Project Genesis: Book One 

40,970 words

Stripping is her super power.

Thirteen years after a glowing pond left Chloe Sanders with special abilities, she uses her “gift” to take out criminals when she can. If she’s got to be part of a freak show, she’s going to do some good while in the buff.

You have the right to remain naked.

Color blind detective, Jacob Greiff, has a few "gifts" of his own and would like to find a solution to his quirks, but his priority right now is busting the vigilante leaving burglars tied up with panty hose and women’s scarves. He wasn't ready for the petite, bare foot brunette in an enormous trench coat at his crime scenes--or seeing her in vivid color.

A match made in nuclear waste....

Despite his own supernatural abilities and the raging lust between them, Greiff wonders if Chloe isn’t some kind of nut who gets off on public nudity. She insists she can disappear from view when naked, and that he’s the only one who can see her when she’s in disguise.

..or is it love?

Their shared past comes to a treacherous intersection when a man shows up at Chloe’s apartment and informs them at gun point it’s time to report for duty—or else. A hero and his reluctant eye-witness will have to come to a truce, find a way to keep their clothes on, and save the world in the blink of color-blind eye.

    First of all, I hope Jennifer writes another book in this series

    First of all, I hope Jennifer writes another book in this series because I NEED to know what happens to some of the other characters introduced in this book!  CC was loaded with adventure and suspense, not to mention the hot love scenes filled with true affection. I couldn't put this book down!!!

    Interesting and Unique Characters!

    Find this review and more at Lusty Penguin Reviews!

    Covert Craving, the first installment of the Project Genesis series, in an entertaining and action-filled paranormal romance by Jennifer James.

    Chloe Saunders has the unique ability to become invisible and uses her ability like a vigilante setting up criminals to be caught by the police. All is going well for Chloe until she discovers that Detective Jacob “Jake” Greiff can see her when she’s invisible, which stuns Chloe. Chloe is a sassy character who speaks her mind, which I just loved. The witty banter and underlying humor between Jake and Chloe provide many laugh-out-loud moments. Jake, who is completely color blind, sees Chloe in color, which intrigues him, so he wants to find out why she is hanging around his crime scenes. As his investigation progresses, Jake and Chloe fight their attraction to each other. Their sexual chemistry sizzles, and their intimate scenes are enticing and hot. Despite learning that their meeting wasn’t a coincidence, Jake and Chloe realize they really do love each other, making them a couple to cheer for. James consummately develops Chloe and Jake’s relationship while also creating a tight plot with multiple story arcs and striking twists which keeps the reader fully engaged with this story.

    With interesting and unique characters as well as an engaging plot that leaves just enough unanswered questions, Covert Craving is the perfect kickoff to a spectacular new series. I’m really looking forward to visiting these characters again and again.

    I received an eBook copy from the author for the purpose of an honest review. I was not compensated for this review, and all conclusions are my own responsibility.

    **Copy of book provided in exchange for an honest review**

    This is different from your standard paranormal romance and that fact gives the book an edge no other has. It intrigues you from the start and refuses to let you go. Even at the end you are still wanting more.

    For a start how cool would it be to become invisible? Just think of all the trouble I could get into! Oh the possibilities............

    The book is full of action and keeps you on your toes for the most part. There are some great action scenes and nothing it as it seems. Not quite sure how your finger nails or heart rate will hold up with this one but it's well worth it.

    The scenes flow from one to another flawlessly and this only helps you to submerge fully into the book and completely blocking out what's going on around you. Not always a good thing when like me you have mastered the art of walking and reading.........

    I absolutely LOVE the characters Chloe is my kind of kickass girl while Greiff is just your average NYPD detective with an ability to smell you out miles away. I love the fact that the book is told in first person narrative and from both Chloe and Greiff's POV. I love the little one liners that are thrown in here and there.

    I really enjoyed this book and I'm looking forward to seeing where the rest of this series takes us.

    Jacob Greiff is a color blind cop, except when he looks at Chloe

    Jacob Greiff is a color blind cop, except when he looks at Chloe Saunders, her he sees in full color.  Chloe isn’t normal, she can disappear, but only when she’s naked.  So what happens when these two get together?  A lot more than either of them expected.
    They quickly learn that two separate groups want them and they aren’t about to let that happen.  With the help of some equally great, and not so normal, characters they embark on a journey to escape and hide.
    Jacob and Chloe have a great connection with each other and that continues throughout the book.  They are fun, witty and enjoyable.  
    I enjoyed reading this story.  It was well written, the pace was perfect and Jennifer James once again wrote a book that keeps you engaged from page one.








    *I was given this book for an honest review but the opinions are my own and didn’t affect my rating.*

    Jennifer James finds an awesome balance between excitement and smexy fun with this story.  Forget the case that Greiff is on, the real focus is his abilities and where they come from.  Chloe’s focus is her future, or having one to be more precise.  Their chemistry is sizzling, but it’s the tip of the iceberg in their story.

    The love scenes are scorching, but also funny which makes it feel more authentic I think.  The ending is sweet and leaves you wanting more.  What’s in between is full of action, devious and ambiguous characters, and a mystery that keeps you glued to the page.  I can’t wait for the next installment for too many reasons to mention!

    Full of witty banter and such fun, unforgettable characters, Covert Craving is an awesome read that crosses the genre lines of UF, PNR, and even contemporary.  Make sure to grab a copy!

    I sat and read this book in one day. I really enjoyed it and it

    I sat and read this book in one day. I really enjoyed it and it was easy to read and follow. The plot is paranormal where innocent children are sent to a summer camp in their youth by unsuspecting parents and they are genetically altered to allow them to have special powers or gifts. Two of these special people are drawn together not suspecting at first that the meeting and the draw are engineered and that a trusted roommate and a trusted partner set them up. There is betrayal and gun battles and love and escape from the scientists tying to re-obtain them for further study. good story !

    Wow is just not enough to cover how I felt after reading this book. It all starts with Chloe who has a super power, not your normal super power mind you, but one that has her cross paths with Greiff. Greiff has his own secrets; well it seems everyone in the book has their secrets. Good or bad. I never knew where the book was going to lead until it unfolded on the pages. I was surprised a few times. I loved the relationship between Greiff, or Jake as Chloe calls him, and Chloe unfold. This book with its original ideas and theme has been by far the best book that I have read in the last few books.
    I sure hope there are more in the series. I am excited to read about the others who appeared in the book and catch up with Chloe and Greiff.
    The book was flawlessly written and flowed so smooth that I was done with it in less than a day. Ms. James sure knows how to write so that you feel submerged into the world and emotions she weaves. I highly recommend this book. This book was given for an honest review, and in no way affects my thoughts or feelings.

    Wow,loved it, great story with interesting twists and turns, great action scenes, steamy sex and even somethings to make you laugh.

    The glow-in-the-dark water at Camp Sunny Woods left Chloe Sanders with the ability to disappear from sight.
    While Color blind detective Jacob Greiff smokes to weaken the overwhelming messages his nose sends him. There is the overwhelming attraction they have for each other that they are finding hard to fight, shots fired, running from the bad guys plus other suprises and developments. Book started with a good work up before the action packed scenes, answered some questions and i can't wait for the next one to be out even if its these characters again or we get to know more about ones we did meet or will meet in future books.

    Great story with a plot different then I had read before.

    Greiff is an awesome guy, who is color blind. Not just color blind in the traditional sense. He sees in shades of black, white and gray. So when he see's Chloe in color she stands out in more than one way. He follows her to find out more about her.

    "A glance over her shoulder revealed hotness with handcuffs was headed her way"

    Chloe is unusual too, she can disappear at least when she is naked. Which comes in handy for her side job of fighting crime.

    Two people brought together with unusual gifts. They are joined by a hysterical and offbeat group. The transvestite roommate, the voo doo priestess neighbor, the interesting not sure what he is landlord, and the lucky the sex fiend porn addict computer hacker. Together they embark on a journey to get to safety and find out who and why all these people are after them.

    Its non-stop action, with awesome one liners and quips that will leave you laughing, and hot sex that will leave you wanting a cold shower….oh the shower scene….OMG!!!!

    This is was awesome book, I can’t wait for the next one. I want, no need to know more about all the characters we met in this fantastic book!
