Shattered Duty by Katie Reus


 A new novel from the author of Bound to Danger who “has the amazing ability of pulling the reader onto the front lines of the action and drama.” (The Reading Café)

When his wife was murdered two years ago, Special Agent Levi Lazaro turned his back on everything he cared about. Ever since, he has thought of nothing but vengeance. Now he's finally uncovered the identities of those who killed his wife—and he's ready to destroy them at any cost. He won’t let anything stand in his way—not even a beautiful NSA agent on a mission of her own.

Special Agent Selene Wolfe prides herself on being the best. Her fearlessness and quick-thinking make her the perfect person to take down a deadly terrorist cell. But she needs Levi’s help, and the moment he shows up, Selene knows her objectivity—and her heart—are in trouble.

As the two strike an uneasy alliance, Levi finds himself tormented by his desire for Selene—a feeling he thought long dead. But when their mission takes an unexpected turn, he finds himself faced with an impossible choice: either put aside his need for revenge, or save the woman who’s reawakened his soul…
My Review: 5 Stars!!

Holy smokes.... just.... WOW. This book was amazing! It was a thrill ride of emotion from the first page to the last! Katie Reus is the absolute, and I mean ABSOLUTE master of romantic suspense. 

Levi's wife was brutally murdered two years prior and he has gone off the "reservation" to hunt down the men who killed his wife and unborn child. He is consumed with revenge and has been working undercover to set up a meeting with the man directly responsible for her death all while trying to stay under the radar of the NSA. 

Selene has been working for the NSA since she was recruited as a young age for her unique computer skills. She is an expert hacker, sniper and all around bad ass (love these kind of heroines) She is sent in to infiltrate a terrorist cell and locate a missing scientist that has ties to Levi's deceased wife. When she runs into Levi at the meeting she decides to work with him instead of turning him over to her boss.

I loved the chemistry between these two! Despite their instant attraction to each other they are both wary of fully trusting each other. Selene wants to help Levi but she can't let him jeopardize her mission for revenge otherwise thousands of people could die. Levi is wracked with guilt over the feelings that he has for Selene but can't deny his attraction to her. Poor Levi, he has some serious inner demons to deal with and my heart broke for the pain that he was going through. Selene was smart, funny, and the perfect complement to Levi, she understood his pain and sympathized with his need for vengeance.  

Shattered Duty was an emotionally intense, action packed story that had me sitting on the edge of my seat not knowing what would come next! And the ending? OMG! I seriously broke down and cried! This is book three in the Deadly Ops series and can easily read as a stand alone. I absolutely recommend this to any fans of steamy, romantic suspense reads.
