Payton Winters is thrust into the position of CEO of The Winters Corporation after the sudden death of her parents. Confronted with the knowledge she was born with special abilities, she finds herself in the dilemma of being a grounding force to people who possess psychic powers. She has unwillingly become the mental anchor to the one man she wants no part of, Collin McBain. While on a routine mission, Collin is drugged, tortured, and injected with wolf DNA. Now believed dead, he is secretly assigned to the Winters Campus.
Faced with the reality that her life is based on half-truths, Payton is on a pursuit to uncover her mother’s scientific research. She desperately needs to understand why she and her two sisters were genetically altered before birth. Payton’s path to discovery is littered with danger as she finds herself embroiled in a world of secrets, lies, kidnapping, and murder. She struggles to understand the events of the past in order to cope with her future. Will Payton’s pursuit for the truth be her last?
Another amazing book in The Winters Sisters series! Payton and Collin are featured in this one and wow, what a pairing! Collin was injected with wolf DNA as part of a botched government experiment. He can’t fully control the wolf side, especially when he is angry. Anytime Payton gets near Collin, she has horrible headaches and passes out. Victory tries to help her sister control her powers so that doesn’t continue to happen. Collin experiences a sense of calm when he is around Payton, which is completely opposite of her feelings. Payton finds him irresistibly handsome, but tries to deny her attraction because he is the one who kidnapped her sister, Victory. Talk about a mess of sexual tension!
Then, there is the storyline with Biotech vs The Winters Corporation – to which Payton is CEO of. This is causing a ton of stress to Payton because of Biotech’s threats. I won’t give away what happens, but it is a great suspenseful part of the story.
More comes out about the Winters’ parents and how the girl all gained their powers. Secrets are revealed and the sisters all learn something about their mother that they never knew. There is so much going on that I can’t wait for Willow’s story to see where this series goes!
