Happy Release Day to Sparrow 59 by Devon Ashley!!! Before I start gushing all over the place about this gem, let me lure you in and bring you over to the darkside.
“The Bourne Identity meets Mr. and Mrs. Smith for the New Adult crowd. “
Members of the CIA’s specialized team Sparrow, who investigate specifically into black market deals involving stolen medical research, were all murdered in one quick sweep. Drew and Samantha, team five-nine, have been more than just partners since their academy training days. Safeguarding their secret tryst from everyone in their professional lives, they trust no one but themselves. But when Samantha finds herself suspiciously spared and Drew missing, she doesn’t want to believe what the CIA claims – that Drew is not only alive and has defected from their organization, but is facilitating the deaths of prominent research developers worldwide. Now the only member of Sparrow who hasn’t been killed off, Samantha finds herself under serious investigation by association – and a prisoner within her own home.
Just when she’s on the verge of being labeled a murderer and a traitor herself, Drew activates a beacon only she can see, taunting her from across the world. He knows she’s watching, and she knows he could be gone forever if she doesn’t oblige his silent request. With nothing left to lose and everything to gain, Sam goes rogue to track him down and clear her good name. But when she finally catches up to her partner of four years, he hasn’t a clue who he is or what he’s done, and the men chasing him down suddenly want to acquire her as well.
Frantic yet determined, Samantha is forced to protect a man she no longer trusts in order to learn why he went astray – and why his associates are determined to retrieve him. But is Drew really a victim himself in a much greater scheme, or will his memories prove lethal, leading Sam into harm’s way like a lamb to slaughter, ultimately risking the life of the only member of Sparrow he managed to save?
***Yes. I know what you’re thinking now***
This is being labeled as a New Adult Spy Thriller, never heard of that, you say?! Me neither!!! Until now, that is. It’s a little something different, which to me was a breath of fresh air, It had a bit of a James Bond type feel while still being a contemporary romance too. Here, let me further entice you…..
“Sam… They’re also claiming to have the gun that killed Lance. And that your fingerprints are the only set on it.”
Fuck. Me. All air escaped me.
“They think you killed Lance, then had Drew tranquilize you before he left.”
That’s not… That wasn’t even…
They must’ve put the gun in my hand after they knocked me out. But why take it with them just to drop it in the CIA’s hands now?
I tried to say something. Anything. I felt like I had myself on repeat these past two days. I didn’t do it. Drew didn’t do it. Was that so hard to believe? For me it wasn’t, because I absolutely knew for sure I didn’t kill Lance. So it was easy to assume Drew was being dragged through the mud, too.
But why us? What the hell did we do?
After a long silence, Ronald added, “Samantha. This has gone too far, the risk too great. I’m not going to be able to help you again after today.”
“What do you mean?” I managed to choke out, though I already knew.
“The nest has been destroyed. It’s time to fly the coop, little sparrow.”
“Ronald,” I tried to say, but he cut me off with, “Fly away, Samantha. Fly high and fast.”
