USA Today Bestselling Author
Max DiSalvo gave his entire life to the SEALs. He would have married—he certainly enjoyed women—but he never could find one who understood his dedication to the Teams, even though many of his team members married happily. It takes a certain caliber of woman to be a SEAL wife and Max just never found one that fit with him. Now, at 48, he is out of the SEALs, running his own commercial fishing company in Maine where he grew up, and waiting for his assignments from DHS.
Regan Shaw, a SEAL widow, is an Intelligence Operations Specialist with DHS, and a woman who Max is drawn to from first sight. Part of her job is analyzing information to assess threats and she’s discovered a doozy—there is a secret group of very wealthy people who, in partnership with a powerful cartel, are using the border with Mexico to smuggle terrorists from the Middle East into the country. And word has come down that a high level member of the government is clearing the way with them for everything.
The group is about to have one of its executive meetings at an exclusive resort in Texas and that’s where DHS is sending the two of them. Credentials have been arranged that would make him attractive to the group. A story has been set and there is backup for him should he need it. Regan, who has all the information on this operation, will go with him as his wife.
As they uncover more and more of the operation, they realize just how dangerous this group really is. When someone betrays them, and Regan is kidnapped, Max goes into war mode, because in Regan Shaw he’s found the woman he’s waited for all his life and he doesn’t intend to lose her now. But he will need every bit of the skills that he learned as a SEAL to rescue her and bring down this very dirty conspiracy.
Some coincidences cannot be ignored and the fact that former SEAL Commander Max Di Salvo looks just like the brother and partner of recently arrested arms dealer is just one. When Silas Branson visits Max, he presents him with a mission he can’t turn down.
Regan Shaw has been assigned to DHS as an intelligence analyst. It’s a job she’s been doing for the Navy but she found something that had Silas ‘stealing’ her away. But another coincidence, she looks just like the wife of said arms dealer’s brother.
With the looks down Silas also couldn’t ignore the fact that these two also share first names with the bad guys. It was a perfect way to infiltrate and stop the heinous attack that was in the works.
Max and Regan meet at a highly secure mansion outside of DC with Silas and the rest of their team. The introduction was quite amusing.
This is a favorite scene.
He guessed her height to be about five foot six. The dark-green sweater and beige slacks she wore, although not tight or clinging, still did little to disguise her lusciously rounded body, hitting her breasts and hips at just the right angle. Auburn hair fell in soft waves to her shoulders, framing a heart-shaped face with creamy skin. This was no office nerd or timid techno geek. This was a woman, with a capital W.
His mouth watered just at the sight of her. Instead of worrying about how he was going to pass her off as his wife, he was more concerned with being able to keep his hands to himself. He couldn’t remember the last time he’d reacted to a woman this way. It was…well…okay, never. He’d had many women that made him hot and horny. But none had ever caused a full body reaction like this one.
Si bent his head to whisper in his ear. “Put your tongue back in your mouth, Max. Better men than you have lusted after her. No deal.”
But that was as far as he got. The woman came toward him, smiling warmly and holding out her hand.
“Regan Shaw,” she told him. “I’m happy to meet you. I understand we’re going to be married?”
Max nearly swallowed his tongue while Si just laughed out loud.
“Your wife’s not shy,” he joked.
“I see that.” Max held her hand perhaps a shade longer than he should. It was firm, and there was strength in her grip, but the skin was soft. Enticing.
Jesus, Max. Get a grip, and not on her hand. Or any other part of her body.
He released it and took a step back, just as the front door opened again and two more men entered the house.
“We having a party?” he asked Si under his breath.
“If only. Come on. Let me introduce you to the rest of the crew.”
Desiree Holt. SEAL Undercover (Kindle Locations 417-421). Kindle Edition.
In spite of Max almost swallowing his tongue, they manage to go over the mission and what intel they have on all the players.
The vetting process with one of the chief players is intense and everywhere they turn is bugged.
I couldn’t put this book down, as tensions rise between all the players. The attraction between Regan and Max is explosive to say the least, it was fun watching them try to control themselves until they don’t.
Lots going on in this book as Max, Regan and their team work to shut down this massive plan.
Entertaining, suspenseful with hold your breath scenes and plenty of simmer to sizzle.
