My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Plenty of betrayal and mystery in this debut romantic suspense. Mick Fury met best friend Rob in basic training. They went on to become Air Force Parajumpers before switching to private security contractors with Claymore. When on their latest assignment in Afghanistan Rob is killed during an ambush and makes Mick promise he will protect his sister Jenna who has already had so much tragedy in her life.
When Mick gets back to the states he does what he can for a grieving Jenna while also keeping his distance which was another promise he made to Rob as he’s typically known as a playboy who lives for adrenaline rushes. But when they notice they are being followed and Jenna’s home is destroyed they figure out Rob must have stumbled onto something while in Afghanistan.
Mick has his hands full not only trying to protect Jenna but also trying to keep her from digging deeper into what happened to Rob while not alerting the bad guys who may be far closer than they think.
This was equal parts suspense and romance. Mick and Jenna both have misconceptions – Mick’s are about himself and Jenna’s are about Mick. As the two are trying to figure out the who and what about who’s after them they also have to deal with the feelings that have always been there between them.
