Coreen Evans never suspects that locking eyes with covert agent instructor, Rob Larsen, would lead her to an evening training session at a seedy establishment. Still, between his hot body and luscious lips, she intends to teach him a thing or two about utilizing her assets.
When can a working relationship go a bit too far? When does the adage ‘do it for the job’ become more of a proposition than motivation? Interested? Then you need to read Dangerous Moves.

First off, this is a short story. Although you do feel like you’re in the training studio with Rob and Coreen, things happen fast. I liked that you had to pay attention during this story. If you read too fast, you will miss things that make the story humorous.

Rob is an interesting hero because he’s very drawn to Coreen, but he’s also careful. A CIA commander can’t goof around with a trainee. Then again, he’s still a hunk.

I wasn’t sure what to make of Coreen. I almost felt she was a bit too forward and came across as a tad easy, but I liked that she didn’t seem to take herself too seriously.

I wish this story had a bit more. I want to know what happens next and more details of their world. You get such a small snippet, that as a reader, I felt a bit cheated. I wanted to get more of a sense of who the characters are, but I realize this is a short story, so there is only so much space and time allowed.

If you want a quick read that you'll think about long after the last page, then you should read Dangerous Moves.

I agree with you, Tiger Lily, on that it would have been great to have this story longer! I have read and love all Mary Corrales' books and she has a way of making you want MORE even when the story ends satisfactory! Her characters are all unforgettable, and oh those sexy heroes of hers! SIGH.

Thanks for the review, Tiger Lily. As you wished for more I wanted to let you know that CLANDESTINE EYES through Breathless Press is the sequel to Dangerous Moves.

It's also a short but they're on assignment and the sex is hot. :)
