The Delight

Locked in the lab as an enhanced human experiment, she now is free.  But, to stay that way, she teams up with the world-weary war correspondent who is determined to get to the bottom of her geneticist brother’s secrets.  Intense and action-packed right out of the gate.  Did I mention sizzling hot, too?


Reluctant Protector introduces a world where people are given a cocktail of chemicals and turned into something more with enhanced strength, senses, and psychic gifts that the government wants for a super-soldier program.  Only Cassie and Seth can get the other experiments away and stop her sadistic brother, Peter.  In the meantime, attraction flairs up between them even while they are on the run for their lives.

As I said, this one was fast-paced right out of the gate.  Its a little thin on plotting and transitions, but the adrenaline rush from the action and passion made up for it.  I enjoyed cheering Cassie and Seth on whether it was their scorching encounters, attempts to protect each other, or teaming up to take down Peter’s minions.  I will definitely be moving on to book two for more of this exciting Protectors’ world.

The following two tabs change content below.
I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.

I’ve been loving all these stories that have people being experimented on and super enhanced. It makes for an interesting read.

I am the same. I should have put ‘experimentation’ or something like it on my buzz word list discussion. This element is what made me really get back into sci-fi I think.

Sorry it was so short. I love Sci-Fi, but I don’t want to feel rushed when I am reading a new world.

Yeah, it was a blur at times. I’m hoping since the next book is longer that it is also better developed.

I’m intrigued by the super-soldier program. Generally, I’m not super into fast-paced reads, but they have their moments 🙂

It had some definite strong points and good fight and sexy time scenes, but it needed a few more pages to fill in the surrounding story, I thought.
