From the author of The Farther I Fall comes an action-filled romance in which two lovers discover that the best thing about being lost is having someone find you...
CIA operative Lee Wheeler is glad to be back in the field, even if the assignment is at a backwater station in Colombia—what he considers punishment for crossing lines in an attempt to save his brother's life. Either way, he's ready for action. But he never could have predicted the action he's about to get...
Doctor Zoe Rodriguez is in charge of a clinic in a tiny town on the edge of the rain forest. She's still dealing with a traumatic experience she had in Mexico—a trauma she wouldn't have survived if it weren't for Lee. So when they unexpectedly cross paths again, unresolved wounds rise to the surface, and their mutual passion flares to life.
But when a new threat reveals itself, Lee and Zoe's reunion takes on echoes of the past that may ruin their chance for a future.
Fast paced action from the page one, that took a hold of me, and kept the interest through the story. The prologue is filled with intense feelings of fear and desperation. It sets a tone for the story, with heart racing jittery.
When there was not anxiety and dread from the militia, there was a medical emergency of some kind. The scare and uneasiness keep the constant hold.
The connection between Lee and Zoe from the start is difficult, even though the attraction is there on both sides, their careers take them on the opposite sides of the world, not to mention the emotional reminder of when they first met.
The relationship takes time to develop, it is realistic, and delicate. The love scenes are passionate, and detailed.
Zoe seems to be a magnet for trouble and danger, Lee is there every time to rescue her, until the tables turn.
There's action, suspense, torture, and several dangerous escapes, the exhausting life in the clinic with the medical personnel, and sweet affairs of the heart, making it strong entertainment
