Welcome to the new world. Things have changed just a bit. Big Brother’s not only watching you, he now has direct access to everything you see—thanks to the mandatory implant you get at birth. And Friday Jones has seen something she wishes she hadn’t. Something the authorities badly want.

With everyone out to kill her or steal her secrets, Friday turns to an outlaw and mercenary for help. One who has secrets of his own. Striker’s special abilities have kept him in the shadows for a reason, which means stepping into the spotlight aimed at Friday could get them both killed. But Friday Jones calls to the wildness in Striker, making her a hard woman to resist—and the only woman who could ultimately save him.

What a perfect blend of post-apocalyptic world building, comedy, great intelligence, paranormal elements, sexy romance, and edgy suspense! Striker and Friday had me from page one. Their interactions, misunderstandings, banter, attraction-you name it, they have it. And the snake...I’m dying over Sam ...more

This was a great Postapocalyptic/Dystopian/Sci-Fi/Paranormal romance (all in one).
Friday sometimes quickly crossed the line to stupid and did nothing but piss me off, but i loved Striker....

Another reviewer said this book was totally preposterous and she loved every minute of it. I have to totally agree! The dystopic set-up is fascinating and evolves throughout the novel.

Dystopia done right! The world building tells the characters' story, and you never feel like you're being hit over the head with how awful the world around them is.

Red Zone is a paranormal romance filled with lots of action and adventure. Microchips are implanted in everyone's brain and memories can be erased at will by those in charge.

Wow, what a pleasant surprise! I just saw the cover and, well, being a cover-lover I went for it. And "just browsing" immediately turned into reading intensely and not putting it down. This imaginative, fantastic story full of suspense, action and romance drew me in from the first page on.
