Handpicked for an underground White House society, Jason Merritt and Zoe Summers are assigned to take down a sadistic leader through the use of blackmail, coercion and sex. Former CIA agent Jason must train his ex-lover for her role as a submissive in a dangerous BDSM sex tape project. Distracted by their tortured past, he’s unprepared for their reignited passion or his overwhelming need to protect her, possess her and do whatever it takes to make her his.

Tough and tenacious Zoe Summers has tried to forget her former field partner and lover. She hasn’t forgiven Jason, or herself, for their failed missions. The BDSM training sessions with Jason stir up deep yearnings and sparks fly. She’s obsessed into exploring this realm of her sexuality, but worried it will undermine both their relationship and their project. Danger escalates when their target discovers the plan and devises one of his own. Now the two must fight and choose between life, love and National Security.

Sensual, dangerous, adrenaline-pumping…

Goodreads for Red Tape


I reviewed this in the spice box set but, I want to go into more detail for a single review!
I don't think that anyone can not pick up this book after reading the synopsis! BDSM in the White House? Hell yes!!! This was such a fun read! Full of suspense and drama, sexy men and dangerous scenarios. Jason blew me away, wow, what a character! I loved him from the start! Zoe reacted way better than I would have had I been put in her situation. What an interesting scenario for the White House and government conspiracy. I loved it. At times I was so on edge, wondering where this would go next! I was so in love with the ending from the Assassin's POV! Wonderful! I also adored the epilogue! So sweet! I can not wait for the next story! I am secretly hoping that it will be Tyler and Melissa ending up together but, no matter what I want both character's stories!!!

10 Things I Love About My Characters in Red Tape
By Kathy Kulig

Zoe Summers and Jason Merritt were ex-CIA agents and ex-lovers, and now they’ve been hand-picked for a secret organization that uses sex, scandal and coercion to manipulate some of the most dangerous leaders in the world. In Red Tape, they’re assigned a dangerous project that reignites their love affair. When the mission, and their love affair, spins out of control, their target discovers the plan and creates a deadly one of his own.
Zoe’s failed mission as a CIA agent continues to haunt her. She’s reminded of this botched job where she almost lost her life by a ragged scar on her neck. She manages to hide it with a scarf, but she can’t forget the mission or Jason. When they’re reassigned together several months later, their job and relationship become even more complicated and dangerous.
Without giving anything away:
I love:
1.   Zoe’s vulnerability and fears, how she hides them with her kick-butt attitude.
2.   Jason’s sense of loyalty and love to his country and Zoe. But he’s aware of the old wounds and not sure how to deal with them.
3.   Sometimes Jason understands Zoe better than she understands herself.
4.   Zoe knows how to stand up for herself, but she can’t quite figure out how to connect with Jason.
5.   Jason did leave her, but he had a really good reason.
6.   Zoe and her brother have a great relationship. He’s in Special Forces overseas and they have a special code they use via text/email. When he can contact her.
7.   Jason believes by working closely with Zoe on this project, he’ll keep her safe. He’s wrong.
8.   Despite her fear of failure, Zoe’s good, really good, at role playing with terrorists, and can improvise as needed.
9.   I love her curiosity. But it can be a strength and a flaw.
10.        Jason is the type of hero who’d risk everything, absolutely everything, for the woman he loves. Isn’t that a true hero?
