On the flap: Reed Software and Securities Company: A publically traded tech company with a hidden agenda. They are hired to take on some of the most difficult covert operations and contracts the government won't acknowledge. As the new CEO and face of Reed Software and Securities Company, Jacob Reed has been trying to get out of the family business as a covert operator. Lately he's been fantasizing about settling down, living a normal life away from the paparazzi, guns, and drug lords. Katie Wilson loves her job as a broadcast journalist for Channel 10 news. She is just beginning to explore her career when she gets the lead on a new story that could blow up an international sex trafficking operation. When their jobs force their paths to explosively collide, Katie is caught in the crossfire and has no memory of that night. A year will pass before fate seemingly draws them together and he saves her a second time. Now that Jacob has unknowingly brought Katie into his world, she's become a target for danger from an unknown source... and this time he refuses to let her go at all costs.
Looking for a quick read? Well this book is it. I was amazed at how fast I flew threw this book. I am a big fan of military turned civilian romances. This one is no exception. I loved the two main characters, Jacob and Katie. Jacob Reed is the CEO of Reed Software and Securities. He has one foot in the corporate world and one in the covert ops world. The fact that he has brawn as well as brains and is a man dime that loves his dog makes me melt. Katie Wilson is an up and coming news reporter who is always chasing down a hot lead. She is gutsy, stubborn and full of moxie. You gotta love a heroine with moxie.
This story was well written. It not only had you on the edge the whole time but also sparked your curiosity. As I was reading I kept on asking myself if this person was a friend or foe. What was their angle? What did they have to gain? Such is the world of covert operations. You never know whom you can trust. These elements along with the love story made for a quick read. I am really hoping this is not the last we have heard from MC Cerny or the men and woman of Reed Security. I think there are lots of stories to be told.

You can always find me with my nose in my Kindle reading a romance novel starring a tough talking, hard loving alpha male and sassy heroine. For the past six years reading has been my addiction. I am always up for a good read and am excited when I get any suggestions. My other loves are working out and spending time with my hubs, family and friends.
