Publisher's Summary

Even before surviving the Scorpius bacterium, Greyson Storm was a lone wolf navigating minefields. As a kid, he learned to take a hit and find safety. As an adult, he joined the military and quickly learned how to protect and defend. When the world ended, he created a mercenary camp with military precision, no entanglements, and a promise to avenge a fallen friend. As part of that vow, he kidnapped Maureen Shadow, but now that he has let her go, her blue eyes and intriguing mind keep haunting him....

As possibly the only biotechnology engineer still living, Maureen Shadow might be humanity's one hope to survive the aftermath of Scorpius, making her frighteningly valuable to both allies and enemies. Even after sexual tension explodes with Greyson, she's not sure which camp he belongs to - friend or foe? Worse yet, survival may mean thwarting his prime mission, putting her in even more peril. When danger and seduction collide, there is no safety in this new world.

A great series.

This is a great series. Too many romance stories out there are lacking in plot and focus just on sex scenes. Rebecca Zanetti does a great job utilizing a lot of plot about a post apocalyptic world, and then weaves in the romance. I also appreciate and author that can still deliver true novels in a digital era where many people pass off 150 page stories as "books".

Michael Pauley is abso-fucking-lutely fantastic at narrating. Great at the action, great at the ability to throw uniqueness and personality into characters to make each voice sound unique, including the female characters, plus has one of those better-than-sex voices. So I am sure that helps.

Let's just say, knowing I have to wait until March for Winter's story, hopefully narrated by Mr. Pauley, is torture. Torture, I say!

Love this series! It's one of my Favs!!

I've been waiting for Grayson and Maureen's story for multiple books, so I was super excited that it's finally here!! I love when a "bad guy" turns good, and Grayson is a sexy, sweet alpha! Maureen wasn't my favorite, and I don't love the plot device for these two, but I still love this book. All of the action is super awesome, and I really love the overall premise for this whole series. I'd definitely read the previous books before this one because there is a continuing storyline throughout the whole series, and previous main characters are present in this story. The Scorpius syndrome is still a problem for everyone, and both groups need to decide where their allegiance lies. Grayson has quite the reputation, and since he originally kidnapped Maureen, she doesn't quite know what to think of her feelings for Grayson. Sweet, sexy romance and awesome, cool action scenes! Although, I don't know why these tough military guys all go on missions together and leave their territories without much leadership, so they become easy targets! But, I do love when all those alpha guys get together, makes for some fun scenes! I love that there's dual POV's! Love Grayson's POV, and I enjoyed his southern backstory. It super great to see the couples from the previous books, and there's still so much story to be had! The premise for the next book isn't my favorite, but I'm definitely continuing with this series! It's one of my favorites! I listened to the audio version of this story, and the narrator did a great job! He gets really intense during the action and love scenes. He had me smiling at how passionate he sounded. I'd definitely recommend the audio version if you have the chance

This series is really getting good.

This is not your standard romance. There is lots if action, characters with depth, intense drama, tear evoking saddness. tear evoking happiness, sexual passion and thought provoking events. This series has it all and isn't predictable. Well worth the credit. I wish I didn't have to wait until March 2018 for book 5. :(

Perfect!

Love this series and once again I'm left anxiously waiting for the next book - this time April and Damien's story. They keep getting better and better. I'm so glad they are available as audiobooks too, makes it so much easier to enjoy multiple times when it's a favorite like these are!

Pretty good story and addition to the series :)

3.5-4 stars

This was a pretty good story and addition to the series. I liked Maureen (Grey grew on me after a while) and the story was interesting and engaging.

Maureen is a biologist that specializes in plants/crops. With the scarcity of food now that the country's infrastructure is gone and most of the population is dead, Maureen's knowledge of growing things is greatly needed. Maureen's brother is military (he's the MC from book #2 Shadow Falling) and she ends up kidnapped by someone that wants to blackmail him.

Grey is the leader of the Mercenaries...a group of survivors that are mostly ex-military and there are no women or children in the group. Grey is determined to find a man that was responsible for the major spread of the disease when it first was discovered. His blackmailing of Maureen's brother is specifically to find this man but (if you've read the previous books) that plan doesn't work out too well.

I'd already read about Maureen's kidnapping by Grey in book #2 but I was happy that this book gave us some insight into what happened during that time as it helped to flesh out the connection between Maureen and Grey. Because she was a kidnap victim, Maureen didn't want to want Grey but she did and things might have gone a bit further during her captivity than anyone would expect. So not only do they have a strong mutual attraction, there's unfinished business between them. When Grey and Maureen see each other again after she was released from her kidnapping, there was definitely some mixed feelings between them.

Despite her confusion over things with Grey, Maureen really wants to see the greenhouses in the Mercenary's territory and see if there's any helpful food plants being grown that could be salvaged. Her brother isn't too thrilled about the possibility of Maureen being under Grey's control again and this causes some difficulties between the Vanguard and the Mercenaries. Because of how they met, Maureen is unsure about whether to trust Grey or not and he doesn't make it easy on her because there's still no formal agreement between the Vanguard and the Mercenaries and Grey is a bit wishy washy about where his loyalties lie. Thankfully, things do get ironed out and while some stuff is still up in the air, things do end with the Vanguard and Mercenaries becoming allies and Grey and Maureen together and working on their HEA.

This was a pretty enjoyable story. I liked Maureen and thought she was a good heroine. Grey had the potential to be a good hero and he was...eventually. I was just rather disappointed that he legitimately had to question who to give his loyalty to (you'll understand when you read the story) but at least he made the right choice in the end. Overall, I liked the characters and found the story to be good and very engaging. I'd recommend the story and series. :)

* note - I'll be honest....at first the narrator sounded rather robotic and I was seriously thinking about returning the audiobook. But I kept listening and found that he sounded much better as the narration proceeded. He didn't improve to the point of greatness but I thought the narration was good overall.
