He's Lazarus, and so is she. What happens when their worlds collide?

He's hunting her. Maddox Kane has one goal--track Luna Ashton. He's the best hunter on his team, finely honed and designed by Uncle Sam to be an unstoppable killing machine. He's a super solider--faster, stronger, and deadlier than anyone else. Maddox keeps his emotions under careful lock and key because he can't afford to feel. Feeling is too dangerous, and the attraction Maddox feels for Luna is positively lethal.

Luna has no memory of being in the labs with Maddox. She doesn't remember the connection they shared when they were trapped in hell. She doesn't remember escaping the facility. She doesn't remember him. So when Maddox hunts her down, she's terrified of him...and of the strange psychic and sensual connection they seem to share. Surely she shouldn't want him so much?

Luna is different from the other Lazarus subjects, and Maddox isn't the only one hunting her. She's a dangerous threat to Project Lazarus, and Luna isn't going to be allowed to just slip away from the U.S. government...or from the other super soldiers who are also desperate to find her. Every Lazarus subject has incredible psychic gifts. Some Lazarus subjects can make people see their worst fears, some can control minds...but Luna's gift--she can show people their memories. Luna has the ability to restore memories to all of the other Lazarus subjects, yet she can't see her own past.

And if you can't see your past...then you never know what danger is coming, what killer is standing right next to you, touching you, lying to you...not until it is too late.


Author's Note: All of the Lazarus Rising stories are stand-alone books. A blend of dark romantic suspense and sexy paranormal romance, LIE CLOSE TO ME is the longest Lazarus Rising book to date--coming in at over 70,000 words.

Score another point for the 5th installment in the Lazarus series!!! Lie Close to Me written by Cynthia Eden and published under the Hocus Pocus Publishing brand. The action along with the chemistry between Luna and Maddox was out of this world. When the facility was under attack one soldier come up missing and the only person who could bring her back...Maddox Kane. Maddox Kane had one mission to find Luna and bring her back. However, when he finds Luna it was to a sad heart that she doesn’t remember anything. But when danger comes calling in the form of others Super Soldiers. Maddox will have to show why his nickname is HUNTER. Luna, a subject of the Lazarus project was not your normal member of the Lazarus team. She was totally different from all the others and there are those who are after her just for her unique ability. What makes Luna different from the others is that when she dies and come back, she doesn’t remember anything also her ability to heal the mind and the body. I fell in love with Luna and Maddox as a couple. They had to undergo so many struggles to be together. The only downside to this story was I wish that it was longer to include more of Luna and Maddox past. Other than what I consider a downside the plot was fantastic from beginning to end. The best story out of the Lazarus series so far.

It's no secret that I love this series. I thoroughly enjoyed this latest installment in the series. It was action packed, had some twists and turns, steamy scenes and added new dynamics to the Lazarus world that has me excited to see what happens next. If you love romance with action and super soldiers I can't recommend this series enough. ARC provided by author in exchange for a honest review

Each book in this series just gets better and better and this one is by far my favorite! As a part of the Lazarus project, Luna becomes aware that the powers in control are planning to terminate her. Using her psychic link she sends a message to Maddox, another subject in the program. When she awakens in a deserted hospital she is lost and confused. She doesn’t trust the man that appears and kidnaps her. He’s saying the right things but she’s not sure whether to believe him or not. Luna was an amazing heroine. She is strong and talented but broken due to her circumstances. Maddox has one goal and that is to protect her at all cost. As this story unwinds there are many twists and turns and lots of action as more is revealed about the project. I was thrilled to learn what Luna’s special talent was and to consider all the possible ramifications of it. This is going to open up a whole new avenue for the series. I loved this couple so much as they struggle to stay together while battling unseen and unknown villains. It’s a dangerous place to be when you can’t even trust yourself or your body. This author has one wild imagination and I couldn’t be more thankful for it! Fast paced and well written, it is filled with plenty of drama, lots of heart stopping action, wonderful secondary characters and enough steam and chemistry that you’ll need a fan nearby. While this is a series and it’s best to read from the beginning, I feel that they could be read as a standalone. This author tends to give enough background to cover anything you might have missed previously. Just the way I like my series to be! I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Dual POV Safe – some om drama but not what you would typically expect; I consider this a safe read No apparent triggers

GOD. DAMN. Another SUPER OUTSTANDING, UTTERLY AMAZING, HAD ME ON THE EDGE OF A CLIFF ROMANTIC SUSPENSE WITH A HERO WHO IS TO DIE FOR AND A VERY SPECIAL HEROINE THAT I LIKED EVER SO MUCH! I have LOVED and I do mean LOVED TO THE NTH DEGREE, EVERY single Lazarus Rising story. But Lie Close To Me, I think I LOVED EVEN MORE. LIKE LOVED IT TO THE MOON AND BACK AGAIN type of love! Maddox is unbelievably one of the most likable heroes ever. Sexy, strong, protective and totally kick-a**, he is the very type of hero my heart swoops for. And Luna..WOW! Her powers are AMAZING and she is the most special Lazarus subject to date! Maddox and Luna have a past together that connects them...even after Lazarus. The bond is CRAZY intense and strong...almost unbreakable. And the non-stop action and danger is so exciting and thrilling. I dived into this book and didn't want to leave. I am even more addicted to these books now and want the next one LIKE YESTERDAY! I FLOOOOOOOVED IT FREAKING HARD! Lie Close To Me gets a FULL BLOWN, INTOXICATING TEN GLORIOUS SHOOTING STARS!!

This is the best one yet!!! Oh my, Maddox! I didn't think anyone could beat the first book but Maddox just took the prize. I loved everything about this book. Maddox is a big reason, but not the only reason. His and Luna's story was captivating. Their unique gifts added an extra element to the story line and overall plot. This series is full of action and suspense. The characters are super soldiers that were altered with a chemical a scientist created to bring back the dead. Each with their own unique gifts. Each dangerous in their own way. Some turn bad, some turn good. The government are trying to cage them and use them as weapons in warfare. Treating them as if they are animals and not people. These men and women are loyal soldiers until they meet their mate. Their mates ground them, keep the darkness away. The are protective and very possessive of their mate. Their loyalty changes to that person and the government is not happy about that. With each new book and each new couple, they fight to break free of their prison and the rogue are gathering together coming closer and closer to destroying the Lazarus project. Cynthia Eden has succeeded in bringing an exciting new series to the romantic suspense genre! I can't wait to for Jett's story! ARC provided by NetGalley.
