Book Synopsis:

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 . . .

My review:

Oh. My. God.

I LOVED this book. Forget that it is the 2nd book in a series. Forget it. This book is that awesome.

Raze, oh where do I start with him. He is so bad that he’s good and he oozed sex appeal. What appealed to me about him was that he was 100% devoted to his family and those who he considers family. Even when he got sick with the Scorpius Syndrome, he was still a complete badass.

Vinnie (or Vivienne) Kennedy was a mess when she was introduced. She is dealing with the aftermath of her kidnapping by the President. She was also infected with Scorpius Syndrome and her brain is all wonky. To the point where she is seeing hallucinations of her dead schizophrenic stepmother and she believes that she can read minds (or can she??). She doesn’t have a filter. I laughed out loud when she told Jax, Lynn and Trace that Raze had a huge erection because she wouldn’t have sex with him.

President Atherton and Vice President Lake were creepy. I got chills when I read their scenes. I can’t wait to see both of them get what they are due.

The main storyline was great but I called what would happen with it. Not that it took away from the story in any way. I did like the 2nd storyline and the way that the author wrapped that up was great. The 3rd storyline annoyed me for some reason. The Reverend was sneaky. I don’t understand why Jax didn’t shoot him the first time Vinnie told him that he was up to something.  But then again, I can see why he didn’t.

The ending was great and it was left open for Trace and Sami’s story. Which I can’t wait to read. Now, I have to read the first book and I will be all set.

How many stars will I give Shadow Falling? 4/4.5

Why? A great romance/post-apocalyptic book!! This book was jam-packed with sex and action and it was written so that you didn’t get sick of the book or its characters.

Will I reread? Yes

Will I recommend to family and friends? Yes

Age? Adult

Why? Lots of sex that includes some light BDSM. Also a lot of violence.
