They can't deny the heat-it's the only thing keeping them alive.

A distracted soldier is a dead solder. That's special operative Trey Williams' motto. The last thing he needs in his life is a girlfriend. Problem is, the woman who's been recruited to pose as his wife on a special assignment is proving to be exactly the kind of distraction he can't afford.

Years ago, Carly McAfee turned her back not only on her military career, but the men who come with it. So why did she say yes to a mission that puts her in intimate contact with Trey, under 24/7 surveillance by both bad guys and good? One slip, and they're both dead. It's not long, though, before her body betrays her, followed closely by her heart.

With a terrorist arms deal going down and missing teammate's life on the line, Carly and Trey must throw caution to the wind in the scorching-hot performance of their lives-and try not to lose their hearts and minds in the process.

This book has been previously published and has been revised and expanded from its original release.

Warning: Contains bad men with big guns and video cameras, and an unmarried couple who need to get naked and get busy acting very married to save both their country and their lives.

Why I Read this Book: It was a free Kindle book and would you just look at that cover!

What I Liked: There’s a bit of a love triangle going on in this book and I really wanted to find out how it was going to work out. Trey’s best friend, Jack, had eyes on Carly first. For 2 years Jack had been trying to get Carly to go out on a date with him but she’s set on her ‘no dating military men’ rule. She’s been burned in the past and she doesn’t want it to happen again. I thought the love triangle was handled pretty well and realistically.

Trey’s a good man. Carly wasn’t on his radar because his best buddy had dibs on her. He’s not a womanizer or a player and that was nice to see.

The ‘performance’ scene was hot! And what comes shortly after the lights are off was not expected but whoa!

What I Didn’t Like: I don’t know how likely it is for this sort of mission to take place. The circumstance Trey and Carly was put in was realistic but how it plays out is a bit crazy.

Memorable Moment:

“Well, if you ask me, it’s a damn shame to throw out the whole pie just because the crust got a little burnt."

Overall Impression: Trey had an unusual circumstance but it worked for me. It was a fun and quick read and even though it’s only about 90 pages, I was happy with the way things concluded. I’ll be checking out this author’s backlist.
