Plague by Victor Methos

Genre: Apocalyptic/Thriller/Virus/Plague
Release: August 14, 2012
Sold by: CreateSpace
Buy the Book: Amazon

THE DEADLIEST DISEASE IN HISTORY . . . A lethal pathogen appears on the Hawaiian island of Oahu. Dr. Samantha Bower of the Centers for Disease Control is handed the case and asked to investigate its origins and containment. A MYSTERIOUS FIGURE THAT IS NOT WHO HE APPEARS TO BE . . . Samantha discovers a lethal pathogen unlike any she has encountered in her lifetime. Extremely contagious with a mortality rate higher than any disease ever recorded, it is an extinction level event. A man with an intimate knowledge of the microorganism offers her help. But Samantha Bower begins to suspect he is not who he says he is. HUMANITY HANGS ON THE EDGE OF A CLIFF . . . Samantha begins to realize there are forces at work that she can't understand. Pressures are being applied from outside sources and not all of them wish for a vaccine. But Samantha is sure of one thing: if a vaccine isn't developed, humanity may soon be an endangered species. . .

This is a really interesting plot. Pre-apocalyptic happened in Hawaii that found its way to the Mainland. Another scary "what if" and act of terrorism. I read this together with the Gemini Virus and I cannot choose which I like best. Aside from the virus there are some horrific scene about how humans cope and take advantage of an already scary situation. I love Samantha and how she wouldn't back down and really annoyed with the ending. I have to wait for the next book?! I was not expecting  a trilogy but there it is I have to see what happens next.

Gemini Virus by Wil Mara

Genre: Thriller/Apocalyptic/Virus/Plague
Release: October 2012
Sold by: Forge Books

Bob Easton thinks he has a cold. Before he dies in agony, four days later, he infects dozens of people. Local health agencies become quickly overwhelmed by the sick and dying and beg the CDC for help. Dr. Michael Beck and Cara Porter, a member of the Epidemic Intelligence Service, race to identify the deadly bug. They can't cure it until they know what it is.

Dennis and Andi Jensen and their children are terrified. Schools and offices close. Fresh food disappears from store shelves. Three of their children's friends die. Their neighbors are dying or running away, fleeing the unstoppable infection. Desperate, the Jensens join the exodus, making a nightmarish journey to their isolated mountain cabin along empty roads, through abandoned towns, past looted shopping malls.

The superbug—and the panic—quickly spreads beyond America’s borders. On a packed plane, someone coughs—and at their destination, the pilots are told, “you can’t land here.” US military bases are quarantined. Yet the virus continues to spread. Some believe the plague is man-made. Others see it as a sign of the end times.

In the lab, Cara Porter makes a potentially fatal mistake. In the mountains, Andi Jensen tells her husband that she doesn’t feel well.

The world is running out of time.

When this book was offered to me for review. I cannot wait to get my hands on it. But life has a way of making me delay my reviews, so I apologize but I did drop everything I was doing when I got this book, which if I can remember correctly, I was planning a birthday party. Ok! let's move on.

In accepting this book, I have managed to wriggle myself out of the romantic comedies and start off a chain of apocalyptic virus themes book that later all kills 90% of humans.Frankly I was hoping not to like it as much, but man this book is awesome! The moment patient zero, Bob "germaphobe" Easton died I knew I had to get into the bottom of his death. I mean seriously the man had a seriously issue with uncleanliness, how can he be the first person to go?! Ah! the irony. The next thing I knew I was ready all the gory stuff on how the virus spread, how and what it does to you until you die, and how it felt so real that I was scared that it might really happen to us. I was paranoid for two days and that the over whelming urge to go stock up on hand sanitizer, and join the Dooms Day Prepper wagon.

I had a lot of guesses on who was responsible for this virus. The government is number one, some stupid sceintist made a mistake or went crazy, then a terrorist attack, mother nature felt like ending us and lastly it will leave us a vague open ending kind of thing. You have to find out, go buy the book now.

The Marriage Bargain by Jennifer Probst

Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release: Entangled, September 2012
Sold by: Entangled

A marriage in name only...

To save her family home, impulsive bookstore owner, Alexa Maria McKenzie, casts a love spell. But she never planned on conjuring up her best friend's older brother—the powerful man who once shattered her heart.

Billionaire Nicholas Ryan doesn’t believe in marriage, but in order to inherit his father’s corporation, he needs a wife and needs one fast. When he discovers his sister’s childhood friend is in dire financial straits, he offers Alexa a bold proposition.

A marriage in name only with certain rules: Avoid entanglement. Keep things all business. Do not fall in love. The arrangement is only for a year so the rules shouldn’t be that hard to follow, right?

Except fate has a way of upsetting the best-laid plans…

The Marriage Bargain is one of the books that I chose in my quest to find a more Twilight-esque / Fifty Shades of Grey-ish book. I am not ashamed to admit that Twilight gave me crazy butterflies in my stomach and Fifty Shades was pure unadulterated shock to my hormones. So I was looking for something in between, and this book gets it. The ridiculous idea of fake marriage has never worked in every form of entertainment, so it was safe to say that they obviously fell for each other after all the secrets. Nonetheless it was very entertaining. I am kind of annoyed by Ms. Mckenzie's philantrophic efforts on why she needed the money. The effort was not really clear to me, surely there are other ways but whatever that is a very small flaw in the story, just really wanted to mention it. It is really a nice fast read that any woman can enjoy.
