Tobias and Kincade are part of a cryptic organization that’s trying to uncover the secrets behind the Regime.

The computer monitors buzzed to life, showing multiple views of the police compound through the cameras the Op team wore. Eric and others of the rescue waited outside the perimeter in SUVs, while the rest snuck into the precinct from the sewage system below. All the members’ locator devices were now live, and I could hear talking through my ear drum.
“They better be glad I like them,” one male member said. “It doesn’t smell like roses down here.”
“Yeah, they owe me,” another agreed.
“Looks like the cavalry’s coming,” Rafi exclaimed.
“Oh, thank goodness,” Susan said.
The virus that I was installing disabled the alarms. The rescue squad crept in from below, but it would be much faster for them and God knows who else to escape from the outside—half the party had been captured. The lights would be out in the facility shortly. Lights out or not, the enforcement would retaliate. It would be slower for everyone to try to climb down through the sewage system.
Letting the team know the plan, I announced through their devices, “Okay everyone, lets stay sharp. I’ll be disabling the lights to buy time. When I kill them, the cell doors will also open, so be ready to haul ass. Mike is gonna blow you a way out.”
“Roger that,” Cade replied.
Stefani’s eyes were glued to the screen. She glanced at me. “This is exciting and scary at the same time. Will they really be able to pull this off?”
“Don’t worry. Our members are well trained. I’m sure they will.”
She gave me a contrite smile. The rescue had just touched down in the precinct, sneaking in successfully. Their cover would be blown soon—they couldn’t invisibly sneak to the cells. The four internal crew entered as close as possible to the block where they were being held. Now it was time to pray that they really could pull this off.
It being late at night did play in our favor—the compound wasn’t as heavily guarded. Two enforcers at the counter next to the cell block where Cade and the other members were had spotted Mike. One male tried to hit the alert alarm, frowning when he came up blank.
Yeah, I took care of that.
His comrade attempted to draw his weapon, but two from the rescue team were faster. Randolph aimed his gun at the officer’s head. Winston held his gun on the other enforcer, while the fourth member of our crew stayed farther back. She was keeping an eye out for anyone coming from the front of the precinct. With the two enforcers contained, Mike continued to the metal door of the cell block. From the internal cameras that I’d tapped into, I spied one of the officers guarding that section coming out.
“One is headed in your direction, Mike,” I relayed.
Mike snuck to the side as the enforcer came out the door. Mike acted quickly, swiping his feet from under him. He took his club and hit the officer in the head, knocking him out. The remaining enforcer in the cell block was being distracted by the inmates. I’d already scrambled the codes so that all the doors would open.
“Proceed, Mike. It’s just one, but tread lightly, because he’s armed,” I gave him the okay.
“What’s up on the lights?” Mike asked.
The damn program was taking longer than I’d anticipated. Come on, sucker! “Give it a few more seconds.”
I’d been able to give them a play-by-play thus far, having tapped into the compound’s camera feed. But the cameras in the building were about to crash, along with the lights, so we’d have to rely on the rescue team’s embedded cameras to see what was happening—couldn’t have any trace of them being there. Mike pulled the metal door with ease as to not alert the enforcer. He spotted him not long after Mike entered and got a shot off. Luckily, Mike was prepared, so he was able to dodge it. Wasting no time, Mike launched a smoke canister onto the floor.
Temptation Trials Rebellion (The Tempted Series #2) by B Truly
Genre: Dystopian Romance
Age category: New Adult
Release Date: November 30, 2018
Can love defeat the greatest temptation … lust?In a post-apocalyptic nation where the land of the free is now run under a dictatorship, there is one factor that holds the key to keeping world order—love. The new Regime controls the emotions of the heart. It’s their most vital law. At the age of twenty-one, every citizen is forced into an arranged marriage. The only way to escape the arrangement is to enter the Temptation Trials—a government-sponsored reality TV show where the loyalties of the contestants are tested by Tempters and Temptresses who are impossible to resist.
Catalina enters the Trials as a Temptress in hopes that she can win the funds to save her brother. Sahara’s been ridiculed in the eyes of the public. By being a Temptress, she’ll be able to have a fresh start. The Regime promises that if she fulfills her role on the show they will wipe her slate clean.
The problem is that the Trials are rigged for failure. In all the prior seasons, love’s rival, lust, has proven to be more powerful. No contestant has ever won the Temptation Trials and be allowed to stay with their chosen partner. Lutheran Eminence, the world’s dictator, has shown that he’s the ultimate matchmaker.
As the Temptation Ball approaches, conflict is at an all-time high. Most couples are too hurt by betrayal to reconcile. With the odds stacked against them, Kincade and Tobias try to mend their relationships, hoping that the greater good will prevail.
Attempting to uncover the true meaning of love may cost the contestants more than they bargained for—it may cost their souls.
