My review:

This definitely wasn’t what I expected but that certainly doesn’t mean I didn’t find it an intriguing read. Packed with spy/thriller action is what I’d anticipated. What I hadn’t anticipated is that most of the mission takes place on a specialist island holiday resort – one which caters for guests who wish to participate in BDSM type sexual activities, one where the partners/sex slaves are meant to go around naked all the time.

Now I admit that had I read that in the synopsis I wouldn’t have requested the book in the first place but I have to say I’d have missed out on a well written suspense with plenty of criminal action as well as steamy encounters. It is also laugh out loud funny at times as the leading lady, Bridget Jamison, is definitely not used to acting as a submissive and really finds it difficult to maintain the role. She gets into all sorts of bother because of this, especially with the ‘manageress’ of the resort and one particular male holiday maker! So, be prepared for very hot, Dom/Sub steamy encounters as part of an enthralling secret service, action packed, suspense and romance! Just to show how good it must be, I actually want to know what happens in the rest of the series asap please!

Many thanks to Entangled for gifting me an ARC of this via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.

Synopsis:

Condor earned his reputation by being Delta Star’s ultimate secret agent. He’s untouchable, unstoppable, and he always nails his targets. But no matter how many times he’s saved the world, he’s a ghost who will never take credit. He works best alone, and to continue to protect his country, he’ll stay alone. 

New Delta Star field agent Bridget Jamison is obsessed with capturing Simon Perez, the elusive terrorist responsible for her ex-fiancé’s death. When the Delta Star director hands the case over to Condor, a mesmerizing ghost agent who has the power to make her weak in the knees with one intense look, Bridget agrees to be Condor’s partner so that she’s not dropped from the case and her chance for justice.

Now they’re on a mission to infiltrate a dangerous criminal organization and capture Perez. It’s up to Condor to keep this beautiful, determined agent out of harm’s way, and to keep their explosive passion contained long enough not to risk their cover…and their lives.

About Julie Castle

I’m author Julie Castle. I’m a natural born romantic with a modicum of artistic talent that I inherited from my mom and a love for telling tall tales that I got from my dad. I guess that set me up for being a starving artist, the biggest fibber in the world, or a romance author. I’m so glad that I chose the latter.

I’ve always had a love affair with the written word. As a child growing up in a small town I loved visiting the local library, a converted gilded age mansion, and getting lost between the pages of a book. The drafty old mansion could be a spooky place but I still loved it. I enjoyed poking into behind the scenes areas I wasn’t supposed to venture into. I’m still the same way which is why I love writing romance with an edge, paranormal, suspenseful, super sexy, or just laugh your pants off funny I hope you’ll find it in my books.
