Gemma Falls never expected to use her game theory expertise to outrun a killer. But for years, that skill is all that kept her one step ahead of a deadly stalker. When Gemma gets the chance to teach at D.C. University, she hopes she and her young daughter have found a safe harbor. The only flaw is the arrogant philosophy professor who’s always underfoot giving unwanted advice—in his sexy British accent . . .

Jethro Hanson has blood on his hands. He’s working within ivy-covered university halls now, but he knows that his work with the Deep Ops team and the deadly acts he once committed for the sake of Queen and country place him beyond forgiveness—until he meets Gemma . . .

Soon, the passion between them stuns them both. But when Jethro discovers a threat is fast overtaking her, he must choose between the redemption he seeks—and releasing the ever-present killer inside . . .


This is the fifth standalone in one of my favorite romantic suspense series. I love the motley crew in this unit and cannot get enough of them. If you love the genre or are curious, this is the series to try. It has swoons, humor, friendship, HEAs and plenty of suspense.

Jethro Hanson, has worked for Queen and country and now works as a college professor and has aided our Deep Ops team. When one of his colleagues takes a sabbatical on short notice, he worries, but her replacement has him worried more. Something is off with Gemma Falls and mishaps keep happening to her. As he befriends her, he thinks this mischief is caused by his past….but quickly learns it’s hers.

This was another delightful, intense and swoon-worthy tale. From Gemma’s background to MI6, I was all in. We get to see our alcohol loving pup and the rest of the gang. It was great seeing them coordinate and work together. The updates, banter, and food talk all added to the tale.

The story touches on domestic abuse, stalking and more. As always, the author has done her research and delivers an air of believability to her story.

Zanetti has created something special with the Deep Ops Series and I am always ready for more. Fans of humor, teams, romance, and plenty of suspense will love this unit FBI unit.
