The passionate, impulsive Briana Howard and the sly, snarky Jonas Whitmeyer, make a perfect mess of a couple. Both are stubborn, smart and sexy. They’re also human clones with supernatural powers.

Jonas had resigned himself to a solitary life on the remote island of Palmyra, home of Sandra Whitmeyer’s clandestine clone-growing lab. With young clones now inexplicably dying, Jonas is torn between feeling responsible for cleaning up his mother’s mistakes—alone—and his desire to be with Bree.

A heated tussle on Palmyra leaves Jonas and Briana further apart than ever. Bree storms off to Portland, Oregon, but not before encountering clones of a loved one lost long ago.

Jonas tracks down Briana in Portland, where they race to discover the truth about ties between the Howards and the Whitmeyers against a host of obstacles and enemies. Will Jonas and Bree find a way to be together amid an ever-shifting maze of deceit, misdirection and danger unearthed by the darkest of family secrets?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fifth book in Mindspeak series! Deceived by Heather Sunseri is the fifth book in the Mindspeak series. Brianna Howard has just graduated from high school and she is not sure what she wants to do with her future. Bree has decided to visit Jonas Whitmeyer on Palmyra (an island). But Jonas knows that Brianna needs to decide what she wants to do with her life and pushes her away. Jonas does not want Bree staying on Palmyra for him (not that they talk to each other about the situation). Jonas feels he needs to stay on the island to clean up the mess his mother, Sandra, made and he needs to figure out why clones are dying. Then Bree checks on two sick clones and sees something that sends her running back to Portland. Jonas and friends go after Bree (thanks to Raven’s ability to find clones) to see if they can help her (she does not want help). Something is going on at Howard BioTech that involves clones (tracker devices). Bree tries to cozy up to Vance Carrington (VP of Operations), but Vance ends up dead. Bree is the prime suspect and the police are out to arrest her. Bree must now team up with Jonas to get answers (especially since they have the police and IIA agents trying to find them). What is going on at Howard BioTech? Is Bree’s father involved? Can Jonas and Bree find out what is going on? Who is trying to frame Bree for murder? I found it difficult to summarize Deceived. There is quite a bit going on in this novel (I just gave you a small summary). Deceived can be read as a stand-alone book if you have not enjoyed the previous novels in the series (I have read three of the five books). The author does a good job of summarizing prior events. Though reading the novels would be helpful (and they are pleasurable to read). There are two things that I did not like about the book. One is that too much of the story (the first half of the book) was devoted to the romance (or possible romance) between Jonas and Brianna. They each went on about their attraction, their looks, etc. The other was the alternating chapters. One chapter told from Brianna’s point-of-view and the next from Jonas’. This went all through the whole book. I found it distracting. I wish the story had been written in the third person (makes for an easier to read novel). I give Deceived 4 out of 5 stars (I liked it). Technically, Deceived is a young (or new) adult novel, but I think that older readers will enjoy the story (like myself). I received a complimentary copy of Deceived in exchange for an honest evaluation of the book. I will always provide an honest and forthright review.
