I am torn between liking and being a bit meh about this series. I have to say I DREAM OF DANGER was a better book for me than the first in this series. And although I found the story interesting, it lacked something to keep me invested and wanting to know what happens next.

But see, I have a problem. I don’t think I’m a fan of the romantic suspense with the light psychic/paranormal element. Either give me a straight romantic suspense with hot military guys and a suspenseful and action-packed plot or just give me a good paranormal romance. The light mix of the two doesn’t do it for me. I think if the author wanted to take this story more of the X-Men route it needs more of that.

We do have the big bad crazy which is causing all sorts of trouble in this book. The bad guys is like a mad scientist. I didn’t love reading his point of view and wish those parts were a bit shorter.

Then of course there’s our main couple. Nick and Elle’s love story is a second chance romance. They knew each other before he was a special ops military guy and before she was a known researchers in the psychic field. Her colleagues have started disappearing and just before she does as well, she sends a psychic call for help to her one true love, Nick, who she hasn’t seen or heard of in ten years. Nick and then Ghost Ops then come to the rescue.

I loved their relationship and even though a bit rushed, they had history so I overlooked that. Nick was supposed to come back to Elle and just didn’t because of his duty and being called away on a mission. By the time he came back Elle had gone on with her life, changing her name and following her other dreams in different places.

This book was a quick read and the chemistry between Elle and Nick was palpable. They definitely kept the story interesting. I am on the fence about continuing with the series but since this book ends in a cliffhanger…. I may have to.

This was a good book that should have been great. Too much time spent one the early years, approximately one third of the book, and too much rehashing of information provided in the first book. Dropping needed info from a previous book to catch readers up is fine but only once. The same recap of the first book kept being repeated. Between that and the early years only about half the book moved the story forward. The ending felt rushed besides going a little too far into the whole science fiction thing. Overall I was disappointed after waiting so anxiously for this book. I much prefer her books written as Elizabeth Jennings.

    Usually I read an LMR book and immediately start it over again;

    Usually I read an LMR book and immediately start it over again; her characters are just that gripping. This one was, unfortunately, a let down. I really enjoyed the first book in the series but I didn't feel a lot of the information needed to be rehashed. The reader never sees Nick and Elle fall in love; we are just told they are. Their history is focused on more than their present and both characters changed so much in the years between that I was confused why they were together at all. There was a lot of focus on the "bad guy" which would have been fine if the author took just as long on the primary characters. Overall I felt the book was a condensed version of a potentially great story.

    I like that fact that they explain Nick and how he came in Elle

    I like that fact that they explain Nick and how he came in Elle life. I think to much time was spent on it. But I like it anyway. I also enjoyed the continued ideal of the doctor trying to create the super soldiers What disappointed me was they turn into the same infected people from the movie 28 days later.

    Could have been great.

    A letdown after the first book in the series. Definitely had potential but fell short because of the backstory being repeated. Hopefully Ms. Rice will get the series back on track.
