Book details for Body Master by C.J. Barry
Formats », ,
Body Master is a science fiction romance set on Earth after an alien ship has crash-landed on the planet. The aliens have the ability to use human DNA to reproduce human bodies for themselves and they've used that ability to blend into the human population. Some want only to build new lives for themselves...some want to take over the world.
Max Dempsey is one of the former and he works his way into the organization tasked with finding and taking down the alien shape shifters who have begun killing humans so that he can find the alien shape shifter who killed his wife. He's paired up with Seneca Thomas, who comes across as a strong woman, a little afraid of being labeled as different and outcast because of her un-confessed ability to see the aliens and differentiate them from the humans around them. There's plenty of great tension between Seneca and Max and I have to admit that this book contains plenty of my favorite types of fiction: paranormal, science fiction, police procedural, steamy romance, complex plotting, good world-building, and plenty of room for future stories set in the same universe!
If you read only one science fiction romance this year, Body Master is the perfect choice. It doesn't disappoint.

Her world under siege...
Seneca Thomas is an agent with XCEL, a secret government taskforce charged with capturing the dangerous shapeshifters that have infiltrated New York City, passing for humans. Her Native American heritage gives her a special gift—the ability to see the shapeshifters for what they are. Unfortunately, this doesn't make killing them any easier...
...his life on the line.
Max Dempsey was on a refugee transport that crashed to Earth, setting thousands of shapeshifters free to do what they do best—replicate the local population in order to survive. Among them is the shifter who murdered Max's wife. Now Max's only desire is to find him and destroy him—until he gets partnered with Seneca, a sexy, fearless agent who would kill every one of his kind—including Max—if given the chance.
A dangerous liaison
As a criminal army of shifters assembles under the city determined to wreak havoc and destroy humanity, Seneca and Max will have to embrace their explosive chemistry, for only by trusting in each other and their power can they hope to stop the growing evil.
