description~WRITING - PLOT - PACE~
So color me impressed because this book was all kinds of fantastic. It probably would have been a 5-Star book if it hadn't been SO long. My interest started to wane at about 60% in. That said, I kept plugging on and it started to pick up again around 80%. The writing was fantastic though. The pace was a bit up and down. I am chalking that up to it being a bit too long. I think the author could have tightened up the story a bit. The plot was super engaging and probably

Well I wrote it so yeah I think it deserves 5 would be quite concerning if I gave it anything less.
3 Stars!

So many times I wanted to Dnf this book, mainly at the beginning. There was a good amount of wrong with everything. The characters are supposed to be super smart, but they aren't really, especially the heroine who had suspicions about who the mole turned out to be, but literally only investigated everyone but him. Literally like every character was super cocky talking or thinking about themselves, not confident, just annoyingly cocky, including the heroine. Their thoughts were also super

Sexy, suspenseful and full of surprises

If there is a line for a new book by this author you know I will be in it! This military suspense romance was a departure from her previous books but included all the drama, humour and sexiness I craved If you are a lover of hot military men, a windy who-dun-it and scorching romance then you have found the right place!

Lucia is all about the career, focused from a young age, knowing that the CIA was the brass ring. This assignment was the one. The one that

Her stateside mission is to go undercover to uncover a mole within the S.E.A.L.S., water mammals. She will be working alongside a previous obsessed one night stand and his best friend.

I think I'm in a bit of a book slump as nothing much is exciting me right now. I liked this book but I didn't love it. The characters had insta lust and were touching each other within the first hour they met. I liked both the h and the H and generally didn't have any issue with either. The h had a pretty strong character and the H wasn't an a-hole type which was a bit refreshing. The mystery of the mole was not a mystery, the author pretty much gave it away as soon as the character was ...more

This book, is honestly not really what I was expecting. Though I'm not really sure what I was expecting. I loved all of the undercover buisness. And how she just got right in there and it was just one of her things to figure all these people out. And it really didn't take her long at all for what she needed to do. She is so good at what she does, but really you are kind of kept guessing at what it is that she really is doing.
The writing in this book is honestly just wonderful and for how

Special gifts can make you valuable. But when there are people who would use those abilities for their own gain with little thought to the holder of that gift it should become clear that there needs to be a change. Except things aren't always that simple. Lucia is unique, fierce, and committed. She's also very tired. When her next assignment is received it dangles the possible rewards that would mean the promotion she has worked so hard for, a little breather from her constant travels, and the ...more

This is a wonderfully written book with an exciting storyline that would have you turning page after page to see what happens next and just who the bad guy is. I had a little problem with the story dragging a bit in places, but overall it was a great read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I loved that the female character was so strong and didn't really need to have a man protect her, even if the man was a hot as sin Navy Seal and he definitely wanted to protect her. But she is CIA after-all and she ...more

Lucia is a force to be reckoned with and can certainly handle herself, some say she can read minds and this makes her an asset while working for the CIA . She has been on many of missions and never mixes business with pleasure. The latest mission could get her right to the top with a promised promotion if she succeeds in catching the mole that is working for the seals, information is being leaked and putting lives at risk, her other mission is to convince Gabe to leave the seals and join the ...more

Covert Affair has danger and romance around every corner. Not sure how they made it so jam packed with mystery and romance, but it worked so well together. One moment I'm stumped trying to figure out what these SEALS are hiding and the next I'd get lovey heart eyes when Gabe enters the room. Lucia is the "mind reader" of the CIA. She reads people so well and loved her job. Her next mission is to find a mole in a Navy SEALS group. Between a bitter ex, steaming chemistry, and working out who is a ...more

CIA Agent Lucia Rizzo is so bada$s!!! She is driven to succeed in everything she does. The next step in her career is a big promotion, and the only thing in her way is one last mission as a field agent. She needs to find a mole whos selling info on a SEAL team, as well as recruit the leader of another SEAL team.

I love a good military story from time to time and this one did not disappoint! The story flowed nicely and pulled me in immediately!

Lucia is a strong, independent woman working for the CIA with unique and special gifts; which means she can take care of herself. Shes sent into a SEAL platoon to find out who is ambushing missions. Gabe, the hot, overprotective SEAL cant deny or shut down his attraction to this woman that was sent to help find the traitor.

Wow!! This book was fantastic! I dont always love books about the CIA or about SEALS, but this one exceeded my expectations. Lucia is a CIA agent who has been tasked with finding a mole within a SEAL team. Their missions have been sabotaged and Gabe is the SEAL who has been assigned to help her.

Lucia is badass!! She is strong, independent and can defend herself against almost any situation. Shes also smart and is called a witch because she can read people so well. She is woman; hear her roar!

This was a great mystery/romance that had me gripped from the moment the book began to the last page.

I loved Lucias character as she was tough and ready to do whatever she could to succeed in her mission and discover who the mole is. I love that she narrowed it down and then dug deeper to see what certain SEALS were hiding. I loved the varying degrees of what the men were hiding and there were quite a few big surprises.

Gabe was awesome and I loved how bossy he could be in certain instances! He

Very enjoyable book. Its well written with characters that are strong and very well defined. I love characters that are self reliant yet willing to give a Little too. Here we have a strong denial lead who is CIA and used to handling her own life/problems and a Navy Seal who is very not the Alpha and wants to protect our heroine even if she doesnt necessarily want him too.

The storyline is very engaging. It will keep you on edge and have you turning page after page to see what happens next. While

Fastpaced, action-packed, suspenseful, and da#n sexy!

I always like that moment at the beginning of a book where you know one will fall, but who will it be? And how?

Lucia and Gabe are having a hard time keeping their hands off each other from the first minute, but then Gabe gets called out. He's gone for a few days, and when he gets back she's got questions he can't answer.

It's the CIA vs the SEALS, the dream team of lies and secrets, who will win, and what does winning look like? Gabe's not

Wow! Wow! Wow! This book has it all, and Kennedy L Mitchell has done it again! Romance. Intrigue. Suspense. Humor. S-E-X. As if that isnt enough, A Covert Affair is full of the witty banter and texting that shes becoming known for.

Now this one was more than up my alley in what I love to read. This author took my temptations to the extreme adding a touch of mystic with it in Lucia's abilities. But then it is also a would seem second chance which I seem to read a few lately. The one she needs on her side is finding a mole but she also crosses paths with Gabe. Steam does rise when then come in contact but oh just one part of this one. Danger and questions run in this one with Seals a plenty. The suspense will raise its own ...more

A Covert Affair is my first book by this author, and I loved it! What a journey! A mysterious romance book, where everyone is a suspect. Which will have you second-guessing everyone and everything throughout the book!

I thought it was well written, and had great developed characters. Lucia and Gabe is perfect for each other! Filled with steamy chemistry, witty bantering and intrigue!

Highly recommend this book if you're looking for some badass woman and a hot alpha man!

Kennedy L Mitchell has done it again and kept me riveted to the pages of this romantic suspense! It is everything I love in this genre - a witty and smart hero and heroine, a unique and fast-paced storyline and chemistry and steam that is undeniable!

I fell hard for the alpha Navy SEAL and his protective/possessive nature, and loved the sassy and smart heroine, Lucia, from the CIA. The twists and turns kept me guessing, and their relationship was one I cheered for from beginning to end!

Well done
