Sometimes, being in the wrong place at the wrong time is where you need to be for the good things in life to fall into place.
Max Brady is a 25 year old, fresh out of college, ambitious woman that doesn't take crap from anyone, and often uses men before tiring and disposing of them. She’s landed her dream job at the internet search engine company Fiddle. Unfortunately, she is stuck working as an assistant to the company’s CEO, but she’s hopeful that if she plays nice, one day she’ll be promoted.
Catch is an assassin. He’s been working this job for twelve years and now with his family taken care of he is ready to retire. All he wants to do is complete his last assignment, collect his large sum of cash, and then disappear to a nice, quiet place in another country.
When Max makes the huge mistake of sleeping with her boss, she decides to copy some files from his computer to hold as leverage in the event that he may try to fire her. Little does she know, the files hold secrets that can take down her boss and the entire Fiddle company.
That decision changes the course of both of their lives.
Catch is hired to kidnap and kill Max, but instead he chooses to save her life. They go on the run as he tries to formulate a plan to remove the hit on Max, because he believes that she was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. As they spend more time together, Catch’s motivation for saving her life changes with his realization that if anything happens to Max he may be unable to live without her.
This book is an HEA.
Catch begins when Max makes a horrible mistake when it comes to her boss. But she makes things worse when she decides to take files from his computer to hold as leverage to keep her job. Now she has people after her who want to hurt her for things she knows nothing about...
Now in comes Catch who is assassin sent to kill Max. But he realizes almost too late that this assignment is not the normal kind. For instance Max isn't a bad person, and now he decides he needs to help her and not kill her. These two have a long crazy journey ahead of them, but it ends up bringing them close together...
I liked this book overall but I wouldn't consider it really good. I really enjoyed the characters, but I sometimes felt like Max was a little bit over the top, especially in her dialogue. On the other hand I also liked that she was able to take care of herself, and that she wasn't the type of person to cry at the drop of a hat. And I was also frustrated by what Catch did towards the end, I felt like that was kind of dumb. But over all I did enjoy reading the book.
