From New York Times best-selling author Cristin Harber and USA Today best-selling author Nikki Sloane writing as Karyn Lawrence comes an exciting collaboration…

It’s a romantic getaway for the newlyweds. Or is it?

Parker Black’s brilliant computer skills keep Titan Group running, but now he’s getting some much needed downtime. He’s taking a break from the war room to spend it in the bedroom with his brand-new wife Lexi, and whisks her off to a historic resort nestled in the hills of West Virginia.

Only, there’s a secret buried beneath the hotel. What’s hiding in the converted bunker threatens a lot more than just his romantic weekend, and he’s going to need Lexi’s help to crack inside. Cut off from his own security team and facing a ticking clock, Parker’s about to realize there’s no such thing as downtime when you work for Titan.

Review from Evelyn

Heat: 4/5
Rating: 4/5

This is the sort of novella I can get behind. I’m usually not a fan, finding the pacing off and full of insta-love, but due to this being part of Kindle Worlds’ Titan World, Lexi and Parker’s relationship was already established, meaning we could indulge in some wonderfully erotic scenes, alongside the tension of their mission.

Karyn Lawrence is a favourite author of mine, and absolutely a one-click, and her ability to write so well in someone else’s world simply solidifies this for me. Her action sequences are easy to follow and absolutely kick-ass, and although there was a fair bit of hacker jargon used within this novella, I never once felt lost.

If you’re a fan of the Titan World, or of Karyn Lawrence (or, hell, of Nikki Sloane) you won’t want to miss out on this little gem. With just over an hour of reading time, it’s perfect for a lazy morning. And you don’t even have to have read the original series – but I will be doing so now.

Review from Sheena

Rating: 4/5

This is a great thriller/romance, a really exciting, quick read with a sexy man in love with a beautiful, smart woman and a mission fraught with danger and suspense; all the elements required to make the reader keep going to the end without a break…..which is exactly what I did.

The relationship between the two main characters is loving and oh so hot between the sheets…and out of them, for that matter, and felt totally believable. Although the supporting cast only gets a quick look in I am so going to search out their stories in the series.

I have not read a Titan series book before but they have definitely gone on my to be read list after this awesome introduction….a short, hot thrilling read…
