“I have come to expect great reads from Ms. Eden, she has yet to disappoint me.  But I will admit that I’m beginning to think her Romantic Suspense is soaring more than the PNR I love so much.” ~Under The Covers

The Elite Operations Division aka the EOD continues to exist, off the grid of course and this time the mission is to find a killer targeting their very own.  Jasper and the crew are on the hunt.  The problem is the man in question is no other than Cale Lane, a colleague they all once trusted.  And even worse, his sister is now involved.  Veronica Lane is determined to find her brother and her last option is to hire someone who knows him. She doesn’t know that Jasper is already on the case to find him and most definitely not the reason.  This totally puts Jasper in a “conflict of interest” situation but this will give him full access of what she knows including Cale’s files and possible contact with Cale.  But right off the bat, you know there’s more to it than that.

I was actually a bit worried that this “conflict of interest” will take a toll on their relationship but Veronica was a big girl and took it better then I thought.  I really liked Veronica in that aspect.  She knows what she wants, trusts her instincts and she is loyal to the bone.  Jasper is the same.  Boy, he knew exactly what he wanted and was not afraid to get it.  I have to admit there was some hesitation on both ends but it was done well and it was definitely realistic reactions to any relationships.

The conflict of the story is not so much on the romance though but more on the suspense element.  Oh yeah, it was a nail biting suspense that led me to believe one thing and surprised me with a betrayal I least expected.  Ms. Eden really did keep me guessing.

I have come to expect great reads from Ms. Eden, she has yet to disappoint me.  But I will admit that I’m beginning to think her Romantic Suspense is soaring more than the PNR I love so much.
