At a benefit dinner, community activist Maria Cervantes overhears two men plotting a terrorist attack that could rock Miami to its core. But before she can alert authorities, she’s almost killed in a massive explosion—and wakes up in a hospital with no memory of what happened. As the sole survivor of the attack, she is now a person of interest to the NSA—and especially to Agent Cade O’Reilly. Because Maria is the one woman Cade has never been able to forget.
Years ago, they were closer than either was willing to admit—until Cade disappeared when Maria needed him most. Now he’s sticking by her, whether she likes it or not. Because the memories locked inside her mind could hold vital clues to the next attack. Because terrorists want her dead—and because he never wants to let her go again.
The story took a hold of me from page one, and was so captivating, that I read the book in one sitting. Amazing, heart racing, on the edge of your seat type of constant action! I'm breathless just thinking about it. It is explosive, fast paced, riveting, terrifying - all that you could want a suspense story to be.
And the love story between Maria and Cade. Yes, it is HOT and steamy, but at the same time, so beautifully written, it just made me swoon and 'Ahhh' through the book. When Cade's fear for Maria's life was described, I could nearly feel the pain he was feeling at the moment.
The images in the story are so vivid, that it felt like I was there, in Miami, chasing the terrorist with Cade's team.
Absolutely a keeper for all romantic suspense fans! ~ Five spoons all the way!
