DescriptionToo quiet. A talented hacker who got caught, Brigid Banaghan is now forced to work with a secret Deep Ops unit. But she won’t reveal any more to these renegade Feds than she has to. Especially not to Raider Tanaka, her control freak of a bodyguard and handler. It’s enough that his body is tensed for action and his heated gaze is always on her . . .
Too sharp. Raider knows there’s more to his new assignment than he’s been told. Why send a deadly agent of his experience to guard a computer genius—even a gorgeous, unpredictable, undisciplined one? But when Brigid’s estranged father is named in an investigation into Boston’s organized crime, Raider’s mind switches onto high alert, just like his senses . . .
Too close. To clear her father’s name, Brigid needs Raider’s help. The Unit’s idea that she bring a straight-laced Fed in as her “fiancé” won’t fly, though—not unless Raider can release his inner bad boy and become the rebel Brigid can’t resist . . .AMAZON LINK
I really like this group of quirky people and the rough position that they are in. They have the world's worst headquarters with what people who the world of crime fighters consider losers. Or if not losers they are being "punished" for something. The Feds are doing everything they can to NOT support their efforts. And that is just wrong. It does make the story even more interesting though. You just never knew what was going to happen next.
Angus, Wolfe, Nari are all good secondary but very important people in the story. I enjoyed their input into the story even Brigid's father Sean managed to put some sparks into the story. I also liked the inclusion of some of the animals too. Not people "like animals" but real ones. Kat and Roscoe to be specific. Kat is a sweet kitten but Roscoe is the one with the very interesting personality. This is a dog who is a booze hound with a fetish for shoes. All of those things have to be kept put up and away from him.
There is plenty of action as well as romance to the story which I enjoyed. Just to let you know there are several investigations going on at once but not in a confusing way. The story kept my interest all the way through. So I would say that the author hits another high note with this one. And all I could say was, "give me more."
