“Impressive . . . Zanetti’s action sequences are sharp and dynamic.”
—The New York Times Book Review
Too quiet. A talented hacker who got caught, Brigid Banaghan is now forced to work with a secret Deep Ops unit. But she won’t reveal any more to these renegade Feds than she has to. Especially not to Raider Tanaka, her control freak of a bodyguard and handler. It’s enough that his body is tensed for action and his heated gaze is always on her . . .
Too sharp. Raider knows there’s more to his new assignment than he’s been told. Why send a deadly agent of his experience to guard a computer genius—even a gorgeous, unpredictable, undisciplined one? But when Brigid’s estranged father is named in an investigation into Boston’s organized crime, Raider’s mind switches onto high alert, just like his senses . . .
Too close. To clear her father’s name, Brigid needs Raider’s help. The Unit’s idea that she bring a straight-laced Fed in as her “fiancé” won’t fly, though—not unless Raider can release his inner bad boy and become the rebel Brigid can’t resist . . .
Praise for the debut novel in the Deep Ops series
“Explodes with action, spice and humor.”
“Fans of J. D. Robb and Karen Robards will love Zanetti's series
“The suspense is chilling and the romance is hot.”
Zanetti follows Hidden with another high-octane mix of action, romance, suspense, and the perfect amount of levity. Brigid is a government-sanctioned computer hacker with a penchant for bad boys. She's part of an offshoot division of Homeland Defense in Washington, D.C., that's staffed with misfits who have something to prove. When she and her handler, Raider Tanaka, are forced to go undercover and pose as a couple to stop a computer crime ring with ties to the mob (and clear her father's name in the bargain), they quickly discover their attraction is real. Raider is a federal agent with no time for entanglements; he's all about his job and getting revenge on the men who killed his partner. He tries to force himself to see Brigid as just a means to an end, no matter how much she intrigues and challenges him. The blend of memorable personalities found on the Deep Ops team, combined with a slowly teased-out bigger story arc, makes for a deliciously inviting and immersive story.
The hacker and the Fed!
With Fallen we get Brigid and Raider's story, the hacker and the Fed. You could feel the tension between these two from the first moment they were introduced in book one, so I'm thrilled to finally get there story.
It's time for these two to have their first mission where they take point through a connection with Brigid's father. Turns out he has a past life she never knew about which has drawn her into danger and has Raider fighting to keep her safe.
I feel like we really got to know Brigid and Raider. A lot of their past and their motivations were revealed that just added another piece to the puzzle of this rag tag Deep Ops team. Raider won me over with his fierce protection of Brigid, and Brigid was a great heroine. She was sensible, and smart, and a vital part of the team with her hacking abilities.
Wolfe is still my favorite character, well...next to Roscoe the dog. That dog is crazy and gives me great joy, but I'm so excited to find out that Wolfe and Dana's story is next!
Absolutely fantastic read!!
I am loving this series so much and Raider and Brigid's story is absolutely fantastic! I love both of their characters!! This book has all the elements of a romantic suspense that I love and then some. There is also a nice dose of humor injected into the story via Rosco's antics. Not going to say anything else about that but you will LOL for sure! There are some other colorful characters on the team too that will make you LOL. Such a great bunch of people!
Brigid and Raider are basically going undercover as an engaged couple. There is clear attraction between the two and obvious chemistry for sure, but this might not be the best time for an office romance. Can their fake engagement turn into a real romance? Will the case they are working on come between them? Will they give in to what they feel for each other?
This story is fast paced and totally awesome and I cannot wait for the next book about Wolfe, Broken.
