Series: Deadly Ops #4
Author: Katie Reus
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Blurb: The new Deadly Ops novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Shattered Duty—in the series that delivers “fast-paced romantic suspense that will keep you on the edge of your seat!”*
When an assassin tries to kill undercover DEA agent Tucker Pankov the same week his boss is taken out, Tucker has good reason to be paranoid. And when other members of his elite team are not only targeted, but stripped of top-secret security clearance, Tucker has one shot at discovering who wants them dead—and why. So he kidnaps the only woman he thinks can save them.
Brilliant NSA analyst Karen Stafford doesn’t like being forced into anything, especially by someone she doesn’t trust. Yet after a hijacked US-owned drone starts attacking government installations resulting in mass casualties, Karen has to take Tucker’s side. Now, two unlikely allies must unite to prevent an escalating and unthinkable terrorist conspiracy. But as Tucker and Karen grow intimate, they realize the conspiracy runs deep, and their enemies are closer than anyone realized.
Thoughts: I love the Deadly Ops series by Katie Reus – and this one is done so amazingly well, that you can almost see the characters being brought to live on the movie screen as you are reading along. From the kidnapping at the very beginning, to the captive falling for the kidnapper, to the unfolding of and capture of the criminals, this one is non-stop action and a roller coaster ride of events! The characters are very well-written, and it is easy to fall into the romance angle of these two. As always, Katie Reus hits a home run with this one!
