TERMS OF ATTRACTION
TERMS OF ATTRACTION (3) by Kylie Brant: When the leader of a South American country visits Metro City, SWAT team member Ava Carter is instrumental in staving off an assassination attempt. This captures the attention of Cael McCabe, who owns the global security company guarding the man. Ava initially turns down his job offer, but she's keeping a potentially explosive secret, so a Homeland Security official who wants her to spy on Cael manipulates her into taking the job. This taut and gritty thriller has two people who are intensely attracted but don't trust each other, so the romantic ride is a bumpy one. The small drawback is that, as the final story in the Alpha Squad trilogy, it doesn't feel connected to the others and ties up some plot points too quickly and tidily.
