To Save His Family, She May Be His Only Hope

A Strong-willed Woman

Working for the shadowy division of the Grey Justice Group is the perfect job for Kathleen Callahan. Compartmentalizing and staying detached is her specialty. Get in, do the job, get out, her motto. Wealthy businessman Eli Slater is the only man to penetrate her implacable defenses and she fights to resist him at every turn.

A Tenacious Man

Eli Slater has worked hard to overcome his family’s past and repair the damage they caused. A new light comes into his life in the form of security specialist Kathleen Callahan. Even though she rejects him and everything he makes her feel, Eli is relentless in his pursuit, determined to make her his own.

An Evil No One Saw Coming

Darkness has a way of finding and destroying light and Eli learns his family’s troubles are far from over. Dealing with threats and attempts on his own life is one thing, but when those he loves are threatened, it’s a whole new game. And he’ll stop at nothing to win.

But evil has a familiar face, along with an unimaginable goal of destruction, putting both Eli and Kathleen in the crosshairs and threatening the happiness they never believed they’d find.

Kathleen Callahan joins the Grey Justice Group as a security operative following a personal traumatic event and is assigned to work with Eli Slater. After the fall of his father and brother, he’s receiving death threats that include his two young daughters so he hires Kathleen to protect them. She has no idea that Eli orchestrated all this from the first moment he saw her.

 
I was glad that the saga regarding the Slater family continued in this story as there was so much unfinished business from the earlier book. The mystery surrounding the threats against Eli and his girls was puzzling and I enjoyed trying to unravel and solve it. Eli and Kathleen are strong, admirable characters, both with heartbreaking histories. Grey Justice continues to be an enigma and I’m dying to read his story.

 
I really like this series and story, especially its premise and characters. While they have noble objectives, they also have lots of flaws and imperfections…a perfect recipe for intriguing and interest stories. This wasn’t as suspenseful as the first book but it still kept me just as engaged. There are a couple of storylines left unresolved (no cliffhangers) so I’m definitely looking forward to the next 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.

    Angela Delvecchio, LCRs über researcher and assistant, has long wanted to be an operative and over the years, underwent all the training to become one. Now that her circumstances have changed, she’s making the move. Operative Jake Mallory isn’t too pleased about her first assignment. They’ve enjoyed a flirty relationship until now when they’ll be partnered to catch a dangerous serial killer. She wants more, him…not so much.   We’ve not known much about Angela until this story so learning her history was interesting. The heroines in this series often face some tough treatment and she’s no different. Her undercover assignment is provocative and challenges her relationship with Jake. It was interesting getting an insider’s view of exotic dancing, too. I enjoyed the […]

      Quick summary Jared Livingston was married and working as Kane Enterprises’ lead investigator in his last major appearance. He’s now divorced, an LCR operative and almost nothing like the character we knew from that story. He’s remote and has a reputation for taking significant risks but doesn’t have relationships with anyone aside from his existing one with Lucas Kane. Mia Ryker runs a rescue operation in Chicago and reaches out to LCR when she encounters an infant abduction case that seems to connect with one of theirs. She’s teamed with Jared and it’s an unlikely but brilliant match.   What I liked Mia is now one of my favorite heroines and only she could bring down the cold and stoic Jared. She’s natural […]

    Quick summary Jamie Kendrick was rescued from the hell known as Stanford Reddington’s world by LCR. Dylan Savage was the operative that actually located and removed her the night of the rescue. That night, a permanent unspoken bond was created between the two of them, one he was determined to resist and one she was determined to seal.   What I enjoyed I’ve looked forward to Jamie’s story since she emerged in the series. Her history was both intriguing and horrific. Dylan also was appealing as I recalled his thoughts at the moment he rescued her in Spain. It affected him deeply and profoundly. I really liked both of them as she is brave, courageous and resourceful and he is an incredible operative, […]

    Former Houston Detective Seth Cavanaugh has to suddenly and brutally sever his relationship with FBI Agent Honor Stone in order to protect her. Now it’s five years later and she’s an LCR operative and he needs their help in finding his niece who’s disappeared. They’re thrown together for the mission and both are struggling with their unresolved feelings.   I loved these two characters and how they dealt with each other when they were forced to reconnect. Theirs was a mature relationship and neither shied away from being honest and forthright about their feelings…no silly, drawn out drama…just two people struggling to cope and communicate while on the job.   The case was unusual in that it focused on a delusional and dangerous […]

  I couldn’t wait to start this book because I found McKenna to be fascinating in No Chance. It definitely didn’t disappoint. Quick summary It was speculated that McKenna had a seriously troubling backstory and seemed to be on the run. Everyone’s instincts were correct but they couldn’t have imagined how tragic her story really is. When she rescued Lucas Kane after having been kidnapped by Victor Lymes, he was determined to find this woman who he never could get out of his head. He makes it his mission to track her down to thank her and, maybe, just maybe, clear his mind of the woman who they called Ghost.   What I loved about this story Everything. It begins with the reveal of just […]

    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 […]
