Free Fall by Catherine Mann
On This Mission, There Are No Accidents...
Pararescueman Jose "Cuervo" James is the guy they call for the most dangerous assignments. He lives for his job.
On a high-risk rescue deep in the African jungle, Jose encounters sexy, smart Interpol agent Stella Carson. They'd once had an affair that burned hot and fast, but family is everything to Stella, and Jose just can't go there.
Fate has thrown them into the deadly hot zone together, and sparks will fly...but only if they can live to tell about it
This series has been my go-to for the past little while, when I want fast action with hot, yet sweet romance. I adored Jose and Stella's story. I think it might be my favorite of them all.
It was different, since the four month long relationship between Jose and Stella is over by the time the story picks up. A month before they came to a solution, they wanted two different kinds of future for them, and walked away from each other, heartbroken and devastated. Now Stella is in trouble, life and death kind of trouble, and she sends a message to Jose, that she needs help. As the story unfolds, Jose and Stella's memories, flashbacks, tells the story of the romantic relationship they had for four months. It is sweet, and steamy, and heart breaking. I felt for both of them, wanted to shake both of them, and hoped for a solution, a compromise, some kind of adjustment for them to find a way to each other again.
The action was breathtaking, never ceasing, there wasn't a moment where the tension, fear, and pressure eased. The constant battle against a possible threat, while trying to figure out the relationship, asks major acts of strength from both Stella and Jose. The mole keeps them on their toes, and other surprises in the plot throwing them off.
The secondary story lines bring more layers into the story, Annie and Samir, and the orphans school. It's amazing how all these threads are woven together at the end.
Touching, beautiful story of second chances on many different levels, mixed with intense action, and steamy, fragile romance
