Goodreads synopsis: After being wounded in action, NSA agent Nathan Ortiz comes home to Miami, eager to return to duty. But he doesn't expect his newest mission to lead him straight to the one woman he loved, lost, and has never gotten over.
A beautiful, successful restaurateur, Amelia Rios enjoys giving back to her community, especially to struggling women. Then a woman she recently hired stops showing up for work, and, unfortunately, she isn’t the first to go missing.
Soon Amelia finds herself thrust into a shadowy, dark world, working side by side with Nathan, the only man she’s ever loved. They must confront old feelings as they battle a ruthless enemy preying on the poor and weak. The heat simmering between Nathan and Amelia could mean a second chance for them—but first they have to survive.
Nathan Ortiz has been working undercover with an alias for so long that he had forgotten how odd it would be for someone he knew from his old life to see him play acting as someone else. Of course, the one person he ran into isn't just anyone from his past. Ameila Rios is the one he could never forget, the one that haunted his dreams for years. Now she was smack dab in the middle of his current assignment. I found this book to be an easy read, was easy to get into and the text flowed well.
Every book I have read to this point by author Katie Reus has been excellent and of the highest quality. The characters are well-rounded, easy to follow and learn to love. I sometimes wish I could see some of them more often in other books. But I am appeased they will make cameo appearances in other Deadly Ops books in this wonderful series.
There was quite a bit of sizzle in the romantic scenes and if I am honest, maybe a bit too much at times, for my taste but that did not take away from the awesome-ness of the book. The rest was just the right mix of action and mystery. If you love a good spy book but want a bit more behind the scenes action concerning their lives, then this is for you. I will definitely be picking up the other books in this series right away.
I received this as an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) in return for an honest review. I thank the publisher, author and Net Galley for allowing me to read this title.
