Because I wanted to get something up today and start the giveaway, I'm going to do a quick mini-review. I haven't finished the book yet. As most of you know, my reading has kind of fizzled since the death of my grandmother, but the mojo is coming back and I think Dark Deceptions is really bringing it back.
From the beginning of this book you are sucked in - the prologue is pretty hot and gives you a feel for Nash and Annie in the past when they were running ops and running from the bad guys together. But something happened that tore them apart. Annie had to get out and Nash thinks she left him for dead and turned on him. But as we readers know, things are not all that they seem.
You jump right into the characters of this book and I have enjoyed getting to know the various members of A-Tac and their unusual setup (a group of college professors) as this story is being setup. I can tell I will enjoy this book and look forward to finishing it today or tomorrow. I have read Dee Davis in the past and enjoyed her. She has great romantic suspense, but from what I have read so far, she has definitely taken it up a notch in Dark Deceptions.
About the Book:
A-Tac is an elite CIA unit masquerading as faculty at an Ivy League college. Brilliant, badass, and seemingly bulletproof, the members of A-Tac are assigned to the riskiest missions and the most elusive targets.
TORN BETWEEN DUTY AND DESIRE
Covert operations expert Nash Brennon has spent the last eight years trying to forget Annie Gallagher, his former field partner and the only woman he ever loved. Annie betrayed him when he needed her most, then vanished without a trace. Now suddenly she's back in the game - this time as a suspected traitor and threat to national security.
Annie's son has been kidnapped by political terrorists. The price for his life? Assassinate a UN ambassador. When Nash and his group find her, the smoldering passion between Annie and the man she swore she'd never contact again blazes out of control. But can Nash trust her? The stakes couldn?t be higher: Their enemy's endgame is personal, and one false move could cost them their lives.
