Each one is unique, filled with suspense, constant tension and some romance that can also add tension to the story.

BookLoverGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Better than an action movie!March 29, 2017BookLoverGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5When I pick up one of Ms. Phillips' books, I know right away that I'm in for an adventure! And I love that! Her books actually kinda put me in the mind of action movies - they are super fast paced and there's always something happening! She keeps me on the edge of my seat, wondering what could possibly happen next that these poor characters may or may not survive. Those statements are definitely true of this one, as well! I'm also very excited that this is the first book in a new series and can't wait to find out who's book is next (I think I know, hopefully)!
This new series is "Secret Service Agents" and I was curious at the premise of one being undercover and coming across his previous protectee, a former president's daughter. I have to be honest, I thought the Secret Service's sole responsibility was protecting the president and dignitaries, so I was interested to learn of the other ways they work to protect the US. I appreciated the details the author included that added depth and layers, both to the investigation and to Conner's character. Speaking of which: the characters are always my favorite part and the reason I keep reading any book, and these were excellent! I enjoyed getting to know Kayla and seeing the strength of character so ingrained in her. She is stubborn, brave, determined, but also has the sense to allow Conner and the other agents to protect her when needed. Conner shares most of those attributes, but the last one. He doesn't see himself as needing protection, but rather the one who has to watch over others. I loved seeing him come to accept the help others offer.
I honestly can't think of anything I didn't enjoy about this story! If you're looking for a fast-paced, suspenseful, on-the-edge-of-your-seat story, with a bit of romance, then I highly recommend this one!
