The Cajun dive in the middle of the godforsaken swamps wasn’t exactly Trap Dawkins’ idea of fun. But the GhostWalker wasn’t there for a good time. He was looking for her. Cayenne. It’s where she found her victims. Poor suckers. Then again, who wouldn’t want to leave a place like this with a woman like her?

It’s not Cayenne’s fault. Locked up, experimented on and never knowing kindness, she was bred this way—with a heart of pure venom. Trap understands her. He survived his own dark past and he shares her desire for getting even. But now Trap’s greatest danger is Cayenne herself. Because what’s inside her is hard to control—especially when it’s aroused by a lover as reckless as Trap.

TOO MUCH SEX. Seriously, I love this series. I love the matching of wits between the various Ghostwalker teams versus the dastardly Dr. Whitney and we didn’t get enough of that. Also, the subplot of Trap and his uncles wasn’t developed as well. But the whole alpha male thing was emphasized ad nauseum.
Cayenne was rescued from her cage in the last book [book:Viper Game|22043566] and we learned that her dna was spliced with a Black widow DNA. So from last book, we went from snake DNA to now spider DNA. Yikes!


Let me say this: According to National Geographics, black widows are solitary except when mating. So Trap expecting Cayenne, who lived in a cage all her life, to make good decisions in more social settings is ridiculous.
Also, Trap constantly dominating Cayenne seemed weird considering I was expecting her to either eat him or inject him with venom after they were intimate. He seemed like another jailer and an overbearing partner. He did seem to love her but he has a very rough way of showing it due to his own jacked up family situation. He wasn’t as sweet as I would have liked for her.

But I love the whole family dynamic with Wyatt & Co. etc. It added humor, history as well as a sense of collective strength. Dr. Whitney and these extra animal experiments are becoming more and more twisted. I love this series and hope the author gets back to the heart of this series, stopping Dr. Whitney.
