Deadly Force (Southern California Violent Crimes Taskforce #3) by Misty Evans

For fans of Scandal, Graceland, and NCIS! 
The third installment in the USA TODAY bestselling Southern California Violent Crimes Taskforce romantic suspense series. 
Other books in the SCVC Taskforce series: 
Deadly Pursuit 
Deadly Deception 

Some secrets can kill… 

NSA agent Bianca Marx is determined to save her marriage, even if it kills her. Which it just might do since she knows a secret about her estranged husband’s latest mission. A highly-skilled assassin is hot on her trail and the only man who can keep her safe doesn’t want anything to do with her. 

She’ll be dead in 24 hours…unless he can save her. 

After his marriage failed, Navy SEAL Callan Reese threw himself into his work. On his last black ops mission, three of his men—three good men who counted on him—were killed. Now PTSD and a military investigation have sidelined him…until Bianca shows up. She claims someone high up in the US government wants her dead, and the assassin after her is also after him. 

The couple that spies together, dies together… 

On the run from the very government they serve, Bianca and Cal only have each other. When they uncover a deadly scandal threatening the nation, they’ll have one chance to save the day…and one last chance at love.

My review:
I really like this series and although this book is only peripherally a Southern California Violent Crimes Taskforce book the folks from the Taskforce show to help one of their own.  This is part of a series but can be read standalone.  I was wishy washy about Callan Reese until about halfway in.  He has been hurt by war, his wife and his own decisions.  Bianca has gifts and quirks but he has known and dealt with those since the fifth grade.  They love each other but may not get the chance to straighten things out between them if he can’t keep her and her brain alive.  Someone is out to kill her and ruin him.  This story is filled with twists and turns and a whole lot of action.  Another fun read from Misty Evans.
