Parker Adams has always done what’s expected of her . . . until a double agent with nothing to lose ignites a passion she doesn’t dare give in to.

Mission Agent Simon Wells is everything Parker Adams has been trained to fight: manipulator, murderer, spy… witch. But for her, what makes Simon most dangerous is his mesmerizing sexual magnetism, powerful enough to tempt even the famed ice queen of the Mission. Though she knows better, each encounter with the deceptive agent leaves her craving more.

Simon isn’t a man to let go of what’s his, and his pursuit forces Parker, a woman he can’t get out from under his skin, to make a stand that could destroy her. If they can work together, they might survive the politics that have enslaved their devastated world—or fall victim to the pitfalls of desperation, bone-deep mistrust, and a hunger that threatens to consume them.

BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:

Location, topside, New Seattle, and is the proverbial poop flying about in this installment.

Mission Agent Simon Wells, and Director Parker Adams, as Parker must keep reminding Mr Wells, she is the Director, he is the Agent, are getting themselves in and out of a pile of doo doo continuously in this installment.

Fast paced scenes with some time out for Simon to get a tumble between the sheets with the straight laced, by the book, Parker.

That book is getting thrown in the shredder.

Simon is rewriting it.

Corrupt agents, who does Parker trust? Can she, should she, place her trust in Agent Wells? Does she have a choice?

Parker has to dig deep and decide does she go with her gut feeling and trust nobody, not even her own people? Things are not adding up. There is a political game being played and she aims to find out who the players are.

But she can’t do it alone.

Parker didn’t figure into Simon’s big picture. She was a means to get what he needed done. He is dying like all the witches. He needs answers and quick. He has selfish motives, but then he can’t seem to get Parker Adams out of his heart, out of danger, out of his bed, out of his mind.

Back to the drawing board.

Parker is in trouble, up to her eyeballs. Simon is playing on two teams. Parker does not like what she is uncovering and the powers above want her snooping stopped.


Kayleigh is finding her world turned upside down. Who does she trust? Something isn’t feeling right. But her father would not lie to her....would he?

The witches are just subjects, nothing more.

Aren’t they?

I like Danny, I hope he gets a bigger role in future installments. There was something very engaging about the guy.

Jonas...sweet Jonas.... Karina you had me worried. Don’t do that to me! Not nice!

Executions, corrupt team members, loyal friends who had been tucked into the background coming into play, new friends, political terminations, dying witches, lust, and fast paced action makes this series very intriguing to read.

Book 1 to book 4, so much has changed, been uncovered. Who is loyal, who is trustworthy? Can the remaining witches be saved from a horrible death..... or an execution?

What is worse?

Who is 100% batting for good and who is only appearing to bat for good?

I think you will be surprised!

If you enjoy Stacia Kane’s Downside Ghost series, I think you would enjoy this series.

I just happened to get an email showing me a novella, just after I wrote this review.

Bouncy. Bouncy.

Now I get Jona’s novella...Woot!! Wicked Lies # 4.5 .....and ummmm....from the blurb, me thinks it may be Team Jonny J

I did a double take!

* waggles eyebrows*  

Bring . It. On!



  1. I love Downside and if this is similar to that then I'm in. I think this is the book I have. I better start a personal challenge: CLEAR OUT MY NG/EW PILE SO I CAN GET TO FORGOTTEN BOOKS LIKE THIS.

    1. Not same story , but gritty and kind of tough like that series:) Yes Miss B, you will love Silas! EW currently has #4.5 Jonas novella think Quinn and Blay and # 5 so I was getting myself up to speed for those:)



  2. Definitely need to read this series. Soon! Just gotta clear out some of my TBR first!
