Review by Susan:
The first book I read by this author was on my list of best reads of 2017 so I had high hopes for this, it definitely does not disappoint!! I was hooked from the first page and spat out at the end! The story follows CIA agent Lucia Rizzo, her op is to find out who the navy seal mole is, the job is stateside so even better, what she isn’t expecting is to have to work with an ex Tony, or the sexy Gabe wilcox who turns her world upside down!
This book had me on the edge of my seat the whole way through, there are loads of twists and turns that keep you turning the pages, just when you think you have it figured out, there’s another twist. The heat between rizzo and Gabe is seriously off the charts, it literally sizzles the pages. I loved the banter between Rizzo, Gabe and Tony, at times it has you laughing out loud. Rizzo is the perfect combination of sass, Witt, charm with a side of kick ass that keeps the boys in line!
This really is an incredible read that will have you on tender hooks and keep you guessing right till the end, the story and characters will stay with you long after you have finished reading and leave you with a huge book hangover! 5 Stars!
I live in Dallas but I am not a Texan by birth, I am a transplant from Tennessee and married a true Texan so I had to stay. We live in a older home in Dallas proper with our son and goldendoodle (who is roughly the size of a pony).
Writing isn’t my day job, however it is my joy and favorite hobby. I enjoy sending my friends new chapters nightly and hearing their reactions the next day. That is why I write, being published is just a bonus really. My real job is the same every day, but at night I get to be someone else and write about all these fun adventures and sexcapades:) When I’m writing you can find me on the couch, earbuds in and a full glass of wine beside me. Music inspires my stores, at the end of each book I list the playlist that helped me through writing the novel.
When I am not working or writing, I am reading. I go through about 3 books a week and I am 100% sure that I’m that annoying person at book-club that gets on to people when they are not keeping up with the monthly readings or suggest the movie is as good as a book (Sometimes I wish I could vote those people out of book-club like they do on Survivor. “The tribe has spoken”).
My favorite authors that inspire my writing are: Colleen Hoover, Sarah J. Maas, Sandra Brown, and Rainbow Rowell.
