When an assassin tries to kill undercover DEA agent Tucker Pankov the same week his boss is taken out, Tucker has good reason to be paranoid. And when other members of his elite team are not only targeted, but stripped of top-secret security clearance, Tucker has one shot at discovering who wants them dead—and why. So he kidnaps the only woman he thinks can save them.  

Brilliant NSA analyst Karen Stafford doesn’t like being forced into anything, especially by someone she doesn’t trust. Yet after a hijacked US-owned drone starts attacking government installations resulting in mass casualties, Karen has to take Tucker’s side.  Now, two unlikely allies must unite to prevent an escalating and unthinkable terrorist conspiracy. But as Tucker and Karen grow intimate, they realize the conspiracy runs deep, and their enemies are closer than anyone realized. *New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Eden

Book 4 of the Deadly Ops series had the best character development in the series. This series has really impressed me with the high level storytelling, likeable characters, hot sex scenes and a suspenseful mystery.

Tucker Pankov and his team are being framed but they have no idea who is after them and why. So they decide they need the help of Wesley Burkhart, the director of the NSA, but he won’t give them the time of the day. In order to get his attention, Tucker and his team kidnap Karen Stafford, Burkhart’s right hand employee. Thus now, they have two separate Governmental agencies hunting them.

Tucker Pankov and Karen Stafford’s story was a fast paced story and it was just as enjoyable as the last book. This was an on-the-run romance that surprisingly didn’t feel like Stockholm syndrome. Instead the reader can’t help but really pull for Tucker to find out who is being the cover-up, get Karen to completely trust and still get Burkhart’s cooperation. The main characters are both strong and resilient in their own right. Even though their pull was almost immediate, the attraction to each other was believable.

Again, Sophie Eastlake kept me entertained with her narration. She is a great fit for this series because each story has felt unique as I listened to them. I am really surprised at how much I am liking this series.
