Discover New York Times bestselling author Cherrie Lynn’s exciting new series, featuring a team of elite military hackers who will do whatever it takes to protect their country and the women who enter their dark and dangerous world.

Ex–Air Force hacker Jace Adams is the best at what he does. There isn’t a system he can’t infiltrate or a country his team can’t topple. But when he finds Lena Morris, the woman he hates most in the world, on his doorstep, the last thing he wants to do is help her. Or is it really Lena?

Lindsey Morris can’t believe her twin sister, Lena, is missing, with only a cryptic text to find the man Lena once betrayed. But as easy as Jace is to look at, getting him to agree to help her find her sister is a lot harder. He refuses to put his team at risk, until they find out the enemy they’re facing may be one they have in common…

As Lindsey and Jace race against the clock to save her sister, their shaky truce begins to morph into a fire they can't control. But their lack of trust might be exactly what gets them killed.

This was really good! A great plot with steady pacing and a hot romance to spice things up.

Lindsey and Lena are identical twins - and polar opposites. Lena royally screwed over Lindsey's college crush. So years later, when Lena goes missing and her last text sends Lindsey to Jace's front d ...more

"It didn't help matters that his T-shirt could scarcely contain his muscles, and the way his jeans hugged his hard thighs made her mouth water."

5 Stars

I love a good romantic suspense book, and this one is one of the best I have read! Some times Romantic suspense has a tendency to not focus that much on the romance but on the crime and action that ends up as the main thing in the book and then a little romance. Books like that are not for me ...more

Lindsey and her twin Lena are identical twins but polar opposites in character. Lindsey is rather shy, wholesome and an introvert, Lena is vampy; sly & wily. The only children of parents who had them late in life, while they have a strong bond, Lena’s callous attitude leaves Lindsey more often not f ...more

Lindsey and her twin sister Lena couldn’t be more different as Lindsey prefers to keep to herself and is a bit of a nerd while Lena is outgoing and a magnet for trouble.

This was a real fun read, with lots of secrets and ups and downs. Lindsey ends up being way cooler than any one gave her credit for; Jace finally saw a little bit of light at the end of the bitter tunnel; and OMG, I hated Lena, lol.

SUPER curious to read more in this series! ...more

Cherrie Lynn is a new to me author, and OH MY HELL WHERE HAVE I BEEN?!

3.5 Stars. Not a bad first attempt for someone who so far has only written contemporary romances. The beginning was very strong, it immediately pulls you into the story and makes it hard to put down. Unfortunately, most secrets were revealed very early on, which killed the momentum a bit. Then we la ...more

Reviewed at Keeper Bookshelf

DEADLOCK draws the reader in quite intensely from the start and that edge of the seat reading feeling doesn’t leave any time soon. There is world building, there has to be to some extent, and we get not only the extreme hatred that Jace has for Lena but his confusion and ...more

I saw this title on NetGalley and while I had never read this author before I was intrigued and decided to give it a shot.  Jace is a hacker who was thrown out of MIT because of Lena, for reasons only Lena knows.  Lindsey is Lena's twin sister and when she gets a mysterious text from her sister, dir ...more

I love a good spy/hacker book so I was intrigued by the story from this new to me author, Cherrie Lynn. This story was a really enjoyable read, despite the fact that I like a little more romance with my suspense. (They dance around each other but barely kiss by the 60% mark.)
