Product Description
Dr. Liliana Carrera nearly lost her life to Wardwell scientists. She won't let them harm other innocent victims, like her new patient, Jesse Bradford. The former pro athlete had the best hands in the NFL . . . until an injury forced him to undergo Wardwell's experimental gene therapy. Now Jesse's gorgeous body is superhuman-but his strength comes at a price.

With Wardwell threatening his family, Jesse can't tell Liliana all he knows. Yet he can't resist her compassion . . . or her healing, erotic touch. As their passion flares, Jesse's body becomes dangerous and volatile. For evil men are plotting to change the face of humanity-and will destroy whoever stands in their way.

Review:  I really enjoyed these characters and the story.  This was the first book I read by this author and I was very pleasantly surprised.

Dr. Liliana is from a warm Mexican family who understands helping and supporting each other.  She is doing special research to help her sister-in-law to recover from evil gene therapy gone wrong. Now she has a new patient in Jesse Bradford.  At first she expects him to be arrogant and snobbish so she is surprised to discover that he is struggling and lonely. She has come out of an abusive relationship and has a strong aversion to violence.

Jesse has been allowed out of his lab cage on the condition that he help the bad guys. He can’t let the doctor know the truth or the enemy will hurt his sister.  He also has to control the rage and anger his body reacts to as it scares Liliana. He has begun to recognize how far his football fame and his pride have taken him from his humble roots.   He doesn’t want to lie to the beautiful doctor, but he doesn’t have much choice.  The closer they become, the more he wants to reveal the truth, protect Liliana and make her his own.

The FBI agent who has recruited Liliana to help the other injured patients is really the head of the plot to use gene therapy to turn humans into weapons to be sold and used.  He and his two henchmen are keeping Jesse under guard while they get the doctor to work up the inhibitors  they need to help their experimental patients.

The romance and the lovemaking are warm and sexy. There is a consistent plot with good action suspense. The writing flows well and this is a fast read.  I did not feel as though I had to read the first book in the series to enjoy this one but I will definitely look to read more by this author.
