The Tate Brothers were raised to protect what is theirs…

Navy SEAL Wolf Tate is on a mission of vengeance. He’s willing to do whatever it takes to infiltrate the lair of his arms-dealing enemy—and rescue the mother he never knew. To do this, he’ll need more than his father’s fortunes or his brothers-in-arms. He must find a way to kidnap his enemy’s daughter for leverage. There’s just one problem: She is also one of Wolf’s closest friends—and the only woman he’s ever loved…

For years, Olivia de Santis has been waiting for Wolf to take her in his arms and make her dreams come true. But she never imagined that he’d sneak into her bedroom one night…and take her as his hostage. Olivia knows she should resist him—and stay loyal to her own family. But how can she deny the burning justice of Wolf’s mission, and the blazing desire in his eyes—even if giving into the heat of the moment can put her in grave danger?

The Undercover Billionaire (Tate Brothers, #3)Wolf Tate is on a mission, but in order to find and free the mother he never knew, he must kidnap one of his best friends, the only woman he ever loved, the daughter of his gravest enemy.
Should be doable, but is it? Jackie Ashenden’s THE UNDERCOVER BILLIONAIRE has everything a reader could want, sizzling passion, an emotionally charged plot, high danger, high tension and we should be off and running, right?

Trust me, Ms. Ashenden can write, but this just didn’t have that “chemistry” I needed to glue myself to every page. I wasn’t sure I liked the hero all that much, he was just lacking something, call it “a fire in his belly or something.” Sure he was passionate about his mission, but whatever was between himself and Olivia just didn’t scream out as electric feelings...but lust, yes.

Olivia’s sheltered life comes out in spades, she seems too na├»ve about the world. I could not fathom she could be so clueless about her father or the man he was, not in the twenty-first century.

Will these two overcome all that is before them and can they BOTH live with the choices and actions Wolf has taken? Lots of sizzle, lots of steam, but through it all, I just couldn’t believe in this one.

I received a complimentary ARC edition from St. Martin's Press!
