With nothing but rumors to lead her, Lynn Harmony has trekked across a nightmare landscape to find one man—a mysterious, damaged legend who protects the weak and leads the strong. He’s more than muscle and firepower—and in post-plague L.A., he’s her only hope. As the one woman who could cure the disease, Lynn is the single most volatile—and vulnerable—creature in this new and ruthless world. But face to face with Jax Mercury…
Danger has never looked quite so delicious…
The Cover Girls enjoyed this April’s PNR choice, Mercury Striking, giving it a 3.6 rating. The ladies really enjoyed the storyline, as most of them are fans of apocalyptic fiction. We had a lively discussion about a scene where the main character was spanked as a punishment and was turned on by it. Some didn’t like it, while others felt it had a BDSM feel. All agreed this story was a bit on the erotic side, which some liked and some thought “If it’s the end of the world don’t you have better things to do then fall into bed every 5 minutes”. There was a lot of set up and story groundwork for future books in the series and everyone who read Mercury Striking agreed that Book Two was a must read.
We gave Mercury Striking 3.6 stars, rounded to 3.5 for the blog.
