I adore strong female heroines and Sloan did it for me. Also liked Blaine and the fast paced storyline is totally satisfying. Looking forward to the next one in series.
** This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review ** During the first few pages I was worried that I wasn't going to be able to get into the book. It was all tactical and fighting based... I like my pretty rainbow and unicorn romances. I continued reading anyway because I hate not finishing books or not giving them a fair try... **Thoughts swan dived out the window** I love Baine. I move Sloan. I love Megan!! Everything seemed so perfectly written. The sexual tension. The sex. The fights. Everything! I love a good childhood friendship turning into a hot relationship. Sloan works for the CIA. She doesn't have a social life or a love life and her world revolves around revenge. She's hell bent on killing the man who organized the killing of her parents in her homeland - in front of her. During her latest mission to in D.C. she is ambushed while trying to protect the life of the South African president. One moment she has a gun pointed at her head and the next she's waking up with her attackers brains splattered over the walls. Why hadn't Baine killed her? Why had Baine killed his men? At the Deveroux's compound her new job unravels... and the twisted web becomes clear. I'm finding it had to write this review because I don't want to give any spoilers but at the same time I want to turn into a child as they re-enact how things pan out. *this happened and then that happened and then boom* The rest of the series is now on my TBR... I want Law's story... like now! Deff a rooftop screamer!
I have a soft spot in my heart for women assassins so 26 year old Sloan was a must read for me. Sloan works for the US government in a top secret fashion and after a series of events takes place in DC she goes under cover to South Africa to basically flush out Blaine and his father. Being under cover puts her in some interesting predicaments, especially when Blaine recognizes her as his long lost childhood friend. Blaine was a good hero. He is also kind of a super spy, but a little soft. As in he isn’t afraid to put his emotions out there. Blaine is kind of a complex dude and we learn more about him and his history as the story goes on. I loved having my impressions of Blaine grow as I continued reading. Plus Blaine is kind of hot and he makes the story kind of hot… in the bedroom sense. It took me a little bit to get into the story, but once I did, I was in and had a hard time putting this story down. I think the main reason it took me a while to get into the book was the writing style. The story changes points of view between Blaine and Sloan with no warning. I’d be reading along and all of a sudden realize the new chapter I just started two or three paragraphs ago was actually in the other character’s point of view. It was harder to figure out in the beginning and slowed me down a bit. I also felt the love between our two main characters came a little quickly for me. I wasn’t fully feeling it. Yes, they were friends when they were young, but there were no early signs they were in love before or were both still harboring feelings toward one another. I wish we would have been able to learn more about Blaine and Sloan and get to know them more, but I liked both of the main characters and thought they were great together so I went with it. Enemy Mine has great action and suspense, if you’re like me and love/need those things in a book this just might be the series for you to start. Book two, Justice Mine and book three, Stranger Mine are both out right now and feature other characters from this book. I received an arc of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Enemies to lovers is a great romantic suspense trope; the danger heightens everything both physically and emotionally. In this case, Sloan was tasked with stopping an assassination attempt and her target turned out to be a childhood friend. I felt her dismay, her anger and her determination to do what was expected of her. Blaine had not only been her friend, but he'd been Sloan's light during one of the darkest times of her life. Branch Agent Sloan Harris was one bada$$ heroine. When she was first introduced, you'd have thought she had ice in her veins and in her heart. She only seemed to thaw around her partner. Her back story was full of pain and thoughts of revenge all of which made her into the woman she'd become. Things got interesting once Sloan went undercover as an escort to infiltrate the warlord's sprawling estate. Blaine Kendrick was hell on my hormones. Charming, intelligent, protective, cunning and deadly. The life Sloan thought he'd been living was all smoke and mirrors though as he had a few secrets of his own. He was very protective of Sloan and kept running interference with his father's lap dog, Kobi. Essentially, she had found herself in the position as the shiny new toy in a den full of ruthless animals. All the key players in this story had their own agenda. The exciting part was seeing who would gain the upper hand and manage to stay alive. The chemistry between them was off the charts hot and didn't feel staged despite them playing their roles to stay alive. The sex was graphic, but those scenes never overpowered the story or felt like filler. If I did question one thing, it was Sloan's rather quick turnaround from the hard, closed-off woman in the beginning to the passionate woman she was around Blaine. I thought her admission of falling in love with Blaine came about a little too quickly to feel authentic. I believed Blaine's feelings more readily because of an interesting admission on his part. The build-up of suspense to the climax was a nail-biter all the way to the end. I don't want to give anything away, but there was a big surprise where Blaine was concerned. I wasn't expecting that particular revelation at the end. This was my first Megan Mitcham book, but it won't be my last. If you love a kicka$$ heroine who falls for the enemy, a man whose loyalty is questionable, suspense, intrigue and an exotic setting, then you'll enjoy this fast paced story. *Complimentary ARC provided by the author for the purpose of an honest review.*
