Unexpectedly reunited after six years, high school sweethearts Devin Shanahan and Grace Harrington cross paths and have a whirlwind wedding. A lot can change in six years, however, and they must figure out how to make their two independent lives mesh.
Unable to disclose his CIA job to his new wife, when Devin is assigned a top-secret mission to Hong Kong, he tells Grace part of the truth: that he is going to work abroad for six months in finance. But when the mission turns deadly and Devin doesn't know whom to trust, he must make the most difficult decision of his life in an effort to keep Grace safe. Will the seeds of deception prove destructive to their newly formed marriage? And will the love that brought them together be the very thing their enemies use to tear them apart?
Traci Hunter Abramson is one of my favorite authors so I knew I would have to start this when I had time to keep reading until I was done! It starts out with Devin and Grace unexpectedly reuniting after being apart for six years. They still have strong feelings for each other and decide to get married. Their trials start immediately and there are several complications that threaten to tear them apart.
I loved both Devin and Grace! Devin couldn't tell Grace what he really did for a living so, of course, that caused confusion and hurt feelings. I felt bad for Grace as she was trying to figure out what was happening. And for Devin who knew he was hurting Grace but was powerless to stop it. In addition to the danger, they have family issues to deal with, which made for some uncomfortable and dramatic scenes.
I loved the pacing of this book! It starts out with a whirlwind romance with some foreshadowing of the danger to come. There was plenty of mystery and suspense and I couldn't put it down until I knew the whole story. This is a book that Traci Hunter Abramson fans will enjoy! And, if you haven't read any of her books, it's a great one to start with!
