She walked away from him once.
Now he’s her only hope.
Blackhawk Security weapons expert Anthony Harris has trained for any contingency. Except the return of his ex-fiancée. Glennon Chase walked out on the former ranger five years ago.
And now the CID special agent needs Anthony’s help with a deadly investigation into her partner’s disappearance.
Dodging bullets he can handle, but pairing up with his ex is flat-out dangerous. Especially when Anthony discovers that the secret Glennon is keeping could get them both killed.
An edgy, explosive story, filled with action, suspense, secrets, and betrayals. The pulse of the story keeps pounding hard and fast as the volatile situations keep escalating, even speeding up as the two former lovers have to face their past, their mistakes, and the choices they made while vulnerable and trying to survive the combat they had faced, with each other and in the war they fought.
Edgy is a perfect word to describe the tale -- the battle to survive, the hunt for the criminals, the attempted rescue of Glennon's partner -- there are no guarantees, everyone is precarious and endangered, there are times I truly feared for the hero and heroine, and their survival.
Anthony Harris is a hero easy to like. He oozes charm, good character, honor, and dignity. He has a big heart, a sense of humor, and he is willing to die for those he loves. He is loyal, passionate, protective, and loving. The wars he battled in has made a lasting impact into his soul, yet there's still room for tender feelings and loving thoughts.
Glennon Chase is a survivor. She is a heroine who can stand on her own and has done just that. She loves fiercely, yet rather hide than face the storms if it comes to protecting what she holds dear. She has secrets, she has made decisions and choices I had a hard time accepting, but she stands by her actions and her past, giving reasonable explanations to her way of resolving issues in the past.
The chemistry between Glennon and Anthony is palpable, their history makes it even more belivable, and the churning emotions between them had my heart melting. There is so much love still left in their hearts, minds, and souls, and after everything they have gone through, I have to salute them with their desire to make the best of the situation and finding redemption within each other's arms.
Combustible, intense suspense, flammable romance with lessons in forgiveness and loyalty, a story that takes your breath away and delivers on every aspect.
