Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Title: Special Forces: The Spy
Series: Mission Medusa
Author: Cindy Dees
Publisher: Harlequin: Romantic Suspense
Published: June 4th, 2019
Wow, who would have thought helping a neighbour out by taking his son to school could result in being kidnapped! That’s what happens in this fast paced romantic suspense, the second book in the Mission Medusa series.
Whilst returning to the school to drop off the packed lunch of her neighbour’s son, the tranquility is shattered as armed men rush in. Piper Ford is one of the women training to be part of the top secret, elite, women-only, Medusa force but hadn’t anticipated that one of the kidnappers, Zane Cosworth, would identify her as their target. He’s actually an undercover spy and spotted her wearing a ring which identifies her as being military. He hopes she’ll be able to help him thwart the insurgents whilst he discovers their plans but can he convince her to work with him and can he keep her safe? Can they escape unharmed and bring the kidnappers to justice?
This is a suspense filled story that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Even when you assume everything is sorted, there are further twists and missions necessary for things to be resolved. The characters are well developed and easy to empathise with and I didn’t want to put it down until I’d finished it. I will, however, warn that there are violent scenarios and a simulated rape, they aren’t over graphic and are integral to the story, just thought I had better say in case either are trigger for you. I have no hesitation in highly recommending this story – and this series – to anyone who enjoys feisty, warrior women meeting their love under suspense filled circumstances and having to battle to win against the odds.
I requested and was given a copy of this book, via NetGalley. This is my honest review of the book after choosing to read it.
I have also previously read and reviewed the first book in this series,
Special Forces: The Recruit
and highly recommend that story, too. Although the stories follow on from each other chronologically and the characters from the first story are in the second, I believe both books can also be read and enjoyed as standalones.
A secret agent kidnaps an undercover operative!
The Mission Medusa series continues…
To maintain his cover, spy Zane Cosworth kidnaps Medusa member Piper Ford. She might be trained to endure a hostage situation, but when one of her kidnappers continues to protect her from harm, she finds herself losing her heart. They flee for their lives, and the lines between enemy and lover begin to blur. But will they survive long enough to explore this new passion?
