You’re at the top of your game. You have a prestigious position of reporting from locations all around the world trying to bring awareness to the injustices that go on. You’ve just met a man who gives you the best sex of your life in a place where unmarried sex is illegal. Things just couldn’t be better for reporter Laura Nilsson. Then her security and camera crew are slaughtered on live TV and she is taken by a terrorist to live a life of hell for almost 2 years.
The man that had that weekend of wild sex with Laura in Dubai has never forgotten her nor the feeling of helplessness when she was taken on live TV. Navy Seal Javier Corbray has waited to finally get the chance to bring down the man who killed Laura. When that mission finally comes up he leads the team that goes in to bring the terrorist to justice. What he doesn’t expect to find is Laura still alive and running for the HELO screaming.
This book is a no holds bar look at the atrocities that are being committed in the name of Al Qaeda and how that is spilling over into the United States. Laura’s time with the Al Qaeda terrorist has left her horribly scared on the inside. Two years after her ordeal testifying at his trial her nightmare starts all over again when he puts a terrorist hit on her head. Javier was helpless the first time but this time he is going to do everything in his power to protect Laura.
This is a very powerful book. The subject matter and the pain that Laura and Javier go through is so heartbreaking. As I was reading this book I could feel where the author poured her own experiences and culture into the pages. This is writing at its finest and I think it’s her best work to date.
