Defect is a survivalist love story.
Locked in the mental ward on her sixteenth birthday, Eve Sterling doesn’t think things can get any worse.
After failing the mindscan procedure that predicts future crime, she’s deemed a Defect and subjected to endless psychological and physical testing as the government tries to determine what’s different about her.
The one bright spot is military guard, Will. He’s gentle with her when no one’s watching and suppresses a smile whenever she defies their challenges. Will’s lessons begin to dance dangerously close to knowledge she shouldn’t possess, like what’s beyond the fenced compound. Though it’s forbidden and Will would be killed on the spot if they’re discovered, they steal away moments together. With her very life on the line, Eve has to decide if she can trust the guard she’s falling for.

It has a pretty good story line. But I can't help but feel it would have been better spread out over a couple of books. It seems rushed and there isn't much detail. I felt myself being drawn in to the book at the beginning, wanting to read more and more. But I feel pretty unsatisfied now that I've finished. At the end, it completely skips over what should have been the climax of the book. I don't really have that overflow of emotions you usually have after finishing a good book or series. I really, really wish it had been longer and more detailed!
Pretty good build up, but the last 5-10 chapters just fell completely flat for me. Not enough action, and a lot of bipolar feelings (I don't think he loves me anymore, two sentences later I think he loves me more than ever..). Also, Why would the author skip the fighting scene at the end?? It's a huge build up to that point and then she just skips over it all together to two years later. Uuuugh.
