time. Schroeder is master at giving the reader back story without slowing the novella down. I am not shy in saying that I often get worried when dealing with a book that is set on another planet, or an alternate universe or something of the like. Sometimes I feel as if the author tries to hard to get their vision of this type of world across, however, with this one Schroeder gives enough detail to set the stage but leaves room for the reader to envision their own details.
The Last Detail is set in a future where the outcast, the troubled, the violent and the offenders have been exiled to other planets. Lou is one such outcast. Trying to earn her way back to earth by tracking down other offenders and hauling them in. She has been given an assignment that will allow her to finally accumulate enough credits to return to earth. Simply bring in a man accused of selling secrets. Sam Dawson. What she finds in Sam though isn’t a criminal, she finds a man..one she might actually let into her scarred heart.
Lou was a complex character. I liked that she had such well defined layers that were slowly stripped away by Lou and Jared. Did I forget to mention Jared? Heh. Jared is Lous boss and he is also Sams ex. These three together are hot hot hot! The dynamics between the three of them were very well wrote. Lou has major trust issues. Sam doesn’t want to admit he wants someone for the long haul. Jared is the one that holds them together. He is the one that thinks logically and knows he needs them both in his life. Jared is softer while Sam is macho. Together they would make the most perfect man. Apart they make for a very hot smexy scene. Lou had her hands full….literally *snicker*.
The Last Detail is a awesome novella that has it all…action, character development and smexy goodness that will make your heart stutter. I loved it! Melissa Schroeder need not worry, this girl will be picking up more from her in the future!
I give The Last Detail by Melissa Schroeder 4 stars!
