Former SEAL Logan Rodgers and MI6 operative Olivia Hamilton met when the cover op Logan was leading went awry. Olivia had dedicated two years of her life getting close to a terrorist, and it all went up in smoke when the US Navy’s equipment failed. They are soon recruited by ICE, International Clandestine Enterprise, a secret NATO group, dedicated to eradicating terrorism. Olivia suffers from PTSD, no wonder, with what she experienced in her last undercover mission. Logan and Olivia are both alpha personalities who would clash to death, were it not for the inescapable attraction they find hard to fight when they are thrown together on their first mission for ICE as husband and wife… Amy Jarecki is a fabulous historical fiction author, and Hunt For Evil is her first foray into contemporary romantic suspense, and she owns it! I can hardly imagine the amount of research that went into this book. Ms. Jarecki is known for her terrific characters, and Olivia and Logan are as complex as they come. I love that Olivia is a real kick-butt heroine! The author has crafted a fantastic spy agency and the whole environment is reminiscent of James Bond, Jason Bourne or Mission Impossible. I loved that Iceland is where the agency’s headquarters is located, the various locations where the action takes places, the fabulous gadgets, heart-stopping action, and both Olivia and Logan who could qualify as deadly weapons. There is a wonderful cast of international secondary characters, and I cannot wait to see who will be the next stars and what their missions will be. As a suspense story, Hunt For Evil ranks with the best of them, the plot is air-tight, the pace is relentless, plot twists abound; it never stops! As for the romance, I would have preferred more of a slow burn; I found Olivia and Logan mentally drooling over each other for so long a bit tiring, but once the action seriously started, I got over that quickly. There is surgery involved at some point, I was dreading how it would end, but thank goodness, Ms. Jarecki handled it masterfully. The writing is excellent, so are the dialogues, and apart from the fact that Hunt For Evil is a superb action story, I think what impressed me the most is how well Amy Jarecki – who is known for her historical romances – effortlessly switched genres. One would think that the author’s specialty was romantic suspense! Hunt For Evil is a smashing debut to a new series! I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

Hunt for Evil by Amy Jarecki is #1 in her new series, "ICE". While, Ms. Jarecki is known for award winning Historical Scottish Romance, she just proved herself to me, as a Romantic Suspense author, as well. HUNT FOR EVIL is definitely one of those WOW stories. I was completely blown away by the cast of characters, the plot, and her descriptions. Very talented indeed! Fast paced, action packed tale of an international group of retired Navy SEALs, and MI6 agents who battle terriorists, and evil in the world. A very elite International Clandestine Enterprise known as ICE. Navy SEAL Commander Logan Rodgers and Olivia Hamilton, an MI6 assets find themselves in a world of danger, passion, an ISIS kidnapping ring, a madman's hell, love and a battle of survival. I was glued to the pages from the first page and it gripped my attention through the entire story. Never a dull moment! The storyline flows seamlessly and effortlessly. Tissues are needed. Do note, there is violence, romance and love contained in this exciting first ICE series. If you are looking for an action packed with never a dull moment story, then HUNT FOR EVIL, is your next Romantic Suspense read! My hat goes off to Amy Jarecki! Very impressive, indeed! I look forward to the next ICE adventure. I look forward to BODY SHOT, book 2 coming soon. Rating: 5 Heat rating: Mild Reviewed by: AprilR

First in a series. It took a bit for me to get into the story, but once it got going, it was hard to put down. The attraction between Olivia and Logan was fulfilling. His tenderness was endearing, and Olivia finally coming to terms with her own past to see what was right in front of her made the ending tugged at my heart. It was a bumpy ride for this couple, and I enjoyed it. I look forward to more in this series and hope to see glimpses of Olivia and Logan. I received a copy of this story, and this is my unsolicited review.

THIS IS AMY'S BEST STORY TO DATE!!! There aren't enough stars for this one. This is super spies, terrorists, action and hot romance. It is a happy for now with more coming in the near future and I can't wait! Logan and Olivia meet on a op that goes sideways. Logan is a SEAL and Olivia works for MI6. As usual the two governments aren't keeping each other in the communications loop and Logan is ordered to sink the ship Olivia is deep undercover on. He has to get her off the ship since he can't shut off the bombs he set because of defective ordinance. Awesome set up as she wants to kill him at the time for screwing up her chance to take down the leader of ISIS Fahd al-Umari the next day! The terrorist is the one who killed her parents and she's almost got him! The book is the story of a super secret NATO black-ops organization, ICE, that these two fine agents get force recruited into by their respective agencies. The series will be a trilogy of their hunt for Fahd al-Umari and the havoc he and his cohorts spew all over the world. This particular book deals with arms deals and kidnapping-human trafficking. Amy puts real faces to this evil and gives us a believable adventure. I adore these two super agents finding trust and love in each other, the spy and the military commander. Can't wait to get my hands on the next story. Thank you Amy for the opportunity to be your Beta reader and part of your ARC reader group.

Outstanding read. It's fast-paced, action-packed, keeps your attention and is so life-like you'd swear you were reading from a special ops mission manual. This author obviously did her homework. I found this book very real, raw, and true to our current time. This book had me on the edge of my seat rooting for Logan and Olivia to overcome their inner demons because I thought they'd be perfect for each other. You'll have to read the book to see if they make it. There's action at every turn with tension that will have you gripping your book/reader. The book ends perfectly leaving and opening for book 2. Can't wait! Internally, this book left me proud to be an American and thankful for the freedom we have in this country. It also made me grateful for what our military go through to keep us that way. Placing myself with the heroine had me picturing events that happened in the news and how they could have played out. It's eye-opening! I think this will be an exciting series and I can't wait for the other book.

Wow! I love Amy's Highlander books and normally do not read contemporary romance but had to give it a try! I thoroughly enjoyed reading Logan and Olivia's story! When I was reading I could envision that it was happening. Very action packed story that grabs your attention and keeps it! If you love contemporary romance you will definitely don't want to miss this one. I am so glad I ventured out of my norm to read this story! I received an ARC copy for being in Amy's readers group and I am so glad I read this one!

I am used to reading Amy's Scottish highlanders but she knocked this one out of the park as well! Navy Seal Logan Rodgers has devoted his life to the Seals. But when a mission goes awry nothing is the same again. Terrorism is at its highest and most dangerous. And this mission just let one of the worst right through their hands. Olivia Hamilton is a British spy in deep cover for two years. And she has sold her soul. But nothing will stop her from getting her revenge. Not even sexy Commander Rodgers. But with the mission a bust what will happen now? A new agency is created with no political ties at all with the elite from every nation. Its sole rid the world of terrorist. But when Logan and Olivia have to portray a married couple things get heated quick. And with kidnappings of white, blonde you g girls things must progress fast. Can these two overcome their demons from the past to complete the mission or will their feelings compromise everything?? Great start to this new series!!

Hunt for Evil by Amy Jarecki ICE #1 ICE: International Clandestine Enterprises – an elite multi-national but independent entity devoted to fighting terrorists (and evil) manned by the best of the best recruited from around the world. Fast-paced action-packed thrilling suspense, with a bit of romance, made this one book I had trouble putting down. In book one the reader meets Navy SEAL Commander Logan Rodgers out on a mission that goes wonky requiring him to save an MI6 spy Olivia Hamilton from certain death. A few months later the two meet again after being recruited to work for ICE. They are sent on assignment together posing as a couple and are to find a terrorist and bring him down. During the assignment they uncover what is happening to women being kidnapped and used for nefarious purposes. The entire book Logan and Olivia are professional though definitely attracted to one another – even spending some quality time between the sheets while on assignment. This book has radical extremists, kidnapping, evil aplenty, personal demons for the H/h to overcome and interesting characters throughout. At the end of the book two more characters are introduced that will no doubt star in book two and I do look forward to finding out what their story will be. Thank you to the author for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4.5 Stars
