Overview

The more she wanted out, the more they dragged her back in.

Daughter to murdered CIA officers, niece to a deputy director, Jaime Walsh has never known life outside the world of espionage. Until a high-action case in Buenos Aires leaves her gutted. Physically, emotionally…and professionally.

She’d planned for her long-overdue vacation to be a time to rest and reassess. With her longtime partner Stephen not far behind, it’s a tropical paradise away from work. A paradise where boundaries will be tested.

From their training days, Stephen Reid has watched Jaime kick ass while performing what has become his second job—watching her back. But now his feelings have grown.

As best friends look at each other in a new light, they like what they see. And Jaime dreams of a new life outside “the company”.

Except someone from their past won’t be satisfied until Jaime and the man she loves are hunted to the brink of death. Now Jaime must find the strength to trust her heart and let go of her fear. Before she loses everything…

Warning: This book contains world travel with stops in exotic locations, a kick-ass heroine who just wants to be left alone and a sexy hero who can’t seem to stop himself from watching her back.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This plot-driven romance opens with longtime CIA team members Jaime, Stephen, and Collin in trouble in Argentina. Jaime witnessed a hit against a coworker gone bad, with the assassin another coworker. Now, she’s been framed for that murder and several others. Her high-ranking uncle gets her and her compatriots out of the country until the situation can be safely resolved. Jaime opts for a vacation in Hawaii and uncharacteristically invites Stephen along. Suddenly, the pair realize they’ve been in love for years and decide to elope. Sixteen months later, the story takes up again when Jaime goes to see her uncle. Arriving early, she overhears something she wasn’t supposed to, and her life is turned upside down once more. From there, the novel is fully plot driven, with our couple frequently in great peril and Jaime rescuing them both from improbable circumstances, Hollywood repartee zinging between them during those perilous situations, Stephen behaving like an ass, Jaime forgiving him in two pages’ time, and the reader having no emotional investment because there has been no time to get to know anyone. Because the relationship started well before the book and all quiet moments occur outside the action, the characters remain two-dimensional.

Verdict The nonstop action keeps reader interest if one is in the mood for an adventure novel that is a bit light on romance.—B. Allison Gray, Santa Barbara P.L., Goleta Lib., CA
