Editorial Reviews


5 NYMPHS: "...Under Pressure is one story that I will be reading again." -- Amazon Nymph, Literary Nymphs Reviews

4.5 KISSES: "...Ms. Roma gave us a story in which both Bella and Jason were lost and found what they needed in each other. They were strong individuals who were willing to fight for love and respect. This is a wonderful new series by Ms. Roma. The men and women in this elite group look to be a great new collection of stories. They are all Alpha and I look forward to where Ms. Roma will take us." -- Tangie, TwoLips Reviews

4.5 DELIGHTFUL DIVAS: "...Under Pressure is a tantalizing story with complex, passionate characters who are genuine, crisp dialogue that's believable, fast-paced action that will keep your heart racing, and smoldering hot sex that will leave you panting breathlessly even after the story has come to end. I loved the men and women of IAD and can't wait to see what Ms. Roma has in store for them next. So, if you haven't picked up a copy of Under Pressure by Laurie Roma, then do so today." -- Diva AJ, Dark Divas Reviews

4.5 RAVENS: "... Under Pressure is the perfect title for a story that has a love that is on the brink of bursting. Ms. Roma writes erotic scenes that make you sit up and take notice. She has a knack for reaching the characters' inner emotions and pulling them to the center of her writing. Emotional characters and erotic suspense are definitely ingredients that when mixed together cause you to tingle to your toes. Under Pressure is an intriguing ride with new excitement in every chapter." -- Trixie, BlackRaven's Reviews

5.0 out of 5 stars Reviewed for Cocktails and Books August 25, 2013
Bella Moretti literally bumps into Jason MacBain at a charity auction and she instantly feels a strong sexual pull. Even though she is attracted to Jason, she thinks he is "arrogant ass" and doesn't hesitate to share her thoughts with him. Jason is used to women falling all over him, so he's confused by Bella's negative response.

Bella moved back to Chicago a few months ago. She has returned to her hometown to heal and be near her friends and family. She was one of New York's youngest executive chefs working for a chic prestigious hotel. Bella is a strong, intelligent woman used to dealing with her brothers who are overprotective and macho so she takes Jason protective behavior in stride.

It's easy to lose your heart to Jason, who tragically lost his family when he was fifteen. He has a British cultured accent and grew up in Edinburgh, Scotland in a wealthy family. Emotional entanglements don't appeal to him. Jason has spent his life protecting people, but giving little thought to his own safety. For the past five years he has run the Chicago IAD branch which is fronted through MAC Securities. IAD exists to wipe out terrorists. It is under the radar intelligence with no rules.

UNDER PRESSURE is an exhilarating book filled with romance, intrigue, spies and delightful secondary characters which include Bella's friends, her family and everyone who works for Mac Securities. This is a testosterone fueled story with lots of hot alpha males, who love nothing better than to trash talk as they banter back and forth. This is the first book in the IAD series and I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

This is probably the first book where I read the first book in a series that had no issues! Their was a lot thrown ; however it made sense! I liked that even though the heroine had been through heck it didn't stop her! Their was an hea! The book worked well with the other series! Normally I would say it didn't mater what order you read in a series; however reading this book first helps understand the concept of the series!

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVED IT!!!! May 7, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Oh my my where do I start???
Ok let's start with Isabella "Bella" Moretti world famous chef, beautiful, sassy, spunky full of life until a stalker changed life as she knew it.
Jason "Mac" MacBain IAD director, sinfully handsome, total alpha male. They literally bump into each other at a charity auction and sparks fly.

This is the first book of the IAD Agency series and it was AMAZING. The story just sucks you in and won't let go. You want to know what's next, you don't want to stop until you are finished. This book as it all action, suspense, love, humor (oh man the humor).
The sexual chemistry between Jason and Bella is just HOT, you can feel the love and passion they have for each other.
The rest of the crew (fellow agents) Finn, Bishop, Rock, Adrian, Slade, Lucian, Sal, Tony, Danny, Lynx, Shannon, Tara round out the rest of this awesome story. The banter between them all will make you just laugh out loud.
Simply put WONDERFULLY AWESOME!!!! You will not be disappointed at all with this read. Looking forward to next in the series. Ms. Laurie thank you for your gift for writing, your an amazing author. Keep 'um coming =D

5.0 out of 5 stars Intrigue and Passion February 15, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This very well written & constructed book has excitement and adventure in Spades!! Who doesn't love an Alpha male who is baffled by a vulnerable but strong lady in his life? The story develops at a good pace, has many funny lines especially from the other members of IAD who take delight in seeing their stern and dour leader fall despite all attempts to avoid love. The plot twists and turns are a treat that are believable in a make believe Spy world. All the secondary characters fit in with the story and make you love them enough to want to know their stories too. I am happy to recommend this Author and have honestly enjoyed all her work to date.

Raunchy, racy and very, very tasty - serve up some more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot Macho Spies August 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I loved this book!!!! It had it all a great story, spies, suspense and wonderful, funny characters. There are lots of entertaining secondary characters and many are hot alpha males, who love to trash talk. It has sizzling romance between Bella and Jason. I loved Jason, with his Scottish brogue. Oh my he is soooo hot. Great read!

Oh the wonderful things I could say about Jason!! I loved how protective and possessive he was. A sweet yet VERY alpha male. Bella had a kind but strong personality. She knew when to fight for her independence and when to let others protect her. Great love scenes. Well written.
