Canada is probably the last place you'd expect to find an American spy. But even idyllic Ottawa has its deadly secrets--and so does CIA operative Talia Reynolds. She can climb through ventilation shafts, blend in at the occasional diplomatic function, even scale buildings (small ones). But there's one thing she can’t do: tell her aerospace engineer boyfriend Danny about her Top Secret occupation.

It worked for a year, keeping Danny in the dark, keeping him away from danger, keeping her secrets. And then Talia finally catches a hot case: Fyodor Timofeyev. Russian. Aerospace executive. Possible spy?

She can make this work, too--until Danny needs her at the same time her country does. And when Fyodor targets Danny? Suddenly her schedule isn't the only thing suffering. Now to save her country and her secrets, Talia must sacrifice the man she loves.

Ooh, ooh, I really liked this book!  :)

This book is told in the first person and it really felt like my best girlfriend was just telling me a fantastic story.  It was personal and witty and it just felt real.

Talia is tough but she has a big heart.  She tries really hard to take care of the people that are important to her.  Her job as a CIA operative is dangerous and requires her complete attention but it is also a secret she can't share with her boyfriend which of course, leads to just a few bumps in the road of love.

Poor Danny in the dark.  Poor Talia that has to keep him there.  She literally fights to the bitter end to keep him safely away from the truth.  Really.  That poor Danny.  He sure is left to conjure up some awful things with his limited knowledge.

I was hooked on this book from the very beginning.  It moved along at a great pace and my interest and attention never waned.  I loved the action and intrigue.  It was just so fun and I'm excited to read more by Jordan McCollum.

I do believe that this book is classified as Romantic Suspense.  The main characters are both LDS but there isn't anything preachy found in this book at all.  The main character mentions a few LDS specific rules (like no drinking alcohol) but nothing more.  It is a clean read though which was very happy for me.
