What if a microchip could identify your perfect match?
What if it could be used against you and the ones you love?

Eight years ago, Mercer Corporation’s M-Bands became mandatory. An evolution of the smartphone, the bracelets promised an easier life. Instead, they have come to control it.

Two years ago, Maggie Stevens watched helplessly as one of the people she loves most was taken from her, shattering her world as she knew it.

Now, Maggie is ready. And Quentin Mercer – heir to the M-Corp empire – has become key to Maggie’s plan. But as the pieces of her dangerous design fall into place, could Quentin’s involvement destroy everything she’s fought for?

In a world full of broken promises, the ones Maggie must keep could be the most heartbreaking.

why i chose it

1) The main character, Maggie, is totally badass and doesn't take crap from anyone. I loved this about her so much. 

2) She has a best friend who's a guy and they're just there for each other. No romance here.

3) The ship is kind of hate to love, and it's awesome seeing Quentin grow so much over the course of the book. 

4) The plotline and the way it's written are very engaging, and there was not one moment in this entire book where I was bored or uninterested. 

5) It's an Australian dystopian! Which is rare, but it's also incredible so go now and read it if you haven't already!
