Review: The Caregiver by Astrid 'Artistikem' Cruz

Scarlett Lang always dreamt of becoming an Interpol agent. When her hard work pays off and she's given the chance to work as an undercover agent with London's biggest drug lord, Armand Sayer, she can't help being ecstatic about it.
She's employed by Armand's sister (to aid in his recovery from a gun attack) as both caregiver and bodyguard. Her resourcefulness in both areas helps her win much more than Armand's trust, to the dismay of both his right-hand man and her ex-boyfriend / colleague.

As she makes her way into the business she swore to help tear down, she's faced with the dilemma of choosing between being loyal to her profession or her heart. And we all know it can't be both.

Interpol Agent, Scarlet Lang, finally gets her big break and goes undercover. While employed as Armand Sayer's caregiver she must face a dilemma of being loyal to her career or falling for London's biggest drug lord.

Overall, this was a good book. Although short, it had a decent plot. It had a lot of good stuff drug dealers, espionage, undercover cop from a bad family, etc. At times I found that the writing could have expanded on the details, which could come across as clunky, as it was a short novel.

I would have like a bit more character development, but that's sometimes hard to do with shorter books. I loved how it the last half of the book was no stop action and ended with a cliffhanger.

My Rating:
