Was a fairly good read. Two brilliant/intelligent CEO’s that fall for each other as they deal with enemies that are trying to steal and kill. Heroine invented something revolutionary, and someone will do anything to get there hands on it.

Gabe and Lauren are cute, sweet and definitely have chemistry!

A new to me author recommended by a very favorite author whose books I can't put down. I didn't think I could lose on that recommendation.

This romantic suspense held my interest from start to finish. It was set in a different environment from what I am accustomed to reading and I really liked that variation. The suspense was well-written and the characters were multi-dimensional and a perfect match in my opinion. Each were strong and intelligent leaders in their fields and CEOs of their compani

4.5 Stars

From billionaire CEOs, scientists, and mercenaries, this story really does have it all, and more.

Lauren is full of corporate espionage and is set inside of a billion dollar biomedical company. Lauren is a 25 yr old brilliant scientist with a new and innovative biomedical prototype which could revolutionise the diagnosis and treatment of patients but despite her brilliance, and her company’s security measures, her computer system is hacked and suddenly all that Lauren has been working fo
I was given an Advanced Reader Copy in exchange for an unbiased and honest review.

As it is right now, I'm giving Lauren a 3.5 rating. It's a fast-paced romp in a fascinating setting that is atypical of romance novels. Leigh James did very well in introducing the readers to the biotech world. I liked that she made her H/H both equally strong and she did not put unnecessary obstacles in their way in terms of realizing their love for each other. I also liked that through all the events happening w

I enjoyed the book. The story was good and kept you intrigued. I also enjoyed the writing. I did find it a little long. Story line stretched out a little too long,but was kept me interested.

I was apprehensive about purchasing this book at first. The story line was so out of the norm compared to other "billionaire" books. White collar crime in the biotech industry? Why not, no industry is safe these days.
Once I started reading, I was not disappointed. Ms. James takes you into the biotech world of Silicon Valley giving you a very realistic look at the highly competitive world of this industry, and a sizzling hot relationship that is born.
The book is very well written. The hero and he

A good book for me is a book that the sex does not over shadow the story. That the story would be a good read even if the sex wasn't there. This was a very good story with love and mystery. I give it a 4.5 stars. I would like to know when the next book comes out!

Leigh James is a USA Today bestselling author of contemporary romance. She's always been a writer. She started young (at six or seven), with a mystery about a socialite who drowned in a pool. (She'd probably been watching too much General Hospital with her Grammy!)
