Description: You learn your wisest lessons from your enemies. Assuming, of course, you survive the encounter.
Kendras is a casualty of war: injured, penniless, and quite possibly the last surviving member of the only family he’s ever known—the elite fighting force known as the Scorpions. When a steel-eyed stranger offers him medicine and shelter in exchange for submission and a secret task, Kendras has no choice but to accept. He is a Scorpion; he’ll do whatever it takes to survive.
But his true goal is to rebuild the Scorpions. Neither Steel’s possessive nature nor Kendras’s shattered foot can keep him from finding the last of his brothers… or the mysterious leader of the Scorpions, a man who held Kendras’s heart long before Steel tried to take it for himself. The goal is simple, the situation anything but. To rescue his leader and escape from Steel for good, Kendras must fight through a morass of politics and intrigue, where enemies are allies and even allies have hidden agendas.
Review: So much sex. Seriously this book lives on sex scenes. The story itself is quite interesting but the focus is on sex. I would have loved to read more about the scorpions and different interactions between them.
The relationship(s) would profit from more non sexual story, too, if you ask me. As of now I don’t get them, especially Kendras and Steel. It just felt strange and forced and… not-there?
I loved Widow though. He is way more interesting than the main characters and I did get him. Give me a book only about him any day.
