Romance Book Review: Circe’s Recruits: Derrick

Author: Marie Harte
Series: Circe’s Recruits
ISBN: 978-1-59632-901-0
Genre: Multicultural / Shape-shifter / Paranormal


Book three of the Circe's Recruits series was very much like the first two as the the Recruits work to take down the rogues from the Pearson Labs experiments. This books takes place immediately after, Kelly from book two of the series is kidnapped and rescued by Sabrina Torrence from the Pearson Lab.

Looking for answers to why Sabrina rescued Kelly Derrick and Hale set out to find the woman. When they do a month later Derrick finds himself very attract to Sabrina but he doesn't trust her.

Sabrina has no idea that her former employer had secretly injected her with the virus that makes her Circ. Even worse she isn't a Circ like Derrick and the others, but one of the ones that will go rogue if Doc doesn't come up with some kind of cure to help her. Time is running out and in the meantime there is a lot going on at the Labs in the background.

As I've said before I really appreciate Marie Harte's writing style and the story line is really growing on me, but I had some issues with this book that I didn't find necessary in the story line. Some of the sex scenes in the story will a little more violent and too hard core for my taste. That said, I do think it is necessary to read this book to further understand the series as a whole. I'm really looking forward to Hale's story with the clues I've read so far.

In the three years since Project Dawn disbanded, Derrick continues to fight the good fight. Now civilians, his squad--Circe's Recruits--works for a private organization bent on cleaning up the mess left in the wake of Project Dawn's rebirth. Pearson Labs continues to create Circs, people who have been genetically changed. When needed, these Circs take on an altered form, one neither man nor animal, but something in between. But unlike the squad, the Circs coming out of Pearson Labs aren't sane.

Derrick doesn't trust Sabrina Torrence. She's an agent for the Project Protection Agency. Their mission in life is to kill and enslave Circs for Pearson Labs. No matter that she helped one of their own escape from the labs, or that she's given them vital information they'll need if they want to take down Elliot Pearl, the labs' founder. Derrick knows she's got her own agenda. If only she wasn't so damned attractive, then he might be able to keep his hands off her and his mind on the job. Then a stunning circumstance forces him to reevaluate all he once thought. But will this new insight be too late to save their growing love?
