When lone wolf, Navy SEAL Harold “Flash” Carney agrees to act as an undercover operative for the FBI in an international smuggling sting, he revisits a past he hoped to leave behind forever. During the sting his handler is killed. Neck deep in a double cross and cut off from his team, Flash goes on the run with only his training to keep him alive.
Samantha Cross is desperate to leave her past as a battered wife behind, but her ex-husband is attempting to gain custody of their daughter, Joy, to keep them in his life. When her ex turns stalker, Sam is determined to do whatever it takes to protect her daughter and break his hold over them for good.
Despite their mutual wariness, Samantha and Flash are drawn to each other. But trust comes hard. When the walls both have erected start to crumble, trouble surfaces from all fronts, and Flash has no choice but to break away from the ingrained habits of a lifetime to save the one thing he’s always wanted and thought he’d never have—a family
What a beautifully crafted story, where different story lines are through the tale brought closer and closer together until they all bind together. Every new chapter sparked more interest to the story, "one more chapter" until wee hours of the morning when I finished the book.
The stories are heart-breaking, but victorious and alluring. I loved it, when reading in tears, there was suddenly such a funny line, I burst into laughing aloud.
The love stories are passionate, charming, and delicate.
The relationship between Joy and Mr Tim delightful and lovely, the trust and love Joy has for him boundless, while Mr Tim cares for her in such a tender and gentle way.
And once again the brotherhood, loyalty, honor, and integrity of the team is demonstrated.
The suspense is thrilling, edge of your seat, holding your breath type. The violence gory and bloodstained, real.
I've truly enjoyed the series, pretty much inhaled the whole series at once, and I hope there will be more in the future.
Five shiny spoons!
