The heart-stopping first chapter in bestselling author Jessica Shirvington's Disruption series.

What if a microchip could identify your perfect match?

What if it could be used against you and the ones you love?

Eight years ago, Mercer Corporation's M-Bands became mandatory. An evolution of the smartphone, the bracelets promised an easier life. Instead, they have come to control it.

Two years ago, Maggie Stevens watched helplessly as one of the people she loved most was taken from her, shattering her world as she knew it. Now, Maggie is ready. And Quentin Mercer - heir to the M-Corp empire - has become key to Maggie's plan.

But as the pieces of her dangerous design fall into place, could Quentin's involvement destroy everything she's fought for?

In a world full of broken promises, the ones Maggie must keep could be the most heartbreaking.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

I had read a Jessica Shirvington book, Between the Lines/One Past Midnight, about 2 years ago on the suggestion of a friend that knows I love a good parallel life book. I really enjoyed it so I was excited when I saw her name as the author Disruption. I was even more excited when I saw what the book was about and then even more excited when a friend told me that I would love it because I loved Suzanne Young’s The Program series. Consider me hooked. And hooked on the book I was. Disruption was like The Program meets Free to Fall (Lauren Miller) meets Unleashed (Sophie Jordan) meets the love machine episode of Saved by the Bell and it was fantastic.

It’s hard to pinpoint exactly what I loved about this book. It could be the characters (Maggie and Quentin and Gus!!!), it could be the romance, it could be the plot, or it could be all 3 things.   The truth is, this book is addictive and I think it is because of all those things. I was on the end of my seat wondering what would happen to Maggie and Quentin. And even when I had an inkling on what I thought would happen I still wanted to read more just to know if I was right. It all unfolded so perfectly that I didn’t even care that some was a little predictable.

I guess in the long run I loved that this book reminded me of some many of my other favorite stories. It had so many moving pieces and the characters were so interesting I was sucked in from the start. In the end I was left dying for book 2 because I need to know what is going to happen after everything that went down in the final 30 or so pages. Disruption was a total surprise for me and I loved every minute of it.
