LAST RIGHTS by Ava Bradley was a romantic suspense set in the future that starts from the very first page at jet speed and does not let up.
P.I. Fallon Monroe is sent by her sister to retrieve her nephew’s clone for life saving heart transplant surgery. Fallon soon comes to realize this clone is not just a lump of cells, but an exceptionally gifted little boy who calls himself, Jamie. The cloning company does not want people to know the true reality of the clones and a terrorist group wants to set this child up as a symbol to get the country to change the cloning laws.
Special Ops Lieutenant John White is awakened from a medically induced healing coma as Fallon and Jamie burst into his hospital room attempting escape. He does not know why, but he knows he has to protect these two above all else. John and Fallon will do anything to protect Jamie, but each is also harboring a secret that they fear could change the feelings that are beginning to blossom between them.
I did not want to put this book down. The chase and suspense were always constant. Fallon, John and Jamie are wonderfully realistic characters that I fell in love with. Cloning is debated, not just in the hypothetical, but by making you fall in love with characters it effects and makes you think about what you would do and how you feel. I never felt it was preachy because the author made you feel Fallon’s heart wrenching decisions as she made them.
This story had everything I am looking for in a romantic suspense and more. I highly recommend this story and I will definitely be looking for more from this author.

Last Rights tackles an interesting topic, and one that is very relevant: human cloning and organ harvesting. With the advances the scientific and medical communities are making today, this is something I suspect we'll have to face. Maybe even in my lifetime.
The story follows a woman who is transporting her much-loved nephew's clone in order to harvest its heart for transplanting. From the start, she's in trouble--she's pursued by anti-cloning fanatics, and then eventually by the entire country when she's accused of breaking the law. Thankfully, although she's a pretty capable person, she has help from an AWOL soldier, John White.
John's a great character. He's conflicted, flawed, strong and full of angst. He's compelled to help Fallon and the clone and he doesn't know why, but eventually he stays to help because he's falling for them. For both of them. And the feeling is mutual.
The love scenes in this book were touching, hot and very appropriate. It reminded me a bit of the first Terminator movie where, with danger only possibly moments away, the need the protagonists had for one another became something they couldn't resist. Sometimes, in romantic suspense novels, it's as though the characters forget someone is after them and leap into bed. Not so, here. But their need is great. Desperate and filled with emotion.
I can't tell you how strongly this book held my attention. The author has serious writing skills, and created real characters I cared about. I was turning pages as quickly as possible fighting the urge to peek at the end because I couldn't imagine how this could end well.
Truly, my only complaint--and it isn't much of one--is that, for a story set in the future, few things seemed truly different in the world. For a world who had perfected human cloning, the technology seemed to lag behind in everything else. There were the occasional nods to science fiction: stunners instead of guns, for instance, but even so the story felt as though it were set in today's world. In some ways, that made it even more horrible. More real. Still, as a sci-fi fan, the lack of differences between the author's world and ours was a bit frustrating.
Still, this is a book I loved. A book I've been blabbing about to anyone who will listen. It's a book that will stay with me and one I'm so glad I read. I can't recommend it enough. It was amazing.
