***I received this book as a gift***
Alandra Pargas, ex-CIA counter-intelligence officer, plans to wreak vengeance on the people who tried to kill her. A little rendezvous with danger is not what scares her, though. It’s seeing the tall, dark, and dangerously sexy man she vowed to love forever that has her running for cover.
Former U.S. Special Operative, Quinn Hamilton, left the world of covert operations after the love of his life died in his arms during a black op. Three years later, he still loses sleep wondering if maybe he could have done something more to save her – until Alandra shows up on his doorstep. With her lies and betrayal, he wants nothing to do with her, yet, his heart won’t cooperate. It’s not until unknown enemies come after her that he must decide if he can leave the past behind and protect the woman he’ll always love. Will they survive this last mission and rekindle the love and passion they once shared?
I loved this 18 chapter book. I said it once, and I’ll say it again, I’m a huge fan of Sharon C. Cooper. Her writing style manages to flow naturally with great description. She focuses on characterization, setting, dialogue, and plot to the point that readers can get lost in the story. I could see this book as a blockbuster hit.
My favorite lines: 1) It had been three long years. If she were still alive, she would have found some way to contact him. Wouldn’t she? 2) “I’m too old for this crap.” 3) He really did like Alandra, but she should have stayed dead.
Imagine being separated from someone you love because of something you can’t control. That’s what happened to Quinn. He thought his wife, Alandra, was dead. Imagine his frustration and relief to find out the truth. I thought his friends Malik and Wiz were nice additions to the story. They brought some comic relief.
The author did a great job of portraying sizzling sexual tension between Quinn and Alandra. A couple of scenes, I blushed. Alandra was a lucky woman! The author also managed to have suspenseful moments. The entire time I worried about all the characters’ safety. She had enough red herrings that will have readers guessing who’s after Alandra and who wants her dead. It was fun getting some insight from the bad guy (or woman).
There was a nice twist at the end.
I RECOMMEND this book to read.
