ooh-ing over how kick-ass Rainie is and sighing rapturously over her relationship with Roc, her husband, this book definitely sped by. I was halfway through before I even realized it.
Rainie is definitely my sort of girl; she's able to take care of herself when it comes to fisticuffs, but she's also very feminine, with very womanly wants and needs that she's not afraid to address. The conflict between who she was as an agent and who she was as a woman was handled very realistically and I was definitely hankering to know what she would choose in the end.
The suspense was also well done, I didn't necessarily like how it was set up so that you weren't sure who was the mastermind, but the ending was definitely a surprise that I didn't even get a hint of. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes their suspense with a healthy dose of romance thrown in and I'm hoping for a sequel to this because I can't see Roc and Rainie just fading off into the sunset.
Special Agent Rainie McClain wants out. Out of The Agency. Out of the shadow life that has consumed her for far too long. Walking away from The Agency means letting go of the only man she's ever loved, her husband, Captain Roc Branson. But at thirty-eight, Rainie has seen all the violence and death she can handle. And after discovering she's pregnant, she just wants a normal life.
But what can be normal about the reappearance of a long lost brother who may or may not be a sadistic killer, the heartrending demise of her marriage, and the web of lies that grows until she no longer knows who to trust?
It's vital that she discover the truth soon...because what she doesn't know, just might kill her.
