This was a good book. Marie was a serious, honest and caring woman. She cared for her team and her work, plus she was brave. Darren was interesting, cute, and outgoing. He was not afraid to pursue Marie. He was also strong, fun and a bit brave in his own right. I enjoyed how they interacted with each other. It was fun to watch Darren get Marie to understand that even if they worked together it was alright to be together and of course build on their attraction. The romantic scenes were exciting and although I thought they got together a bit fast I liked how it turned out.
The other teammates were interesting characters to. I liked the mystery and action in here and it kept me guessing which was great. And the enemies were not really predictable either, which made it interesting.
