THE STORM THAT IS STERLING
Lisa Renee Jones
Sterling Jeter was forced to join the army and stand up the pretty girl from his hometown, with whom he had a date, Rebecca Burns. Fourteen years later, these two meet again, but the circumstances have changed drastically. Sterling is no longer human, after being injected with alien DNA in an effort to create supersoldiers. Unfortunately, the supersoldiers have split into two factions: one bent on world domination and the other opposed to them. The evil faction is selling a highly addictive drug called ICE. Sterling and his friends are trying to stop the production of ICE, and Rebecca, an astrobiologist, may be their only hope to find an antidote or immunization for ICE.
THE STORM THAT IS STERLING is an entertaining paranormal romance with a unique premise and great characters. Although I haven't read the first book in this series, I had no trouble following the storyline. This book has plenty of action, intrigue, and is filled with yummy supersoldiers. Sterling, who was raised by an abusive, alcoholic grandmother, makes a great tortured hero. Sterling is protective, strong, intelligent and is trying to save the world. What more could you ask from a hero? Rebecca is his perfect match and equally brave and strong. I, only, wish that she had been more upfront with Sterling. While I understand the reasons for her actions, I wish Rebecca would have revealed her secret sooner. Other than this small quibble, I greatly enjoyed this book and look forward to the next book in the series.
NOTE: I was sent this book in return for an impartial review.
