About the Book
As the demolitions expert for A-Tac, a black-ops CIA unit masquerading as Ivy League faculty, Tyler Hanson has two great loves: literature and explosives. She lives by the motto "Duty First" and doesn't have time for personal attachments . . . until a steamy one-night stand turns into a professional partnership.
BURNED BY BETRAYAL
When Tyler meets Owen Wakefield, a handsome British operative, she seduces him with no intention of ever seeing him again. But then the sexy Brit is brought into A-Tac, and despite Tyler's efforts to keep her distance, she finds herself falling for him. Trusting him.
Owen seems too good to be true - and he is. He's hiding his true motives and identity, and no matter how he feels about Tyler, he can't keep her secrets. One of A-Tac's members has turned traitor and helped terrorists to hijack a shipment of nuclear weapons. As witnesses start dying and evidence starts disappearing, Owen and Tyler must race to find the mole - and prevent a final, cataclysmic act of destruction.

I really liked this one. There was so much going on it kept me turning the pages. Right of the bat the story gets going and it doesn't really slow down.
I liked Tyler, she was tough (very tough) but she was also still a woman and had a softer side to her. There were a few times when she would do something uncharacteristic and she would think to herself "There's the woman in me." I also liked Owen, I had a picture of Sean Connery as James Bond for him. I think that comes from the fact that Tyler kept comparing him to James Bond, and since Sean is my favorite Bond that's who I picture. Very Sexy :-)
Like I said the story is very fast paced. The writing is really good, I could get lost into this one. In my head it played out like a movie, I could see everything in the settings. The writing was so good that the descriptions really brought everything to life. Normally when I read it's more of an emotional connection and I only picture the character that's being described, not the entire scene. But with this one I had everything in the images in my head. It really makes it seem less like I'm reading and more like I'm watching a movie.
I liked the A-Tac "hiding" place. It was really neat that the group runs a college to keep their true purpose hidden. I thought that was a really neat twist. The first time Tyler is on campus I couldn't figure out why, but when Davis explains it I really got into the idea.
I will have to pick up more of Dee Davis' books. And since this was part of a series I think I'll have to start with the first two installments. I really got drawn into this one!
