Nico Rosso, the author of the critically acclaimed Countdown to Zero Hour, returns with Book Two in the Automatik: Black Ops series—a sizzling romantic suspense in which two undercover operators fight to reclaim a small town from the ice-cold grip of gunrunners.
He was her safety.
She was his backup.
Former navy SEAL Ben Jackson knows that sexy “Mary Long” is nothing but a cover; that beneath the stylish clothes and flirty smile is a stone cold super-soldier no one ever gets close to. Until her kiss hits him like one of her sniper rounds.
But Morris Flats is no place for a hookup—menace hums through the town, and the more the two operators keep pushing for answers, the more deadly the current seems to run.
For former Special Forces sniper Mary Kuri, flirting with her muscular teammate feels like playing with fire. It’s hard to tell where the cover ends and the real feelings begin. What she does know is they can’t afford to lose focus.
Their mission is to gather evidence, and with the gunrunners watching their every move, a single mistake could prove fatal.
It’s two against the world, and Ben and Mary are about to discover that not only do the lives of innocent people hang in the balance, but they’re also fighting to save the rare connection they’ve found with each other.
I don’t normally read male romance Author’s, but Nico Rosso has become a favorite of mine.
The first book in this series, Countdown to Zero Hour had me hooked with its intense storyline, fast action, and sizzling chemistry between the H/h.
This book is just as good, if not better.
In this book, Mr. Rosso takes his readers on a wonderfully fast-paced journey to stop a group of gunrunners who have taken over the town of Morris Flats from getting their shipment out of the town and onto the streets.
The two operators sent into the town to gather evidence quickly learn that strangers aren’t welcome and are encouraged to leave town as soon as possible.
The chemistry between Mary and Ben is kindling. They work well together, trust one another, and soon their working cover is more than just a cover when they begin to truly open up to one another and let their real personalities slip through.
One Minute to Midnight had me on the edge of my seat from start to finish, and it seemed I couldn’t read the story fast enough in order to find out what would happen next.
This story is well written, well developed, engaging romantic suspense novel.
I highly recommend this novel, and hope you enjoy this story as much as I did!
