    Every time Samantha A. Cole writes a book, I'm giddy just wanting to get my hands on it. This book was so darn good. It's a wonderful story of a mature couple, Brad and Avery. Both have been in the military and are semi retired. When they go on a vacation with Brad's daughter Lori, and her boyfriend, they don't know that someone evil has spotted Avery and has revenge on his mind. Avery and Lori are kidnapped and that means that Brad and Cameron swing into action to get their ladies back. Brad ca Every time Samantha A.

Who has taken the women and what does he want? You will get totally sucked into this book as Samantha weaves her twists and turns in this book. It will grab you and keep you engulfed in the story. It is so nice to see a story that features an older mature couple who are comfortable in their own skins and who deal with the sexual aspects of a body that isn't "young" anymore. I totally loved this book and loved seeing characters from "Handling Haven".

    I loved this book. This is the second Delta Force/Demios crossover book. Oh, my Avery and Brad, the two main characters who we met briefly in Handling Haven are sp yummy. I was thrilled to read how their romance evolved and about their pasts. Samantha tells a great story and these characters are so well suited for each other. I love that they are well into middle age and not in there 20 like so many books now a day. This was well written and true to life. Of course, nothing goes smoothly when th I loved this book.

    Brad and Avery’s story was so good! While on vacation something happens and a team of special forces must come to the rescue. I enjoy all the covert missions and the alpha males coming to the rescue. It has some characters that cross over from other series so they made it extra good. It may be a novella but it in jam packed with a great storyline!

    I loved this novella, having previously met Brad and Avery in Havens book I was excited to know they were going to get their own book. This novella is not only filled with drama and suspense but it’s ultimately a love story. Just because we’re older doesn’t mean love has passed us by. This is re affirmed within this story. As always we catch up with a few of our favourite characters, not all but some lol. I was on the edge of my seat with this book.

    Another fantastic book! Brad and Avery take a vacation to Aruba. It is supposed to be 7 days of fun in the sun. When they arrive at the airport, Avery senses someone watching her. Has someone from her past caught up with her? What happens next kept me on the edge of my seat through the entire book! Definite must read!

    A fast paced page turning book that should be added to the top of your TBR list. Brady and Avery were the perfect H/h and seeing old Trident and Deimos friends was just an added bonus. The right blend of tension and action keep you reading and the flow was fantastic.

    Delta Force Colonel Brad Barton and ex Black Ops Agent Avery Knapp have earned themselves a vacation in paradise to help them celebrate their relationship. While in Aruba, Brad plans on introducing Avery to his adult daughter Lori, who, in return plans on introducing her dad to Cameron, the Marine she is dating. It sounds like heaven, right? Except, when you are from the world of Black Ops, you can never fully leave it. When Avery feels as if someone is watching her on the Island, she reaches ou Delta Force Colonel Brad Barton and ex Black Ops Agent Avery Knapp have earned themselves a vacation in paradise to help them celebrate their relationship. While in Aruba, Brad plans on introducing Avery to his adult daughter Lori, who, in return plans on introducing her dad to Cameron, the Marine she is dating. It sounds like heaven, right? Except, when you are from the world of Black Ops, you can never fully leave it. When Avery feels as if someone is watching her on the Island, she reaches out to her covert contacts for some intel and possible back up and what they discover is bone chilling. It seems that Avery’s final assignment as an undercover agent has come back for revenge and doesn’t plan on letting her leave the island of Aruba alive. When Avery and Lori go missing, it’s up to Brad, Cam and operatives from Deimos, Trident Security and Delta Force to rescue them before it’s too late. Samantha A Cole did a fabulous job of bringing together characters from three separate series in a joint rescue mission flawlessly. Fans of her writing will recognize characters from both Deimos and Trident Security, while Susan Stoker fans get a few glimpses of her Delta Force heros. This book is action backed with not only intrigue and suspense but plenty of romance as well! I really love that Brad and Avery act like newlyweds and are caught up in their new romance even though they are are a older couple age wise. Avery is a complete and total bada$$. She may have left her duties as an undercover agent behind years ago, but she still has it and will not be taken down easily. Brad is no slouch either, although he’s happy to hand over the reigns to everyone’s favorite black ops operative Carter since he’s way too close to the situation with both his woman and his daughter having been taken. Lori and Cameron, while not the main focus of the book are a really sweet couple that I hope the author revisits in a future story. Cheating the Devil is truly a whirlwind of book that had me finishing in one sitting! It’s a fast and fun read that incorporates everything that Samantha A Cole does best . . . a well developed plot, characters with depth, romance with extreme heat, action from start to finish, and, a visit from everyone’s favorite spy who never fails to show up to help save the day. 5 stars!

Leaving her job to focus on helping the victims/injured special forces service men and women. Little did she know her final mission was about to catch up with her. Brad is a typical alpha male. I personally love it. But when Brads world is turned upside down, will he still be able to do what he has been trained to do. Can he save his lover and his daughter? I loved the book and the way Samantha entwine's the charchters from her other series'. A mission is not the same without Carter making an appearance and a few dead bodies left behind. I can't wait for more to come from Samantha and by the looks of the 'coming soon' notices in the back. We are in for a treat.

She has the touch of bringing you to the edge of your seat. You just can't read her books fast enough. Her stories are always tense and exciting. She throws the romance in and she has written another mind blowing book. Samantha Cole and her Cheating the Devil has become a number one best seller!!! congrats girl!! you did it!!!

She's a nurse now. We met her first in Handling Haven. Brad is the Commanding officer from Susan Stoker's Delta Force. The chemistry is great between them and I had to remember that I wasn't reading about some twenty somethings, well until Samantha reminded me with a comment about age and dryness.

Loved the cameos by characters and enjoyed the roasting of Ian (who doesn't make an appearance but is referenced).

These books are love stories with a twist. Always carrying the underlying message of family is forever, and for the men Of special it is another day until it is one of their own. Taking a well earned holiday, Avery and Brad head to Aruba along with his daughter Lori and her boyfriend Cameron ( whom brad is not at all fond of, even if he is military). This awesome foursome get to spend some quality time together, until Avery’s sensors tell her someone is watching. Trying to push it aside she knows that something is going to go down. Never imagining it will be herself, the target. When the girls go missing after a shopping expedition, Brad uses everything he has to get his girlfriend and daughter back. With the help of Carter, Jordyn (my favs, but please don’t tell the Trident men, they might get offended) and Cameron along with Jase, Kell, Troy and other Deimos, Detla and Trident members to source and get their girls back… But with a man and a huge grudge, a number of places they could be, the group will have to turn to the family involved itself to get the answers. In typical Samantha Cole style it ends in a blaze of bullets, threats and of course saving the women, it won’t be without casualties.

Avery put her career with the CIA before any hopes of a family. But once she reached saturation point and retrained as a nurse, she kind of missed not having a partner.

But as per usual everything goes a bit pear shaped and Avery's past comes back to haunt her and puts Brad's daughter in danger too. First romantic vacation and meeting your others half's daughter and her boyfriend was always going to be a bit stressful but Avery did not figure on this level of stress! Brad is fab as the long absentee dad who just wants to be dad and grill the boyfriend. But said boyfriend is a bit more like him than he thought! Whilst Lori could have guilt tripped Brad, she is a level headed girl who knows what his job entailed and she was happy to be with him when she could. Cameron was brilliant. He wanted to make a good impression but wasn't a doormat to Brad either. Great mix of family dysfunction and danger! Later in life sex handled with care and dignity but still hot enough to melt the sheets!

I was intrigued by Avery when she was first introduced to us in Handling Haven and I'm glad we learn more about her and Brad in this book. It was also so nice to see some familiar but ever present faces and I love that about all of Samantha's books - she knows as a reader we want to keep past characters alive and popping by every so often and that what she skilfully has managed in all of these books. You don't have to have read any of the previous books, whether it be in this series or the previous ones, but if you have, you will catch glimpses of those we have come to love and for this, I love Samantha and her dedication to her 'team'. My only grumble is that now I have to wait for my next glimpse and I'm not sure whose story I want to read most....I guess only time will tell whose tale this will be as there are many more characters to get to their HEA in this beautifully crafted and brilliantly executed series!

It started really innocent with a vacation in Aruba to get to know the friend of Brad's daughter Lori. But then Avery's past catches up with her and she and Lori are kidnapped. Now it is up to Brad and his friends - especially Carter and Jordyn, which are my favorite couple of the Trident Security series - to find them in time. This is a book I will read over and over again!

Avery has been a CIA agent, an operative for Deimos and now serves as a nurse for wounded special ops injured. She ha a very high security clearance and can work with their wounded. When she works with Haven (Handling Haven), she meets Colonel Brad Barton (Tank), a divorced commander with a long memory, a longer career, and a hard body. He thinks Avery is amazing and their common experiences and background make them the perfect couple. On vacation, Avery's past comes up to smack them, in the form of an old enemy who has sworn vengeance. Some old friends fly in to help: Carter, Jordyn, Jase, two Deimos operators, and of course, some remote help from Nathan and Ghost. There is a happy ending with some suspense first. An older romance always works well and this one is better than most.

    Brad & Avery Samantha Cole’s Trident Universe has multiple series that all interconnect with each other. It’s an outstanding BDSM/Military/Special Ops/Security/Action/Suspense/Romance Series. (While this book is in Samantha Cole’s spin off series Deimos, it also is apart of the Kindle Worlds Special Forces.) I read this book a year and a half ago and the other books available at that time, and I have not found another series with these themes as good as this one is since, so I decided to do a re- Brad & Avery Samantha Cole’s Trident Universe has multiple series that all interconnect with each other.

Definitely follow the authors reading order to get the most out of this series. Brad is a Colonel in Delta that falls in love with Avery a former Deimos operative, while vacationing with Brad’s adult daughter, Avery and his daughter are kidnapped. It’s a race for Brad and his associates to find them before they are killed. It was really nice to read a book with both an older Hero and an older Heroine.

    I love reading new books by Samantha A Cole and Cheating the Devil is just fantastic. I haven't read all the Deimos, Trident Security or Doms of the Covenant yet but I'm slowly working on them. But I have read the prequel to Cheating the Devil which is Handling Haven and highly recommend reading it first as it plays a huge part in this novel. Brad and Avery go on a well needed and earned vacation to Aruba before Haven's wedding.

    You’ve done it again Samantha. Loved it. It was a bit darker than the other Trident/ Deimos books, but warranted by the story. Enjoyed catching up with familiar characters and the introduction of a few new ones, even though they may not appear in future books. Having enjoyed Susan Stokers Delta Force Heroes, it was great to have them mentioned in the epilogue (not giving anything away). I really liked the fact that Avery, a former agent, was the main focus of the book. It was great to see a woman You’ve done it again Samantha. Loved it.

    Special Forces: Operation Alpha: Cheating the Devil Great read as with all of this author's books. Brad and Avery met while work in another mission. Instant attraction for both. Brad never thought he would ever meet anyone after his divorce or want to marry. Avery a 50+ year old retired mission worker never married could not believe how in turned the Two were together. Then they take a vacation together and the past comes looking for revenge against Avery. Can Brad and his men save her before it i Special Forces: Operation Alpha: Cheating the Devil Great read as with all of this author's books. Brad and Avery met while work in another mission.
