Shadow Ops Agent Thais Sinclair lives for the job. All she knows or cares about is her team and the next job. Love is something she extracted from her live for the sake of being the best agent and completing her work effectively and effectively. Nothing good ever came from it, so like a thorn in her side she removed it and left it dead in the past. Dunn Bateson is a true enigma to Thais and her team, and yet they need him and his resources for one all-important mission. When the reason for his help is revealed to him, Dunn can’t say no which only makes him more uncomfortable. There are good reasons he is known as a recluse, but Thais threatens to burn them all to the ground. She can’t divert her attention away from the tasks assigned to her, and yet she can’t deny the pull to Dunn. Will Dunn extract himself from this mission unscathed, or will the strength, beauty, and intelligence he sees in Thais bring his life and walls tumbling down around his ears?
I don’t think that anything can be done when two people are both unwillingly drawn and equally repelled by the other. Nature will take its course, but it will draw all secrets and buried emotions to the foreground. No one can hide when love will not be denied no matter how adamant or determined they might be. The heart knows what it wants, and it will fight dirty to get it. When life is determined to change despite what you want, you can either willingly give in or watch as everything you know is systematically transformed before your very eyes.
This is the first book by Dawn Ryder that I have read, and I am completely at her mercy. Her storyline was gripping and captivating while her stunning characters stole my heart and never let it go. I was completely and utterly lost to this world of secrets and shadows. This is a breath taking masterpiece that will live in my heart forever.
Thais and Dunn are the focal point couple in this book. They do have some hot chemistry and some pretty good sex scenes. I liked them together; I could feel the depth of passion they feel for each other. Dunn was great; I liked how protective he was of Thais. I liked that he called out her "team" for using Thais. The whole using sexual means to gain things is just sad. Thais acts strong on the outside, but she's a sad mess on the inside. Her so-called "team" doesn't really act like a true team that is there for each other. I like her, but I didn't like how childish she was at times. I was hoping she'd kick more butt in this book.
Overall, a sweet, sexy romance with some good action, but I don't connect with the writing style; too jumbled.
Thais Sinclair is a Shadow Ops agent but she’s perfectly happy working alone on her designated missions. She has a load of personal and professional baggage that keeps her back to the wall and all senses on alert. When she falls on the sword and finds herself in the interrogation room at Homeland Security, she’s perfectly willing to lose her life or quality of life for her mission. To put it bluntly, she’s a loose cannon with little regard for her personal happiness. She’s the job and that’s all she ever wants to be.
Dunn Bateson doesn’t need any help in completing his personal mission to protect his mother. However, he’s been saddled with Thais and he’s a little more intrigued by her than he wants to admit. Former MI6, he’s perfectly capable of wielding guns and he’s conveniently wealthy enough to have serious connections needed to keep his mother, a congressional hopeful, from the crosshairs of a hitman. But with Thais wasting away at Homeland, maybe he can accomplish two things: save his mother and prove to Thais that she is worth saving, too.
I definitely think reading the previous books in the series is almost mandatory. I don’t think this book can be read as a stand-alone. There was a lot of character development in previous books and some need-to-know information the reader should have before taking in Dunn and Thais.
That being said, I LOVED Thais. At times, I wanted to shake her silly because she was a little too independent. Resting on her laurels in a heated room at Homeland was no picnic because she spent way too much time inside her own head. However, she was a badass professional agent when the action kicked in for her rescue, attempted re-kidnapping, attempted murder, etc. There was plenty of action and suspense to keep this book interesting.
Now for Dunn, I wanted his happily-ever-after and I finally got it. He was more intrigued by Thais at first. The more time he spent with her, the more that intrigue turned into blatant need for her. I want to say he made it easy for her, but with so much action going on around them, he didn’t take time to play any games. He wanted her and he focused on proving it to Thais.
