Jason MacBain is the perfect agent. Tall, dark, and deadly, he is a man who lives by simple rules—kill the bad guys and protect the world. Closed off from his emotions, Jason's control is legendary. He has never believed in love and won't let anything get in the way of completing a mission…but all of that changes the night he meets Bella.
Isabella Moretti is a famous chef struggling to reclaim her life after barely surviving a vicious attack. Moving back to Chicago, Bella hopes to recover and regain the sense of safety that has been stolen from her. When she meets Jason, she's frightened by the passion he ignites within her…yet nothing makes her feel safer than being in his arms.
When her life is threatened, Jason will do whatever it takes to keep her safe and end the threat to her for good. As the pressure builds, Bella is forced to trust him with her safety, but does she dare trust him with her heart?

Under Pressure by Laurie Roma
I loved the story. It was definitely very inventive and kept my interest. The only complaint I have is that in places words were repeated, or were left out, and at times I felt like the sentence just wasn’t worded well. Sometimes it might have been punctuation that causes it to stutter. But as far as the storyline, it was great. I will be reading more of Laurie’s books, and hopefully can afford to finish reading the other books in the IAD series.
