The new SBG novel from the author of Exchange of Fire.
When her secretly filmed tryst shows up on the internet, Michelle Alger goes on the run. She has no choice. Not only was her one-night stand the son of a US senator, but he’s been murdered—and she’s the number one suspect. With both the senator and an avenging drug lord on her trail, her life is in danger. There’s only man she can trust. He saved her once, but will he still be her hero six years later?
Captain Jeremy Malone and the rest of Delta Squad have the senator’s order: find the mystery woman who killed my son. But to Jeremy, she’s no mystery. Six years ago his team of Green Berets rescued her from the torturous clutches of a Colombian cartel, and he’s never forgotten her. His personal and covert mission: find Michelle before anyone else. When he and Michelle do meet again, the sparks are explosive and consuming. They’re also dangerous as hell.
Because with each new bit of evidence, Jeremy suspects that Michelle’s innocence may be a ruse—a beautiful trap set by a woman who has even more secrets yet to bare.
Fantastic romantic suspense, fast paced action and really adorable couple, Jeremy and Michelle, trying to find a way to have a future and happiness with each other.
That road is not easy, but the connection they have is so hot, real, and passionate, it just left me breathless. They both have their issues, they have their history, and to work on those, while running for their lives, makes the story intense. Add to that the constant danger, and you have a story that is hard to put down.
The book is part of a series, and I wish I had read the previous book before, the plentiful of characters would have been more familiar, and there were several comments on the previous events, that would have made more sense. Just saying you could get more out of the story by reading them in order.
Also, all the characters have their say, on the other words, their point of view in the story. This certainly can make a reader feel like they are living the moments with the team, but it can also spread the story so wide open, it comes to exhausting to keep up with it all. I usually like to just focus on one couple at the time, not bits and pieces of many developing relationships in different stages, as the case was here.
But mostly I truly enjoyed the story, the action, the absolutely heartrendingly beautiful scenes between Jeremy and Michelle, and the team, that it is hilarious in its own weird, dysfunctional way.
