Skylar James told a lie to the man she married, and eight years later she still bitterly regrets the deception. Unknown to Skylar, her husband, Gabe Maddox, now lives in the dangerous shadows of elite operatives who rescue victims. When Skylar tries to save a naïve young beauty, kidnappers come after her. For Gabe, Skylar had been his last shot at trust and love. But news of her disappearance battens down his anger and launches him into action. Saving Skylar is Gabe’s only chance for peace and his last chance for happiness.
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.
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!
