Action, intrigue and totally hot Alpha males...what more could you ask for!
Dirty Deeds #1
Two seasoned operatives finally meet their match: each other.
Cillian works for the mysterious Special Branch 20: an organization that runs black ops commissioned by the British government. His specialty is deep undercover assignments with virtually no support. He’s been alone for so long that he no longer knows anything else.
Mal’s also used to being alone. Wanted in several states and even more countries, he’s not allowed in the vicinity of any of his former Navy SEAL teammates. And his current assignment is to track Cillian in order to discover the spook’s endgame. Except he’s no longer sure which one of them is getting played.
Cillian isn’t about to let the mission that’s consumed him for the past several years crumble because an outsider is poking around where he doesn’t belong. But Mal forces his way through Cillian’s defenses—and into his heart—exposing a devastating betrayal that could destroy them both.
Confession; at the beginning of December I had not read a book by SE Jakes, and now, I have read everything and am asking myself why I waited so long.
Ok so you know Mal from the Hell or High Water series, and if you haven't read that series you need to stop and go do that now! He can't speak due to an injury but that doesn't stop him from getting his point across. The man is crazy sexy and cool as hell. Seriously not sure who has the shadier back ground....Mal or Cillian.
Cillian is also a character that you meet in the HoHW series so again....go read it! I thought the IM messages between Cillian and Prophet were hot but they are totally PG compared to the messages between Cillian and Mal.
It's through the IM encounters that the two men start to open up a bit, or as much as two men in deep undercover who have been burned before and have total trust issues can open up. The conversations start out light but quickly become real and that is something neither man expects.
There is so much action, it is non-stop and a great beginning to this spin-off series. It will leave you sitting in a corner rocking back and forth murmuring "I need more". Jakes weaves espionage, betrayal and sex seamlessly and the way this one ended, all I could do was gasp! I have become an addict and I am NOT looking for a 12 step program.
If you are a fan of Abi Roux's Cut & Run series or Mary Calmes A Matter of Time series then you need to add Jakes to your auto-buy list!
