Round three in Reece's explosive and gritty trilogy dives into the frightening world of mind control. A common thread running through the Last Chance Rescue series is the characters' torturous pasts. Up-and-comer Reece doesn't flinch from running her protagonists through the literal wringer which, while painful, makes for mesmerizing reading. Romantic suspense has a major new star!

In the aftermath of an op that cost the life of fellow Last Chance Rescue operative Cole Mathison, Ethan Bishop left the agency. But Ethan can't turn down Noah's request for help when he learns that his former lover -- and Cole's widow -- Shea Monroe
has apparently gone to the dark side.

The reality is that Shea has been captured by the infamous Donald Rosemount and given a designer cocktail of drugs that wipes out both her
personality and her memory. Now
a robot trained to respond to commands from her "master," Shea is trapped. Ethan manages to abduct Shea, but can an LCR scientist find a way to recover the old Shea? Ethan is obsessed with ensuring they do, for love and guilt are powerful motivators. (BALLANTINE, Jul., 341 pp., $6.99)

Run to Me

Submitted by Robin in PA on June 19, 2011 - 7:22pm.

When Last Chance Rescue operative Shea Monroe goes deep undercover vowing to find the man who killed her husband, she is captured and given mind altering drugs.  But then she is rescued by her ex-lover, Ethan Bishop, a former LCR agent.  Shea is drawn to Ethan even though she has no memory of him and their past.  Ethan will do anything to help Shea recover, but he cannot allow his feelings for her to resurface. 

I didn't like this book as much as the first two in the series.  It wasn't a bad book, but  there was too much time was spent on scenes with the villain and his nefarious plans.  The story was also slowed down by Shea's slow recovery.  I would have like to have seen more action scenes.  But Christy Reece has a writing style that I like.  And, both the hero and heroine were interesting characters I kept rooting for.  My rating:  4 Stars.
