Guest Review by Julie: Viper Game by Christine Feehan

Series:     Ghost Walkers #11
Pub. Date:Jan. 27, 2015
Publisher:Berkley Jove
Length:448 pages

Wyatt is your typical Feehan hero - an over the top alpha male but I liked him! His interactions with his grandmother showed a softer side most don't glimpse. With his teammates he showed confidence, loyalty, and humor in dangerous situations. 

A product of Dr Whitney's crazy trials, Pepper is the equivalent of a siren. Designed to lure men to their death by using her voice and body, she's classified a reject because she refuses to use her abilities. She's smart, moves with the speed of a cheetah, and is trained as a soldier, but longs for the kind of family and life Wyatt has. 

For most of the book, I felt Wyatt and Pepper's relationship was purely physical. Their romance was steamy; I just wish their emotional connection had been more believable. It was obvious with the kids just not so much with each other. 

It was a treat catching up with Nonny because she's Nonny, and possibly my favorite secondary character in the series! Mordecai, Malachi-that man is a bottomless pit- Ezekiel, Draden and Trap round out Wyatt's team providing humor and levity to a variety of situations. 

Viper Game was a fun entry to the Ghostwalker series! It's a solid read with great suspense, fantastic action, and new enhancements that had me reminiscing about old Terminator movies.

Julie is a transplanted military brat that now calls the Midwest home with her own romantic hero, daughter and two furbabies. While she toils the day away in a medical office, she would really rather be reading! Julie loves historical romance, steampunk, romantic suspense, military romance (duh!), paranormal and urban fantasy.  She loves a kickass take-charge heroine, lots of action, and the all-important HEA. Julie can get down with an alpha male, but she does not discount a nerdy hero with a sexy brain.

Julie and Bambi met at the RT Convention where they found themselves standing in many lines, sharing their similar reading interests, and fangirling over attending authors.
