Gunning for Marie
by Tracey Steinbach
Genre: Dystopian Romance/Military Romance
This is one of the first books I have read in the Dystopian genre and I absolutely loved it! I loved everything about this book…the characters, the action, the romance (just a tad of romance but I loved what it was), the mystery of it all. It was a great read. The author did very well on this short story. However, I would love to see more. I want to read more about Gunnar and Marie. I didn’t like Tyson but what he did in the end…oh my goodness; almost made me cry. I love how the book ended. This was keep you on the edge of your seat kind of book and I am so glad to have read it.
I have to give this book 5***** and I have found myself a new author to love. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did.
