Forced Alliance by Lenora Worth


By-the-book FBI agent Josie Gilbert has no business falling for her confidential informant, but she can't walk away. She needs this case—her career needs this case. And suave thief turned FBI asset Connor Randall is too deep in the mob syndicate to pull out now. But when the crime boss they are trying to take down becomes a target himself, Josie is forced to take Connor into hiding without blowing his cover. Now, dodging hit men and fighting a perilous attraction, she has to make a life-and-death decision. Can she trust the man who has stolen her heart…or is he working one last con?

My Thoughts:
I really enjoyed this book.  Josie was put into a spot when her informant, Connor, helped out the man he was supposed to be bringing.  Connor hadn't thought twice about helping the crime boss when the need arose.  The problem was now, he had Josie undercover with him and there were literally bombs going off around them.  Keeping them both alive was a priority but Josie didn't think she could trust Connor, no matter how attractive she found him.  Connor needs Josie's trust to keep them alive and find out who is behind everything.
I've liked Connor since he was introduced in another book.  He is a good guy/bad guy.  Working for the FBI while living with the criminals.  A fine line for a man to walk, but he wants his sister to be proud of him.  Josie has had issues in the past with her job and she needs the job as Connor's handler to go smoothly.  The attraction between the two of them was there from the start but the trust held it back.  I thought the plot flowed well and really enjoyed some of the characters that got introduced throughout!
I rate this a 5/5.  I completely enjoyed the book.
