Purchase*: Amazon *affiliate
Too quiet. A talented hacker who got caught, Brigid Banaghan is now forced to work with a secret Deep Ops unit. But she won’t reveal any more to these renegade Feds than she has to. Especially not to Raider Tanaka, her control freak of a bodyguard and handler. It’s enough that his body is tensed for action and his heated gaze is always on her . . .
Too sharp. Raider knows there’s more to his new assignment than he’s been told. Why send a deadly agent of his experience to guard a computer genius—even a gorgeous, unpredictable, undisciplined one? But when Brigid’s estranged father is named in an investigation into Boston’s organized crime, Raider’s mind switches onto high alert, just like his senses . . .
Too close. To clear her father’s name, Brigid needs Raider’s help. The Unit’s idea that she bring a straight-laced Fed in as her “fiancé” won’t fly, though—not unless Raider can release his inner bad boy and become the rebel Brigid can’t resist . . .
I am loving the Deep Ops series peeps! There will be danger, swoons, laughter, betrayal, heat, and more. Grab a coffee mocha with sprinkles and see why I recommend it.
Fallen is the second Deep Ops novel featuring a group of misfit operatives in the Homeland Defense Unit run by Force. In this second book we get Brigid and Raider’s story.
Raider Tanaka grew up in foster care until he found a family with Miss A. As a member of Deep Ops they assigned him as Brigid Banaghan handler. He picked the computer hacker up from prison when Force made a deal for her release. He is drawn to the little criminal but when he finds out who her Daddy is his senses go on high alert. I loved the banter and sparks between Raider and Brigid. There is more to Brigid than meets the eye and she’s on a deep op of her own.
Because of the overall ARC, build up, friendships, character development and sheer enjoyment of it, I recommend reading this series in the order of its release. Each book contains a case and a romance with an HEA, but these books are so much more than that. I love the crew, the camaraderie and overall ARC surrounding the HHD and their basement offices.
Brigid’s Dad has former ties to the Irish mob, and the team believes he is active again. Raider goes undercover as her fiancé and all hell breaks loose. This was an action-packed tale. The storyline was well balanced between the romance, case and character growth. We saw development with other team members and I cannot wait for their stories.
Fallen was the perfect blend of romance, humor and action-packed danger. I quickly lost myself within its pages and devoured this over the long weekend. I laughed, held my breath, and swooned.
I cannot wait for the next installment. Go grab Fallen and if you haven’t done so, the first book, Hidden and the novella, Taken.
You are gonna love this motley crew and their romances. Oh and grab a mocha frappe because I guarantee you’ll be craving a sweet coffee drink before the end of chapter one. Fair warning! ?☕️
