Tempted into Danger by Melissa Cutler
ICE: Black Ops Defenders book one
Starts off with a lot of drama and action and keeps going till the end. The characters are interesting and you want to know more about them. plot was more like a action film with explosions, car chases and gunfights.
Vanessa developed a program that would help find drug money being laundered through the banks on her spare time. The U.S. wants to use it. Drug dealers want to destroy it if they can't get it. Vanessa is smart but has emotional issues of being left alone.
Diego an ICE agent was given the job of escorting Vanessa to a safe house. He feels his team of black ops were being wasted just driving her to safe house. He is thinking he might have to quit. Before he can get to Vanessa she is attacked and kidnapped from her apartment. Diego and his team go into action to rescue her.
Vanessa does not what is going on but does realize that Diego was protecting her and got her away from the bad guys. Before they can get to the safe house more and more things go wrong. Other things go right. Vanessa wants to use her program to help others so she is willing to go and help.
Diego is driven to use his black op skills to make the world a better place after his brother was killed in the towers on 9/11. He can't relax and take off time away from the job. Because he knows he can save lives and get the bad guys before they can hurt more people.
The story is set in Panama. Which makes me want to go see it. Loved the rain forest setting.
I enjoyed reading Tempted into Danger. I will read more books from Melissa in the future.
