Synopsis from Edelweiss:
The thrilling finale to bestselling author Jessica Shirvington’s Disruption series.
How do you live with yourself when you’ve deceived the one you love?
How do you move on when the person you’ve been fighting to save betrays you?
Two years ago, Maggie Stevens began the hunt.
Four weeks ago, Maggie’s world fell apart, when she finally found what she’d been looking for And when Quentin, who had blindly trusted her, unravelled her web of lies.
Now, Maggie lives in the dark. But she’s not about to stay there. Not when she still has to bring M-Corp down. Not when there is still a chance she could win him back.
In the exhilarating conclusion to Disruption, Maggie must do whatever it takes to show the world the truth. And the price for her quest?
But for who?

My Experience: I started reading Corruption on 2/10/17 and finished it on 2/15/17. This book is filled with so much actions and pleasures! I love this duology! This book continues where Disruption left off. The main character and the only point of view in this duology is Maggie (Mags/Margaret) Stevens and she was locked up, hungry, and left in the dark. Even it feels like the end is near, she still try her best to survive. In book 1, Maggie’s main focus was to rescue her dad. In book 2, Maggie finds out what’s been hidden from her and she will have to make a tough decision to set everything right again. Maggie is an awesome badass heroine. What I love most about her character is that she always challenge people and questions everything instead of accepting the answers or instructions given to her. It makes reading this book exciting because Maggie always evaluate the possibilities, her strategies, and her surroundings before taking action. I like that a lot and I enjoy following her thoughts.
“I couldn’t be the person everyone wanted. I could only be me. And right now, the only version of me I could cope with was the one who got things done.” p210
I love Gus in this book! He’s full of comebacks. I like his friendship with Maggie. I like that he has mad skills with the computer. I like the witty banter between him and everybody, but especially with Maggie. The first book introduces the technology called Phera-Tech which helps rate love compatibility where the best side is true match while the opposite side inform them that they are a neg. A neg is a person likely to cause trouble and is therefore send to a rehabilitation center to improve themselves. M-Corp is a corporation owned by Garrett Mercer who controls this technology. His youngest son is Quentin (Quin) Mercer and he’s hot. He’s described as good looking and I liked him more in book 1, but book 2, Gus definitely dominate my attention.
“Fighting back doesn’t make us villains. We tried. And yeah, we failed. But that can’t be an excuse to give up. We just have to find another way.” p278
The technology play a big role in this book and how Maggie’s family and Quin’s family is involved in all of it. There’s a group of people who called themselves Pre-Evo or Preference Evolution that is against the future of this technology. Phera-Tech does more than finding your true love, it also monitors a person’s heart rate, fatality, even provide contraception, and many more. Whereas a technology provide benefits for the people, there are those that have different intentions. Besides the tech talks and the intense scenes, there are some family love, friendship love, and other love in between. This duology is awesome and I highly recommend the read!
Pro: page turner, heart-pumping, mind-racing, adrenaline rush, awesome characters and plot, humor, twists & turns, strategy, suspense, badass
I rate it 5 stars!
