Covert Mission: Undercover Cop takes place in Thunder Creek Ranch where his bestfriend Luke and his wife Zakia live. The stalker that Zakia had in book one is back to finish the job that he failed to do. This time her best friend will be with her every step of the way but an accident left her with amnesia. Little by little she regains her memory but somehow during her time without memory she is still attracted to Blake. Only Blake was a gentleman and did not cross the line with her no matter what Sam did. When she regains her memory will she allow herself to be happy no matter what?
I liked that the characters in Zakia and her Cowboy were integrated into this book. I was able to see how their relationship has flourished. I was so happy for Blake when it looked like he was going to have his dream come true but all was shattered when his life was hangs by a thread. I also sympathized with Sam because she went through a lot when she was in the military with her accident and the heartache of losing people she loved. There were a couple of editing errors which confused me but not enough to keep me from finishing the story. The only problem that I had with this story was that I wanted to read how the stalker was caught and who was behind in helping him escape when he was being transported to the court. But believe me it was worth the read.
If you have not read book one of this series, Zakia and her Cowboy, I highly recommend it so you can see how it all started with the mission of finding the fugitive. Will Blake accept the secret that Sam has been keeping from him and somehow form a family in the future. Well buy this book and find out how they got their happily ever after.
