A woman on a mission
Phoebe Graham is a specialist in deep cover espionage, infiltrating the enemy, observing their practices, and when necessary eliminating the threat. Her latest assignment is McKay-Taggart Security Services, staffed with former military and intelligence operatives. They routinely perform clandestine operations all over the world but it isn’t until Jesse Murdoch joins the team that her radar starts spinning. Unfortunately so does her head. He’s gorgeous and sweet and her instincts tell her to trust him but she’s been burned before, so he’ll stay where he belongs—squarely in her sights.
A man on the run
Since the moment his Army unit was captured by jihadists, Jesse’s life has been a nightmare. Forced to watch as those monsters tortured and killed his friends and the woman he loved, something inside him snapped. When he’s finally rescued, everyone has the same question—why did he alone survive? Clouded in accusations and haunted by the faces of those he failed, Jesse struggles in civilian life until McKay-Taggart takes him in. Spending time with Phoebe, the shy and beautiful accountant, makes him feel human for the first time in forever. If someone so innocent and sweet could accept him, maybe he could truly be redeemed.
A love they never expected
When Phoebe receives the order to eliminate Jesse, she must choose between the job she’s dedicated her life to and the man who’s stolen her heart. Choosing Jesse would mean abandoning everything she believes in, and it might mean sharing his fate because a shadowy killer is dedicated to finishing the job started in Iraq.
Don't you just love finally getting to read the next book in a series you absolutely LOVE!?
Yea...me too!! (we are so alike!)
So I finally got my chance to read the next in the Master and Mercenaries series by the amazing Lexi Blake! I feel like I've been waiting forever for it, though it's only been a few months. That seriously tells you how much I adore this series.
Jesse and Phoebe are extremely sweet characters. Regardless of their history they really are just so darn cute together. They don't have that passion that Ian has with Charlotte or the history like Alex and Eve have...they're met fairly recently and find some serious comfort in each others company.
Of course, there are secrets everywhere and little miss Phoebe has some serious ones. Even some that I was shocked with!
But OMG I absolutely LOVED their Sanctum scene. Like seriously...it was so great!
Oh an Mr. Tennessee Smith.....we will just be seeing your beautiful ass next time....
