Special Forces soldier and medic Walter River would give anything to snatch more than a few seconds of down time to see if he can rattle the no-nonsense and incredibly hot Dr. Lloyd he's protecting, but dodging explosions, snipers, and student radicals who've unleashed a lethal bio-engineered microorganism have made that almost impossible. Maybe he'll get a chance—if he can figure out how to keep them both alive.
CDC microbiologist Ava Lloyd races to find a cure for a bio-terrorism organism sweeping El Paso. The few stolen moments with her very hunky bodyguard River have been explosive, but no matter how alluring he is, she can't afford to get distracted. The clock is ticking, people are dying by the hundreds, and once this crisis is solved, they'll both be off on their next assignment, thousands of miles apart.

So bad. The story line had potential but this was poorly written on so many levels and lack of basic research just made me quit.
An excellent book that is action packed and full of suspense. With a deadly virus spreading like wildfire throughout El Paso, Dr. Ava Lloyd needs to be able to do her job. It's clear that someone out there doesn't want her to so she needs protection to get the job done. Walter River is just that protection. A former medic in a special forces unit he knows how important it is that Ava be able to complete what she's doing. There are enough threats out there he needs to keep her safe from, their sizzling attraction has to be put on hold. Easier said than done at times.....
This one is very well done. It did get a little too technical for me at times but it was easy enough to get the gist of the story. Overall it is a great read and definitely one I would recommend.
