The new SBG novel from the author of Exchange of Fire.When her secretly filmed tryst shows up on the internet, Michelle Alger goes on the run. She has no choice. Not only was her one-night stand the son of a US senator, but he’s been murdered—and she’s the number one suspect. With both the senator and an avenging drug lord on her trail, her life is in danger. There’s only man she can trust. He saved her once, but will he still be her hero six years later? Captain Jeremy Malone and the rest of Delta Squad have the senator’s order: find the mystery woman who killed my son. But to Jeremy, she’s no mystery. Six years ago his team of Green Berets rescued her from the torturous clutches of a Colombian cartel, and he’s never forgotten her. His personal and covert mission: find Michelle before anyone else. When he and Michelle do meet again, the sparks are explosive and consuming. They’re also dangerous as hell. Because with each new bit of evidence, Jeremy suspects that Michelle’s innocence may be a ruse—a beautiful trap set by a woman who has even more secrets yet to bare.
"A pair of dark eyes filled her mind. Rage, sadness, compassion, respect. All those emotions had fitted through his irises as he rescued her from Hell. Captain Jeremy Malone, Green Beret. Hero. She didn't remember much about the actual rescue, but she'd never forget his eyes or his voice. They spoke to her soul. Her feelings for that man went way beyond gratitude, though she had that in spades. It was like she had finally found the other half of herself she hadn't realized was missing. Her Cappy. The memory of his smile when she dubbed him the nickname because she couldn't muster the stamina to say more helped chase away the ghosts."
This is one of those books that had me from the prologue. It was the perfect set up for the story, one that had me wondering where it would lead.
When Cappy and Michelle are reunitied, I got exactly what I was hoping for. And Talon. I think I love that man...and his SCK nickname!
But, there was a lot of unexpected too. And plenty of detail. I really liked finding out about the history between old comrades, new enemies, and where true loyalty lies. This was a great continuation in the SBG Series. I look forward to the next! *wiggles eyebrows*
