The Earth is dying, and Lucian Hoyt is going to die with it thanks to his parents cancelling his pass aboard the last shuttle off the planet. There is hope, though-a brilliant inventor has come up with a plan to build a ship to evacuate those who’ve been left behind.
That inventor turns out to be Genevieve Scott, Lucian’s bitter ex-finance. If they’re going to work together to get off the planet, they need to put their past aside, but even melting the ice between them can’t erase all the scars.
Review: Ironhaven is a good short read. I really enjoyed reading it.
I can’t imagine that my own parents would disown me and leave me on a planet just for not doing what they wanted me to do. Lucien is a man in his thirties and has always done what his parents wanted. When he finally grows a backbone everything changes.
Lucien was so down and out and found out that there still might be a way off of Earth before it freezes. He goes to find the inventor and it turns out being the woman he had left at the altar five years ago Genevieve.
Gen, as he called her, has some scars left over from their past and when I say scars I mean literally. She tried to win Lucien’s parents over so that they would let them get married.
I really enjoyed watching Lucien do whatever he could to win back Gen. The thing is they both still loved each other just Gen is afraid for Lucien to see her because of her scars. You could feel the love that had survived five years between them. Lucien wasn’t some rich jerk who thought he was better than everybody.
Gen opens Lucien’s eyes to what was really going on in Ironhaven. He takes everything his parents left and sales everything to get the money to help Gen build a way for everyone that was left on Earth to leave.
Ironhaven has a little twist that I loved and is something I wish a lot more man do. Can you imagine a guy in his thirties is still a virgin? Well he was because his parents controlled everything he did. I really loved watching them fall more into love with each other. It helped heal the pain that they both had for five years. Gen had to open her heart and trust again.
The only thing I didn’t like was you never knew what the outcome was.
Favorite Quote: Gen chuckled. “I’d forgotten that you were virgin territory.”
