Title: Viable Threat
Special Forces soldier and medic Walter River would give anything to snatch more than a few seconds of down time to see if he can rattle the no-nonsense and incredibly hot Dr. Lloyd he's protecting, but dodging explosions, snipers, and student radicals who've unleashed a lethal bio-engineered microorganism have made that almost impossible. Maybe he'll get a chance—if he can figure out how to keep them both alive.
CDC microbiologist Ava Lloyd races to find a cure for a bio-terrorism organism sweeping El Paso. The few stolen moments with her very hunky bodyguard River have been explosive, but no matter how alluring he is, she can't afford to get distracted. The clock is ticking, people are dying by the hundreds, and once this crisis is solved, they'll both be off on their next assignment, thousands of miles apart.

Wow!!! This is the first book I’ve read by Julie Rowe and I’m pretty sure I’m gonna need to pick more up. Totally digging her writing style and the way she pulls readers in. Impressive.
Walter River is a Special Forces soldier who specializes in many things, but has recently been given the task of protecting a CDC doctor (Ava Lloyd) who’s trying to find patient zero of a deadly outbreak in El Paso. Yep, it’s a lot to take in immediately, but it works…stay with me. Within minutes of reporting to “duty”, River is helping medical respondents care for outbreak patients, kills a man and is nearly blown up.
Ava Lloyd is a CDC doctor who’s first field responsibility is a dozy. Thinking she’s alone in a coffee shop believed to be ground zero for the outbreak, she starts to collect samples. Only she’s not alone. One minute she’s talking to a potential threat, the next…well…the next she’s literally thrust in to a non-stop whirlwind to try to identify the cause of this deadly outbreak. Oh…and her partner is ridiculously hot and actually respects her. So there’s that.
This ^^^^^^, this is just the suspense that happens within the first few chapters. This is non-stop suspense, and I mean NON-STOP! Be prepared to turn those pages faster and faster as more and more drama unfolds, exposing the mastermind behind the deadly outbreak. Although, truth be told, I figured out who it was early, but it didn’t stop me from finishing. After all….I had to find out if River and Ava got their HEA, right?
