In this action-packed second installment of The Samantha Project series, Samantha and Erik go on a search to find a way to save themselves from the genetic time bomb ticking away in their cells. Along the way, they discover a shocking secret–one they wish they were never told!

Although Samantha’s boyfriend, Colin, is back now, her feelings for Erik are getting stronger by the minute. When yet another secret is revealed, Samantha finally learns the real reason why she can’t resist Erik. But only after she’s gone too far with him! So far that Colin may never forgive her.

GlobalLife Genetics continues to pursue Samantha and they’ll stop at nothing to get her. Sam still doesn’t understand what GlobalLife’s plan is for her but she knows it’s something big. And she knows it isn’t good.


First off, if you haven’t read book 1, The Samantha Project, READ THIS FIRST!!!  The Golden Couple picks up right where this left off and while you could potentially read the book without having read the first book, I think you would be missing a lot of information.  Plus when I looked online, it was only $0.99 or you can sign up to win the book below.

WOW is about all I can say!  I loved the premise of this series, about people created in a lab with altered DNA and the conspiracy of a global company and their plans to rule the world….isn’t that how all companies are?!  But does everyone that works for GlobalLife really believe in what they are doing?  Or perhaps are they out to help protect the sanctity of life?  Now there are times where I wanted to shake Samantha and tell her to get real, but overall I really enjoyed this book and am going to have to get the third book in this series, A Chosen Destiny.

We give it 4 1/2 paws
