Three words come to mind immediately in describing The V Unit: Hot, testosterone-filled, brilliant. I loved this book, can you tell? The story is sexy, the characters sexier, and the sex scenes are the sexiest! I whipped through this book because I couldn’t put it down. I would call this a man’s romance.
It’s the story of Sarge, or First Lieutenant David Farragut, U.S. Marine Corp., who has undergone a transformation in the service of his country. He is then put in charge of a team of similar transformed men to become a secret company of men, named the V Unit. They are place under the command of The Committee, a group of surprising individuals, one from each continent, to help them control an out-of-control individual, creating additional rogues, in an attempt to be brought into the mainstream of society in ways not pretty, or wanted by the Committee.
The V Unit is charged with getting the rogue situation under control and to find out who is the instigator of this problem.
The story also involves a reporter, Bronson, who has been putting suspicious pieces of the story together in order to understand the situation. Thomas Woodford is the U.S. liaison to the Committee. He also becomes a love interest.
And the real third main characters are the twenty men of Sarge’s squad. They are something else, to say the least. Two are always having sex, which adds a touch of real humor to the story.
I am leaving many details untold, as it would ruin the story, and is half the fun of the story! I really enjoyed the maleness of the story. There is very little soft in it. The romance between the men is hard and rough and often! It is written to titillate, and it sure as heck does. Every character is strong, including the woman on the Committee. There are lots of surprises, and some great suspense as the books builds to its climax.
I hope that Mr. Vos writes more, like maybe sequels to this. They would be fun, and I think he would have a following. And there are plenty of plots I could see working with these characters.
Book Description Only a select few in the human world knew of the existence of the V Unit, a small group of highly trained Marines – who happened to be vampires.
And it would have stayed that way.
But when events in the vampire world threatened the stability of the human world, the powers that be called for the unit’s specialized services. An intrepid war correspondent who’d seen more than his fair share of fighting, stumbles across the unit by accident, and is drawn into their world.
Bronson has no problem with that, given that he gets to spend time with a hunky Marine, Sarge. Although he won’t remember any of this when they’re through.
At least, that was the plan…
