Blaze Erupting is the perfect title for this book.
Long time crush burns may just be embers when Eleanor first approaches Hugh with a new assignment. But when the apocalypse is just around the corner, all bets are off. Besides, even if you do survive the Scorpius virus, it doesn't necessarily mean you have all of your brain cells firing on all cylinders.
This fast paced read is full of plot twists at every turn. Definitely enough to keep the reader engaged. The relationship between Ellie Mae (Eleanor) and Hugh will leave you hot and bothered, waving a paper fan in front of your face to cool off. Unless, of course, your significant other is close by to re-leave your tension in other, more fun ways.
The fact at one point, Hugh is a prime suspect and Eleanor is trying to prove his innocence even before she begins sleeping with him, just shows the depth of trust she has in him on a deeply spiritual level. What Zanetti failed to do is connect Hugh to the rest of the team. The fault, I'm sure lies in the length of the book. It is evident the author tries, with the time and pages available to show how the guys threaten Hugh and then tease him when he is proven innocent, but it falls flat.
Overall, the writing is captivating, edge of your seat suspense. Even without the romantic story!
From New York Times bestselling author, Rebecca Zanetti, comes a new Scorpius Syndrome/A Brigade Novella…
Hugh Johnson is nobody’s hero, and the idea of being in the limelight makes him want to growl. He takes care of his brothers, does his job, and enjoys a mellow evening hanging with his hound dog and watching the sports channel. So when sweet and sexy Ellie Smithers from his college chemistry class asks him to save millions of people from a nuclear meltdown, he doggedly steps forward while telling himself that the world hasn’t changed and he can go back to his relaxing life. One look at Ellie and excitement doesn’t seem so bad.
Eleanor Smithers knows that the Scorpius bacteria has and will change life as we know it, but that’s a concern for another day. She’s been hand-picked as the computer guru for The Brigade, which is the USA’s first line of defense against all things Scorpius, including homegrown terrorists who’ve just been waiting for a chance to strike. Their target is a nuclear power plant in the east, and the only person who can help her is Hugh, the sexy, laconic, dangerous man she had a crush on so long ago.
