Title: Lie Close To Me (Lazarus Rising #5
Author: Cynthia Eden
Stars: 3 1/2
If you know me I have read everything by Cynthia Eden but this book seem to fall a little flat for this reader.
I felt like I was reading the same story as the other 4 in this series. While the characters are different something just seem to drag this story out a little to long for me. There was more sex than story which bought the story many times to a stop.
The characters are super humans that are able to do everything at the basic human level but are able to come back to life making them the perfect fighting machines.
This story didn't stand out from the crowd but more or less faded from my memory as soon as I put the book down.
Not all books can be perfect.
Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for the advance copy
He’s Lazarus, and so is she. What happens when their worlds collide?
He’s hunting her. Maddox Kane has one goal—track Luna Ashton. He’s the best hunter on his team, finely honed and designed by Uncle Sam to be an unstoppable killing machine. He’s a super solider—faster, stronger, and deadlier than anyone else. Maddox keeps his emotions under careful lock and key because he can’t afford to feel. Feeling is too dangerous, and the attraction Maddox feels for Luna is positively lethal.
Luna has no memory of being in the labs with Maddox. She doesn’t remember the connection they shared when they were trapped in hell. She doesn’t remember escaping the facility. She doesn’t remember him. So when Maddox hunts her down, she’s terrified of him…and of the strange psychic and sensual connection they seem to share. Surely she shouldn’t want him so much?
Luna is different from the other Lazarus subjects, and Maddox isn’t the only one hunting her. She’s a dangerous threat to Project Lazarus, and Luna isn’t going to be allowed to just slip away from the U.S. government…or from the other super soldiers who are also desperate to find her. Every Lazarus subject has incredible psychic gifts. Some Lazarus subjects can make people see their worst fears, some can control minds…but Luna’s gift—she can show people their memories. Luna has the ability to restore memories to all of the other Lazarus subjects, yet she can’t see her own past.
And if you can’t see your past…then you never know what danger is coming, what killer is standing right next to you, touching you, lying to you…not until it is too late.
