The prologue of this story has five women drinking, playing cards and joking with each other. All of the women had USMC (United States Marine Corps) training and were now doing independent missions with teams they work with. Remington Park (and yes, I almost said Remington Steele) is our heroine for this book. She works with the set of Grantham triplets, Drake, Joss and Knox, and has been lusting after them for years. This group of women go on 'girls only' vacations and it turns out that regardless of the fact they can all kill a dozen different ways with their little fingers they are all submissives. I find the irony of that to be very humorous. And on her return from vacation we meet the boys. Okay, their not really boys, but how many times can I really say triplets? In order of age by minutes, Drake is the oldest and seems to the tactical specialist. Joss, the middle child, is the computer and electronics specialist. Knox is the youngest and amongst other things is the sniper.

Remington, or Remy as she is called most of the time, has worked very hard to not only become a Marine, but be respected by the rest of her team. She is almost constantly working out hoping that will help flatten her chest and her rear. Now, they are contacted to run a mission of sorts to collect information. It's a well planned mission with Remy and Drake pretending to be a married couple while the other two are waiting in the shadows. It's a pretty clever scheme in all and that is where Drake crosses the line from teammate to Dom while trying to cover the noise of Joss restarting the computer he just hacked. Everything goes smoothly for their exit and retreat from the job, but Remy doesn't know really what to do. She seems to have crossed from tough girl to embarrassed and unsure girl.

Ms. Smith surprised me with a very good, suspenseful story. The one thing that bothered me about this story is the fact that all five of the women were supposed to be American marines and yet Jessie is British and works for MI6…but I guess that will be in the second book of this series. Ms. Smith put in two different occurrences which show us what exactly the different members of the team can do. I enjoyed when she showed us a little of the insecurity each triplet felt regarding Remy. I also enjoyed the truly 'girl' moment Remy has when she calls one of her girlfriends since she didn't know what to do about the boys. It was particularly amusing when it turns out each of the triplets is a Dom. I was completely glued to my Kindle waiting to see what happens to the team, to Remy and to their relationships. I can't wait to read the next book, Jessie's Jewels!
