Review: Lights Out by Natalie Walters



CIA analyst Brynn Taylor developed a new program to combat terrorism, and she invited members of foreign intelligence agencies to America to foster cooperation between countries. Now one of them, Egyptian spy Remon Riad, is missing.

Jack Hudson has been working for the Strategic Neutralization and Protection Agency for almost nine years and takes the lead in hunting down the missing spy. But he isn't at all pleased to find out Brynn is involved. It's hard to trust a woman who's already betrayed you.

Every lead they follow draws them dangerously deeper into an international plot. Kidnapping, murder, explosions, poisoning--the terrorists will do anything to accomplish their goal of causing a digital blackout that will blind a strategic US military communications center and throw the world into chaos.

Can Brynn surrender control to a man who doesn't trust her? And can Jack ever get over what she did to him? The fate of the world--and their hearts--hangs in the balance.

My Thoughts:

There is evil in this world, no doubt about it. And it is good that there are those whose desire is to stop it. Jack knows this and so does his team at S.N.A.P. and their job is to help the government do just that.

Brynn Taylor is in the CIA and that job is pretty much all she has especially after the deaths of her parents. She has one friend who lives in New Mexico that she sees occasionally. Now, under her watch, a spy from Egypt has gone missing. Why? And not only that but Brynn's whole career is in jeopardy as she vetted him and it was under her organization he was working with. So in steps Jack and his team.

Things couldn't get any worse for Brynn as she and Jack once upon a time were romantically involved and that ended on a sour note. Jack still doesn't trust her, and she is still guarding her heart. However, things do get worse for Brynn and Jack is trying to save her not only from herself but also from the terrorists.

I really enjoyed this action filled spy novel and the team camaraderie that made them almost a family. We are introduced to them all and their personalities, special skills, and some loves are revealed. This one was Brynn and Jack's story, and Jack has a time trying to keep Brynn from killing herself. He already sees she has pretty much sacrificed her dreams and future at the noble but impossible mission she has given herself to stop terrorism

Even though it has been eight years, the mutual attraction and genuine love is still there between them stirring up dormant feelings and sizzling looks. If only these two would stop being so stubborn and Kekoa would stop interrupting them. He is probably my favorite character and I so hope we get his story too.

I was provided a copy of this novel from the publisher. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.
