Feel the heat. Hear the roar.
The fever has begun...

There’s a storm rising. Electricity crackles in the air. For Kira Donovan, it’s that time of year again: when the need floods her flesh, when almost any man—the bigger and the stronger the better—will do. For Kira, an animal psychic, the heat is a matter of life and death, and this year it has come at just the right time. Tom Knight, a natural-born predator, has arrived at her isolated Idaho farm—for reasons all his own. . . .

At first Kira isn’t interested in Knight’s motives. She only needs him—his body, his hands, his scent. But soon, through a daze of desire and distrust, Kira discovers Knight’s world—the world of a covert operative, one man among dozens of secret agents waging an astonishing global war. Knight’s mission is to bring Kira—kicking and screaming if necessary—into the Agency for Covert Rare Operatives and harness her extraordinary gift. He never expected the powerful emotions she would ignite in him, or the fierce desire to keep her safe from harm. For as darkness gathers around them, Kira is feeling the heat once again, leading them both on a wild ride of delicious thrills . . . and terror beyond imagining.

Unleashing the Storm...

"Unleashing the Storm" is second in the ACRO series, and the middle story in the arc about the struggle between ACRO & Itor for the weather machine. In ACRO 1, when Haley went to recruit Remy, Wyatt & Ender helped to bring him in. For this second story, the focus is on Ender - whose actual name is Tom. (We also will get interactions with Haley & Remy, meet Dev's Oz and Creed and Annika. Yeah, it's a lot of characters, but amazingly enough, I didn't get confused -- and I'm the one who can't call my kids - and that includes the dogs - by the right names half the time. They all answer to "whichever one you are".) Ender is sent in to recruit Kira - basically because he was raised on a farm, and Kira has a psychic connection to animals & works on an animal refuge. Part of her animal instinct is that she goes into heat once a year - and her's is almost upon her, which would make her susceptible to Itor. ACRO wants to get their hands - or rather Ender's hands - on her first. Girls, these agents are some HIGHLY SEXED FOLKS. We've got Kira in heat needing Ender/Tom every four hours (okay, that man has STAMINA!!)... Dev & Oz reunite (m/m sex - you're warned!)... and Creed & Annika are still trying to find their path to each other. It's hard to believe that two different authors have written this story, because it is pretty seamless and the flow between the chapters, and sets of characters, is believable and follow-able. (If that's even a word.) Again, LOVED the story & couldn't wait to jump to the next one! You could read this as a "standalone", but again - I recommend reading them in order to make sure you get all the nuances and can more easily follow all the different threads of the story-lines. THUMBS UP!! My only "ugh" about the whole book, and series, is that Random Publishing set the price... and it is $7.99. Granted, over 300 pages... but still. Is Random House NUTS?!? Library, here I come with my card tight in my hand!

Much better than the f...

Much better than the first in terms of story telling and character development. I really enjoyed Annika and Creed's backstory. Oz and Dev's is something I'm still trying to wrap my head around it, but I think it has great potential. And I loved Tom/Ender, he's so BA. o/ Kira was something pretty diferent from Halley, but I liked her. Will be reading the third. ;)

The plot was interesti...

The plot was interesting but there weren't any surprises or twists for the main characters until towards the end. I was more interested with what was going on with Devlin, and between Annika & Creed than the main characters. This, along with their tepid romance made it marginally difficult for me to feel emotionally invested in their story. The romance between the main characters was almost non-existent for ¾'s of the book. There were a few glimpses of romance in between hot and heavy sessions but nothing profound or memorable. Don't get me wrong, they were getting it on like animal planet (often, hot, and graphic). It just seemed to me that was all they were doing. I prefer for sex to be integrated into the telling of a story, not a story stuffed between sex scenes. I gave this book a rating of 4, not a bold 4 or an underlined 4, just a flat 4. If we could give ½ stars, I would have rated it a 3.5The plot rated a 3 - interesting but not very complexCharacters rated a 3 - fair characterization, likeable, with some emotional attachmentRomance rated a 3 - some romance but not enough for the reader to be emotionally involvedSex 5 - extremely sexual, graphic and explicit, sexual encounters are the main focusCreativity 4 - original, decent development, the last few chapters were exceptional.

Unleashing the Storm ...

Unleashing the Storm 2 StarsSynopsis:Kira Donovan is an animal psychic and shares many traits with animals including the need to mate. Once a year for four weeks, she must endure an overwhelming sexual desire and if it remains unfulfilled she will die. ACRO sends Tom "Ender" Knight to either recruit or kill Kira as in the wrong hands her gift can be deadly. Unfortunately, ITOR has similar plans, and Tom and Kira must go on the run at the most inconvenient time - just as Kira goes on heat and Tom is the only one around to satisfy her.Review:In one word - disappointing. The plot is mediocre at best and primary characters are not as well developed as in the first book. The sex scenes are excessive and the explanation for them borders on the idiotic. Kira and Tom have little to no emotional attachment for the first 3/4 of the book, which makes their story less romantic and engaging. I prefer the last few chapters were the connection intensifies but it is too little too late.In contrast, Annika and Creed's story goes from strength to strength and I especially enjoyed their intensity. The relationship between Dev and Oz, however, did not appeal to me.The writing is effective and the ACRO world is appealing so I am still continuing with the series.
