Them can do anything officially they must depend on friends to make it happen I loved seeing characters from previous books show up to help Of course the plan doesn t go uite as expected and things get pretty intense for awhile The resolution didn t go uite as I expected and there are a few threads left hanging I hope to see them tied up in the next bookI enjoyed the romance between Nick and McKenna Because they had nown each other before it didn t feel as if it happened too uickly I liked the few flashbacks that were included as they gave a good sense of how they got to The Future of Academic Freedom know each other There had obviously been an attraction and a connection back then but because of their jobs they weren t able to do anything about it The attraction they had then is still there and is getting harder to resist I also loved how their longstanding friendship showed in things like their Brit vshillbilly teasing It wasn t until the end when they were afraid of losing each other that they could finally admit their feelings This is an exciting story with compelling characters and a roller coaster plot McKenna and Nick are both wary of attachments but strongly attracted to each other They also have a past trauma in common that binds them almost as strongly as that attraction The author does a beautiful job of making the reader care about the characters I was totally invested in finding out the identity of the traitor in the FBI The ending was thrilling and satisfying I definitely recommend this book to fans of romantic suspenseMauraReviewer for Coffee Time Romance MoreOfficial Review Coffee Time Romance More A read that has you wanting to go and help them track down the bad guys andeep the girls safe I don t think even author Paula Graves Agricultural Machinery Mechanization knew what she was writing here There s no plot It s all talk and no action Truly terribleMcKenna Rigsby shows up at Nick Darcy s cabin with two bullet wounds They have a history from eight years ago in the middle east and he s the only man she trusts She s now an FBI agent while he s some secret agent with a private organisation currently on administrative leave because he s suspected of leaking information that put another agent in danger McKenna had recently been undercover as a groupie with an anti government group called Blue Ridge Infantry trying to get info on their next big attack Then she gets a call to be extracted but winds up shot instead She now needs Nick s help to stay safe and hidden and find out which mole in the FBI blew her cover and tried to get herilledI thinkAbout 80% of this actually just McKenna and Nick hanging out in his cabin or friends cabins They talk talk talk talk They go to one cabin They go to another cabin McKenna insists she s fine Nick insists she isn t Nick treats her wounds Then they talk some We learn the characters and plots of seemingly every other Intrigue book Paula Graves ever wrote The plot for this one It doesn t matter obviously We don t even find out what the Blue Ridge Infantry had planned A whole bunch of ancillary characters are introduced late in the proceedings as we rush into a lame half assed recon mission that is resolved all too easily PatheticNo sex No violence No thrills No action No plot I m not sure it s the worst Intrigue title I ve read though it has to be close but it sure isn t romantic interesting exciting or fun Skip it.
