Sometimes, being in the wrong place at the wrong time is where you need to be for the good things in life to fall into place.
Max Brady is a 25 year old, fresh out of college, ambitious woman that doesn't take crap from anyone, and often uses men before tiring and disposing of them. She’s landed her dream job at the internet search engine company Fiddle. Unfortunately, she is stuck working as an assistant to the company’s CEO, but she’s hopeful that if she plays nice, one day she’ll be promoted.
Catch is an assassin. He’s been working this job for twelve years and now with his family taken care of he is ready to retire. All he wants to do is complete his last assignment, collect his large sum of cash, and then disappear to a nice, quiet place in another country.
When Max makes the huge mistake of sleeping with her boss, she decides to copy some files from his computer to hold as leverage in the event that he may try to fire her. Little does she know, the files hold secrets that can take down her boss and the entire Fiddle company.
That decision changes the course of both of their lives.
Catch is hired to kidnap and kill Max, but instead he chooses to save her life. They go on the run as he tries to formulate a plan to remove the hit on Max, because he believes that she was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. As they spend more time together, Catch’s motivation for saving her life changes with his realization that if anything happens to Max he may be unable to live without her.
This book is HEA.

our thoughts

Catch is an seductive romance with a young woman and her hunky assassin. Max is one tough girl. She definitely has a past that no one would envy, but no one can say she doesn't know how to take care of herself. Although, When she take matters into her own hands it lands her right in the middle of a shit storm that she never anticipated. Catch was just looking to complete this last job, and then make a clean break. He finds himself with more than he bargained for when Max ends up as his assignment. Max lucks out when Catch finds himself unable to walk away. Although, his mercy is coming at a price, and each and every day he questions just why he is helping this lady. The romance between these two characters is intimate and forbidden. Readers will hang on the edge of their seats in suspense; just waiting for the moment that they will no longer be able to avoid their feelings. This was not what I would consider the best story that I have read, but it is a wonderfully intense story line with attractive and strong characters. I enjoyed this adventure, and am left with enough anxious intrigue to continue should the author create more to this series.
