Ex-Navy SEAL Daz Montoya and rescue dog handler Renee Black have made a career out of saving people. But when their whirlwind affair resulted in pregnancy, Daz’s verbal fumble tore their budding relationship apart.
It’s been a tough eight years for Renee, raising Charlie alone with his autism-fueled impulsiveness, but she’s managed—until now. When she has to chase him to the edge of a cliff in a snowstorm, seeing the face of their rescuer is just the rotten cherry on top of an already rough day.
In the close confines of a snowbound cabin, Renee and Daz rediscover the heat still simmering between them. But while Renee welcomes Daz’s renewed determination to help Charlie however he can, she’s reluctant to trust him with her heart.
With the Phoenix Institute’s help, Renee and Daz discover their son’s gift for animal telepathy is real. And that to save him from old enemies that would kill to control him, they must join forces—and risk losing everything they’ve ever loved.
I love it when a story surprises me, that this one certainly did that.
Renee and Daz have chemistry, the attraction sizzles between them. They are both very likable characters, and their love for their son, Charlie, is palpable, and constantly present, admirable. The story is told by going back and forth in the past, nine years ago when Renee and Daz met, and in the present. The time period was clearly marked at the beginning of the chapters. You could clearly see how the characters had grown and developed, seeing most of the history of their relationship. Very intriguing and passionate love story.
There was action in both time periods, and it was intense, energetic, and vivid. The fear, tension, and intense situations were well built, and kept my interest.
I don't shy away psychic storyline, I find them interesting. But in this story, after all the other psychic abilities, when the immortals were introduced, the story lost me.
But before that point, alluring and compelling second chance romance with vivid action, and intense situations
