HE GETS THE JOB DONE
NO MATTER THE COST.
An assassin . . . that’s what I am.
I’m Wade Chandler by day and a killer at night. I get the job done no matter the cost. Not only do I hunt people for the FBI, but I’m also the owner of Chandler Enterprises, one of the top companies in the southeast.
When Brina Carmichael – daughter of the former president – wants my business advice, it’s hard to resist her long legs and seductive smile. One thing leads to another and now I’m in too deep.
I can’t let her know what I am, but I’ve never wanted a woman the way I want her.
However, harboring secrets comes at a price and I have a feeling she’s keeping some of her own. Especially, when my next mission leads me straight to her. Turns out she’s not who I thought she was.
Standing at the receptionist’s desk, I waited to hear the verdict. Would Wade see me or not? When I heard his answer, I breathed a sigh of relief. I didn’t want my stupidity to ruin my shop’s chances at success.
The receptionist smiled up at me. “You can go back now, Ms. Carmichael. His office is the last one on the right.”
“Thank you,” I replied with a smile of my own.
Pulse pounding in my ears, I walked down the hall to Wade’s office. I had a folder of my designs tucked under my arm. Hopefully, it’d be enough to persuade him. Taking a deep breath, I knocked on his door.
“Come in,” he called out, his voice making me shiver.
I hated how this man made me feel like that. It’d been over a week and I could still feel the way he touched every square inch of my body. I wasn’t a needy woman, but he made me want more. This is business, nothing more.
Head held high, I opened the door. Wade was at his desk, leaning back in his chair, all cool and confident, dressed in his expensive suit with his brown hair perfectly coifed. Definitely not a bundle of nerves, like I was. “Mr. Chandler, it’s good to see you again.”
His brows lifted. “Likewise. Although I’d probably believe it more if you hadn’t run out on me the last time.”
And there it was.
Biting my lip, I shut the door. I couldn’t tell if he was angry, or didn’t care. “Thought I’d save you the trouble,” I confessed. “We both had a little too much to drink that night. And let’s face it, it was either going to be me or you. And I prefer not to be the one left behind.”
“Neither do I,” he said in all seriousness. “So, what brings you here?”

This is a suspense/romance offering and I’m partial to this kind of genre of late. I’m also new to this author and the synopsis peaked my interest so I was keen to jump right in!
Brina Carmichael is the daughter of the President and one night her father is brutally murdered. As you would expect, there are many changes for the former first daughter and she vows nobody will hurt her family again. Her brother is now the President and her fears for his safety are in the forefront of her mind. Brina is a very strong willed lady and runs her own business. It isn’t doing so well and her determination to make it succeed is tenfold so for help she turns to Wade Chandler who she has known since a child. Their fathers were good friends and as he is a successful businessman she thinks he could help her in her hour of need.
Wade Chandler is one hot bachelor who is very much in the public eye especially his trysts with the ladies! Wade is the head of Chandler Enterprises, a position he took when his father retired although his father still takes an interest in the family business.
When Wade is called upon to help Brina he has one heck of a surprise! He hasn’t seen her for years so he is in for quite a surprise. He didn’t quite expect to see such a gorgeous young lady who he finds instantly attractive with long legs to die for. But don’t expect this to be plain sailing as Wade is keeping a big secret!
When the chemistry between the two heats up they embark on what they think is a one night stand because business their number one priority. Mmmmm, well that doesn’t work out too well as they both can’t seem to get enough of each other. They try to hide what is going on but the media are hell-bent on pushing for a news story to connect the two as an item as this would take the most eligible bachelor well and truly off the market. With Wade still keeping his secret this makes things very interesting!
There are plenty of twists and turns in this story which I never saw coming. The story slowly builds but just enough to make you want to keep reading to see where it all goes. As the reader I knew Wade’s secret but I wasn’t expecting another twist too! Wow, it was pretty explosive! This is a very well constructed story which has you hanging on the edge of your seat and keen to know what happens next. The supporting characters are a great compliment to the story, the bodyguards and Brina’s niece, Trinity. I also loved Wade’s brothers as well and I hope we get to see more of these characters in their own stories and also how Wade and Brina are doing with their own lives. Highly recommend this read if you are looking for a great suspense story mixed with romance which also has a great plot to make you say “Wow, I never saw that coming!”
