Overview

FBI Agent Joe Roberts wants that instant chemistry like his sisters, Eva and Taylor, have with their husbands. After years of searching, he’s ready to give up on that romantic notion. Then, he meets Madeline. The problem is she’s his contact on this dangerous case.

Dr. Madeline Pierce works in nanotechnology research. When she discovers a criminal network within her medical facility, she’s partnered with Joe. Throughout the investigation into the production and distribution of illegal drugs, Joe and Madeline struggle to stay professional despite their intense attraction to each other. She wants to trust his sweet words but wonders if she’s just a fling.

Police Chief Matt Connor adores his wife, Eva, and works hard to keep his family and rural town safe. When farm animals become violent and meth labs become abundant, his calm demeanor is tested. Eva Connor, a petite spitfire, has an opinion on everything and you know it whether you want to or not. However, her confidence is shaken when she’s used as leverage against Matt’s inquiries. With this case now personal for Matt and Joe, they will do whatever’s necessary to protect the women they love. As the ensemble hunts for this new bio-weapon, the dangers intensify putting their lives at greater risk.

These intertwining relationships must transform into stronger bonds if they want to win against this horrific threat. Love should trump evil, but will their love for each other survive these tests without severe repercussions?

    This book kept me guessing the whole way through. Every time I

    This book kept me guessing the whole way through. Every time I thought I knew what was going to happen the book took a different turn. This kept me turning pages till the very end. I will admit during the first 2 chapters of this book I was slightly confused as to what was going on and where the storyline was going, but then it comes together. There is a lot of detail and description on the scientific side of things that a reader can easily follow along with what is going on and what is being talked about between the characters. Christina Thompson did a great job of bringing the characters to life and letting you really get to know all of them. I would highly recommend this book to all of my fellow readers!

    Wow what a book. It has everything that a person could want in i

    Wow what a book. It has everything that a person could want in it. Action, intrigue, murder, and romance can all be found in this amazing story. What I liked about this story is that it shows what can happen when science runs amok. Things that should be used for earth shattering medical breakthroughs are instead corrupted into a weapon in this story. 




    I loved all of the twists and turns that this story provided. It managed to keep me entertained to the point that I read it in one setting. There was depth to the main characters as well as just the right amount of depth to the supporting characters. They all managed to stand out in their own unique way.
    I definitely give this book 5 stars. If you are into action/mystery books, then this would be a great book for you to read. This author does not disappoint. I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.

    The first chapter of Chemical Attraction was overwhelming for me

    The first chapter of Chemical Attraction was overwhelming for me with a lot of character names to remember and the things that distinguish them from one another. I worried I wasn't going to remember all of them and how they're related or know each other, but as the story progressed, I needn't have worried. The main characters soon stood out from the rest. 

    Eva and Matt, Joe's "sister" and brother-in-law, have such a loving relationship, and I loved the fact that they're still so hot for each other after nine years together. They made me feel like they're going to feel that way for each other the rest of their lives. Marriages either become dysfunctional or don't make it for long at all so many times in novels, so I found this refreshing. 

    The attraction between Joe and Madeline was palpable from the start. They're both intelligent and self-assured people, making them evenly matched which I really liked. They work well together, and the tantalizing prospect of them becoming a "real" couple was always just out of delicious reach, making you desperate to find out if that's in the cards for them.    

    Thompson takes time building the characters and their interactions before getting to the action of the story, so when something happened, you really felt the impact. At first I felt frustrated with getting to the action, but had she rushed things, the story wouldn't have hit me as hard as it did. The way she set everything up made Chemical Attraction worth reading. I'm definitely looking forward to the sequel.

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Thompson has a natural writing style that somehow adds to the in

    Thompson has a natural writing style that somehow adds to the intensity of the story.  She doesn’t employ any gimmicks other than good, old-fashioned storytelling in a modern light.  She lays out her scenes in a very vivid and visual manner, allowing her audience to immerse themselves in the beauty of the scenes while being caught up in the suspense of the story.  Thompson masterfully keeps her audience on their toes, taking them on twists and turns that you’d never imagine while keeping them fully and completely engaged in her exquisite story.  And at the same time, steamy romance melds its way into the mix.  

    Thompson’s characters are off the hook as well.  Although they are caught up in off the charts events they are also human.   Family and humanity reign in this novel, while each character still remains true to themselves.  Somehow Thompson shows how her characters are able to go above and beyond without ever betraying what makes them intrinsically themselves.  Now, that isn’t to say that all of her characters are stellar citizens.  There is also a very strong representation of the darker side of life.  These characters are developed in such a manner that they send chills down your spine.  I’ll never be able to look at a man with a red tie the same way again.  

    Overall, this was a fast paced and suspenseful novel that kept me on my toes throughout.  It was a brilliant introduction to Thompson’s writing that has definitely sparked me to read more of her work.  I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this one to anyone.

    Please note that I received this novel free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    Chemical Attraction is a romantic thriller with a very original

    Chemical Attraction is a romantic thriller with a very original plot, great characters, a medical mystery, some sci-fi elements and plot twists! I enjoyed everything about it - only asterisk is that (in my opinion) the cover (while really beautiful) does not fit the suspenseful FBI thriller.  There is romance, but it is the mysterious events and entertaining characters that make this book shine!




    Dr. Madeline Pierce suspects that someone in her medical research facility is ordering large amounts of materials used for making meth.  She reports her suspensions to the FBI, and they send Agent Joe Roberts to investigate.  He goes undercover as Madeline's boyfriend, and together they try to determine who took the chemicals and why. Meanwhile, the small farming town they are in is experiencing vicious animal attacks. Are the events connected? With the help of Joe’s sister, Eva,  and her law enforcement husband, Matt, Joe and Madeline hunt for answers.  The closer they get to solving the case, the more dangerous it becomes for everyone involved.




    Chemical Attraction is a great book.  It is well written, beautifully crafted and fast paced.  The mystery is woven throughout the story, and it is very exciting to see the truth come to light.




     The characters are an ensemble of very intelligent people: scientist, cop, FBI agent and medical professional. They are quick witted, resourceful, brave and very funny.  The interaction between the main characters is one of my favorite aspects of the book.  Honestly, between the plot and the people, I couldn't put the book down.




    Agent Roberts and Dr. Pierce begin the case pretending to be a couple.  As they spend more time together, however, they don't have to fake affection.  Their relationship is a sweet and romantic aspect to this thriller about meth labs, animal attacks and bio technology.  The secondary characters are equally entertaining, and while there are several people in the book, it is easy to keep track of who's who.  The fact that the author had so many moving pieces interact and navigate toward the suspenseful conclusion is remarkable.  There is a sequel, and I am trying to clear my calendar so I can get to it quickly!




    If you enjoy romantic thrillers and medical mysteries, you will enjoy this book.  It has a 5 star average on Amazon, with everyone agreeing it is well written, perfectly plotted and a really great read.

    I'd actually give this a 3.5 Dr. Madeline Pierce fears there is

    I'd actually give this a 3.5

    Dr. Madeline Pierce fears there is something horrible going on in the company where she works. She thinks there is a huge meth operation and distribution, so she calls the FBI. They send Agent Joe Roberts. There are so many things going on in her little town, animal attacks, testing outside the laboratory, murders, and to top it off Madeline is instantly attracted to Joe and they must play boyfriend/girlfriend to find out the answer they are looking for.

    I received this from Paranormal Romance and Authors That Rock for an honest review! To be honest this wouldn't be something I picked up for myself. Well that teaches me to limit my reading list! :) I fell in love with Christina Thompson's characters immediately. They were funny, charming, smart, and witty; they had amazing chemistry together and I loved the witty comebacks. This book contained it all, and I mean all, sex, murder, mystery, betrayal, and so much more. I am glad I got a chance to read this book because I will most definitely be looking forward to the next book in the series~!
