Product Description

Product Description

Being strong is one thing. Being an unlimited source of power is quite another.

Genetically altered by the Organization, Annie Fox takes down criminals CIA-style with her luminary strength. With nothing to mend but her broken heart, she is relentlessly pursued by her boss Derek Lake. Just when Annie is about to give him a chance, her ex-husband unexpectedly comes out of hiding.

A wanted man, Nick Logan is a cold-hearted murderer who is considered enemy number one, and orders are clear: kill on contact. He is more powerful than ever and threatens the lives of those she holds most dear. His plan? Get his hands on Annie and use her Kinetic energy to destroy them all. When Annie finds herself with an opportunity to end him, she pauses, horrified by the scars covering the face she once loved. A split second that will cost her everything…

●▬▬▬▬๑۩ 4.5 STAR REVIEW ۩๑▬▬▬▬▬●

If you are a fan of supernatural super powers kind of book then Kinetic is the book for you.

Annie Fox has a very special powers she is not the only one, her friends Beth, Andrew, Jenny, Lisa are part of this organization with all their members having special powers too. Org like they like to call it is founded by Derrek's father. She's finally ready to give love another chance, after being left with a shatter heart by Nick Logan, her now ex-husband, Derrek will finally have his chance with her. However by him trying to keep her safe might do more harm than good. Annie will have to face her now evil ex-husband and her friends and co-workers will be by her side.

This story has some twist and turns, also good and evil will have a huge part of this story. As always we know evil is lurking in the shadows and when he/she reveals their true identity this will cause your heart to skip a beat and your jaw to hit the floor. You do not want to miss this one crazy good story. This book is so good you will want to start book two asap

When one of your own chooses to abandon his principles for evil, what step should you take??

Genetically altered by the Organization, Annie Fox takes down criminals CIA-style with her luminary strength. With nothing to mend but her broken heart, she is relentlessly pursued by her boss Derek Lake. Just when Annie is about to give him a chance, her ex-husband unexpectedly comes out of hiding.

When Annie finds herself with an opportunity to end him, she pauses, horrified by the scars covering the face she once loved. A split second that will cost her everything…. (Amazon Blurb)

Finding out that the man you once loved has decided that to protect his country, its citizens and his team mates is no longer important and embracing the dark side of his nature, was one of Annie's worst moments, and yet she never backed down, did her best to subdue him. Whether she manages to stop him or not (you must read to know if she does, otherwise I'd be ruining the story for everyone), the suspense, action, and the drama is non stop - for a first novel from this author, S.K. Anthony, I see great promise in the Luminaries series, especially if the key aspects (humanity, suspense, action) remains a constant throughout the entire series

HASH(0x9e480fcc) out of 5 stars Kinetic will quicken your pulse Sept. 28 2013
By Maria Paisley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Abridged from my blog, Reading the Alphabet.

4.5 of 5 stars

Annie is a Luminary, a genetically altered human, one of a number who work for the Organization. Annie developed the gift of extreme strength. During one of her Org missions, She is sent to guard a vault in Worldsafe where important secrets of important people are kept. When Worldsafe is violently broken into while Annie is there, she springs into action to catch the thieves. She's not expecting one of them to be her ex-husband, Nick. In slight shock, Annie lets him get away, despite a kill on contact order. Despite being romantically pursued by the President of the Org, she had put up a wall to guard her heart and in one brief moment, her ex sent cracks running through its foundation. Is her life about to come crashing down? It certainly won't be as simple as that, and if it happens, it won't be in ways that you might expect.

First off, what an opening! By the end of Page 1, I wanted to know more Annie and what makes her tick. By the time Chapter 1 closes, readers know that she wasn't always the way she is now, and this cemented my intrigue in Annie and in Kinetic. Annie is a complex character. The secondary characters are all complex characters too, and all in different ways. Even the tertiary characters had depth and purpose. S.K. Anthony did a great job in their development. At numerous times you'll ask yourself, is everyone who you believe them to be at first?

If you are looking for a fast-paced, action-packed book with some timely romance thrown in, then this book is for you. I truly did not want to put Kinetic down once I started it. There are twists and turns that kept me up beyond bed time and thinking about them the next day.

Overall, this is a wonderful debut for S.K. Anthony. I can't wait to see more in this series!

HASH(0x9e48303c) out of 5 stars An interesting read full of mystery and deceit! Oct. 8 2013
By Book- Marks The Spot - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Annie is a Luminary, which means she has power. Hers happens to be strength and later she will find out she has another power. I'm a big fan if X- Men and all things related with supernatural powers. So of course I loved this book. All their powers were different and I loved learning about each one. So we have Annie and her friends who work for the Organization or the Org as they like to call it and they are trying to stop a serial killer. The only is that it's Annie's Ex- husband Nick Logan. Talk about a bummer. He leaves her to become evil. Not something a girl wants to think about. Anyways they are trying to find him before he finds them, or just Annie because of her unique power. But some things aren't what they seem. Something is fishy. I could tell about not quite halfway through that there was something going on behind the scenes. And then they find out the truth and it was....sick. Gosh how do I say this without spoiling the book? Let's just say that friends will become enemies and enemies will become friends. How twisted Is that I love it! :D Oh and the moments between Annie and a certain someone *swoon* someone call the fire department. This was a fantastic start to what I know will be a great series; I can't wait to see who the second book will be about, maybe Kevin. I really liked him. :D OH MY GOSH I almost forgot about the ending. Ugh that ending I thought it was going to go one way and I am here crying like a baby and then BAM nope not what I thought. I was like S.K. Anthony- 1 Tiffany- 0 LOL But I did my little happy dance and all was right with the world. :D

Annie was nice and easygoing. You couldn't help but to like her. She is super strong but a total softy. Gosh I loved her. She has such a dilemma to deal with in the book. She is broken because Nick left her. She didn't feel love until him and he ripped her heart out. I'll talk about Nick in a minute.

Derek is a little pushy and possessive but we find out why later in the book. I think he was a swell guy but I knew he wasn't what Annie needed. Annie likes to break the rules and he likes to follow them, Yeah not a good combo. Other than that he is a pretty stand up guy.

Nick left Annie and didn't leave a note as to why. Oh and there's something about him killing people. Does it make me weird that I still love him? He is goofy and sinfully sexy. I don't care about the scars and his eye patch. It's easy to see why Annie fell for him. Man the things we learn about him in this book. The suspense killed me!!!!

Beth: I have to mention Beth because she was the bestest friend ever. She has been there for Annie since they were 15 and stood up for her. I have much respect for her. Maybe we can get a story about her and how she met Andrew. :D Just a suggestion.

Kevin: He doesn't come in until later in the book, but I have a little crush on him. I want to read a book about him, but then he would be taken. L He is goofy just like Nick and has a perverted mind. LOL but he is 17....and a guy. I just loved him. :D

Overall: An interesting read full of mystery and deceit!

HASH(0x9e483474) out of 5 stars Zakirrah's Book Blog Review Sept. 21 2013
By Zakirrah's Book Blog - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Brilliant, action-packed, fast paced with unexpected twists!

Annie Fox is a strong, independent badass character which was a change to the usual weak heroines. She works for the Organization to take down the bad guys, the Organization injected her and genetically altered her to make her stronger and have powers to take down criminals.Everyone genetically altered gains a different power and become one of the luminaries.

Being strong is one thing. Being an unlimited source of power is quite another.

But what happens when Annie has to fight against her ex-husband who is supposed to be a killer. Will she be able to do the job she was born for? He is more powerful than anyone out there and he wants Annie..What happens when Annie lets him slip? When attacked Annie struggles with the thought of killing him and finds that she still has feelings for him, she cant kill him and things become much more complicated..

Will Nick take Annie's power and destroy everyone?

Or is there a whole lot more to this story?

The story is told from Annie's POV and is written in first person which is perfect for me!

At the start I felt like eh why is Annie not letting go of Nick and just going for Derek I mean he left so she should start to move on and everyone thinks he is good for her.He was nice to her and seemed like he was in love with her and had been for a long time, I didn't like how she kept pushing him away even though at times he was really pushy and weird! I was like go for Derek C'mon your ex-husband left you and is a so called "Killer" and "Evil Psychopath"

But then you meet Nick and its like Omg Hellooo hot Nick..Derek who??
I don't even care if you are burnt pft Nick is like a million times better than Derek.You find out everything is not how its said to be and there is a lot we don't know, it leaves you feeling paranoid thinking who is really evil? Can we trust him? Omg what if they are all in on this evil plan? :O

"Because you will forgive me, you have to. You and I aren't a matter of ifs and whys. You and I are inevitable."

I loved the Annie and Nick scenes! They were hot, funny and just brilliant..Even when they where fighting oh Nick is a funny man!
I loved both Nick and Annie..okay I loved Nick more only because Annie I felt shouldn't have kept pushing everyone away but I understood with all that happened in her past its only normal to act like that.
Now Nick ahh Nick I loved all his parts and wanted soo much more I would have love to read some parts in his POV and be in his head.

"For goodness sake! Just tell us what happened to you to turn you so evil," she shouted.

"I'm not evil. I'm just misunderstood," he said as his lip curled up.

I really liked the other characters too Annie had great supportive friends who always stood by her I even liked Lisa..Yes that bitch they all hate..yup her!
Derek's dad gave me the bloody creeps *shudders* What the hell is wrong with him?

Bring on the next book cant wait to find out what will happen..in Kevin's story..

HASH(0x9e483834) out of 5 stars A book with heart, action and lovable characters. Sept. 20 2013
By Brandon Ax - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book had me from the moment Annie clicked her heels across the road for some fun and escape from her dull blind date.

The multitude of characters in Kinetic speak of a much broader world and I can't wait to read more about them. The story itself really pulls you in. With Annie's past looming over her you instantly understand her pain and are right there with her for the whole ride. Kevin is one of my favorite characters in the story and I can't wait to read more about him.

The action is gripping, the romance is breathtaking and the twist will have you flipping pages quickly. This is an amazing debut for an incredible new author. I feel we will be seeing much more of miss Anthony in the future.

How do you do your job when it means killing the man you once loved and tore your heart out? how do live knowing he has destroyed so much? When he returns you find yourself wanting revenge more than death and wondering if what your doing is right or wrong. Then comes the big problem, what if he is innocent and everything you believe in is wrong? great read truly kept me intrigued and wondering what would happen next!
