Diego Santero is an ICE black ops agent. After a tragic incident in his life, he has devoted himself to the endless fight of making the world a better place. When he and his team is assigned to chauffeur Vanessa to a safe house, he's more than upset because this isn't something black ops do. Of course he never expected the turn the assignment and his life will take.
Although there were background information referring to the hero/ine, their character development remained shallow. I couldn't relate to the reasons why Vanessa suffered from abandonment issues, especially because these reasons were ridiculous -- in my opinion that is. Neither did I consider Vanessa's "transformation" as satisfactory.
Diego seemed a more likeable character but again, the insufficient character development didn't support him properly.
Generally, the book left the impression of sketchy work. I.e. at some point Diego advised Vanessa to keep going shouldn't he be able to follow her and to reach the safe house alone, where she would find a satellite phone with which she could call the team. So far so good. Of course Diego pulls through and they reach the safe house together. BUT there's a comination lock in the door, which wasn't mentioned before. How would Vanessa have gotten the satellite phone?
In any case, not a bad choice for some easy escape reading -- but nothing more.
Oh my gosh... I don't really know where to start with this book. I fell in love with Diego even before reading this book. So imagine my surprise when the book was actually able to back up the hype and then some. TEMPTED INTO DANGER is intense, captivating, and steamy. It had my attention from the very beginning and left me wanting more. I literally devoured the book in a 24-hour period.
Vanessa Crosby is an American that lives and works in Panama. She's uber smart and works for RioBank as a senior analyst in the criminal detection department. Vanessa, in her spare time, has created an algorithm that can track the movement of bulk cash using small deposits and wire transfers. This program puts Vanessa in the crosshairs of the Chiara brothers, Italian mercenaries who run a big business of being brokers for criminal activity.
ICE agent Diego Santero is one of the best heroes I've ever read. I have a major thing for an alpha hero who packs guns and knows how to use them. New Jersey native Diego is a cocky and confident soldier through and through. Diego (Devil) is the senior agent and team lead for one of ICE's best black ops teams. Diego's team consists of Ryan (Eight Ball), sniper Rory (Ghost Rider), sniper John (Thriller), and intelligence specialist Alicia (Phoenix).
The team's mission is simple, pick up Vanessa from her apartment and deliver her to a safe house where Diego's boss, ICE director Thomas Dreyer and Special Agent Aaron Montgomery will talk to and convince her to work with them. Something goes terribly wrong. Vanessa is kidnapped, the safe house has been compromised and not knowing who to trust, the team is forced to go their separate ways in order to regroup.Read more ›
In Tempted Into Danger (ICE: Black Ops Defenders #1) by Melissa Cutler, RioBank anti-crime analyst Vanessa Crosby didn't realize when she created an algorithm to track cash flow in her spare time that it would put her life into danger. But that's exactly what happened when her boss found out what her mathematical mind created. It seems there is a connection with the bank and the Chiara brothers - a group of three brothers who are heavy hitters in the world of international crime. Now Vanessa's boss is demanding she hand over the algorithm, although she doesn't trust his motives. She decides she needs to investigate what she's found a bit further before handing over the information. Before she gets a chance to do so, she's attacked in her apartment and becomes part of a hostage situation, only to be saved by one of the most fearless men she's ever met.
"She was about to go off the grid with a man she'd just met, without anyone knowing where she'd be. She'd made up her mind to trust Diego implicitly, but that trust was being put to the test sooner than she would've liked."
Diego and his crew saved her life at the risk of their own. Vanessa knows she is indebted to them but is still scared as to who she can trust. She's never really had anyone in her life she could count on except herself and her best friend Jordan, so trusting that they won't leave her to fend for herself is a hard thing to do. When they come under attack again as Diego has them in sight of the safe house his superiors set up, they have to resort to his plan zero and end up in his hideout in the Panama jungle. Nothing can ever seem to go as planned for them unfortunately as they meet trouble at every turn: from pit vipers to downpours, and from rebels to indigenous tribes.Read more ›
