Assassin Alex Morgan will do anything to save an innocent life—especially if it means rescuing a child from a hell like the one she endured.
But going undercover as husband and wife, with none other than the disarmingly sexy Detective Nate Sanders, may be a little more togetherness than she can handle. She's used to working alone, and no man is going to change that—not even a man who makes her heart pound and her defenses crumble with just a touch
Nate has dodged more than a few bullets over the years, but fighting his attraction for Alex may be the bullet that does him in. Still, Nate's determined to help her find the missing kid. There's no doubt in his mind that they're walking straight into danger, but Nate's willing to face anything if it means protecting Alex. She might have been on her own once, but Nate has one more mission: to stay by her side—forever.
Ah, I get all excited when I read an excellent story and get ready to write the review!
I wish I had caught this series before, I absolutely love the tone of this author. The whole story is a perfect blend of action, love, tragedy, and humor. I truly enjoyed it!
Nate and Alex's love story is such beautiful tale. The tragedy and horror of Alex's past, and nearly constant reminder of the inhumane treatment Alex suffered is in between them, but their fight for the chance for a relationship. The way Nate handles Alex's brokenness, his understanding towards her wounds, it is heartbreaking and so adorable. There are so many *swoon worthy* scenes in this story, but the fishing trip must be one of my favorites.
The action is explosive and fiery. It is drizzled through the story, and kept me on my toes. With several unexpected surprises in the plot, there's no possibility that I could have lost interest in the story at any point.
Absolutely exhilarating action packed romance ~ Five spoons!
