Synopsis from Goodreads:

Lacey Jordan is expecting dinner, and hopefully, an engagement announcement. Not her own, of course. After two serious screw-ups, she's all but sworn off relationships. When she arrives at her father's house to celebrate his future happiness though, he's nowhere to be found. As the hours pass, the worst scenarios Lacey's mind can conjure send her rushing into action. However, reality proves even more frightening as she discovers that her father's recent scientific breakthrough is one that people would kill for. To make matters worse, the source of the information is the one person she'd hoped to never see again. Caleb Mansfield, her father's former protege and her former lover, needs Lacey's cooperation, and the very trust he'd stolen years before. But Lacey can't be certain if Caleb's working with her or against her. Running out of time, she has nowhere else to turn. As the trail leading to her father narrows, Lacey becomes a target, risking her life to save him. Too late, she understands that with Caleb back in her life, she's risking her heart as well.

My Review:

This novel started out a little slow but was quite interesting with all of the background information that Grey fills her readers in with. It kept getting better from there. By the end I was quite immersed in the lives of these characters. I quite enjoyed the biotechnology behind the story. It was a brilliant basis that made this story stand out in the crowd, even if the romance portion of the novel was a bit predictable at times. But hey, it’s a romance novel. They tend to all have a HEA.

The main characters in this novel were quite interesting and driven. I became rather attached to them and they were definitely the type of people that you wanted to see succeed. The supporting cast could have been a bit more developed so that we had more of an idea who they were, but they did serve their roles quite nicely as they were.

Overall, this novel presented a very cohesive whole that brought you from point A to point B with a smile on your face. It was an enjoyable read that I’d recommend to those who enjoy romance with a bit of suspense.
