Review - Disruption by: Jessica Shirvington




The heart-stopping first chapter in bestselling author Jessica Shirvington's Disruption series.

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 loved 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.



Absolutely, positively loved everything about this book. Firstly, Disruption, is based around a world that evolved via technology, secondly our two main characters are determined and exciting to follow, and finally this book was so well written that I could not put it down for one second.

I love how the world of this book is semi-dystopia and yet somehow not. Your life is still controlled and tracked by an "m-band" yet at the same time you still have choices like where you live,  where you go to college, and who you ultimately end up with. It's how I could actually see the world changing into. It is crazy to think that there could be a technology developed that would sense pheromones and tell you how well you match with another person.

It is rare when I read a book where I adore every character that we meet along the way, and whether I wanted to hug them or punch them, I loved every one in this story. Each person had such a vital role, whether it was comic relief, friendship, evilness, or pure determined awesomeness. I absolutely love Maggie and Quentin. Each of our main characters grow from the beginning to end in a couple different ways. Especially Maggie, who is so determined from start to end and she isn't just mentally strong but also physically which I love seeing. I also have to give a shout out to Gus, who throughout the book was constantly making me laugh.

Overall I absolutely and throughly enjoyed this book. If I knew someone in Australia, I'd have them send me the sequel Corruption tomorrow. This book was full of action and I loved every second of it.
