Teague Creek has made a difficult decision that he plans to see through to the end. He has decided to escape prison along with a fellow inmate. They have come up with a plan that utilizes the outside contacts of Taz and taking a hostage from the medical facility. Teague knows that the female he has targeted will be the perfect bargaining chip. Teague’s goal is to get back several things that he values most in his life, starting with his freedom. He is prepared to do things he never thought possible several years ago. He has vowed not to go back to prison at any cost.
Fever was not an instant love for me. In the end I thoroughly enjoyed the book, but it can definitely be described as a slow build for me. The hero Teague had to get me to warm up to him. He is a prison escapee. He was in prison for a reason. I knew there would be forgiving circumstances to this. He is after all the hero. The circumstances surrounding this are slowly revealed. Teague is a very secretive man, with just cause. He also doesn’t let anyone in. He has been stabbed in the back by someone very close to him. He has some major trust issues. The more I learned about who Teague really is and all that he is trying to rectify the more I liked him. In the end I loved him. He’s a good man that will do anything for the people he holds dear.
I loved Alyssa! I loved her persistence. She is the type of person that does not give up on something she wants or believes in. This shows in her career and how she handles the whole kidnapping situation. She has a strong drive in everything that she wants or does with her life. She was scared, but she still held her head high while making her kidnappers work to keep her. She gave Taz and Teague hell and I loved her all the more for it. I can’t describe her as physically tough, but I’m still amazed at her tenacity. She also knows how to push all of Teague’s buttons. She never lets up on him and getting what she wants out of him. Did I mention that I loved Alyssa?
I will definitely continue this series! I am very curious about what happened to this group of firefighters in that warehouse fire. The warehouse fire is what adds the paranormal element to the book. Seven normal firefighters went into the building, six changed people came out. Conspiracies and cover-ups, I’m sure more intense drama will come from what happened to those men and woman involved in that fire. I want to know more about it, that is for sure. My curiosity was also piqued by Mitch. There is more to him and his career than he has revealed to his sister Alyssa.
I have a pet peeve that most people don’t. Cars wrong in books. The GTO in Fever has 4 doors. “Teague swung the back door open” (page 18) he didn’t, he couldn’t. GTO’s were two door cars. The closest thing Pontiac ever had as a four door GTO would be the G8. No one would ever refer to the G8 as a GTO.
