New Release and Review: Code Name: Rook by Sawyer Bennett

Code Name: Rook (Jameson Force Security #6)
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: October 27, 2020

Synopsis:
Being a highly skilled operative for a company like Jameson Force Security is exhilarating and important work…until it comes time to date. I like to keep my profession under wraps for a number of reasons. Some of what we do is top secret, most of what we do is dangerous, and more than one woman has tried to latch onto me because she was more enamored with what I do than who Cage Murdock really is. And since I’m more of a ‘here for the night’ than a ‘here for forever’ kind of guy, what’s the harm in a little white lie about my job?

My harmless deceit has never failed me. Until now. Because I met the most amazing woman and did the unthinkable. I married her. And now my beautiful, unsuspecting, probably-going-to-leave-my-sorry-behind-when-she-finds-out-the-truth wife doesn’t know that I’m not a used car salesman like I told her when we met.

As it typically does with lies, the truth is about to come out in a big way when Jaime unwittingly gets herself mixed up with some unsavory characters and I, along with the team at Jameson, have to intervene. Now I need to save my girl and hope I can save my marriage too. Let’s just say I have some serious explaining to do.

Review:

I’ve been a fan of this series from the beginning. Each book is a complete standalone that focuses on a different couple.  You do not need to read the others in the series to read this one.  If you have read the series, we got a glimpse of Cage and Jamie in Ghost.  These books have some suspense element in them.  This one had a little less suspense than the other books in the series.  Cage is a self-proclaimed, eternal playboy, but gets knocked off his feet by Jamie.  Because he’s always been a playboy, Cage does some dumb stuff, which runs through the storyline.  I like both of these characters, but I had a hard time connecting with them.  There are parts of the “suspense” I really like, there are parts that I felt was forced.  Was the book well written? Yes, all of this author’s books are.  Did I like the book? Yes, it was a nice read.  Was it my favorite in the series? No, I enjoyed other books more.  Is it worth the read? Yes.
