Sometimes, being in the wrong place at the wrong time is where you need to be for the good things in life to fall into place.

Max Brady is a 25 year old, fresh out of college, ambitious woman that doesn't take crap from anyone, and often uses men before tiring and disposing of them. She’s landed her dream job at the internet search engine company Fiddle. Unfortunately, she is stuck working as an assistant to the company’s CEO, but she’s hopeful that if she plays nice, one day she’ll be promoted.

Catch is an assassin. He’s been working this job for twelve years and now with his family taken care of he is ready to retire. All he wants to do is complete his last assignment, collect his large sum of cash, and then disappear to a nice, quiet place in another country.

When Max makes the huge mistake of sleeping with her boss, she decides to copy some files from his computer to hold as leverage in the event that he may try to fire her. Little does she know, the files hold secrets that can take down her boss and the entire Fiddle company.

That decision changes the course of both of their lives.

Catch is hired to kidnap and kill Max, but instead he chooses to save her life. They go on the run as he tries to formulate a plan to remove the hit on Max, because he believes that she was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. As they spend more time together, Catch’s motivation for saving her life changes with his realization that if anything happens to Max he may be unable to live without her.

{Rating} 4/5 - I really liked it!

"Is this her?" I ask, as I look down at the picture, smoothing a thumb over the woman's face." (page 1, line 1)
An exciting, sexy, fun read. Max is awesome. She's in your face, unapologetic, stubborn, and kick ass. Catch is a complex guy. I wondered how Poirier was going to get us to care about an assassin but she certainly succeeded.

I loved Max and Catch together, their interactions, the way they struck sparks off of each other, their chemistry. Being together is not easy for either of them, Max doesn't trust anyone and Catch is struggling to deal with the emotional toll his job has taken on him. Neither can deny the chemistry between them so they say no strings, just sex, but then what is between them becomes so much more...
"I know this time is going to be different. The moment he touches me everything will be different." (location 1929)
Other than a small lag near the end I thought the pacing was great, it was go, go go, flip the pages as fast as I could. I was excited to read that this is going to be a series with the next one featuring characters that first appeared here, I'll be watching for it. So, if you're looking for a feisty heroine, a complicated alpha male and an exciting storyline definitely give Catch a try.

Oh, and the cover? Gorgeous! I wish I was a redhead...
