Review –
Okay, I will start out by saying that I read this before the Ebola outbreak came to the United States, but having said that, what happens in this story could all be coming true. It’s very scary. If you can handle doom and gloom and gore then read this series and see what may lay ahead of us.

A very steamy piece of erotica well worth the read.  This is the first in a series but I didn’t like it well enough to invest myself in following another series.
