To Casey, Montgomery Prep isn't just DC's most prestigious private school-it's her alma mater, the place where her fondest memories were made. It's also her current employer and the target of a dangerous cyber criminal. But even more shocking than the crime is the sexy FBI agent who comes to investigate . . .
With his six-plus frame and gym-sculpted body, no one would suspect FBI special agent Sam Cooper was once an awkward teenage computer geek-no one, that is, except Casey, the gorgeous girl who captured his heart on the first day of high school and held it for the last fourteen years. When a hunt for a hacker brings Casey back into Sam's life, his long-denied desire becomes impossible to ignore. He knows just how to make her forget the boy he was . . . and show her the man he's become.
Okay, so I’ve done it again. I’ve managed to grab a book to read and not actually read the blurb. Let’s be honest, I’m me. I saw FBI Agent and I was sold. In Deep with the FBI Agent is the third book in the Alpha Heroes series from Lynne Silver, however, it is the first book I’ve read in the series. It wasn’t really the type of book I thought it would be. I was expecting a romantic suspense. The book is more romance with suspense elements.
The series is connected by all three heroines, who happened to go to the same prep school in the DC area. As I mentioned, the books are standalones. If you’ve read the two previous books, you will get a glimpse of the previous couples. No secrets from the previous books are disclosed, so you can definitely go back and read them.
I found Casey Cooper to be a little hard to like at times. In high school, she was the “Queen B” and was constantly being mean to Sam. She had her reasons for being the way she was and she definitely did feel bad in high school and afterwards for the way she treated him. No matter what Casey said or did, Sam would always take everything in stride. Even ten years after high school, Casey is still trying to overcome issues from her youth.
For me, FBI Special Agent Sam Cooper made the book. There isn’t a lot of his past and background mentioned, but you get flashbacks of him throughout high school and college. Sam was a scrawny nerd in high school, who had a heart of gold. He was truly a diamond in the ruff. He grew up and took his hacking ability to the FBI and became a member of the FBI Cyber Action team.
A series of cyber attacks against private schools and the dreaded ten year high school reunion bring Casey and Sam back together. For fourteen years, Sam has had a crush on Casey and he’s determined to make her finally see him for him. As a couple, these two are good together. Sam shows over and over again what a great guy he is and that he’s always known the true Casey. The furniture breaking bedroom action isn’t in your face graphic, however there are light descriptions. The suspense element takes a back seat to the romance. However, when it becomes the main focus of the book, you are able to figure out what's truly happening.
