"Nothing is easy or black or white in Zanetti's grim new reality, but hope is key, and I hope she writes faster!” —New York Times bestselling author Larissa Ione With nothing but rumors to lead her, Lynne Harmony has trekked across a nightmare landscape to find one man—a mysterious, damaged legend who protects the weak and leads the strong. He’s more than muscle and firepower—and in post-plague L.A., he’s her only hope. As the one woman who could cure the disease, Lynne is the single most volatile—and vulnerable—creature in this new and ruthless world. But face to face with Jax Mercury… Danger has never looked quite so delicious…
I was so lost. I must have said “Wait, what?” at least 40 times. And then there is a weird scene where he beats her with a belt. Then they have sex later on… It was just strange. I felt like every other page was missing or something. Surely she wouldn’t jump into bed with the guy who beat her earlier right? But even beyond that, I felt that I was missing information. About her, about the disease… everything really! It was a bit like Elle Kennedy’s Claimed which was NOT for me. I think had I know this book was like that one, I wouldn’t have started it. A lot of it was just personal preference so maybe some of thing things I mentioned won’t bother others; Maybe I am just not smart enough to keep up with what was happening and y’all will think “What was that crazy girl talking about not understanding?”! Its totally possible. Maybe I gave up trying too soon? Who knows!
