    Non-stop action and wonderful suspense!

    My Review:
    What a fantastic book! Jason and Matt, Lark's father, have been best friends for the past ten years. Jason is Matt's right hand man in his private security company, Hummingbird, and they are both working security when an operation goes very wrong. Matt watches as his best friend falls several stories down a staircase with no possibility for survival. What nobody realizes is that Hummingbird has been creating some medical technology that is untested, but very promising. Matt makes the decision to use that technology on Jason, even though it's not approved for humans yet and VERY experimental. The risk proves worth it and Jason survives, although there are some side effects that no one expected.

    Lark is Matt's daughter and her botany experiments have been vital to the technology responsible for saving Jason. It's been quite a few years since Lark has seen Jason and as far as she knows, he died in the fall in the staircase. So she's completely shocked when six months after his death, he shows up to secure her after an intruder tries to grab her and her research.

    Jason hasn't been out of the basement lab since his death six months prior. When Matt gives him his mission to go and secure Lark, he's surprised, but they've had a breach within Hummingbird and Matt doesn't know who else he can trust. Jason saves Lark, but Matt ends up getting taken instead.

    I've never read this author, but I was so excited about how good this book was. The action is non-stop with some great suspense. There is the romance story line between Jason and Lark with some sizzling scenes between them (one of his side effects is extra nerves which makes him super-sensitive to touch...wowza!) but there is also a romantic story line between Matt and the Jason's doctor which I enjoyed almost as much as the main one. All the main characters in this were extremely likable and I enjoyed reading their stories.

    Really just a fabulous book. I am going to have to look up more from this author!
