Driven by grief and fury, Shea Monroe, an operative for Last Chance Rescue, goes deep undercover, vowing vengeance against the man who killed her husband. Instead, she ends up a captive and the unwilling weapon of a vicious human trafficker. But then she is rescued from her den of terror and shame by her husband's best friend, Ethan Bishop, a man Shea feels irrevocably drawn to, despite her having lost all memory of her life before she was captured.

Having saved Shea from a madman, Ethan will do anything to keep her safe, but he can't allow the feelings he once had for her to resurface. While recovering from her ordeal and regaining her lost memory, Shea begins to fall for Ethan. But the treachery and tragedies of the past won't leave either of them alone. And from Mexico, a monster has sent his foot soldiers to seize Shea-using a weapon beyond anyone's worst nightmare.

 

Quick Summary
Shea Monroe goes deep undercover, so deep her friends and associates at Last Chance Rescue don’t even know. She’s trying to get the creep who killed her husband, Cole, but she what gets into is deep trouble. Ethan Bishop comes out of retirement to rescue her and finds anything but a willing hostage.

 

The mission
The target of Shea’s mission is a sleazy rat named Donald Rosemount who, among many other distasteful things, is a professional kidnapper. How he goes about recruiting help is even worse than the abductions. Getting Shea from his clutches is the least of Ethan’s worries. Saving her from herself after what Rosemount did to her is a huge challenge.

 

What really works
Ethan had a history with Shea before her marriage to Cole. As he works to unravel the mess Rosemount made of Shea, he’s also struggling with his unresolved love for and guilt about her. The romance and the suspense were expertly woven so one was always part of the other. That’s really tough to do but it’s a strong talent of Christy Reece. They were always at risk of discovery and there weren’t any stupid moves made by anyone. In fact, these are some of the most smart operatives who have extremely skilled tactics that weren’t predictable. Refreshing.

 

The bottom line

I must disclose upfront that Christy Reece is now an auto buy for me. This is the third book in the series and I wish I could drop all my reading obligations and just finish the series! It has everything that you want in a romance and an action story. Ethan is far from perfect but that’s what works. Shea’s fierce and tough, a heroine I came to admire. Run to this book!

 

 

 

 

About Christy Reece

Growing up in a tiny Alabama community boasting only one stop sign and a gas station gave Christy ample opportunity to create daring adventures in her head. When she wasn’t thinking of her story characters, Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys kept her entertained and out of trouble. Later came the chills of Stephen King and the thrills of John Grisham, but the romance genre always held a strong place in her heart. After years of talking to the characters in her head, she finally decided to write the stories they had been telling her. Now, she and her characters couldn’t be happier.

Christy lives in Alabama with her husband, five incredibly cute but precocious canines, and one very shy turtle.

I LOVE reading and am just crazy about so many series and writers. I’m open to exploring new authors and genres and appreciate those who not only write well but can deliciously craft a character and a tale. Your suggestions for new authors and titles are very much welcomed.

I also love to talk about books. There’s nothing more exciting than to finish a great story and cover it A to Z with other people, exploring different perspectives and points of view. So, if you see something on my shelf you’d like to talk about, send me a message and we’ll talk!

  1. I’ve read every contemporary book that Christy has written, as well as her new series by her new pen name ~ Ella Grace. I LOVE the Rescue Me series and her Ella Grace one is great as well. She’s a great reader. If you love Reece, I’d suggest Cindy Gerard as another read. Similar and very good!
