She is on a quest for answers; answers that could just get her killed.
Six months after the mysterious yacht explosion that killed Cassie Christo’s mother and stepbrother, authorities still have no answers to the cause. Searching for closure, Cassie returns to her childhood home on the Pacific Coast of Baja, Mexico, where she launches her own investigation into the accident. She never expected to find an adversary in the man who had once touched her heart with kindness in her darkest moment.
Rio’s been fantasizing about reconnecting with Cassie for months. But not here and sure as hell not now. As an undercover agent with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, he’s working the biggest sting operation in all of northern Mexico, and he definitely doesn’t have time for the wild attraction he feels for Cassie.
Not only is his cover on the line, so is his heart. Because as the end of a yearlong operation draws closer, Rio knows if he tells Cassie the truth about who and what he is, it won’t only jeopardize his mission, it may result in him losing her forever. And if he doesn’t, his lies and deception could get them both killed.
I'm going to come right out and tell you that I tend to have adult ADD when I read. My eyes and mind sometimes wander all over the place so I knew that I was going to love Intimate Enemies right off the bat when the story held my attention and kept it there until the very end.
Cassie Christo was one hell of a heroine. Strong willed, smart, independent and sexy as all get out on one side yet soft, gentle and vulnerable on the other. She was the perfect match for the hero Rio, an undercover agent with the U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement. Rio is strong, handsome and loyal and is every girl's fantasy. He lives a solitary life because of his job and that suited him just fine until Cassie rides into town and turns his world upside down.
After the sudden deaths of Cassie's Mother and stepbrother she heads to her hometown of Baja, Mexico to learn the truth of what happened to them and to confront her snake of a stepfather, Saul, about the shady way he is spending the estate funds. The only thing that keeps her going is the memory of the stranger who held her in his arms at the cemetery during the funerals and the comfort he showed her. But imagine her surprise when she pulls up to her childhood home and finds out the man of her dreams, who just happens to be Rio, is an employee of Saul the snake.
Rio is deep into an undercover operation that involves Saul when Cassie shows up. This little spitfire has a way of getting herself into the middle of trouble at every turn and it ends up being Rio's job to try and keep her on a leash. Cassie becomes the most frustrating woman on earth as she butts head with Rio as he tries to keep her out of trouble and alive. You could cut the sexual tension between them with a knife. They were amazing together.
