Series: Kelley Legacy (Book 6)
"Mendez? What happened to you?"
Captain Jim Kelley was thunderstruck. Suddenly Alexandra Mendez had gone
from one of the guys, kid sister and tomboy to all woman. Alex was
under his command on a dangerous undercover mission, but Jim had to keep
reminding himself they were only pretending to be lovers.
Alex had loved Jim all her life, but they'd always been just friends.
Now working together to thwart an assassination plot, their cover
required her to unearth her femininity. Jim's sudden attention was
unexpected...and thrilling. But was Jim just infatuated by her looks, or
was it her he wanted?
Fantastic conclusion to the Kelley Legacy series. I loved the way that Alex was so very good at what she did. Jim and Alex had know each other for most of their lives, but Jim had never really looked at her before. When Alex got assigned to his unit, she found herself being treated as "one of the guys", even though she longed to be seen as a woman. Jim was floored when she appeared for a DC fundraiser all dolled up. As they got further into their investigation of the assassination plot, their relationship moved into a whole new level - one Jim wasn't sure he was comfortable with. I loved the way Alex was able to do so many of the things that needed to be done that she constantly amazed him. The climax of the story was suitably tense, and I loved the way it went down. I also enjoyed the interweaving of the Kelley and Colton families throughout the series.
