{{Xpresso Book Tours}} Blog Tour + Giveaway: [Review] COVERT ASSIGNMENT by MISSY MARCIASSA

Covert Assignment by Missy Marciassa
Publication date: December 2nd 2013
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult

    Covert Assignment 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…
    Covert Assignment is about the unexpected turns life can take when making “adult” decisions.

Cover Assignment is a fast, fun, thrilling story that will have asking "what will happen next?" not because is ends in a cliffhanger (it really doesn't..well kind of) but because its a good story and you will want to read at least the rest of the series :P It was a good debut novel for Missy.

In Cover Assignment we follow the story of a girl named Elle as she finds her way through life trying to figure out if her plans for life are the perfect match. As the story goes on she gets recruited by the CIA to help out with some data. That's when her plans she thought she wanted for her life start to dwindle and she realizes that what she thought she wants she doesn't want it anymore...I really enjoyed this story line it was fun and interesting to see Elle make her decision. Even though Elle is only 22, she kind of acted like the world would end if she didn't stick with her old plans..good thing she had Preston to help her out. He would push her to try new things and she did for him. Since he is a thruster not a thumper ...Lol now that had me laughing in the story when they compared what sex would be like with Preston vs elle's ex. 

Working for the CIA isn't always fun..Danger can follow even when you least expect it. It had Elle questioning if joining the CIA is something she really wants to do. In the end I would say it was a huge cliffhanger but it was a small one because you don't know what Elle's response is to what he told her..with that I will be picking up the next book to find out more.

All in all I give 4 stars!! I really enjoyed Covert Assignment. I can't wait to read more of Elle and Preston's story. 

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). Covert Assignment is the end result of that urge.
