Rushdan portrays her mastermind criminal with welcome nuances he longs to destroy the U.S. government to avenge his loved ones' deaths and leaves the identity of an agency mole unresolved, which will have readers eagerly waiting for the sequel to this arresting romantic thriller.
What an amazing ride with viewpoints from the 3 major characters, romance and suspense. Cannot wait to read the next 2 books.
Let me tell you, I almost never review the books I read on here, simply because it takes too long. But I have to share how phenomenal I thought this novel was. The twists, the interactions between the characters, all of it. Cole and Maddox have such great wordplay, and it doesn’t feel forced like written dialogue can. I love that the whole team has individually important roles, that the author focused on throughout the novel, rather than fading them into the background. I can’t wait to continue to uncover the mystery, and find out the real culprit. I’m really looking forward to book 2, starting today!
