  • Excellent thriller

    Daring Deception, part of Barbara Freethy’s exciting FBI Off the Grid series, certainly is an adrenaline rush for readers. Agent Caitlyn was injured ten years ago in a bomb blast while attending college. When another building is bombed at her alma mater, Caitlyn gets herself assigned to the case. Could the attacks be related? Past and present begin to merge as Caitlyn finds herself working with Quinn, her former love. The story has a fair amount of angst as both Caitlyn and Quinn question the decisions that drove them apart, but it doesn’t slow down the action as they follow each clue. Fans of Ms. Freethy know the book will be well written with characters, dialogue and a twisting path that will make it difficult to close the book unfinished. I voluntarily reviewed an advance copy of this book. Most highly recommend.

  • romantic suspense

    Oh my from the very first page I was drawn into the story. Talk about edge of your seat and nail biting writing - wow. Always amazes me how this author can develop a romance between the characters in the midst of such action, suspense, intrigue and mystery. I love second chance stories and this one was one of the best.

  • Absolutely Loved This 2nd Chance Romantic Thriller

    I received an ARC of Daring Deception by Barbara Freethy as a member of her review team for an honest review. I can truly say that I absolutely loved Daring Deception, it is an incredible second chance at love r0mantic thriller. It is the ninth book in Barbara Freethy’s Off the Grid: FBI series. Barbara Freethy has once again delivered an incredible romantic thriller with Daring Deception. Each book in Barbara Freethy's Off the Grid: FBI series continues to get better and better. I have loved each book in the series. Barbara Freethy has once again provided her readers with amazing characters. I love all the characters in Daring Deception! Who doesn't love hot, sexy men and strong, passionate women? Barbara Freethy continues to deliver all that and so much more, I absolutely loved Daring Deception. Daring Deception had me guessing throughout the story as to who was behind the bombings at Bolton College and the other thrilling events that took place in this story. It was truly a surprise villain that I did not see happening. I could not put it down. I loved every page. I really enjoy how the book is told from the perspective of the main characters. I love getting the insight and feelings from the different characters. Barbara Freethy has once again proven that she is a master storyteller. Daring Deception is the story of Caitlyn Carlson, FBI Special Agent and Quinn Kelly, oceanic scientist. Caitlyn and Quinn were college sweethearts at Bolton College. A bomb goes off at Bolton College similar to one that exploded ten years prior, forever changing the lives of Caitlyn and Quinn. Caitlyn heads to Bolton College following the most recent bombing. When she arrives at the location of the bombing, she thinks she sees a familiar face. Upon further investigation she discovers that it is her college sweetheart, who she has not seen in ten years. Caitlyn and Quinn work together to uncover who was behind bombings ten years apart. They are reaching out to members of a saving the environment group, LNF that Quinn was a member of in college. After multiple attempts on their lives, the relationship between Caitlyn and Quinn changes. Caitlyn fights her feelings for Quinn because she does not want to be hurt from him again, she was almost destroyed the last time. Could Caitlyn learn to trust Quinn again? She knows that he is keeping secrets from her. I loved how the relationship between Caitlyn and Quinn changed, from hate and mistrust and that Caitlyn was willing to give Quinn another chance. Caitlyn works with the San Francisco office to help solve the recent bombing; she has been warned about investigating the bombing from ten years ago. I love how Caitlyn gets the answers from Quinn about their past relationship and why Quinn left without saying goodbye and disappeared. I love the surprise plot twists that fill this page turner which Barbara Freethy includes in all her stories. I really enjoy the poignant and bittersweet moments, the plot twists and the surprises that I have come to love and expect in Barbara Freethy's books and Daring Deception did not disappoint. One of my favorite parts of the story are the poignant moments when Caitlyn and Quinn discuss their former relationship and the death of their unborn child, and the guilt that Quinn felt over his role in the bombing and leaving Caitlyn. I loved all the secrets that Caitlyn and Quinn shared with one another. I love how all the loose ends got tied up and how the bombing from ten years ago was tied to the recent bombing. I love all the characters and the way Barbara describes the locations in and around San Francisco. It was really an incredible romantic thriller and I loved every page.

  • Heart Stopping

    Barbara does it again. A very powerful whodunnit. She keeps you guessing to the very end. You never can really guess all of the intricate pieces to the puzzle. She keeps you wanting more.

  • Romance and a thriller...excellent!

    Caitlyn Carlson’s life was shattered when an explosion at her college left her injured and heartbroken. She was inconsolable for a long time. As she healed and began to get on with her life, she chose to join the FBI. She needed to be strong and self-reliant. Her wealthy parents weren’t behind her, so she went forward in her new profession without her family’s blessing. Quinn Kelly’s life was also shattered when the explosion at his college injured his girlfriend, Caitlin. An organizer with an environmental group, he was marked as one of the top suspects and interrogated repeatedly by the FBI. Leaving Caitlyn is not what he wants, but he feels it’s best for her. After an accident causes a death, Quinn reinvents himself, including a new identity. Did he cause the death or was he just a witness? When another bombing at the same college injures more students, the FBI and Caitlyn get a call. She sees Quinn at the scene of the second bombing, Caitlyn must find him and get the answers she needs regarding his possible involvement in both bombings, and why he left her. The story now takes a sinister edge as the players from the first bombing and the second bombing begin to overlap. Can Caitlyn and Quinn make up for time lost in their personal life and keep more deaths from occurring? Will innocent people once again be lost? The climax of the book is unforgettable! I have been in love with this series since book one! The intrigue, the story lines, the different locations. Ms. Freethy just knows how to tell a tale! This iteration of the ‘Off the Grid, FBI series’, is every bit as good as the ones preceding it!
