Since her partner's death, Jodi Israel has been perfectly happy playing Q to everyone else's Bond. Electronics and machines are safer - and they are a lot easier to deal with. Unfortunately, she's stuck with TRAIT's newest recruit, an infuriating, arrogant alpha-male who plays by his own rules...and is hot enough to send electric voltage through all of Jodi's circuitry.

Finn Danby heeds his instincts, even though it's cost him his job on more than one occasion. The moment he sees Jodi's fiery hair and uncanny engineering abilities, Finn's instinct takes over...and it's all libido. Now they're working together to protect the unstable daughter of a high-profile politician - and the sparks are flying. Both in and out of the bedroom. But when all hell breaks loose, Finn must decide if he wants to fight against Jodi...or fight for her.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Ignite I truly enjoyed this book and of course I like the TRAIT series anyway. Finn - he wasn't the most PC guy out there and he's willing to do what it takes to get the job done. It was nice to see a guy who might go a bit overboard and not apologize for it or fall over himself being all PC. He is who he is. Jodi - sweet girl. I loved seeing her pushed back into the field and find a way to heal emotionally from what happened to her. These two worked together (as a couple ultimately) but it wasn't easy for them to see that they could become a couple and I enjoyed watching the struggle. Great book!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great story and AMAZING cover!!! Finn Danby needs a job since he was just fired from the Chicago Police Department. As he walked out of the police department, he was approached by Josh Marron of TRAIT and offered a job. Now he's a new recruit at TRAIT and partnered with Jodi Israel. She lost her last partner, Nolan, because he refused to listen to her and wait for back up. Jody soon realizes that Finn seems to have that same attitude that Nolan had. There is one huge problem...she can't keep her eyes off the sexy recruit and the feelings are definitely mutual. I love the relationship these two have. It's that kind of relationship that says "I'm attracted to you but I hate you at the same time." As expected, the sex between these two is off-the-charts! They make a good team in bed and out of it. Also, Izzy was quite a surprise. She gave the story that perfect little twist. This is book 3 in the Agents of TRAIT series and it's my first book by Seleste deLaney. It won't be my last! I must go read books one and two! Received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Keep Fighting. Jodi and Finn's story is kind of complicated. Jodi first meets him as he is a cop trying to give her a parking ticket. Finn is attracted to her right away but not sure how to approach, since she is in quite the hurry. Finn next sees Jodi over at TRAIT - who is trying to recruit him. She will be his trainer-supervisor for his trial period. Finn is just fine having a woman be his superior. What is bothering him is he can barely restrain himself from touching her. He has the desire to kiss her all the time. The chemistry is literally killing him. Jodi is also attracted to Finn. She has had a bad partner in the past who would never rely on a woman, so she afraid to take Finn's word that all is fine. The trust is not there yet and they are already in danger. Nothing seems to stop the sizzle between them and they finally just give in. Is it just sex? Can it be more? Is there something there between them? Both of them have been hurt before. Both of them are scared. Meanwhile, there is a threat against Jodi's life that has jumped the track and now is after Finn also. Can they catch a killer, save the girl, and find love? I think they can. The characters are very well developed and this is the TRAIT series book # 3. ***This ARC copy was given free from and its publisher, for review purposes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from sexy action packed story! This sexy action packed romance is the story of Jodi and Finn. Jodi is content perfecting her spy gadgets for TRAIT and doesn't need a partner, certainly not a loud, obnoxious, overbearing man like Finn. But when they're put on an unusual case protecting a young woman, Finn's character shows something else Jodi's not used to - a caring and protective side. Sparks fly, and clothes with it, but while a wild fling might satisfy for now, it doesn't ease the ache of loneliness Jodi feels. Time is running out though, and if they want to make it through alive they're going to have to trust each other, and maybe, just maybe it'll lead to something more. I really enjoyed this story! From Jodi and Finn's first meeting there is instant antagonism that makes the sex between them, when they succumb to the underlying attraction, hot and emotional. The suspense plot is unique and interesting, propelling the story forward at a rapid pace that made for a real page-turner. I liked how Jodi and Finn related to one another, that Jodi doesn't take any nonsense from him and equally Finn isn't afraid to push right back. They are like oil and water but when in a crises they work together as they are supposed to, perfect partners when needed. They have each other's backs and that thought isn't lost on Jodi as she grudgingly admits to herself that maybe she need's Finn after all. It was an entertaining and fun read. 4 stars!
