Book Description:
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 love when a book can not only pleasantly surprise me with how much I enjoyed it, but leave me hooked and begging for the second one.

This is my first Shirvington book and I can say with absolute certainty it will not be my last. Not only do I want book two now, but I can't wait to see what else she has written and to get my hands on them because I truly had that much fun with with Disruption.

I have a thing for authors who can think outside the box and come up with something totally new and completely entertaining. It doesn't always happen as much as one would like or even expect so when it goes, I take notice. 

Disruption is something different from the norm. Not only imaginative and realistic feeling but believable in its complicated simplicity. 

With great characters you will fall in love with, a slow burning romance, and secrets, truths, and twists around every corner, this book will hook you after the first couple chapters and leave you eagerly turning the pages until the very last one.

  14. Ali you have me curious and the concept seems realistic..scary but realistic. I could see us lining up like mindless cows to get these devices.

    1. Yes! That is what I loved so much about it, how easy it was to believe that we would all fall for something like this.

  15. I love when an author can give you something completely new. It seems that only authors can have an original thought (Hollywood sure doesn't, since they only seem to do sequels, remakes and movies based on books).

    1. Ha ha, you're right, at least recently (past 10 years or so) there has been very little "new" stuff in movies.
