Series: Deadly Ops #5
Author: Katie Reus
Release Date: March 1, 2016
The explosively passionate new Deadly Ops novel from Katie Reus, the New York Times bestselling author of Edge of Danger.
After being wounded in action, NSA agent Nathan Ortiz comes home to Miami, eager to return to duty. But he doesn't expect his newest mission to lead him straight to the one woman he loved, lost, and has never gotten over.
A beautiful, successful restaurateur, Amelia Rios enjoys giving back to her community, especially to struggling women. Then a woman she recently hired stops showing up for work, and, unfortunately, she isn’t the first to go missing.
Soon Amelia finds herself thrust into a shadowy, dark world, working side by side with Nathan, the only man she’s ever loved. They must confront old feelings as they battle a ruthless enemy preying on the poor and weak. The heat simmering between Nathan and Amelia could mean a second chance for them—but first they have to survive.
Danger and love make for an explosive story!
Right from the start I knew that danger and action were going to be plentiful in this romantic suspense story set in steamy Miami. Nathan Ortiz and Amelia Rios have fond memories of each other from years ago but their relationship didn’t end well. Trust was broken and now, when they find themselves knee-deep in chaos, they will either mend things between them or break them forever…
If you are looking for a sexy second chance romance blended together with tension, danger and suspense, you have chosen the right book! Nathan is a military man turned secret agent who is cool and competent in every situation. Amelia knew him when they were teenagers and seeing him again brings back all the feelings from that time—the best and the worst.
This is the fifth in the series and the stories are only getting better. Amelia is haunted by how things were left between her and Nathan, and when she gets a chance to get closure, it is a painful but liberating experience. She is an edgy character, smart and committed to doing the right thing. She approaches the situation with caution but also trusts her own instincts when it comes to love and life-threatening situations. Nathan is a tantalizing mix of protective alpha and vulnerability. He struggles to do right by his employer, who gave him a second chance, plus the woman he loved and never forgot.
Sexy and full of tension this was a great read from start to finish!
