The first book in the Winters Sisters Series, Chasing Victory focuses on Victory Winters, a genetics researcher. After witnessing the murder of her college friend, Victory realizes that she must flee to safety because of what she saw. Tristan is a member of a covert government organization that is watching a rival genetics company, Biotec. Biotec wants Victory on their payroll and will do anything to get her. After meeting Tristan, she isn’t sure if he can be trusted or not. But, her telepathic abilities to communicate with canines enables her to communicate telepathically with Tristan and he wins over her trust.
This was a very interesting and fast paced novel. Right from the beginning the suspense story kicks off with a BANG (pun intended)! Victory’s research is very interesting and well developed within the story. I especially enjoyed how Tristan and his brother’s abilities came into play. The pace was perfectly set while each element of the story changed throughout the pages. Just when the romance came into play, the suspenseful elements would come back around. It was really well done and kept me wanting more. I’m interested in seeing where the rest of this series goes and to learn more about Victory’s sister’s and their family business.
