Unwrapping a Review of EXIT STRATEGY, an Exit Inc Thriller by Lena Diaz

I am a huge fan of romantic suspense but add lots of action to it, and I’m in heaven. Well, I’ve just had a trip to heaven and back with EXIT STRATEGY, an Exit Inc. Thriller by Lena Diaz. Love this cover too!

Lena Diaz launches her thrilling new series featuring the undercover vigilantes of EXIT Inc. with a skilled operative putting his life—and his heart—on the line for a woman in trouble...

When Sabrina Hightower awakens to the sound of an intruder, she figures he's there to rob her, murder her— or worse. She doesn't expect to be carried off by a muscle-bound stud with male-model good looks... or that he came to rescue her.

Mason Hunt became an enforcer with EXIT Inc. to eliminate the bad guys—terrorists, militia groups, all those who would do America harm. But his latest target is innocent. If EXIT could lie about sultry, strong-willed Sabrina, what darker truths might they be concealing?

Going rogue in the rugged North Carolina mountains, Mason risks everything to keep Sabrina close, especially now that EXIT's lethal assassins are chasing them down. The heat is on... but it's nothing compared to the slow burn of seduction.

~*~           ~*~          ~*~           ~*~          ~*~

Sent to execute an EXIT order on Sabrina Hightower, Mason Hunt wants to be absolutely sure that she’s guilty of the crimes for which she’s been accused by his employer, EXIT Inc. When an ex-enforcer, Devlin Buchanan and his old friend, Ramsey Tate tell him innocents are being targeted for termination, this rubs Mason the wrong way since he became an enforcer to keep the bad guys from injuring innocent people in the first place. If he is unwillingly killing innocents then he’s no better than the bad guys.

Sabrina’s life hasn’t been normal for quite some time. Her brother was killed in a so-called mugging, her grandfather has mysteriously disappeared, and her cousin has her being investigated in regard to his disappearance. Having been labeled a convicted felon and ordered to leave Colorado, she’s now living in North Carolina and is determined to learn as much as she can about the tour company she’s suing for being responsible in her parents’ zip lining accident, killing both of them before her very eyes. The tour company—EXIT Inc. When someone breaks into her home, she does her best to protect her life and escape only to be captured, and dragged into the woods by a sexy yet deadly man who says he’s not going to hurt her unless she’s not as innocent as he’s been told. Innocent of what?

Soon, she and Mason become the hunted and more than a lawsuit is on the line now…their lives are too.

EXIT STRATEGY by Lena Diaz is an action-packed, page-turner, thrill ride of the greatest proportion. I loved every minute of this amazing thriller. This is one of my all-time favorite kind of reads and it did not disappoint.

We were first introduced to the covert organization posing as an international tour company called EXIT Inc. in Lena Diaz’s thriller, TAKE THE KEY AND LOCK HER UP, the last book in the Deadly Games series. I knew when Devlin Buchanan and Emily O’Malley teamed up and teased us with taking on EXIT Inc. that this series was going to be an amazing ride.

I love how Lena makes her characters strong, smart, and wickedly sexy while still vulnerable. In EXIT STRATEGY, we learn that Mason is a good man at heart despite what he does for a living. He’s honorable, trustworthy, and believes in good versus evil. He also carries memories of torture and hatred but doesn’t want that to spill out to touch anyone else, especially Sabrina. Whereas Mason is secretive about his pain and emotional baggage, Sabrina is open, honest, and strong-willed but even she has her fears, and she’s forced to face one of her greatest while trying to stay alive in EXIT STRATEGY.

If you enjoy a cast of characters who you will most likely see again, and again, throughout the series…characters, which are full-bodied, strong, and emotionally open, you will thrill at the Exit Inc. series. This first book in the series starts it off with non-stop action, edge of the seat expectation, and steamy cornfield sex that will have you wishing for your own Exit order.

I highly recommend EXIT STRATEGY, an Exit Inc. Thriller by Lena Diaz because it rocks, it explodes with superb action and thrills, and still gives you a big smile at the end…or rather the end of Mason and Sabrina’s story because stay tuned…the ride has just begun.

Happy Reading Everyone!
