Title: First Match - Coded for Love 6 Author: Lynne Silver Published: 5-2-2016 Publisher: Beyond The Page Publishing Pages: Unknown Genre: Erotic Romance Sub Genre: Military; Suspense; ISBN: 9781840846873 ASIN: B01F2AQY5W Reviewer: DelAnne Reviewed For: NetGalley My Rating: 4 1/2 Stars . The Program: an organization of elite soldiers with superior strength, agility, and intellect. These men put their lives on the line to execute the government’s most dangerous missions. Did you ever wonder how Shep became involved with the Program. You can now learn for yourself. Peter Shepherd was the first child born of in the genetic program. A sort of prototype. He was raised on the campus and on his first trip off on his own he meets Allison Macclesfield. He is shocked to find she is his match. Knowing this beautiful girl with dreams of her own can never be his he prepares to walk away, but the pull between them is too strong. Then the unthinkable happens and duty tears them apart. what will become of them how does Shep survive without his match? How does Allison go on with Shep? Does She achieve her dreams? First Match is the latest title in Lynne Silver's Coded for Love series, but I hope it is not her last. Ms. Silver prove short does not necessarily mean abbreviated. She managed to fit a full story in a few pages. Would I have liked more? Of Course, but I felt that way about each of the books in the series. Shep and Allison come alive for the reader. If you have not read any of the books in this series do not worry, they can be read as stand-alone book with very little difficulty. My rating is 4 1/2 out of 5 stars.
