Publisher's Summary

There is no one to trust in Nancy Ann Healy’s thrilling new novel, Betrayal.  

FBI agent Alex Toles is relieved to return to work at the NSA after a frightening on-the-job ordeal. Her life partner, Cassidy O’Brien, and Cassidy’s seven-year-old son, have also been instrumental in healing Alex’s wounds.  

But their peace is short-lived when they discover that their good friend - and President of the United States - John Merrow, has been assassinated.  

Little do they know, however, that President Merrow’s death is just the beginning. Even as Alex and Cassidy are forced to confront the loss of their friend and the ramifications that will have on the global stage, they must cope with problems much closer to home.  

Battling intolerance over the nature of their romantic relationship and long-hidden secrets within their families, Alex and Cassidy must confront the truth of their pasts in order to build the future they seek.  

On top of it all, they must confront a conspiracy that spans multiple governments, intelligence agencies, diplomatic services, and international corporations if they are to finally discover the truth about the mysterious group known as the Collaborative - and about themselves.

Way too repetitive

I didn't read the reviews before I purchased this book, which was a big mistake, and waste of money. I read the first book, but figured the author's writing would have gotten better by this book. I was wrong. The writing is way too repetitive. We get it, Alex and Cassidy are in love. I don't have to hear the over the top proclamations of their undying love every third page. It sounds clunky and juvenile, and it gets really old, really fast. The book is long winded, but doesn't really progress much, since so many of the same statements/sentiments are repeated, such as, Cassidy is the most beautiful woman on the planet, and turns heads everywhere she goes, her congressman ex-husband is a bad guy, and doesn't like lesbians, Alex is the best FBI/NSA agent that has ever lived, and everyone who knows her says so. The only problem with that last statement, is Alex has yet to actually prove why she's the best agent who's ever lived, and I don't think getting shot by someone who's never fired a gun before counts. I don't want to trash the whole book, because if the author could get past the "I love you more. No, I love YOU more. No, I love you more than anyone has ever loved anyone, and my 7 year old son is now your son, even though we haven't been together that long, and his legal father is still in the picture, but we'll get our attorneys to fix that"--thing, she could have a decent political thriller on her hands. Cut out all the repetitive filler, and have your characters speak like regular people, and it could be decent. However, I will not be purchasing anymore books in this series.

Terrible

This book is impossible to listen to. The characters are not clearly introduced. There is no plot or way to follow the actions. I want to exchange it but Audible will no let me for some unknown reason.

Good storyline, but..

I love the who done it story line, but The straight girl and lesbian hookup is so overdone. This also needed some serious editing to reduce the use of the phrase "her lover". "Beyond cheesy" is what comes to mind with the other overuse of the French "I love yous." The plot is excellent though!

20th Century cloak n dagger and modern romance

It's pretty cheesy on the all about the wedding romance and retro on the spy suspense since highly implausible that paper files and packages are still how international intrigue conducted but it's still an entertaining series.

Betrayal

This story has been more than a romance. It in its entirety is a thriller of political intrigue with romance threading throughout. Alex, Cassidy and Dylan are the heart of the story but the other characters are equally as relevant and important. The love scenes are truly that filled with love and respect by both participants. I look forward to reading the next in the series as Alex and Cassidy move forward in their life together.

Betrayal

It’s interesting listening to the audio after having read the series. I didn’t seem to notice it when reading but in the audiobook hearing Alex referred to as the agent so much was really bothering me. Otherwise, I still love this series! It definitely keep my focus because so much is going on. And when I’m reading, I can read faster. Listening I can’t lol. The narrator does a fantastic job with this series. My book review: This is a fantastic series! It's very strong on the spy/intrigue/mystery, with a fast pace but the relationship between Alex and Cassidy is just as strong. The author does a great job of weaving this story. My only issue is there are so many characters throughout this story/series that I need them to be referred to the same way throughout. Either by their profession, their first name, last name, or handle but I need just one. It's even harder to keep track when the identifiers change. Can't wait to start the next one!

Great combination of spy and romance stories

The narration of this story by Cassandra York is excellent. She has a soothing voice to listen to and is able to give all the characters their own tone. I especially like Dillon’s voice. The story is enthralling and I loved Dillon’s part in the wedding. Such an unusual twist and I think this would be wonderful if done in RL weddings where applicable. I am dying to see what happens next and have purchased Bk 3 already.
