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…

Rating: 4 Stars - Loved It

Thoughts: What a better way than to start a new genre with my favorite author. Mercury Striking was good for me as it is light in a Post-Apocalyptic world. Just enough gritty background setting here and there to really get the feel how life is after a disease has struck.
Jax has created a safe haven in L.A. He is a strong leader with no emotions and does not trust easy. Jax and Lynne have no strings attached sexual relationship. He needs it that way to keep a clear head to be in charge of everyone. When he is with her he feels human again not a killing machine in the world they live in now. Love that she is also on the same level has he is not getting emotional involved.
Rebecca Zanetti writes the best secondary characters. I did miss the close knit community she is known to write in her other novels. But I also understand that this group have not known each other long and have no past together.  They do all have their own personalities and voice. They have all got me curious.


  1. Delicious danger?! The synopsis piqued my interest, but your review convinced me to add it to my TBR! I haven't read anything by this author, and post-apocalyptic isn't typically my read, but I'm willing to give it a shot!

    1. Rebecca Zanetti is one of my favorite authors. He her writing voice and books just work for me.

  2. This one was actually one of my very few DNF's, but... there were extenuating circumstances. LOL It was my fault really because I picked it up when I was in the midst of a months-long reading slump. And was trying to force myself to read. Recipe for disaster! One of these I need to go back and give it another try. So glad you loved it!!

    1. Sorry to hear this did not work for you. Hate those reading slump times too.

  3. Your favorite author and I haven't read anything by her. I have to give her a chance and grab a book or two. I love post-apocalyptic books. So glad you enjoyed this one.


    1. She has many series and the ones I have read had enjoyed them.

  4. She's one of my favorites, too! I was okay with this one but need to get the next and see how it goes. I love her Sins Brothers so there was a LOT to live up to with them. lol


Hello Lovelies. Thank you for stopping by. I love to hear from you.
