The Path To Freedom by Lisa Pietsch
In the war on terror...sometimes the best weapon is a woman...
Sarah Stevens is a washed-up military cop whose life is a shambles until she is offered a position as an agent with the CIA.
The thirty-year-old, overweight, down-on-her-luck Stevens goes to a secret training camp where she is transformed into a sexy and deadly agent whose mission is to stop, by any means possible, the financiers of terrorism against the United States and its allies.
Sarah soon discovers that this is an exciting new life loaded with adventure, danger and undeniable sinful temptations…
I must admit - I was a little skeptical before I read this book. I am SO not an action/adventure type of gal. But boy, am I ever glad I took the chance! Lisa Pietsch made her characters come alive in my head, and actually sculpted a military heavy plot into an exciting read that I could follow easily.
It was so easy to like Sarah and identify with her. I wanted Sarah to succeed - I felt for her, sure, but Lisa never made her out to be weak or whiny, even when she hit rock bottom. Sarah stayed strong and committed to her goals.
And the guys on Sarah's team! Well, let's just say there's a hunk for every taste in this one. What's not to like about a book filled with sexy, dangerous men?
I'm also a sucker for humor, and Lisa's writing had me laughing at loud more than once. There's just something about a strong, sexy woman that makes even the most cool hunk turn into a blubbering fool now and again.
This will definitely be one book I read again and again. And the adventures are due to continue un multiple books that Lisa has in progress. I can't wait, and you shouldn't either! The Path To Freedom is definitely worth it!
