An undercover agent falls for a beautiful target and could pay the ultimate price…
From his first glimpse of her, Luke Renfro can't forget reporter Morgan Westfield…or anyone she came in contact with. The FBI agent's photographic memory for faces—and instant attraction to Morgan—creates trouble for all of them as his team searches for a terrorist in Colorado. And to make matters worse, Luke suspects Morgan's estranged brother may be the target they're looking for. Falling for a criminal's sister could jeopardize his career. And both their lives. Still, resisting the beautiful journalist is almost as impossible as forgetting a face. With the clock ticking, Luke must focus on his assignment in order to protect the innocent—and have any chance of seeing more of the woman he's falling for.
Fast paced, intensifying action, palpable fear, and possible terrorist attack only days away, with the suspects at large.
I was fascinated with Luke's ability to remember faces, and how the unit worked. The level of anxiety rises, as the days go by, and the suspects manage to slip away again and again. The plot was well built, and the doubt of Morgan and her brother Scott being involved in the attacks keeps coming up, as new evidence is coming to light, keeping the intrigue strong and puzzling.
I admire how well Scott's mental challenges were dealt with in the story, how real and realistic the author made the problems and symptoms, and at the same time, respectfully giving out some of the challenges the whole family faces, when dealing with a mental illness.
From the very first time Luke sees Morgan, he feels connected to her. And as they get to know each other, they find out they have much in common. They are at ease with each other, trusting and protecting each other from the very start. The chemistry and attraction is undeniable, but there's more to it, they also form a friendship, share their stories with each other, as their feelings and emotions takes them for a fast ride towards the forever kind of commitments. I loved the maturity they projected, the easy way they were with each other, and the honest and straight forward attitude they had towards their budding relationship.
The story captivated my mind, the characters pique interest in the future books in the series, and the disappearance of Luke's twin brother, Mark, is something that I am craving to find more about. Solid entertainment
