Two Man Station by Lisa Henry

I absolutely loved the start of Emergency Services series by Lisa Henry and I am super eager to read more.

The setting for Two Man Station felt like a character itself and I loved the small town vibe and isolated feel of the novel. The heat, dust and cicadas were vivid. Gio was such a great character. He’s so over everything and has barriers up before he’s even started his new job in the middle of nowhere. His past has been turbulent and heart breaking, so I think Jason’s attitude initially surprises him as he’s expecting a more aggressive welcome to his new position.

The tension between the two is built beautifully and I think if you’re a fan of the slow build, as I am, you’re in for a treat. I did expect a few more fireworks and passion, but I think as I re read this that Gio in particular is so worried about being hurt, so maybe there are are more emotional obstacles to overcome.

I loved the secondary characters, Jason’s son in particular, the small town dramas and insight into a rural cops life were also super engaging to read. I loved this book and I cannot wait to read more in the series. Hoping I won’t have to wait an age!

Silver Silence by Nalini Singh


A great start to a new trilogy from Nalini Singh. Silver is determined to stay in Silence and carry out her duties as an emergency response coordinator. When she someone attempts to poison her and possibly do damage to the truce and Trinity Accord, Valentin steps in to assist her.   
I loved the chemistry between these two and I am more than a little smitten with Valentin. He is a total bear and I loved the secondary characters and the kids. So sweet! Silver is such a strong character, particularly in her willingness to take charge and make changes, even if she’s not sure it will end well. Between her and Valentin it was a total slow burn romance, which I really enjoy. I also thought there was plenty of great world building and I loved the setting in Russia. One character who stood out for me is Arwen. He was so intriguing and I have my fingers crossed that he gets his own book. 
A fab new start for a much loved series and I cannot wait for the next book. B+
