Unfortunately the strong language is rather too strong, frequent and used by every character without exception, which did rather put me off the people and setting. If they're like that in Australia, male and female, in their thoughts as well as words, over a dinner table or an office desk, why would I want to go there?
There is emphasis on workout training and various martial arts. The main characters practise something called MMA. I think this probably stands for mixed martial arts, having read it in another thriller, but we are not told. Performance enhancing drugs, steroids and supplements are used and discussed, with more than one warning about the consequences of taking them. I wish there had been warnings about tattoos as well. The inspiration seems to have been 'Beautiful Disaster' as the opening is quite similar and the guy is heavily tattooed, risking hepatitis every time and as far as I'm concerned, looking like he needs a wash. Wait'll he gets wrinkles.
The slight SF element is just the enhanced fighting and strength and some enhanced senses and appetites. No science. No shapeshifting which is when we usually see these enhancements. Good marks for thinking of a non-fantasy way to produce this outcome. The romance is strong with several adult scenes and a developing respect and relationship. You will get more out of the read if you are into any martial arts.
I have loved reading this series and the book seem to be getting better and better. This book involves around Dylan and Vanessa. Dylan is the Hot, sexy centre operative who is a martial arts expect and his life becomes complicated when he meets Vanessa. Vanessa helps the centre bring down a guy named Big John who is involved in a life of performance - enhancing drugs. It's really hard for Vanessa because she is really close to Big John and sees him as a father figure but she knows that what he is doing is wrong and he needs to be stopped. There is an instant attraction between Dylan and Vanessa but Dylan keeps a steely resolve and doesn't want to get close to her.
They have to work together in this latest mission while Vanessa and Dylan deal with their inner demons as well as there attraction to one another. It is really an awesome book and read and i have only scratched the surface of what this book is all about. Highly recommend and it deserves 5 stars hand down. I'm really, really excited for book 4 as it's about Jazz and Quade. I'm a huge fan of these too and i love how Natalie teases us with little titbits in each book so far. REALLY CAN'T WAIT!!
If you haven't read books 1 and 2, go and read them first! Finding Trust (book 1) and Finding Judgement (book 2).
I was already familiar to The Centre and this series, after loving Braydon and Rihanna's story in the first book. Although this book is a standalone, I liked how I already knew the background to the Centre and the characters.
Dylan, had been introduced in Finding Trust. So I was aware of him briefly.
Ok, so although another member of the The Centre in this book. This is a totally different story and another really clever plot is played out.
Dylan '"Ice Dragon" Thompson is the mysterious and hot thing in the world of MMA. He's like a machine, nobody can beat him and he is flawless.
Vanessa Aldridge is someone who has practically grown up inside a gym. It's her life and everything that goes on within the gym, she is aware of.
What follows is an extremely clever and detailed story surrounding performance-enhancing drugs and the effects, and danger but also how far people will go to get them and those surrounding the distribution of them. I have never read anything about MMA/gyms/performance related drugs in any stories so I actually l learnt so much when reading this book, that's how much detail goes into these books.
The Centre has taken this on as something they can sort out in their mysterious and covert way. The Centre themselves are still such a clever and unique topic, which I loved in Book 1, but I don't want to spoil what the situation there is.
So there begins the connections between the Centre and Vanessa and the Gym she has grown up around and now works in.
What I love about the Centre Games series, is just how unique the stories are.Read more ›
