Someone to watch over her . . .
Her life in beautiful Arrowhead Bay seems like paradise. But for former CIA operative Marissa Hayes, it’s a deep cover she’s forced to live under after daring to take down a powerful enemy with strong terrorist ties. Out of necessity, she keeps her emotions as guarded as her life, even as she finds herself drawn to Justin Kelly, the most arousing man she’s ever met. But when Marissa must find a new place to hide, the able-bodied Vigilance agent is the first man she turns to . . .
Justin can’t get close to Marissa, if he hopes to keep her alive. Which only makes sharing a villa with her at a remote island resort all the more challenging. The passion rising between them is exquisite—and excruciating. Even more so when terrorists infiltrate the island, putting Marissa in the crosshairs. Now Justin will do anything to protect the woman he cares about more deeply than he dares to admit. . . .

A Deadly Business is an adrenaline pumping and thrilling romantic suspense read that keeps readers hanging on the edge of their seat. Marissa Hayes is a former CIA operative hiding from a powerful enemies with terrorist ties and Justine Kelly is the Vigilance man that has to keep her alive.
These two strong, gripping characters are easily connected to and pulls readers into their story with ease as they fight to stay alive while trying to keep a handle on the exquisite and excruciating passion that is rising between them. Because of Marissa’s life and her past, she is quite reluctant to embark on a serious relationship and Justin knows that he shouldn’t mix business with pleasure if he wants to keep her alive, but the passion burns hot and fast throughout the story adding to the intensity of the dangerous thrills of the plot and making it extremely hard for this couple to fight their attraction.
The plot is fast paced, smooth flowing and filled with a passionate romance and an exciting fight for survival against an enemy that will stop at nothing to bring down everyone in his caught in his crosshairs. Surprising twists and high tension events keeps readers glued to the pages and ensures that there is never a dull moment.
I couldn’t quit turning the pages of this thrilling Vigilance read and I found that this particular story in this series had an overall realistic feel to the way the characters reacted and handled the intense situation that they found themselves in which made the story even more enjoyable and I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series.
