TORN BETWEEN DUTY AND DESIRE
Covert operations expert Nash Brennon has spent the last eight years trying to forget Annie Gallagher, his former field partner and the only woman he ever loved. Annie betrayed him when he needed her most, then vanished without a trace. Now suddenly she’s back in the game – this time as a suspected traitor and threat to national security.
Annie’s son has been kidnapped by political terrorists. The price for his life? Assassinate a UN ambassador. When Nash and his group find her, the smoldering passion between Annie and the man she swore she’d never contact again blazes out of control. But can Nash trust her? The stakes couldn’t be higher: Their enemy’s endgame is personal, and one false move could cost them their lives.
Review: This was a pretty standard military/spec ops story with all the expected shootouts and tight situations that our characters narrowly manage to get out of. There were several parts where the scenarios stretch the believability barrier a bit too far.
The romantic part of the story was also pretty standard. Nothing all that unexpected going on there either. I wasn’t a huge fan of the back and forth with the love them, can’t trust them stuff. It got old after the first couple of times.
There wasn’t a cliffhanger for the main part of the story, but there were sub-plots that were left open and I’d like to read the next book to see if those get addressed. In all, this was a decent, entertaining read, but nothing all that special or different from other stories of a similar type.
