The Judas Contact (Boomers #1) by Heather Long

Hope may prove their most dangerous threat.

Boomers, Book 1

Doctor Ilsa Blaine
Codename: Doc
Abilities: Designs programmable bioware, enhanced understanding of brain chemistry
Mission: Research, analyze and troubleshoot the team’s active microchips

On the cutting edge of neuroscience, Ilsa is developing microchips that can be inserted into the brain and deliver information. The applications are endless, but her current goal is just to get dogs to return to their owners should they ‘become lost.’ When her college roommate turns up asking for lunch, she’s hardly prepared for the chaos that ensues or the revelation her chip changed the world, and the lives of five heroes from the future. And now they need her help…

Garrett Fox
Codename: The Viper
Abilities: toxins, poisons and assassination, he can kill with a touch
Mission: Protect Ilsa Blaine

One of five desperate men sent back in time to save the future, Garrett volunteers to be the doctor’s guinea pig as she studies their neuro-chips. It’s not his first time being a lab rat. In close quarters, the unthinkable happens—an attraction that could kill Ilsa. Drawn together by science, and on the fast track to destiny, Ilsa and Garrett must save his team from their chips before they can end them, and maybe Ilsa can prove to Garrett he isn’t toxic to everything he touches…least of all her.

Heroes come in all shapes and sizes. An alliance with the modern day Halo has given their leader a taste of hope. For these five lonely soldiers, the single emotion may prove their most dangerous threat.

My review:
Fun, action packed romance. Fans of the Avengers and X-Men will love this book.  The author has created a very scary world and her characters are the hope for making it a better place. In this story we have Doctor Ilsa Blaine who’s work has been perverted by the bad guys and whose help the good guys need to fix it and Garrett Fox who can kill with a touch. Garrett is an interesting guy. He can’t touch or be touched and it affects his view of the world. Ilsa refuses to give up on him and that may make all the difference in the world. The secondary characters are fun and I look forward to their tales. If you want to find out about Rory & Michael read Yesterday’s Heroes
