Cali Stanton is a doctor and is working for Doctors Without Borders in Africa. Her father is CEO of the family business Stanton Enterprises, but he had an accident and he asks Cali if she could come and cover his job in the company for three months while he is recuperating. Cali goes home immediately and gets filled in by the new security team about threats made and shipments that have been hijacked. The security team is Matthew and Jason Andersen. They have been hired to figure out who is making the threats and try to stop the hijacking. They also upgrade security for the company and the CEOs home. Cali and Matthew have an immediate very strong attraction to each other which they fight. Since he is working for her, there cannot be a relationship between them. This is a nice quick romantic suspense. I liked that Cali and Matthew didn't just jump right into bed as most novels seem to do. But the end was very abrupt. It just ended.
When I received the pitch to read Hidden Threat by Sherri Hayes, I responded right away as romantic suspense is one of my favorite genres! I love action packed books that keep me guessing. I love reading and learning about other relationships and how people think. It's fascinating to me to read about how other couples are in their personal relationships and how they respond to each other. Hidden Threat centers around Cali Stanton and Matthew Andersen. Cali moves back home to take over the family business while her father recovers from an injury. However, at the same time, the family business has been receiving threats and has had product stolen. Cali is unaware of the danger until her first day on the job as CEO. As head of security, Matthew takes on the role of protecting Cali. They are both attracted to each other when they first meet, but aren't able to act on their feelings due to their job titles. Cali is CEO and Matthew's boss. Matthew always felt the need to protect Cali, even before he fell for her. They both feel the same way about each other, but they also both doubt the other feels the same way. This feeling is natural with any budding romance. This just makes it more exciting when they finally reveal their true feelings for each other. Cali and Matthew are both stubborn and it does cause friction between them. They have their disagreements different opinions but they learn to work through them and make it all work out. Hidden Threat was a page turner as I read this book in a few days. You will find mystery, suspense, and romance between the pages.
