AUTHOR: Adrienne Wilder
PUBLISHER: Self Published
LENGTH: 340 Pages
A past that won’t let go…
After losing his job, Chase Sarim finds himself living in a shit hole apartment. His new neighbor calls himself Seven, wears aluminum hats and carries around a ceramic rooster. He also seems to know what Chase is going to do or say before it happens, and talks about people named, Nine, Three, and Four.
Chase knows better than to get involved with someone like that.
But some men are just too hot to resist.
A future of fear…
Seven has been running for his life ever since he escaped Sub-Floor. In order to elude those hunting him he can never have a home, never have friends…and love? It’s nothing but a weakness that can be used against him.
Hiding had become a way of life. Until Chase.
Greed, power, and corruption…
Dr. David Stone knows Seven has a secret. Why else would his colleague, Dr. Radcliff, help Seven escape Sub-Floor?
It wasn’t the loss of a defective precog that bothered Stone, it was the fact Radcliff was willing to die to keep Stone from knowing why he did it. Or better yet, how.
Two men, one love, brought together by a series of impossible circumstances and destined by fate for an entangled future.
But maybe fate has nothing to do with it.
I’m a big fan of all things psychic, especially when it deals with precognition, so this book was a lot of fun to read. Seven begins in Chase’s viewpoint. He’s down on his luck, having just been fired when he meets his hot, but very crazy neighbor. Chase is drawn to the man who calls himself, Seven, even though he feels like it’s wrong to like a guy who he’s convince is mentally ill. It’s only after a chance, drunken encounter between the two that Seven comes out and reveals to Chase that he’s not really crazy. Though Seven explains his situation and how he escaped from being a lab rat in an underground experiment, Chase doesn’t believe it until he comes in contact with the people Seven refers to as “Others.” While they struggle to end the abuses against the other precogs, Chase and Seven grow close.
This book was an action-packed erotic science fiction. I loved the world building, and the sex scenes were extremely hot. Though the other characters such as nine, four, three, thirteen, and eighteen were sometimes difficult to tell apart due to the numbers in the place of names, they all had very distinct personalities which I sorted out well before the end. As for Stone, he was an evil, twisted villain and I liked seeing his viewpoint. I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the next installment in the series. I recommend Seven to anyone who loves m/m erotic romance, and action-packed dark sci-fi.
RATING: I liked it!
