In Chemical Reaction, the sequel to Chemical Attraction, FBI Agent Joe Roberts and his fiancée, Dr. Madeline Pierce, must track down a rage-producing nano-drug before it devastates the nation.
Staying in Detroit with the FBI, Madeline works to develop an antidote from the confiscated journals. She clashes with the women from Joe’s past. In West Michigan, Joe hunts for the bio-weapon. With a history as a player, he’s worried his relationship with Madeline is at risk. Working apart, they attempt to focus on the threat.
Before Joe returns, agents are killed, Madeline is abducted, and the deadly nano-drug is put on the market. Without the journals, the mastermind needs Madeline to reproduce the drug.
While she plays a dangerous game of deceit, Joe struggles to put his fears of losing her aside to find the weapon first. Her life, their future, and the nation’s security are in jeopardy. Joe must now choose between his personal desire and his professional integrity. Can he live with the consequences?
This story had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. It was thrilling and suspenseful in a very realistic way. Thompson created a story that is believable to a point where I can imagine something like it happening. While the story is a great one, it was really the characters that did it for me.
The relationship between Joe and Madeline is one that seems to be continually tested. And to me, those are the best types. To know that someone is willing to fight for you time and again really strengthens the bonds you share. There were so many challenges they had to face, but they do it to get back to each other. Talk about love. The secondary characters were really quite enjoyable as well and added something great to the story.
I also really enjoyed the fact that this story picks up just a little after where the first left off. It added a sense of urgency, as not much time has pasted. But this also adds to the realistic tones as I can imagine FBI agents are kept quite busy. Overall, this was an awesome, fun, thrilling read and I hope to read more from Thompson!
