A forbidden FBI romance, a wedding that never happens, and the tragedy that changes them forever.
The moment Chloe Romano meets Liam Esposito, sparks flare like lightning between them. But the handsome stranger disappears without so much as asking for her number. Shaking off her disappointment, Chloe continues on to the Quantico Training Academy with her best friend Jenna so they can pursue their life-long dream of becoming FBI agents.
Once she begins training, Chloe is shocked to find herself face to face with Liam again. But the more time they spend together, the harder they fall for one another, and the more frustrated they become with the FBI rules and protocols that keep them apart.
Just when Chloe begins to hope they can have something more than a professional relationship, a covert mission goes wrong, blowing her entire world apart, and changing the course of their future forever. Can Chloe and Liam overcome the terrible secrets that keep them apart, or will their love be destroyed forever during the night of the bombing raid?
This is the story of Chloe and Liam and ends on a bit of a cliffhanger. Read the rest of their story in THE UNDERCOVER BRIDESMAID.

** spoiler alert ** I read the next book in the series before this one so I knew how this one would end. On the one hand I wish I hadn’t known but on the other I’m glad I did or it would have been a very shocking ending. Not exactly your HEA ending… If you read this one, plan on reading the next because you need the whole story to get that HEA. I would kinda prefer it to be all one book but I’m not sure that the prequel was intended from the start. I think that was readers demand to know what had happened. I could be wrong. And I think the title of this book is a little deceptive.
I loved the way Liam responded as a trainer in a supportive manner. And the banter between Liam and Chloe was pretty fun. Maybe because we don’t know much about his interactions with other NATS but I thought that it would be pretty obvious to anyone who paid any attention that there was some energy between the two of them.
I liked this book but I did wonder at the two main characters risking their goals/jobs in order to spend time together. Their relationship was pretty much insta-love or at least insta-attraction with love following quickly behind. I personally had a hard time relating to Chloe simply because I have no love of guns and would have absolutely no desire to be an FBI agent. I can appreciate the work the FBI does but I think I only think of them in place in their jobs and don’t think about what they thought or felt before they got to that point. Or that they thought guns were such great things. But I’m not a gun lover at all. Still I could appreciate the story.
