On the twenty-third day—he hunts, bringing the scum of the earth to justice; his justice. Ending up as a patient on Dr. O’Reilly’s table could either save your life or end it in the most horrific way.
New York City. The infamous city that never sleeps; the place where dreams either shine brightly or shatter into razor sharp pieces of metal. For Dr. Cian O’Reilly, it’s the perfect city to disguise his dark alter ego. As a top surgeon at Lincoln Hospital, he has access to resources far beyond the reach of the average person; the ideal cover for his double life. By day, he’s the epitome of professionalism. By night, the facade is stripped away and his true depraved self is revealed.
When Dr. Athena Payne joins the roster as a new surgical intern, Cian’s carefully constructed life is thrown into turmoil. With her sunny smile and wide-eyed innocence, she threatens to break through his iron-like exterior, exposing the man beneath. Following her dream of becoming a cardiovascular surgeon, her internship at Lincoln Hospital is the first step in achieving her goals. Something about the dark air of mystery that surrounds her new boss, Dr. Cian O’Reilly, leaves Athena questioning just what it is that the good doctor is hiding.
A killer on the loose. A doctor wielding a deadly blade. An intern caught in the midst of first love and a lethal web of murder.
Lincoln Hospital. Where the cure can be your worst nightmare.

I don't know why I am ever shocked when I finish one of Cassia's books. Every time I read her books I say to myself "How?" "She looks and sounds so sweet" and wonder how she comes up with such twisted stuff.
Athena is starting her internship at Lincoln Hospital. She wants to be a cardiovascular surgeon. Unfortunately, the head best cardiovascular surgeon is Dr. Cain O'Reilly. Athena doesn't know what to think of him. He can be a huge jerk one minute. Then, the next he's not.
Dr. Cain O'Reilly is barely holding himself together. Every 23 days he goes hunting. He takes the scum that have gotten away with their crimes. O'Reilly and his team take care of them. Every month it's like clockwork. Except now 3 things are happening.
1-his urges are getting worse. It's getting harder for him to wait before his next victim.
2-there might be a mole in his group.
He doesn't do relationships. Athena is making him crazy. She makes him feel things he's not use to feeling. O'Reilly wants her to succeed and to protect her.
This book was fast paced. I read it in one day. I still am not sure how I feel about O'Reilly. One minute I want to hate him and the next minute I like him. Athena I liked the whole book. But, I wish she would've told her best friend and fellow intern Sabine to STFU and put her back into her place.
I was stoked to see a few people from Cassia's Darkness Series. They were still up to their horrible antics. Hopefully, in Flatline we'll get more and see what's going on. Cassia is definitely twisted. Can't wait to see what happens next after that ending.
