Genetic manipulation has created the first super soldier, the Circ. Able to transform into hulking, inhuman beasts at will, the second generation of Circs, under Project Dawn Endeavor, is much more dangerous than the first. The secret, psychically gifted four-man team who once worked for the U.S. Navy now belongs to the mysterious Mrs. Sharpe who is bent on cleaning up science gone wrong around the globe. She sends the men of Dawn Endeavor out on behalf of the United States government, but there’s more to her agenda than patriotism. If only the team knew what she really had planned.
There are few minds Jesse Fallon can’t read. Mrs. Sharpe’s is one of them. Olivia Lynn’s, the team’s new interpreter on their latest mission, is another. The woman is smart, sexy, and hell on Jesse's libido. Her lips say she refuses to become romantically involved with an ex-SEAL, but her body says something else entirely. Jesse’s Circ, and a Circ can never find satisfaction with a human, because only a Circ can ease his carnal needs. Except Olivia satisfies everything inside him and leaves him craving more. When the mission goes wrong, he’ll have to learn Olivia’s secrets in order to save her, and in turn, save himself. Because a Circ in love is a walking time bomb.
This story came out of the gate strong. It has a good primus, a strong plot, and interesting characters with interesting problems that have interesting solutions. I really enjoyed the dynamic among the boys. They are more then comrades in arms, more then friends. The reader can also feel their isolation brought on by their uneasy submission to a commander they don’t altogether trust.
But about half way through the story, it kind of started to flounder. As soon as the main pair got together, all the tension left the story. Even the drama outside the romance did not feel as alive. It even went so far as to skip that part of the story where the characters decide if they really want to be together.
The sex is wonderfully hot, and runs the gamut of several kinks. Each coupling is slightly different from the last and keeps each scene fresh. There are a few times when I wonder if, plot wise, sex is really an appropriate action to take
Overall, a good story and a fun read.
