review ✓ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Joanna Bourne

E and innocent victim from a ruthless French fanatic But she finds an old colleague already on the case Pax Old friendship turns to new love and as dark secrets reappear Pax is left with a choice go rogue from the Service or lose Camille for eve. This is part of an ongoing series and I definitely recommend reading at least some of the others first Personally I m going by internal chronological order and that s working out very fine for me At any rate many of the surrounding characters are established in other stories and I think there s definite benefit in knowing them before this one startsI m going to lean on the others to keep this review shorter than I might otherwise do It s like the others in all the right ways ie completely its own story but enough alike that you know it will be well written and with lots of juicy intrigue and harrowing adventure I really loved Camille and Pax is a sweetheart and their relationship was simply outstanding I think Bourne might have struggled a bit keeping them apart for so long in this story because they have a really strong past that binds them together with trust than you d normally have for spies loving spies I think she managed beautifully however and seeing them work together was a real treat I particularly loved Camille s determination to protect the fluffy aunts she has lived with for so long and has grown to love and appreciate They don t get much screen time but those aunts stole every scene they occupied even if often only in Camille s mindSo this had all the rich competence porn I ve enjoyed in the rest of the series and the relationship was probably the best so far It just worked and while the service drama with Pax felt a bit belabored and Camille s family connections went on a bit past the sell by date neither intrusion hindered my enjoyment enough to matter much in the end Okay enough to make me reluctant to round the 4 up but it s still a great story I enjoyed very muchA note about Steamy There are a couple explicit sex scenes and they re a bit gratuitous By which I mean that by the time Pax and Cammi have enough time to er indulge their relationship is plenty trusting and strong and we didn t really need the physical intimacy on screen Electromyography for Experimentalists up but it s still a great story I enjoyed very muchA note about Steamy There are a couple explicit sex scenes and they re a bit gratuitous By which I mean that by the time Pax and Cammi have enough time to er indulge their relationship is plenty trusting and strong and we didn t really need the physical intimacy on screen
