When desire sets you free…control is a matter of perception.
I'm Devin Hill.
Darkness taints my soul.
I'm suffocating. Drowning.
The sweet promise of air? Pure illusion.
Tested as a genius at age seven, I hide my emotions, become what they expect...bury my secrets. At nineteen, I trudge toward a predestined path, blinders on, heart safeguarded.
Until I dare to be wild.
Until Alec Marquez crashes into my world.
Until all that follows redefines everything I've ever known.
What happens when you stumble into a world of spies...and discover you belong there?

I became easily engrossed in The Espionage Effect as the characters and the story itself was intoxicating, full of suspense, and adventure. You have no idea what is to come next. I found it hard to put down, yet excited when I was able to pick it back up and get lost again in the story.
Devin Hill is a genius. And that’s putting it mildly. Her IQ is pretty high. But the rest of her life? It’s pretty drab. That is until Alex Marquez crashes into her life during her vacation Oh and he is a spy. Alec has no idea what he is in for with Devin, but whatever it is he is all in. Devin finds that her dark world has a bit more of color since Alec entered it. And the color in her world was everything she needed. But perhaps its Alec who needs her the most.
Can we talk about the connection between Devin and Alec? It was off the charts, addicting, and intense. While mysterious, Alex is also devastatingly handsome. Very much so. Devin finds it easy to be in a hot and passionate affair with him. But what does she truly know about this man? Everything isn’t what it seems. And secrets? They eventually come to light. But how many secrets can someone really have?
The Espionage Effect was such an exhilarating read. I found that the authors seamlessly wrote a story that I became easily lost in and there was never a lull or boring moment. The erotic and romantic elements had the perfect balance within the story along with the suspense. It is easily seen how comfortable the authors are with their writing as the story reads as if it was written by one person rather than two. This was very well done and I look forward to more of their work.

A few factoids about the writing team…
Kat enjoys her chocolate rich and dark, her music edgy and soul-filling, and her vacations exotic with toes dug into the sand. And she’s wildly, madly, deeply in love with Stone.
Stone likes pounding the trails on a mountain bike, vibrating the sound system with rock music, and down time spent on a stand up paddleboard. And he loves Kat wildly, madly, deeply…and then some.
Together, they’re having a blast bringing fun-filled romantic stories to life and hope you’ll join them in the exciting adventure.
