Desperate Play is a fantastic book. Wyatt and Avery are wonderful together. This story never had a dull moment! I wasn’t able to guess who did it, so I had a really hard time putting the book down. I definitely recommend this book, and look forward to the next book in Barbara Freethy’s FBI series!
Another Romantic Suspense That Pulls You In
Another winner by Barbara Freethy. While this is Book 3 in the Off the Grid series dealing with a group of FBI agents who bonded and became the best of friends during their training, this is definitely a book you can read as a stand alone. I like that in each book you have moments when the other friends make an appearance. The story starts out fast, and the suspense continues to grow. Love that in this book we get to know Wyatt's background, and why he tends to be a loner and working undercover with the FBI. After Avery's best friend is murdered, Wyatt is assigned through the head of the aerospace company that Avery works for to keep an eye on her and to protect her. You'll be guessing until the very end who is committing the espionage, the thefts, and who is after Avery to keep these secrets. Loved it. Can't wait to read book 4 in this series!
Desperate Play by Barabara Freethy is the 3rd installment in her Off the Grid FBI series.
Note: this review contains spoilers!
As soon as we meet Wyatt Tanner, we know all is not as it seems. He was in the tail end of the last FBI book, so being homeless just doesn’t cut it. This is off the grid after all.
And Avery Caldwell doesn’t really fit the role of undercover spy either. But when her best friend is murdered in the Fun House, Avery becomes the target of everyone! Car chases and flying bullets keep the action fast moving and the reader on the edge of their seat. Figuring out the identity of bad guy mastermind keeps you guessing. Every time I thought I had it figured out, things changed and another clue pointed to someone else! Well defined characters and great descriptions make this a great read.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
Another winner from Barbara Freethy

I don’t think Barbara Freethy can write a bad book! This is the 3rd in her FBI Off the Grid series and may just be the best one yet. Each book is a standalone, telling the story of one of a group of FBI agents who bonded going thru training together. Desperate Play is Wyatt’s story. He’s the loner, undercover guy we’ve had glimpses of in the first books. He meets Avery, a quiet, sweet & sexy astrophysicist while working undercover at her company, after her best friend is murdered. Get ready for plot twists and turns as Wyatt & Avery try to figure out who killed Noelle, who’s selling government secrets, & who wants them dead before they find the answers. Friends, family - everyone is suspect. This book will keep you guessing until the end....and cheering for Wyatt & Avery to find their happily ever after. Read the book....then go get the first two as well, you won’t be sorry.

ARC for honest review with no compensation
Desperate Play is book 3 in the Off The Grid:FBI series by Barbara Freethy that is filled with suspense, twists, turns, emotional and keeps you on the edge of your seat and turning the pages to find out what happens next.
Wyatt an FBI agent (who we met in the other books) is a loner and undercover agent and has been since he joined the FBI. He has been undercover so long he is not sure who he really is...Until he meets and has to protect Avery (an Astrophysicist) after she discovers her friend is dead and needs to know what happened and why...can Wyatt keep Avery safe? Find out who killed her friend? Who is behind it?
Once you start reading you will not want to put it down though it is a standalone, reading the previous books in this series will give you a better understanding of the agents and how they interact..can't wait for the next book in this series!!!
Desperate Play is flat out wonderful and will have you gasping, twitching, frantically turning pages, and hoping our favorite author writes the next story quickly! Undercover FBI agent, astrophysicist whose best friend has been murdered, a boatload of potential suspects, complicated family dynamics and lots of danger and yes, some heat all add up to a very captivating read. If you are a reader unfamiliar with Barbara Freethy’s work it’s way past time you discover what good writing looks like. Nuff said. Buy and enjoy. I voluntarily reviewed an advance copy of this book. Most highly recommend.
Intriguing....third in series
Another wonderful read by Barbara. This is Book Three in the FBI Series of Off The Grid. This is a great series. Got me from page one. Page turner for sure. Loved it and highly recommend. Will keep you interested from page one to the end. I wanted to make this book last but, as usual, I was up late reading as I didn’t want to put it down. Highly recommend to anyone who loves mystery, excitement and fun.
Mystery and intrigue!
Just when I thought I knew who dunnit, twists and turns took my mind in a different direction. I love this series!! Wyatt and Avery definitely had baggage to deal with, but they brought out the best in each other. Must read!!
Book three in this series. Plenty of intrigue, questions and twists in this one. Outstanding story and romance to top it all off. There were a couple of places the story bottomed out, then spun back up into the mystery you expect. The whole series is a good read, don’t miss it.
Avery is a an astrophysicist meeting her friend Noelle, when she is murder. A request to go to her apartment, to get a remembrance from their childhood. Will she recognize it. We meet Wyatt working undercover, there is a mole. What draws these two together, and now the killer wants them. There is a leak at the aerospace, where they all work at, who is it, and what does he want. She has given us another emotion, tense plot, that will leave you trying to figure it out. Been a reader of hers for years and she never fails to deliver a great story. As the title says’ “Desperate Play”, with Avery and Wyatt as players
