Another winner from Barbara Freethy5By MaryW fanI don’t think Barbara Freethy can write a bad book! This is the 3rd in her FBI Off the Grid series and may just be the best one yet. Each book is a standalone, telling the story of one of a group of FBI agents who bonded going thru training together. Desperate Play is Wyatt’s story. He’s the loner, undercover guy we’ve had glimpses of in the first books. He meets Avery, a quiet, sweet & sexy astrophysicist while working undercover at her company, after her best friend is murdered. Get ready for plot twists and turns as Wyatt & Avery try to figure out who killed Noelle, who’s selling government secrets, & who wants them dead before they find the answers. Friends, family - everyone is suspect. This book will keep you guessing until the end....and cheering for Wyatt & Avery to find their happily ever after. Read the book....then go get the first two as well, you won’t be sorry.
Desperate Play5By Jen G FARC for honest review with no compensation Desperate Play is book 3 in the Off The Grid:FBI series by Barbara Freethy that is filled with suspense, twists, turns, emotional and keeps you on the edge of your seat and turning the pages to find out what happens next. Wyatt an FBI agent (who we met in the other books) is a loner and undercover agent and has been since he joined the FBI.

Find out who killed her friend? Who is behind it? Once you start reading you will not want to put it down though it is a standalone, reading the previous books in this series will give you a better understanding of the agents and how they interact..can't wait for the next book in this series!!!
Mesmerizing!5By Texas109Desperate Play is flat out wonderful and will have you gasping, twitching, frantically turning pages, and hoping our favorite author writes the next story quickly! Undercover FBI agent, astrophysicist whose best friend has been murdered, a boatload of potential suspects, complicated family dynamics and lots of danger and yes, some heat all add up to a very captivating read. If you are a reader unfamiliar with Barbara Freethy’s work it’s way past time you discover what good writing looks like. Nuff said. Buy and enjoy. I voluntarily reviewed an advance copy of this book. Most highly recommend.
Intriguing....third in series5By LivesfornascarracingAnother wonderful read by Barbara. This is Book Three in the FBI Series of Off The Grid. This is a great series. Got me from page one. Page turner for sure. Loved it and highly recommend. Will keep you interested from page one to the end. I wanted to make this book last but, as usual, I was up late reading as I didn’t want to put it down. Highly recommend to anyone who loves mystery, excitement and fun.
Mystery and intrigue!5By GdesdJust when I thought I knew who dunnit, twists and turns took my mind in a different direction. I love this series!! Wyatt and Avery definitely had baggage to deal with, but they brought out the best in each other. Must read!!
Twisty4By ledossBook three in this series. Plenty of intrigue, questions and twists in this one. Outstanding story and romance to top it all off. There were a couple of places the story bottomed out, then spun back up into the mystery you expect. The whole series is a good read, don’t miss it.
DESPERATE PLAY5By Ellen/OceansideAvery is a an astrophysicist meeting her friend Noelle, when she is murder. A request to go to her apartment, to get a remembrance from their childhood. Will she recognize it. We meet Wyatt working undercover, there is a mole. What draws these two together, and now the killer wants them. There is a leak at the aerospace, where they all work at, who is it, and what does he want. She has given us another emotion, tense plot, that will leave you trying to figure it out. Been a reader of hers for years and she never fails to deliver a great story. As the title says’ “Desperate Play”, with Avery and Wyatt as players
