It’s no secret that I have got a serious thing for government agents Mark Vincent and Quinton Mann. I mean really – I absolutely love these boys! So I was very eager to read the third installment of the “Spy vs. Spook” series because I needed to know what was going to happen next with them.

Spy vs. Spook: Book Three
Lately, life is both sweet and sour for intelligence operatives Mark Vincent and Quinton Mann. The sweet is they’re settling into a relationship; Mark has found a condo in Alexandria with the help of Quinn’s mother, Portia; and Mark and Quinn are looking forward to spending the holidays in the Caribbean.
As for the sour, something shadier than usual is going on at Langley. Useless missions and sleepless nights are leaving Quinn exhausted, and then Portia’s life is threatened. When Quinn discovers the accident was no accident and the egomaniacal Senator Wexler is involved, he’s out for blood.
To this point, Mark has stayed out of Quinn’s CIA business. But hurting Quinn and those he loves isn’t on the table, so at Mark’s instigation, they set out together to deal with Wexler. The only catch: it’s the first time Quinn will see Mark at his deadly best, and Mark isn’t sure how his lover will react.
Once again the chemistry is incendiary between Mark and Quinn. With all of the drama in their respective agencies, and the drama with their friends and family, it’s a wonder the two of them have time to get intimate, but when they do it’s still smokin’ hot.
To me this story was really focused on the two of them building their relationship. I loved watching their connection grow, and even though they are still cautious about their hearts, it’s obvious they are so in love with each other. Although I do hate the fact I didn’t get to hear them actually say it out loud.
Like with the other books in this series I really enjoyed the humor and snark, especially from Mark, he can be hilarious at times. Quinn had a lot to deal with because of his mom’s accident and I really enjoyed watching Mark pick up the pieces and take care of business. I adore seeing Mark so possessive, yet also so sweet and caring, despite his vicious reputation.
The only thing that bummed me out was the fact I was at the end of the series – I will really miss these two and certainly wish that Tinnean would write more adventures for these charming tough guys.
