This book's mystery grabbed me from the very beginning. Once I got started, I could hardly put the book down for more than a couple minutes. I was even trying to read while I was making dinner for my family. Needless to say, we ended up needing to order pizza.

I loved Blaine right from the beginning. A woman from his past texted to ask for help and he jumped right in to help her, no questions asked. Time and time again he proved that he has a need to protect those that are important to him. He would risk everything to make sure Delia was safe. 

Delia is such a strong character. She is thrown into a situation that for most people, would have had them freaking out. She keeps her wits about her and is able to offer assistance throughout the entire situation. 

I read more romance books than I do suspense novels, but this one was absolutely perfect. There was a lot of action and suspense, but it was perfectly balanced with the relationship developing between Blaine and Delia. You could tell, right from their first meeting, that there was something between them. Delia felt she could trust him right away. She trusted him with her life from their very first introduction.

This book is a stand alone, no cliffhanger, but there is a teaser at the end of a book about another SEALthat is mentioned in the book. I will be reading this book as soon as I can get my hands on it.

There are a couple scenes with violence, but more gun fire than physical violence. It is told in alternating POV.

The sound of the garage door going up startled me, setting me into motion. It was a good thing I had been trained to make split second decisions with limited information because that skill set was being put to the test right now. I moved toward the kitchen as I ran the possible scenarios through my head.
If it was Serena using a friend’s place to lay low, then I was in the clear. If it was a boyfriend or family member of the dead author, I was probably screwed. A cleaning person or friend, I might be okay. The bottom line was, I had no way of knowing which scenario I was about to face, but it didn’t matter. There wasn’t a chance in hell I was going out the back without knowing if the person walking through that door was Serena.

Right as my decision was made, I heard the sound of the garage door lowering, quickly followed by the door connecting the garage to the house opening and closing. A deep feminine sigh resonated, but I stayed in position, on the other side of the refrigerator and out of sight. The sound of footsteps got
closer and then a woman entered the kitchen. I hadn’t meant to make a noise, but I shifted as soon as I realized who was standing in front of me. I moved toward her so I could cover her mouth and get her under control before she screamed and one of the neighbors came to see what was wrong. And holy fuck, there was plenty wrong with this situation since the woman was supposed to be dead.

I absolutely adore reading - always have and always will. My friends growing up used to tease me when I would trail after them, trying to read and walk at the same time. If I have downtime, odds are you will find me reading or writing.

I am the mother of two wonderful sons who have inspired me to chase my dream of being an author. I want them to learn from me that you can live your dream as long as you are willing to work for it.

When I told my mom that my new year's resolution was to self-publish a book in 2013, she pretty much told me "About time!"
