Hauke awakens after an underwater explosion, strapped to a bed and on his way to a site known as Area 51. His only hope for survival lies in Abbie Sutherland, the beautiful doctor that saved his life. Amidst a deadly virus, seemingly impossible to stop, and a corrupt Government placing a price on their heads, Hauke and Abbie run for their lives, uncovering conspiracies, deceptions, and a love that won't be denied...
Abbie was a surprise; a doctor so I expected her to be worldly and a take control type and to be fair, she does bravely step up to save Hauke. What I hadn't been prepared for was the almost instant lust that changed to love! That being said I think she was lonely and her childhood clearly difficult as her only living parent was obsessed with his work. Don't get me started on her dad; in fact, both characters have fathers who left me seething. The saving grace however is that there are supporting family members who really added to the plot.
Things happen quickly here and I was a little confused at how much time seemed to elapse. The awful things that happen are not all due to Hauke and his friends but you just know corrupt politicians are going to put a spin on it. Clearly if I want answers, I will need the next book in this series, Naura, and as I'm dying to see what happens next (growing families anyone?). Also I dearly want more from former CIA operative, Uncle Tony and Hauke’s sister, Naura.
I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review.
