Desperate Deeds by Dee Davis

Book Description:
As the demolitions expert for A-Tac, a black-ops CIA unit masquerading as Ivy League faculty, Tyler Hanson has two great loves: literature and explosives. She lives by the motto "Duty First" and doesn't have time for personal attachments . . . until a steamy one-night stand turns into a professional partnership.

When Tyler meets Owen Wakefield, a handsome British operative, she seduces him with no intention of ever seeing him again. But then the sexy Brit is brought into A-Tac, and despite Tyler's efforts to keep her distance, she finds herself falling for him. Trusting him.

Owen seems too good to be true - and he is. He's hiding his true motives and identity, and no matter how he feels about Tyler, he can't keep her secrets. One of A-Tac's members has turned traitor and helped terrorists to hijack a shipment of nuclear weapons. As witnesses start dying and evidence starts disappearing, Owen and Tyler must race to find the mole - and prevent a final, cataclysmic act of destruction.

My Thoughts:
I very much enjoyed this book. Tyler is the A-Tac team's explosives expert and a literature professor. Owen is a pseudo MI-5 agent, he is Tyler's 'one night stand'. He is trying to catch whoever is selling out the US and British governments and specifically who on the A-Tac Team is a traitor, with Tyler as the main suspect. They soon have to trust each other to find the traitor and keep everyone alive.
I love how the book starts out with action. From the very beginning it catches your attention and doesn't let go until the last page! The relationship between Tyler and Owen is white hot! They have such chemistry in their physical relationship as well as their working relationship. The twists in this book are great and the trust between the A-Tac members is so real! I completely enjoyed it.
I rate this book 4.5/5. It is a great read and part of a wonderful series!
