I’m currently reading this series with one of my Goodreads groups, one book a month. So, I thought I’d share my reviews here as we complete them.
Claire Tierney is an NSA analyst who found herself in a security intelligence situation after she agreed to get some information for her ex-boyfriend, Gage Wallace, an operative for Titanium Security. Her discovery triggered the need for a joint task force to investigate their findings and now they’re both assigned to the project. And because she’s potentially a target, Gage is also tasked with protecting her until the threat is neutralized. He’s still wanting a relationship. Claire…not so much.
I really liked Gage and respected Claire. Her angst, however, was terribly annoying. While I understood her reasons for walking away from the relationship six months ago, it’s how she did it that was perplexing. Her reactions to them being thrust together again professionally felt immature and their differences seemed like they could have been resolved with one conversation. That being said, I did like their chemistry. I also enjoyed the continuing story arc from the first book. Including the terrorist’s point of view made the story more sinister and amped up the suspense.
While the identity of the orchestrator of the threat is still unresolved, the immediate danger was satisfactorily concluded. I enjoyed the story overall, liked the romance but didn’t love it. The first book was non-stop action but this one had much less focus on suspense, which was a disappointment.
