For the fans of family romance and romance thriller suspense, Smoke Road, the third book in Scorch series is a wonderful read. It is a gripping and a fast-paced page-turner that will scare, thrill, arouse, and entertain you.

Smoke is a wonderful read in a six book series written at a rate of a novel a month by co-authors Emily Kimelman and Toby Neal. The duo is bestselling authors in their own right and team to write a six-volume book series.

Along the way, they must gather clues about the source of the outbreak and the elaborate conspiracy that caused it.

In Smoke Road, the hero is Luca, the eldest of the Luciano brothers. He is an alpha male and one of the Special Forces members trained to be like a superhero. Then there is the female protagonist Doctor Haunani Kagawa, an advisor to the United States national security and a medical researcher who has discovered intelligence about the source of the Scorch Flu- a neo-Nazi group in Texas who stole a virus created by the government and unleashed it across the country.

Scorch series plot follows a well-defined apocalypse scenario as most of the people fall sick and die the society and government fall apart. Gangs loot towns, and the communities are reduced to pirates, scavengers, slaves or raiders- think of the walking dead without zombies.

Doctor Haunani is charged with finding the whereabouts of the Noe-Nazis responsible for the calamity and is given a unit of National Guardsmen to protect her- the only military team close to the enemy that has not succumbed to the outbreak- which includes Luca Luciano.

As soon as Luca meets Kagawa, the two are irresistibly attracted to each other, and this is where Luciano becomes a jerk. It’s revealed that he is a man with deep-seated issues, he doesn’t trust women but only uses them for his own pleasure- and to be fair, many women use him for theirs. He is handsome, but he believes that all women are devious. On the other hand, Kagawa is apparently attracted to Luca. She is part Japanese, part Hawaiian and her past is comprised of an evil and nearly abusive relationship and hence carries a piece of beach in her pocket at all times which she holds and rubs to relieve anxiety. The plot is a romance story but with a pandemic apocalypse background. Luca and Kagawa are drawn together by biology and circumstance, and their personalities are so similar that the clash repeatedly. The duo drives each other crazy in different ways thanks to the strong chemistry they share.

Just like in real life- it’s the man who is wrong-. Overall, the book is wonderful, full of suspense, fast-paced action, and truly hot sex scenes. It is a real mark of author’s skill to be able to craft hot sex scenes without coming off as pornographic.
