early review || RISK OF EXPOSURE by Emmy Curtis

Forever | May 3, 2016 | Military Romance
Alpha Ops, book 6

He is a trained professional—but nothing can prepare him for the hottest mission of his life. Assigned to protect his boss’s daughter, British former SAS operative Malone Garrett breaks the first rule of covert surveillance—don’t make contact. And especially don’t take your mark out to dinner, then agree to a rooftop quickie. But now that Mal has Abby in his arms, he has no intention of ever letting her go.

Abby Baston told herself it was a hit and quit, a one-nighter with a hot, handsome stranger whose hands were trained to take action. Working undercover for the CIA, she can’t risk anything more. But when an international crisis ignites, Abby must make a call: trust Mal with her secret—and her heart—and partner up, or lose everything in a split second . . .

{ review } .

After a couple of "disappointments" in the series where I just couldn't connect with the characters (err... the females, anyway), I was so so so excited to connect and be thoroughly engrossed in the lives of Abby and Malone.

Malone finds himself on the Ukraine/Russia border watching the boring daughter of his boss. After days of surveillance, he's ready to call it quits -- until he sees a side of her he hadn't caught in her very predictable schedule. His gut tells him there's more to her story...

Recruited into the CIA in college, Abby has kept her life completely secret from her friends and family. She made a vow of secrecy and she fully intends to keep it. Her current op has her posing at an orphanage -- where she loses her heart again and again.

When the unthinkable happens, and the man she met as another aide worker turns out to be just as specialized as she, she breaks her vow and she and Malone set off on a suspenseful journey that brings them closer together.

I think I may have enjoyed Malone and Abby's story more than I did the first two books -- and they were my favorites! This story was full of adventure and our multi-dimensional characters were super fun to read about. I loved these two and their constant bickering from day one -- they were so incredibly great with one another. While I'm sad to see the series end, I found that this was a great book to close it out -- and the epilogue! Oh, the epilogue... It was sweet and has my heart panging for just a little bit more of these two.
