The last thing covert operative Mitch Weaver wants is to be partnered with a gorgeous, reckless newbie. Still reeling from the death of his former partner, Mitch doesn't need the responsibility of keeping anyone else alive, especially when they volunteer to be a killer's target. Not to mention, his attraction to the too-perky blonde is the kind of distraction that could get them both killed in their line of work.

Andrea Carnegie's first assignment isn't going quite as she planned. Her partner might be sexy but he's completely frustrating with his determination to keep her out of danger. Masquerading as a billionaire's sister to bait a possible killer is her chance to shine. But if she wants to catch the person threatening their client, she’ll have to find a way to work together with Mitch while still keeping her distance. Even as the air between them sizzles, Andrea knows the worst possible thing she could do is fall for her partner.

  • Cover – This is genius! It’s so perfect this cover. It tells the story here. I love the color, the vibe. You can “feel”this book through its cover.
  • Plot- Oh! I love it! It’s like Sandra Bullock’s movie and it’s perfect! The agents are not partners, but have come together for this case. Their attraction is undeniable, but they are focus on their job. It’s told in duo point-of-view and this works really well with this story. It’s fast-paced and it kept me wanting more until the end.
  • Characters – I love Andrea. She is a multi-dimensional character and we got to see her as a tomboy but also as a vulnerable woman. I’ve laughed with her and her impulsive ways of trying to prove she can make it. Mitch is also an amazing character. Totally hot, dangerous and focus. I would love to learn more about Karli and Dillon. Andrea’s family are all horrible, which I consider great secondary characters, because they really made me feel angry.
  • heat and romance – The romance was good and it has some great sexual tension.
  • Addictiveness- This was a very easy read for me. In on sitting I’ve finished the book and I’ve ended hoping that Dillon and Karli get a book of their own.

 

Review 2

 

  • Freshness- The plot was a bit predictable. There were a few plot twists, but I already knew who was behind everything early on the story but it didn’t diminish my pleasure with the read.

 

You MAY read this book because you enjoy a light romance; you SHOULD read this book because you like your romance with a dash of mystery and suspense; you MUST read this book if you like me have enjoyed the movie Ms. Congeniality with Sandra Bullock!!!

About Kathleen Mix

Kathleen Mix writes stories with a thrilling mix of romance and suspense.She took an indirect route to becoming an author. After her three sons started school, she returned to college and earned a B.S. in Computer Science and Engineering. Working as a software engineer, she consulted on applications ranging from submarine combat systems to biological research databases.

Weekends and vacations were always reserved for boating. And as an avid sailor and licensed charter boat captain, the itch to sail away into the sunset soon became too strong to resist. She and her husband moved aboard their sailboat and headed south. By the time they reached the Caribbean, they were hooked on a cruising life. Since then, Kathleen has spent many years roaming the U.S. coastline, exploring the Bahamas, and enjoying the tropical islands of the Caribbean and the coastal countries of South America.

She began her writing career with non-fiction sailing and travel articles. But she was sailing to lush, exotic islands under starry skies and walking on the most beautiful, white-sand beaches in the world. She started imagining stories of romance and adventure and turned to writing romantic suspense.

Kathleen now sails on Chesapeake Bay. But her heart remains far away in the Caribbean and the Bahamas. For her thoughts on life and books, follow her blog at http://kathleenmix.wordpress.com or to read excerpts from her books, visit her website at http://www.kathleenmix.com
