Too 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 . . .
Praise for the debut novel in the Deep Ops series
“Explodes with action, spice and humor.”
“Fans of J. D. Robb and Karen Robards will love Zanetti’s series
“The suspense is chilling and the romance is hot.”
New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Rebecca Zanetti has worked as an art curator, Senate aide, lawyer, college professor, and a hearing examiner – only to culminate it all in stories about Alpha males and the women who claim them. She writes dark paranormals, romantic suspense, and sexy contemporary romances.
Growing up amid the glorious backdrops and winter wonderlands of the Pacific Northwest has given Rebecca fantastic scenery and adventures to weave into her stories. She resides in the wild north with her husband, children, and extended family who inspire her every day–or at the very least give her plenty of characters to write about.
Hacker Brigid Banaghan hates the undercover work she’s forced to do after getting caught by the HDD. She’s placed with a washed-up Deep Ops unit and is supposed to report on all activities. It isn’t long though before her loyalties shift and she’s placed in the awkward position of lying to both parties.
Her growing attraction to Raider Tanaka doesn’t help. He’s her pretend fiancé in a mission to capture a group of human traffickers involving a mob her father had previous ties with- or was it in the past? She’s determined to prove his innocence and capture those who are behind the ring.
Raider isn’t happy having the inexperienced Banaghan along on an undercover sting operation. He’s supposed to be her handler- he can’t afford to be distracted by the Irish beauty, but her plucky spirit and vulnerability draws him to her.
The action is fast-paced, with the good guys taking as many hits as the bad guys, but offset by humorous characters, (like Roscoe, the high-heel wearing PTSD dog) and snarky interactions that had me laughing-out-loud.
The Romance between Raider and Brigid is hot and sexy, with enough chemistry to burn up the pages, and had enough misunderstandings to make me want to bang their heads together!Tweet
I give Fallen 5+ lovely kisses- Loved this book!
