Book Description: After two years undercover as an FBI agent to infiltrate a crime organization and discover the identity of a hit man, Tyler Beckett’s cover is blown. Tyler’s new assignment is to protect the only witness who can identify the mysterious killer. If only he didn’t find her so attractive. Each day it becomes harder to keep his objective, especially since he knows the interest is mutual.My Thoughts: Wonderfully fast-paced novel, that is full of twists and turns - so hard to put down!!!
Keira Cavanaugh is the only witness to a hit ordered by a crime boss. The safe house is compromised and the same hit man shoots Tyler. Fearing Tyler is dead, Keira plans revenge on the crime organization. She must fake her own suicide in order to survive.
When Tyler discovers what Keira plans, he realizes he must stop her before he loses her for good.
The opening scene starts the reader off with immediate suspense - Keira witnesses a very graphic murder! She cannot forget the blue eyes of the hit-man that committed the murder! Little does she know that no one has ever seen (been able to identify) this hit-man before. She came to New York for excitement, but got more than she bargained for!!
In addition to the continual suspense involved, this book offers a great romance story that is totally intertwined throughout. Keira, who goes into protective custody, and her protector, Tyler, who was friends with the murder victim, fall head over heals for each other - almost immediately. If I had one complaint, it was that there was not a real build up to the romance - seemed to happen too quick. However, after the fact, I loved the interactions between the two.
I did enjoy this book, and will be looking forward to the next book in the Beckett series - Innocent.
