Thrilling suspense that wraps up a story started in the previous book. When we met Nicole Locke she been forced to be a cartel leader’s wife in order to save the man she loved. The Knight Agency her best friend worked for managed to rescue her and put him behind bars but his threat of killing her ex fiance if she ever had contact with him again was still in play.
Nicole cannot believe her luck when she is assigned to help find the killer of a murdered police officer and it turns out his partner is none other than Cage Burnett the man she had to pretend to betray to save his life. Due to her being a Naval Intelligence Officer when she was engaged to him she kept many secrets from him so he had no reason not to believe that she didnt just cheat on him. And even though she would like nothing better than to just tell him of the hell she has been through her reason’s for protecting him haven’t changed even with his clear disdain of having to work with her.
I was curious to meet Cage since the first book. Here was a man that a woman loved so much she was willing to give up her life and have to be married to a horrible man that had murdered a child in front of her to keep her line. Cage’s anger towards Nicole was understandable even though as a reader you wanted to scream the truth at him. Cage was worthy of Nicole’s love and when all the secrets come out he could not believe what this woman did for him and that he didnt see the truth all those years ago.
There are some twist and turns that happen during the investigation that finally leads to a shocking conclusion. All the characters from the first book at the Knight Agency are back and I so look forward to the future books with the other female agents.
