I’m reading this series with a Goodreads group. It’s a spinoff of the Titanium Security series we recently completed. I will be posting reviews every month as we read each book.
FBI Special Agent Clay Bauer met his teammate Tuck’s cousin Zoe Renard when she came to Baltimore a few weeks ago and she got underneath his skin like no one has since his disastrous marriage and divorce. Now he’s in her territory, New Orleans, for a conference along with his teammates and other security & intelligence professionals. She’s gearing up for an all out effort to start something and he’s preparing for it and worried that he won’t be able to resist. Meanwhile, Zoe’s volunteer work at a women’s shelter has unknowingly put her in the crosshairs of an extremely dangerous ex-boyfriend of one of the victims.
I devoured this story and found it hard to put down once things got dicey, which was early on. I fell for both of these characters in the last book as Zoe is unconventional, quirky and embraces life while Clay is almost polar opposite. He’s physically imposing at 6’4” and muscular to a fault so he gets away with being taciturn and solitary…until Zoe who sees right into his soul. Their romance was just as explosive as the action and suspense, which is saying something because that was off the charts. The danger was palpable, taking my breath away…as did the steamy interludes!
Cross is an absolute master at writing vivid, scary and riveting action scenes but she outdid herself in crafting Clay and Zoe’s romance. Both deserved a good story and they got a great one. This is definitely my most favorite to date and I had high expectations that were far exceeded.
