He’s death from the sky, ready to strike. He never compromises, never lets go, never settles for second best when it comes to his offspring. He’s the… Apache.

With his nose-mounted sensor, night vision system and 30 mm chain gun, Simon Halder isn’t your average helicopter dad, and when Island, the daughter he thought he had lost, reappears after eight months of captivity,

What a nice surprise!

I thought that it was all over, but then I got this nice surprise in my inbox! Fun little follow up with March and Island--and it looks like there is more to come! Yay!

Regrettably, Camilla Monk strikes again, with an insightful analysis of patriarchal dialectics, which some would say, define America's subcapitalist consciousness. Throughout the nine chapters of Apache Helicopter Strike, Bataille's coining of the term ‘precultural Marxism’ to denote a patriarchialist paradox frequently comes to mind.

It could be also be argued that the primary theme of the work is the role of the reader as poet, however the premise of Debordist situation implies that the purpose

Crazy and funny....just the usual

I'm currently listening to the audio for Spotless and thoroughly enjoying it. I didn't plan to be "reading" two Camilla Monk books at the same time but I'm glad it happened this way. Laughing my head off at their first meeting in the morning and then seeing them happy together in the evening. It made both experiences better.

Apache Strike Force has definitely given me my crazy and funny fix. March and Island together, learning to deal with each other and their qui

Look whose story is continuing!

As awesomely freakin' brilliantly genius as ever.

I will never ever ever EVER tire of March and Island, but mainly March! Obvs.

I literally started tearing up a few pages in because these characters hit me right in the feels.

I love this wacky series, these adorable characters, this heartmelting romance, this on-point humor – My only real complaint is wow, I just want more. Like this epilogue novella is supposed to make me feel complete and satisfied, but I think it just makes me want more of Island and March.

Also, I would have loved to find out if Island returns to her old job, gets a new job, or follows March on his jo

Island & March

Still not enough! Still not enough! I want more March & Island now that Island's wild thoughts are back. I still cant get enough of them. I want more adventures, kidnapping and explosions 💥 💥 And that Welcome Brochure very helpful especially with the laundry 😉.. More cleaning tips from March please 🙏🏻 hehe...

Cant wait for the next book 🤗🤗

This novella came across as a kind of a epilogue of sorts that ties up a number of threads for fans of the series.

It brought back the beloved (by me) chapter openers (which are often hilarious 'excerpts' from Island's romance novel reads that poke good natured fun at various romance genre tropes) and pu

Nice little novella between installments. I'm kind of hooked on March/Mr. November. While book 4 was not my favorite, I am looking forward to book 5 - Island Chaptal and the Ancient Aliens' Treasure

Cannot be read as a standalone.

Yay! I missed Island and March.

Apache Strike Force is a short story about them joining the real world again.

We see some more of March's OCD ways, and their interesting friends and family.

Epilogue-erful. Now I just want more. Thanks to Raptor Jesus that there appears to be at least one more snippet in the works with Island and March. It is a credit to Camilla Monk's boundless imagination and writing ability that after 4.5 books, I am far from tired of fantasizing about running my fingers through a certain springy chestnut mat.

Is it weird that I want to read the entire welcome brochure? And thank you March for the idea of sorting dirty laundry into three separate baskets – whites, darks, colors. I’m only sorting them into two, but I’m gonna add that third basket for darks as well. ;)

...because, why not. You will all understand once you read the story. =)

Camilla Monk does it again. I love her books. I love Island and March and I'm so happy we got this small glimpse into their lives after Butterfly in Amber. I love their alone time because that's when March is the sweetest, possibly the only time. That's when he smiles the most and I love those smiles, the ones with two dimples. He also loses control in the best of ways. It was about time Island got some!

I love that we got t

I don’t normally like novellas but this one was so funny I guess it’s the exception to the rule. It was a great bridge between the drama of the last book and setting up the new book. Highly recommended to people who enjoyed this series, but it won’t make any sense if you haven’t read book 4.

Full review to come. Here's a hint though - I loved it. ...more
Before starting: I'm really mad at myself for not knowing, or at least not finding out, that there will be another book after this.

Upon finishing 1.5 stars. It says a lot that I've read four full length books and a novella and I'm not willing to read the last book of this series. I wish I'd come to the realization earlier on that this series is not for me, but hey, that's life.

As a series, what didn't work for me.
1) I don't connect with the h.
2) We never heard from the H.
3) The abundance of act

The Spotless-series was a 4 book rollercoaster ride and after it ended I was in a real bookslump. Letting go of Island and March was harder than I thought! Fortunately, the author has decided to give them a last blaze of glory and in between she wrote this novella!

After the ending of Butterfly in Amber I had questions and wished to know what happened next. And this is the answer to some of these questions: what happens when Island returns home and sees her family (and best friend Joy) again? Ho

Camilla Monk, I love you... Today in my e-mail is a copy of Apache Strike Force and I couldn't wait to get started. What a great book. I usually don't enjoy short stories but I ate this up. You know why? Because I can't get enough of Island and Mr. November. The story continues from the previous book and we get to look what happened once the dust settled. I enjoyed seeing Island and March moving on with the lives together. I laughed so hard at Island's father and Gerald attitude. I adore this s ...more

I received this delightful surprise coda in Camilla Monk's newsletter--and saved it for months, to reward myself for getting a certain amount of work done, but also because I didn't want to leave Island and March for good. (Yes there is rereading, and I've reread all the books, but I want new adventures and surprises!)

The quotations at the top of each chapter are as funny as ever, as Island recovers from the yowl last chapter of the previous book, and it's Meet the Parents Time. Only with Island

A blissful dose of Island and March

I’m rattled that I didn’t have the discipline to pace my reading to book 5’s pub date. But that’s how good the story is. May 2019 can’t come soon enough! Witnessing March and Island’s relationship evolve through the series has got me emotionally invested in them.
Loved this novella showing Island and March in the aftermath of the crazy happenings in the last book. This author’s humor and intelligent writing brings me so much joy! Looking forward to the fifth (and final - so bittersweet!) adventure with these two.

"Pointless fluff" accepted!

Knocked it out as soon as I got the ARC email. Fun to read, as always (Simon was delightfully dad-like); and, I love intermediate books to hold readers over until the next official one (I totally knew that was Sun Tzu!). Good transition featuring mainstream life decisions. There are some surprises for & reflections by the characters in ASF as we approach the final book in the series. Looking forward to the finale! We really did need one last book; there was so much up

This bonus novella is the perfect glimpse into what awaits Island and March when they return to the states. Watching them navigate cohabitation and the 'real' world as a couple was so satisfying. I was so happy to see more of March's sweet and romantic side, and to see them 'in action' as a couple. Wait, that came out wrong --I meant see them interacting together as a couple (although I also enjoyed their sexy times, too). Seeing Island, her father, and Joy reunite and adjust to new realities (a ...more

I loved this series.

What I loved about this series:

Humor humor and more quirky humor
Likable MC’s with funny,quirky traits
The settings ( I learned a lot about the different countries in the story)
Chemistry between MC’s AND that there wasn’t a lot of sex. (Hate unrealistic, soft porn love scenes that all books seem to be filled with nowadays)
Interesting plot
And of course the hand drawn pics sprinkled-in were just icing on the cake ;)

Thank you for an amazing ride!!!!

This was like the perfect cherry on top of the best sundae ever. It's a short little novella that takes place right after book four ends. It gives us a peek at what a normal (quiet) time for March and Island would be like. Though 'normal' may not be the best term when it comes to March meeting Island's dad. It was funny and sweet and I loved it! Highly recommended especially if you've read the full series. ...more

Pretty great and full of fan service.

World: Not a lot of world building as this is pretty much a novella that wraps the story up more than the last book (which was suppose to be the end). The pieces here are all from previous books and this is great, it's like visiting familiar places and people and it's comforting.

Story: The story is basic and fun, there is not a lot of plot or big arc but simply a wrap up off all the loose pieces that you wish Monk has time for in the last book. This is like t
