The passionate, impulsive Briana Howard and the sly, snarky Jonas Whitmeyer, make a perfect mess of a couple. Both are stubborn, smart and sexy. They’re also human clones with supernatural powers.
Jonas had resigned himself to a solitary life on the remote island of Palmyra, home of Sandra Whitmeyer’s clandestine clone-growing lab. With young clones now inexplicably dying, Jonas is torn between feeling responsible for cleaning up his mother’s mistakes—alone—and his desire to be with Bree.
A heated tussle on Palmyra leaves Jonas and Briana further apart than ever. Bree storms off to Portland, Oregon, but not before encountering clones of a loved one lost long ago.
Jonas tracks down Briana in Portland, where they race to discover the truth about ties between the Howards and the Whitmeyers against a host of obstacles and enemies. Will Jonas and Bree find a way to be together amid an ever-shifting maze of deceit, misdirection and danger unearthed by the darkest of family secrets?

In complete honesty, I adore this series. From the first novel I was 100% hooked. I simply can not put them down! I love Heather Sunseri's writing style, the lively characters weaved into her stories and the intricate plot lines which make them all the more interesting.
Reading this author's books is never a drag. They are to the point yet in enough detail to keep you on the edge of your seat.
Normally when a series continues after three books, those that follow seem to be a bit repetitive and sometimes even pointless. Now this is not the case for all series however this has been a frequent occurrence in my reading life.
My favourite part of this collection is that it defies this commonality. The first three books of the series are based on a character, Lexi's, journey. The fourth and fifth mark a change in direction of the story as a whole while still integrating the other characters. This way they are not disconnected.
To conclude, this book is a definite must-read, I recommend it wholeheartedly. Get comfortable, grab some snacks and prepare for a weekend full of adventure. I promise you will not be disappointed!

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
I wasn't quite sure what I was getting myself into when I started this book. I had only read the first book and an excerpt of the second, so it's a bit of a understatement to say that the main characters of Deceived had an uphill battle to get me invested in their story - they really weren't my favorite people going into this. I am so glad they they got a book of their own. I was able to see Jonas and Bree as complex people with their own challenges to overcome and dreams they were trying to fulfill. And the relationship between them was at once frustrating and heartwarming. I guess it goes to prove what I heard: even if we could read each others minds, we'd still have misunderstandings.
I enjoy books with some mystery in them, and I quite like the mysteries I can solve, but I really adore the stories that keep me guessing until just before the Big Reveal. (I won't go into my opinion about the stories that make it too easy for my to solve the mystery, because that just doesn't apply here.) I was desperately flipping pages to learn more the whole way through the book. Even when I finally got to the end, I was begging the universe "please let there be another chapter", until there wasn't. Sigh. I can't wait to see what happens next.
