My Review:

Overall thought:  While I found my thoughts wandering from time-to-time, I still found Deep Disclosure to be a very satisfying read and a true reminder of why I find romantic suspense to be one of my favorite genres.

My thoughts:  From page one Ms. Davis draws the reader in with action and just when things begin to lull there is a well placed action-scene.  She is a master at this.  I enjoyed Deep Disclosure and getting to know Alexis and Tucker and seeing members of the A-TAC team.  You don't need to read the earlier books in this series to understand this book (I haven't) but I am sure you will find enjoyment if you have read the books as the previous couples are in this book from time-to-time.

Alexis and her backstory were the most interesting to me.  The fact that she has been off the grid her entire life was fascinating.  Her instant attraction to Tucker was great also.  I love those kind of attractions and I really felt the attraction and heat between these two.  It didn't feel off, it really felt believable.  I also liked Tucker, who hasn't had an easy life either, and he's trying to decide what to do when the situation with Alexis falls into his lap.  He's pretty much decided he's going to be alone for life as well so I liked that he found his soul mate in Alexis.

Of course the relationship has it's bumps, it wouldn't be a romance book without them, but I won't tell what happens, I also won't give up what happens with the suspense plot.  It's interesting and while a little out there at times, ultimately it does seem believable, scary yet believable.  My interest level did wane at times, but honestly I think that was me more than the book, because truly there was enough action, romance and suspense to keep any reader interested.  I definitely want to go back and read the earlier books and look forward to Harrison's story in the next book.  He played a definite role in this book and I'm interest to learn more about him in the next book.

Ms. Davis has a way with characters and action and her books are definitely worth reading.  I look forward to reading more in the future.

My Rating: 4.0/5.0

About the Book:
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.


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?
