Navy SEAL Brett 'Cutter' Weaver is on a mission to Nicaragua when he learns his bride-to-be, Tess Kelley, has been injured in a car bombing. At Homeland Security’s demand, he’s rushed home on the next available transport and arrives to find Tess embroiled in three controversial stories. One may offer the key to her attacker.
On top of the emotional and physical upheaval of the bombing, Tess has been offered the journalistic opportunity of a lifetime at the Washington Post, and is torn between her love for Brett and the need to prove herself to her father, a famous war correspondent. If she accepts the job, she and Brett face living on opposite sides of the country. With their wedding two weeks away, she has temptations to face and tough decisions to make.
Serving as her security detail, Brett sees Tess’s remarkable investigative reporting skills in action, and acts as her sounding board and partner. He’s willing to sacrifice to ensure her happiness, but more, he wants to keep her safe. Because there’s a killer stalking her, and one interview at a time, they mean to catch him.
I've always loved to read series, because of the chance to visit with the previous characters, but to get a whole new book with previous characters ~ that could go either way. But Teresa Reasor doesn't disappoint here either.
Brett and Tess has been missing each other for the ten months during Brett's deployment. The wedding is coming but there's still the question if Brett will make it home before the big day.
Tess has been working on many controversial cases for her job as journalist, and then one turns potentially deathly. The story is filled with mystery from the cases Tess is working on for the news paper. Some of them so dangerous, people start to die, attacks towards Tess are continues, and Brett does his best to protect Tess from all the harm and malice suddenly surrounding her.
While investigating the cases, Brett and Tess gets to see each other in new light, examine their deepest feelings and commitment to each other. They learn valuable lessons about being open to each other with everything, honest about all things, and how to support each other in every way.
The story gave deeper look into the SEAL team and family, to their everyday life, and to the struggles the soldiers as well as the families have, while being apart.
