Since a brain-altering drug killed most of Luke Kincaid’s town—including his father—and left him telekinetic, he’s determined to stop the fanatic who stole the drug to create his own super-powered army. That means working with scientist Dr. Beth Jenkins, whose graphic tees and beautiful smile are some of Luke’s biggest distractions.
A science prodigy, Beth works with the FBI and solves the toughest crimes, but she can’t figure out what caused her mother’s early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. The drug that ravaged Luke’s town is volatile, and the mortality rate is still high, yet Beth is convinced it holds the key to saving her mother, even if sexy and tortured Luke doesn’t believe it should be adapted for commercial use.
When bodies start to pile up, though, the two loners must decide if the goals that tie them together are greater the fears that would tear them apart.
The Altered series is best enjoyed in order.
Reading Order:
Book #1 Altered
Book #2 Avenged
Book #3 Absolved


I will say right away that although I really enjoyed this and understood what was happening,  I hadn't read the previous books,  and think it would be better to read the series in order.  That is just because the reason our hero and lots of the other characters are "altered" is very important. 
Dr Beth Jenkins is a genius.  A child prodigy with a true gift for science.  She is working with the government to understand a very powerful drug.  She has her own personal reasons why she signed up for the work. 
Luke Kincade is one of the "altered" . He is telekinetic,  and carries a heavy load of guilt . The powers they received can be very hard to live with. 
When someone with their own mad schemes gains the ability to use the drug, the team must try and counteract it and save as many people as they can. 
Lots of emotion and worries for our lead characters,  and some very unusual fights.  This will grab you on the first page and keep you fascinated all the way through.
