I received a free copy of RED ZONE (Red Zone Book 1) by Janet Elizabeth Henderson in exchange for an honest review. In a future run by corporations, Friday Jones is a drone in a genetics lab. Because Friday has recording technology implanted in her brain, she finds herself on the wrong end of a man hunt when she doesn’t even remember what she saw that she shouldn’t have. Friday takes a drug that will shut down her implants; however, that same drug will turn toxic and kill her if she doesn’t get to the antidote, which is in Bolivia. To evade the corporate hunters, to get through a toxic wasteland called the Red Zone, and to reach Bolivia, she’ll need help, so Friday reaches out to the notorious smuggler called Striker. Can Friday afford the price he’ll demand for his assistance? Running, hiding, dodging, escaping, and sexing all ensue. I liked the story. It was pretty good sci-fi and a sweet romance. Though there were some pretty detailed sex scenes (not to my taste), the author actually continued the story after the characters started hooking up. I note this because, a lot of times, writers drop all pretense of storyline after the sex starts (soapbox) and just focus on all the different ways tab A can fit into slots A-Z. Brava, Ms. Henderson! I recommend it to readers who enjoy sci-fi romance with erotic scenes. #RedZone #NetGalley

From the first page of Red Zone I was really intrigued by the world that Janet Elizabeth Henderson was building and I was curious to see where things were going to go. Friday was a bit of a mix for me and I'll admit I didn't like her in the beginning. She's supposed to be incredibly smart and inquisitive but Friday's constant barrage of questions while they're crossing the Red Zone made her feel a bit like a four-year-old that constantly asks why. She goes from being terrified of the Red Zone to babbling in a way that doesn't really make her seem smart even though that was supposed to be the intention. As the book progresses, Friday becomes less of a stereotype of a smart but awkward woman and actually becomes more of a three-dimensional character that I really enjoyed reading about. Striker was your quintessential protective alpha male and while his immediate feelings for Friday came out of nowhere, overall I liked him as a character. There was definitely a faded mates vibe going on with Friday and Striker which wasn't really explored until the end and even then was still left with some questions as to why and how. I'm hoping the answers to those questions will come later in the series.

A Diamondback with an attitude? Yes, please! Once again, Janet Elizabeth Henderson has proven why she's one of my few auto-buy authors, pretty much no matter what genre she wants to write in. I love her romantic supsense books as well as her rom-coms - and putting all of that goodness into a dystopian sci-fi setting works wonderfully. Friday and Striker are awesome protagonists und had me rooting for them from page one - and let's not forget that damn snake!
