I had some high expectations for this couple. Angus has been obsessed with Lassiter to the point of being a broken drunk mess. Nari was this smart, classy shrink out of place with all the outcast agents on Force's team. I wanted her backstory so badly. I wanted to know why she was working with all those bad boys. I knew I would enjoy this book because Rebecca Zanetti is so talented, but I didn't know how much I would love this book. Angus and Nari were everything I hoped for. Angus was just so deliciously tortured. I knew that Lassiter murdered Angus' sister, but the pain and guilt that this book gave us reader omg. No wonder Angus drinks to numb the pain. My heart bled for him. Nari's past was a bit of a surprise for me. I liked the amount of depth it gave her. In the other books I liked Nari, but she was always closed off. I felt like finding out her background made her real to me. Both super smart and stubborn it was fun watching Angus and Nari dance around each other, but OMG when they came together it was explosive. I loved every bit of their relationship. This book kept me on the edge the whole read. It was almost non stop action. I truly didn't know what would happen next. I also didn't know who the killer was until it was revealed. Angus and Nari had more lives than a cat. Both kicked major ass too. I love a bad ass hero but omg when you have a kickass heroine it's so much hotter. There was tons of time with my favorite Wolfe. He's just so yummy. I enjoyed time with all the past couples. They feel like family so it's nice to see how they are all doing. I loved the ending. Well really I loved the whole book. I hope Jethro gets his own book. I totally recommend this book. I recommend the whole series.....actually I would recommend all of Rebecca Zanetti's book. She is an amazing author and I have never read a book from her that I didn't love. https://jessicasoverthetopbookobsessi...

Twists and turns make this a gripping and enthralling read from start to finish This book wraps up the series arc and I’m happy to hear that there will be more books. This book stays on my keeper shelf and expect I will be reading it again. Roscoe fake snoring. Hilarious. I received a copy of this from NetGalley. I also purchased a copy to share.

    Mindy Lou's Book Review

    I'm so happy to see Angus getting the respect he deserved from the very beginning. Driven was everything I was hoping it would be for his story. There was a lot to prove here and I think the author did a fantastic job of wrapping it all up. I'm not sure if that means this series is ending, but I really hope it's not. She really could keep these guys going for more, but now they will have the backup they truly deserve. Plus, we gotta get Jethro's story!

Each book is a standalone but I do highly recommend starting with book one. Angus is the beginning of everything for this series and the reason why we got this ragtag team in the first place. You learn so much about each individual character in their own book. You won't understand what it truly means for each of them to stand by Angus they way they did unless you start at the beginning. You also won't truly appreciate Roscoe the dog. He is one of my favorite side characters in a series. period.

    I have been craving the story of Angus Force ever since I read my copy of Hidden. He was brooding, damaged, and full of demons. Once the FBI's top profiler, a serial killer turned his entire world upside down. A bottle of booze, his faithful hound, and an isolated spot in Kentucky were all he needed to be content. Then he's pulled right back into the world he successfully escaped and that's how the deep dark secret of the HDD, the best team to take out the world's worst nightmares, was created. F I have been craving the story of Angus Force ever since I read my copy of Hidden. He was brooding, damaged, and full of demons. Once the FBI's top profiler, a serial killer turned his entire world upside down. A bottle of booze, his faithful hound, and an isolated spot in Kentucky were all he needed to be content. Then he's pulled right back into the world he successfully escaped and that's how the deep dark secret of the HDD, the best team to take out the world's worst nightmares, was created. For three books, Angus has been absolutely certain that Lassiter, the serial killer who ruined his life, the abomination he had killed, was very much alive. Too bad no one believes him. When the first body turns up with a twisted form of the killer's signature, everyone believes it's the work of a copycat. Even Nari, the one woman he would love to claim as his own, doubts him. And all of those doubts start to seep in, making him question himself. Could he be wrong? If so, who is out there targeting him and the members of his team? This book was thrilling and had my adrenaline pumping from beginning to end. It had me on edge and I was constantly trying to figure out if Angus was on the money. I've never liked Nari in the other books and while I still didn't like her in this one, I did like the ways in which she played off of Angus. Their scenes were truly intimate and their chemistry was hot. Then again, Angus could do no wrong for me so that could be why I was cool with her in the end. There are bombs, shootouts, interrogations, dead bodies, tons of drama, bits of romance, and even moments of humor sprinkled throughout this book. If you enjoy suspenseful stories that keep you guessing, you're gonna love this. Now I cannot wait until Jethro's story!! For this review and more:

The sexy-times between Angus and Nari were the authors usual mix of Alpha and sweet and overall I really enjoyed the book, it did go a little 'Scooby Doo' towards to end but other than that a really decent addition to the series.

    Driven is book 4 in the Deeps Ops series and finally it's time for Angus and Nari. To be honest I was a little nervous about this book. While I did love Angus I had a hard time imagining him as a leading man but oh boy was I proven wrong. Angus was delicious, he's definitely damaged from the death of his sister at the hands of a serial killer but he was so much more. Nari was also a pleasant surprise, during the series she seemed uptight but it's far from what she actually was with Angus.

    Driven delivered from its story arc to its sizzling romance. Angus Force is the leader of the Deep Ops team. Once a top profiler within the FBI, his obsession with a serial killer known as the “surgeon” has him working in a dilapidated basement with a group of agents who each have a case that pushed them to the edge. I love this team, their pets and their partners. From the sprinkle laden coffees to the drunk dog. From the beginning there has been a tension between Angus and Nari Zhang.

I love this team, their pets and their partners. From the sprinkle laden coffees to the drunk dog. From the beginning there has been a tension between Angus and Nari Zhang. A dance of sorts and their story was all friction and heat. A push and pull that swept me along. It was neat getting inside Angus’s head and being privy to his thoughts on Nari. Nari is the team’s shrink and we get her full story as the heat builds between them. Nari gets Angus and doesn’t try to fix him. Can Angus trust enough to let her in? We learn about how the team was formed, even as it appears the surgeon is alive and targeting them. The suspense thread was action-packed with twists and terror as Angus finds his team and Nari threatened. I am hoping we see a lot more from this team. While each book has its own romance and case, the overall series arc, friendships and buildup have me recommending you read the books in the order of their release.

    This whole series has been amazing and while each book has been fulfilling in itself, they’ve also built up my desire for Angus’ story. And with Driven, I finally have it.

I liked that he was able to allow Nari to do her thing, even if he would have preferred to keep her hidden away. Nari actually took me by surprise. She was nothing as I expected making her the perfect match for Angus. This is filled with so much action, drama, suspense and danger. All of it was sprinkled with a bit of humor and a healthy dose of sizzling chemistry. I was a bit disappointed that Roscoe’s character was not given the chance to shine as much as he has in some of the previous books. He’s still my favorite from the whole series. While this is part of a series and would be better read in order, it doesn’t have to be. I highly recommend this book and any of the previous books!

Not when every other agency believes the killer is dead, not when he’s no longer part of the Homeland Defense Department, especially not when bodies resembling the female members of his HDD team start appearing at an alarming rate with the killer’s M.O. ➵ Heroine: Nari Zhang is the Deep Ops’s psychologist who has been attracted and at odds with Angus right from the start. She’s a total badass and since I had an image of her right from the start I could imagine all the action sequences with her clearly. ➵ My opinion: I had been wanting to read Angus’s book from the moment I met the surly and tortured man who loved his crazy dog. This book is thrilling roller coaster ride complete with shootouts, humor, explosions, romance, law enforcement agencies butting heads, drama and a really cray-cray villain that kept me my heart pumping at full Force(See what I did there?) and guessing until the very end. I could totally see this book and series made into a TV show or movie. If I liked Wolfe before, I absolutely ADORED him in this one. He stole the show more than once added welcome comedy relief. I can’t wait for Jethro’s book! ➵ Facts: Driven is book #4 of the Deep Ops series by Rebecca Zanetti. It is a thrilling suspenseful romance that will keep readers on the edge of their seats. It is a standalone book, told from both points of view, with a happy ending. No cliffhanger. Possible triggers: graphic descriptions of the serial killer’s homicide scenes. * I was given an ARC of this book courtesy of the author via NetGalley. The excerpts are from that copy.

After seeing hints of their sexual tension through the first couple of books in the series, you could just tell that their story, and the conclusion to figuring out if Lassiter is still alive, was going to be packed full of action.

I also feel like it didn't make a lot of sense, but that might just be me not being completely into the story and Angus' background with Lassiter. All in all, this was a nice read. Roscoe was my favorite character of them all. I'd continue reading this series just for him!

Not the same MO as with the previous victims but now women who look similar to the women/girlfriends on and associated with the team. It is a race against time especially when Angus is more and more in the crossfire of the sitauation. These two have demons to slay and well they have to figure out what is going on between them the sexual chemistry even after a year hasn't dissipated. RZ did a truly outstanding job to make this a nail biting read that is action packed and with a very interesting twist. Here's hoping that the Brit gets his book.

    This is Angus Force's story and it was perfect. This book could be read as a "stand alone" but I wouldn't recommend it because each of the team members have been fully developed in their own book previously in this series. Their support of Angus in this book is understandable based on their own stories. With each chapter Ms. Zanetti was able to ratchet up the tension as Angus Force's "dead" nemesis reappears and is targeting women who look similar to his female team members while setting up Angus This is Angus Force's story and it was perfect.

    Oh man, I wasn’t sure…. I questioned how this book was going to go…. But this was also the one book I was so excited about…. I mean how are you not. Washed up alcoholic FBI profiler with an alcoholic side kick dog. A man who is completely obsessed with a serial killer he shot and killed years ago, but swears he is still alive. All the evidence says he is a dead, everyone involved says he is dead.. Is he though? Angus thought he was dead. I mean he pulled the damn trigger. But he also got shot at Oh man, I wasn’t sure…. I questioned how this book was going to go…. But this was also the one book I was so excited about…. I mean how are you not. Washed up alcoholic FBI profiler with an alcoholic side kick dog. A man who is completely obsessed with a serial killer he shot and killed years ago, but swears he is still alive. All the evidence says he is a dead, everyone involved says he is dead.. Is he though? Angus thought he was dead. I mean he pulled the damn trigger. But he also got shot at the same time. A year before he put this team together he got a tip that the crazy AF serial killer he profiled, became obsessed with, that ended up killing his sister before he finally killed him himself, might actually be alive. Nari was assigned to Angus’ team as the resident psychologist to make sure all these crazy fuckers don’t get any crazier (good luck girl, I hope you got a raise). Nari has her own shit happening between family, work and an ex. But this girl is a badass!! These two have sexual tension from the freaking start!! But they also very much don’t get along, because Angus hates shrinks and while he wants to bang the shit out of Nari, he won’t get close enough to her because he doesn’t want her to “fix” his crazy. Angus’ obsession with Lassiter (our serial killer) is what brought this entire team together, but he only had 1 year to prove that Lassiter was alive and that year ended a week ago….. Now a week after the deadline bodies are being found, that all look mysterious like the women on Angus’ team. The first being the cute little shrink that he is trying so hard to avoid. What do you do when your obsession starts to target the one woman you have been fighting against getting close to. You do what you swore you wouldn’t ever do and get friendly with your little shrink. These two are really a great couple. Their chemistry is awesome, banter even better. The way they handle each other's neuroses. Guys, I will tell you, this is not an insta-love book, insta-attraction yes, but it was building for the 3 books prior! Its a little on the slow-burn and this couple takes a hot minute to talk their shit out and get on the same page, but you will enjoy watching them figure it out. This book is so much more than just a romance. It has everything you want in a mystery romance. You won’t know what happens until it happens. Of course we can’t forget about our amazing Roscoe. Sadly he did not get hammered or wear any heels in this book. But he is one fierce protector. ARC kindly provided by NetGallery and Kensington Books in exchange for an honest review.

    3.5 stars The Deep Ops series is one where a ragtag crew (with their own quirks that sometimes straddle the unbelievable) battle the little things that go wrong, but 'Driven' feels a bit more like a police procedural gone rogue.

The premise is certain 3.5 stars The Deep Ops series is one where a ragtag crew (with their own quirks that sometimes straddle the unbelievable) battle the little things that go wrong, but 'Driven' feels a bit more like a police procedural gone rogue. Angus Force and Nari Zhang have had some sort of tension in Rebecca Zanetti's previous books in the series and 'Driven' is their story, where the catalyst that brings them together is the return of a serial killer that has long haunted Angus dreams. The premise is certainly quite an unusual one that kept me reading: the mutual preoccupation of Angus Force and the serial killer Lassiter that dates all the way back to Angus's FBI profiling days and the fateful day that his sister got caught in Lassiter's net. Except that Lassiter's supposed to be dead...until dead bodies of women who resemble the team members in Angus's crew start turning up and showing the same hallmarks of Lassiter's kills. Barring the action scenes aplenty, there isn't nonetheless, much context given to this abnormal relationship between Angus and Lassiter; much less clear is the odd (and not-too-convincing) revelation at the end about who really was pulling Lassiter's strings all along. As a result, those who dive straight into 'Driven' might have some difficulty assimilating why Angus is the way he is, who the secondary characters are and how Nari and her job seem to be so integral to the plot. The murder mystery did sometimes overshadow the growing relationship between Angus/Nari, which seemed to progress in uneven patches that moved quickly from work colleagues to lovers to lovers-being-in-trouble to HEA. They're not a surprise pairing because Zanetti has been hinting at them from the start, but I wish she could have done them more justice with their emotional development instead of constantly thrusting them into one dangerous whomping scene into the next. Overall though, this is definitely the book I enjoyed the most in the series. Despite my reservations, it was a fun ride and a few days' worth of entertainment. *ARC by the publisher via Netgalley

There are a lot of things I like about this book and some things I don't. Overall, the good outweighs the bad and this is a really good suspense that keeps you clueless and guessing to the very end. Nari has some TSTL moments, but she is a smart character and Angus is just obsessed and that clouded his perspective at times. Nari and Angus have had a simmering something going on since the start of the series. Nari has been assigned to the rag tag group by the powers that be in order to keep tabs on them, or so Angus believes, and to keep Angus in line. In spite of not being able to trust her, Angus is drawn to her. Nari knows that Angus is driven and obsessed, yet that pure animal magnetism and hot, rough sex are irresistible. His deal with HDD (Homeland Defense Department), a secret branch of the Department of Homeland Security, was for a year. His team would work the crap cases and Angus would be free to pursue a serial killer, Lassiter, that everyone else thinks is dead. That year is over and the Deep Ops Team is being shut down, members reassigned or outright fired. Then the bodies start dropping. Young women who look like Angus's team members and the MO is virtually the same as the dead Lassiter. Or, could he be alive as Angus has always believed? What is clear is that this killer has a vendetta against Angus and the next body just might be Nari if he isn't stopped.

    3.5 Stars. Angus's was an alcoholic throughout this entire series and suddenly for his book he isn't? He is just a social drinker now, no withdrawals...nothing, just cold turkey and all is good. That lost a half a star. 3.5 Stars. Angus's was an alcoholic throughout this entire series and suddenly for his book he isn't?

The fourth book in the Deep Ops series, this is the long-awaited story of Angus and Nari, and it’s an absolute rollercoaster! Exciting, action-packed, dramatic and suspenseful with the elements of humour the I love so much about Rebecca’s writing, and a love story that is passionate and intense, and so fitting for these characters. It’s a thrill ride, representing everything that I love about this series, and I loved this one! This book is the culmination of build-up over the last few books as Deep Ops Unit Director, Angus Force confronts his demons when a nemesis from his past resurfaces. Years ago, he shot and killed the serial killer that he hunted for a year and who murdered his sister, but for a while now he’s had the feeling that the deranged psycho may not actually be dead. When murdered women start surfacing in the killer’s signature style - each of them a lookalike for the women in Force’s life - he goes on the hunt again. Nari Zhang is the Psychologist who was demoted and being punished when she was allocated to the Deep Ops Unit, but she has found her place there and is a much-loved member of the team. Angus is the one person who hasn’t taken up the offer of regular therapy sessions, and there is a delicious dynamic between them that is part aggression, part sexual tension, and all foreplay. Over the last few books their chemistry has been building, and we’ve all been waiting for them to finally take that step, and with danger swirling around them and the two of them forced close together for Zari’s protection, all of that tension is about to explode. “You have to stop pushing everyone away.” He leaned in even closer, ducking his head to trap her gaze. “Baby, the last thing I want to do is push you away.” It’s hot, sexy, and so freaking exciting, and though Angus is determined to keep feelings out of it, now that they’ve begun to explore their connection, the intensity of everything between them is absolutely unstoppable. With the added danger bringing a fantastic edge, the emotion is impossible to hold back, and I loved watching them fall into it. She looked at him the way nobody in his entire life had looked at him. As if he could do anything. As if he was her hero. His body heated, and he wanted more than anything to hold that look forever. To actually be a hero, which he’d never come close to. The love story unfolds amidst near-constant action and thrills as bodies keep appearing and Angus and Nari find themselves in the firing line over and over again. There’s never a moment to rest, and my heart was pounding as the suspense builds closer and closer to the inevitable confrontation. My mind was racing trying to figure it all out, and I loved that I was kept guessing right up until the very end. Meanwhile, the powers that be have torn the Deep Ops Unit apart… but the familial bonds formed between the team are not so easily broken, so never fear, we still get to see the characters from previous books, and though they are in on all of the excitement, they bring some great levity to the story, and I laughed out loud at their banter and antics. It’s all happening, and it’s so freaking exciting, and I struggled to put this book down. I loved the suspense and the action, but as always, it’s the romance that I was there for, and I loved watching Angus and Nari finally come together. “I love you, Nari Zhang. When I first met you, right now, and forever. No matter what, you’re everything to me.” What a fantastic ride! I’m loving this series and am so excited for whatever is coming next! 5 stars!

    I receive an Advanced Reader Copy of this book. I am very excited. I love Rebecca Zanetti’s books. She writes the best alpha heroes and pairs them with stubborn, smart and independent women. Driven is finally Angus and Nari’s story. Angus is the leader of the rag-tag group of ex-military and police, while Nari is their psychologist. The sexual tension between these two has been heavy in the previous three books. I could not wait for their story and Zanetti delivered a suspenseful, sexy read.

Drive is the fourth book in the Deep Ops series. While you can read this story on its own, I believe it will be more enjoyable when read as part of the series because you would miss out on Angus and Nari’s banter in the previous three books. Zanetti surprised me a few times in this one. I enjoyed catching up with previous characters. The romance between Nari and Angus was HOT! The mystery kept me on my toes. While Angus is the last of the original four team members, I hope Zanetti will continue writing books in this series about the new characters that were recently introduced. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good romantic suspense. Zanetti is an auto-buy author for me. I pre-order each and every one of her books. I cannot wait to listen to my Audible version that was released today.

    When I started this series this was the book that I was impatiently waiting for, which is probably the case for everyone who had been enjoying this wonderful suspense series. We finally get to watch first hand, Angus and Nari's relationship develop, despite them both fighting it. While these two stubborn people are tryin to figure out their feelings, all around them some crazy chaos is happening. This book is basically non-stop from page one.

While these two stubborn people are tryin to figure out their feelings, all around them some crazy chaos is happening. This book is basically non-stop from page one. Right away we are thrown into the hunt for a killer and at the same time the team is dealing with being disbanded while still trying to figure out what the heck is going on. I'll admit, I didn't see the twist coming which is a rare treat for me since I usually figure out the mystery pretty quick. And even though the team is technically disbanded they are still on the case and we get to spend lots of time with some of our favourite characters from previous books (Wolfe <3) I'm excited to see what bad guy the team will take on next and I highly recommend this series to anyone looking for an action packed suspense, with some very steamy romance thrown in.

    I have been looking forward to Angus and and Nari's book and it did not disappoint. Just when Angus has time to really look into Lassiter, the seriel killer he supposedly killed, the deal he made with the HDD is up and they come to close his office down and reassign some. Even Nari cannot believe it. But make no mistake that is not the end for this team. But with each new death the evidence is adding up and isn't against Lassiter. Will they be able to stop him before one of their own is put away? I I have been looking forward to Angus and and Nari's book and it did not disappoint.

There are so many explosive moments, both coming from their steamy scenes or trying to save their life on the rollercoaster hunt for the man they thought dead a long time ago. The side characters are adding so much more to this story at the right time and overall it's one of my favourite books of the year and I love when I found new authors to read and look forward to their books.

Angus tries to keep Nari at arms length, but the sexual tension between these two can't be denied. Intense situations as the team tries to stop several murders. Unexpected plot twist toward the end. I'm look forward to the next Deep Ops book, and hope it features Jethro Hanson.

    I was a tad sad when this one as over because I wanted more. This became my favorite book in the series, but not by much more than Broken. It is my favorite because I feel as if this whole series so far has been Angus’ story - it has been *driven* by him so to speak. I enjoyed getting a little back story and watching him get close to being vindicated. Nari was pretty kick ass and could take care of herself.

    Mysterious Nari and Angus We finally get Nari and Angus. When the series started, I didn’t see these two together. Now, I can’t imagine it any other way. They are not sweet and dreamy with each other, but hard and all in. A serial killer is back in the game and brings Nari and Angus along. Lots of action and some surprises along the way.
