Blog Tour : Mercury Striking (The Scorpius Syndrome #1) by Rabecca Zanetti @RebeccaZanetti

The Scorpius Syndrome #1
Rebecca Zanetti
Releasing on January 26, 2016

With nothing but rumors to lead her, Lynne Harmony has trekked across a nightmare landscape to find one man—a mysterious, damaged legend who protects the weak and leads the strong. He’s more than muscle and firepower—and in post-plague L.A., he’s her only hope. As the one woman who could cure the disease, Lynne is the single most volatile—and vulnerable—creature in this new and ruthless world. But face to face with Jax Mercury…

Danger has never looked quite so delicious…

Slowly, like prey, she rolled over to face Jax Mercury, bare chested, cascading heat. A jagged tattoo made up of complicated lines and sharp edges wound over his left shoulder. She could make out a 20 in the center, covered and crossed over by lines. A special ops tat with a 44 in it shifted in the muscle on his left arm. A military designation of some type? “You promised,” she whispered.
    He opened one brown eye. “I’m not attacking you, am I?”
    “Well, no.” She inhaled, trying to slow her heart rate before a panic attack swamped her. She eyed him, tousled and relaxed. His right bicep held a tattoo with sharp lines, a shield, and the word Vanguard written through a heart. A dark lock of hair had fallen over his forehead, and a bristly shadow covered his square jaw, giving him the look of a lazy panther.
    Panthers didn’t really get lazy, now did they?
    He sighed and reached for the comforter, frowning when she flinched. Sighing, he pulled up the threadbare fabric to her neck, covering her completely.
    “I need to know what I’m dealin’ with here, darlin’,” he rumbled, opening both eyes and focusing on her.

I want to start by saying I felt reading the prequel 
The Scorpius Syndrome helped me greatly in understanding the world Ms. Zanetti created and portrayed in this fast-paced explosive story. 

Lynne our heroine is not only strong but she's brave and extraordinarily smart. She's a brilliant scientist.. But that actually caused her whole ordeal. Head of the CDC infectious diseases she's infected herself by the nearly world ending bacterial infection.
This caused a blue heart for her and this blazing mark has danger at her door and she's running. 

Jax Mercury is trained and ready.
 He's got followers and he's going to do whatever it takes to protect their territory. Lynne comes walking in demanding help and asylum. 

Jax immediately is drawn to Lynne and what follows is a breathtaking passionate story with two strong willed people finding just what they crave and need in each other. 

Jax was a hero I had to peal back layers to get to his true heart. Dominant but protective. He was just so intense. Pure male and so mysterious. 

Lynne tried to keep emotions at bay but these two connected on an elemental level.
There were so many side characters that absolutely stole my heart. Moments of sheer heartbreak and pure terror. But the bravery of this group of people took my breath away. Raze and Tace and you too Sami I really can't wait for your stories. September can't come soon enough.
If you love post apocalyptic romance with extreme emotions and profound connections you'll absolutely love this amazing story. I am so hooked.
