REVIEW ➞ Code Name: Rook by Sawyer Bennett


Being a highly skilled operative for a company like Jameson Force Security is exhilarating and important work…until it comes time to date. I like to keep my profession under wraps for a number of reasons. Some of what we do is top secret, most of what we do is dangerous, and more than one woman has tried to latch onto me because she was more enamored with what I do than who Cage Murdock really is. And since I’m more of a ‘here for the night’ than a ‘here for forever’ kind of guy, what’s the harm in a little white lie about my job?

My harmless deceit has never failed me. Until now. Because I met the most amazing woman and did the unthinkable. I married her. And now my beautiful, unsuspecting, probably-going-to-leave-my-sorry-behind-when-she-finds-out-the-truth wife doesn’t know that I’m not a used car salesman like I told her when we met.

As it typically does with lies, the truth is about to come out in a big way when Jaime unwittingly gets herself mixed up with some unsavory characters and I, along with the team at Jameson, have to intervene. Now I need to save my girl and hope I can save my marriage too. Let’s just say I have some serious explaining to do.

Cage isn’t the type to fill a hole left behind. He’s the type that rolls into you and takes everything.


Cage has gotten himself into a little bit of situation and it was fun to see how he got himself out of it.

Cage is a former Navy Seal and a member of the Jameson Force Security team. He isn’t one to typically do relationships, however, one night when he meets a woman for a one night stand he quickly realizes that there is something more there.

Cage and Jamie’s relationship progresses quickly, but that is not surprising with their amazing and electric chemistry. Cage had some moments that made you want to knock some sense into him, especially when it came to admitting the truth to Jamie, however, he was also very protective of her.

I loved getting some overlap with Code Name: Ghost and seeing everything from a different point of view. This story can easily be read as a standalone, but I HIGHLY recommend reading this entire series, plus you’ll get to know all the other members of the Jameson Force crew.

Code Name: Rook is a suspenseful, insta love romance that is a great addition to the series.
