Bagram Special Ops #3 Security Forces Lieutenant Maya Lopez is right at home in a war zone: she's been fighting all her life. A hard-won commission in the air force has brought her to Afghanistan, and if she plays her cards right, she could end up with an FBI job. It won't be easy, but that just makes her more determined.
Jackson Thatcher is a protector in all senses of the word. A pararescue jumper with Southern-boy charm, he easily captures Maya's interest, but her trust is another story. He's sexy, strong and caring, but she makes it clear she's no damsel in distress. She's never relied on any man, and she's not about to start now.
When Maya and Jackson become pawns in a radical warlord's deadly game, they find themselves on the run and must depend on each other if they want to make it out alive.
I've loved this series, and this book is possibly one of my all time favorites.
The incredible journey the author takes us, might break your heart a bit, it certainly did it for me. The courage, spirit, fortitude, and endurance of the soldiers, while facing the enemy, is stunning. The action/suspense kept my heart-rate up, the twists and turns of the story gasping.
The love story of the true southern gentleman and kickass-biker-soldier-girl is moving, witty, adorable, yet passionate. The story had moderate heat level.
Five shiny stars for this unforgettable tale, that I love to reread again and again.
Even though the book is part of the series, it can be read as a stand-alone, there is no cliffhanger ending.
MY GRADING SCALE:
5 Spoons - Amazing, memorable story that I loved and want to read again. The best of the best and not given lightly
4 Spoons - Fantastic, entertaining story that I enjoyed and connected with and will gladly recommend to readers
3 Spoons - A good story, not much that stood out but I was engaged enough to spend the time to read it through
2 Spoons - A story with some issues, that were a problem to me
1 Spoon - Not for me
