Working for the FBI as an analyst turned out to be more than just a desk job when Angela McKenzie becomes a prime suspect for threats against national security. Now the very people she was working for are hunting, but so are some very dangerous terrorists bent on obtaining information that could paralyze the economy. The problem is that Angela has no idea what any of them want from her and it seems the only person she can trust is a handsome stranger with a great sense of timing. Investigating the circumstances surrounding her father's death soon takes a backseat as she begins running for her life to stay one step ahead of them all. However, the proof to her innocence rests much closer to home than she possibly could have imagined.

Chase Romero wasn't happy when his vacation was postponed by his boss, so Chase could babysit the boss's goddaughter. Going after terrorists in a foreign country? No problem. But trying to wrangle a fiery spirited woman from getting into deeper trouble will be his toughest mission yet and quite possibly the most life changing. As he struggles between his instincts and doing what he believes to be the right thing, Chase begins to wonder if there can be more to life than just being a good soldier.

Equal parts suspense, action, and romance make this one engaging thrill ride! And the best part is that it all starts on page one, so no time is wasted in making this a read you won't soon forget. The chemistry between Angela and Chase is off the charts amazing and I adored how possessive Chase becomes over the course of the story. The sex scenes aren't very graphic and leave just enough to the imagination with descriptions that set the tone without making it the focus of the story. The romance carries consistently and builds from the beginning with basic flirting between the pair, which makes it believable.

My only complaint would be the abrupt ending that had me wanting just a bit more to fully develop and close the scene. The rest of the story from the intense pacing to the intriguing plot is wonderfully put together with a purpose that doesn't leave unanswered questions at the end. The interesting secondary characters each deserve their own story and I really enjoyed the different dynamics and personalities they brought to the storyline.

I fully recommend this story to romantic suspense fans!
