    Cover notes / Warnings: graphic sex

    Review: This was an excellent romp through the jungle! Sarah enters the scene fighting mad. Clint is the cold mercenary sent to fetch her. I loved how they both stayed that way. Formula would have Clint turning all mother hen and protective, admiring her strength and resolve in this dangerous situation. Nope. Both stay true to their characters and fight the whole way through. Clint may be amused by her sass, but he's also truly pissed she's going to get him killed. It's refreshing!

    The chemistry for most of the book was excellent. I thought it was a little much and too intense for so early in the book while they're getting shot at, but that's just the beginning. That and a few minor inconsistent scenes and typos, along with bad research (see below) knocked off a star. Other than that, I had no complaints. The action of the book keeps it moving and I love the sparks between them. The conversation is lively and entertaining.

    And I must say… I absolutely adored the ending! I hope you will, too. But one thing I must say before I go…

    Health Bonus just for you, and why this book was almost rated two stars: Go ahead and drink a shot of snake venom. You'll be fine, though it's not recommended. But consider: Millions of bacteria live in your mouth and on your skin. All five liters of your blood pump through your ENTIRE body every minute. You cannot possibly lance a bite and suck out the venom, which has already spread through your entire system by the time you think to do so. You will, however, slice open your protective skin, allowing bacteria from said skin and your mouth and your knife to make the wound a hundred times worse. Don't touch it. Go to a hospital.

    Forgive Clint, who obviously should have known this, and enjoy the story.
