A scroll with exceptional abilities, Camille Brighton lived a life of wealth and privilege until tragedy changed everything. The gifts that had once made her special are suddenly a curse to be feared, and she finds herself a captive in her own home with a world of possibilities just beyond her reach. When the demons of her past return, though, forcing her to flee to the outer rim of Alliance territory, she soon realizes freedom isn’t exactly the adventure she’d thought it would be.

Running from his own past on Helix, Tariq Navarra has spent the last nine years as a mechanical engineer on Beta Station 4. Life has proven the only person he can depend on is himself, and he’s built an impenetrable wall around his heart, wearing suspicion and distrust like a second skin. Then a slip of a woman carrying the scent of fresh rain and lavender turns his world upside down with just a smile. He’s never wanted anything or anyone more, and he’ll go to the ends of the universe to keep Cami safe. With danger lurking at every turn, he may just be forced to prove it—even if that means protecting the angel from himself.

Betrayal left them broken. Can love see them mended?

3013: Mended by Kali Argent is the 6th installment to 3013:The Series.   I liked how this book seamlessly flows with the other books in this series.   This is the first book where there is no ménage, but I found I didn’t miss that.  I liked Tariq and Cami so much. Ms. Argent does a great job of making me love her characters and want more from them.
Cami:  she is quirky, funny, and completely lovable.  She is a little naïve but that is part of her charm too.  She has a powerful ability that sometimes even hurts her.  She can be brave and strong when needed as well.  I loved her. She made me smile and cheer for her. Oh and not to mention she is from Earth and a Scroll.  (That gets her into trouble from the get go)
Tariq:  He thinks Cami is pretty spoiled when he first meets her.  He knows trouble when he sees it and Cami fits the bill to a T.  He is really overly protective of her. He is from Helix but cannot shift. He is a Hybrid. I really liked his uniqueness and personality.  I also loved how Cami by just being in the room with him seemed to calm him down.
Over all this book more than met my expectations for the 3013 series.  It has action, adventure, and lots of love.    I think Ms. Argent is a great addition to the 3013 team and I hope to read many more of her stories in the future.  
This book is part of a series that should be read in order.  Lots of things and people from the past show up so this book really is not a standalone story.   I cannot wait for the next 3013 book to come out! Keep them coming.
