Hugh Johnson is nobody’s hero, and the idea of being in the limelight makes him want to growl. He takes care of his brothers, does his job, and enjoys a mellow evening hanging with his hound dog and watching the sports channel. So when sweet and sexy Ellie Smithers from his college chemistry class asks him to save millions of people from a nuclear meltdown, he doggedly steps forward while telling himself that the world hasn’t changed and he can go back to his relaxing life. One look at Ellie and excitement doesn’t seem so bad.

Eleanor Smithers knows that the Scorpius bacteria has and will change life as we know it, but that’s a concern for another day. She’s been hand-picked as the computer guru for The Brigade, which is the USA’s first line of defense against all things Scorpius, including homegrown terrorists who’ve just been waiting for a chance to strike. Their target is a nuclear power plant in the east, and the only person who can help her is Hugh, the sexy, laconic, dangerous man she had a crush on so long ago.

It was so different to still be knee-deep in the Scorpius crisis, but from another side. Hugh has joined the Brigade to fight against homegrown terrorists. He's the leading expert on the nuclear threat and there is definitely something to worry about. And while it was fun to watch these agents rush against time to save the little bit of humanity that is left, it was the romance growing between Hugh and Ellie that stole the show.

She had a crush on him in college and although he reciprocated her feelings, he wasn't ready for her. Ten years later, he's more than able to give into the passion that they share. The romance was rushed due to the circumstances (the world was ending after all), but I was still able to enjoy it and be entertained by the suspenseful and dangerous bits.

Damon's story is next and I'm excited to see this ex-cop's take on survival.
