Romance and implausible terrorism

Two good friends spend a night in bed and as a result lose their friendship. The couple cross paths months later when the special agent James investigates a bio-terrorist attack and Kelly is questioned.

The majority of the romance (and book) involves tragic pasts that result in mistrust and misunderstandings that keep the couple apart- nothing original. The investigation leads to some action but more would have been better. There are no big plot twists or surprises.

Overall, lacks depth - 2 1/2 stars so save your credit.
