Overview

Deceived by Heather Sunseri

The passionate, impulsive Briana Howard and the sly, snarky Jonas Whitmeyer, make a perfect mess of a couple. Both are stubborn, smart and sexy. They're also human clones with supernatural powers.

Jonas had resigned himself to a solitary life on the remote island of Palmyra, home of Sandra Whitmeyer's clandestine clone-growing lab. With young clones now inexplicably dying, Jonas is torn between feeling responsible for cleaning up his mother's mistakes-alone-and his desire to be with Bree.

A heated tussle on Palmyra leaves Jonas and Briana further apart than ever. Bree storms off to Portland, Oregon, but not before encountering clones of a loved one lost long ago.

Jonas tracks down Briana in Portland, where they race to discover the truth about ties between the Howards and the Whitmeyers against a host of obstacles and enemies. Will Jonas and Bree find a way to be together amid an ever-shifting maze of deceit, misdirection and danger unearthed by the darkest of family secrets?

If you choose to read this book you will experience a book with a couple laughs and some nail bitting moments where you are wondering if the characters are going to be okay.There is a part in it between where the story setting between Portland and where Brianna leaves palmyra that is a little slow but after that is really good.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.... When I got a chance to read Deceived by Heather Sunseri, I was thrilled. some of my friends had recommended her to me so I jumped at the chance and she did not disappoint! I had not read the prior books in this series. this book kept me guessing clear till the end. and I never expected the ending to be the way it was. I am trying real hard to not give spoilers. Read the book! read the series! You will truly love it.!

This book begins and ends with excitement that keeps every page turn more and more thrilling and engaging. I was unable to put this down as you are immediately diving into Briana's world. Dr. Howard perplexed me and I thoroughly enjoyed his character because he was someone I did not know if I could trust or not. This book was a wonderful addition to the series and did not disappoint! You will certainly enjoy the characters, the twists and the ending!

I have to admit, up front, that I haven't read the last couple of books in this series YET. So one thing I really appreciate about Heather's style of story telling is that I could pick up on the characters quickly, and get caught up on what has happened since the first book. I absolutely loooove Bree! Her feisty nature gets her through whatever comes along at any time. She throws caution to the wind and dives head first into what needs to be done. Broken heart, Screw That! Scary past, eh Whatever! Lies, betrayals, murders?...Not going to stop her anytime soon! You can't help but love her! I highly recommend this Author, as well as this book! Couldn't put it down! I'm backtracking right now and reading the other ones!

Deceived by Heather Sunseri is the fifth book in the Mindspeak series. Brianna Howard has just graduated from high school and she is not sure what she wants to do with her future. Bree has decided to visit Jonas Whitmeyer on Palmyra (an island). But Jonas knows that Brianna needs to decide what she wants to do with her life and pushes her away. Jonas does not want Bree staying on Palmyra for him (not that they talk to each other about the situation). Jonas feels he needs to stay on the island to clean up the mess his mother, Sandra, made and he needs to figure out why clones are dying. Then Bree checks on two sick clones and sees something that sends her running back to Portland. Jonas and friends go after Bree (thanks to Raven’s ability to find clones) to see if they can help her (she does not want help). Something is going on at Howard BioTech that involves clones (tracker devices). Bree tries to cozy up to Vance Carrington (VP of Operations), but Vance ends up dead. Bree is the prime suspect and the police are out to arrest her. Bree must now team up with Jonas to get answers (especially since they have the police and IIA agents trying to find them). What is going on at Howard BioTech? Is Bree’s father involved? Can Jonas and Bree find out what is going on? Who is trying to frame Bree for murder? I found it difficult to summarize Deceived. There is quite a bit going on in this novel (I just gave you a small summary). Deceived can be read as a stand-alone book if you have not enjoyed the previous novels in the series (I have read three of the five books). The author does a good job of summarizing prior events. Though reading the novels would be helpful (and they are pleasurable to read). There are two things that I did not like about the book. One is that too much of the story (the first half of the book) was devoted to the romance (or possible romance) between Jonas and Brianna. They each went on about their attraction, their looks, etc. The other was the alternating chapters. One chapter told from Brianna’s point-of-view and the next from Jonas’. This went all through the whole book. I found it distracting. I wish the story had been written in the third person (makes for an easier to read novel). I give Deceived 4 out of 5 stars (I liked it). Technically, Deceived is a young (or new) adult novel, but I think that older readers will enjoy the story (like myself). I received a complimentary copy of Deceived in exchange for an honest evaluation of the book. I will always provide an honest and forthright review.

This book is the fifth book in the Mindspeak series. I have read other books from this author, including other books in the Mindspeak series. This book can be read as a standalone, but I don't recommend that. The previous books help you to understand what's going on and who these characters are..And no cliffhanger at the end though it is open-ended for future books. There is violence. The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat that info here. The main characters in Deveived are Brianna (Bree) and Jonas. The author managed to richly describe the characters, and get you caught up in the emotions between the Brianna and Jonas, even if you haven't read the previous books. There is plenty of action as well as twists and turns in the book. I really enjoyed this book and storyline. I look forward to reading more of Heather Sunseri's books. I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.... This whole series has got me hooked and after this I cant wait until the next one. Deceived is one of my favorites of the series and it could definitely be read as a standalone but would recommend to read the whole series in order. It would be much more satisfying with the background of all of the clones, adults, IIA and everything! I loved Jonas and Addison throughout the series and so happy with him and Bree getting their story with still having the others be a part. I thoroughly enjoyed the story line and just couldn't learn everything quick enough. It was a page turner, I couldn't put down. Very eager for the next book!!!

I was recently given an opportunity to check out Deceived by Heather Sunseri. I was a little cautious stepping into a story that’s fifth in a series. I find that the author is usually to vague or too repetitive at this point when referencing past happenings. Not so with Deceived! Something I am thankful for. I enjoyed myself while reading. I found it to be pretty believable. The heroes are neither invincible or reluctant. No love triangles! While not a book I would describe as action packed, it certainly moved along at a good pace. I will be looking to read the first four in this series! I hope you enjoy reading as much as I did. * I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.*

The Mindspeak series is amazing! The characters are well written and engaging and the overall plot is intriguing to think about. What if there were clones? And what if they had the ability to heal any disease? The author takes you into a world where the answers to these questions are revealed. After High School, Briana is dealing with the confusion of finding out she has been cloned, and facing the fear of what to do with the rest of her life. She seeks out Jonas, whom she has unresolved feelings for, on an island where the clones are being gathered and given a safe place to live. After feeling as though she doesn’t have a place with Jonas, she returns home and is immediately drawn into a mystery that is more complex than she could have ever imagined. I appreciate the author taking the time to explain the inner thoughts and drive of a character that was really easy to dislike in the first three books. Understanding Briana’s point of view, and why Jonas felt the way he did about her, really helped me find the redeeming qualities within her character. It isn’t necessary to read the entire series, as I feel this book explains enough of the history to engage the reader, however, I highly recommend it. I would definitely give a 4.5 rating if I could, the series is a wonderful read for adults both young and old.

"I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review." This is the first time that I have participated in a promotion like this…to receive a free copy in exchange for my honest review. It wasn’t the free copy of the book that drew me to this, but the chance to get the book early. I have enjoyed all of the books in the Mindspeak series by Heather Sunseri and couldn’t wait for Deceived. I wasn’t disappointed, it was great! To get the most enjoyment out of the book, you should read the Mindspeak series from the beginning. It is definitely worth it! I would highly recommend this series!

Oh my! Where do I even begin? This was pure awesomeness. I hadn’t read the previous books in the series so I wondered if I was going to need to read them before beginning this. You know, so I won’t get lost and confused. I didn’t! Don’t get me wrong, I will most definitely be reading the prior books, but I didn’t get lost or confused. Sunseri has amazing world building skills and makes the reader feel as if they are actually there. Her descriptions and everything were perfect. I felt as if I were actually there in the story. This honestly should be a movie. Her character building is strong. I loved reading Briana and Jonas’ story. Briana is strong, determined, and is confused. She is in love with Jonas, but isn’t sure what her life direction is or who she is. Jonas doesn’t think Briana deserves a guy like him or to live a life on an uninhabited island for the rest of her life. Due to this, he pushes her away, except she leave Palmyra and becomes concerned about her safety. I’m also curious to learn more about Addison. She’s a fascinating 10-year-old. The characters are also far from perfect. Sometimes they made some really bad decisions, but they also made some really good ones. They are relatable, fun, and were never boring. The clone thing was also quite fascinating and original. Briana has a passion for the young clone children and will do anything to save them when they go missing. Did I mention that it was pure awesomeness and I can’t wait to see what’s next in store for this series. Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from the author for my honest review, which I have given. I was not required to write a positive review and have not been compensated for it in any way.
