Book review:First Temptation (Covert Affairs #1.5) by Joan Swan
Available August 19th 2013
Counterterrorist agent Taft Walker knows the Mexican cartel smuggling game. But posing as part owner of an adult store to ferret out the newest tunnel into the US is a first. So is Zoe Brooks, his partner, new to undercover and a sex-toy virgin. Taft’s up for the sexy challenge. At least until he sees the real Zoe beneath her tough façade and realizes, for the first time in his life, he’ll have to risk his heart to win.
After the death of a teammate, Border Patrol Agent Zoe Brooks is ready to get off the front lines. She’s willing to tolerate a swaggering partner like Taft for a chance to work investigations with ICE. But she’s not prepared for the way he understands her deepest, sexiest desires. Or the fact that she’ll have to break her own rules to grab hold of the passion she’s always wanted.
Note: Also appears in the anthology Wicked Firsts
This is a short 160 page novella and it's packed with action right from the first page. Zoe Brooks is ready for something different and she's put in for a transfer months ago. Finally she gets the call right after a hard night catching baddies on the border which ends up with her pretty banged up and almost killed. When she meets with her possible new boss and the guy she's going to have to work with on her first assignment sparks fly. Not even the good kind. At least not at first. Taft Walker is a bad ass that knows his way around under cover work and Mexican smuggling. His first thought when he sees Zoe is no way. She's a girl and not much to look at. Once she starts stripping off the bulky ugly border patrol uniform well then perhaps she does have the goods for this operation and more. lol Their first assignment together though is to pose as a couple running a sex shop. Things start getting pretty hot from there on out. It takes a while but Zoe proves she can handle the job and Taft finds that Zoe knows what she's doing. In between the job though that also learn something about themselves and who they are. A sexy little read filled with passion, action kick ass characters. 5 out of 5 stars for First Temptation by Joan Swan.
