Series: Deadly Ops Book #5
Author: Katie Reus
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Blurb: The explosively passionate new Deadly Ops novel from Katie Reus, the New York Times bestselling author of Edge of Danger.
After being wounded in action, NSA agent Nathan Ortiz comes home to Miami, eager to return to duty. But he doesn’t expect his newest mission to lead him straight to the one woman he loved, lost, and has never gotten over.
A beautiful, successful restaurateur, Amelia Rios enjoys giving back to her community, especially to struggling women. Then a woman she recently hired stops showing up for work, and, unfortunately, she isn’t the first to go missing.
Soon Amelia finds herself thrust into a shadowy, dark world, working side by side with Nathan, the only man she’s ever loved. They must confront old feelings as they battle a ruthless enemy preying on the poor and weak. The heat simmering between Nathan and Amelia could mean a second chance for them—but first they have to survive.
Thoughts: I’m not really sure what it was about this newest edition to the Deadly Ops series, but this one just isn’t one of my favorites. The writing style seemed just different than prior books – not to mention the constant changes in points of view which for some reason really seemed to bother me in A Covert Affair. I also had trouble connecting with the characters – and I absolutely love Katie Reus too, whether it be romantic suspense or paranormal/fantasy, I’m always up for reading one of her books. However, this one just wasn’t a favorite of mine.
