Aha! The previous books in this series have focused on the DNA aspect and how the parties involved have no choice. But Chase wants Samara in the worst way and goes about getting her, regardless of the opinions of his peers. Chase made the book for me as I found Samara a little dry and two-dimensional. I got the impression every aspect of her world was eligible for investigation and that the people in her life, including her son, were just results of experiments. Mind you, she was portrayed as a good mother with the expected affection, but her overall vibe was distant. I believe that is what drew Chase, the guy everyone knows and loves; he was drawn to Samara as she was his opposite in every way.
I've really enjoyed this series so far and especially like the world the author has crafted. As part of a series we get views of couples from previous books as well as teasers about the next book. The bad guys are satisfyingly bad with their evil agenda and we get lots of action as well as "action." I do wish that Chase and Samara had actually been tested though; it's just assumed they aren't a DNA match, unless I missed something while reading.
If you like Rebecca Zanetti’s military romantic suspense, you’ll love the Coded for Love series by Lynne Silver!
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.
Kidnapped with her son and forced into helping a rogue scientist with his experiments, Dr. Samara Jones saw no escape. Until the day she was rescued by a group of elite soldiers from the Program. Now under the protection of the Program, Samara is working to prove her innocence—and struggling to control the burning need she feels for Chase Stanton, one of her rescuers.
As laid-back as he is deadly, Chase is a well-honed solider who always responds to the call of duty, whether it’s a life-or-death mission or a scorching night of passion. When he’s assigned to protect Samara, he’s immediately drawn to the smart, headstrong woman, and confides a dark fear to her—despite feeling torn by his suspicions that she could be a double agent. Duty demands he resist temptation, but desire has its own demands . . .
