ARE THEY IN TOO DEEP?
Ex-Navy SEAL Cabe Moss always comes when called to duty―at all costs. Even though the death of his fiancée nearly destroyed him, Cabe won’t let his past interfere with any work that has to get done. When his latest task pushes him to team up with FBI Agent Amy Murray, a fierce beauty with the undercover skills to match, Cabe must admit that, for the first time in years, he wants to do more than just complete their mission together…
Amy was born ready for this assignment, but working side-by-side with the the strong, silent, and frustratingly professional Cabe seems to be the biggest challenge of all. But when the sparks begin to fly―and the stakes rise to dangerous heights―the only thing Amy is left worrying about is how she can resist him. Their lives may be in danger, but their hearts hold the biggest risk of all…

“It was wrong to think about her in any other way than as his colleague, but somehow that message had yet to reach his dick.”
Being a sucker for broken bad boys I’ve been waiting for Cabe’s story. I met him while reading Final Siege as a standalone which gave me just enough info about him to intrigue me. His past is clouding his future, but he doesn’t let that stand in the way of doing his job. The loss of his fiancée has left scars deeper than the physical ones and he’s not looking to go down that road again. But he can’t deny that his body and his brain are drawn to FBI Agent Amy Murray. His best friend, “Six had always laughed at the way Cabe had found women’s IQs way more interesting than their bra sizes.” Amy had both brains and beauty, and she was off-limits, at least while they were working undercover on a case. But his dick still hadn’t gotten the message…
I really enjoyed the witty banter between Cabe and his partners who work with him in the security firm they started after leaving the military. They have been friends since they were kids and their families are all close to each other. Add that to the fact that they served together as SEALs, their bond is strong. That connection that they share makes them a force to be reckoned with when they are on a case, as they are able to communicate without words. So what are the chances he’ll be able to keep his attraction to Amy a secret?
I can’t resist a good crime story so Deep Cover was a real treat for me. I totally got into the details and my heart was racing as the characters were thrown into danger. The combination of sexual tension and suspense was an explosive cocktail that I was totally on board for. And the undercover persona that Cabe & Amy had to adopt during their investigation was very exciting. The author did an excellent job of drawing me into their cover, and I just soaked up the lessons they learned to play their parts. I felt like I was right there, mentally wearing all black and listening as they shared intel, ready to run to the rescue if they were detected. Yeah, I’m badass in my imagination. What a ride, I didn’t want it to end. Now that it has, I’m ready for whatever adventure the author takes me on next. The line forms here…
