Enhancement: Muscle Acceleration/Strength
Now that he’s part of the D.I.R.E. Agency’s elite squad of super-powered agents, Jaydan Rose is walking the straight and narrow. He absolutely, positively avoids three things: high-maintenance women, trouble, and Hope Powers.
Days away from his estranged brother’s wedding, Jaydan gets a lead on the missing sister-in-law of Riordan “Saint” St. James, a fellow agent. If he can locate her, perhaps he can make up for not being there when Saint had needed him most.
As the only daughter of one of the richest men in the world, and with a special power of her own, Hope Powers wants to be taken seriously. If she can prove the D.I.R.E. Agency needs her new software application, she’ll have the credibility and position she craves.
When she threatens to search for the missing woman with or without him, Jaydan’s conscience compels him to take her. However, when danger and close quarters prove too much for their passion, Jaydan knows his list of things he absolutely, positively avoids has just disintegrated.
When their quest uncovers scandalous secrets and decades old dangers, they realize they’ve stumbled onto something bigger than themselves. While the lines of reality and imitation become blurred, a psychotic maniac makes plans for Hope.
Will Jaydan’s past rear its ugly head and destroy them both, or does history have plans of its own?

Enhancement, agency, secrets, dangers?!
HELL YEAH! THIS IS MY KIND OF BOOK!
This is my first D.I.R.E Agency novel and I’m just sitting here, the wheels whirring in my mind, wondering…WHY IN THE WORLD HAVE I NOT FOUND THIS SERIES SOONER! All this enhancement stuff sounds like the Avengers or Nikita’s Division at work here!
(Probably part of the reason why I was so excited for this book!)
Meet Jaydan Rose, an enemy-agent-turned-good and now a D.I.R.E agent with muscle strength enhancement. He avoid high-maintenance women, trouble and Hope Powers.
Meet Hope Powers, the daughter of one of the richest men in the world, who wants to be taken seriously by others and is willing to go to great lengths to prove she is not an airhead.
I like how stubborn and resilient Hope is, which is also why Jaydan is attracted to her! She is a living spitfire and has a little special power on her own. She’s stubborn and it must have been one hell of a job for Jaydan to keep Hope safe when they went on the mission!
I love the interaction between the characters, especially for Jaydan and Hope! It’s like one moment they are making snide remarks about each other, the next its BAM, extremely hot tension! I would say the tension is flowing, but it feels more like them electrocuting each other with passion!
You know, like…*ELECTRICITY CRACKLING AGGRESSIVELY*
Can I just say that…THIS NOVEL IS FILLED WITH PLOT TWISTS THAT WILL KEEP YOU SQUIRMING, WAILING AND MAKING WHALE NOISES?! One second its happiness, the next sadness and anger and lots of emotions.
Just when you think everything is fine and KABOOM! The author throws a surprise bomb and blinds your emotional mind! Reading this novel has introduce me to the author, Joni Hahn and now, I want to read her D.I.R.E. Agency novels!
(TIME FOR BOOK HUNTING!)
Highly recommended for mature readers and those who would love their characters stubborn and sizzling with hotness!
“Les, why is your father calling me?”
Shutting her eyes against the dread that settled in her chest, she groaned to herself. She couldn’t open that door. If she did, she’d make a complete fool of herself.
Walking over to the dresser, she checked her phone. Three missed calls and a text. Her father must’ve checked his DNA tracker and realized she was in Hawaii.
Looking at the door, she spoke in a raised voice. “Um, I’m not sure. Why don’t you call him back?”
Jaydan chuckled in the hallway. “You didn’t tell him you were coming to Hawaii, did you?”
Swallowing hard, she gave her chin a determined tilt. “I don’t report my whereabouts to my father. I’m not a child.”
His sardonic chuckle angered her.
Storming over to the door, she told herself she had to remember this. During those smokin’ hot visions, she had to conjure up this memory and the dozens like it she’d experienced in the past.
“Hell princess, you –“
She whipped open the door to arms’ length. Jaydan stood naked in her doorway, save for a pair of gray, athletic shorts that hung low on his hips. Water droplets hung from his dark, wavy hair and dotted his broad shoulders. His arms and shoulders looked huge, the angles and braids of muscle sharp rather than round, the sinew dense and inflexible rather than pliant flesh. His sculpted torso was covered in hard, ridged muscles with a light dusting of dark hair. He smelled of rosewood and jasmine, his copper and gold armbands branding him a masculine god.
Now, she understood his cougar-like grace, his confident saunter. No man on earth could call himself cut as long as Jaydan Rose walked around. He epitomized the term.
His eyes swirled with dark desire, their focus on her chest. Glancing down, she saw her robe gaped open, exposing the cleavage between her breasts.
She should cover herself. Close the door and walk away. Yet, she stood there, allowing him his fill while she took her fill of him. The sensation started deep inside, her mind recalling the vision, her body readying itself for him.
There was more than one way to prove she wasn’t a child.
With a hesitant reach, she feathered her fingers down the ridges of his abdomen. The muscles contracted beneath her touch, rippling behind her caress in a symphony of sensuality.
His half smile made her toes curl, his voice a husky croon. “My turn.”
About the author:
By day, Joni Hahn keeps her secret decoder ring hidden while she works as a mild-mannered HR manager and accounting generalist. She believes the world can never have too many superheroes, and anxiously waits for the call when one will need help saving the world… or getting into his costume. Joni was born with a hopelessly tender heart and believes there is nothing on earth more exhilarating than falling in love (Other than the rear shot of Chris Evans in The Avengers – that was pretty darn exhilarating). A native Texan, she thinks cowboys are the epitome of masculinity, and that country music is the other soul music.
