REVIEW

Great characters and interesting, twisted plot.  I really enjoyed a few of the unexpected plot shifts.  It read like a good action novel without being weighed down by unnecessary extended violent scenes.

Seth is mysterious and good looking.  I could clearly conjure an image of him as if I were watching a crime show.  He is calculating, but yet sensitive.  The extended background on his character made him more likable.

Madison is very strong willed.  I liked how she fought to stay smart even in the worst of moments.

This is a fast paced novel.  I read it quite quickly for 90k word novel.  Based on that alone, I would give it a thumbs up.  The more I like a book, the faster I read.

BLURB

Never Turn Your Back . . .

Never Reveal Your Name . . .

Never surrender Your Heart . . .

Madison Sinclair is a smart-mouthed photographer who enjoys the simple things in life. Recently landing a job at one of Manhattan’s top imaging companies, she works hard to prove herself but often falls short of the mark. Taking pictures of the New York scenery, relaxing at home with a glass of wine, and caring for her stray cat are the highlights of her day. But when her best friend convinces her into covering a charity event thrown by a handsome billionaire, Madison’s life suddenly becomes anything but simple as she finds herself in a constant race for survival. There is nowhere she can turn, no one she can trust.

Seth Reynolds has been in the game a long time. He knows how to get in, get a job done, and get out with no complications and no witnesses. Trained to be cold and heartless, he is committed to follow through with this mission no matter what. Racing against an impossible time table, everything is in place to take out the madman intent on destroying New York City. But when the naIve Madison Sinclair stumbles into his world, all of his carefully laid plans go to hell.

Determined to do what is right at all costs, Seth must choose between the rules he’s lived by his entire life or saving Madison from a fate worse than death. If he follows orders, he will be an unsung hero, saving millions of innocent people. But if he risks his own life for Madison’s, the entire city will be in jeopardy. The choice should be easy. Risk one to save many. That’s the unbreakable code of The Perfect Order. But now, without even trying, Madison has gotten under his skin and inside his heart. With the fate of the city resting in his hands, how he can do the right thing when he no longer knows what that is?

Thank You Arc to Amy Deason!
