Corrupted Hearts Series- Book 1
By Tiffany Snow
Brilliant, quirky twenty-three-year-old China Mack is totally satisfied with her carefully ordered, data-driven life. A computer prodigy who landed a coveted programming job at the cutting-edge tech company Cysnet before even graduating from MIT, China is happiest when following her routine: shower before coffee, pizza only on Mondays, bedtime at ten thirty sharp.
But then things start to get a little…unpredictable.
First Jackson Cooper—Cysnet’s rich, gorgeous, genius CEO—assigns China to a dangerous and highly classified project for a government defense contractor. Her sixteen-year-old runaway niece suddenly arrives in town, begging to move in with China. And then there’s her sexy but oddly unsettling new neighbor, Clark…
Quickly the Cysnet assignment becomes disconcerting—and then downright scary—as key staffers turn up dead. China suspects she’s being followed and isn’t sure whom she can trust. For the first time ever, she’ll have to follow her instincts, rather than logic, if she’s going to survive.
Follow Me by Tiffany Snow is the first book in The Corrupted series. I have to say that this series has caught my attention and may end up being my favorite series by the incredible writer Tiffany Snow. That is saying a lot because I have loved everything I have read by Tiffany Snow and give her books high praising reviews. She is the queen of romantic suspense. She is the supreme goddess of creating love triangles that leave the readers in love with both men, wanting each one to win the girl. The one thing that stands out in the Corrupted series and sets it apart from Tiffany’s other series is the leading female character, China Mack. China Mack has become my favorite female character of all time. I love her brilliance, her analytic mind, her quirky tastes, her odd OCD moments, and her clueless sense of romance. She is a breath of fresh air in the fictional world. It’s no wonder that she has captured the attention of two very different dynamic men. What she does with that attention is entertaining, comical, and brilliant. I want to be China Mack!
China Mack is a certified genius. Cysnet snapped her up before she graduated from MIT. CEO of Cysnet, Jackson Cooper ( who is almost as brilliant ) has assigned China a top secret job ( not that all of her jobs were already top secret- nothing unusual) where she will be strictly working with him. They are working on a high security project for Wyndemere, a defense contractor for the government. The project is highly sensitive and bodies have already started dropping. Not only is this new project going to create disorder in China’s work routine, it is going to change her predictable ordered life. The only problem she has had in life is keeping her pet fish alive.
Working on the Wyndemere project with Jackson Cooper is not the only interruption in the carefully, quirky ordered life of China Mack. Her sixteen year old brilliant niece, Mia, has run away from home and come to live with China. She is a lot like China in her IQ and brilliance but where she differs is that she is a normal teenager who likes normal teenage things. This is something China cannot relate to. China also has problems with the typical teenage habits such as make up and clothes all over the place, spontaneous decisions, and rose colored romantic notions. Her home has been invaded by a mutant teenage alien known as her niece Mia. Her life size Iron Man figurine has to be moved from her office so her Mia can have a place to sleep. That just won’t work and has China in a tailspin.
The third disruption in China’s perfectly ordered life comes from the new sexy neighbor, who looks just like Superman, that moved in next door. To top it off… his name is Clark! Clark is expressing interest in China beyond friendship. Mia is playing matchmaker and trying to make China her very own Eliza Doolittle. China has no clue about romance or dating. It’s a disaster in the making.
China’s world is spinning out of control. Her job at Wydemere has become extremely dangerous. Her assigned team is disappearing. The body count is going up. Her boss Jackson is not who she thought he was. He may be conspiring with the enemy. The big question is who exactly is the enemy? Is it our government, other governments, terrorists, or who knows what else? One moment Jackson seems on the up and up. He has also expressed romantic interest in China and she wonders exactly what is up with that. That leads to Clark, he may be an enemy as well. He is not the human relations business man he presented himself to be.
Her world is out of control. Her life is in danger. Not only does she have to protect herself but also her niece Mia. Mia has become collateral in China’s world.
The only thing China can do is fight back using her brilliance. What’s next….CLIFFHANGER!
BRILLIANT START IN THE CORRUPTED HEARTS SERIES! Tiffany Snow has me hooked!
About Tiffany Snow
I love to stick with characters over a series of books when I read, which is the same way I write. My first series – THE KATHLEEN TURNER SERIES – includes five books, two companion novels, and features a love triangle. My new series, coming from Montlake Romance December 16, 2014, is the TANGLED IVY TRILOGY, beginning with IN HIS SHADOW.
As for me, I’ve been reading romance novels since I was way too young to read such things, have an unhealthy obsession for all things Doctor Who, prefer Pepsi to Coke and Absolut to both, think men who drink girly cocktails are wusses, have learned to never stop believing in my beloved St. Louis Cardinals, and can recite the entire scripts of When Harry Met Sally and Apollo 13. George Washington is cool, Bon Jovi still rocks the house, and Bruce Willis is the ultimate alpha-male hero. Most of all, romance never, ever gets old.
