Book Review: An Eye for an Eye by Irene Hannon

An Eye for an Eye by Irene Hannon

Revell, September 1, 2009

After he accidentally shoots a teenager at a tense standoff, FBI Hostage Rescue Team member Mark Sanders is sent to St. Louis to work as a field agent and get his bearings while the bad press starts to settle. Just weeks away from returning to Quantico to resume his work on the HRT, Mark has a chance encounter with an old flame, Emily Lawson. But their reunion is cut short by a sniper. Now Mark must find the shooter before he tries to strike again. But what is his motive--and who was his intended target? Can Mark put the pieces together, keep Emily safe, and rekindle a long-dead relationship at the same time?

A fast-paced tale of romance, suspense, and intrigue,
An Eye for an Eye is the exciting second installment in the Heroes of Quantico series.

My Quick Thoughts:
  • Love old flame romances - my favourite kind, especially when the chemistry is good and the back story is credible - which it is here.
  • Mark is my favourite of the Quantico boys - humorous, engaging and believable.
  • I liked Emily and found her to be an appealing character
  • Was happy to see these guys reconnect and forge a future together.
  • Would have liked to see more action though.
