My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Fabulous start to the series.. I still remember how I felt when I read Rescue Me – the first in the Last Chance series – and this was just as powerful. One of the biggest things I love is that Noah is running the new group. Cannot get enough of that man : )
There were plenty of new and old characters in Running On Empty. We meet Sabrina Fox and Declan Steele after they are married. Declan works for another covert group that Sabrina used to work for and Sabrina now works for LCR Elite. They had tons of history and what looked like a very strong bond/love for one another that nothing could tear apart. Well fate had something else in store for the two when Declan is presumed dead after an explosion.
I love the women that Ms Reece writes – they may not always come from a good background/childhood but they grow into strong kick-ass women. Sabrina stayed strong through it all even after her husband came back with wanting nothing but revenge against her for thinking she was a traitor and had him tortured for months. Poor Declan (I love his name BTW) mind was messed with so much during his torture/interrogations that even though he didn’t break his mind did end up believing the lies they told him. It was painful to watch Sabrina and Delcan together when he first returned because you knew of the love they had before it was ripped from them.
Even though these books are fiction, the emotions, partnerships and situations always feel so real. Its like an adventure reading one of Ms Reece’s books. I am so happy she started this new series and look forward to many books to come in the series.
