Suicide Mission FRONT COVERShe tried to continue living a normal life, going to school, spending time with friends, and even trying to be a part of the family that took her in. She had almost gotten the hang of it, and moved past the suicide attempt.

That was until she got caught.


Sara then had to form an uneasy alliance with a cartel member to escape, which reveals her family’s car crash wasn’t an accident after all.


Is her new life worth more to her than revenge?


Or will she die trying to figure out why her family was targeted?

MY REVIEW of Suicide Mission (Guarded Secrets Book #1):

After losing her family in a horrific car crash, Sara Night is struggling to find a reason to live. Her adoptive family is supportive, but a piece of her is missing…
Trying to take her own life, Sara is at her lowest of lows. But then something unexpected happens. She finds out that she’s been “training” for a secret agency and now they want to bring her in as an agent who specializes in thievery.
Now she faces a huge danger, perhaps a mission that most people would consider a suicide mission. But before that she must survive training, and she may prove to be her own biggest hindrance in learning the needed skills to carry out the mission.
Sara is determined to risk her life for a good cause now instead of lose her life to depression, which was a really uplifting change in the story.
I loved the book. It has so many twists and turns, and well drawn characters, it kept me entertained with every page. I loved Sara, her development as a character and person throughout the book. I love stories where you get to see someone fall and then rise, and Sara is the kind of character you can’t help relating with and rooting for every step of the way. I loved the other characters too, but Sara was my favorite so far.
I’m so excited to read the rest of the series!!!

My Rating: 5 Secret Stars.

||| SYNOPSIS |||

CIRA agent Jackson Reeves won’t be denied his revenge…


He’s hunted down and killed the men responsible for his family’s fatal “accident”—all except the mastermind, Ash Crest. The problem is someone beat him to it, and Jackson won’t rest until he finds out who, and why. His search is complicated, because he’s several years into an undercover operation to take down the Cardoza Cartel and can’t risk blowing his cover.


Jackson’s sister Danielle is in danger from the very organization he has to pretend to support…


Camden Cardoza intends to take over the Cartel from his father, but to do so he needs a COVER OPERATIONS FRONTwife, and he has his sights on Danielle. Jackson knows he has to bring down the Cardozas before they claim his sister.


CIRA sends in more agents, including the beautiful and mysterious Night Stripe, whose task is to befriend Danielle and infiltrate the Cartel. Jackson struggles to find a way to communicate without giving both of them away…and falls for her in the process.


Jackson and Night Stripe walk the thin line between their mutual attraction, conflicting missions, and the danger of discovery, as Jackson’s objectives threaten to overwhelm him, putting those he loves in danger.


Can Jackson defeat the Cartel, save his sister, find Ash Crest’s killer, and complete his revenge—without losing his heart, mind, or life in the process?

MY REVIEW of Covert Operations (Guarded Secrets Book #2):

Wow! I read the second installment of the Guarded Secrets series in two sittings, which is saying a lot because this isn’t a short book. This one is a real page-turner. Although at first I was disappointed that the book was focused on Jackson instead of Sara from the first book, I quickly changed my mind as I got lost in the story. After reading about Jackson and Danielle’s story – their parents died and the fact that they were still alive put them in danger with the cartel – in book one,  I was interested to learn more of the story.  No one thinks Jackson survived, but he’s actually very much alive and working for CIRA as an undercover agent. He’s on a mission to take down the cartel that destroyed his family, and with the help of my favorite agent, Night Stripe, he might just pull it off. I loved the way this book ended, and I’m excited to see what happens next. I haven’t read book three yet, but it’s a definite must-read on my list! Sara Schoen’s overall writing is impressive, with a realistic tone of voice but a lovely flow to her words. This series is action-packed, but its got a little bit of everything else in it too – romance, mystery, suspense, drama! The story is so well drawn and the world building Schoen constructs is incredible. I am in LOVE with this series, and I heard a rumor that there’s going to be a few more books, so I’m excited to commit and read them all!

My Rating: 5 Secret Stars.

Left for Dead FULL

||| SYNOPSIS |||

Katya Petrov is supposed to be dead…


When Ash Crest can’t finish the job, Katya is targeted by her own father, Volodya Petrov. He decides to take matters into his own hands by killing Katya himself.


He never expected Night Stripe to interfere. Left for Dead FRONT


When Night Stripe killed Ash and shredded the files from his office, she hoped his hit list would die with him and the survivors would be able to live without fear.


She was wrong.


Renegade had been undercover with the Russian mafia. It was a dark, dangerous, and deadly mission, especially for those unfortunate enough to be in his way. Disbanding the Cardoza mafia took time. But now, with Renegade’s cover blown and other CIRA agents under protection, it’s only a matter of time before Night Stripe is exposed.


Leaving one man alive was his only mistake.


The goal is to remove Volodya from power and save Katya, but Night Stripe didn’t plan on going back to save her teammate—and being captured in the process.


She’s alone, trapped, and fighting to survive. Can Night Stripe save herself, protect Katya, and finish the mission she started so many years ago? Or will she be left for dead?

Sara Schoen



Sara Schoen began writing in middle school, but did not officially dedicate herself to writing until high school when encouraged by her writing partner. Before then, Sara had not thought about trying to publish her works because it seemed unlikely that anyone would take a chance on someone so young. Despite her previous thoughts, she published her first book, Amber Alert, at the age of nineteen, and began rewriting and editing a spy series that she spent years writing when she was younger. With a lot of hard work and determination, now that same series, which is close to her heart, is a bestseller.


Sara is a Biology Major with a minor in Environmental Science and a minor in Spanish at James Madison University, and spends her time writing, studying, and ghost hunting. While writing is a great hobby that turned into a passion to share with others, school is her priority.


Throughout her publishing journey, Sara has had an amazing support system from her family, friends, and significant other, who were with her every step of the way. She hopes to continue to write, and wants to inspire others to reach for their dreams no matter how far they may seem. She truly believes that dreams can come true at any age, if you put in effort and chase after what you want.
