Two seasoned operatives finally meet their match: each other.

Cillian works for the mysterious Special Branch 20: an organization that runs black ops commissioned by the British government. His specialty is deep undercover assignments with virtually no support. He’s been alone for so long that he no longer knows anything else.

Mal’s also used to being alone. Wanted in several states and even more countries, he’s not allowed in the vicinity of any of his former Navy SEAL teammates. And his current assignment is to track Cillian in order to discover the spook’s endgame. Except he’s no longer sure which one of them is getting played.

Cillian isn’t about to let the mission that’s consumed him for the past several years crumble because an outsider is poking around where he doesn’t belong. But Mal forces his way through Cillian’s defenses—and into his heart—exposing a devastating betrayal that could destroy them both.

Dirty Deeds is book 1 in the Dirty Deeds series which is a spin off of the Hell or High Water series.

It's been awhile since I read a spy novel, like a long time (I've been stuck in the world of contemporary romance I guess it would be called).  Now I remember why I liked them so much.  It was so awesomely nice to have a story that wasn't all laid out or over-simplified.  This was more think on the fly to figure it out with undercover agents, classified info, informants, assassins, hacking, terrorists.

So it was no surprise they were all drawn to each other and that sense of community that constantly challenged them.  Because the only one who could challenge another crazy was one of their kind...

Mal and Cillian are both so alpha that a new word needs to be created just for them.  Of course they both always top so you would think, nope, not gonna happen.  But somehow they did give in to the other, not easily of course, but they did.  Both are like the super top elite in the world of spy vs spy, and both have very troubled pasts.  Also they both have a knack for cyber sex...and public sex.

Because I'm pushing you down on your knees.  You're going to suck me until *I* come.  And if it's good enough, I might let *you* come.

my personal fan pic

This book is short, but you find out so much.  You think they're friends.  You think their enemies.  You think they're alike.  You think they're not.  You think they don't know each other.  You think they do.  Some of the mind ping-pong is clarified-some, not so much.  The main part you don't learn is what is their future, but you do share a wowza moment with them at the end of this story.

Is mise mo namhaid is measa
(I am my own worst enemy.)

I am so beyond looking forward to more of Mal and Cillian's story and all other books in the EE, LTD universe.
