With both their lives on the line, their lackluster connection is suddenly replaced by an intense one. But in his line of work, feelings aren’t wanted or desired. Because feelings can be a lethal distraction.
I have enjoyed all of Kylie’s books so far. She was able to keep me guessing and had me needing to find out who was behind everything. I did like the banter and humor she was able to pack into this book.
Betty is fed up with her boring lonesome life with her husband. He is not spontaneous and has to leave her to for his job. She had decided to make a change and leave Thom. However, the day she decides to leave is the day her world is turned upside down. Not everything is as it seams you can never believe what your eyes see or what you think you know. This is the day Betty finds out her life with Thom has been nothing but lies.
Thom needed a cover and being a normal average joe with a fiancé was the perfect cover. He never dreamed that by having Betty as his cover life would put her life in danger. But now he finds himself on the run with Betty trying to figure out who is trying to kill them. Now that Betty knows the truth Thom is determined to make Betty see even if their relationship was based on a lie what he feels for her is real.
I have to say this was a good suspense romance. I so wanted to know who the person was behind everything and why they were doing this. This had violence, action and suspense but it also had humor. Betty cracked me up with some of her thoughts and how she would sort through everything that was happening around her. The twist and turns kept all of them on their toes even me. This was entertaining and as I read this story it was like a movie unfolding.
