They took her best friend.
Now she's taking them down.
Viviana "Quillery" Chambers has one mission: find the people behind Hive's betrayal and take them down. She and her best friend are the most sought after back office operatives around. She'll stop at nothing to keep her new team and family at The Arsenal safe. But someone's put a six million dollar hit on her and ghosts from the past have returned. She's facing her toughest challenge ever. Now she has a mysterious assassin shadowing her every move. He's vowed to keep her safe, but she's part of the Quillery Edge.
They never quit. They never surrender. They never let anyone stand between them and their quarry.
He had one rule: Don't mess with his family.
Judson Jensen's lived a solitary life taking down targets no one else dared touch. The bastards he's wasted twenty years working for took his brother. The choice was supposed to be simple—neutralize the Quillery Edge or your brother dies. Unfortunately for them he had another choice—take them down. All he needs is to earn the brilliant, fiercely sassy Viviana's trust and keep her alive.
The two must work together to do the impossible: take Judson's employer down.
This isn't business…it's personal.

So far I am loving this series. Looking foward to the next one. Ofter reading Sight line I had to go back and read Jagger Edge. Will be reading more by Ms. Carnes
Three and a half stars. I read the first book in this series a couple of years ago, at that time I likened the novel to Elle Kennedy's excellent Killer Instincts series or Julie Ann Walker's Black Knights Inc series. Having read the second book I'm going to downgrade my initial euphoria. This is the spec-ops equivalent of space opera (in my opinion). So, a brief recap, Viviana “Quillery” Chambers is 50% of the operational powerhouse known as the Quillery Edge, her BFF Mary is The Edge. Together she and Mary have masterminded more SpecOps missions than anyone else. They were the brains behind the business known as The Hive, which turned out to be a front for a group of terrorists called The Collective. Mary and Vi developed the cutting edge HERA security program and The Collective will do anything to get its hands on the tech. In the last book Mary got together with Dylan Mason. He and his six brothers run a rival organisation, The Arsenal, based in their small home town. Jud 'the Judge" Jensen is an assassin working within The Collective but somehow aloof, when The Collective put a $6 million hit on Vi he steps in to threaten to kill anyone who attempts the assassination because years ago Vi saved his brother Danny when a mission went sideways. When The Collective ups the ante by kidnapping Jud's brother Jud realises he has to make a choice and he chooses to walk away from the dark side and join up with Quillery Edge and The Arsenal. If you love high octane suspense where everyone has unique skills, everyone belongs to a group with a shadowy name (The Hive, The Arsenal, The Collective, Quillery Edge etc), there are geniuses and spec-ops heroes everywhere and mysterious faceless enemies you will adore this. It's fast-paced, engaging crack-cocaine that doesn't take itself too seriously. Having said that, Cara Carnes doesn't need her spec-op heroes to rescue her heroines, these gals are more likely to be the ones doing the rescuing! Her heroines are (mentally) strong, extraordinarily bright, focused and loyal through and through. I thought this novel was going to focus on the troubles in the local town rather than Quillery - can't wait to see where the next novel leads us. If you don't take this too seriously I think you will love this.
Sight Lines is romantic suspense at it’s very best. Take one bad ass assassin and mess with his family and you bring down hell on your whole operation. Better yet add in the genius back office operator you are being blackmailed to kill and Armageddon will seem tame. When Jud and Vi meet the world is shifted on its axis and you will enjoy the ride. Action, adventure and love a terrific addition to the series.
