Book Review: A Change of Scenery (The Hunger Roads Trilogy, Book 1) by Debra Parmley @DebraParmley

About the Book:

The Hunger Roads Trilogy: In a futuristic world of GMO's, and overbearing government, a hot Special Ops soldier rescues an innocent belly dancer and gives her a wild adventure along the way, but there are larger issues to face in a world that has become dangerous and deadly. 

A Change of Scenery: 

Belly dancer Clarrisa Heat is headed from Memphis to the Caribbean for a vacation after a horrible divorce. A change of scenery is just what she needs to forget her troubles. At the Atlanta shuttle station she's handed a letter, which states she cannot board the Zuilund Super Shuttle until she receives a Sendot injection, a new drug that claims to prevent a new deadly gastrointestinal illness. She stops in a shuttle lounge on her way to check in and gets locked inside the wrecked deserted room with no one to hear her calling and no cell phone service. 

Navy SEAL Warren West finds Clarissa locked in the lounge. Soon they're on the run because she missed her injection and shuttle, which lands her on the militia's watch list. The heirloom herbs she grows in her bedroom will mark her a terrorist on Benjamin Innovative Genetics Corporation's most wanted list if they're discovered. All Clarissa wanted was A Change of Scenery to live her new mantra... No men, just sand and beach. Is a change of scenery what she needs or is it Warren? And will he cause her to change her mantra?

I liked the first book in Debra Parmley's Hunger Roads Trilogy. Clarissa is locked in a lounge and found by Navy SEAL Warren West after she attempts to flee a shuttle transport. The government is requiring all passengers to receive a shot that is supposedly to prevent a deadly flu-like epidemic. Something doesn't feel right to Clarissa so she attempts to leave the shuttle station, and finds herself trapped.

The first part of this series is all about Warren getting Clarissa to safety outside the shuttle station. There are many obstacles they have to overcome to get that far but they've discovered that as long as they have each other, they will make it through. Unfortunately, during her attempt to flee, Clarissa has forced herself into the sights of the government and her problems aren't just in the shuttle station. Warren and his team have to secure her home and the illegal heirloom herbs that are certain to put her on the terrorist list.

So much goes on this book that the reader will be engrossed from the very beginning. There is action, suspense, and chemistry. Warren and Clarissa click and I enjoyed their interactions. I'm certain their chemistry will be explored a lot more in the following two books.

I look forward to book two in the Hunger Roads Trilogy.

I read an ARC.
