Epic and his brothers don’t rob strip clubs for fun or fame, but to use the electric currency to take care of their family. With androids and robots flooding the job market, it’s almost impossible for humans to find work. Besides, stealing comes easy to the gang, until Phoenix steps into their lives, snatching away their bounty and fogging up Epic’s mind with her seductive scent.
Shots blare. A chase ensues. Both sides refuse to yield. And the small compromise that comes is brought by chains and a promise for a bigger hit—on a planet far away from earth.
Can Epic and Phoenix work together to rescue themselves from poverty?
Or will they find another type of redemption, one lathered in lust and warmth, pleasure, and the type of undemanding love that no human can live without?
Heroine: 4 (would have gave her 4.5 if she wasn't so rough on my man)
Secondary Characters: 4.5
Cover: 3.5 (the model is to robotic, wish it looked like Nix)
I haven't read a Futuristic type book in quiet awhile but I was so very pleasantly surprised by this book. Not only was it HOT AS SIN but it was funny and action packed all wrapped up in a very interesting plot. The futuristic world building even in this short of a book was so vivid I could picture everything perfectly. The characters where realistic, very raw and unapologetic which made the story even better.
Epic was freakin amazing!! He was sexy, foul mouthed, loving and even a little broken. I couldn't get enough of this man. He done what he had to to take care of his family and didn't care what anyone thought.
Nix was badass, take no shit, and maybe even a little crazy..lol She had learned early in life not to rely on anyone but yourself. She was determined to make a better life for herself at ANY cost.
"No one's ever not alone. The only person you can ever really count on is yourself."
I also loved Epic's family. Shade was sexy and cracked me the hell up. Toy was a little mysterious and quiet. While we only got small glimpse of his other brothers and sisters they gave the story heart. I really would love to see more from this family and maybe see Shade & Toy get some love..lol
"Don't do it, Epic." Shade waved his hands from side to side. "That kitty has claws and is definitely going to scratch the shit out of you."
Overall this book made me laugh, smoked up my Kindle and kept me hooked to the very end. The ONLY thing I have to complain about is that I wish we would have seen a little more closure at the end with the whole family. The writing duo that makes up K.D. Penn done an amazing job with this story and I really hope to see more from them in the future and more from this family.
K.D. Penn is a pseudonym for the writing team of Kenya Wright and D.T. Dyllin. Or to make it simpler for you…
Kenya Wright always knew she would be famous since the ripe old age of six when she sang the Michael Jackson thriller song in her bathroom mirror. She has tried her hand at many things from enlisting in the Navy for six years as a Persian-Farsi linguist to being a nude model at an art university.
However, writing has been the only constant love in her life. Will she succeed? Of course. For she has been coined The Urban Fantasy Queen, the Super Iconic Writer of this Age, The Lyrical Genius of Our Generation. Granted, these are all terms coined by her, within the private walls of her bathroom as she still sings the Michael Jackson thriller song.
Kenya Wright currently resides in Miami with her three amazing, overactive children, a supportive, gorgeous husband, and three cool black cats that refuse to stop sleeping on Kenya’s head at night.
Cynical-Optimist. Chocolate-holic. Sarcasm Addict. Paranormal Believer. Self-Imposed Insomniac. Sci-Fi Geek. Animal Lover. Writer…are just a few words to describe D.T. Dyllin. She was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and now lives in Nashville, Tennessee with her husband and two very spoiled GSDs.
