Overview

Fever Zone (A Romantic Thriller) by Cindy Dees

Former SEAL, Mike McCloud, is investigating a rogue scientist with a penchant for viruses. Undercover CIA agent, Piper Roth, is bearing down on a homegrown separatist group with an agenda against Uncle Sam.

When the investigations collide, the pair's smoking hot one-night-stand in the capital of Sudan proves a huge mistake.

Now Mike and Piper must put aside their proclivity for brinkmanship and join forces in the face of a double-fisted terrorist attack—one viral, one electro-magnetic—pouring Hell's fury upon one unsuspecting American city, turning it into a lethal fever zone.

If you're looking for a thrilling read with non-stop action (and some romance) that doesn't let you breathe, this book is for you. I loved it.  And then I read the "story behind the story" at the link at the back of the book. Don't want to give anything away... but the Twitter tweet that I saw that said that this book is 100% Thriller and 100% Possible... it wasn't kidding.  This book was worth every minute spent.

Loved It! This book is a true thriller from cover to cover, there were very few moments without danger and intrigue. It is NOT for the faint of heart. The virus that gets out kills its victims in a most gruesome way so if you are squeamish you might end up skipping a few scenes but if not, this read will not disappoint!

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest opinion. Mike is an ex-SEAL Navy man doing undercover observation work. Piper is also doing observation work for the CIA, she as a civilian. From the first time they spot each other across the rooftops, their lives are intertwined. Seemingly, their missions are not related but as time goes on a different scenerio surfaces. Someone is working on biological warfare and he must be found. More and more, Mike and Piper are finding commonalities within their own missions. There are secrets neither will tell because they do not know if the other is able to be trusted. There is also the undeniable passion between them which continues to deepen. Then a secret is exposed, Piper's secret, which throws Mike hard. He doesn't know if she can or ever should have been trusted. They have to work together now though and it will test them. Can they figure out where the virus is and stop it in time? Can they eventually learn to trust one another and the feelings between them? I really enjoyed this story although it is definitely a bit "deeper" than I would normally read. The author did a great job in her writing as I did understand the complexities of the biological warfare. She went into enough detail for me to understand but yet I didn't feel overwhelmed by the technicality involved. All in all, the story to me was the romance between Mike and Piper. Mike didn't do romance as he was a soldier first while Piper was raised by a father that thought she was more of a soldier than a daughter. The attraction was kind of a first for both of them because they couldn't turn it off, or the feelings they were developing. It did feel a little incomplete to me but this could be part of a series. A character or persona I was curious about was never revealed but Mike and Piper did complete their mission. This was a good read and I thank the author for sharing. I would be interested in reading more from Cindy Dees.

The story starts with Mike and Piper in Khartoum, now a city broken and run by street gangs led by local warlords with ambitions. They meet over the scope of a high powered rifle – suitable for assassinations and other sniping activities. They are both there undercover trying to track down some strange activities by targets they have been authorised to follow – CIA and the military – Naval Intelligence. Now think about the ultimate terrorist plot – is it by nuclear weapons? Or could it be an infectious disease? Or Saran gas? Or? What would you choose to maximise its impact? What are the items you would need to minimise its effect? So if you are a terrorist determined to attack a prime site – how would you choose that site? The ideal would be to match the site with the weapon ‘s greatest effectiveness – so a site with a large population and easily managed for the weapon. But first you need to find out what the weapon is. Who manufactured it. And what are the possible effects of the weapon and then who will be delivering it and when. So these are the tasks that Mike and Piper have to undertake in situations of extreme peril. Whilst in some ways this is not a new plot – others have visualised terrorist plots with infectious diseases or other weapons of mass destruction I did find this an enjoyable read. It had some extra twists and turns that maximised its potential. It was not ‘heavy’ but well written and easy to read. Although there seem to be a lot of pages, in fact they are not densely written and the story carries along at a fair clip. An honest review for the Read and Review Club.

I don’t usually read military romance / romantic suspense (although Goodreads has this listed as Bioterrorism/Biological Warfare… wow, that’s specific!), and I honestly can’t say why because to me my favorite books involve good, fast paced action. When given the opportunity to read Fever Zone, I jumped at the chance to see if this is a good genre for me, and I think this book delivered. The action was intense and fast-paced, as our main heroes – Mike and Piper – are up against the clock in figuring out how their individual missions are linked, and eventually how to stop a catastrophic bioterrorism attack. On the personal side, Mike and Piper have a crazy intense attraction (ahem – from the get go!) and are having internal struggles against it, and also trying to reconcile their own personal anxieties during the course of their mission. The romantic elements of this story are good, but not explicit, and I very much enjoyed how it progressed. It doesn’t appear this book is part of series, so I’m disappointed about a few events that were thrown out in the book, but didn’t appear to have been answered or addressed in an ending. I don’t want to flat out detail what bothered me, but I will say that it involved the PHP and Piper’s father. So yeah, some loose threads I didn’t feel was handled or wrapped up very well. But otherwise, I enjoyed the writing style, building of suspense, and the intrigue. This is the first story I’ve read of Cindy Dees, but I could easily see myself reading more if they’re like this book. Copy received via eBook Discovery in exchange for an honest review.

Not my usual type of book but I found it a real page turner. A good plot with believable characters, deadly peril and heroism plus a romantic HEA at the end. Would be happy to read more from this author. I received this book from eBook Discovery in exchange for an honest review.

“I will hurt you for this. I don’t know how yet, but give me time. A day will come when you think yourself safe and happy, and suddenly your joy will turn to ashes in your mouth, and you’ll know the debt is paid.” ― George R.R. Martin, A Clash of Kings “How I hate this world. I would like to tear it apart with my own two hands if I could. I would like to dismantle the universe star by star, like a treeful (sic) of rotten fruit. Nor do I believe in progress. A vermin-eaten saint scratching his filth for heaven is better off than you damned in clean linen. Progress doubles our tenure in a vale of tears. Man is a mistake, to be corrected only by his abolition, which he gives promise of seeing to himself. Oh, let him pass, and leave the earth to the flowers that carpet the earth wherever he explodes his triumphs. Man is inconsolable, thanks to that eternal “Why?” when there is no Why, that question mark twisted like a fishhook in the human heart. “Let there be light,” we cry, and only the dawn breaks.” ― Peter De Vries, The Blood of the Lamb Fever ZoneCindy Dees, the author of Fever Zone, should have known that there was going to be an issue when her airplane seatmate, who had been glancing more and more often at her laptop screen, opened a conversation. Him: “Ma’am, I’m going to have to ask you who you are.” Me (surprised): “And you would be who? (Honestly, I expected him to be an air marshal, given his size and chilly demeanor.) Him: “I work for Homeland Security.” See my full review at soireadthisbooktoday (dot) com

I give this book a 3 star rating. This is a plausible storyline that could easily happen. I have read other books by the author and this one did not disappoint me. The book does not end in a cliffhanger but is open ended for possible future books. There is violence and sex in the book. Definitely 18+. Mike McCloud and Piper Roth first spot each other through rifle scopes while on hot dusty roofs roofs in Africa. They barely escape to a safe spot and give in to their desire for some quick, hot, steamy sex as they come down from their adrenaline rush. They figure they won't see each other again. But the keep running into each other even though they are both tracking completely different targets. When they eventually return to the U.S., they learn that their agencies have paired them together to work as a team. Though they catch up with one of their targets, there still are a lot of questions. Piper hasn't told anyone the truth about her connections her target. Can she be trusted? Join up with the adventure that spans from Africa to the western U.S. as radicals target key spots. Will they be able to stop things in time and keep them from spiraling out of control? I enjoyed this book and hope the author is going to write future books based on where this left off. There are too many questions left unanswered and no indication that there are future books forthcoming.

I really enjoyed this book. It had a ton of action and some really steamy scenes too. I read it in one sitting. A good combination of action and romance.
