Action, adventure and romance
“I’m sending you a girl.”
“She needs sorting
out. I’m talking
Exit Strategy. That’s what we call
deprogramming these days. You might call it brainwashing. It’s one of my
skills. Give me a man whose idea of heaven is a suicide vest, and I can turn
him into a peace loving hippy wannabe.
“She’s a white widow?”
“No. Human trafficking victim turned sex slave and mule. She’s a fucking mess.”
Christ, poor little bint. Now I knew why Suarez was calling me.
“Mac” Mackenzie, covert operations expert, is all
set for an undercover job when an old friend lands him with
Pepper, a human trafficking victim of a Moroccan-Turkish crime syndicate.
Unable to turn her away, Mac now has two missions: to infiltrate a terrorist
training camp in the Sahara and to become a Master for Pepper.
Warning: contains graphic violence and sex.

About The Author
AJ Adams is a Scottish-Dutch author currently living in Malaysia. In her regular life she has been a columnist and feature writer for the last 20 years or so, selling over 3000 articles in more than 20 countries. She’s currently finishing a Masters in Counseling because having one life seems too tame. She loves cats and cooking and hates traffic jams and doing paperwork.
I love the hard lead male roles in the stories this author writes. The darker types with a soft spot for their partnering female characters make for an interesting read to say the least. Although Mac may not be quite the bad guy portrayed in AJ’s other stories, he still has no problem doing whatever is necessary to get the job done.
I enjoyed how things build up and work out between Mac and Pepper. So much so, that at times I wished the descriptions were more focused on the characters and less of the accompanying mission related information. Pepper starts as a broken woman who finds it hard to trust Mac’s kindness, but finishes as a stronger more confident one. Mac isn’t perfect, but he does what is needed to show Pepper that part of her life was gone and he is here now.
This book has excitement, romance, and keeps you turning pages for more. This is a great standalone read. You’re definitely going to want to add this one to your book shelf.
