Synopsis from Goodreads:

Florida investigative reporter, Whitney Steel, has lived in the shadow of her legendary father long enough. To prove herself she needs to find the “Big” story.

She found it.

Now it may kill her.

After Whitney receives a lead pointing to the world’s first cloned human, now a small child, she vows to unravel the truth. However, sifting through the facts proves to have dangerous results, including death threats and murder.

When Whitney is nearly killed, but is saved by undercover FBI Special Agent, Blake Neely, he refuses to let her get in the way of his own objective—at least not right away.

Caught in a lethal game between a billionaire obsessed with genetic perfection, his hit man’s thirst for retribution, and a Colombian drug lord fresh out of prison determined to make Blake pay for his twin brother’s death over a decade ago…

Can they save an innocent child before it’s too late?

Faced with tough choices, with deadly consequences for many—Whitney soon realizes that sometimes a story becomes more than just a story.

My Review:

Holy intrigue within intrigue! What a brilliantly thought out and well put together romantic suspense.

This was definitely an intriguingly phenomenal read. Cresswell is an amazingly captivating and suspenseful storyteller who is able to switch gears at the flip of the hat. It’s just like real life. One moment she has you on the edge of your seat with suspense, the next you’re giggling at the budding relationship, and then your heart is breaking because the unthinkable happened. It’s all the scarier because it’s becoming possible. The premise of this novel is a definite possibility in today’s world. All of this happens while she keeps you enthralled within the pages of this novel.

The entire cast of characters that Cresswell has developed for this novel is amazingly well developed. Even the characters who don’t make it out of this story alive are well developed individuals. That said, none of them overshadow the main characters. These two individuals become as well known to you as your next door neighbours. They are strong, loveable individuals that you want to see succeed. It’s easy to feel for them throughout their trials.

Overall, this was a brilliant, suspenseful, romantic novel that is complete in and of itself. It also leaves room for a sequel, where we get to see more from these individuals whom we’ve come to know and love. I cannot wait to read more from this awesome author.
