Former Army Ranger turned government assassin
Álvaro Montero and CIA Officer Caiden Cardosa crossed paths two years ago in Vienna,
where their encounter ended less than amicably—despite the explosive sexual chemistry
between them.

Now Caiden is riding a desk at Langley after his
cover is blown. And Álvaro—who was “killed”—has a new identity and purpose as
Delta/D, an operative for the Locke and Keyes Agency, under the leadership of the
mysterious Alpha Orion.

When D and Caiden team up in a deadly black ops
mission, the urge to kill each other will have to take a back seat to the desire for revenge
against the man who betrayed them both. Surviving the mission won’t be easy. Resisting
the passion between them—that might be impossible.

Kept in the Dark 2


Another fantastic read from Charlie Cochet!! One of my top romantic suspense books this year. Also love the humour. It may not be Dex(THIRDS series) or Ace (Four Kings) level but it’s definitely funny. I mean the printer from hell? Damn, that’s relatable!

D and Caiden are smokin’ hot together. Also loved the jealousy. I mean both of them getting jealous??? Sign me up!! This is a dual POV and sort of enemies to lovers. There is lots of action and romance and this is a really great start to rhe series.

It’s cute that the Alpha Orion team is named after the constellation. I first thought it had something to do with greek letters (also I’ve zero knowledge in astronomy).Loved the whole team. I wonder if each member will get a book. Which will be awesome! I’m really looking forward to the next book(Si’s). Can’t wait!! Don’t want to say much as I don’t want to spoil it for anyone.

Recommended to everyone who loves romantic suspense. Also if you’re a fan of Charlie’s, this os a no brainer.

Kept in the Dark 1


“You don’t need to be a designer to know how not to decorate your house,”
D said, scowling at the vintage floral loveseat across from the blue velvet couch. “I think
my grandmother had a couch like that. Except it was vacuum sealed in plastic. Nothing
like sitting on a plastic-lined couch in the summer with no AC.”

Caiden gasped. “Wait, you had a grandmother?”

“Have. Yes.”

“Which means you had a mother.”

“Have a mother. Yes.” D squinted at him.

“Where are you going with this?”

“Well, damn.”


Caiden shrugged. “I was under the impression you emerged from the
darkness below. Clawing yourself out from the dirt, like a zombie or a great evil that’s
come back to life after a misguided loved one buried you in Stephen King’s Pet

D didn’t appear impressed. “Funny.”

“What does the Dark Lord look like?” Caiden asked, moving to inspect one
of the pillars between two bookcases. “Was he like Tim Curry in Legend or sexy and
British like Tom Ellis in Lucifer?”

“He was your height, blondish hair, with green eyes. A mouthy motherfucker
who never shut up because he was a smart little shit who thought he knew

“Wow. That’s pretty specific.” Caiden nodded, removing his tablet from
inside his messenger bag. “A mouthy motherfucker and a smart little shit. Sounds like an
interesting guy.”

“Sounds like a certain pain in my ass,” D hissed from behind him.
