Title: Paired Pursuit
"Danger rises in the night and so does desire."
"Matched Desire," Book 1
Her last living relative dead, Mari is evicted from her shipping container and leaves Flagstaff for the first time in seven years. Boarding a train for Scar City (formerly Reno), she keeps a white-knuckle grip on her debilitating panic attacks.
When the train lurches, she loses that grip and is picked up, calmed down, and turned on by the only other passengers in the car.
Finn and Gareth are under orders from their superiors to follow a slim lead on a stolen alien device. At first Mari is only a pleasant distraction, but through their telepathic Twin link, the brothers discover they both sense a powerful attraction to her that goes far beyond pheromones.
With dawning horror, Mari learns the Twins are after the same device she s seeking, her only hope to get money for a better life. Once they reach Scar City, the three realize they re living on borrowed time unless they can discover the device s secrets before attacking aliens bring the city walls tumbling down.
"Warning: Contains two genetically modified warrior heroes, a woman whose worst nightmare is wide open spaces, and distractions of a vibratory nature.""

Paired Pursuit takes place in the year 2053 after an alien invasion has left the planet in shambles. Those that survived live in cities behind protective barriers. Needing to re-populate, women are quickly becoming breeders. Mari is escaping the city. She has no interest in becoming a baby machine so she grabs everything she owns and hops a train to get out.
On the train, she meets two genetically enhanced men, who take notice of Mari immediately. The men are twin soldiers-all hot, mouth-watering, and sexy as hell. There is instant attraction and thanks to Finn and Gareth, they want to keep Mari safe and protected. The captivation is immediate for the guys, and using their twin ability to telepathically communicate, they have every intention of making Mari understand she is the one for them!
Clare Murray does a great job of world-building this story. I found the aliens down-right scary! The story is action-packed and the heart-pounding drama had me peeking through my fingers as I read! And the sexy scenes you ask?? Yes, their chemistry crackles but I felt the scenes were just a bit lacking in description. They were good scenes but I want you to tell me a little bit more-like what each are doing, where they are touching, and how she was feeling, etc.
Other than that, the story was enlightening and I loved the world with these characters. The author has left it open with a wide range of directions she can take them! It’s a great book one to a new fantastical series!
