Elisabeth Naughton is one of our favorite writers. At Gone Readin’ we love it when authors put a new spin on romance and refuse to give us the same regurgitated love stories we’ve already read. What Naughton does best is adding page turning suspense to this very sexy, death-defying read. The entire Aegis Series is off to a fabulous start.

This is the story of Eve Wolfe and Zane Archer who were once lovers, but parted as enemies. Their relationship turned sour when Zane suspected Eve of a most serious betrayal that botched a private security mission for the Aegis Security Team. Zane was seriously injured and many team members lost their lives. Zane is convinced Eve is behind his failed mission, but when reunited they find themselves running for their lives, and named traitors by the CIA. Naughton is a great storyteller and a genius at mixing suspense, romance, and hot sexy scenes. There’s enough believable dialogue to care about the characters, and enough suspense to worry about them as well. Secondary characters are key to a great book because they breathe life into the main characters, and that’s exactly what Naughton delivers. I enjoyed the relationships between Zane and Ryder, Ryder and Marley, Olivia and Eve, and Miller and Olivia. I’m guessing we’ll see more companion novels featuring Miller and Olivia or Ryder and Marley in the near future.

Overall this is a compelling story that begins with a bang, delivering a romance packed with hot, steamy sex, and a story that might have been ripped from the headlines! This is one of those books that once you pick it up, it’s nearly impossible to put down!
