These series felt like a Fifty shades wanna be, same formulaic couple, with the difference that here she is a spy instead of an ingenue...the writing is worst than in Fifty (if that is even possible) but thankfully it goes by quick. I wouldn't bother with it if I could do it over...waste of money.

"Because I love you more than I've ever loved anyone and I don't want to screw this up again."
This is the first series I have read by Cassia Leo and I loved it! It is a 5 part novella series about sexy billionaire Luke Maxwell and corporate spy Brina Kingston.
Brina is hired by one of Luke's competitors to be a corporate spy. It is her mission to work her way into Luke's company and get the information needed to destroy his company.
It was only eight months ago when her life was thrown for a loop by a devastating turn of events. The months following have been mostly a struggle for Brina, she is carrying around the guilt of this tragic event as well as the burden of her parents financial problems. So this job could mean a lot to her career and her financial stability. There is just one thing standing in her way; her attraction to the very sexy Luke Maxwell.
Oh how I loved Luke Maxwell! He is young, smart, rich, oozes sexiness and he also has a heart. He is definitely swoon worthy. When they first meet the sexual attraction is instant and Luke wastes no time getting what he wants; Brina in his bed. Brina has managed to work her way into Luke's company as well as his heart. She starts falling in love with the man she is supposed to destroy. She has to decide which is more important, her career or her heart. Can she stand to get her heart broken to save her career and help her parents? Or should she sacrifice her career for love?
What I love about this book is that is so much more than a corporate spy falling for her target. Brina has some deep issues that she is trying to work out. She is trying to move on and get past the guilt of what happened 8 months ago. Luke is the one that is there for her. She finds herself opening up to him in a way she hasn't done with anyone. And at the same time Luke has his own family issues that he is trying to deal with, not seeing his father since he left home at the age of 18. Brina and Luke have a connection that they cannot deny. They are linked in ways they never thought possible.
I loved every part of this book. But I can honestly say that the end was one of my favorite parts. They agree to be just friend for 30 days to prove that they can get through anything. It is in those 30 days that we see the strong bond that they have. In the beginning we saw the sexual side of their relationship. But what they have together goes beyond that. They aren't just lovers, they are friends, confidants and each other's support system. It was such a pleasure to watch them connect on a different level. I loved the flirting back and forth as "friends". I loved the sweet and caring side of Luke that just wanted to show Brina that there was more to them then just a sexual connection. It broke my heart at times to see the guilt that Brina was carrying around, but seeing Luke help her work through it all just melted your heart. I think in a way they saved each from their past and helped each other to move on.
"But I didn't want to rush things with Brina. She was the kind of girl I could see myself marrying and I didn't want to jeopardize that just to satisfy my intense sexual craving. There was more to our relationship that that and I was determined to prove it"
This book was filled with some suspense, wondering if Luke really knows Brian's reason for working for him, some drama when her secret is finally out. There was laughter, tears and very hot and steamy sex scenes. The ending was simply amazing and will warm your heart and leave you smiling. The story flowed very nicely and it is one of the books you can't put down. You will find yourself rooting for Brina and Luke to work and find the happiness with each other that they deserved. Cassia Leo has done an amazing job and I look forward to reading more of her books.

This book series started off steamy (books 1-5) and then fizzled out (books 5.5-7). I feel the story could have ended after book 5; books 5.5-7 were unnecessary and didn't add anything to the tone set in its predecessors. After reading book 5, I was ready to give this series a 5-star rating, but then I read books 5.5 through 7 and dropped my rating considerably. Although I decided on a 2-star rating for the entire series, I did appreciate the character development throughout this fast paced series.
