Dani had not had an easy life. Wanting to turn her life around, she was happy when she got a job at E.D.G.E. in IT as an expert hacker so she could do something good that she could be proud of. And be away from the Russian mob.
Jake was given a trial assignment that he was told would be simple. It wasn't so simple with the target being the Russian mob. Since Dani spoke Russian she was a great asset to the mission. When Dani's best friend was kidnapped, she was determined to find her. After using her hacking skills, she was sure the Russian mob was behind it and knew just who to go to in order to get her friend back. But by doing this, Dani ended up compromising Jake's mission and alerting the ones she was hiding from, that she was still alive.
Trish Loye is a very illustrative writer making it easy to picture the events taking place. This book is a great read and definitely captures the reader in the story line, but that wouldn't work if she didn't have good characters. Jake and Dani are such strong individuals stuck in a situation that will take all their skills to get out of, that I couldn't read fast enough to find out how they handled it.
This is the type of book where you'll want to clear some time and just sit and read it. You won't want to put it down. But be warned, it's like riding a roller coaster of emotions.
Navy SEAL Jake ‘College’ Harrison was injured during his last mission and it's questionable if he will return to his team. He has accepted an offer from E.D.G.E. Security to participate in a mission in order to see if he wants to join this security company. Jake is intrigued by the new computer tech and immediately sees behind Danielle's “disguise" but what will he find below all the layers?
The book started with a bang but unfortunately couldn't uphold the suspense. I would've liked to read more about the main activities of the Russians and believe that this would've added more depth to the plot. Both main characters were likable, although I had my troubles with his imposing manners and her ambitions, which seemed at times to outsize any other aspects in her life. The romance between Jake and Danielle was just ok - no sizzling or overly hot moments.
Not a bad book but also nothing outstanding.
A character at the EDGE Security company challenges her to hack in, leaves her to it, then later charges in with guns blazing because a security alarm went off!? What, there's no surveillance in the room!? They didn't know she was still working in there?
She doesn't advertise her looks, (wears baggy clothes and no make-up), which is fine. But she trains regularly at a nearby MMA gym frequented by co-workers. She makes an impression on our hero who sees her fighting in shorts and a sports bra. Way to stay under the radar!
Her best friend works at the Canadian equivalent of the DA's office and the morning after a hot date with a mysterious/possibly dangerous Russian, our heroine is so concerned that she goes to her friend's apartment and finds the front door unlocked. Plus, her friend hasn't made it in to work, but she doesn't try to track her friend's cell phone? She just leaves her voicemail messages! And the fact that no one from her friend's prosecutor's office thinks the worst when she doesn't show up really annoyed me.
That's when I was done.
Some of the minor characters don't make sense...need a bit more fleshing out as the reader fells like they've missed a chapter or something. There is a rush at the end and it almost feels like the author got to her designated word count and then just wrapped it all up quickly.
I kind of feel like I was left dangling. Perhaps there is more info on these characters in the filled w books in the series but it feels unfinished to me. Hence the four stars.
