About this ebook

The Program: an organization of elite soldiers with superior strength, agility, and intellect. These men put their lives on the line to execute the government’s most dangerous missions.


Journalist Loren Stanton wants nothing more than to break a big story that will catapult her career. But the only item that’s caught her eye lately is Adam Blacker, a soldier whose rugged sexiness sets her pulse racing. When rumors surface that he’s part of a classified government program, Loren has every excuse she needs to get as close to him as possible, no matter what it takes.


As team leader of a covert ops group, Adam steers clear of all journalists, but there’s no denying the blazing passion Loren stirs in him. A scorching night together convinces him their connection is more than skin-deep, still, he’s not ready to let down his guard—his genetic enhancements make him an exceptional soldier, but what woman would want to commit to his high-risk life?


When a dangerous enemy from Adam’s past resurfaces and Loren insists on joining the fight rather than running, he’s forced to face a dark truth. This courageous, loyal woman moves him in ways he never imagined possible. And now that Adam knows she has his back, he also knows he has to win her heart.

I've put off reviewing this story because I just didn't know how to explain what the book was about - it's so unusual. Adam and Loren met at a party he was forced to attend and as a journalist she was sent to cover. They didn't know that life would never be the same for either of them now that they've met. Loren was Adam's genetic match so they were strongly attracted to each other and couldn't think of anything else. This scared Laren so she left early. When the guest of honor (a one year old child) is kidnapped, Loren's boss is annoyed that she wasn't there to cover the story. Adam is part of a secret government program of genetically enhanced soldiers. They are faster, stronger and have accelerated healing abilities. He's the leader of a covert ops group sent to protect the baby at the party. After meeting Loren he couldn't focus on anything else so missed the baby being kidnapped. The problem is once a soldier of the ‘Program’ meets his genetic match, the pull is so strong that nothing can stop their desire, and he can't focus on anything else so his attention to his mission suffers. The good part (or maybe it's another problem) is once they submit to this overwhelming pull, the couple will never want anyone else and constantly 'want' each other. They actually can't control their desire for each other. This sci-fi story was full of action and sex. A lot of sex. It seemed to me that most of the book was made up of sex scenes between the main couple. Since they absolutely couldn't keep their hands off each other, I guess that's to be expected. I enjoyed the plot of searching for the baby. It did have me laughing out loud a couple of times during the first chapter but then the action kept me from chuckling. It had a good ending but there were lots of things that didn't have closure so it leads into other books.

I normally like my books firmly planted in reality, well reality as I know it, so the whole genetically enhanced soldiers kinda weirded me out but it is a really good book otherwise. So good I will be reading the rest of the series.
