"Firewall" by DiAnn Mills

About this book:

  “In a matter of minutes, Taryn Young’s happily ever after turns into her waking nightmare.  
   After a whirlwind romance, software developer Taryn Young is en rote to a dream honeymoon when a bomb decimates the terminal, killing dozens. Injured, she awakens in the hospital to discover her husband is missing, and they're both considered prime suspects in the attack. Further, the FBI is convinced her husband isn't who he appears to be.
   Agent Grayson Hall's first priority is to catch those responsible for the bombing. Despite the evidence pointing Taryn’s guilt, Grayson’s gut tells him she’s innocent…and in danger. With a possible mole in the FBI office, Grayson and Taryn fight to stay ahead of her pursuers, especially when they learn what the bombers are really after: Taryn’s latest high-security software project. In the wrong hands, it could leave the US vulnerable to massive attacks.
   With national security on the line, Taryn and Grayson must unravel the plot and find the architect before their firewall is breached.”

 Series: Book 1 in the new series “FBI: Houston”. {The next book “Double Cross” is coming out in April of 2015.}

Spiritual Content- Taryn says she was a “Once-a-Month believer”, only going to Claire’s Messianic church once a month; Grayson is Protestant; Prayers.

Negative Content- Minor and Medium Cussing including: an unfinished ‘b----‘ (written just like that), a ‘cr*p’, a b*ll’,  a ‘crude’, a p*ss*nts, a ‘h*ll-r*isin’’, and two ‘suck it up’s; The sayings “All h*ll broke loose”, “crawing up your r*ar”, and “p*ts of h*ll” are all said at least once; People curse & almost curse but it’s not written; Drinking; a little girl gets kidnapped (not in her P.O.V. but is semi-detailed)   

Sexual Content- two ‘s*xy’s; A few not-detailed kisses; Taryn blushes remembering her and Shep’s wedding night (no-details); Different people says “such slept with such” (like Taryn says Kinsley slept with Haden); Taryn says when she was three, quote, “My mother found me standing in her bathroom sink rummaging through her medicine cabinet. I’d eaten all if her birth control pills.” “What did you do?” “Had my stomach pumped. I’ve been hormonal ever since”; Taryn had to flirt with Murford to get him to talk; Iris knows she’s pretty & uses it to her advantage.

My personal Rating- 

**The cover?! Taryn is described with having auburn hair with green eyes—not black hair with blue eyes! Maybe that’s supposed to be Iris? That’s the only thing I can figure. Also, Grayson is a blonde…? Maybe that’s Shep? I don’t know…
While I thought this book was okay, and I liked where it was set {but not really, ‘cause when I think about it and all that happens, it’s way too close to some of my family} this would not be a book for teens, it’s pretty rough. 

See y'all tomorrow with another review!
