Review: Taken to the Limit (The Limit War #1) by: Nico Rosso
Title: Taken to the Limit
Welcome to the Limit War.
E.R. Doctor Korina Antonakis thinks she has mastered the chaos of her work and life. In a flash of light, everything changes. A man appears, a soldier from another world. Sergeant Morrow is a Nightfighter, an elite soldier who always battles alone. But he needs an ally on Earth, a doctor. In the dark of night, he opens Korina's eyes to The Limit War. And Earth is on the front lines. More amazing than the interstellar war, is the soldier before her. He is strong and stoic, a veteran, but beneath the armor, Korina finds the heart of a man. And in Korina, Sergeant Morrow finds the soul of a warrior to match his own. Their lives had started light-years apart, but the attraction between them pulls like destiny. Their desire is real, but the enemy needs to be driven from Earth. Can Korina and Sergeant Morrow's passion survive in the Limit War?

Wow! I completely forgot that I had ever read this one. I even own the second book in the Limit War series. I see something unexpected that I will be reading in the near future. I originally posted this review on January 10, 2011.
I love sci-fi. I kept seeing various tweets on Twitter and I had to get this book for my Kindle. I saw somewhere that Taken to the Limit was referred to as a sci-fi erotica. I would not classify this as erotica, not nearly enough smut. (Yes, smut is a good thing!) It is definitely a highly sexed read. I did enjoy the book regardless. The story was strong for such a short book. That’s really my only complaint about the book, the length. I wanted more. Korina and Morrow have an instant attraction to each other the moment they meet. Morrow is from a dead planet that has been destroyed by the Dusk. He is now on Earth with his fellow Core combatants to protect the Earth from the Dusk. The Dusk takes up residence on a planet to plant their only food source. During a mission to prevent this, a fellow soldier is injured and Morrow takes him to the emergency room. Korina is the ER doctor that attempts to help the injured soldier.
Korina is a strong female character. I liked this about her! Morrow takes notice of her take lead actions immediately as well as the soldier in him. When the action starts Morrow never attempts to keep her out of danger with the attitude that she must be protected, she is female and not capable of protecting herself. Morrow helps her suit up for battle, arms her with a gun and a blade and has her fighting the battles by his side.
