Publisher's Summary

There is no one to trust in Nancy Ann Healy’s thrilling new novel, Betrayal.  

FBI agent Alex Toles is relieved to return to work at the NSA after a frightening on-the-job ordeal. Her life partner, Cassidy O’Brien, and Cassidy’s seven-year-old son, have also been instrumental in healing Alex’s wounds.  

But their peace is short-lived when they discover that their good friend - and President of the United States - John Merrow, has been assassinated.  

Little do they know, however, that President Merrow’s death is just the beginning. Even as Alex and Cassidy are forced to confront the loss of their friend and the ramifications that will have on the global stage, they must cope with problems much closer to home.  

Battling intolerance over the nature of their romantic relationship and long-hidden secrets within their families, Alex and Cassidy must confront the truth of their pasts in order to build the future they seek.  

On top of it all, they must confront a conspiracy that spans multiple governments, intelligence agencies, diplomatic services, and international corporations if they are to finally discover the truth about the mysterious group known as the Collaborative - and about themselves.

Way too repetitive

I didn't read the reviews before I purchased this book, which was a big mistake, and waste of money. I read the first book, but figured the author's writing would have gotten better by this book. I was wrong. The writing is way too repetitive. We get it, Alex and Cassidy are in love. I don't have to hear the over the top proclamations of their undying love every third page. It sounds clunky and juvenile, and it gets really old, really fast. The book is long winded, but doesn't really progress much, since so many of the same statements/sentiments are repeated, such as, Cassidy is the most beautiful woman on the planet, and turns heads everywhere she goes, her congressman ex-husband is a bad guy, and doesn't like lesbians, Alex is the best FBI/NSA agent that has ever lived, and everyone who knows her says so. The only problem with that last statement, is Alex has yet to actually prove why she's the best agent who's ever lived, and I don't think getting shot by someone who's never fired a gun before counts. I don't want to trash the whole book, because if the author could get past the "I love you more. No, I love YOU more. No, I love you more than anyone has ever loved anyone, and my 7 year old son is now your son, even though we haven't been together that long, and his legal father is still in the picture, but we'll get our attorneys to fix that"--thing, she could have a decent political thriller on her hands. Cut out all the repetitive filler, and have your characters speak like regular people, and it could be decent. However, I will not be purchasing anymore books in this series.

Betrayal

It’s interesting listening to the audio after having read the series. I didn’t seem to notice it when reading but in the audiobook hearing Alex referred to as the agent so much was really bothering me. Otherwise, I still love this series! It definitely keep my focus because so much is going on. And when I’m reading, I can read faster. Listening I can’t lol. The narrator does a fantastic job with this series.

My book review:

This is a fantastic series! It's very strong on the spy/intrigue/mystery, with a fast pace but the relationship between Alex and Cassidy is just as strong. The author does a great job of weaving this story. My only issue is there are so many characters throughout this story/series that I need them to be referred to the same way throughout. Either by their profession, their first name, last name, or handle but I need just one. It's even harder to keep track when the identifiers change. Can't wait to start the next one!

Cheesy

The love story is a bit cheesy, but the intrigue is catchy and what keeps me listening.

Seriously bad..

Yeah, I listened to the first book understanding it would be a little over the top with the I love you/I love you more dialogue but the storyline was interesting so I decided to add the 2nd book. Complete mistake. There’s about an hour of story if you subtract all the insecure babble between the main characters. Can’t do it. Even having it play in the background, I can’t get over the repetitive words and proclamations of Alex and Cassidy’s undying love for each-other. Sorry, I suggest finding another series.

Looking forward to the 3rd book in the series

I was listening to the book at any free moment including 7 hours drive from one side of the state to the other, and not only I loved it,I was asking myself how can someone write such a complicated and wonderful story, now I am going to move on to the third book.

Wow....Wow....Wow!!!

I'm was BLOWN AWAY!! Nancy Ann Healy is a new author for me, but not anymore!! The story and characters were rich and scarily real! I thought Intersection was a MASTERPIECE, but this sequal is equally as PHENOMENAL! I have to get the rest of the Alex and Cassie stories! Nancy Ann Healy, your choice of Cassandra York as the narrator brought every word you wrote to life...AWESOME!!!! Her voices are FANTASTIC!!

Couldn't wait!

I am so glad this series was already developed before it was taken to audio. The fact that I could jump right into the next book as soon as it was released made my day! Well done. Love the narrator!

Excellent audio.

I loved Betrayal. This is Book 2 in the Alex and Cassidy series. Alex is Still continuing to hunt down evil people. Cassidy trying to keep their life on track. Great plot, but lots of names, allegiances and locations to keep track of. Cassandra York does an excellent job with the narration.

Ok-Good storyline

It was a good story but all the kids are all the characters ran together which I didn’t like. I didn’t like the way it ended without finishing the story.
