Blog Tour: Review: Covert Assignment by Missy Marciassa

Covert Assignment

Covert Assignment is a New Adult, Coming of Age Novel with a strong romantic element. Elle is ready for graduation and full-fledged adulthood: no more living like the leftover of her parent’s divorce. She’s about to graduate with her degree in Information Science (the 21st century term for Library Science) and has a ten-year plan as well-designed as any model for analyzing metadata: earn her JD/MBA, enjoy a couple of years as a single professional, then marry her college sweetheart, Adam, and start her own family.

Yet Elle feels like she returned to an alternate universe her final semester. There are pictures of Adam with a classmate who must be surgically enhanced, but he insists he wants Elle. CIA recruiters show up on campus, and they aren’t just interested in recruiting Elle for future employment: turns out she’s already working for them since they’re funding her thesis. Hot operative Preston Raddick is tasked to work with her. Preston isn’t just hot: he’s hot for Elle, but is he offering happy ever after or happy for right now? A fling with Preston could be the beginning of a new life plan, which is exciting and scary, especially with espionage thrown in. Elle needs a predictive model to tell her which decisions have the greater likelihood for happiness…

Covert Assignment is about the unexpected turns life can take when making “adult” decisions.

My thoughts (Theo~):  This is not your typical love story that you just await for it to happen and cross your fingers every single once in a while. Heck no! This is not about crazy sex or amazing skills in bed, this is sweet, romantic, a once in a lifetime chances!

Elle is a college student, ready to change the world and make everything feel better. It is all about the perception of the programming, not the programming itself. I would like to mention that if you do not hold a general idea about dates and programming don’t be afraid; you will understand them in this book. But as a girl whose major were informatics in High School and finished with a degree to prove that I can say that I’ve enjoyed this far more I’ve anticipated.

The story evolved around Elle who gets brutally cheated by her so-loving beautiful boyfriend that also knows everything about programming. They complete each other, but after the absurdity of being cheated on and everyone to know about it since the pictures ended on the internet, she feels lost and not ready to even punch the bastard.

So she stays calm and waits. For what? Even I have no idea. But she just stands in stand-by and hopes for a change, and those changes does not wait to appear. Right after the Christmas holiday she is back to classes and to her surprise some CIA agents appear with some forms of employment for the government right after graduation. She does not hope for anything, since her ideas are not that big, but when her professor asks her into his office she goes, like she always does when they are working on her program.

Not little is her surprise when she sees that two of the CIA agents that recently conducted the presentation in her class are there and among them is another one. Typical tall, dark and handsome. But she still has to sort her things with her ex-still?-boyfriend, and she is absolutely sure that he will never look her way more than once.

But she is wrong. He does expect nothing more than sex, and he is frank about that, but he also backs down when the boyfriend things come into plain view. So, Elle, for the sake of all the time she spent with Adam she gives him another shoot, but when he is trying to make her do the naughty stuff with her she just feels dirty and not ready so she pushed him away.

One thing leads to another and Raddick is back to game and ready to rock her world.

Lots of secrets are waiting to be discovered. Terrorists are here to make her give the information. Bad people want her. Everything bad is about to happen. Will they survive? Will the CIA save the one they employed? Will everything be alright?

 

Happy readying everyone~!
