Tormented by the death of his fiancee’ and forced to do the bidding of the local mob, former Navy SEAL Carson Fischer’s mundane and unhappy life is transformed when Katie Barrie shows up at a training class. While there is an instant and undeniable attraction between them, Carson knows he is no longer worthy of such a woman and tries to keep his distance. But Katie is persistent, and a relationship soon develops.
Just as things are finally going well, Katie’s own demons catch up to her. After abandoning her controlling husband and the family business – which cost it millions – Katie learns that the company plans to collect those lost millions by any means necessary. Can Carson and Katie weather the maelstrom together, or will Carson lose another woman he loves?
Carson ex Navy SEAL struggling with his past, gets involved with the mob. Katie, running from a pending divorce, starts over in a new place under a new name. They meet at a class they’re both taking. Carson is cautious about getting involved with Katie and tries to push her away. Katie, is forceful, she wants what she wants and will stop at nothing to get it.
The book is full of suspense. They find themselves in dangerous situations throughout. In my opinion, Carson comes across as being a little dense which got on my nerves because Katie is transparent with her moves and goes after what she wants.
Carson is put in an awkward situation, where he needs to protect Katie from the hell she’s been put in as well as keep himself alive. He needs to refer back to his training and get them out safe.
I rated this book three and a half stars because I enjoyed the suspense and I loved how it ended, like a romance should. Carson and Katie’s romance started out real quick and their bond and love grew stronger with the danger they faced together.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
My Rating: 3 1/2 out of 5
