This week’s podcast is being brought to you by Fallen by Rebecca Zanetti – and prepare your catnip bingo cards for the following description.
Bestselling author Rebecca Zanetti’s second Deep Ops, Fallen is “sharp and dynamic” raves the New York Times. Brimming with action, suspense and sensual tension, a talented hacker-turned-security consultant and her FBI-appointed bodyguard must fake an engagement in order to clear her father’s name from a high-profile mob scandal.
Too quiet. A talented hacker who got caught, Brigid Banaghan is now forced to work with a secret Deep Ops unit. But she won’t reveal any more to these renegade Feds than she has to. Especially not to Raider Tanaka, her control freak of a bodyguard and handler. It’s enough that his body is tensed for action and his heated gaze is always on her.
Too sharp. Raider knows there’s more to his new assignment than he’s been told. Why send a deadly agent of his experience to guard a computer genius—even a gorgeous, unpredictable, undisciplined one? But when Brigid’s estranged father is named in an investigation into Boston’s organized crime, Raider’s mind switches onto high alert, just like his senses.
Too close. To clear her father’s name, Brigid needs Raider’s help. The Unit’s idea that she bring a straight-laced Fed in as her “fiancé” won’t fly, though—not unless Raider can release his inner bad boy and become the rebel Brigid can’t resist…
