David Jenkins is a Mind Hacker. He can read minds, erase or change memories and thoughts, and generally hack into someone’s head as he pleases. But he’s not doing it for fun. A Government Operative, David uses his ability to ensure the safety of common civilians from criminals. However, lately, there has been a certain criminal who seems to have the same skillset as him – and Grace Woznisky, a woman David is strongly attracted to, has become said criminal’s sick new obsession. Will David be able to protect her, all the while keeping his identity hidden? And how is he going to do that, if he’s on the verge of breaking the one rule he always followed: never get too close to a civilian?
Well this book sure had some interesting plot twists and sidestories to offer. Apart from the X-men kind of feeling – courtesy of the Jenkins family – it was also fast-paced and full of intrigue and action. The main villain kept twisting around and it was nearly impossible to fgiure him out, not until he decided to explain himself – which was rather late in the story, so bonus points to keeping the suspence that way!
The romance was definitely a nice touch, as it was given room to bloom and develop even with the insta-attraction factor giving it a headstart. The only thing that may have brought me down a little was how much everyone – especially Geneva – was hellbent on interfering with David’s decisions when it came to Grace. I mean, sheesh, guys, he’s the strongest member of the team, and he’s damn good and in love, leave the man be!
I’m looking forward to reading more of this series, Geneva’s story in particular – I have a feeling she’ll get a book of her own, that kind of tension I sensed just can’t be ignored!
