Mark and Paige are living in sin—that’s what any man of the cloth would say. All they want is to get married, but they refuse to exchange vows without their best friends—the Six. As they wait to hear back from them, Mark and Paige can’t help but feel they’ve been put off… forgotten.

When the threat of an enemy stalking them is brought to light, the call is made to bring them into the secretive world of Cole Enterprise.

Slotted for recruitment by the very agency that stole their chance at a normal life, Mark and Paige have to adjust to their new path as secret agents in a war they didn’t even know existed.

What neither fully understands is that nothing will ever be the same… and some vows are deadlier than others.

Thank you to Sonya for my review copy of this book. I have been following the story of The Six for quite a few years so when this book was offered for review I had to request a copy. Unfortunately I only recently managed to read it. If you haven’t read the first 3 books in the series I would urge you to go back to the beginning because in my opinion it really is worth it however, I will try to keep this as spoiler free as possible if you haven’t read them. Each book focuses on a member of The Six and this book follows Mark.

In the previous book we are told Paige and Mark are desperate to set a date for their wedding the only problem is their friends won’t give them a date that they will be free. They want a simple wedding just close family and friends. What Mark and Paige don’t know is the reason their friends haven’t replied.

I won’t touch too much on the story line for this book because I don’t want to ruin it but suffice to say if you have read the other books in the series then you will know the sort of things to expect.

I am going to focus more on the technical elements of this story. The pace was perfect. Sonya knows exactly how to build the suspense and have you on the edge of your seat waiting for the outcome. She also knows how to completely surprise you with an element you would never expect. These are the things that I love about Sonya’s writing. No two of her books are the same and they are anything but predictable.

I look forward to the last two books in the series but also to anything else that Sonya shares with us.

About Sonya Loveday

Sonya Loveday, first and foremost is a reader, an avid one. It is of that love that brought her to the realization that this was the answer to the nagging persistent feeling that ‘there’s got to be something more’.
The dream came alive in 2009 when she purchased her laptop and began the tedious step of becoming a published author.
When she’s not reading, she’s writing. When she’s not writing, she’s reading. And when she’s not doing either of those things she’s sleeping, shuttling her children back and forth to school, letting the dogs and cats in and out of the house for the umpteenth time in the last hour and dreaming of a clean house.
