This is the third novel in this series and I had previously read the second one, Hard to Forget, and found it an enthralling 5* read so I jumped at the chance to read this one and it was just as great IMHO!
Special Agent Will Berwick is the leader of the secret Black Ops Assassin squad, based at The Cube, a team deeply hidden and working within the British Secret Service. Returning to work after he was almost fatally shot, Will has to be seen by Dr Angel Treherne, a forces psychotherapist. He’s resentful and uncooperative but then his temporary commanding officer orders him to woo and bed her to gain information about her missing brother. Will doesn’t like the idea one bit but is told orders must be obeyed and he’s to use his reputed charisma to good effect to discover more about her brother and his whereabouts.
Angel is worried about her brother, Rhys, but understands why he’s disappeared. She’s loyal, too, and puts up an icy veneer whenever anyone tries to get close to her or asks about her brother. She’s also determined not to date Will but eventually succumbs to going to the ballet with him – more as a punishment than date as they both hate the ballet! However, fate is determined to intervene and she’s also willing to turn the tables on Will. From their highly antagonistic initial relationship they
This is no cosy mystery, it is a gritty, action packed thriller with great characters, a plot that full of surprises and suspense and an unexpected ending! It is a real page turner, one in which both Will and Angel have survived tragedies in their past and their back stories are slowly revealed as they impact on both their actions and reactions. I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys fast paced thrillers written by a highly talented author and packed with suspense, sexual tension and the unanticipated!
Thanks to the publisher for enabling me to read a copy of this via NetGalley. This is my honest review.
Volcanic hot and ambitious Special Agent Will Berwick doesn’t give a damn what his orders are; he’s not taking the enemy—the lovely but arctic Dr. Angel Treherne—to bed. Oh, he’ll root out her secrets, but on his own terms.
Caught up in a tangled web of deceit and betrayal, Angel trusts no one—certainly not alpha-cocky, cunning Will Berwick. First he’s hostile, then he’s charming. Why? What’s he hiding? With her life on the line, she needs to know. Preferably without losing her heart in the process.
