Review: Double Dose (Human Design #4) by Katie Allen

Previously published under a different title

A double dose of happily-ever-after…

Speech therapist Daphne's neat, orderly life takes a turn for the dramatic when she's kidnapped and spirited away to a hideout deep in the Colorado mountains. Her captors? Gorgeous men—all escaped from a secret laboratory designed to build perfect supersoldiers.

Trauma associated with his engineering left Benjy mute, and Ari thinks Daphne's just the girl to help him recover. Held against her will, Daphne will be damned before she helps any of them—regardless of how electrifying she finds their touches.

But as Daphne's hunger for Benjy and Ari grows, so does her empathy for the other soldiers hiding out at the lodge. With danger from her own past threatening to resurface and an overeager FBI agent sniffing around, she needs to free herself, her men and the others.

Posturing over paperwork after a long day seeing patients, Daphne is tired. Tired of her stagnant life. As a speech therapist, she is all too aware of the need to communicate effectively-which never seemed to happen with her ex-fiancé.  Finding him with another woman has her rethinking everything she thought she knew. Her life takes a sudden detour when she is kidnapped from her office by a man who she though to be a misplaced patient.

She awakes to find herself in a secret bunker high in the mountains of Colorado. When she is asked to help a man left with a speech impediment, she is dumb struck that these people would go so far to kidnap her for her services.  Upon hearing their story of being forced test subjects, with the hope of making super soldiers, she would like to help, but not being held against her will. Empathy is her undoing, however. She learns more about these men, Ari-her captor, and Benji-her patient, she starts to bond with them.  She’s not happy about being there, but she can’t squash the feelings they invoke from her. She thinks she’s going wacko for sure. Plus, the past with her fiancé just doesn’t seem to ever go away and now is threatening the group she feels a part of. Can she put her past to bed without taking the whole group down??

I enjoyed this book and liked all the interesting additions these supersoldiers possess.  They integrated her into their group little by little, and she liked being a part of it. The circumstances that brought her there, war with her feelings she’s developed for Ari and Benji. My only problem? They kidnapped her because she was a speech therapist but she did virtually nothing to work with Benji to understand the root cause of his impediment and work on his speech. He also seemed less than pleased she was brought there to work with him on the first place. Outside of that, I liked the overall story of the guys fighting back against the laboratory that did these altercations to them.  Their plight is real and we are naïve to think this type of thing hasn’t already been going on in the real world. The suspense and drama added to the story and I was reading a mile a minute to get to the end!  I would have liked to have read more about the consequences the lab faced though. The book was definitely worth reading.
