- Book 6 of Slye Temp
Book 6 in the hot Slye Temp series from New York Times bestseller Dianna Love brings past lovers together in high-action, face paced romantic adventure.
He's the last man she'll trust and the only one who can save her.
Slye Temp agent Dingo Paddock walked away from Valene Eklund seven years ago to protect her from a deadly organization, but the woman can't stay out of trouble. Valene hasn't forgiven Dingo for breaking her heart when he disappeared without a word. The last thing she'll allow is his interference with her new client, whose contract will dig her out of financial ruin. She's lucked into a deal that only comes along once, but Dingo believes the price is too high – her life - and now the organization he destroyed to keep her safe has returned to exact vengeance on Dingo. Getting their hands on the one woman Dingo would walk through fire for? Priceless.
If Dingo and Valene can't overcome their past and learn to trust again, an assassin will kill a key global figure on US soil, igniting an international conflict. But they can't save the world until they figure out how to save each other first.

If you had the chance to be with "the one that got away," would you take it?
Dingo Paddock left Valene Eklund 7 years ago after she came too close to discovering some very bad men that wouldn't hesitate to kill her if they thought she meant anything to Dingo. Watching from a distance, Dingo keeps an eye on Valene as she moves on with her life. When Valene is contracted to find a scroll that could make her financial dreams come true, she inadvertently brings the weight of several groups on her. Between the Koreans, Mexicans, CIA and Dingo's Slye Temp agency, Valene is in a shitload of trouble that only Dingo can get her out of. Dingo vows to protect Valene at all costs, but what will it cost her heart when he inevitably leaves her again?
STOLEN VENGEANCE is book 6 in the Slye Temp series and can be read as a standalone. This is the first book in the series that I've had the fortune of reading, and I really liked it. The suspense was incredibly well-written, and the romance was palpable and super sexy. I admit to laughing like a 10-year-old boy at the name Dingo; it is one of those names that you can't help chuckling to yourself when you read it. That, combined with the name Valene, make these two MC's hands down the worst named characters ever (outside of the space/fantasy genre).
Even though the names were cringe-worthy, I really did adore both characters. Valene was such a badass, I'd love to hear more about her and her background, maybe a novella on her ex and his boyfriend (yummy!). Dingo was the typical Alpha male Neanderthal character, but even he had a good depth of character that I appreciated. Now, Sabrina...that chick is a BITCH! I almost don't want to read her story (coming up next) since she was coldhearted and ignorant. But I totally will, if only because you don't often get to see a woman running a secret organization like that. There wasn't a ton of sex in the story, but that's OK...it was good enough to stand on its own without it. Adventurous, exciting and suspenseful, STOLEN VENGEANCE really delivered it all.
Bottom line: this was an excellent book that made me put the rest of the Slye Temp series books on my to read list. I can't wait for more!
