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.

If you enjoy romantic suspense you might also enjoy Total Bravery or Moonlight Seduction.
