REVIEW: MAYHEM’S WARRIOR is the second instalment in Lindsay Cross’ modern, adult OPERATION MAYHEM romantic, army, suspense, sci-fi collection specializing in an elite group of genetically enhanced tremendous soldiers. That is Captain T. Okay. Reaper, and Caroline Cotter’s story line. MAYHEM’S WARRIOR may be read as a stand alone however I like to recommend reading Mercy and Mayhem for some back story.

SOME BACKGROUND: A secret army experiment generally known as Venture Mayhem,privately funded by terrorist organizations, headed by Jack Mankel, Common Rainier and Dr. Winters, hoping to create an excellent soldier has left a number of victims in its’ wake. US army Captain T. Okay. Reaper’s group of former Particular Forces soldiers ‘volunteered’ unaware of what it was that they had volunteered for or why.

What ensues is the cross –country journey of Reaper and Caroline, and the fall-out as Reaper suspects Caroline is part of the plan.

The relationship between Reaper and Caroline is one among quick attraction however an attraction based mostly upon circumstance and wish. Alone together, as they search for a approach out, our couple will find themselves the targets of insurgents caught up in a army experiment, in addition to the guerrillas caught up in an area civil warfare. The $ex scenes are intimate and passionate with out using over the top, sexually graphic language and text.

MAYHEM’S WARRIOR is a narrative of betrayal and vengeance; secrets and lies; destruction, compassion, hope and love. Due to the ‘scientific and experimental’ nature of the collection premise, I might recommend suspending reality for a few of the situations and plot points- this can be a fictional story with some sci-fi parts bordering on the paranormal. The premise is familiar but intriguing, quick paced and suspenseful; the romance is seductive and scorching however problems with belief turn Reaper into a man undeserving of Caroline’s love; the characters are robust and dynamic.

I want to add that I think I am missing some necessary background info within the lead as much as the current collection. As Operation Mayhem is a spin –off from the writer’s MEN OF MERCY collection, I’m going to presume that a lot of the history is revealed in the unique collection.
