(I received this book for free as part of Goodreads First Reads giveaways).
(This review may contain spoilers).
Although this book was the fourth in a series, I still found it really easy to read. I would have liked it to be a little bit longer, but it was still a really entertaining read.
I liked the general idea of the agents of D.I.R.E., even though I would have liked a bit more information about the science that was behind the enhancements the characters received.
I liked the relationship between Natalie and Riordan, but given how unethical it is for a psychiatrist to become romantically involved with her (or his) patient, I was surprised that there wasn’t more conflict. I did think that the chemistry between the two characters came across as very real and natural.
It was nice to see the hints of the other characters and their relationships, too. I particularly liked Rose and I would have liked to see more of his friendship with Riordan.
There were some fairly amusing moments in this book, but I also felt there were quite a few good, intense moments as well. I would have liked to see more of the powers of the other agents of D.I.R.E., too.
I felt the author did a good job of showing how Riordan’s past affected him and gave him serious trust issues; something that I can really identify with.
I also felt that there was a fairly good mixture of the plot and romance. I felt there was enough of a storyline to keep me invested in more than just the two main characters jumping into bed together and I felt that the book was really well-written and a good read. I’d definitely be interested in reading the other books in this series at some point in the future.
