ARC Review: Deep Cover by Scarlett Cole

Deep Cover
Author: Scarlett Cole
Series: Love Over Duty (Book 3)
Publication: St. Martin's Paperbacks (July 31, 2018)

Description: ARE THEY IN TOO DEEP?

Ex-Navy SEAL Cabe Moss always comes when called to duty―at all costs. Even though the death of his fiancĂ©e nearly destroyed him, Cabe won’t let his past interfere with any work that has to get done. When his latest task pushes him to team up with FBI Agent Amy Murray, a fierce beauty with the undercover skills to match, Cabe must admit that, for the first time in years, he wants to do more than just complete their mission together…

Amy was born ready for this assignment, but working side-by-side with the the strong, silent, and frustratingly professional Cabe seems to be the biggest challenge of all. But when the sparks begin to fly―and the stakes rise to dangerous heights―the only thing Amy is left worrying about ishow she can resist him. Their lives may be in danger, but their hearts hold the biggest risk of all…

My Thoughts: This is the 3rd Love Over Duty romance and is Cabe's story. Cabe is still grieving the loss of his fiance Jess when she was on duty. It has been two years and he is just starting to put the loss behind him. When he meets Amy, he's attracted but guilt has him leave without pursuing the attraction.

Imagine Cabe's surprise when Amy shows up as an FBI agent who is part of an operation which includes money laundering and a bunch of missing women. Amy goes undercover as a dealer in the casino which connects to the missing women to try to see what happened. Cabe is worried about her despite her experience and competence.

Amy recently transferred to the California office after reporting sexual harassment at her previous office in Georgia. She is very attractive. She's worried that her new colleagues will think she was wrong to blow the whistle on her harassing superior.

Cabe and Amy shouldn't begin a relationship both because of their issues but because it could compromise their current operation. But love can't be denied.

The story had enough action and enough romance including hot sexual scenes to keep me reading eagerly. I liked the relationship that Cabe has with the other members of his security firm. I also liked seeing where his two partners were in their romances which each had earlier books of their own.

Fans of romantic suspense will enjoy this one.

Favorite Quote:
The very reason it was beating right now was Amy, and he wanted her to know that Jess was easing into the past. Not in a way that meant she'd be forgotten, but in a way that would enable him to build a new future instead of lamenting the one he'd lost.
I received this one in exchange for an honest review from NetGalley. You can buy your copy here.
