I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by JT Lawrence. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
A fast paced book with excellent characters. The story is told in first person point of view through an extremely sexy woman. Sexy, not just for her steamy sex scenes, but because she is smart and loyal and looking for justice and who will do anything for her story. The story of KeKe is set in the future with realistic characters and technology. Set in South Africa, she reports on a really complicated mess of a future filled with a very low birth rate, murders, religious fanatics. Because of the low birth rate, the have surrogate mothers, who are colquisteered away for them and the babies they are carrying. When KeKe is given a hot tip that these surrogates are the target of a terrorist group, she risks everything to get her scoop. Her pursuit of the truth "that her readers have a right to know" could ruin everything and even get people, including herself, killed. This strong, intelligent woman who wears leather pants and drives a motorcycle just got the break of a lifetime or a death sentence. The author includes a complex assortment of supporting characters who are not all who the seem to be, which maybe KeKe's undoing. Between the action, mystery and steamy love scenes this is the start of a wonderful series. The book held my interest and I just needed to know more of KeKe's story and this South African world. The author use of foreshadowing and breadcrumbs of hints lead me through the fast paced story that I can't wait to hear more. I enjoyed the author's storytelling and I have purchased the next books in this series because I have become a fan. The narrator did an excellent job reading this exciting tale. She is articulate and really captured the feel of this story. I look forward to listening to her become these characters. I like that I could listen to this without ever feeling I didn't know who was who or what was going on. This is a narrator I will look forward to hearing more from.
