Story Overview:
"Keep the asset safe or die trying."

When a simple mission to deliver the beautiful and brilliant Vanessa Crosby to a safe house goes horribly wrong, ICE agent Diego Santero's life gets complicated. Keeping the anti-crime analyst safe from the notorious mercenaries after her program will put everything he's worked for at risk.

Relentlessly hunted and not knowing whom to trust, Diego takes Vanessa on the run, deep into the heart of the deadly Panamanian rain forest. Vanessa reminds herself that she's just another asset to the ruggedly handsome black ops agent…until their intense situation leads to a release of passion neither expected. But even if they make it out alive, how can they ever have a future together?

My Review:
Wow, Melissa Cutler can write Romantic Suspense!! Almost from page one, this book is rocking and rolling. Vanessa is a mathematician who works for a bank in  Panama. For fun and kicks, she writes algorithms in her spare time to help her job. She's just discovered one that uncovers some of the underbelly of Central America....the kind that comes with selling of nuclear submarines. Suddenly everyone is interested in her...mostly to kill her and bury her algorithm.

Diego and his team (4 other members) have been told to go and escort Vanessa to the US government offices so they can talk to her. To Diego and his team, a highly competent black-ops team, this assignment is a joke. They're glorified chauffeurs and not happy about it, but then everything about picking her up goes bad and Diego and Vanessa end up on the run alone.

Like I said, this book is non-stop action and suspense. My heart was rocketing as I read through some of the scenes. In the midst of it all though is the incredible dialogue and chemistry between Diego and Vanessa. Honestly when I wasn't on the verge of a heart attack, I was laughing out loud with the humor and fun between the two characters. I loved them and their rapport. Diego is awesome....a typical alpha hero, but Vanessa quickly sees his soft underbelly and heart. She's really smart and observant....and tough. They are trekking through the Panamanian jungle and she holds her own. There were moments of such sweetness...when Vanessa would sleep with her head on his lap, my heart would just melt. Every. single. time!

Truly, I am in awe of Melissa's writing skills. Every layer of this book was incredible! She's definitely shooting up there to become one of my auto-buy authors because I've only read two books of her's and they've both been amazing!

Actually I truly loved everything about this book. Diego and his team are part of ICE (Immigration and Customs). I loved the team and can't wait to see where Melissa takes them from here because things were definitely shaken up by this book. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
