Genre: Thriller with romance
FBI Agent Joe Roberts wants that instant chemistry like his sisters, Eva and Taylor, have with their husbands. After years of searching, he’s ready to give up on that romantic notion. Then, he meets Madeline. The problem is she’s his contact on this dangerous case.
Dr. Madeline Pierce works in nanotechnology research. When she discovers a criminal network within her medical facility, she’s partnered with Joe. Throughout the investigation into the production and distribution of illegal drugs, Joe and Madeline struggle to stay professional despite their intense attraction to each other. She wants to trust his sweet words but wonders if she’s just a fling.
Police Chief Matt Connor adores his wife, Eva, and works hard to keep his family and rural town safe. When farm animals become violent and meth labs become abundant, his calm demeanor is tested. Eva Connor, a petite spitfire, has an opinion on everything and you know it whether you want to or not. However, her confidence is shaken when she’s used as leverage against Matt’s inquiries. With this case now personal for Matt and Joe, they will do whatever’s necessary to protect the women they love. As the ensemble hunts for this new bio-weapon, the dangers intensify putting their lives at greater risk.
These intertwining relationships must transform into stronger bonds if they want to win against this horrific threat. Love should trump evil, but will their love for each other survive these tests without severe repercussions?
Chemical Attraction has a healthy balance of lust, romance, action, and suspense. I enjoyed the depth of the characters and how the author tied them all together, both in background and plot. I always appreciate when authors spotlight female characters who are smart, strong, and hold their own in the book. I think Thompson did just that with a few of her characters, such as Eve Connor and Dr. Madeline Pierce.
I also appreciate how the plot isn't solely focused on one mystery, but a blend of multiple things, like the possible meth house, the rabid animals turning on humans, and some of the activity happening in Madeline's research facility. Definitely a fulfilling read!
