The Year is 2225 and nothing is as it seems...
Damon Wright is alone in the world. His family was taken by the flu that wiped out half the population. Now, like many men, he fights to survive. One night on his way home, a terrified scream changes everything.
The thought of being sold like meat is what motivates Penny to run from home. The man who saves her couldn’t be further from a white knight. He has bruised knuckles and a bad attitude.
Damon is struck by Penny’s innocence and beauty while Penny can’t get the rough-talking, older man out of her mind. In a world gone mad, how can they consider a future together? The only thing they have is hope.

Reviewed by Crystal Book provided by the publisher for review Review originally posted at Romancing the Book This author just keeps surprising me with each book that she writes. She writes many different books and just when you get used to one kind another comes out. Damon is known as Mad Dog just because he had to fight for his life for years and for his protector Don. So he has a reputation around the streets that everyone knows. Out of all four leaders Don is the one that protects his people the most. Damon works at a stripper bar and can get any woman he wants and he just goes through life everyday fighting for his home. All that changes one night when he goes home and hears a woman’s screams in his apartment building. He becomes Penny’s protector and will protect him with his life. In this day and age it is rare to find a virgin and to come and find out she is a run away. This book is written in the future and it is a future I don’t want to live through. Life as we know it isn’t the same. There is too many people and not enough food. They try to save it with this one little pill that has side effects no one saw coming. Now everyone has gone crazy and the survivors have to fight everyday of their lives for what little clothes and fresh food they can find. Not many know how to read or write and believe it or not pizza is just something of the past. The author did a great job describing all the destruction and pain that people of the future feel. It is hard to even be in love because they will kill the people you love. This is not a future that I want to live in. I wouldn’t want to fight every day of my life and maybe I get lucky every once in awhile to get fresh food. When you read this book it makes you want to do all you can to make sure there is not a future like this. Almost everyone has given up hope on it ever getting better. There are some that will never give up hope. The book was titled well and it goes along with the book. That is all people of the future has is hope that this will not happen and if it does that it will get better. The characters in this book are easy to love and understand. I love Penny because she brings hope to Damon and that is what the future needs. They fight for their love and fight for everyone else that they love. There are sometimes they even make me laugh. In this book you will find some of the greatest couples and some that you would never think would be a couple. Without each other and their love there is no future. So if you love futuristic books with love and hope this is the book for you.
