Mayhem's Warrior – Lindsay Cross

Captain T.K. Reaper only cares about his men; until he ends up falling for the one woman who can rescue his team.

Reaper has lived his entire life without love. Living on the edge with no fear, Reaper and his team volunteered for Project Mayhem — a top-secret experiment that uses a serum to enhance physical abilities in order to fight terrorism. Reaper believed the experiment would help save lives, but the serum only ends up taking them. Forced to go on the run, Reaper escapes the lab with his men, only to realize that they need the serum to survive. He has only one choice; return to the lab, and steal the source of the serum.

Caroline Cotter used to be a spoiled Senator’s daughter; now, she’s a victim. Kidnapped and held against her will to make the serum used for Project Mayhem, Caroline gives up hope of ever being free again… until Reaper enters, and frees her from her dark prison.

Yet the jungle outside is full of terrors, and government officials are hot on their tail. Reaper plans to keep the relationship between him and Caroline platonic, but undeniable attraction and explosive desire, coupled with Caroline’s adoration that he saved her from certain death, make it hard to resist the love story blossoming between them.

What will Reaper choose? His romance with Caroline, or the sacred vow he’s made to the brothers willing to die by his side?

So we all know I went down a deep hole of reading Lindsay Cross’ Men of Mercy series and when I finished all them, so I’ve read Redemption River (Men of Mercy #1)Resurrection River (Men of Mercy #2)Reckless River (Men Of Mercy #3)Ravaged River (Men of Mercy #4)Rebellious River (Men of Mercy #5)Ravished River (Men of Mercy #6)Revenge River (Men Of Mercy #7), and Mercy and Mayhem (Men of Mercy #8)(Operation Mayhem 0.5). So as you can see I went down a deep deep hole of reading her books so then I moved onto this series Operation Mayhem and I was excited to dive into this one. 

I loved Caroline, I was glad when I learned she had her own story especially when it didn’t exactly resolve in Mercy and Mayhem but set up for its own series which begins with this book. I really felt for her and everything that she had been through yet she was willing to put the last little bit of trust in Reaper which I felt they were adorably cute together. 

Reaper, I loved his character, he was willing to risk everything to try and get this serum which also included rescuing Caroline. I loved how their connection built over time. I also loved that when he did finally develop and listen to the feelings he had for her, he was willing to risk the life of his team to make sure she was safe. Also that she was never used a test subject again. 

I loved the action in this book, I also loved the connection that these two characters had. I fell in love with their relationship. 

Like the other books Lindsay Cross writes there is an overall arc for the books and I loved it, I cannot wait to read the rest of the books and found out about the serum and whether they can survive or not. The book has an amazing plot. I loved it. 

This story was extremely intense and it worked really well. I fell in love with the story and characters and I really can’t wait to see what happens with this series. Lindsay Cross is amazing and I have no idea what I’m going to do when I run out of books of hers because I am addicted.
