Thanks to a traitor,Slye Temp agent Josh Carrington should have died during the blown UK mission, but he didn’t. Scars fade and nightmares can be managed, but he’ll never forget watching an innocent woman die because she trusted him. Tempted by the best, he sticks to Personal Rule Number One: Never mix business with pleasure.
Slye Temp sends Josh to uncover a leak in a DEA task force…a mole in league with the traitor who betrayed the UK team. A deadly shipment is bound for the US and nothing will stop Josh from taking down this mole, blocking the shipment, and nabbing the traitor. Not even Trish Jackson, hardheaded sister of his #1 DEA suspect.
A faceless stalker has turned Trish’s life into a living nightmare and threatens to kill anyone who helps her, including Josh, the new man on her brother’s task force who has planted both unwelcome feet in the middle of her world and refuses to leave. The closer Josh gets to the twisted truth, the more he struggles to keep Trish out of harm’s way–and his bed–but the sultry firecracker gets under his skin like no other woman, forcing him to question everything, starting with Rule Number One.
I have to say I fell in love with the characters in this book. Trish is a sassy, sexy, southern belle; and Josh is one dead sexy hunk. I don’t know about anyone else but one of my favorite parts in a book is the romantic dance between two characters. And the dance in this book is scorching hot. The intricate detail that Dianna weaves onto the pages is no less than impressive, you’d think she was former CIA, or FBI! This story is chock full of action, white hot romance, shocking twists and intelligence.
On a very personal note I found myself really connecting with Trish, who is an alcoholic and has a very protective brother named Zane (you have to read his book, Last Chance to Run). I have a sister who’s also an alcoholic, and has the same name; and considering how over protective I am of my little sister this book really hit home for me on several occasions. The way Dianna wrote Trish’s situation on being an alcoholic was very spot on. Through out the book I kept nodding and “yepping” to her reactions to situations. I love that Zane never gave up on his sister. Until the day I die I know I’ll never give up on mine.
Now I just have to wait for the next Slye Temp romantic thriller: Honeymoon to Die For.
