Title: Daring

Series: A-Tak (e-novella) this book comes between books 3 and 4

Author: Dee Davis

Genre:Contemporary Romantic Suspense

As the former medical officer for A-Tac, an elite CIA unit masquerading as faculty at an Ivy League college, Lara Prescott saved many lives. But the memory of the one person she couldn’tsave has brought her back into harm’s way—and into the sights of a formidable adversary . . .


Lara thought working a world away would heal her. Yet volunteering to treat the sick and injured in revolution-torn central Africa can’t stop the shattering memories of losing the man she loved. A night with sexy security officer Rafe Winters seems the perfect temporary escape—until insurgents attack her clinic and Rafe becomes her only way to survive . . .

Rafe knows all too well that this beautiful young doctor is the insurgents’ real target: her knowledge of America’s espionage system makes her a valuable prize. Helping her flee jeopardizes his hidden agenda—but her unexpected trust in him sparks a desire to protect that he can’t ignore. Now as their merciless pursuers close in, Rafe and Lara’s only chance for escape will put everything they’ve sworn to protect—and their newfound love—on the line . . .

I wasn’t sure what to expect from this book as I had enjoyed but not loved the other books in this series. I have to say that I really enjoyed this book. So much that I can’t wait for the next book.  I will say this that if you haven’t read the first three books in the series you may be lost in regards to Lara’s past.

When we last saw Lara she was grieving the loss of Jason, the man that she had planned on being with for the rest of her life. It was never explained if they were married or not but I am going to say yes just because I want to J. That was at the end of Desperate Deeds. It has been almost a year since then and she has completely removed herself from that life.

While she isn’t exactly happy she is content with her work in Africa. With the exception of Rafe the local player, her life is getting back on track. Then she loses a patient and Rafe is there to comfort her.

Then all hell breaks loose and she doesn’t know who to trust.

There is a lot in this little novella. And the twists and turns keep coming at Lara. Just when she thinks that she is safe she gets another blow.

In the midst of all this is Rafe who is more than he seems but on which side is he playing? That is the question that plagues Lara throughout the book, and I have to admit me as well. When he tells Lara what he feels is one of the best parts of the book I think.

This is one of those really quick and easy reads. It is perfect to read on your e-reader at the pool (if you dare).
