    Suspenseful with ending that will blow your mind

    An unknown subject is pulling the strings in a game of greed and revenge with the lives of 15 teenagers. The players he has pulling off his twisted game are lacking moral compasses and the body count climbs pretty high. Core Agent Chase Sawyer is sent to assist the FBI Cleveland Division on the case as one of the kidnapped kids is a US Senator's grandson. Chase used to work for the FBI as a crisis negotiator. During that time he dated and was in love with FBI agent Summer Raines. His guilt over how he lost a partner and that it also resulted in the killing of a teenager made him so overwhelmed with nightmares and self doubt about himself he walked away from both the FBI and Summer. Coming back to Cleveland opens up a lot of old wounds and demon and along with that having to face Summer again as she is one of the leads on the kidnapping case. I liked how the roles were sorta flipped in this book. Summer is a strong confident FBI agent and woman. She knew Chase had commitment issues while they were together – even before the tragedy that changed him even more – but afterwards she knew he didn't think he was good enough for her and let him go when he ran. She still loves him but doesn't let his rejection poison her mind. She went on to get a promotion to running her own team – even with getting the surprise of her life – an unplanned pregnancy from a one night visit from Chase 5 months ago. I love a woman who can say I love you but I don't need you. Someone needed to make Chase get his head out of his ass and Summer's shocking news and her laying we don't need you gauntlet down finally got through to him.. Now the kidnapping of the 15 boys.. Two acts to this – the before they are rescued and the after.. Author throws some red herrings in and they are pretty good... The first act was suspenseful but the ending of the second act will blow your mind.. Not going to say much on this but Ian Ian Ian – you are a meddler.. Always enjoy a CORE book and look forward to many more..

    5 Stars!

    Another 5 star read from Ms. Mason! The bulk of this story takes place in an abandoned Amusement Park, which only increases the creep factor. Thankfully, there were no clowns! Chock full of the twists and turns we’ve come to expect from the C.O.R.E. series, this one expertly delivers. I love Summer and Chase. Their chemistry leaps right of the pages. And the bad guys that you think you know are nothing compared to the mastermind behind this complicated crime. Truly gave me the willeys. This author is an Auto Buy for me, she’s just that good. I highly recommend not only this book, but Ms. Mason’s entire catalog.

    Another must read by Kristine Mason

    Only Kristine Mason can have me on the edge of my seat, desperate to turn the page to find out what happens but then also has me not wanting to turn the page for fear of what will happen next! I am true whimp at heart, mostly read just romance but from the first book I read with Celeste and John I was hooked! Kristine is the only author I will read in this genre, she keeps you guessing right up until the end. You cannot help but feel for all those involved and the twisted, evil things that our hero/heroines have to go against. But good always beats evil, they just get very beat up in the process.I am so very privileged to be able to read this book early as an ARC reader, devoured in an afternoon and eager for the next.
