    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.

My Thoughts:

A fantastic book like this deserve 5 stars. What I loved about this book is that it had a great mix of everything. What I've notice many times with New Adult novels is that they tend to overdo with the sex scenes, then there's the drama is just way out there, and the whole instant connection I'd die for you kind of relationships. This book was nothing like that. What I'm trying to say is that there was a perfect mix with the story-line, steamy scenes, and drama. I thought that this book was well written and interesting. I liked that it was fast paced and it was so good I managed to finish the book within 3 hours. There was many things going on to keep the readers hooked. The characters were interesting and I thought that Elle was a character that many college girls can relate to, other then the whole terrorist and CIA things... Overall I loved this book and I highly recommend you lovely readers to check out this book!

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.



  1. Great review, Jessica! I don't think I ever read a book in 3 hours but I'm a slow poke lolz. Glad you liked it though this sounds like a really fun read!

  2. Thank you for such a great review, Jessie! You really got what I was trying to do with Covert Assignment, and that's so gratifying!
