Review: Dangerous Desires
Dangerous Desires is the 2nd book in the A-TAC series by Dee Davis and a Romantic Suspense from Forever, an imprint of Grand Central Publishing.
As the extractions expert for A-TAC, an elite CIA black ops unit masquerading as faculty at an Ivy League college, Drake Flynn knows how to survive behind enemy lines. But he's about to meet one adversary he can't subdue...or resist.
A Race For Survival
Stranded in the Colombian jungle after a mission goes bad, Drake has only one objective: evade the mercenaries hot on his trail and deliver 'the package' to U.S. officials. But 'the package' has a mind of her own, and she has no intention of trading one set of captors for another. Madeline Reynard is beautiful, headstrong, and hell-bent on escape after years as a crime lord's pawn. She'll risk everything for freedom, even if it means deceiving the dark, handsome operative who now holds her life in his hands.
Drake has been burned too many times to let a woman manipulate him, especially a secretive one like Madeline. Even so, they cannot deny the attraction between them. Now as enemy forces close in, Drake and Madeline must trust each other with their lives - or face certain death.
This book was submitted for review and I retain my copy.
Dangerous Desires is the 2nd book in the A-TAC series by Dee Davis, following Dark Deceptions - but it is completely readable as a stand alone novel.
This is the first book I have read by this author and I was completely drawn in - finishing the book in one sitting and left wanting more.
Drake Flynn is an operative for an elite branch of the CIA - he is intelligent and fearless and very good at his job.
Madeline Reynard has been caught up in some very bad business and she is ready to get out - but she can't do it alone and she has no one to turn to for help.
When the members of A-TAC arrive in Columbia - they realize that getting to Madeline was the easy job - getting out with her is going to be a little more difficult.
I love the whole concept of an elite branch of the CIA working undercover as faculty at an Ivy League college.
Dangerous Desires jumped in with both feet and took off running. This book is action packed from start to finish and it even manages some steamy sexy bits for those readers who like a little more than gun play in your romantic suspense novels. :)
I give Dangerous Desires 4 out of 5 stars and can't wait to read the next installment in the A-TAC series - Desperate Deeds, available in August.
