Extreme Measures, Elisabeth Naughton

 

Extreme Measures, Elisabeth Naughton
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews
This book is the first in a new romantic suspense series from Elisabeth. It’s written in her usual tightly plotted style, with numerous twists and turns. So many in fact that I was way off base in my ( ever changing ) guesses at who was behind everything. I loved Zane, he’s so protective of Eve, even when he thinks she may be a traitor. Eve is in love with him, from when they were on a job together a while back and they had a secret hot and heavy fling. She doesn’t want to get her heart broken again though and – very importantly to her – she thinks she’ll bring Zane into danger and that if he knows all that she’s done he’ll turn against her. Better to get out before that happens, so after that last job she stayed out of contact. Now after a job has gone wrong Zane is back in the picture trying to help her, to get the truth from her, but they are both plunged into a nightmare scenario where its clear there’s someone pulling strings but not who…
I love the rapport between Eve and Zane, that he doesn’t get to trust her straight off after all those months of feeling she’s to blame for the last mission. It makes for an edgy relationship where they are both angry with each other, won’t or can’t let the past go, and sexually the attraction between them is visceral and hard to ignore – but they try – for a while…
I enjoyed this, its a great story and as ever I’m awed by how writers pull together such a tight story when the questions raised are myriad. There must be a huge amount of research goes into how diffferent Gov departments work. It’s easy to feel that this could be real – that official bodies take a pragmatic view of lives and do whats most efficient and effective, what will keep their secrets hidden for the good of the whole…
Stars: 4.5. If you like thrillers, you love this fast paced and sensual novel.
