Romance Book Review: Dawn Endeavor 2: Hayashi's Hero
Series Connection: Dawn Endeavor
Genre: LGBT/ Shape-shifter/ Paranormal
Publisher: Loose Id LLC
Just found out that Marie Harte has started a new series which is a spin-off of the Circe's series she did last year. In this series this is a new generation of Circs. They still have some of the same genetic problems the last group encountered, like an over active sex drive. This is group of four genetically engineer soliders have been developed by the US army to be strong fighting machines. They work on government assignments to eradicate bad guys.
In this second story, Kisho Hayashi is part Japanese and part American. When he was in the Navy SEALs with his friends he never told them that he is gay, worried that they would turn against him like the rest of his family did. He keeps his secret as long as he can, until his mate finds him. Now he is conflicted. He wants to accept Morgan as his mate, but doing that will give away his secret.
Morgan has come to the team with information on the teams worst enemy, but he has a ulterior motive. He's known that Kisho is his mate, but he also knows he has to take it slow with the circ or he can lose everything he has worked so hard to hold on to. While the team and Morgan work to bring down their enemy, Kisho has to come to terms with no only his feelings for Morgan, but his given talent for seeing into the future. A future that might hold death for him and his friends.
I missed the first book of this series, although I got a hold of a copy this morning, even so Hayashi's Hero was a good starting point. As with the first series, the book was actioned backed filled with vivid descriptions and excitment. Sci-fi fans will enjoy this book as long as they are into LGBT because there are some wild sex scenes through the book.
Genetic manipulation has created the first super soldier, the Circ. Able to transform into hulking, inhuman beasts at will, the second generation of Circs, under Project Dawn Endeavor, is much more dangerous than the first. Psychically gifted, the secret four-man team who once worked for the U.S. Navy now belongs to the mysterious Mrs. Sharpe. Bent on cleaning up science gone wrong around the globe, Mrs. Sharpe sends the men of Dawn Endeavor out on behalf of the United States government. But there’s more to her agenda than patriotism. If only the team knew what she really had planned.
Kisho Hayashi lives in two worlds. Reality as he knows it is a team of men closer than brothers, Circs he would die for, Circs he would kill for. But in dreams and waking wisps of potential tomorrows, Hayashi is haunted by a single male face that confuses and worries him. He’s a trained weapon, comfortable in the beast that lives within his soul. But for a man who sees snatches of the future, he should know better than to think he can outrun his own destiny.
