Lauren Lauren by Leigh James
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4.5 Stars

From billionaire CEOs, scientists, and mercenaries, this story really does have it all, and more.

Lauren is full of corporate espionage and is set inside of a billion dollar biomedical company. Lauren is a 25 yr old brilliant scientist with a new and innovative biomedical prototype which could revolutionise the diagnosis and treatment of patients but despite her brilliance, and her company’s security measures, her computer system is hacked and suddenly all that Lauren has been working for, for years, is under threat.

There is one man that Lauren can turn to for support, and protection, and that is Gabriel Betts but Gabe has more than his business interests in mind when it comes to Lauren. With Gabe working closely at her side, Lauren lowers her defences and starts to fall for his charms. Gabe is everything that Lauren needs and whilst together they face danger on a daily basis, they continue to grow close.

Whilst Lauren and Gabe’s developing relationship was endearing, especially how Gabe treats Lauren’s inability to stop working long enough to fall in love, the book’s strength lies within the mystery and intrigue of Lauren’s skills as a scientist and what she must face in order to protect her business interests from outside parties. Despite protecting her prototype with everything she can, her business is suddenly the focus of two other companies: one that can be trusted, Gabe’s, and the other which is intent on taking over her business and acquiring control over the rights to her unique product.

Despite the science theme of this book, the story can easily be enjoyed by anyone looking for a good romantic suspense book. The world of R&D is opened up to readers and with it the understanding of the dangers involved when developing new products. There is also a side story developing between Lauren’s sister, Hannah and her bodyguard Wes that I can’t wait to read more about, especially as Hannah seems to be a key player in the next instalment.
