Gemini Divided by Lauren Kristen Roberts is a page-turning mystery that follows Jen, a hired assassin who has spent the past several years getting rid of bad people. When her next assignment brings her into contact with her idol from a famous TV show, Gemini Divided, Jen has no idea what to do. With only a few days to complete her task and kill Will Bryant, the star of the show, Jen decides instead to believe he is innocent and prove it to herself, hoping to keep everyone safe in the process. Will Jen be able to find out the truth about Will, or will he be taken care of, either by her or someone else?

In my opinion, this book is more of a mystery or light thriller than a suspenseful romance, as it is marketed, but there are some romantic moments throughout it. Although I went in expecting a strong romance between the characters, I ended up enjoying all of the other aspects of it as well. Great mysteries surprise me with their twists and turns, and this one ended up doing just that. I loved the banter between Jen and Will, and the plot kept me flipping pages, wanting to know what the next chapter would bring. Also, the cover of Gemini Divided is absolutely stunning and is what first caught my attention when deciding what book I wanted to read next. I would recommend Gemini Divided by Lauren Kristen Roberts to all mystery lovers out there; it was a fun one!
