I love books about married couples and second chance romance so Man Down by Misty Evans was such a treat for me! And married spies? Yes, please!

Man Down features Aidan and Bree, both former spies and an estranged couple. Bree is trying to convince Aidan to leave her uncle’s spa as head of security to work for Shadow Force International, hoping it will get her back in good graces with her boss. But, that task is proving harder than anticipated. Aidan is working on some other plans of his own and always trying to keep Bree safe in the process.

Man Down went fast for me. I found myself flipping pages and getting caught up in Aidan and Bree’s story, trying to figure out what would happen. I didn’t trust anyone around them. My favorite part was when Bree tried to pull a fast one over on Aidan and he was expecting it. I love how much they could read each other. I loved their chemistry together and sure hope to see more of them in future books.

If you are looking for a romantic suspense story that will have you turning pages, falling in love, and on the edge of your seat, give Man Down a read.

Man Killer by Misty Evans is the second book in the Spies of Shadow Force series. If you like spies and romance, give this series a read. Man Killer features Mick and Cassandra, two unlikely spies. Mick is a SEAL recently rescued from prison by Shadow Force and Cassandra is Shadow Force’s chief operating officer and attorney. Together they are thrown into the world of espionage in order to save the world.

My favorite character of the story was probably Cassie. She is a serious person who wants to do her job well and open up her own law firm. She wants to ignore her attraction to Mick for fear of it messing with her life plan. Luckily her heart guides her on this mission and she can’t help but fall in love with him. Mitch isn’t too shabby either. He isn’t too sure of Beatrice and is skeptical he will ever join her team, but he understands when to step up for his country and for innocent humans around the world.

The best scenes were the ones where Cassie found her confidence and took control of situations whether it was when she was acting as her undercover character or just during the quiet moments with Mick.

Evans always writes great action scenes and the ones in Man Killer are no exception. They had my heart beating rapidly, flipping pages, and wondering how in the world everyone was going to get out alive! So, if you are looking for an entertaining romantic suspense book to read, give Man Killer a try!

Review: DEADLY RESCUE by Misty Evans and Amy Manemann

If you love romantic suspense and babies, give Deadly Rescue by Misty Evans and Amy Manemann a read! Weird combination, right? Well, not for the Southern California Violent Crimes Taskforce. Cooper, Celina, Nelson, and Sophie were expecting a weekend of training for the SCVC Taskforce group and relaxation for Sophie, 36 weeks pregnant with twins.

Evans and Manemann wouldn’t let us just enjoy the intimacy between power couple Cooper and Celina or the newish love between Nelson and pregnant Sophie. Nope, they like to throw in a little danger. What happens when a training exercise turns real?

I have enjoyed this series from the beginning and the novellas like Deadly Rescue that are quick reads, still pick a punch and include everything the full length novels do – edge of your seat action, dreamy romance, off the charts chemistry, and a plot that has you wondering what will happen next. I highly recommend Deadly Rescue to any romantic suspense fan!

Review: MAN HUNT by Misty Evans

Man Hunt by Misty Evans is the first in the Spies of Shadow Force series as they form their Nemesis group. It’s fantastic! I am a big fan of anything spy-related so I was glad to see a series like this get started. Evans writes spies so incredibly well.

Ryker and Mia are such interesting characters from the beginning. They both have their secrets, but what spy doesn’t? Evans knows how to pull at a reader’s heartstrings, even when she writes big bad spies and SEALs. Just add in an adorable little boy and a dog who wants to be loved. 

Ryker and Mia are forced to work together to bring down an international criminal under the newly formed Nemesis division of Shadow Force International. What makes this story so interesting is that it is Mia’s first undercover operation and she and Ryker have only just met in person a days before they embark on the mission There are a lot of things that can go wrong. Will they get the job done? 

What did I like most about Man Hunt? The different plots that unfolded throughout the story. The overall mission was fresh and new as was going with Mia on her first mission. The romance between Ryker and Mia that developed was fun because they had to pose as a married couple. Evans writes some hilarious scenes between the two and also some very touching ones. I laughed a lot, I yelled a few times, and I felt my heart speed up with action and suspense. In the end, I finished the story with so much hope and a full heart. I can’t wait to read another Spies of Shadow Force book!

Get ready to hold on for this blockbuster of a hit with Deadly Target by Misty Evans. I know this book isn’t on the big screen but it sure should be. I felt like I just watched an intense movie that had me covering my eyes at some scenes and yelling at the characters during another. Evans delivers an emotional, complex, exhilarating story that will have you glued to the pages so you don’t miss a thing. In addition to all the betrayal that is going on in Deadly Target, we are also in the midst of a passionate love story between the two main characters…and perhaps another. It’s got everything I love in a good book.

When I have to set a book down because a scene is just about to get real and my emotions can’t quite handle the upcoming action or raw emotion, I consider it a job well done. The fact that Deadly Target could affect my emotions to the point I had to take a break, speaks volumes of Evans’ story telling ability. I love that I am affect physically when I read this book. Deadly Target made heart beat quicker, tears in my eyes threaten to overflow because of what I was reading. It’s that good.

Victor Dupe is the Director of the west coast FBI and Olivia Fiorelli is a US Marshal, who introduced to us in Deadly Holiday. They are a couple that you instantly love from the beginning. Their interactions are easy going and the chemistry is off the charts between these two. Evans does a fantastic job with their love story and I am so glad that Victor finally gets his love story!

If you are looking for an intriguing, sexy, romantic suspense, give Deadly Target a read. It stands alone, so if you haven’t read any of the other SCVC Taskforce books, you won’t be missing anything. And if you have read the other books in the series, you definitely won’t want to miss this one!
