Socialite Trista Patterson has turned her back on her life of privilege and dedicated herself to helping others. Her mission to protect the world’s children often takes her into the bleak and violent underbelly of third world countries. When a kidnapping attempt goes wrong, Trista quickly finds herself running for her life...and married to a man she just met...as she’s placed at the top of the Cartel’s most wanted list.
Some days no good deed goes unpunished.
Dane O’Brien has spent his life in the shadows. Once a lethal assassin he grew tired of losing his soul with every hit, trading his gun and missions for a conference table and office politics as an undercover operative for the CIA. But when visiting his humanitarian sister turns deadly, Dane finds himself swearing to protect her beautiful and passionate friend Trista no matter the cost...even if it means stepping back into the world he swore never to return to. Although falling for the tough-hearted Trista is easy, keeping her alive is hard.
Review 4 out of 5 stars
A thrilling adventure that will keep you glued to the page. Suspend belief and hold on because things don't get more exciting than this. Between assassins, drug cartels, arms dealers, kidnappings, chases through the jungle, the bullets are flying non stop. The crew also seem to be able to travel halfway across the world at the drop of a hat and do so in record time. There is no hanging about.
Refreshingly, Eve is a woman who can handle herself in tough situations and proves her mettle on more than one occasion. She also has Dane tripping over himself to protect her. Dane is a good character and a bit more likeable than Simon. I really love how the two men constantly argued but behind all the macho bravado are good friends.
I received a copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
