A former gun for hire and a federal agent find themselves on the right side of love but the wrong end of a bullet in this Richter installment from New York Times bestselling author Catherine Bybee.
On a fateful night in Las Vegas, FBI agent Leo Grant is working on a critical detail in a high-profile child prostitution trial when a beautiful woman jumps into the path of a bullet meant for him. Little does Leo know that the woman is Olivia, an ex-assassin who is seeking redemption one good deed at a time.
One minute, Olivia is lunging in front of Leo on the Vegas Strip. The next, she's waking up in the hospital in a haze of pain with no memory of her past, her enemies, or even her own name.
With Olivia suffering from memory loss and completely unaware of the danger she is in, it's up to Leo and Neil MacBain's team of operatives to keep her safe. With Olivia and Leo both unaware of her past crimes, the two have little reason to avoid their growing attraction. Slowly her past seeps in through the cracks as she struggles to find the answers of who she is. When the veil is lifted and her dark past is staring her down, Olivia must turn her back on Leo and the love she can never allow herself to have, and race to find her would-be killer.
4 Heart Review by Ashley
Confession time: It has been a couple of years since I've read a book from Catherine Bybee. And I am kicking myself because, as evidenced in A Thin Disguise, she has this uncanny ability to weave romance and mystery and danger with such a balance that I am left hanging on every word.
I loved that Olivia was a strong, independent woman. Granted that life was lonely but it was necessary to keep herself and others safe. But when an assignment brings her face to face with one Mr. FBI Man, Leo Grant, things get a lot messy.
I really liked Leo. He was just a good guy. Dedicated to his job and doing the right thing for the right reasons. But when he saw Olivia, there was just something about her that called to him. That made him want to take a risk and skirt the line of what was right and what was fair. My favorite thing about him is how he didn't give up on Olivia. He was protective but also knew there were things she had to do on her own, no matter how much he didn't like it.
From Las Vegas to Budapest and a few places in between, Leo and Olivia's quasi opposites attract romance was a whirlwind of secrets, half truths and danger. Talk about intense reading. I can not wait to see what is in store for this brave group next.
