The life of General Vedic Merrick is all about responsibility and control. Living among the crew of the Lady Blue with their lax command structure makes him nuts. But the longer he stays on the ship, the less it matters, especially on learning his mate’s on board. It’s Shane and the small human scares him to death since Vedic’s been hiding a secret his entire life, one that could get him killed. Claiming Shane is better than Vedic ever imagined but when first-time spacer, Shane, gets kidnapped by the Elite Force, it’ll take an insane plan and the crew of the Lady Blue to rescue him. 

Simply Perfect is the final release in Lynn Hagen and Stormy Glenn’s Lady Blue Crew series. Because of the continuing story line and recurring characters, the books should be read in order. 

I’ve really enjoyed this fun and entertaining futuristic series. I’m sorry to see it’s coming to an end but I’m happy the authors managed to wrap up the loose ends in a pleasing and believable manner. I like Vedic and Shane and their love story is nicely incorporated within the continuing story. Their love happens quickly, as would be expected with mates and a book of this length, but it still works and doesn’t feel contrived. The details of Vedic’s secret and family history is handled nicely and I love how easily Shane accepted it. Then there’s the secret itself, how it affects Shane, changes him and the bond he forms with Vedic…all well done and integrated into the plot perfectly. Did I mention the sizzling hot sex? 

Gigi getting into trouble isn’t unusual but this time it’s Shane with him when they’re kidnapped. The scenes are filled with suspense and tension and getting them out of the situation is action-packed and dangerous for everyone. There are plenty of twists to watch for regarding the resolution of their problems with the Federation and the Elite Forces, so get this book and read how it all comes to an end. You’ll like it. I did. Watch for a new spin-off series, Elite Force, coming soon.
