Please say hi to Natasha from My Disorganized Ramblings! She was gracious enough to stop by and review Stronger Than Sin by Caridad Pineiro:
Dr. Liliana Carrera nearly lost her life to Wardwell scientists. She won't let them harm other innocent victims, like her new patient, Jesse Bradford. The former pro athlete had the best hands in the NFL . . . until an injury forced him to undergo Wardwell's experimental gene therapy. Now Jesse's gorgeous body is superhuman-but his strength comes at a price.
With Wardwell threatening his family, Jesse can't tell Liliana all he knows. Yet he can't resist her compassion . . . or her healing, erotic touch. As their passion flares, Jesse's body becomes dangerous and volatile. For evil men are plotting to change the face of humanity-and will destroy whoever stands in their way.
"Love. Despair. Need. Promise." Caridad Pineiro writes, and I think that sums up much of this book. Liliana is a doctor who has a real affinity for her patients. She hates their suffering and pain. She really truly does want to make them better. She is compassionate and honest. Jesse is an ex-NFL player, who had a horrible injury and was offered a chance. That chance ended up making him into a genetically mutated being., for lack of a better word. Jesse and Liliana meet when Liliana is recruited from the FBI to help make Jesse better. They have a mutual lust going on for each other but with the secrets and the evil men working against them, they have to do whatever they can to be together and fix Jesse.
This is the second book in the series, and I would highly suggest reading Sins of the Flesh first. I feel that it gave much more back ground information about the gene experiments that were being conducted, as well as more back ground information about what the Wardwell scientists were up to. Some of that information was missing with Stronger than Sin. Having previously read SotF, I was able to understand more of what was going on.
This book was a very quick read, and is an example of Ms. Pineiro's fascinating imagination. I do definitely recommend Stronger than Sin, especially if you have read Sins of the Flesh, or if you enjoy a well thought out science fiction/fantasy romance (I wouldn't really call it a paranormal).
