Nicholas Watson craves a little mystery and excitement in his life. After all, he is an undercover agent working for a US counterterrorism unitwhich is not exactly the kind of lifestyle that one should have when searching for someone to settle down with. He yearns for love and intimacy but feels that he will never find it, especially since he has already experienced one failed marriage. His life goes into a tizzy when Kalyna, a beautiful and mysterious European, walks into his life. Nick discovers she also works for her respective government's counterterrorism unit. When Nick and Kalyna are thrown together in a work-related encounter, they fall deeply in lovewhich is not part of their assignment. Because of their line of work, they can never make their relationship known. They continue to be placed together in professional situations, only to be separated again when the work is done.
Another book that really floored me. I hate to review books I didn't like. I don't want to be the one to crush an authors dream, but this book needs an editor-or a better one than it had. The story line could have been written much more interesting and in much more details. This was like reading an outline not a complete story. So much happens with little explanation why and so many different things are going on at the same time. Not to mention the stilted dialogue. Finishing this book became a challenge and I plowed through a few pages a day to do so. I still don't know why I bothered to finish...maybe I thought it would get better-it didn't.
There is an interesting story(I imagine) behind all the...stuff...but it is lost because of the writing and the way the story is rushed through. The end on the other hand is ridiculous and LOL really. I was disappointed by this book and feel like I wasted my time. I really don't understand how this got published to begin with....I've looked at the Tate website and if this is the caliber of writing they accept then reviewing for Tate again will take lots of convincing. Which is sad because I reviewed Losing Michal Malone(from Tate) and that was an amazing book.
Spolier: When I fall in love, the thing I usually do is try to kill that person. What? So confused by this book. The author wrote and told me that I hadn't read the book if this is what I thought happened. Well it did. This is near the ending when Nick is ordered to blow up a building where is love is working. He does it and then is crying when his love comes walking up wondering what happened. She had been at lunch with most of the staff when the Nick blew the building and yet Nick didn't know that? What kind of secret agent is he....pretty crappy I'd say.
I cannot recommend this book to anyone. The author told me that he will not believe any of my reviews and neither should anyone else....well that is just sour grapes. Some books are not meant to be published without better writing and editing, and this is one of them.
I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
