After putting her life on the line to protect classified intelligence, military psychologist Mia Kensington is on a cross-country road trip from hell with an intrusive save-the-day hero. Uninterested in his white knight act, she’d rather take her chances without the ruggedly handsome, cold-blooded operative who boasts an alpha complex and too many guns.
AND THE MAN SENT TO STOP HER
Colby Winters, an elite member of The Titan Group, has a single objective on his black ops mission: recover a document important to national security. It was supposed to be an easy in-and-out operation. But now, by any means necessary becomes a survival mantra when he faces off with a stunning woman he can’t leave behind.
MUST PARTNER TO SURVIVE
When Titan’s safe houses are compromised, Colby stashes Mia at his home, exposing his secret—he’s the adoptive father of an orphaned baby girl. Too soon, danger arrives and Mia lands in the hands of a sadistic cartel king with a taste for torture. As hours bleed into fear-drenched days, Colby races across the globe and through a firestorm of bullets to save the woman he can’t live without
Their is potential here in this story. Unfortunately, I didn't find the relationship between the characters believable. Nor did I found them particularly likeable. However, there is a lot of action that drives the story - South American drug Lord, kidnapping, commando rescue. Clearly, this is going to be a series as we are introduced to characters meant to peak our interest, and it did. There is enough goodness here to get me to try the next book.
IN A NUTSHELL:
This is a crowded field where it is difficult to stand out without engaging characters. However, there is enough interesting aspects to this story to make it worth reading and continuing on in the series.
Thank you to the author, Mill Creek Press, and Netgalley for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
