Counterplay by Debra Elise

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Thank you, Debra Elise, for allowing me this opportunity.

“The truth has a way of biting us all in the ass- eventually.”

Debra Elise is a romance author with several published works. She is a coffee addict and a lover of the written word. You can follow Debra Elise on Instagram to stay updated with her books.

Coryn, smart, capable, beautiful, and a highly trained weapon, she is deep undercover, trying to crack what could be a massive case. But a strong jaw and open flirting could be a deadly distraction.

Jackson, smart, sexy, stubborn, and extremely capable, he wants to find the truth. The real fact, even if that means exposing an agent he has a strong attraction to.

A lot is going on in this book, and Debra Elise keeps it all organized and easy to follow. But with every turn of the page, the plot thickens, a new danger lurks, and yet another secret threatens exposure. Despite there being such an involved plot, it all plays out in a very easy to track manner, and the bread crumb of facts that tie it all together is well orchestrated.

I enjoyed all of the layers of this story and that everyone had at least one secret they were protecting from everyone else. This book is filled with action, deceit, and chemistry.

The characters are very well developed, and they each have a backstory that has to lead them to where they are throughout this book. The plot, the twists, the secrets are all so well played. This is a dense novel, filled with so many secrets, so many lies, and so much hidden desire; you will not be able to put it down.

This is the first book I’ve read from Debra Elise, and I hope it isn’t the last. The way this book ends leaves room for a follow-up, and with this fantastic cast of characters, I would say this team is on the case.
