Started out a bit slow, to many characters are introduced without much elaborating as to who they are and what do they add to the story, but still a pretty good book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Slye Temp Book Five
The Slye team is contracted to help two North Korean scientists defect. In the middle of the op, Tanner runs into a woman who claims to have a better way out of the country as the original location had been leaked. When the team follows her lead, Jin thinks they will help her find her sister and take her to America with them. Once they get there, though, the game changes and Jin must trust Tanner to keep her safe.
If you're looking for a story with action and intrigue, this series is the one for you!

This may be my favorite book in the series so far. I swear they just keep getting better and better. I think I have officially reached that point where I want to go back and reread the entire series because I want more! I want to go back with all the new information revealed in this book and read the others again, so I can see if I should have expected all the surprises. However, I don't think I could have seen them coming. Deceptive Treasures was HUGE for the series. I learned a lot about some the of characters I didn't pay much attention to before, but I want to know everything about them now! This book has left me reeling, and it's going to take a while to move past this one...lol!
First of all, it's written by Dianna Love, so I knew it would be hot and full of excitement. However, being that the book starts off in freaking North Korea, I knew this excitement was going to a whole new level. Add in all the properly used mentions of FUBAR, and, yeah, there was a whole new level of excitement. Those poor Slye Temp guys, of all the places. North Korea guarantees trouble. Dianna Love also has one heck of a talent when it comes to the in-between-chapters cliffhangers. Someone gets shot, then BAM you are somewhere else, dying from the anticipation of what is happening elsewhere, but I love that!!! She does a fantastic job filling in information from the other books, in case you forgot, or have not read them yet. Just let me say though, if you have not read the other books.....GO READ THEM!!!
The little puzzles within the book were amazing as well. All kinds of questions pop up, and trust me, the answers are worth the wait. There were a lot of great surprises in this book. Well, they were great for the readers, not so great for the characters. Jin was one shock after another, but seeing her character develop, really made this story one of the best. I think she is one of my favorite heroines of all time! She is most definitely one of the toughest! The Orion Hunters are taking center stage, and it is fascinating.
Another thing I really love about this book is how crazy the women make the guys. I don't want to give it all away, but just know, a lot of stuff comes out in this book that I think is really setting up the future books of the series. I know it all left me wanting more. I could go on forever about all the greatness stuffed into these pages, but that would ruin the surprises, so get this book and read it, or better yet, get them all!

Deceptive Treasures by Dianna Love is the 5th book in her wonderful Slye Temp series. This series just keeps on rolling, with suspense, thrills, excitement, danger and a super romantic couple. I have to say Dianna Love does a fantastic job with each book in this series, as she flawlessly brings us a new story that always stands on its own, not to mention her continuing to give us such awesome characters.
Tanner is our hero, and one of agents that work for Sabrina Slye at the Slye Temp agency. He is leading a black ops mission to bring home two scientist defectors. Before you can turn too many pages, everything goes wrong, and the team is in danger of being captured, besides losing the defectors. Out of nowhere, comes Jin, a beautiful Amerasian, whom Tanner nicknames Ninja. It is Jin, who gets the team out of danger, and all she wants in return is to be part of those being taken to the US. Tanner does not trust Jin, even though she proves herself over and over, taking them to safety at every dangerous turn. In a very short period, he not only begins to allow her to lead the way away from those trying to capture them, but finds himself totally attracted to her.
Jin makes a wonderful heroine, tough, smart, savvy and dedicated to her family. It is her fierce determination to find her sister, which forces Jin to make a deal for her help, and pray they will take her with them. The romance between Tanner and Jin builds slowly, with us rooting for them, even though we knew that any chance of them staying together was slimmer than none.
When they arrive back in the states, all hell breaks loose, as there were so many twists, and betrayals. A major twist could cause mass destruction, and it is up to Tanner and Jin to find a way to stop it. Since saying anything more would be spoilers, I will just say you need to read this series, and this book, or you are missing a gem.
This was an exciting action packed story from start to finish. Dianna Love writes romance suspense so well, as I consider her one of the best at creating believability and hooking us in from the start all the way to the exciting climax. The suspense is always palpitating, on the edge of your seat, and the romance is always hot, with a fabulous couple. Deceptive Treasures is another terrific addition to the Slye Temp series, which is not to be missed.
