Review: Renegade Passion by Lisa Renee Jones

Renegade Passion (A Zodius Novel)
Lisa Renee Jones
May 17, 2012

Sonia' a gifted physic who finds herself seeing visions of the many women who have started disappearing around Vegas. Visions that have now put her on the radar of Adam Rain, a soldier who was part of an experiment that made him a super solider, powerful and dangerous. Adam wants to control the city. He wants to control her.

Kel is also one of those super soldiers, a part of the unit called the Renegades who fight to protect humanity. A soldier who once planned to call Sonia his wife, until an Area 51 experiment changed his life, his future, Sonia's future. But now she is in danger, and nothing, and no one, is going to hurt her. She is his passion, his desire, his heart.

The man she believes is dead.


This book is a bonus novella to the Zodius series. The action takes place between Sterling and Damion's stories (books 2 and 3), but it isn't necessary that you read any of them prior to this one.

Kel is a GTECH "super soldier" - one of many military men experimentally injected with alien DNA to gain superhuman strength and other powers. He gives up the love of his life, Sonia, in an effort to protect her from the dangers of this new association. When her own gift puts her on the radar of some dangerous people, he comes back into her life to protect her.

Protecting seems to be what the Renegade men do best. But that and their superpowers are not all they seem to have in common - they are all super hot too (and why wouldn't they be!). The pages practically sizzle whenever one of them walks into a room! The love and passion Kel and Sonia felt for each other never went away and their chemistry is re-ignited immediately. The heartache they both felt previously is tangible and I found myself rooting for them both right from the beginning.

I haven't read book 1 or 2 in this series yet, but there is enough background information given that I never felt lost. If anything, I felt like the background almost took up too much of this short book, but the story of GTECH is so unique, you can see how that would be necessary. Based on the little bit I've seen of the other renegade men (and their women - who are all heroes in their own right too), I can't wait to read their own stories!

This novella is a super quick read, but it still packs in all the love, passion, action, and excitement you'd find in a longer novel. A must read for any fan of the other books in this Zodius series or any other romantic suspense!

Renegade Passion: 4.5/5 stars
