What they say: Five years ago, Aegis Security op manager Marley Addison’s lover died in a South American raid gone horribly wrong…or so she thought. When she receives a phone call telling her that he is still very much alive and in danger, she vows to bring him home safely, even if Aegis CEO and former Navy SEAL Jake Ryder has kept her out of the field for the last few years. Then Jake shows up in Colombia to help her, leaving Marley annoyed…and more than a little distracted by her alarmingly handsome boss.

As things between Marley and Jake heat up in the wilderness, they discover their rescue mission is filled with treachery. Now the domineering Jake has to rely on Marley for survival. But can she depend on him when their mission takes a shocking and deadly turn?

Fatal Pursuit is the pulse-pounding third book in Elisabeth Naughton’s scorching Aegis series.

I received a copy from the publisher Montlake (via NetGalley) in exchange for an honest review!

What I say: Fatal Pursuit is part of The Aegis Series but it works as a standalone. I hadn't read the previous books and the only thing missing was more information about Marley's past. The series follows the lives and romances of the Aegis Security staff - this time the focuses is on boss man Jake and his assistant and wannabe field operative, the uber talented Marley.

Marley finds herself running off on a rescue mission to Columbia and Jake chases after her to 'rescue' her. For the most part Marley's pretty competent and I did get a little annoyed with Jakes He-Man attitude towards her at times. I couldn't believe he didn't see the reason why he was so protective of her. As much as his bossiness annoyed me, I did find him amusing.

I liked Marley and found myself cheering her on whenever she stood up to the many bossy men in her life. I also had my doubts about a certain person pretty early on but I wasn't expecting the dramatic turn the story takes. 

Although the jungle chapters were a little extreme at times they did make me smile, and the hut scenes made me blush. Marley demonstrates a huge amount of patience putting up with Jake's many mood shifts, but she does her do her own share of back and forth.

I enjoyed this short and fast paced story but I'm not sure I'd have the patience to be controlled as much as she is by Jake, her Dad and most of the team.

3 Stars in my Sky!
