Rated 3 out of 5 by from 3.5 stars--fast paced, suspense filled : 3.5 stars--GABE is the second installment in Leigh James’ contemporary, adult SILICON VALLEY BILLIONAIRE erotic, romantic suspense series. GABE is the continuing story of Silicon Valley billionaire CEO Gabriel Bretts, and biotech CEO of Paragon Laboratories Lauren Taylor. GABE can be read as a stand alone but I recommend reading the series in order for background, history and cohesion as the events of GABE pick up immediately upon, and are directly affected by the events of book one LAUREN. Told from dual first person points of view (Gabe and Lauren) GABE follows the search and rescue of Hannah Taylor. Lauren’s biggest competitor in the biotech industry wants what Lauren has-Paragon Laboratories-and to ensure her take over Li Na Zhao resorts to kidnapping Lauren’s younger sister forcing our heroine to hand over Paragon in exchange for her sister’s life. What ensues is the back and forth ‘negotiations’ and set up as Gabe Bretts and his brothers’ security firm search for the people responsible for the kidnapping of Hannah Taylor. GABE focuses on corporate espionage, betrayal and revenge; power and control; romance and love. Throughout the story Gabe and Lauren’s relationship continues to flourish in spite of our heroine’s need to place herself in danger to save the life of her younger sister. For a billionaire genius, Lauren is very immature when it comes to the reality of what is going on. I struggled with her emotional behavior, outbursts and personality quarks on too many occasions. The relationship between Gabe and Lauren has already been established (LAUREN #1) but Gabe is hoping to make it permanent in the future-if only the woman he loved would stop trying to make a martyr of herself. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic and intense. There is some light BDSM play including spanking. We are introduced to Gabe’s brothers Levi and Asher; Hannah’s bodyguard and boyfriend Wesley Eden; as well as Lauren’s bodyguard Timmy, and her PA Bethany O’Donnell. There are a number of additional secondary and supporting characters including several members of the Board of Directors of Paragon Laboratories, as well as medical and police force personnel. Wesley and Hannah’s story line is next in HANNAH. GABE is a fast paced, exciting and suspense filled story line but I had to question some of the logistics and events that transpired. I am not sure the events would have played out quite so cleanly as presented, or without more government, international and legal interference and ramifications. With Li Na Zhao still in the wind, the Chinese corporate Nationalist will continue to cause trouble for the billionaires of Silicon Valley. The premise is entertaining; the characters are colorful and dynamic; the romance is seductive and provocative.
