"Sexy, tough, and deftly sprinkled with dark humor.”—New York Times bestselling author Larissa Ione
Before the Scorpius Syndrome tore through North America and nearly wiped out the population, Vivienne Wellington was the FBI’s best profiler. The bacteria got her anyway. But she survived. She recovered. And when she woke up from a drug-nightmare of captivity, her trust in her fellow man had gone from shaky at best to nonexistent. Her mysterious rescuer wants to convince her he’s the exception. But no matter how tempting he is, with his angel’s eyes and devil’s tongue, Vinnie knows she shouldn’t trust him.
If the FBI were still around they would rate Raze Shadow as one of the bad guys. His military training can’t wipe out his association with the Mercenaries, the most feared gang in a thousand miles. His loyalties are compromised. He won’t even tell Vinnie his real name. But there’s no FBI in the new America of fear and firepower, only instinct and risk. And the way his arms wrap around her tells its own story. Whatever else Raze is concealing, he can’t hide his desire . . .
“Thrilling post-apocalyptic romance at its dark, sizzling best!” —Lara Adrian
This book reminded me a lot like the tv show The Walking Dead. I love that show, so this is a compliment for sure. A virus has spread that turns people in different ways. Some resemble Zombies, some return to almost normal with a boost to their system and then some turn into sociopaths. It kept the story line flowing and on the move constantly. I would recommend reading book one first. This is a continuous series that seem to focus on one couple but all the key players are just as much in this book that were in the first book. It ended with a HFN ending. I look forward to the next in the series because I not only enjoy the continuous evolving plot, but I love the super strong Alpha men the author creates. Plus, I'm intrigued to find out what this desease will develop in some of the characters. There's hints of extra physical and mental abilities that make this story that much more exciting.

Dystopian at its Best!
This book is the perfect follow up to the first Scorpius Syndrome book. It had just as much energy and excitement, just as much unlikely romance and lots of suspense! I love the whole concept, this is by far one of the best dystopian series I've read in a long time and there are no limits to where it can go. I'm looking forward to the next installment!
Kept me turning pages
I had not read the first in this series, but I will now. Characters interact from the previous story, but I did not feel lost in the story. All aspects are explained as this book unfolds. This story is mainly about Vinnie and Raze. Vinnie wants to find a purpose after surviving her torture. She is not intimidated easily, and Raze is intrigued. There are many adventures and dangers in this world they live in, and I loved how they worked their way to admitting love for each other. I look forward to the next installment, and I highly recommend this book.
