Before the Scorpius Syndrome tore through North America and nearly wiped out the population, Vivienne Kennedy was the FBI’s best profiler. The bacteria got her anyway. But she survived. She recovered. And when she woke up from a drug-nightmare of captivity, her skills as a hunter of men had gone from merely brilliant to full-on uncanny. Her mysterious rescuer wants her to put them to the test. But no matter how tempting he is, with his angel’s eyes and devil’s tongue, Vinnie knows she shouldn’t trust him.
If the FBI were still around they would rate Raze Shadow as one of the bad guys. His military training can’t wipe out his association with the Mercenaries, the most feared gang in a thousand miles. His loyalties are compromised. He won’t even tell Vinnie his real name. But there’s no FBI in the new America of fear and firepower, only instinct and risk. And the way his arms wrap around her tells its own story. Whatever else Raze is concealing, he can’t hide his desire . . .
I received this book via NetGalley to give an honest review.
So I remember reading book one and really enjoying it so when I saw book two I knew I had to read it. It is awesome is what I have to say. The group is no more closer to finding a cure of the Scorpius syndrome but they may be getting closer to finding the bunker that they have been trying to find.
In this book we now introduced to Vivienne or Vinnie the woman that was saved from the president who is a serial killer via the Scorpius syndrome that he has. Though she is safe within the walls of the Vanguard compound her heart isn't safe from Raze Shadow and this story will deal with these two. Now Vinnie is a FBI profiler and ever since she was held captive by the president and pumped full of drugs her mind hasn't been the same and we get to see just what is going on with her. It is pretty neat and it seems she can help out the Vanguard with figuring out people. Then we have Raze who is not affected by the syndrome but is helping out the Vanguard though Jax doesn't trust him fully. Jax knows Raze is hiding something but what is it and what will the outcome be when Jax finds out the truth? I thought Raze to be a well developed character and how he has a strong loyalty to those he cares for.
I love how Vinnie and Raze just start clicking and they both can't hide or deny the feelings they have for each other though they really try. I loved how Vinnie doesn't let Raze tell her what to do and isn't afraid to kick him (there is a part in the story that mentions this and had me laughing.)
There is plenty of action, love scenes and drama within these pages. I think the author did an excellent job with giving us other characters stories and not just Jax and Blue heart (his nickname for Lynn.)
Bring me more of the Scorpius Syndrome and the world that is created!!!
