He’s a hot British billionaire.
The rich, muscled, former special forces soldier.
He’s a temptation she doesn’t want and can’t afford, but now she’s working undercover in his company to catch a rogue arms dealer.
Former MI6 agent Hadley “Striker” Lockwood found a new life in New York working for Sentinel Security. Her work fills a tired, jaded hole inside her. Life is just how she likes it, and she definitely has no desire for a man to mess that up.
When her next assignment sends her back to London to hunt a dangerous arms dealer, she finds herself not only face to face with a darkly tempting billionaire, but going undercover as his newest employee.
Bennett Knightley left the SAS with dark scars scratched on his soul and a determination to help in different ways. His successful company Secura makes high-tech gear for soldiers around the world, but now it’s under attack. Shipments are going missing, and his people are being targeted.
Enter Hadley—intelligent, stubborn, beautiful, and with walls a mile thick. Bennett’s never been tempted to mix business and pleasure, but with Hadley in the office he’s torn between their mission and claiming the maddening woman for himself.
As Hadley and Bennett close in on their enemy, they fight hard against their overwhelming attraction. She’s been burned before but the hot billionaire is getting under her skin. With Hadley, Bennett feels parts of himself coming back to life—now he has to not only convince her to trust him, but convince himself he deserves her.

4 Heart Review by Ashley
A badass undercover female on a mission? Yes please and thank you. It was exactly what made me want to pick up Striker. But what made me keep turning the pages was the dynamic between Hadley and Bennett.
With an unknown threat coming for Bennett and more questions than answers at every turn, it was all they could do to try to get one step ahead. It meant a lot of time with Hadley putting her anger aside so they could work closely together. Talk about sexual tension and chemistry, under some simmering animosity of course.
When they finally gave into what had been brewing between them it was so worth the wait. I loved watching these two people who were so dedicated to their work, drop their guard. More than that, I loved that they found a safe place to lay their fears and past hurts in one another.
Did I guess who was behind all the mayhem before the big reveal? Yes. Was I disappointed about it? Not one bit. The way Anna Hackett wove the pieces together had me hanging on every word to see what would happen next. Whew! Can you say intense? My pulse was pounding as everything played out and the aftermath of what went down. But that little tease at the end...I can't wait to see what is in store for the Sentinel Security crew next!
