Two points that took it from an amazing story to an okay story.
1: The story does begin to drag around the half-way mark. It picks up toward the end, but there is a lot of banter and feet-up casualness. For the first time since reading Shay's work years ago, I had to fight the compulsion to skip.
2: The ending was far less than enjoyable for me. While I do like shaking things up and reading non-traditional endings in Romance, this one pushed the envelope in the wrong direction. My issue with the ending isn't because it's non-traditional and not quite an HEA (the HEA is implied in the future, I get that), but it's illogical. Why would the Mills Co, having experienced all that unfolded between Riley and Galen, actually allow the two to be placed together again if them being placed together is seen as a strong and harsh negative?
The ending actually left questions which cannot be answered from reading the story again. I'm only hoping that Shay carries it into book 2 and puts some of these questions to rest. Until then, this story only wound down to being okay for me with 3 stars.
However, other than the strange open-ending, I did find the entire backstory with the corporate entities to be quite believable and compelling.
Sten wakes up an a laboratory with no memories. He is told that he is a soldier who volunteered to be enhanced so that he could help in an ongoing wars. He is faster an stronger than most soldiers. The only person he ever see is his doctor Riley who is helping him through the treatments that make him enhanced. She gives him bits and pieces of the truth. He starts having dreams of the life he used to have and it is not adding up.
Riley and Sten start to get attached to each other and boy do things get hot!!!
How much of what Sten knows is the truth? Can he trust Riley? Is the side he is fighting for the right side? Is the love they feel for each other real or a side effect?
This book grabbed me from page one and did not let me go. Three days after reading it I am still thinking about it. Highly recommend this book.
He's a super-solider. She's the doctor who helped create him. Her job is to control him so that her corporation can use him against the enemy corporation. But are they the enemy, is their really a war? What happens when you fall in love with your Specimen.
This book will keep you on edge and in the end leave you with more questions and no answers. Very good read!!
Told from the POV of the male alpha character, Sten, we are introduced to a totally new environment; a dystopian world where two corporations are at war with each other. Sten is a creation, a transformed human with super soldier powers, being developed and used as a tool to help win the war. From the moment he awakens, without a memory of any previous life, he is drawn to his doctor, Riley, who is his sole companion throughout most of the book. Can he trust her? Does he really have a choice?
I don’t want to add any spoilers but be warned, the end of this one is a twister. Some will love the end, others may not. Judge for yourself. Either way, you will likely enjoy the ride.
