Hello hello everyone!
So today is book tour review day. I have been trying to get involved in book tours and when the book is as great at this one, I will keep doing it! I am glad I got to read this book and hope to see more like it!
So on with the show...
Several years after the third World War, resources are scarce. The poor are poorer and the middle class doesn't exist anymore. A man with resources travels from city to town buying teenagers from desperate parents and orphanages. The teens are educated, fed and clothed as appropriate for their end purpose, Soldier or Breeder.
A strong, young woman, Marie Rice, falls for Gunnar Lincoln. Their attraction is forbidden, Marie meant for someone else. Disturbing events on the island lead to Gunnar and Marie looking for a way to escape and save everyone else. While they bide their time, attraction turns to something stronger. Will they escape? Will they save the others?

Book Title: Gunning for Marie
Author: Tracey Steinbach
I got this book in exchange for an honest review.
This book was a great read. It was not one of those books that dragged on for ever, which is a good thing. I love books that give you the idea they are trying to share right away and don't drag out some things. It gets hard in some books when you are dealing with the future.
From the get go I loved the characters. Marie is a very strong woman and you get a great understanding of her as you are reading. I love that you can tell how she feels about things as they happen. You don't have to try and guess what bugs her. I also love the relationship she has with the soldiers in her group and with Gunnar. You can tell she takes care of her own. That is a great quality.
The love story in this book was developed well and not too rushed. You don't go from point A to point B in like 24 hours which is a good thing. I hate when you are reading a love story and you fall in love in 24 hours. I just can't how that works. In this book we get a great idea of how they started to fall for each other but they let it work out on it's own.
Without giving the ending away, this book is definitely one that will leave you wanting to finish it quickly. It was not rushed and I loved how the people involved got what they deserved. This was not one of those pretty, hand holding books and that makes it better for me. They have to fight for what they want.
Pros: Great storyline, great characters
Cons: Too Short, need more!
Overall rating: Highly recommended!!
