John Noble returns in a new adventure to thwart the Unknown Identities agency's latest attempt to rebuild...
Scott Blackwell proudly served the U.S. Army until he was accused of murder, court martialed, and imprisoned. When a covert team pulls him out of his cell things go from bad to worse with an impossible ultimatum: kill one target and go free, or go back to jail for life.
Jaime Castle is headed home to Montana for some much-needed vacation time. Wrestling to change a flat tire on a deserted road, she's grateful for the help of a stranger - until she finds herself caught up in a world of trouble and danger she didn’t know existed. Now she must decide who to trust and what to believe before it's too late.
Moving Target lured me into the sinister, dark world of black ops, where everything goes, laws are just guidelines, manipulation and power games are the norm and super soldiers do exist with unique gifts to enhance their performance.
I admit I am hooked. As soon as the bigger picture started to open up to me with the twisted, evil means the Unknown Identities (aka the UI) tries to 'recruit' new members, and who were the good guys and who were to be avoided, I wanted to go back and start from the beginning because I was hooked, intrigued and mesmerized by this creepy world the author had created.
The characters were charming. But even more than charming, the trouble they were in because of the UI had put them into the position, that predicament made me feel for them. The way they were willing to sacrifice all for their brothers in arms, their protectiveness, and the need for justice is admirable, the constant fear and tension in the air is alluring in an eerie way.
I genuinely liked Scott Blackwell and Jaime Castle. The way Scott was facing the challenge, his honesty and dignity just floored me. And Jaime, so calm, cool, composed even after finding there was a target in her back. How can you not admire that?!
The way Scott and Jaime connected and bonded, their sincerity with each other, it was sexy and sweet in just the perfect dozes.
It seems that the series is at a beginning of a new twist, so to say, with John Noble's return and the new location in Montana where they find themselves protecting Scott and Jaime against the UI. I will be going back to catch up from the start, but this also seemed like a great spot to jump in, so to speak, if you are a new for the series.
Military action with a touch of super-powers, vicious battles against the UI who is a constant threat to their lives, combined with seductive romance with steamy love scenes is just a perfect way to heat up a winter night.
