While protecting a dangerously attractive ex-agent, a former CIA operative must decide which asset is more important to him: his identity or his heart.

She’s running out of friends—and out of time.

CIA operative Elizabeth Aiken is on her own. After a rescue operation in Venezuela goes south and her cover is blown, Elizabeth barely escapes the country with her life. Set adrift by the Agency and with a price on her head, she seeks out the only person who can help her disappear.


Unfortunately, the devastatingly attractive former operative wants nothing to do with her or the cartel-backed Venezuelan president who wants her dead. Worse still, if Elizabeth’s not careful, she’ll end up losing her heart instead of watching her back…and there’s no room for mistakes with assassins hot on her trail.

Helping her could destroy everything he’s worked for.

Former Marine-turned-CIA operative.

Current bar owner.

All-around badass.

Shane “Viper” Quinn has spent years constructing the perfect cover, and he’s not about to sacrifice it for a woman he barely knows. Even if she is strong and beautiful and makes him long for sultry nights that could destroy his carefully crafted life.

Still, Shane is forced to fight his growing attraction to the fearsome ex-agent while keeping her in one piece. Elizabeth’s enemies are now his enemies—and they aren’t going to stop until everyone who stands against them is eliminated. Will having the deadly Viper by her side be enough to save her?

While protecting a dangerously attractive ex-agent, a former CIA operative must decide which asset is more important to him: his identity or his heart.

She’s running out of friends—and out of time.

Crossing Lines is my first book by Adrienne Giordano but won't be the last. From the compelling characters to the break-neck speed, I could not put the book down. Even the moments when the heroine went off on her own away from the team that wanted to help was explained by her back story. Well done. The heat level is a little high, but not too much. I loved the setting and the plot twists and turns. I did figure out some of what was going to happen but that didn't diminish the story for me at all. These characters held true to the end, even with their arc and change. I wanted to read more about them. I received a copy for review through NetGalley. All opinions are my own. #crossinglines #netgalley

Liz was a CIA operative and her cover was blown and she has to fight her way out of Venezuela, after killing the President of Venezuela’s son. She’s been burned and has to start over in Chicago. She is to reach to Shane. Shane was also an operative and burned. Liz becomes Faith and is not to contact Shane. Shane owns a bar and just staying below the radar. When an assassin comes for Faith, Shane helps. Then Faith goes back to Venezuela to turn herself over to the President hoping it gets the heat off Shane. Shane is the type to not leave a man behind. Somehow the President knows their every move and they believe there is a mole among them. Can Shane get to Faith before she’s killed. This was an excellent story. Shane had to leave his family behind and Faith has none. Shane works with a team and Faith works best alone. Action and steamy. I figured some things out early but still couldn’t put it down. * Voluntarily read and reviewed this for NetGalley *
