The last person Sabrina Slye wants on this mission is Gage Laughton, the one man capable of distracting her when a lack of attention will get them both killed.
A rogue CIA assassin has eluded Sabrina for two years after her team was traded for his life during a blown op. She turned her back on everyone in the agency. Who wouldn't after that betrayal? A lead that sets her on the killer's trail exposes the tip of a deadly international threat. Everyone in her world is at risk, including Gage, her one-time CIA handler ... and former lover.
Gage has waged war on Sabrina's emotional walls from the moment she surfaced again, determined to have her back in his arms. As one of the deadliest operatives alive, Sabrina bends to no one's will, not even when Gage is trying to keep her alive. That won't happen unless they can stop a megalomaniac from starting a third world war. The survival of her Slye agents and the future of the world depend upon Gage convincing Sabrina to trust him again with all that she protects, including her heart.

This started out well enough with Gage and Sabrina whose story sounded like something I could really get into, until characters started piling in and a long, ongoing storyline kick into play. For someone unfamiliar with the previous Slye Temp books, jumping into ‘Fatal Promise’ was beyond difficult and frustrating when the main plot points started to stick out without quite making sense at all. Worse yet, it all sounded like a mish-mash of conspiracy theories to the extent where an alien incursion would have been welcome.

I did want to like this book, honestly. The blurb sounded right up my alley and I tried to hold on for as long as I could, finally giving up when the story just couldn’t hold my interest.
