When Caleb Smith saved Francesca Hamilton from a nasty situation with her father, she was beyond grateful. Sure, it landed her in Caleb's bed wearing his engagement ring, but neither of them took that seriously. It was a means to an end, and he was so sexy and exciting, she was enjoying the ride. It wasn’t Caleb's fault her feelings were changing, leaving her wishing things between them were real rather than pretend.
Caleb took the FBI’s assignment because he wanted to end the tyranny of a man who’d hurt the people he loved. Odds of success were slim and the danger high, but he knew the risks. Francesca didn't and was completely in the dark about her family’s "business." And the more time he spends with her, the harder he falls for the gorgeous blonde. But to finally get retribution, he'll have to destroy her world...

4 I Spy Stars!
I love taking a chance on a new author and being pleasantly surprised. I really enjoyed this story. You've got a spy, a criminal, a good guy who's bad, all rolled into one as our sexy Hero. He's set on bringing down the mastermind to an extortion ring and is unprepared to find a sweet and innocent women in the middle of it all.
It starts out rocky. You can't help but be angry on Francesca's behalf. She's thrown against Caleb, not by choice, but she's been intrigued by him since the beginning. She knows they have to fake it for a main goal that don't match the other and you see them both struggling to keep it real. As much as I want to be angry at Caleb, I can't be. He's good to and for Francesca despite his end goal of walking away.
I loved watching this play out and I liked that it wasn't predictable. Great read and I look forward to more from this author. ARC provided by NetGalley.
This was a pretty good read for me although I do think I would have enjoyed it even more if I had read the prior books in the series. The writing is excellent, the characters are well done and likeable for the most part. There is a steamy romance between Caleb and Francesca with a bit of mystery and suspense thrown. The story takes lots of twists and turns which keep you on the edge of your seat. Definitely one I will be recommending.
