As a former member of the United States Secret Service, I’m no stranger to putting my life on the line in the name of duty. Having left the nation’s capital to re-settle in Pittsburgh, the skills I acquired during my tenure in Washington have made me a valued member of the team at Jameson Force Security. But when the President comes seeking a favor to protect his niece, I find myself on the fast track back to the Oval Office.
Simply put… she’s beyond brilliant. A nationally renowned energy scientist, Barrett Alexander is on the verge of a breakthrough that will change the world. Unfortunately, that has also made her the target of a suspected terrorist cell. And while Barrett doesn’t believe she’s in any real danger, the President isn’t willing to take chances with her life.
As the threats against Barrett become more calculated, I decide taking her on the run is her best chance of survival. Danger, isolation, and attraction ensure we grow closer than I’d ever thought possible. When I realize I want to keep her safe for reasons that have nothing to do with my job and everything to do with the woman I’ve fallen in love with, no one is safe from the hell I’ll rain down on those that threaten her.
Reasons why Code Name: Sentinel totally worked for me:
- Barrett is a scientist and I am all about female representation in STEM fields.
- While she has had a charmed life, she is not at all pretentious or snotty. She is the niece of the president for goodness sakes!
- Alpha protectiveness. I know its not for everyone, but its totally for me!
Code Name: Sentinel has great action and the book moves at a very quick pace. Honestly, its a pretty short read, so the author has packed a ton of info, action, and romance into the pages. I liked Barrett and Cruce together; as her bodyguard he is actually pretty sweet-he doesn’t just keep her safe but makes sure she eats, takes breaks, etc. I did struggle with the dumb thing the genius did that got them into hot water. Why make such a smart heroine do something ignorant? I guess even brilliant people have dumb moments. While I think the book might have been better if it were a bit longer and things could have been more fleshed out. However, Code Name: Sentinel was an enjoyable romantic suspense read!
