Rock Powers is one of the most successful magicians in Vegas for a reason—he creates illusions too spectacular to believe. But his former assistant, gorgeous Lani Silkwater, pulled off the greatest trick of all: disappearing into thin air the day after they were married. Two years later, Rock can’t resist a clue to Lani’s whereabouts—or the outlandish plan Lani and her mysterious boss propose, if it means a chance to win her back for good…
Working as a magician’s assistant was one of Lani’s strangest undercover assignments, but she never imagined it would be so dangerous—to her heart. Leaving Rock was the right thing for both of them, but with a terrorist group closing in on Vegas, Rock’s talent with sleight of hand is imperative. To save them both, Lani must reveal secrets she’s kept for years, and one of them is how much she loves the sexy magician who stole her heart.
What a fun read! This is my first book from Gina Robinson and I was pleasantly surprised! This is a spy story with an infusion of Maxwell Smart, James Bond, Cloak and Dagger and sprinkled with a little Kobayashi Maru action. (Star Trek reference)
This being the fourth book in the series, I was little lost with all the characters mentioned but the funny moments quickly dispelled my discomfort. I also felt the plot was a little outlandish at times, but it’s a book of fiction and, again, the comic relief made up for it.
Rock was a smokin’ hottie and I can’t believe that Lani left him; even though she did it to protect herself and him. I wouldn’t have left him, but Rock did get her drunk and tricked her into getting married, but that still wouldn’t have mattered to me. I enjoyed the story and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys spy books with espionage, misdirection and humor.
