Blog Tour 'Operation Owl' by Tara Quan

Welcome at my stop on the ‘Operation Owl’ by Tara Quan Blog Tour. ‘Operation Owl’ is a Contemporary Romance Novel and has been published on July 15. ‘Operation Owl’ is inspired by a Grimm’s fairy tale.

I hope you enjoy your stay here at ‘Maureen’s Books’.  

About the Book:

Five years ago, Maya Jain kissed her best friend only to have him run out of her dorm room and leave the state. When he shows up in Washington, D.C., a wanted fugitive sought after by every branch of the US government, she can’t bring herself to ignore his plight. As their physical relationship picks up where it left off, she decides it’s time to make him see her as more than the bespectacled, bookish girl he once called “Owl.”

After being accused of espionage and treason, Zack Strong needs a forensic accountant to help clear his name. Not knowing who he can trust, this white-hat hacker has no choice but to ask his former best friend and math tutor for help. Together they unravel a cyber conspiracy at the Barn, an NSA facility tasked to intercept electronic communications. But as they traverse the nation’s capital to avoid capture, Maya insists on letting their simmering sexual tension take its natural course. Even though he’s never been able to shake the memory of their one kiss, he refuses to let her give up her life for a man with no future.

My Review:


A view weeks ago I came across the sign up page for ‘Operation Owl’. This book sounded like something I would really enjoy so I immediately signed up. The description sounded very interesting and I couldn’t wait to start reading. So a couple of days ago I could finally start reading.

In ‘Operation Owl’ we meet twenty five year old Maya. Maya is a math genius and she has been in love with her best friend, Zach for years. Unfortunately Maya hasn’t seen Zach since she kissed him years ago. That is until now. Zach is in trouble and Maya is the only one who can help him. But it is hard for Zach to be around Maya. Ever since Maya kissed him, and he got scared of what he felt for her he tried to stay away. Now he hasn’t got a choice and soon he can’t stay away from Maya anymore.

What I really liked about ‘Operation Owl’ was the way you’re immediately right in the middle of all the action. There’s no slowly getting to know the characters. This book is very short and everything happens very fast. I know, as a fanatic reader, that sounds like a bad thing but to be honest I enjoyed the fast going story very much. This book is perfect when you’re short in time and you still really need something fun and interesting to read. I loved the chemistry between Maya and Zach but I also really enjoyed the illegal and running- for- the- FBI stuff.

The character I loved the most was Zach. I loved the way he tried to suppress his feelings for Maya because he was scared and not ready for a serious commitment. I really enjoyed reading about how he made everything harder for himself. It sort of sounded familiar. LOL!

I found ‘Operation Owl’ a very enjoyable book and I seriously loved the cover. This book is perfect for a lazy afternoon.
