A decorated hero, pararescueman Liam McCabe lives to serve. Six months ago, he and Rachel Flores met in the horrific aftermath of an earthquake in the Bahamas. They were tempted by an explosive attraction, yet parted ways. Still, Liam has thought about Rachel every day—and night—since.
Now, after ignoring all his phone calls for six months, Rachel has turned up on base with a wild story about a high-ranking military traitor. She claims no one but Liam can help her—and she won’t trust anyone else.
With nothing but her word and the testimony of a discharged military cop to go on, Liam would be insane to risk his career—even his life—to help this woman who left him in the dust
I'm completely hooked on this series, just can't get enough. It is a great mix of military life, suspense, action, romance, and friendships.
Liam and Rachel met in the Hot Zone, and the attraction was clear, but Rachel was cautious. Now, six months later she needs his help, because of a serious case of treason, that has come to her attention. And the action takes off. Not only are they running from attacks against them, they have to find out, and soon, who is the culprit behind the mess they life is turning out to be.
Liam and Rachel have amazing connection, that is more than just physical attraction. Liam is as good as they get, when it comes to heroes. Rachel is independent, stands for herself, and don't let anyone mess with her.
I love how Mann lets us see more into the secondary characters' lives as well. Brandon and Cat were so sweet together, I was rooting for them all the way. The way they accept each other, as they are, and respect each other, are ready to fight for what they have, just melts your heart.
The camaraderie of the PJs, the family feeling, how they are willing to take care of each other, protect each other, is a beautiful thing. And all the information and inside to the service dogs and therapy dogs was absolutely intriguing.
The suspense side of the story wasn't as intense as in the other books of the series. There was action, but mostly the focus was setting on the scene and on the building relationships.
