A Paul B Review: Germ (Demon Elite #6) by April Kelley

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

germ-by-april-kelleyJeremy Russell is the Demon Elite team’s computer genius.  While most of the men are out in the field, he stays behind and acts as the point person for the team.  Surveillance, information, and hacking are the tools of his trade.  He also tries to keep the guys from getting too serious with his flirting over their communication system.  When Reggie Mize was rescued a short while ago, he developed a major crush on him.  But being the socially awkward computer geek that his is, Germ decides he might not have a chance with him.

Reggie Mize has been beaten down his whole life.  First it was his father that subjected him to emotional abuse.  With his father gone, his sister Victoria picked up where their father left off.  Luckily for him, the Demon Elite team rescued him before Victoria could sell him into slavery.  Now he is living in the team’s estate worried that either his sister or his father’s men will come after him.

During a game of paintball among the team, their boyfriends and Reggie, Germ vows to protect Reggie throughout the game.   At the end, while Germ had been “killed,” Reggie had not been.  For once Reggie trust that someone is not out to hurt him.  They make a date to go out shopping with others in the team.  While at the mall, the hit man currently working for his sister finds him because of a tracking device that was implanted inside of his arm.  Germ cannot believe that Reggie had not alerted them of this fact and think the shopping trip is a trap to eliminate his team.  Reggie does not want the others harmed and is willing to turn himself over if Germ isn’t hurt.  While all members of the team escape, they must still deal with the hit man and Victoria Mize once and for all.  Germ will have to see that Reggie is not like other men and work his way back to trusting the abused man and how to deal with him.

This sixth book in the Demon Elite series keeps the action and passion going.  As each man of the team begins to find their respective partner, the net is slowly coming around their enemy and former boss Victoria Mize.  The awkwardness of Germ and Reggie comes from different places and understandable.  Germ is more comfortable in front of a computer while Reggie has been psychologically abused most of his life.  This is a romance you cannot help but root for.  The story of how Germ got his nickname was cute and not at all what I thought it would be. 

The cover art by Latricia Waters is absolutely perfect for the novel.  Germ is pictured as the sexy geek that I would have pictured him.

By Scattered Thoughts

At over 50, I am ruled by my terriers, my gardens, and my projects. A knack for grubbing about in the woods, making mud pies, and tending to the injured worms, bugs, and occasional bird and turtle growing up eventually led me to working for the Parks. I was a park Naturalist for over 20 years, and observing Nature and her cycles still occupy my hours. From the arrival of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds in the Spring to the first call of the Snow Geese heading south in the Fall, I am entranced by the seasons. For more about me see my bio on my blog.
