Gabe Maddox married Skylar James eight years ago and he hasn’t seen her since. She’s now been abducted and LCR is engaged to rescue her and Gabe’s point man for the operation.

 

We finally get the story behind Gabe’s marriage, which slowly unfolds throughout most of the book. I enjoyed the flashback device used to relate the details, sometimes from each of their points of view. The kidnappers are heinous and, as is typical of this series, the experiences are really tough, gritty and frightening. It made for many exciting and tense moments.

 

I loved Skylar and was happy Gabe had a formidable partner. He, however, drove me nuts with his stubbornness. There was a pretty good balance between the suspense and romance, though there were plenty of thrills.

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!
