Kiss The Enemy by Dianna Love – a Review
Her only hope is in the hands of her enemy.
Slye Temp operative Margaux Duke is chasing an international terrorist who murdered the last of her family. But her plans go up in smoke when her agency is in the crosshairs of the dangerous killer, forcing her to turn rogue to protect the only family she has left – her team. This is no time to get involved, especially with an enemy who steps between her and the terrorist she has to stop.
Logan Baklanov has been known by many names in the underbelly of international terrorism and will do whatever it takes to shield those he loves from the treacherous world he lives in. When his brother’s life is in jeopardy, Logan takes on a role that places him at the top of the most-wanted lists of government security agencies in every country. He accepts the no-win situation, willing to make the ultimate sacrifice until a long legged beauty draws the attention of his deadly target and screws Logan’s carefully planned mission.
Margaux and Logan must join forces in a dangerous game to save a major city from a powerful psychopath, but their ruse escalates out of control when the heat smoldering between them threatens to explode.
Kiss the Enemy by Dianna Love is the 4th book in her wonderful Slye Temp Series. This is such a fantastic series, with each book being a thrill a minute, as well as having a fabulously hot couple. Once again, Dianna Love outdoes herself with Kiss the Enemy, which I finished in less than a day. The only thing that interrupted me was things I had to do, and as soon as I finished, I hurried back to read this exciting book that I could not pull away from.
If you have not read my previous reviews, Slye Temp is an agency the does covert operations to help the government against terrorists type of activity. Sabrina Slye is the leader, and she is an awesome one at that. I look forward to one day her story. But in Kiss the Enemy, our heroine is Margaux, who works for Sabrina, and is one of her best agents. Margaux though has a hidden past, that cannot be revealed, as it would mean her sure death. Sabrina is the one who saved her, and trained to be one of her Ops.
But awhile ago Margaux’s cousin was murdered by a villain named the Banker, and she has blamed herself for her cousin’s death. Margaux has since been on a vendetta to find him and kill him. Sabrina has warned her that she is putting the team at risk. The book picks up with the team on an assignment based on Margaux’s info from her main source. The Op goes bad, and Sabrina plans on removing her from the team, but into a safe house. Before this could happen, Margaux gets a tip that the Banker is in the states and this is her chance to find him, and at the same time protect her Slye Temp team. So she runs away.
This is just the beginning of the book, so I am not giving spoilers. But believe me, once I finished the first chapter, I was totally hooked, and needed to find out what happens next. It is at a party, where Margaux is in disguise as a hooker; she meets Dragan (aka Logan), a known mercenary, who is also at the party to meet the Banker. From here on in, the excitement level escalates to so many thrilling moments, as the two of them work close together to survive. Do they trust each other? …not really. Is there chemistry between them? Whew..enough to steam up your e-reader (or the mirror in your room). I loved both Margaux and Logan together. They fought; they worked together; they killed to survive; they schemed; and they had hot steamy sex. Logan had his own team, and I would love to learn more about them too.
I will not tell you too much more, as I do not want to spoil things. This was such a fantastic story, that I could not get enough of, as I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. The suspense was palpitating, as they found themselves in danger so many times, and the story was full of surprises with so many twists along the way.
I have said this before, and I will repeat. Dianna Love writes stories that are exciting, action packed, suspenseful, sexy, and totally pulls you into every page of the book. One of the main things about this series, is the fabulous characters she creates. I love the Slye Temp team, as each series the couples are fabulous. I love Sabrina, even if she is not the main character in each book, she is tough, smart, savvy, intensely loyal, and a very important part of the main theme of this series. To prove how well Dianna creates these awesome characters is that she brought in a different team (Logan’s) and we found ourselves loving them too. I want more of them all.
Please please Dianna, keep on writing this series, and giving us more of these fabulous characters, whom we have grown to love. If you love well written books, that are exciting, on the edge of your seat suspense, non-stop action, characters you care about, fun and hot steamy sex; then look no further than Dianna Love and her Slye Temp series.
