My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hooyah – What an intense book that not only show’s the life of Navy Seal’s both on and off of the battlefield but also that suffering from PTSD can come from things other than war.

The story of Kayla and Commander Thane Austen is only started in this book – it will be finished in a second book. Did that take away from the awesomeness of the story? NO. I cannot wait for the next book to get the conclusion of Kayla and Thane’s story.

Commander Thane Austen is a Navy Seal and he made a decision long ago that the only person he would be married to was the Navy. He is a strong leader and has a great team he leads on missions and that is all he needs. That is until a woman from Canada is hired to be the new tactical specialist and she ignites something in him he didn’t even think existed. Even though this is a romance there is a lot of read time on the missions and what a tactical specialist does. The way the author wrote these scenes had me glued to the pages in interest. Many of Thane’s Seal’s team also gets plenty of face time and even POV’s through out the book. In the middle of all of this are two side plots happening. One is a vicious serial killer who is killing women on base. The other is Kayla’s past which is slowly revealed to us through out the book from which she suffers PTSD from.

This book was riveting from beginning to end and I look forward to the conclusion.
