Living abroad in England, college
student Alexis is kidnapped off the streets to be used by a
quartet of men with super human mutant powers and nobody
notices she is missing.
Four men with unusual gifts including
instant transportation, hypnotism, alchemy and being a
warlock have banded together. Nikolas Alexander and Liam
Gallagher head a successful mental institute, while Gabriel
Gallagher and Cole Forrester are businessmen of a sometimes
questionable business. There are mutant chapters the world
over and these men belong to one such chapter.
Nikolas talks the others into
performing experiments on Alexis to turn a normal
20-year-old woman into a mutant. Alexis becomes Jacquelyn
Hennessey, a mutant with a deadly venomous talent. She
falls in love with one of the men, hates another and
despises the others. A life as a hired killer is not what
Jackie planned and once the man she loves deserts her where
can she turn to leave this deadly life behind?
Toxic Temptations gives readers a unique and
fascinating plotline with intense characters that twist and
turn as the chapters roll on. Good ideas and potential
however can still leave holes. Alexis/Jackie doesn’t put up
much of a fight against becoming a mutant even with a
‘hypnotized’ explanation. I also didn’t find the love story
very strong in places, there just wasn’t much depth to their
feelings at times. Toxic Temptations is a
great idea for a story but unfortunately falls short.
