Their next move could mean life or death...
FBI criminal profiler Madison Harper understands dangerous minds. Tough, tenacious, with nerves of steel, she's the best of the best. So is her new partner, Gabriel Roarke, a crack CIA operative who likes to do things his way. When the two are forced to jointly head up a task force investigating murder in high places -- it's no surprise that sparks begin to fly.

As Madison and Gabriel race through a shadow world of power, politics and deadly secrets, the passion that simmers between them soon ignites. But a clever killer at the top of his game has challenged Madison to play to the very end. Now all she can trust is her instincts - and Gabriel, the one man reckless enough t keep her alive...

I'm going to go by memory since I read this book in April. Hopefully I remember the story.

Madison Harper is an FBI top criminal profilers, who was just wrapping up one of her big case when her boss change the plan and put her into latest case that is top secret. Cullen Pulaski, her godfather, is well known richest man in America, had a suspicions that someone is killing off the key players of the Accord. With the White House approval, Cullen order a task force to investigate his believe. He assigned Madison and Gabriel to be the two people in the task force team.

Before Gabe join in the task force team, he was also pull out of his undercover mission. A mission that he was working on for three years. And he was not happy about being pull out of that mission. When he meet Madison, he was not happy to share command with "proflier" either. Unknown to him, Madison feel the same way. Both recruited or call in people to make their own team, which made the dislike with each other more annoying. Both strong willed and are used to do their own thing, neither expected to find attraction between them and nothing they can do to avoid it. When a close family friend die right in front of Madison, she turn to Gabe for comfort and their well to fall in love developed.

But while they join force to solves the mystery crime, and knowing they must work together and outsmart the killer, because people are dying and the Accord is in jeopardy, they must work quickly because time is ticking and when they discover that Madison is the target then no one is safe. Even when killer is hitting so close at home.

EndGame is an action suspense crime with romance. Good writing depth and plot. And wonderful characters. I really enjoy the book!

And I'm always look forward to reading more of Dee Davis' books. I've read couple of Davis' other books many years ago and have enjoy those too. Her writing are always driven in depth as well with plot and characters you can feel comfortable with. My two stand alone favorite of David were Eyes of the Storm and Chain Reaction. I'm looking forwarding to read her latest A-Tac Series Book, which I will read soon.

When you mentioned criminal profilers, it reminded me of the series on TV, Criminal Minds, that I watched sporadically when I go home. Love that show.
