Georgia doubted she had the patience for one more posh D C assignment. Kidnappers, stalkers, and political plots she could handle. Yappy dogs, Shopping trips to the Circle, and the carefully pinned and tucked exteriors of DC’s political housewives made her twitchy. According to ethan it wasn’t enough for Georgia to keep her clients alive and well. She needs them to like her. Ethan made it clear if she couldn’t make a personal connection with her next assignment she’d be looking for a new job. Georgia used to feel like her job mattered, like the people she worked with made a difference in the world.or Ethan could put her in the office but Georgia didn’t want that.  Georgia hoped Ethan would tell her how will died. There is so much she didn’t know and the Department Of Defense wouldn’t say. So much Ethan wouldn’t tell her. Georgia wasn’t so sure she liked her job now but she needed it.Ethan said they both knew she was an asset to the firm in terms of technical skills she was one of his best operatives.Georgia knew Ethan had been hired because of her dead brother Will.

Usually ethan sent her a dossier : photos, addresses, schedules and contacts- details about the job. This time she was given she was babysitting a nerd who wasn’t exactly housebroken” whatever that meant. Ethan also said Parker was a little.. Different. Had his own schedule, his own method of doing things. He was also adamant he didn’t need private security. Ethan also said he was limited to what he could say.

I loved this book. I felt it was well written. I was drawn in by the first few pages and stayed that way until the end of this book. I laughed at times while reading this book. I loved the plot and pace. Georgia and Parker definitely had hot chemistry. I loved Georgia and parker together and how they interacted. I loved the role reversal also- a female protecting the male. I did feel we were given too much information on Parker’s invention yet this was still a five rating for me. I loved the action, action and suspense in this book. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I highly recommend it.
