Mercury Striking (The Scorpius Syndrome #1) by Rebecca Zanetti @RebeccaZanetti
I want to start by saying I felt reading the prequel
Syndrome helped me greatly in understanding the world Ms. Zanetti
created and portrayed in this fast-paced explosive story.
Lynne our heroine is not only strong but she's brave and extraordinarily smart. She's a brilliant scientist.. But that actually caused her whole ordeal. Head of the CDC infectious diseases she's infected herself by the nearly world ending bacterial infection. This caused a blue heart for her and this blazing mark has danger at her door and she's running.
Jax Mercury is trained and ready. He's got followers and he's going to do whatever it takes to protect their territory. Lynne comes walking in demanding help and asylum.
Jax immediately is drawn to Lynne and what follows is a breathtaking passionate story with two strong willed people finding just what they crave and need in each other.
Jax was a hero I had to peal back layers to get to his true heart. Dominant but protective. He was just so intense. Pure male and so mysterious.
Lynne tried to keep emotions at bay but these two connected on an elemental level. There were so many side characters that absolutely stole my heart. Moments of sheer heartbreak and pure terror. But the bravery of this group of people took my breath away. Raze and Tace and you too Sami I really can't wait for your stories. September can't come soon enough. If you love post apocalyptic romance with extreme emotions and profound connections you'll absolutely love this amazing story. I am so hooked.
