What they’re saying about it:
“This book was very addicting. I was counting down the hours at work so I could go home and read. Alexis is an employee of the movement here to protect people who have been chosen, by a group called One Percenters, to die. The people chosen are trying to find a way to help the fight on global warming and the government. Her assignment starts with the chosen subject Greg Meredith. She’s sworn to protect him at all cost when something changes in her orders. Instead of turn him in she’s told that she has to wait. Greg and her have to find a way to stay hidden and survive until the orders to bring him in come through. During this time they start to have feelings for each other that are against her rules of employment. This book has a lot of action and a relationship that is a fight to the very end. I didn’t want to put it down once I started reading it. Loved it! Can’t wait to read the next one Amanda releases.”
“A fun combination of action and romance. Alexis is a compelling character in a world that may not be far off from our own future. I would have preferred a little more action, as most of it is in the beginning and towards the end. But the romance makes up for it, as that one’s a fight all its own…with a satisfying ending.”
