My review ♥♥♥♥♥
You can’t call yourself a real reader if you don’t vary your readings a bit, and this thriller is perfect for relaxing.
The book is well written, and the story keeps you on the edge of your seat.
Let’s start with Isabella Wirth, who works for a military base as a breaker code. Her boss sends her on a mission asking her to seduce a man, Tom Grant. And entertain him until reinforcements arrive to capture him because he is a threat to national security.
Tom, he’s working undercover, and he’s in that hotel to protect Isabella.
But how? Wasn’t that a threat to national security?
The more the story goes on, the more intriguing it gets. Lies, twists, and discoveries that the author makes you do little by little makes reading very enjoyable.
It’s just brilliant, especially when we get to know Isabella for real and her Blood Orphan past.
Despite being haunted by a traumatic past due to a Blood Orphan, Tom must follow orders and protect her.
When the past of both begins to hunt them down, what will happen? Will they be able to work as a team?
I can’t help but repeat it; this book is brilliant. I recommend reading it because it will keep you glued to the pages from start to end.
