Review: Covert Cover Cracked by Missy Marciassa

Check out my review of Covert Assignment (Covert #1) Check out my review of Covert Interview (Covert #2) I loved the previous novels in this series and wanted to see what else Elle gets herself into. Elle, a newly certified CIA agent’s, life is going well. She’s completed her field training and has a wonderful boyfriend. That is, until he dumps her. So Elle decides to go the route of no-strings and hooks up with Reese. What she doesn’t know is that he’s a navy SEAL. Likewise, he doesn’t know that she’s a CIA agent. They connect and keep hanging out until things get complicated. Preston (he ex-fling and co-agent) and Elle end up on an assignment with Reese and things just get more complicated from then on. I enjoyed this novel. The pacing was fast and things didn’t get boring. In addition to the spy aspect of this novel (that was present in the previous novels) there was a lot more personal drama in this installment which made it an even more interesting than the previous novels. It was definitely my favorite installment so far. Elle was stronger than ever in this novel despite all of the personal crap that she was going through. She has grown a lot as a character over the course of the series and I love watching her develop into a stronger woman. She […]

Review: Covert Interview by Missy Marciassa

Check out my review of Covert Assignment (Covert #1) Favorite Character: Elle. First Line: “Michael Kagan was a man who pretty much got anything he wanted.” My Musings: Covert Interview is the second novel in the Covert series. With this novel, Elle begins her job at the CIA with a 90 day probationary period. But she soon finds that working for the CIA isn’t all that it appeared to be. She’s asked to do some tough things, and she has to figure out whether or not she can go against her morals and beliefs to do what has been asked of her. Throw in some relationship drama and a potential evil villain, and you’ve got yourself a great read! Elle really grew up in this novel. The transition from college life to adult life was the main focus of this novel. It was interesting to see her adapt to it and to find time for her friends, family, work, relationships, and the secrets that came with working for the CIA. There were definitely some shockers that came in this story, ones that left me with that idiotic ‘WTF’ face that no one should ever see. But Elle took it in stride and kept going on with her life. She really became more of an independent woman in this novel, and got to the point where she even stood up to the CIA […]

Favorite Quote(s):  “‘Will we- will we know who-‘ Elle began, but Agent Linden understood her question and gave a simple answer. ‘No. It’s better if you don’t know them: you’re less likely to accidentally give them away.’ That made sense. Elle guessed she’d just have to trust they were there while she and Preston sat there like bait. Bait. Holy. Shit.” Favorite Character: PRESTON! Super secret spy guys… First Line: “‘Have you seen them yet?’” My Musings: You couldn’t possibly imagine the intrigue that I was feeling when I saw this novel on Netgalley. The title prompted me to click on the cover, and the synopsis had me automatically clicking request. Luckily, I was fast approved, and I dove right in! I mean–a book about the CIA? Of course I’m up for it! Elle is a Information Science major. She deals with numbers, models, and data. So when her boyfriend of two years is caught on camera cheating on her, she wishes for a model to tell her what to do. But Adam swears that Elle is the only one for him, that it was a drunken mistake. But Elle isn’t so sure. Then Elle finds out that the company funding her graduate thesis, Anderson Advertising, is a shell company for the CIA and that they’re using her data in order to locate a band of terrorists. So when they send Operative […]
