High school teacher Kelly Finch is furious when Mr. Hallstrom, the principal, tells her that her class will be used to search out active gang members in the school. She is partnered with Lieutenant Jared “Mac” McNally whose arrogant and cynical attitude just rubs her the wrong way. If only he didn’t attract her so much she could concentrate on what needed to be done and actually get the assignment done.

Mac immediately rises to the challenge when Kelly protests against using her class for his operation. She sees him as a judgmental person who is out to trap her students before they’ve had a chance to escape their terrible home lives. Their tempers rise as they both refuse to back down, but so does their passion. When they disagree on a certain student, Kelly lets her pride influence a decision that could put her in grave danger.

Covert Lessons by Mari Carr was an interesting read. The storyline was fast-paced and easy to relate to. Mac and Kelly’s tempers soon give way to a push and pull passion they try to put off in order to keep up professional ethics. When they spend time together, learning the backgrounds on Kelly’s students, a deep friendship and bond is formed. The sexual chemistry between the two characters eventually explodes and it is scorching! I loved the flow of the story and the ending was thrilling. I could not put it down. Ms. Carr did a fantastic job.
