Dodging bullets comes naturally for these two. The real danger is the heat that smolders between them…
Still licking her wounds from a painful divorce, former covert operative Essie Jackson is adjusting to civilian life after a decade spent lurking in the shadows to keep America safe. She's got a new job, a new home, a new life, and yet she can't stop thinking about the only man she ever loved. But when a favor for her old mentor turns deadly, leaving Essie wounded and hunted, she's forced to turn to the one man she has desperately tried to forget.
Army veteran Russell Jackson never should have signed those damn divorce papers. He's never gotten over the sexy spy, and when she comes to him for help, Jackson vows to do whatever it takes to keep her safe—and reclaim her heart.
Now they're confronting old feelings as they work together to stop an elite team of assassins from murdering their innocent target. The heat smoldering between them could mean a second chance, but first they have to survive.
Please note: when the clothes come off, the bedroom door stays open. Also, characters use profanity, because sometimes, "gosh darn it, you big meany-head" just doesn't cut it.

This review is of Deadly Deceptions, book 6 in Lori Sjoberg’s Six Points Security series. I received an advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This book in the series was a little different than the first five books. They were all told about one of the Flint brothers who own and run Six Points Security. This book is about one of the men they have “adopted” into the family, Russell Jackson. Kind of. It’s really more about Essie, his ex-wife. Well, it’s told through her point of view more than Jackson’s. And her point of view is fascinating because, yes, she is a woman fighting in a man’s world. She had worked covert ops for the United States government where you did what needed to be done to keep America safe. But she left that world behind and was a civilian. And that’s where this book shines. How does Essie reconcile her different lives and the people who are in them? Will she learn to trust, to share, to know when it’s okay to ask for help? And how will the people around her react to her?
Sorry, but you’re going to have to read it to find the answers! This book has everything: stabbing, shot outs, car chases, a few things I won’t spoil by mentioning, and of course romance.
This was one of my favorite reads and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! You don’t need to read the other books in the series, but after reading this one, why wouldn’t you?
