About The Espionage Effect:

When desire sets you free…control is a matter of perception.

I’m Devin Hill.

Darkness taints my soul.

I’m suffocating. Drowning.

The sweet promise of air? Pure illusion.

Tested as a genius at age seven, I hide my emotions, become what they expect…bury my secrets. At nineteen, I trudge toward a predestined path, blinders on, heart safeguarded.

Until I dare to be wild.

Until Alec Marquez crashes into my world.

Until all that follows redefines everything I’ve ever known.

What happens when you stumble into a world of spies…and discover you belong there?


My Review

If you are looking for an exceptionally well written, sensual and emotional thriller, then The Espionage Effect is the book for you.

Kat and Stone have done it again but this time, they’ve turned up the heat and thrill factor leaving readers in awe.

For starters, I was immediately invested in this story. You see I loved the unique characters. Devin is the beautiful, quiet, reserved, brilliant college student. When I say brilliant, I actually mean gifted. She’s been studying astrophysics and nuclear physics. Fun is definitely something she needs. Her past is also something that haunts her and keeps her fine tuned to her surroundings proving to be useful later on.

In this story, Devin is accompanied by her friend Anna, the yang to her yin. Anna is the wild or what some would call “fun” one of the pair. Their vacation to Mexico is just what Devin needs, a time to disconnect, relax and have an adventure.

Enter Alec. Oh… Mr. Alec Marquez is the one character I can’t wait to talk about. He is the hot blooded and gorgeous Spaniard Devin bumps into during her stay at the resort. To be honest, I have a weakness for this type of man and I’m glad Devin does too.  You will love him once you meet him and discover all of his talents and abilities. #sexybookboyfriend

The setting of this story is spectacular as well. Flawless writing and exquisite details make the story totally come alive in the mind of the reader. Kat and Stone have the ability to make their words turn into beautiful images and I enjoyed every single word.

Now, I really wasn’t’ expecting to be taken on the thrill ride I experienced in this story. Wow! This story is full of surprises both for the reader as well as for Devin, the female protagonist in this story. Devin’s years of study prove to have prepared her for the thrill she’s been seeking and Alec is the man to help take her on her wildest adventures.

This thriller was emotional as well. I was able to connect and understand what Devin was feeling and preparing herself for. Together with Alec, Devin discovered what it was like to fully come alive.

Of course, I did mention this book was sensual. The sex, intense, erotic, and again, exquisitely and tastefully written. There is the perfect amount of heat to melt through your eReader.

Prepare yourself for a wild ride as you enter the world of romantic suspense and spies. Join Devin, Alec, Anna and the full cast for a five star adventure.

I gave this book 5 stars. I highly recommend it. Be sure to add it to your TBR today.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
