✱✱Book Review✱✱ Guarding Adelaide by PJ Fiala

 


USAT author PJ Fiala, brings you the next generation of GHOST operatives set in the small-town of Glen Hollow, Kentucky, where a long-standing rivalry is brewing into an all out war, and love comes calling even in the worst of times.

GHOST: Government Hidden Ops Specialty Team. They eliminate the threat when no one else can.

She’s a highly-skilled GHOST operative following in her father’s heroic footsteps.

He’s the driven special counsel to the Secretary of Defense.

Their roles collide as a war breaks out that neither of them saw coming.

As far back as Adelaide Masters can remember, she has always known exactly what she wanted to do with her life. She grew up surrounded by cousins and friends, her constant companions, whose parents were all GHOST special operatives. Learning from the best in the business and gaining experience working under the watchful eyes of her family has been a dream come true, but now she’s ready to set out on her own.

Rafe Martin is living his dream as special counsel for the Secretary of Defense. Brought in on some of the most confidential assignments, he's never once divulged secret information. His reputation is above reproach and a source of great pride. It’s what has propelled him to this coveted position in the fifteen short years since arriving in DC.

Rafe's boss goes dark and a crack team of special operatives are brought in to locate him. Special operative Adelaide Master’s request for information is at direct odds with his responsibility to maintain a high level of secrecy. Unfortunately, the very secrets he hopes to protect may be what gets Adelaide killed.

Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I've only recently found PJ Fiala's books, so I'm not very well-versed in GHOST and Glen Hollow, but I've read enough to know that I want to know more. That means my TBR has grown, and I'll be spending a lot of time in Glen Hollow, Kentucky.
Guarding Adelaide is more about politics and corruption than what I've read by this author so far, so DC is prominent. So are secrets, and the book is loaded with all the tension and danger that goes along with so many secrets. Rafe and Adelaide certainly have their work cut out for them, and the many harrowing situations kept me on the edge of my seat.
While the action and danger do create a fair amount of intensity, there's a budding romance that comes with its own intense moments. I loved Rafe and Adelaide's romantic journey. The chemistry is so good between them, and they generate a good bit of steam as their attraction grows. The main characters can make or break a story for me, and these definitely make it. And it's not just the romantic couple. The secondary characters are as richly done as the main characters.
I'll stop there and leave the book's secrets... well, I'll leave them secret, at least until each reader discovers them for themselves. There are a few things left open, but I expect those to be tidied up in the next book, and we do get our promised happily-ever-after. So, if you're looking for a romantic suspense to get lost in, Guarding Adelaide is a good bet. It's exciting, it's suspenseful, it's intense, and it's romantic. What more can a girl ask for?
