I found Will sexy as hell. He's an operative on the edge: emotionally and physically, and the author does a great job of illustrating that with her word choices, and his actions. No "Telling" in this book; Ms. Black's descriptions, in words and deeds, paint vivid pictures of what's going on, in the book, and in the characters' heads.
Angel is wound tighter than a top in the hands of a toddler. She's ready to snap at the least provocation, and has been for years. Will becomes that provocation, and the moments when she lets herself go are memorable.
I enjoyed the dual pov. Ms. Black switches from female to male with no weakness, and I found myself laughing out loud at many of Will's internal comments. Great use of dialogue to move the story along. The sex scenes were hot, and descriptive. A little more than I'm used to, but not sleazy at all. They fit the characters perfectly. You may come away from them looking for a partner, or at least a heck of a lot of chocolate!
Oh, and pay careful attention throughout the book; the clues are there for the supreme bad character, but I missed them, probably because I was fanning myself!
I liked this third outing in the series as much as the first one. It really shows a lot of style and knowledge, as well as writing growth. A truly enjoyable read that I recommend to anyone who is a fan of romantic suspense/spy thrillers.
This series takes place in England.
Will is a Black Operative who is still on recoup leave having failed his psych eval, his own doing because he refuses to co operate.
Angel Treherne is the Dr who is in charge of the Pysch Eval's among other things and also works for the government in this specialized group.
Will is called in to the acting Chiefs office given an assignment but the very dirty and underhanded chief. Seduce Dr Treherne and find out where her brother is. Her brother is a scientist (chemist) who has been working for the government developing a new drug, which was first said to be a flu vaccine, which morphed into another description... you get the picture. Even the guys in Black Ops don't know what he was working on. Rhys her brother ghosted a couple months ago with a thumb drive that the gov't wants their hands on. Badly.
Angel and Will already know each other as Dr and patient. Neither give an inch. And especially now since he's flipped his demeanor and trying to seduce her. Even he thinks she's protecting him.
This is one hell of a book and I did not put it down. There are so many twists and turns, there's some steam going on here, but suspense and mystery override that. Trust me, you won't miss the sex. The characters are more than enough to keep you glued to the pages. This book help my attention, captively. Some books just don't. You can read, but kind of skim along because it's the same sort of trope and you're not going to miss much. Not so with this gem. You have to stay in the game here and Incy keeps you engaged, totally. There were moments here that were honest to goodness breath holders. You couldn't tell what was going to happen at all. So many questions, oddities and plain old what the hell was that?
I can't recommend this book highly enough. It was a great read and one I'd read again. I liked the relationship between Will and Angel. Even when I didn't like him. :) She's so snarky to his dickishness that it's perfection. I loved it. Can't say it enough.
I'd love to see more from Ms Black!!! This book was aces.
Read this book!!
