Lilly Allen has brains, beauty, and a trust fund. She’s living in New York City and her career as a reporter is taking off. She’s hoping the love of her life, Grier, will propose soon. She has it all, or so she thinks.

Grier Garrison, Create Life executive, is running the company while his father, Dr. Michael Garrison, is in the ICU awaiting a heart transplant. Grier knows the truth about Create Life and its shady side business. He fears Lilly and her twin brother, Luke, are in danger.

While working on two unrelated stories, stolen newborns and cloning, Lilly discovers a shocking connection. Horrific things are happening, but who is behind it all?

Lilly Allen is working on a story that can make her career, but this story is about to become personal.

Lilly’s life is perfect. She has money, a great boyfriend (who she hopes will become a fiancé soon), a good job, and a loving family (even if her mother is a tad bit annoying). What more can this girl ask for? As heroines go, I found Lilly to be very realistic. She did have flaws and character quirks, some of which annoyed me, but it made her even more realistic. My one complaint about her was that she was a bit on the spoiled side.

Grier, the hero, was yummy. He was supportive, loving, and really all a woman can ask for. What I loved was that he didn’t spend every single waking moment with Lilly and that he had a fully developed life of his own. While the whole story was written from Lilly’s point of view, we got to live some of Grier’s life too.

Luke, Lilly’s brother, stole the show for me. I actually liked him more than I liked the hero, and I really wish to see him get a woman in his own book. (Please, can Luke get a book?)

Now the plot: I love genetic engineering plots, and this was no exception. I don’t want to reveal more or give spoilers away, but this plot had evil, sinister villains who had me on the edge of my seat. This plot had me completely intrigued and I hope other readers will enjoy it as much as I did.  I recommend this one for fans of fast-paced romantic suspense.


  1. Thank you for the raving review! I love Luke too! He plays a much bigger role in Tin Roof, the sequel to Carbon Copy. And yes, he meets someone special. I never thought of Luke having his own book! Great idea=)
