    Action packed romance

    I've enjoyed Desiree Holt's Vigilance series and A Deadly Business was a great addition to that series which can easily be read well as a stand alone. I liked that Marissa was a strong woman and thought she and Justin had serious chemistry. The action kept me on the edge of my chair making me anxious to see what would happen next. I've been reading Desiree Holt literally for decades and she always delivers an excellent read. I received an advance reader copy from Netgalley.

    Fantastic

    A fake life lived overseas for 3 years. A life lived in hiding today. Still, it's a really nice life that Marissa Hayes has in Arrowhead Bay. Until the day she's discovered and her life is put in danger. Justin has been fighting his feelings for Marissa and he's pretty sure she's been doing the same. Then, she's assigned to him to protect and they are spirited away to a couple's paradise. Things could be a lot worse. Ooops. Sexy time gets interrupted when the man who is hunting her decides to crash the island during his payback rampage on his buddies that turned their backs on him when Marissa took him down while living her fake life overseas. Unbeknownst to our bad guy (for awhile anyway), everyone he wants to kills is right there on the island. Anything more would just be spoilers and we can't have that. This was an amazing book that I literally could not put down. It flew by and so did the hours of real life but when you have a book THIS good, it's pretty tempting not to care. It's a great thing there are crock-pots or my kitchen would be in flames. Desiree Holt is an absolute genius at taking a story and weaving it all around you until you are completely caught up in the world she has created. Thank you to Desiree Holt, Kensington Books, and NetGalley for allowing me the chance to read this book and share my thoughts and opinions with others.

    A very bad, bad guy

    I really, really enjoyed the story in this book -the bad guy was just, so, bad, and colourful, he made it for me! Marissa had her cover blown while working as a financial analyst for the CIA to take down a bad guy. She did get enough on said bad guy to take him down, but not all the way. She has been in hiding with Vigilance keeping her cover. Justin works for vigilance, and he and Marissa have been dancing around their attraction for a while. Once it looks like the bad guy has found her, Justin is the one to keep watch over her on a secluded caribbean island. Sparks fly between Justin and Marissa, and all is going well for them, then bad guy shows up and wreaks all sorts of havoc. Justin holds down the fort until vigilance can back them up, then, he and Marissa face the 'what if' of a holiday romance, queue the HEA :)

    5 Stars of Deadly Business

    A Deadly Business is an adrenaline pumping and thrilling romantic suspense read that keeps readers hanging on the edge of their seat. Marissa Hayes is a former CIA operative hiding from a powerful enemies with terrorist ties and Justine Kelly is the Vigilance man that has to keep her alive. These two strong, gripping characters are easily connected to and pulls readers into their story with ease as they fight to stay alive while trying to keep a handle on the exquisite and excruciating passion that is rising between them. Because of Marissa’s life and her past, she is quite reluctant to embark on a serious relationship and Justin knows that he shouldn’t mix business with pleasure if he wants to keep her alive, but the passion burns hot and fast throughout the story adding to the intensity of the dangerous thrills of the plot and making it extremely hard for this couple to fight their attraction. The plot is fast paced, smooth flowing and filled with a passionate romance and an exciting fight for survival against an enemy that will stop at nothing to bring down everyone in his caught in his crosshairs. Surprising twists and high tension events keeps readers glued to the pages and ensures that there is never a dull moment. I couldn’t quit turning the pages of this thrilling Vigilance read and I found that this particular story in this series had an overall realistic feel to the way the characters reacted and handled the intense situation that they found themselves in which made the story even more enjoyable and I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series.

    Fantastic Romantic Suspense!

    A Deadly Business by Desiree Holt is my favorite of this series so far. I totally loved this book from the first page to the last. Ms. Holt has given us a well-written book. The characters are outstanding. Marissa moved to Arrowhead Bay when her cover with the CIA was blown and a price put on her head. Justin is a Vigilance operative and is teaching Marissa self-defense. Justin and Marissa's story is packed with drama, humor, action, sizzle and suspense. I was glued to my Kindle for this one. This is a fairly quick read, a perfect choice for those with limited time for reading. I look forward to reading my next book from Desiree Holt. A Deadly Business is book 3 of the Vigilance Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book that I won from Goodreads. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
