    One thought on “Dark Deceptions”

    1. Originally posted on The Book NymphoQuick summaryNash Brennon and Annie Gallagher were once CIA covert operatives and partners. She disappeared following an op that went terribly wrong and hasn't been heard from since (eight years). He's now part of A-Tac, an elite CIA unit masquerading as faculty at an Ivy League college. She's been underground in Colorado. When they hear chatter about an assassination threat, Annie's name surfaces as the suspected sniper associated with the plot. What they don [...]

    2. Hero: Nash BrennonHeroine: Annie GallagherSex Scene: Leave it to your imagination. Well, the one that I have read was. I've skipped the other sex scene.I like reading a good catcher about lawmen (FBI agents, CIA agents, etc.). I have to say that I wasn't feeling this book at all, but I wanted to finish it. I didn't see the chemistry between Nash and Annie at all. Nash and Annie are CIA agents - partners/lovers. Well, Annie's status turned to ex-CIA. The book opens up with the prologue; They are [...]

    3. I met Dee Davis a few weekends ago - a lovely lady who was also inducted into the Golden Leaf Hall of Fame with me. Her's for romantic suspense and me for Paranormal. I like reading romantic suspense and bought this book to try. The writing is strong and I liked the characters.Why I didn't 5 star it, is because of the plot - not that the plot was bad or didn't conclude with a satisfying ending - but because much of it was based on a couple misconceptions/misunderstandings - where both characters [...]

    4. wow a great beginning to a new series. I have read older books by Ms. Davis and was pleasantly surprised that i loved this series even more. Thank the gods for used books stores. The heat between the H/H was off the charts, and though it was alluded to the big secret revealed was done well and totally believable. There was betrayals, redemption, and a wonderfully well written HEA. Can't wait to continue reading this series. 4.25 stars

    5. I hate cops. In and out of books. If I love the author and premise and series but there is a cop in the main cast I cannot stand it.That being said, I won this book and thought I would give it a fair shot."Impress me" I said to Dee Davis."No, I'm too lazy." said Dee Davis.Bunch of cliches and a bunch of cops. The end.

    6. I recently decided I needed to get out of my comfort zone, and Dark Deceptions seemed like the perfect book to do that with. I'm not usually a fan of military-type storylines, but Dark Deceptions may have changed my mind.Annie Gallagher and Nash Brennon were a team - undercover, covert operations. But they werw more than a team, they were lovers. Until an assignment where everything went wrong.Eight years later, Nash is with an elite military team, learning his lession long ago to only rely on h [...]

    7. Nash doesn't fall easily and has only fallen in love with one woman, his partner at A-Tac - Annie. As much as he would like to forget her very existence because of how she hurt him and then simply disappeared. Out of nowhere she reappears and is back to work. They try to extinguish the flame but it only seems to run more wild. Her son was kidnapped by terrorists and the only way they will release him is if a UN ambassador is killed. Even in the face of this disaster, they cannot fight the attrac [...]

    8. This book was really pretty good if you like your RS heavy on the suspense and light on romance. I just kept waiting to find out why I should want Nash and Annie to end up together. IMO I never did feel that true love connection. I didn’t like or dislike either one of them, they just were. The book is a one big op to find the bad guys. The author writes a very fast paced, heart racing action scenes, but could use a little more character development. I am not sure if I will read the other two b [...]

    9. A high octane start to a new trilogy! This series centers around the A-Tac team.This book starts hot and moves at a super fast speed lots of suspense and lots of romance!

    13. This book isn't horrible, it's just not written well. Beginning gives us all kinds of info and character dumping. There's about 15 secondary characters running around, none of which are singled out well, so they blend together.All the CIA and special agent ops intrigue and missions and talk (that take up 85% of the book) were boring, wordy, and felt really inaccurate.Plot, when broken down to bare bones, isn't actually all that bad, and could be compelling in the right hands. Dee just writes on [...]

    14. It's been awhile since I read a book that I literally couldn't put down. I had to force myself into bed at 4:30 amd and was still awake contemplating getting the book and finishing it. I'm mad at myself for not reading this series sooner. There is nothing I didn't like about the book. Every person in this book was first rate. The hero and heroine were complex yet likable and the sexual tension was viable. I like that Dee Davis placed red herrings here and there. It kept the tension ramped and sh [...]

    15. Dark Deceptions is a fast-paced romantic suspense novel. I find reading about anything that relates to secret military or covert operations fascinating so I quite enjoyed all the tactical operation scenes in the book. A little bit more of the bad guy's comeuppance would have been nice to read about but otherwise I liked the book and look forward to reading the next two in the series this coming summer and fall.

    16. This was my first Dee Davis book, it certainly won't be my last. From page one I could not put this book down. Lots of action and suspense right from the get go and just enough romance added to the mix. Love Annie, Nash and the whole cast of characters. Although someone among this close nit group(A-Tac)may be a trader. I have my own suspicions and I'm looking forward to reading the next instalment in this series to see if I'm correct.

    17. Dark Deceptions by Dee DavisHigh octane romantic suspense. First in the series. A child gets kidnapped and from there it's guns, chases, secrets and espionage. Non stop action. I really enjoyed the friendships of this group of agents. No spoilers but there is obviously an issue that will be revealed in coming books.An entertaining spy romance story.

    19. This Review was first published on my blog Lecture toute une AventureMy opinion: I loved it! Since I first read a later book it’s not my first encounter with the characters of the team but it still felt like it and I enjoyed that! I loved to see the interactions between all the team members and I do want more already But, before I get to the next book better start with this one; here we discover Nash an ex CIA agent which is now part of an even more secret governmental organisation A-Tac…tha [...]

    21. I do love a good romantic suspense and if you add espionage to the mix, all the better. I like the idea of A-Tac, a secret branch of the CIA whose headquarter is located on a college campus and the people who worked in it are college professors by day and spies taking on dangerous missions by night. I also like the fact that A-Tac is comprised of both men and women and there wasn't any "you're a woman therefore you're weaker" mentality. The story was predictable, the villains easy to figure out [...]

    22. From my blog[return][return]Dark Deceptions by Dee Davis is the first novel in her A-Tac series with the second, Dangerous Desires being released in July and the third, Desperate Deeds being released in August. Dark Deceptions is the beginning of an absolutely brilliant series filled with an excellent cast of characters, just the right mix of villains and enough suspense to keep the reader thoroughly engaged from the beginning to the very end. In Dark Deceptions, the reader meets the A-Tac team, [...]

    23. Annie Gallagher has managed to stay off the CIA's radar for the past eight years. Annie and her son, Adam, live a normal life in Creede, Colorado until Adam is kidnapped form his bed. Someone who know about Annie's past has taken her son to force her to do a job for them. They want her to kill Blake Dominico who is a US ambassador. If she does not kill him or if she tells anyone they will kill her son. Nash Brenon was Annie's partner when they worked for the CIA. They were also lovers. On the ni [...]

    24. I started this series with book 2 and I loved it so much that I wanted to read book one. I found there were a lot of differences to me in the two books. This does make sense to me because Dark Deceptions was her first book in the series. So it's not hard for me to understand why Dangerous Desires had a much easier flow with less information and talk on the technical side, basically for me having just enough to peak your interest but not bore you. With this book however I found myself skipping a [...]

    25. The book is heavy on the action and light on the romance. Not much attempt is made at realism with a group of CIA black ops agents that pull off elaborate para-military operations that seem more the providence of highly trained military special forces than a bunch of operatives who still find time to not only teach at a college but win accolades for being at the top of their academic fields. They also find time to stomp all over federal laws by conducting highly illegal operations on US soil - s [...]

    27. I liked a lot of things about this book. The love scenes and action scenes were great. The story was good. The basic writing, dialogue, and most characterization were excellent.However.The little boy, Adam, was weird. He was supposed to be 6 years old. He let his mother call him "Baby" without protest, but he didn't believe her stories about his father ("Wow. I mean, you really are a hero, just like Mom said. I always figured she was just making it up."). I think 6 is a little young to stop thin [...]
