Mission: Her Safety by Anna Hackett
Series: Team 52 #5
Published: May 20, 2019 by Anna Hackett
Genre: Suspense Romance
After Dr. Ty Sampson catches a mysterious female intruder in his home and lab, he’s obsessed with finding out who she is and what she wants. He’s a man who trusts very few people and hates anyone in his space. His role as Team 52’s lead scientist brings him into contact with a host of powerful, ancient artifacts, so he knows the woman must be after something dangerous and he refuses to let her succeed.
River Elliott-Hall is good at finding things and prides herself on always getting the job done. When a very valuable painting by a master is stolen from a famous museum, it is her job to get it back. The trail leads her to the bright lights of Las Vegas and she’s heard rumors of the covert, black ops Team 52. But as she investigates if they know anything about the painting, she finds herself drawn into a battle of wits with a big, bad-tempered, and far-too-handsome genius.
Life has taught River and Ty to guard their hearts, so as these two circle each other, they warily agree to work together. Because it soon becomes clear that the painting is more than just a painting, and someone with a dangerous plan is working behind the scenes. Fighting their intense chemistry, Ty and River—along with Team 52—will risk everything to save the day, and both find themselves battling the unfamiliar needs to claim, protect, and keep each other safe.
Mission: Her Safety was another enjoyable Team 52 book and I loved watching the crusty Ty actually out in the field. Filled with tons of action and a sexy romance, this was a great addition to what’s a truly unique series. I love learning about all the artifacts in each book and imagining the what-ifs of their origins.
One of the best things about an Anna Hackett book is that the heroine is always tough, competent, and not afraid to speak her mind. River, an ex-MI6 agent, is used to pushing others away and relying on Ty and the rest of the team is definitely an adjustment for her. Of course, River can hold her own in a fight and she doesn’t need Ty to rescue her but I loved watching her learn to lean on someone else. Ty is immediately attracted by River and he wants to help her even if she did break into his house. Ty is also used to working alone, mostly because he’s set in his ways and likes things done right.
Things start off a bit rocky between Ty and River but they quickly learn to work together and the mystery of the painting is too intriguing for either of them to pass up. I can’t wait for more in this series!
4 stars – it was enjoyable
