About the book …
After a whirlwind romance, Taryn Young is looking forward to her honeymoon. But while separated from her new husband at the airport, she becomes victim to a bombing. Not only does she awaken in the hospital to discover her husband is missing, FBI agents suspect the two of them may have had something to do with the bombing that killed and injured countless people. Determined to find her husband and prove their innocence, Taryn goes on the run. But the FBI isn’t alone in chasing her, and she begins to fear her husband isn’t the man she thought he was.
FBI agent Grayson Hall has a gut feeling that Taryn is telling the truth—she’s not a terrorist. But her role in developing new software that could be highly dangerous (and make a fortune for whoever controls it) could be the reason behind the deaths that follow her. Who is chasing her? And what do they intend to do with knowledge?
When Taryn has nowhere else to go, and Grayson believes she may help him find answers, they have to no choice but to trust each other. But as they face danger and work toward a common goal, they must also put aside their growing attraction for each other …
My review …
Taryn is a worthy heroine. Beautiful, loyal, and smart. But we also discover some interesting and unexpected things about her. Who would suspect that a quiet, introverted, software developer would run from the FBI in her own pursuit for the truth—or that she’s a skilled martial artist?
Grayson serves well as a hero. Handsome and a competent FBI agent, he’s willing to take risks with his career and follow his gut instincts. A man of faith, he also reveals the deeper side to his personality. He shares that faith with Taryn without being pushy, and it helps her to rediscover her yearning for God. I like Grayson's gentle approach and care for Taryn and how their feelings grow for each other naturally as they face life and death situations together. I also love Grayson’s retired FBI agent uncle and the relationship he has with his nephew.
As always, DiAnn Mills takes readers on an adventure. The story is fast paced and the well-thought out plot contains several twists. I enjoy a few surprises. Extensive research into the FBI and the type of technology that drives the story makes it believable.
If you enjoy inspirational, romantic suspense, I highly recommend you read Firewall.
