Series: Silicon Valley Billionaires #2
Genres: Romantic Suspense
His Woman. His Family. His Company. When the going gets tough, the tough get Alpha.
Silicon Valley billionaire CEO Gabriel Betts has finally found the happiness he’s been searching for—in gorgeous, brilliant fellow billionaire Lauren Taylor, the so-called reigning queen of the biotech industry. But when Chinese healthcare mogul Li Na Zhao kidnaps Lauren’s sister in a high-stakes game of corporate espionage, the world they’ve worked so hard to protect comes crashing down. Li Na agrees to trade Hannah for Lauren’s Paragon Laboratories and her help—onsite and in person. In an attempt to keep Lauren safe, Gabe calls in his security-industry professional brothers to help get Hannah back. But when the rescue effort stumbles, Gabe must pick up the pieces to protect the woman he loves…before she makes the ultimate sacrifice.
Gabe by Leigh James is the continuation of the story of Gabe and Lauren (from the book titled Lauren). The story starts right into the action with the kidnapping of Lauren’s sister, Hannah, by Lauren’s rival, Li Na.
I loved the biotech espionage feel to this series. Lauren and Gabe are both brilliant and they are in careers that are high powered and technical. I love characters who are smart and using it! Biotechnology is a fascinating field that really is on the forefront of the future. I could easily imagine 2 companies like Lauren’s and Li Na’s fighting for trade secrets, talent, and more! Gabe is determined to never let anything happen to Lauren, so when Li Na wants Lauren and her company in exchange for her sister Hannah, Gabe is determined to not let Lauren do anything foolish. He enlists the help of his brothers, who find people for a living. The plot twists around how to get Hannah back without compromising Lauren, how to put an end to Li Na’s games and tactics forever, and how Gabe and Lauren will navigate their new relationship when put to the test!
If you like books that jump right into the danger, characters who are smart, alpha males who are more than just a pretty face, and strong family ties, Gabe by Leigh James is a perfect choice. Read Lauren first though, or you will be kind of lost!
