Jae's Assignment by Bernice Layton

Trusting her is dangerous. Not trusting her could be deadly.

Jae Randall isn’t just another pretty face. She’s a trained FBI Special Agent who’s just been assigned to extract and relocate a witness.

It’s a no-brainer. Strictly routine. Until she realizes there’s nothing ordinary about this assignment—nor the handsome doctor she’s supposed to protect.

After five years under threat of capture, even death, Trevor Grant trusts no one. Least of all the beautiful, statuesque woman who asks him to dance—then informs him she’s his contact.

Before he can figure out whether she’s legit or part of the shadowy militia who’s after him, shots ring out. And Jae’s piece-of-cake assignment turns into a bloody, life-or-death race against time to find out who has betrayed them—and a losing battle to resist their electric attraction.

Warning: Contains a gun-wielding, ass-kicking FBI agent with a gift for eloquent profanity, and a psychiatrist with a secret recipe every military on earth would love to get their hands on. Readers are reminded that when in doubt—or danger—always use protection.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This is a hard book to write a review for. While I enjoyed the storyline, there were definite problems I had with it as well.

The storyline was quite complex and the characters I found were pretty well-rounded. I got quite wrapped up in finding out what was really going on as there is a lot of mystery behind the story and it kept the pages turning quickly.

However, that being said, I have to admit that I didn't like the way the color card was used. Skin color was capitalized like it was a statement instead of simply the color of their skin. Not to mention, that the main woman states blatantly that she "doesn't date White men." It took away greatly from the story in my opinion.

Then there is the fact that there were a few words that were used incorrectly, like the author used a thesaurus and didn't look up what those words actually meant.

Lastly, there were portions of the book that were told to the reader instead of showing us. Characters would be in the middle of a conversation and then instead of continuing the back and forth between their speech, we'd be told that one or the other simply said something.

"So you're going to try and find him, huh?" When he nodded, yes, Jae told him she was going with him and dropped her feet to the patio floor.

It really ruined the flow of the story in my opinion.

However, these are all issues that I have personally, so I'm sure others will have no problem simply enjoying the plotline.
