Review: Fatal Deception by April Hunt

Author: April Hunt
Publisher: Forever
Publication Date: November 2020

Roman Steele learned a hard lesson about trusting others. While serving his country, he put his faith in the wrong person and lost a leg for his loyalty. So far, civilian life suits him---as long as he doesn't have to deal with anyone. But when he's called in to investigate a break-in at a high-security lab, he finds himself butting heads with the lead virologist, a woman as infuriating as she is beautiful.

When criminals break into Isabel Santiago's lab and steal a deadly virus, she's desperate to find the culprits before they turn her research into a weapon. But first, she must put her trust in the brooding security expert who sees danger around every corner. As she and Roman race to track down the culprits, these two unlikely partners find there's more at stake for them than they ever imagined possible---but only if they stop the enemy in time.

Fatal Deception is the third book in the Steele Ops series.  This is Roman's story. His company is called in to investigate the theft of a deadly virus from a seemingly secure research facility.  Isabel is the doctor working on finding a cure for the virus.  This series is quickly becoming a favorite of mine.  The stories keep getting better and better and never disappoint. 

This has it all...a great love story and an action packed and intriguing mystery.  I loved the dynamic between Roman and Isabel.  There is nothing I love more than a brooding wounded warrior meeting a strong woman who breaks through all of his barriers.  Isabel was a great character.  I also love a strong and intelligent female lead.  This couple had amazing chemistry.   

The suspense plotline had me on the edge of my seat.  Especially given the time we are in right now.   I loved the twist that was thrown in toward the end.  The characters from the other books rounded out the book nicely.  I love the banter between the brothers and the rest of the team.  It always makes me laugh.  So far, this series has covered a serial killer, a cult and a deadly virus.  I can't wait to see what comes next!
