Nikki White: Polar Extremes (Nikki, #3)
When Nikki Janicek sprints from the 200-degree sauna out into the 100-below darkness wearing nothing but bunny boots, at least she’s not alone. She already has survived months of solitary confinement, a forced swim with sharks and a scary journey to the South Pole. Now she’s a member of The 300 Club, an exclusive group of people on the planet who have endured a 300-degree temperature swing in a matter of seconds.
It’s all part of her training for a six-person, one-way mission to Mars. Nikki wants to go, but not with The Bridge — a space-obsessed company that abducts, controls and violates people. She wants to take a stand. She wants to free her father, her former lover and herself. And she’ll attempt it with the help of the young man who shot her seven years ago. It’s a previously inconceivable alliance, bonded by polar extremes.

Thank you, Jack Chaucer, for providing me this book so that I could read and review it!
Well, if you had told me when I finished Streaks of Blue (#1) how this trilogy was going to end, I would have looked at you like you had two heads. I still can't believe how much the story evolved and changed course! I never would have predicted that Nikki, whose focus was on averting a mass school shooting in book 1, would be in the place she is on the last page of book 3.
This one starts out so fast-paced and removed from the moment book 2 ended, I really thought Nikki was dreaming! It moved faster than book 2, which was good and kept me more engaged with the storyline. I definitely wanted to know how she was going to get out of her predicament and end the story. Nikki is also far less destructive and reckless in this one, and she seems to have gotten her own head back on straight.
Like in the other books, there were some cheesy moments here and there, but overall, it was an interesting story and I'm very grateful for the opportunity to have read it! Thanks again, Jack!
