CIA operative Renee Niezen has heard tales of the guardians, though she's never really believed in their existence—until she is approached by Charlotte, an old friend who desperately needs her help to stop the systematic destruction of the guardian program. Renee accepts the plea for assistance, but not everyone is thrilled to have her on the team. Kade—one of the last guardians standing—is unimpressed with Renee's qualifications and turns instead to the legendary Saint Squad for help. But when Renee is caught in the crosshairs, Kade must set aside his antagonism for the woman in order to protect her. Their grudging alliance soon develops into much more—but before the pair can examine their feelings, their investigation takes a dramatic twist. With lives on the line, Renee and Kade must use their spy training at every turn as they draw dangerously close to the shocking truth.
My review: I love the way this author writes her books! She fills them with suspense, great characters and a love story that you don't want to miss. There's always tons going on in her books and I never want to put them down!
This one was fabulous! I loved Renee. As the book opens, she agrees to do a favor for an old friend, but she had no idea that it might cost her her life. I love that she wants to help find out what's going on, so even with the danger to herself, she keeps trying. She has to go into hiding with one of the guardians, Ghost or Kade.
I liked Kade too. I liked that he tried to make himself more aloof from Renee, because that's how he is with everyone, but he can't quite do it with Renee. He keeps letting out little bits of his past that he never shares with anyone. But at the same time, he knows he can't have the kind of life that Renee would want. He works so hard to protect Renee, and figure out who is after the two of them before it's too late.
And I really loved that this one includes the whole Saint Squad! They are some of my favorite characters ever, I love that you get to see a little bit of how a lot of them are feeling about being targeted yet again.
I loved how the action in this one starts right away. You have no idea just who is shooting at everyone or just why they are. It took literally the whole book to figure out who the killer was, and there's no way I would have been able to guess from the beginning who it was.
This is such a great book! Make sure to get your own copy!
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
