Book Review: Viral Justice (Biological Response Team #3)
Title: Viral Justice (Biological Response Team #3)
Author: Julie Rowe
Stars: 3 out 5
I really enjoyed the first two novels in the Biological Response Team but I found this was to lack the same punch as the others. Alicia Stone is the body guard to Colonel Maximillian who worked hard to get where she is at and wont take crap some anyone even her superior's. Colonel Mazimillian hates violence will not raise his hand to anyone even if they threaten to kill him and wants to cure the world. Where the other two books focused on the adventure this one seemed to focus on the mutual attraction between Max and Alicia. Sex was right off the bat which took away from the Will They or Won't They. I also found the story basic and lacking the punch the other two novels had. It doesn't mean I won't keep reading the series. Not all authors can bat 100 every single time. I can't wait to read the next in her series.

About the Book:
Book three of the Biological Response Team (description subject to change)
Colonel Maximillian heads the US Army's Biological Response Team. He's responsible for the identification and destruction of any biological hazards and weapons the Army might encounter. He's sent to deal with a potential flu virus that's rapidly killing people in a remote Iraq village. Viruses he understands. Women, not so much. So, when he's assigned a bodyguard, a woman who's a trainer for the Special Forces Combatives program, he's all left feet and thumbs.
Sergeant Alicia Stone has always been the odd woman out and frequently in conflict with male officers who think they know her job better than she does. Max, however needs her more than anyone she's ever met. He's a soldier who can't shoot or defend himself in any way. She takes on the task of keeping him in one piece and teaching him the basics of combat, but it's tough to train a man who refuses to fight back. That might be a problem, because a madman is gunning for Max with a virus that might just wipe humanity out entirely
