In Deep Cover (Love Over Duty #3) by Scarlett Cole, FBI Agent Amy Murray has skills that are necessary to the team's latest assignment -- taking down a suspected trafficking ring and money laundering operation. Knowing distractions could prove costly to her operation, she's determined to ignore her attraction to private security specialist Cabe Moss. However, the closer they work together, the more Amy and Cabe find it impossible to resist their fierce attraction. Will the pair getting involved prove costly or will they get their shot at happy ever after once the case is wrapped up?

I have loved this series from the first book, but have to admit that Deep Cover is the best book of Ms. Cole's Love over Duty series. Really, there was something absolutely memorable about this story -- the fast-paced plot that provides a good dose of suspense, compelling dialogue that drew me in from the very beginning because of the main characters back stories and the challenges they face to be together; and the secondary characters in the hero's friends that entertained me just as much as the main ones because Cabe and his friends are very close and would do anything for each other. 

With the dialogue, it was very entertaining and intense due to the main characters back stories and the case the pair are investigating that could put the heroine in danger because she fits the criteria for the bad guys. Will the heroine be able to handle everything that comes her way when it comes to the investigation? Moreover, the heroine is strong, brave, a good agent and I liked how determined she was to help take down the bad guys. I also liked that she took a chance on the hero, even though she knows things may lead to trouble for her, considering what she's already gone through at the FBI she last worked at. While the hero, I couldn't help but sympathize with him because of his back story and how it's hard to let go and give another woman a chance because he's already had one great love. However, in saying that, I liked his determination to win the heroine over since she's just what he needs to finally heal from his past and be happy. Yet, what I liked most of all about the hero was how protective he was of the heroine. No way will he let the bad guys win. 

Overall, Ms. Cole has delivered a fantastic and well-written story in this one where the chemistry between this couple was strong; the romance was full of heat and passion and shows just how good Amy is for Cabe; and the ending had me worried for the main characters when it comes to the trouble they face, but had me loving the lengths both the hero and heroine were willing to go to in order to achieve their happy ever after. Will the hero and heroine take down the bad guys without too much trouble? However, it was the epilogue that wrapped this story up perfectly because these two are so happy together. I would recommend Deep Cover by Scarlett Cole, if you enjoy romantic suspense, the mysterious strangers trope or books by authors AJ Nuest, Kris Rafferty, Tee O'Fallon and Tonya Burrows.

“Where are you hiding my baby girl?” a large voice boomed from the Caesars Palace hallway.
Valentina nodded her head in the direction of the doorway. “You should go find him before he disrupts any of the private tables,” she said with a smile.
Amy wandered to the door and found her Stetson-clad father looking into one of the rooms. “I’m right here, Dad,” she said as she hurried to him and hugged him in the hallway. He smelled of leather and cigar smoke. Maybe it was because she’d lost her mother so many years ago, but it was impossible to explain the feeling of safety that washed over her when she was fortunate enough to spend time around her father.
“Let me look at you,” he said, taking a step away from her. He studied her face. “Humph. San Diego appears to agree with you. I was kinda hoping it wouldn’t.”
“It does. And while you know I can’t talk about what I’m working on, the job does too.” Over her father’s shoulder, she saw Cabe walking toward them with Uncle Clive. She smiled when she noticed that Cabe was wearing a black jacket that fit him to perfection. He’d remembered. “Dad, let me introduce you to Cabe Moss.”
Her father turned and offered Cabe his hand. “Well aren’t you one big son of a bitch? If you’re the guy who has my little girl’s back, I feel better already.”
Cabe’s face broke into a grin. “My pleasure, sir.”
“Sir. I like manners in a man. Military?”
“A SEAL, sir.” Cabe said.
“Well, let’s see if we can’t teach you a thing or two. Which room are we in, Clive?”
As Uncle Clive led her father farther down the hallway, she turned and noticed Cabe’s eyes were on her legs. Her bare legs. “Eyes up here, soldier,” she said, humor in her tone. It made her feel warm inside that he was looking.
“It’s sailor,” he said with a wink. “They’re good-looking legs, and I’m only human.”
It was wrong to let him flirt, it was wrong for her to respond, but for a moment, she wanted to pretend the rules didn’t apply. She reached forward and brushed a piece of lint off the shoulder of his jacket, then smoothed down his lapels. It was an intimate thing to do, she knew. And a risk, given the requirement to stay focused on the job. But hell, a piece of her had always believed in the what-happens-in-Vegas slogan. Here, in the middle of Caesars Palace, the real world didn’t truly exist. “You look good in a suit, sailor.”
Cabe placed his hands on top of hers and squeezed them gently. “You’re killing me, Ames.”
The heat of his fingers burned her inside. Made her want things she had no business wanting from a man she had no business wanting them from. “Why Ames?”
He shrugged. “I don’t know. I just like it. It’s catchy. Makes you sound like one of those TV cop heroines from the seventies.”
Amy looked at their joined hands for just a millisecond longer before pulling them away. “You should go and start practicing,” she said. “If I’m going to work my way into the Lucky Seven Casino’s inner circle, I’d feel better if you were there too.”
“I’ll be there. But rest assured, even if I’m not invited, I’ll find a way to cover your back.” Cabe placed his hand around the back of her neck and pulled her forward gently to place a chaste kiss on her forehead. “I’ll be there, even if you can’t see me. I promise.”




The tattoo across my right hip says it all really. A Life Less Ordinary. Inked by the amazingly talented Luke Wessman at the Wooster Street Social Club (a.k.a. New York Ink). Why is it important? Well, it sums up my view on life. That we should all aspire to live a life that is less boring, less predictable. Be bold, and do something amazing. I’ve made some crazy choices. I’ve been a car maker, a consultant, and even a senior executive at a large retailer running strategy. Born in England, spent time in the U.S. and Japan, before ending up in Canada were I met my own, personal hero – all six and a half feet of him. Both of us are scorpios! Yeah, I know! Should have checked the astrological signs earlier, but somehow it works for us. We have two amazing kids, who I either could never part with or could easily be convinced to sell on e-bay.
I’ve wanted to be a writer for a really long time. Check through my office cupboards or my computer and you’ll find half written stories and character descriptions everywhere. Now I'm getting the chance to follow that dream.
