Review ~ False Match (Coded for Love, #2) by Lynne Silver

False Match (Coded for Love, #2)
eARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: April 5th 2016

Publisher: Beyond the Page

The Program: an organization of elite soldiers with superior strength, agility, and intellect. These men put their lives on the line to execute the government’s most dangerous missions. 

Kidnapped with her son and forced into helping a rogue scientist with his experiments, Dr. Samara Jones saw no escape. Until the day she was rescued by a group of elite soldiers from the Program. Now under the protection of the Program, Samara is working to prove her innocence—and struggling to control the burning need she feels for Chase Stanton, one of her rescuers.

As laid-back as he is deadly, Chase is a well-honed solider who always responds to the call of duty, whether it’s a life-or-death mission or a scorching night of passion. When he’s assigned to protect Samara, he’s immediately drawn to the smart, headstrong woman, and confides a dark fear to her—despite feeling torn by his suspicions that she could be a double agent. Duty demands he resist temptation, but desire has its own demands . . .

My Opinion

I enjoyed this instalment much more than the first. I didn't quite know what to expect from Chase and Samara's story, but it came as a pleasant surprise.

In False Match there is a lot less genetically modified soldier details. There's also not the pressure of finding the perfect match and breeding. Because of this, I found connecting with the characters and believing in the romance a lot easier. It felt natural and not chemical since the emotions were real. It made me root for them as a couple and of course with the way Chase cares for Samara and Luca you can't help but love him.

While the romance and characters were better in this book, the plot didn't grip me as much. Things happened, but they also didn't. There wasn't a complete resolve for me, and I'm guessing that's down to it flowing over into the next book, but I'm not sure how much further the plot can go without it being repetitive. Also, for an elite unit of soldiers, they seem to make a lot of stupid mistakes. The organisation seems amateurish rather than a crack team.

Overall though it was a good read. I enjoyed the romance element more in this book and I may check out the next. It surprised me that it's going to be Ryan's story though so I'm on the fence right now.
