Suspense, Intrigue, and Romance ... this book has got it!
Rebecca Royce has built a world that almost tears your heart out just reading about it. Families torn apart by genetics that no one can predict or control. There is one main Committee that tries to control all aspects of this new Condition that has popped up. With only one company in charge, they will make all the rules and control all the people and their mysterious powers. Someone has broken in and kidnapped a child. Not just any child, but the great-grandson of one of the most powerful men in the world. This little boy will become a pawn in a deadly game of control. This story follows Addison Wade as she attempts to find her nephew. She will use any method and go to any length to find him, including working with the Conditioned people. The Conditioned man she needs to work with is Spencer Lewis. But Addison is a Wade and the Wades are the family who created Spencer's little prison. So the Conditioned may not want to help her. Spencer has one of the best abilities to find missing people. An accident with his partner has left him a bit unstable and unable to go very far into the 'dark place' to help Addison. But helping her might make things better for the other Conditioned people. She might one day sit on a seat on the Committee and be able to make the rules that affect his life. So helping her would be helping others like himself. This was a great suspense novel, I never knew what to expect next. I was squeezing my eReader so hard that it was turning pages by itself for a while there. When sparks started to fly between Addison and Spencer, I wasn't sure if it was the story or the eReader! I will be looking forward to the next book in the series. ** Note ** I was given a copy of this book for review purposes. I did not receive any chocolate, promises of glory, or any other compensation for my review.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

A compelling mystery/love story
In Eye Contact, Rebecca Royce takes us on a thrilling ride filled in equal parts with heart-pounding intrigue and the softness of a growing, Cinderella-style love. Here, in Royce's rendition of Earth, those whose genetics grant them extrasensory powers are termed "Conditioned" and confined to compounds, and are only allowed outside to help those who can pay for their special abilities. Enter heiress Addison Wade, a young woman who defies her family to seek the special assistance of the Conditioned's most powerful finder, Spencer Lewis, to help locate her kidnapped nephew. Sparks fly as the two wend their way through a complicated mystery, and as they walk the dangerous paths together, both discover that success will mean learning to look beneath the surface of all things they have ever believed. My highest recommendation.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
