This is how romantic suspense should be done! I was lost in the intense action, but the romance was always present. Which is important because I lose interest quickly if there’s no love story.
In the first pages of this book, we’re told there is a mole in the CIA. As we listen in on a meeting between a few people who know of the problem, we learn how deep the mole problem goes.
I’m going to be honest, I’m not sure how to review this. I don’t read books like this often. Typically, I stick to contemporary romance – just romance. There was so much suspense in this book and so many twists and turns.
Just when I thought things would be ok something else happened, or we were given another piece of information that turned everything around. I’m not sure how I can talk about the plot without spoilers and no one likes spoilers.
Both Anderson and Carol were well-developed and complex characters. I enjoyed seeing their relationship develop. We are also treated to glimpses into the moles head. It took a bit for me to get used to as I like my dual perspectives. However, once I got used to it I found it to be a valuable addition to the story.
Overall Assassin Games was an engaging read that had me sitting at the edge of my seat and biting my fingernails in nervous anticipation.
