It was quite a good story, but a few things annoyed me. Kari and Slade had a one night stand five years ago, but the number of times they both thought of it during the first part of the story was incredible. And every time, it distracted them from what they should have been doing. This was even after it was mentioned that Slade was always very focused and compartmentalised, yet he got lost in his memory of that night in the middle of a mission! It felt as if the author was trying too hard to make a point. I also felt that there was too much emphasis on sex. Most of the first two-thirds of the book was about sex, and it felt like this was to cover lack of plot and action. I think this book could have been better had it only been two-thirds the length. There were also some editing issues which always bug me.
