Crack CIA analyst Trista Gold is a whiz with the computer, but not so much with people. She hides behind her job, analyzing Top Secret code and making recommendations on national security. She doesn’t need a man in her life. But she will, very soon…
CIA K-9 officer Sgt. Matt Connors suspects that beneath Trista’s uptight appearance, there’s a sexy woman itching to cut loose. But he doesn’t dare act on his attraction. He’s a loner and always will be. Keeping away from Trista is a must-do directive. Until he doesn’t have a choice…
During a routine assignment, Trista stumbles across a cryptic exchange. She doesn’t think much of it…until someone tries to murder her—twice. Both times, Matt had been there to save her. But now she has to hide. And her new bodyguard, Matt, and his K-9 are the only hope she has against the powerful forces that want her dead.
Yay! Another book where the girl is a computer geek (my favorite kind of girls as a bit of a nerd myself. You can also try The Wrong Kind of Compatible). Meet Trista, absolute brilliant with a computer, but absolutely hopeless in talking to the opposite sex. She prefers her laptop to a hot guy, or so she tells herself. But when Trista accidently stumbles upon a conversation in a dark room on the web, she gets exposed. Not even 24 hours later, she is ambushed and nearly robbed on her way home.
CIA K-9 officer Matt happened to see the robbery on Trista, after having met her at the office. He rescues her, but Trista shrugs it off as a random robbery. She is convinced it has nothing to do with her line of work. When another attempt is made on her life, Matt is sure she has seen or heard more than she should have. And now someone wants her dead.
The only way to protect her, is to take Trista away to the remote home of Matt, where several of his friends are bunking, with their K-9 dogs. But Trista is terrified of dogs, and so is her cat. So, that will be an interesting mission. Meanwhile Matt tries to deny the mutual attraction between him and Trista. He carries a lot of guilt and doesn’t want to be involved with someone. However, when Trista is in danger, he just wants to hold her and protect her.
Will they get their HEA? Find out for yourself in this explosive story. And if you like a cats-and-dogs fight, you are in for a treat! Four out of five stars from me and a special thank you to Netgalley for providing the arc.
