Reena (Red) is the leader of the Resistance and has two men after her. Cade is a bounty hunter hired to bring her in by the government and Blade is a black ops assassin assigned to kill her.  Both men realize they can’t go through with their assignments, once they get to know her.

Book five in the Outlaw Lovers series, Resistance, gives the readers a lot of information about the women who are fighting to get their rights back after the Claiming Law went into effect.  There is also a surprising twist toward the end that may have a lot of bearing in the next book about the last Outlaw brother.

This has to be my favorite of the series so far.  Suspense and betrayal abound, along with the very intense chemistry between Cade, Reena, and Blade.  All three learn about themselves, and each other, as they are trapped by a blizzard in a cabin, but misunderstandings soon follow as trust doesn’t come easy to any of them.

Readers learn more about the worst strain of the virus and its effect on women. Reena is also infected, but this knowledge has been kept very quite within the resistance, which makes it a very big surprise to both Cade and Blade, and explains some of her later actions.

Some of the situations they all got involved in were funny, but others were extremely life-threatening.  Secondary characters were introduced during some of these scenarios that helped with the misunderstandings, even if some were unintentional.

Based on some of the references towards the end, I am looking forward to reading about Matt, the last Outlaw brother.  Based on this story, I am sure it will be heart-pounding, and yes, the books need to be read in order.
