Agent I1: Tristan (The D.I.R.E. Agency #1) by Joni Hahn

He’s an agent for hire.

She’s a small town sweetheart.

What could they possibly have in common… except danger?

Raised in the art of warfare, Former Navy SEAL Tristan Jacobs has always been a force to reckon with. Now that D.I.R.E. has successfully implemented his scientific enhancements, he’s a walking weapon. Unstoppable, as long as he stays focused.

When ex-BUD/S teammate Aidan Monroe interrupts his long-awaited sabbatical to call in a favor, Tristan reluctantly fills the simple request: take out his sister’s fiancé.

One problem: Rachel Monroe – smokin’ hot, kind-hearted, and in desperate need of a protector. After a night of mind-blowing passion, Tristan’s afraid unstoppable is just a memory. Knowing Aidan’s temper, Tristan could be, too.

Rachel Monroe had a plan to help her mother. Her brother ruined everything when his gorgeous, super-agent friend teleported her to his island getaway – and his bed. She’s drawn to him despite the fact he’s a professional agent, much like the people suspected of killing her father.

Now, his enemies have come to her small town, looking for vengeance. Have they found more than they bargained for? Or, does the past have its own retribution in mind?


Favorite Quotes: 

Rachel smiled as love struck her like a placid wave, washing over her, soothing her with the comfort of its truth.

“Don’t you get it? Ensuring you’re safe is worth more to me than my life ever will. I don’t have anything outside of D.I.R.E. If I die, I want to die for something I believe in and, take my word for it, there isn’t much out there. But you, Rachel, you’re worth dying for.”

This book is perma free!  It is a pretty steamy read with sci-fi aspects and lots of action. A trifecta of awesomeness for my tastes.

The brothers best friend romance’s are some of my favorite ones to read.  I loved how strong willed and fiesty Rachel was.  But she was also very self-sacrificing for her family and very inquisitive. An all around three dimentional character.  The best kind!

And Tristan was the tall loner that never had as much to lose as Rachel with regards to a friendships and love.  Her brother being the closest thing to family in his lonely life.  And he has one of the coolest powers ever!  What I felt was different about this book is usually the romance is the subplot but in this one the sci-fi seemed to be the subplot and it read differently because of it.  In a real good way.  It was very underplayed and his powers were very much made an extension of his other qualities, such as his SEAL training.

They were total opposites and boy did they attract!  Their chemistry was very steamy and they had a hard time attempting to resist, which I thought was awesome.  The back and forth banter between them was like foreplay.  Great romance, opening the door for the supporting character’s books of their own.  I love these kinds of series.
