Trained for Seduction is the first book in the Spy Games series by Mia Downing. I chose this book because I have enjoyed every Mia Downing book I have read. I have not read a bad book my Ms. Downing and this book did not disappoint.
Emma Walter with the help of plastic surgery became Kate Wells. She is a super smart and sexy woman. She is confident in her abilities. She agreed to being trained as a spy rather than go to prison. She comes across as a likable character one that your heart goes out to as she battles Chase for his heart.
Chase Sanders is a smart, sexy and confident man. He hungers for the one woman that got away from him, Emma who is now Kate. Chase guards his heart because in the end due to his job he thinks that most people will hate him and it’s just better that way. He is a very complicated person. It seems that Chase is his own worst enemy.
The chemistry between Kate and Chase is explosive. They are a good match for each other in and out of the bedroom. I loved that the thing that attracted Chase to Kate the most was her mind. The sex scenes were blistering hot. I loved that Kate was not intimidated by Chase in anyway not even when they first meet.
I loved this book! There is nothing that could have improved this story, it was perfect just the way it was. This book goes in the small pile of book that I will re-read in the future. I cannot wait to read the next book in the series! I already have it on my e-reader and I will be starting it once I am finished writing this.

COVER DESIGN: Intriguing contrast of light and dark. Nice mix of romance, passion, and adventure/ action. The font is bold and block, which is perfect and definitely makes me want to read the book more.
WHAT I LIKED: The dedication is funny, but still so sweet: “To my husband, for snoring. If you didn’t snore, I wouldn’t have been spending decadent nights with a dark, dangerous Lord of the Spies.” The author’s use of descriptions sucks you in to the story, making you forget that you are reading a book and not actually living out the events. Mia Downing has a specialty when it comes to sex scenes. *Wipes forehead and fans self*
WHAT I DIDN’T LIKE: Would have liked to see more of Jake, but maybe he will have his story some day
