Review: Running Scared by Shannon L. Butcher

Synopsis: Lexis Johns has one purpose: to free her best friend from the hands of the Sentinels. And Zach, the Sentinel she has been running from for months, has one goal: to convince her that their destinies are entwined. For the magic that Zach has absorbed could destroy him if he doesn't find the woman who can channel it for him. And he knows Lexi is the one.
From an early age, Lexi has been taught to fear the Sentinels. And now she is an agent of a group out to destroy them. So when Zach finds her, it is Lexi's change to strike at the heart of the Sentinels. But, as Lexi sees Zach's courage, selflessness, and honor, and she begins to doubt her beliefs - and is faced with unbearable choice. (from the back of the book)

Review: Like the first two books in her Sentinel Wars series, this deals withe one Sentinel finding his mate. Again, Butcher creates real main and secondary characters, compelling plot lines and interesting twists. My favorite part of her stories is the secondary story lines that connect all the books, which, to be honest, is my favorite part of the book. While the story focuses on the main hero and heroine, it is not only about them and therefore the story has a wider scope, making for a deeper romance novel.

Prude Note: There are several sex scenes, and few graphic sexual descriptions. Most are easy to skip, althought the one liners are not.
