Special Agent Booker by Mimi Barbour
Mimi can spin a tale that intrigues you, makes you smile, and want more.
Suspense lights up in every page of this fast-paced blockbuster of thrills!
When Sloan Booker’s father dies tragically, he has no other option but to give up his job as an FBI agent and take over his family’s vehicle restoration business in Oahu, Hawaii. Giving up his badge is difficult but having Homeland Security and his old boss request the use of his house in a stakeout, spying on his Muslim neighbors who they suspect are terrorists, is just too damn much for a man already frazzled. It makes no difference that they’ve offered him a partner to be in charge of the surveillance… until he meets the gorgeous divorcee.
Special Agent Alia Hawkins might look more like a model than a cop but looks can be deceiving. Not only does she rescue street kids, fights their battles and transports them to safe homes, but since she lived many years in Pakistan and speaks their language, she’s a sought after agent.
So far, she’s kept her personal life and job separate. But when Alia’s slimy ex-husband threatens to steal her eight-year-old son, she has no choice but to bring him along on her latest undercover assignment – living with a hotshot, sexy as hell agent as his long lost stepsister.
Her life suddenly takes some drastic swerves and she wonders if things will ever slow down.

Review by Shirleen:
Always love reading Mimi’s books. And this one does not fall. The story moves fast with five different things happening But not hard to follow, more like real life when things go a bit hay wire. Luckily, we in real life are not under cover for maybe or maybe not terrorists, a gang war, a 60 year old falling out if a tree, a little bit and a sweet Kitty, ex husband trying to cause mayhem, two dads, missing cat , found cat buy future dad has a fear of fear of needles.
As you sort it out you just have to chuckle. Mimi can spin a tale that intrigues you, makes you smile, and want more. You want every book to be longer to not end. And you never want to say goodbye. Mimi’s books a are like you are right in the book. Good book
Review by Jo-Anne B:
I loved the plot in this story. Sloan didn’t want to leave the FBI but he had to because he had to run his family’s vehicle restoration business after his dad died. So he was living comfortably in Hawaii (Poor guy.
What a place to have to live.) when his old boss wanted to use Sloan’s house to spy on his Muslim neighbours who they think are terrorists. When he was told they were giving him a partner, he thought it wouldn’t be too bad. Until he saw her. She was gorgeous! Between being good at her job and speaking the same language as the neighbours she was perfect for this mission.
Her cover was that she was his long-lost stepsister. But that got hard to stick to when sparks started to fly between them. There was another twist to the plan when Alia’s ex threatened to steal her son. She had no choice but to take the boy along on the mission.
The characters in this story were wonderful. Sloan was raised by three dads. Yep, three of them. He never knew his mother so the three men basically adopted him. When the one he knew as his father died, the other two took his place. Sloan was an adult by this time but knew he was never too old to need a dad – or two.
Even though Sloan wasn’t an agent anymore, he was good at it. Add his sexy good looks and he’s just too much for Alia to resist. You had to admire Alia. She was a very good agent, dedicated to getting kids off the streets and tried to be a good mother. It was sad that she grew up not feeling love from her parents so that she didn’t know how to show love to her son. Then there were the dads. I loved them.
There was always something going on in the fast-paced thriller. I liked the many twists and turns in this story. Not to mention the romance between Alia and Sloan. There’s a great ending too.
