CovertAssignment is a New Adult, Coming of Age Novel with a strong romantic element. Elle is ready for graduation and full-fledged adulthood: no more living like the leftover of her parent’s divorce. She’s about to graduate with her degree in Information Science (the 21st century term for Library Science) and has a ten-year plan as well-designed as any model for analyzing metadata: earn her JD/MBA, enjoy a couple of years as a single professional, then marry her college sweetheart, Adam, and start her own family. Yet Elle feels like she returned to an alternate universe her final semester. There are pictures of Adam with a classmate who must be surgically enhanced, but he insists he wants Elle. CIA recruiters show up on campus, and they aren’t just interested in recruiting Elle for future employment: turns out she’s already working for them since they’re funding her thesis. Hot operative Preston Raddick is tasked to work with her. Preston isn’t just hot: he’s hot for Elle, but is he offering happy ever after or happy for right now? A fling with Preston could be the beginning of a new life plan, which is exciting and scary, especially with espionage thrown in. Elle needs a predictive model to tell her which decisions have the greater likelihood for happiness… CovertAssignment is about the unexpected turns life can take when making “adult” decisions.

My Thoughts: I thoroughly enjoyed Covert Assignment, and am so relieved that Missy won't be making us wait too long for books 2 and 3! Elle was a great heroine, I found her very relatable. She wasn't whiny or a huge pushover, which was a huge relief (as I feel like this seems to be a recurring theme in New Adult titles). Although I have to admit I'm not a huge math whizz like Elle, I enjoyed watching the adventures her brain and skills got her into. Preston is sexy but elusive and can I just mention how much I LOVE the name of this guy, it just sounds sexy! Haha. There's some serious chemistry between these. Plenty of steamy moments to be had and I can't wait to see where Missy will take them next. Especially after that ending! HOWEVER now many who have already read Covert Assignment might disagree with on this, but I flippin LOVE Adam. I know I should hate him, but I can't, and I really hope there's more of him in the next instalments. Covert Assignment is a fresh contemporary New Adult pick that many Romance fans are sure to love, and it's a real quick read. Go order your copy! Happy Reading!!!
About the Author:
Missy Marciassa loved getting lost in novels from the time she could read, so it’s no surprise she wanted to write. Her very first “novels” were re-writing the books she read to get the endings she wanted in second grade. Missy continued to read and write through grade school and high school.
After becoming rather disillusioned with fiction after writing literary criticism as an English major in college, however, Missy focused on her enjoyment of learning about people and studied psychology. Reading fiction fell to the wayside with all the reading and writing required for college and graduate school, but once Missy became a doctoral candidate, she rediscovered her love of fiction. Then she started getting the urge to write, an urge that wouldn’t go away (she refuses to diagnose it as a compulsion). CovertAssignment is the end result of that urge.
