Colonel Jake McCrea's mission is to get Dr. Jessie Stevens and her bioterrorism team in the air. The clock is ticking down to a thermal meltdown at the DEEP lab in Mexico. A terrorist group has attacked the facility and only Jessie knows the combination to the GP2 virus and vaccine.
Jessie wanted the deadly level four virus to burn in the lab until she learned that GP2 may have been secretly cultivated in Florida. As tension flares into attraction with Jake, Jessie won't fall for another man in uniform, even if Jake is the bravest man she's ever met. Still, she's having a tough time concentrating on a killer virus, instead of Jake's killer smile.
Jake doesn't want to take Jessie into a firefight, but she's the only survivor of the DEEP lab scientists with an immunity to GP2. He knows Jessie is stubborn and tough as nails, but can she pull the pin on a thermal device to destroy the virus? With his feelings getting in the way of his mission, could he allow Jessie to put her life in danger?
This is a really good story. Sometimes a book just speaks to you, makes you really feel what the characters are going through and you know that you are reading an author who knows what he or she is doing—Triage is that kind of book. I enjoyed every second of it.
The characters are hot while maintaining believability in suspenseful situations. I think anyone who likes action packed, smart writing with an edge, and a hot hero to book is going to love this book. While it is on the short side, I found myself seeing the world through Jessie’s eyes and liking the world while I did so. I will be picking up more of this author’s work. I recommend you go buy this book.
