"I'm CIA. We do whatever we want and say we didn't."
The only problem with that is determining the good guys from the bad guys. And when someone is trying to kill you, and you don't know who it is, you can't rule out the agent you're in love with, right? When the bullets start flying, who determines if you are the target or just collateral damage? What an amazing finale to this action-packed addictive serial told from Amada's POV. Now that she's come out of hiding, she fills us in on all the missing facts that led to her 3-year absence.
Some previous events are recounted with additional details filled in, giving us a clearer picture of where her head was at when she made the decision to leave her job, and her heart.
Amanda was raised by CIA parents. She's been in the life from birth. She was conditioned to sacrifice everything for her country, including her life. When a threat from her past resurfaces, she finds herself right back in the thick of danger. Willing to put herself in the line of fire to battle her enemies and to protect lives. But the evidence against her is strong, assuring that she's living on borrowed time once the benefit of her specialized skills is no longer needed. Will she be able to prove her innocence before the man she loves does what he's been ordered to do? "Seth is the Assassin. He is my poison." That's saying a lot since she's the 'Poison Princess' and she doesn't have an antidote for how he makes her feel. There's not a single formula in her lab that can take away the pain of losing him.
As new players are introduced and more secrets revealed the suspense builds. Time is running out and danger is getting closer and closer as they scramble to learn the truth before it's too late. People from their past resurface and the facts become cloudy. What's true and what is staged to appear that way? Who can be trusted? Who will be left standing at the end of this epic finale? Does love really conquer all?
Lisa has turned me into an espionage aficionado, keeping me on the edge of my seat, anxious to turn the next page while expecting the boogyman to jump out at me when I do. What a rush! I also kinda have a new crush I'd love to see more of. Fingers crossed there'll be more #Bear in my future. Should we start a petition? The line forms here...
