Overview

He may be invincible to everyone else. . .

Sterling Jeter has remarkable powers and has shown himself to be just about indestructible. But beautiful, brilliant Rebecca Burns knows that even a Super Soldier needs comfort, and so much more ...

But she can see that deep down, he's just a man ...

Jones' suspense truly sizzles with an energy similar to FBI tales with a paranormal twist by Julie Garwood or Suzanne Brockmann.

The second novel of the Zodius series is a compelling and fast-moving story that will captivate readers from start to finish. Two reunited lovers will have to fight for a second chance as the situation between the Renegades and the Zodius worsens. Love, intrigue and passion season a complicated story and will entertain even the most jaded of readers.

Genre Go Round Reviews
The second Zodius romantic science fiction (see The Legend of Michael) is a superb second chance at love thriller. Loaded with action as the enemy keeps on coming, fans will root for the lead couple to Lifebond, but to complete the ritual means reaching a safe zone and curing her cancer. The Storm That Is Sterling is a great tale.

Once you start this book, you won't want to put it down. I loved Lisa Renee Jones' Harlequin Blaze books. When I got the chance to read this book, I jumped. I'm glad I did. Ms. Jones' writing flows and buoys the reader from scene to scene. I needed to know what was going to happen next and how it would work out. Every time I thought I knew what was going to happen, Ms. Jones threw me a curve ball that completely worked for the story. I stayed up way too late and read furiously. It was worth it! The plot is deliciously layered and complicated. This isn't the kind of book you'd put down and walk away from. Why? Coming back, you'd need to do some heavy re-reading. That's not a bad thing. I read this book over and over. Just keep in mind, to keep the plot twists and characters straight, a straight-through read is recommended. Rebecca is a sweet character. An astrobiologist, she's darned smart. She's also got a deadly disease--cancer. Readers can relate to her struggle. She wants to be well, but she wants to help people. And then there's the slight distraction of Sterling. I'm telling you, if I had a Sterling of my own to save me...I'd jump on him. Yeah, he's that super sexy, soldier, can kick your butt type of guy I can't get enough of. The motivations in the book aren't always disclosed right away and it works so well. I didn't want to know everything up front. I wanted the story to slowy unfold and Ms. Jones did it just right. If you want a book with the right amounts of action, suspense, and engaging characters, then this book is one not to miss! Originally posted at The Long and Short of It Romance Reviews

Contemporary, Texas and Las Vegas Rebecca "Becca" Burns is a scientist that just might be the only one that can help the super-soldiers known as The Renegades against other super-soldiers knows as the Zodius. Becca has just come back from Germany where she was undergoing treatments to save her life. Returning home she finds on her doorstep the very last person she ever expected to see, Sterling Jeter. Sterling Jeter is of the Renegades and he also knows Becca from when they were teens in Texas. Now he has to find a way to convince Becca to help the Renegades get a new drug off the streets. Sterling has always been one to act first and question later, but he is finding that with Becca he is more inclined to question first before acting. He isn't sure that is such a good thing because the Zodius are after Becca and it will take everything he has to protect her and keep her safe. Becca has been given the new drug and she is now finding out that she has some new powerful abilities and that the only way she has a chance to control them is to stay with Sterling. Becca is going to have to decide if she can trust him because if she can't she is in a lot more trouble than she first thought. Sterling knows this is a second chance with Becca he never thought he would have and he isn't about to loose this chance or her to either death or the Zodius. Sterling will do anything and everything to keep Becca in his life because he is finding out that he doesn't have a life without her. Sterling is determined that this time he going to let anything stand in his way to the one person that can make his life complete. This is the second book in the Zodius series and it lives up to the promise of the first book. The action is fact and non-stop and the story will pull the reader in and won't let go until the very last page. While this story can be read as a stand alone it is greatly enhanced by the reader first reading the first book in the series. The characters are very believable and will have the reader hoping that everything works out for Sterling and Becca. The attention to detail really brings this story to life for the reader and pulls the reader into the story. The book will also have the reader eagerly awaiting the next one in this series and hating the wait that will ensue. This is one that should be picked up and read.

Once again Lisa Renee Jones delivers another heart pounding story in her Zodius soldiers’ series. In book one readers learned of a new government plan that took ex special force soldiers and transformed them in to GTech soldiers. In book two she picks up where she left out going further into the fight between the Renegades and their enemies that seem to be growing as they weed out Adam, their biggest threat. The interaction between Sterling and Becca are so real you feel the struggle they share between themselves and the lives they chose to live. Their interactions with the characters around are a key to understanding the story as Lisa leaves small details within the story for the reader to piece together and try to solve the mystery. Only one problem, she keeps the twists and turns coming allowing you to stay on the edge of your seat as you read. The Storm that is Sterling is a great second book to her new series and I’m impatiently waiting to see what the Danger that is Damion brings to the table. I highly recommend this book and hope you enjoy the Zodius world like I have.

Carla's Review When I read the first book, "The Legend of Michael", I could not put it down until I finished the book and "The Storm That Is Sterling" was no different. It's another action packed, rollercoaster ride of emotions and twists that keeps you hooked until the very last page. Sterling is a cocky and dedicated soldier to the GTECH Renegades. All of his family passed away and the only family he has now are his friends, the other GTECH Renegades. Sterling and the other Renegades will risk everything to keep Adam and his Zodius soldiers from trying to take over the world. Rebecca is the daughter and sister of men that were in the military so she's weary of living a life full of worry like her mother had. She's a strong willed and independent woman who is used to handling her business on her own. She's also a very prominent NASA astrobiologist, and the Renegade's only hope of coming up with a cure for ICE, the very addictive and lethal drug Adam is selling on the streets. Sterling and Rebecca first met back when they were in high school. Sterling asked Rebecca out on a date but he was never able to show up and then disappeared. Rebecca comes home one day to find Sterling on her front porch. While Sterling is explaining to Rebecca that he needs her help, they are attacked by Adam's men and both kidnapped. Adam wants to control Rebecca and force her to work for him, so he forces her to take ICE by threatening to kill Sterling. Taking ICE only one time will make her completely addicted to it and if one dose is missed, it will kill her. Rebecca is very confused, as she does not know who to trust. Adam is trying to turn her against Sterling to get her on his side but she also feels a very strong connection and attraction to Sterling. I loved watching their relationship grow. Rebecca began to trust Sterling and Sterling began to trust himself. He feels that he is not good enough for Rebecca. You can feel their chemistry coming off the pages from their very first meeting back in high school. So much happens in the storyline, and I don't want to spoil anything but it had me on the edge of the seat until the very end and I'm now clamoring for the next release, "The Danger That Is Damion". Lisa Renee Jones is a very talented author who grabs you and wheels you in from the very first page. I definitely recommend checking out ALL of her books because they are all AMAZING stories. I give "The Storm That Is Sterling" 5 Stars

The author has written a great series. Books can stand alone, but more fun if you read them in order. Very interesting characters.
