Pulled me in with the sci-fi but too much romance

I was first drawn to this book because of Nina, Dani, and Maya. These three ladies literally kick ass and take names. Each of them are the result of extensive experimental modifications. They may look sweet and innocent, but they are anything but.

Meet the retired Silver Devils headed up by Knox. They used to be the hired guns, but now they’ve gone rogue for their own mission. They need the help of Nina, Dani, and Maya, but that requires double crossing them in the future. Can they pull it off in order to complete their secret mission?

Alright, I was super hype about this book, and it was neither great nor terrible. I’m pretty much indifferent. I really enjoyed the post-apocalyptic world and learning about all of the experimental modifications the characters went through leaving them with superhuman abilities.

I didn’t mind the romance story line between Knox and Nina, but the graphic sex scenes just seemed out of place. This was by no means a romance but yet their romance came to be. I’m still figuring that one out.

The last third of the book is when the action kicked up, but I felt the most disappointed. I don’t want to comment on it though because spoilers. Needless to say, I wasn’t happy with the way things turned out.
