SUNNY: BOOK REVIEW - "Predatory Game" by Christine Feehan

SUMMARY from Goodreads: 
Saber Wynter is running from her past when she meets ex-Navy SEAL and Ghostwalker Jess Calhoun. But the riddles of both their pasts are about to collide, shattering the promise of their future with the ultimate betrayal.

Predatory Game is book 6 in the GhostWalker series.  This is a hot one.  So far all the books in the Ghostwalker series have been sizzling with incredibly virile, alpha males but not all couples have had great chemistry. Jess and Saber, however, are like an enzyme reaction...bubbling, sizzling, and setting each other off.  The story both illuminates and complicates the on-going Ghostwalker narrative. These stories are complex with unfolding political intrigue, scientists employing genetic manipulation,  and our heroes and heroines finding the will and the way to live a normal life.   It's enough to drive the loyal fan crazy and keep us totally hooked. Ahhh, it is so good.  

What I really love about this series is the balance between the Ghostwalker enhanced soldiers and their female counterparts.  The women are also enhanced and have special skills. Skills that are oftentimes more dangerous then the men'sThere is parity in the relationship that I really enjoy.  This is especially so in this book.  Saber has an extraordinary skill that puts people on edge.  Her touch is literally lethal and what that does to a person's psyche is immeasurable.  Jess is the only one who can provide her with peace and calm.  But because of their history, training, and enhancements, they cannot live a "normal" lifeThe life and legacy of Dr. Peter Whitney continues to dog them and all the other Ghostwalkers. The tension is high and the story is tightly written.  I loved it and cannot wait for the next installment.  

This is a fantastic addition to the series.  Don't bother trying to read this without starting this series from the beginning, but I promise you will not be disappointed if you do.
