International finance, oil profiteering, espionage and a race to stop a terrorist plot are the backdrop to this love story between an exotic spy who longs for a soulmate and a life-saturated financier who’s a recent widower.
Daniel Youngblood is a world-weary oil and gas investment banker who’s ready to hit the beach, when he’s hired by a Saudi Prince for an OPEC deal where he can net himself $25 million as a swan song. At the same time, he meets and falls in love with Lydia, an exotic European fashion photographer, who he later discovers is really a CIA trained spy with a shocking history with the Saudi Prince. She convinces Daniel to enlist in what becomes a race for the lovers to stop a Muslim terrorist internet plot to bring down the Saudi royal family and cripple the world’s oil capacity, all before they wind up dead.

Character development was almost nonexistent. I couldn't get grasp the story without knowing the characters.
His voice didn't seem to match the story or tell it well.
In the middle
I wish the book would have gone more in depth about Sasha's background. She seemed to be such a badda$$ with a firearm, but where did she learn how to use one. I think there was a reference to her shooting when she was younger, but she seemed to have tactics. That would have made the story a bit more realistic.
