Publisher's Summary

After being wounded in action, NSA agent Nathan Ortiz comes home to Miami, eager to return to duty. But he doesn't expect his newest mission to lead him straight to the one woman he loved, lost, and has never gotten over.

A beautiful, successful restaurateur, Amelia Rios enjoys giving back to her community, especially to struggling women. Then a woman she recently hired stops showing up for work, and, unfortunately, she isn't the first to go missing.

Soon Amelia finds herself thrust into a shadowy, dark world, working side by side with Nathan, the only man she's ever loved. They must confront old feelings as they battle a ruthless enemy preying on the poor and weak. The heat simmering between Nathan and Amelia could mean a second chance for them-but first they have to survive.

Contains mature themes.

Great book

Good writing and exciting to read. Too much sex detail for my liking. Good suspense.

Another engaging story by Ms Reus

Whether you are new to this series and/or Ms Reus’s stories, or a longtime fan, you are in for another rollercoaster ride of actions and emotions.
In this one we have Nathan Ortiz, an undercover NSA agent who recently got injured on the job. He has recovered and is now back in his hometown of Miami to undertake a new mission. A mission that takes him to the girl he loved as a teenager, and has not forgotten even though she hurt him when she left him.
Amelia Rios is now a successful restaurant owner, but she hasn’t forgotten Nathan, nor the secret she kept from him and the reason she left him.
Now she seems to be a key factor in women that are going missing . As the plot thickens, so does the reignited relationship develops. Secrets must be divulged, trust must be earned , traffickers found, and women must be saved. But in the midst of this turmoil , will Nathan and Amelia find each other again and if they do, will they have a future?
Aside from an engaging plot, and complex characters, I commend the author for highlighting the fact that human trafficking exists in a variety of forms. We all need to be aware of this and do what we can to help stop this atrocity. A very sensitive subject matter in which the author did an outstanding job in presenting to the listener.
The narrator , Sophie Eastlake, did an excellent job in this performance.
I was gifted this audiobook. The opinions expressed are solely my own.

An All Right Story.

Sophie does an amazing job reading this book. However, I the story is still not my favorite. The heroine drove me nuts still. I read the book first, and I thought I like a little more in audio form; nope. Still a three star story.

Great Book!

Any additional comments?

This is a great book; this is the fifth book in the Deadly Ops Series by Katie Reus and narrated by Sophie Eastlake. Nathan Ortiz is an NSA agent, after being wounded in action he is eager to return to duty. What he isn’t expecting is for his mission to lead him to the woman he has never gotten over. Amelia Rios is a successful restaurateur and enjoys working in her community to help struggling women. When she finds herself in trouble she is not expecting to get help from her lost love Nathan. If you are looking for a great romance with suspense then you need to read this book. I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series.

The narrator Sophie Eastlake did a wonderful job, and was very easy to listen too. She did a great job with the different characters and their voices.

If you are looking for a great book, then you need to read this book. I can’t wait to read the next book by this author. Once I started listening to this book, I didn’t want to stop until the end.

A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

His Forever Love

Where does A Covert Affair rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I absolutely loved this book and the audible was simply fantastic.

Who was your favorite character and why?

That is a hard one to chose just one. But I will say Nathan because he is a this tough as nails Alpha male who has the biggest heart and soul when it comes to the woman he loves.

What about Sophie Eastlake’s performance did you like?

I love Sophie Eastlake's narration she brings each character to life and gives us that oomph we can not get solely by just reading the book.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Nathan sees Amelia across the room at the very beginning.

Another Fantastic Story in the Deadly Ops Series

I really love this series! This book was really good too! I really liked Nathan he was sexy, strong and just awesome. Amelia was awesome too! They had some great chemistry together and there were a couple of very nicely written sex scenes, not erotica.

The story line and plot was great. Can't help but love the undercover Special Op's story lines. There was mystery, action, romance and a lot of great dialogue!

As for the narration, it was amazing. I love Sophie Eastlake's voice. She does the men's voices so well. She reads with emotion and has wonderful reading voice.

I highly recommend this book and all the previous books in the series!

Great read and listen..

This started off pretty exciting but then it kind of faded to black and months and months passed. Nathan was all healed, and he was off to his next assignment.

This assignment took him to Amelia, the girl who left him behind 12 years before. I just love second chance love stories, as long as they’re not full of angst. This wasn’t. There was the reason she left that she felt guilty about, and Nathan did feel angry about it when he first found out but he did have to realize she had been only 17 so it really did make some sort of sense. I mean, who really knows what goes on in a 17 year old girl’s head. It’s been over 50 years since I was 17 so I sure don’t remember.

Anyway, this was a good story, even though I hate stories about human trafficking. However, I was surprised at who the bad guy was. I never saw that coming. There were criminals on the NSA’s list of possibilities but that bad guy wasn’t even on the list.

The secondary characters were some of my favorites from the other 4 books in the Deadly Ops: Wesley, Elliot, Karen, Cade, Maria Dax, Hannah, Detective Nieto, etc.

And with all the bad guys there were Sid was the worst of the worst, Dr. Davis was a total creep, too. Iker was a criminal but he was likable.

There was some nice sexual tension in this book and some great and explicit sex, too. There was also swearing, with the F-bomb being dropped 68 times, as it should be in this kind of story.

As to the narrator: Ms. Eastlake is always a favorite because she does nice male voices. I just wish she read with a little more emotion.
