Publication date: October 1st 2014
Genres: Adult, Romance, Suspense
For justice. For country. For love.
After witnessing her friend’s sexual assault, seven year senior, Magdalena Wells escapes an attack with a few bruises and a thousand questions. As a journalist in practice, if not in pay, Mags vows to utilize the skills she mastered in the Democratic Republic of Congo and answer every single one, just as soon as she gets the hell out of town.
Law Pierce’s aim is rest and relaxation after two years undercover in South Africa on an extended Base Branch mission, but restlessness puts him in trouble’s path. As a servant of justice, Law will do everything in his power to keep trouble safe. The fact that trouble’s petite stature and luscious curves stir his every primal instinct is a massive inconvenience he struggles to ignore.
Together Magdalena and Law uncover a web of corruption and dirty lies that could set their country’s top official ablaze, if the inferno doesn’t consume them first.
What I Liked:
Strong main characters who complimented each other, and allowed themselves to be vulnerable with each other.
There was lots of action, there never seemed to be a dull moment.
Explosive chemistry between Law and Mags.
Steamy love scenes - eventually.
Law finally understanding why Baine had to do what he did in book 1, Enemy Mine.
What I Didn't Like (I really hate writing this part):
The mystery of where the threat to Mags originated from seemed pretty obvious to me, but it was totally ignored until almost the end.
I enjoyed reading Law and Mags' story, I even found myself sneakily reading it while I was working. It left me wanting to read more, looking forward to reading Stranger Mine.
