Rowan Callahan is a career-climbing slut. At least according to the vicious—and false—rumor that is destroying her professional life. But a little thing like her career as an attorney ceases to matter when a plane crashes in downtown Chicago and the entire city goes dark. Her unconventional upbringing makes her suspect the worst: she’s just witnessed the kick-off to the ap ...more

I'm not a big fan of dystopian novels but I am a big fan of M/F/M romance books so this one is definitely right up my alley.


The apocalypse is coming...or better said it's already here. The world (or maybe just the USA) has lost all power and energy resources so no more light, water, telephones, cars...basically the world has moved back a few hundred years and without no rules there is only chaos.

2.5 - 3 Angsty Stars

Dystopian Society and MMF? Okay, I’ll give it a go. I’m disappointed that this isn’t a full on series. There’s another book in this series and it’s a novella, so I questioned if I should have even started it, but I did.

This book has a lot of angst and selfish people. I liked everyone, but the main characters. Okay maybe I liked Zach a little.

Ro is the Heroine and she is VERY selfish and at times stupid. She only thinks about herself and doesn’t take a second to explanation t

For Rowan Callahan when all the electronics suddenly get wiped out it seems like the last ten years, including the cluster fuck of the last couple of weeks, get wiped away as well and she slips back to being the country girl with the ex-marine father who has prepared her for exactly how to survive. But she comes across more than she can handle on the way back to her home ranch and her family and the two men who seem to want to protect her, also want her in their bed and with them forever.

The Good : I needed to change things up, and what better way than a post-apocalyptic menage, right? Yes, totally. I’ve read Ms. March’s work before, but since it was NOT in this vein (more contemporary tattoo artist romance), I wasn’t sure what direction she would choose, whether it would be sex as the focus with little background or survivalist tale with a bit of sex thrown in for kicks.

I think the story is a decent blend of both and I enjoyed the attention to detail as far as the camp Grah

This book was great. I enjoyed the story (although it could have used a zombie) and I loved the characters. Ro was kickass and determined and the men were pure alpha ex marines. It has a sort of cliff-hanger, so I really hope there is a next one as there are lots of characters that could get their own stories!

Flash Bang is a book I've been meaning to read for ages, so I'm glad to say that I finally got around to it, and it was good - a little different to Meghan March's other books, but I enjoyed it.

I liked the whole 'apocalypse/end of the world as we know it' scenario, it added some action/suspense to the storyline. This book did have the expected hot times/chemistry between Rowan, Zach and Graham. The ending of the book was a little open-ended, so I'm hoping the story gets wrapped up a bit more in
Allll-most three stars. The author's voice was the saving grace here.

I really really wanted to like this one. It started out so well! Well-prepared people face the apocalypse? And are seemingly reasonable? With the promise of hot sex? YES PLEASE.

But then the plot descended into conflict by stupidity with a dose of you've got to be kidding me and here we are at a two star rating.

Out of all of March’s books, this has been my least favorite.  Which, was surprising considering how much I usually enjoy this genre.   It had all the usual aspects, catastrophic event, exciting characters, danger, and romance.  I just never really got fully invested with the characters.  I didn’t love Rowan, Graham or Zach.  The story still managed to have a few suspenseful moments along with a couple of hot scenes.  But for a book that centered around a ménage, I was expecting a bit more steam ...more

I mean, I certainly don’t grab a book like this expecting quality literature, engaging plot, and deep characters. I got exactly what I signed up for with this - trope filled post-apocalyptic M/F/M - and I enjoyed myself. Lost a star for being annoyed by the ending, especially finding out after the fact that the series appears to be abandoned with the exception of a novella of a side character.

Flash Bang is the perfect title for what happens to Rowan Callahan when a complete power grid failure sends the United States into a post-apocalyptic situation. Good thing for Rowan, her father is a doomsday prepper, so she knows exactly what needs to be done in order to survive and head back to her family home. But on her way, that’s when her life takes a new direction, and she finds herself wanting a relationship that she would have never considered before - one that would be considered taboo ...more

Erotic Menage in Dystopian World? HELL YES!

This is what attracted me to this book on NetGalley - because let's face it, Dystopia is considered to be mainly YA sub - genre, rather than an adult genre! Also, my guilty pleasure is Erotic Menage, so sue me! (Please don't, I need money to buy books!)

I'll start this review by saying I'm not often a reader of ménage, but I do enjoy post-apocalyptic romance books, which was the true draw for my first Meghan March book. The book was heavier on the survivalist methods than on the impact of the flash bang (clever double meaning to the title, Ms. March). Since a huge part of the book takes place in a survivalist compound run by Graham and crew, there is little information on how the larger world is coping. However, the details on survival from wha ...more

I didn't know what to expect when Meghan gave me the details, I was a little wary, as I will admit, I am not this type of genre person, ( the doomsday / apocalypse etc) menage, yes, hell, the more the merrier in books ;-)

But I will always give anything a go really and I am so glad I did as firstly Meghan can write, evidently she is educated, knows her stuff and before I knew it I had a vision of the entire cast of characters, the compound the guys lived in, the forest and surround

Trying to stay off the grid, and raised by a father that taught her to be prepared, she loads up with supplies and heads out on foot to find them.

Unlike anything I have ever read, this series is a game changer for me. I am so down for a ménage romance so I had no hesitation about signing up to review but little did I know that this book was like no other romance novel out there. The plot is original. The steam is crazy hot. And this author brings it all when she created a world full of sin, steam, suspense, and... darkness.

I really enjoyed this book. It was sexy, suspenseful, passionate, intense, edgy, and full of twists and tu

I have to admit I have a massive weakness for dystopian/end of world scenarios. In this, it opens with some type electromagnetic pulse killing off all electronics. Rowan, a lawyer, grew up with a doomsday scenario father, so she is prepared with a backpack of supplies. She sees what is going to happen immediately due to her father's continued warnings, and sets out on foot to make her way home to her father and sister, and the fortifications they already had in place at home.

Flash Bang had such positional as a dystopian romance. Did it reach it? Probably not, but it was a good fun little read.

I quite enjoyed the setting, the characters, the banter & the hot as hell dirty talk but there was just a few things I felt could have been explained better therefore enhancing my enjoyment overall.

I hoped for more detail, more plot, more of this world that March so cleverly created.

Also, I understand that Graham and Zac both have issues from their childhood but wha

“Flash Bang” by author Meghan March is an amazing read. I usually do not like books that deal with survival that may lead to the destruction of life as we know it, however I am very glad that I did. If I had to deal with a life altering situation, such as not electric and water, then I want to be in this book. I really got into the story and wicked happy that the 3 main characters (yes I said 3) were so intense. The sexual heat between them was wicked hot, but also the connection that they exper ...more

I received a copy of this book from Rock Star Lit PR in exchange for an honest review.

Can you say hot? Okay, so I'm a fan of Meghan March. I read all of her Beneath series, but I have to say they weren't as hot as this book. I should have read this book the moment it came out. I can't believe I waited over a year before I picked this book up. It's a good thing, though, because I can read it back to back with its sequel. Still, I wish I've read this book back then.
