My Review:
There was one thing about this book that made this book an absolute winner to me...Avery, the heroine. OMG, she is such an awesome and likable character. She's normal...a girl with a bucket list full of secret fantasies. See, Avery's kink is secret agents. When she went to work as a secretary at ICE, it was her attempt to satisfy just a snippet of those fantasies. But you know....she's a secretary. There's not too much that's very exciting or adventurous about that until Agent Ryan calls for help on New Year's Eve...and suddenly Avery is living her fantasies and is surprisingly adept at this whole secret agent thing.

The entire book takes place over New Year's Eve and New Year's Day, but whoa those two days are FULL of sexy adventure and action. It never lets up and kept the pace of this book to where I couldn't stop reading. But even with all the adrenaline fueled action, the book is totally fun. Avery is smart and creative and is so different from anything Ryan ever imagined. I loved how much she surprised him and how much he admires her audacity and spunk. She's a natural at this secret agent thing and infuses him with a much-needed breath of fresh air. He's been living this high stress life for so long, he's feeling a bit drained and just tired of it all. She helps to excite him about what they are doing. 

It really was just a great book. I was completely shocked when the secret was revealed about exactly why Ryan is so determined to nail this bad guy. I NEVER saw that coming and it was a great twist. I loved how excited Avery got about the guns and the gadgets...seriously, this is this girl's kink and it was so fun to watch her reactions. One of the best things was Ryan began to introduce her to things knowing it was going to get her engine revved....awesome and sexy fun. For someone who grew up, like Avery, with James Bond and Bourne, I loved this book and her enthusiasm for all things spy-centric. 

A GREAT read. I highly recommend!!

I received this book as a gift from the author.

There is nothing sexier than a sexy secret agent type man.
The intense, brooding, troubled eyes, the way you want to comfort him because you know his secret missions have been hard on him. lolz
This book sounds fabulous.
