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 Vinnie tells its own story. Whatever else Raze is concealing, he can’t hide his desire . . .
After reading Shadow Falling I knew I had to take a couple days to think about my feelings for this book. I obviously LOVED it, there is no doubt about that. But there is more to it then that and I hope I can find someway to express it.
First off, This fantastic Scorpius Syndrome series by Rebecca Zanetti is dark, edgy, sexy, and completely AWE-MAZING! The characters are intense and wonderfully intriguing and are both intelligent, fun, tough, caring, and are irresistible. They are the kind of characters I would be excited to know in real life, but they are intimidating enough (especially the men) to where I would be stuttering and shy around them. And the descriptions from Scorpius and the science behind a possible cure, to the way the men protect and go on missions is really something. Everything seems so realistic that once I put the book down, it took a few minutes to realize that that world is fiction. I really loved that feeling.
The romance...oh my god the romance and sex, are both sizzling! The post apocalypse brought out the barbarian in our hero and to be honest, it was brilliant and sexy, and just the right amount of dark. Its hard to resist a man that will do anything to protect the woman he falls for, even if it means tying her up to keep her safe. Raze is strong, commanding, all-consuming and full of sexiness! Vinnie is sweet, surprisingly strong after everything she endured, and determined to belong and help those that need it. I loved her bit of craziness and her loyalty and love of Raze. This book is just one stunner after another.
Shadow Falling gets a SIZZLING FIVE SHOOTING STARS! Its a dark, tempting, action packed ride that will leave readers hearts pounding and their knees weak. A MUST MUST READ!!
