I’m a huge fan of the Trident Security novels by Samantha A. Cole. I’ve read and loved the entire series. I have never read J.B. Havens’ Steel Corps series. I make note of this because I think it is important to be upfront about how I go into reviewing a book.
First item you must know: these two books must be read together. It really is just one continuous story.
Second, these books are much more military based than romance (like the Trident Security). There is only a dab of romance.
This was a serious deviation from Samantha Cole’s Trident Security. The story line was mostly military. The military scenes were full of intensity and graphic details. It was a little too gory for my taste. I missed the BDSM club from Trident. There are a few quick vanilla romps and a mere reference to Carter playing at BDSM club. I had a great appreciation for the heat in the Trident Series. I missed it in this book. This is also a multi-perspective book told in both first and third person. This combination is not typical, but I didn’t mind it. I’ve always been a fan of Carter. I liked getting to know Mic. She’s small but mighty.
This book was a bit more playful as Carter and Mic go undercover together. I prefer books that are fun and flirty. The military and suspense aspects were much more appealing in Part II. The scenes were extremely well thought out and had a lot of detail. The difference was the military parts were more intellectual than gruesome.
LOVED THE ENDING!
No Way in Hell is a novel separated into 2 novellas. Reading Book 1 is necessary for Book 2.
Steel Corps—an elite, covert U.S. military team led by Staff Sergeant Bea ‘Mic’ Michaels, based out of a secure location in Pennsylvania.
Trident Security—a private security agency located in Tampa, Florida, comprised of retired Navy SEALs.
T. Carter—U.S. spy and assassin.
What do they have in common? They all do Uncle Sam’s dirty work.
How did they get started and how did their paths cross? Find out as they prepare to join forces to take down a domestic terrorist organization with one goal in mind—to destroy what these men and one woman will fight to the death to protect—life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
No Way in Hell is a two-part crossover novel uniting J.B. Haven’s Steel Corps Series and Samantha A. Cole’s Trident Security Series. While reading both series is not necessary prior to reading No Way in Hell, it is recommended for optimum enjoyment
