Laney is living in Thailand, on the run from her psychopathic ex who has sent his goons after her to bring her back to the U.S. She meets Macmillan, a linguistics professor lecturing in Bangkok. They are immediately and intensely attracted to each other. We learn almost from the beginning that Laney is being set up by people she trusts. And Macmillan is a lot more than a linguistics prof. He’s also a secret agent with the Association, a secret, high-level security group devoted to stopping the auction of a laser weapon of mass destruction.

Both Laney and Macmillan are wounded from earlier life experiences. She tends to be naïve but also brave. He’s an intellectual who is also a killer. Their steam turns into real love and a chance for a new life. His ventures into language, the stuff of linguistics, are actually very interesting and made me wonder if there are people out there now tracking down terrorists using his methods. The romance is super steamy. Even better is the suspense. There were passages in the book that were so suspenseful than I ended up reading page after page when I was supposed to be working! This book won the 2014 RITA Best Romantic Suspense award. The award is well-deserved. ( )

Laney and Maxwell (Peter)
Very good story on top of the slow building romance. I love these Associates books! ( )

Overall Rating: 4.50
Story Rating: 4.50
Character Rating: 4.50

Audio Rating: 4.00

First Thought when Finished: Off the Edge by Carolyn Crane was unique, full of suspense, and I really liked Mac and Laney to boot!

Overall Thoughts

1: Laney, Laney, Laney--you were a totally unique leading lady. Smart, sassy, but also a little dense. I don't know why but that made me love you!
2: Mac! I would seriously let you dissect my linguistics anytime :)
3: Setting--Holy Globe-Trotting! These men are just stirring up trouble and/or fixing problems all over the place. Rather impressed.
4: (I have already read book 3) This is my favorite book in the series so far by just a smidge and that is all Laney.
5: Love when a person in a story can go through the grinder and still see good in life! LOVE THAT!

Audio Thoughts

Narrated by: Romy Nordlinger /Length: 9 hrs and 59 mins / Publisher: Tantor Audio

Romy is a solid narrator that I can count on to deliver a story. She has the ability to capture and enhance a character through pacing and attitude. That came in especially handy with Laney. Overall she does a great job!

ABOUT THE BOOK:

SHE MAY BE HIS WORST ENEMY…
For deadly secret agent Peter Macmillan, language is a weapon—one he uses to hunt criminals, destroy plots, and charm enemies. Seducing information out of a beautiful singer in Bangkok hotel should be easy…except this particular singer has the power to destroy his cool façade, and with it, his last defense against a dark past.

HE MAY BE HER ONLY HOPE…
He tricked her. He helped himself to her body and her secrets. He has enemies everywhere. Laney Lancaster should hate Peter, but when she discovers him shirtless, sweaty, and chained up in the hotel’s dungeon, all she can think about is freeing him. Because she knows what it’s like to be trapped and alone. And she could use a dangerous friend.

They may be wrong for each other, but the instant they join forces, Laney and Peter are plunged into an odyssey of hot sex and dark danger. To survive, they must trust each other with their lives—and their hearts.

MY REVIEW:

Peter and Laney are two characters that keep you on the edge of your seat. This story was hot, gripping, and so sweet, I find that writing an indepth review is proving to be hard. I don’t want to give anything away, so I’ll say this … be prepared to be shocked and get your copy now! ( )
