After spending years in prison under deep cover, black ops agent Tucker Flynn joins A-Tac, an elite CIA unit masquerading as faculty at an Ivy League college. Nothing can shake him-except a vulnerable young woman marked for death.

DUAL DECEPTION

When Tucker is assigned to protect-and secretly investigate-Alexis Markham, he expects a routine mission. But this mysterious beauty has a past even darker than his: her father created a horrifying new biochemical weapon-and was murdered to keep it secret.

Alexis has spent the last decade racing to stay one step ahead of the shadowy operatives who will stop at nothing to possess her father's formula. She can trust no one, not even her handsome new bodyguard. But the heat that flares between them is impossible to resist. Will giving in to passion bring her the safety she's always craved, or will her love for Tucker draw him into a killer's sights?

REVIEW:


From a sleepy little town in California to the plains of West Texas to a bank in New Orleans to a cabin near South Fork to an office of a man bent on finding the formula for aerosolizing biotoxins in Montreal to a liberal arts college that is a front for A-Tac in New York, I was taken through a dangerous high octane adventure of flying bullets at every turn, buildings getting blown up worthy of a Michael Bay production, betrayal, attraction, adrenaline pumping action, twist and turns you don't see coming. Good grief! I couldn't put this book down.  

Alexis Markham has been on the run since the night her whole family died in an explosion due to her father's involvement with creating something that could tip the scales in chemical warfare. She should have died in that explosion but due to her sneaking out to go to a game instead of the library, she survives. Her father's friend George takes her away and gives her a new identity so everyone will think she also died that night.

Tucker Flynn, presumed dead in Colombia when an undercover operation went awry, is rescued by his brother. Betrayed by his fellow operative and losing the love of his life to the hands of his traitorous operative, he's a scarred and closed off man.

From the moment Tucker sees Alexis walking into the cafe where he's having his customary cup of coffee and caramel roll, he's intrigued. He observes the her and her older friend talking, laughing and having an argument. Alexis storms out and the booth she was previously sitting in with George gets blown up. Tucker realizes that something is off. He throws himself into the investigation, going as far as introducing himself to Alexis as an old friend of George.

With the help of A-Tac, Tucker's back story regarding his history with George is implanted into the system in case someone goes snooping to confirm it. Alexis asks a friend to look Tucker up and confirm who he is. At first, she's leery of why he's helping her but the attraction between them starts to grow. Thrown into the mix is resident computer hacking guru Harrison. He helps with Alexis and Tucker's flight from the unknown bomber as they race against time to prove that neither George or Alexis are trying to selling the formula to the highest bidder. Alexis becomes suspicious as Tucker and Harrison are able to obtain get away vehicles, top secret information and anything else to help them get away from the men trailing them.

Alexis's past resurfaces and her world come crashing down. Everything and everyone she has known aren't who they seem and the worst betrayal doesn't come from Tucker (who she realizes is with the government and not a friend of George's from prison) but from her own family.

Alexis goes from not trusting anyone and running, always looking behind her to finding a group of people who automatically accept her as one of their own. At least the ladies of A-Tac do. Tucker can't believe this woman has gotten under his skin. He's willing to stick with her come hell or fire power. As the stakes get higher, the chemistry gets hotter and a jaw dropping secret is revealed, Tucker and Alexis must put aside their doubts, stand together and find their happily ever after. All while trying to stay one step ahead of 2 factions wanting a go at the formula for aerosolizing biotoxins and dodging gun toting hired muscle.

FAVORITE QUOTE:
"Alexis felt as if she'd been dropped into some kind of fractured fairy tale where the evil king captures the prince and demands the princess give him up in order that he could live."
OVERALL: Um, Dee Davis, where have you been all 6 months of my romantic suspense reading life? Heart pounding action, cinematic worthy explosions, car chase scenes that Michael Bay would be proud of, betrayal, danger, a sizzling attraction that even flying bullets and bombs can't deter. Now this dear readers is how you get the blood pumping and the page turning faster and faster. From the first page until the last, I couldn't get enough. This was a series I jumped into and boy howdy! I'm going to have to pick up the first book for some back story.
