    Second in series

    Well book two in this series catches up with the couple that previously had a more supporting role. Reanimated super soldier Flynn might not remember his past but he does know that he wants psychiatrist Cecelia. They escaped the lab together and after laying low Cecelia is positive she wants to get back to work but everything starts going wrong when a murderer starts playing games. This serial killer might have slipped through the net before but now he's back and even more determined to reel in his victim but this time he's enhanced ! Yes it's clear that Flynn isn't the only one obsessed with Cecelia. I'm loving this mixture of suspense and paranormal with it's highly original plot. There are several characters of note here so clearly the author has numerous different definitions in which to take the overall story arc. However as much as I liked Flynn there was just something about Cecelia that didn't gel well. Yes she's a survivor but her numerous exes that show up just didn't add much to my understanding of her character. We are told she's a woman who enjoys flirting with the dark side but honestly the hints and lack of any evidence just felt odd. Still it did mean Flynn could get all growly and possessive which was highly entertaining. Why a four ? This would have been a five but I hated the end ! Oh it's a good story and I really enjoyed the emotional pull not to mention the very twisted past that Cecelia clearly has but after so much thrown in with such a lot are of baggage to traverse the ending seemed so flat ! Still I will look out for the next book and hope for another thrill a minute romance. This voluntary take is of a copy I requested from Netgalley and my thoughts and comments are honest and I believe fair

    The perfect alpha hero!

    Cecelia escaped the compound that held the Lazarus experiments with the help of Flynn, a super soldier, her patient, and by all accounts, a dead man. One of the rogue experiments is still on the loose and Flynn refuses to leave Cece’s side until he can be caught and dispensed with. In Flynn’s mind, he is a monster, a freak of nature but he will do whatever it takes to ensure her safety. Cecelia survived a nightmare as a young girl which set her on a path that led directly to the program that housed Flynn. Her fears are a real and breathing thing. But just what exactly is her deepest fear? Flynn has no memory of his past. All he has is what the Lazarus project has left him with and a strong hope that one day Cecelia will trust him. I am really enjoying this series and all the twists and turns that are revealed along the way. Flynn, as a super soldier, is one incredibly strong, protective hero with a streak of jealousy toward the men who are a part of Cecelia’s lives. Cecelia, while apparently frightened of the things that go bump in the night, is actually so much stronger than anyone gives her credit for. Together, they were incredible. Fast paced, full of action, suspense and drama, this is an intense read that answers questions even as it leaves the reader wanting to know more. I absolutely love these Lazarus men and the women they have staked a claim on. Can’t wait for the next in the series. This is an honest review of an advanced copy provided by NetGalley and Hocus Pocus Publishing. Multi POV Safe with some other man drama but the heroine has long since been out of the relationship and the men are not forcing themselves back into her life. Stand alone – While I believe this covers enough ground from the previous book to stand alone, I would recommend you read Never Let Go first. Possible triggers

    Keep Me Close

    The second book in the Lazarus Rising series just may have surpassed the first! Flynn and Cecilia’s romance was touched on in Never Let Go as they were the main secondary characters but let me tell you that it in no way prepared me for just how turbulent and emotional their road to happiness would be. Of course, the sizzling attraction that flared every time they were in each other’s company proved to be undeniable as this couple grabs reader’s hearts and have them holding their breath. Cecilia’s past tugs at emotions while providing ammunition for the bad guys in some disturbing turns and Flynn may be a bit rough around the edges but that didn’t stop me from developing a major crush on this tormented soldier. Keep Me Close drives readers to the edge with thrills and surprising twists in a plot that plot that is a perverse maze of obstacles and betrayals. The story retains its page turning status as new characters are introduced previous characters reappear including one of the bad guys who delights in the torment of Cecilia. The story draws a range of emotions from readers including curiosity, wrath directed at the enemies and empathy toward characters as they deal with all of those obstacles that are thrown in their paths to happiness. I was so looking forward to reading Keep Me Close as I just read Never Let Go, so as soon as I got this one, I started reading and was delighted when I couldn’t put it down until I had read every last word. Once again, Cynthia Eden has created a world full of thrilling suspense, dynamic characters, and an original plot that guarantees that readers want more, which means I am waiting impatiently for the number three, which thankfully is due to be released in December.
