Why I read this: I’m LOVING this series.
First do no harm.
Trevor Sanchez left behind a life of war with Alpha Team for a future in medicine. Pursuing his dream of becoming a doctor, Trevor doesn’t have much time for anything other than studying for the next exam in his accelerated medical school. When the Sons of Adam attack the teaching hospital he attends, Trevor can’t stand by and do nothing, especially not when someone’s life is in danger. When that life involves a gorgeous, funny paramedic, Trevor knows he’s in trouble.
Tread with care.
Paramedic Brendan Kane never thought rescuing a patient’s life would put his own at risk. Being targeted by a terrorist group was never covered in his medical training. When his security detail comes with a former member of Alpha Team, Brendan discovers a silver-lining to the situation. Trevor is hot like fire and oh so sexy, taking up space in Brendan’s life in unexpected ways that he’s reluctant to give up.
Never break an oath.
Trevor and Brendan must navigate their way through danger and a searing connection that leaves them both wanting more. If they hope to give the spark burning between them a chance to ignite, they’ll have to outlast the enemy first.
New Horizons is a 28,000 word novella that takes place after In the Requiem in the Metahuman Files series. New Horizons can technically be read as a standalone but characters appear within from the Metahuman Files.
Trevor Sanchez just wants to get through medical school. He’s a metahuman, sure, but he wants to help people in a way that doesn’t include violence. When violence comes to the door of the hospital where he’s studying, though, he has no choice but to step in. He uses his telekinetic powers to subdue the perpetrators, and finds himself coming face-to-face with a very brave paramedic who stepped into the line of fire while protecting his patient. There’s chemistry between the two men and one thing leads to another.
But life isn’t always as easy as might be hoped. There are more bad guys, more battles to be fought, and more metahumans to make cameos.
This is a great novella featuring a metahuman who isn’t front and center and I enjoyed that. A glimpse into a secondary character who really did deserve his own happy ending. With an interesting technique in the bedroom. Creative indeed.
Finally, a nod to Greg Boudreaux’s narration. As always, he did a great job.
