adventure, intrigue, hot and spicy characters both male and female and all from an author who gets what a reader wants and needs to keep them flipping pages, grabbing at the next book in line and getting lost in scenario after scenario where no two are the same save for the level of heart pounding action and spice.This journey took us along with Commander Tucker, who so far has demonstrated the ability to lead by sheer ability and respect, an intensity that all true and powerful leaders have We get to see what makes this Goliath tick and how a 90 pound 12 year old girl can humble him and turn his sneer into smiles and laughter O to be human again and to regain his ability to go by his first name, Vail.This cutie pie Sophie who really is one endearing character who makes us all smile at her sass and antics, her love of life and innocence which is so contradictory to her true background which her mother, Tucker s kryptonite, Carmen, shielded her from and spent her adult life trying to escape Excerpt A loving mother and the beautiful person she s nurtured in an impossible situation Carmen, who was planning on sacrificing her life to ensure her daughter has a real opportunity to be normal and no stigma to hold her down and eventually through and with Tucker, they regain their humanity and hope in a future, not a slow lonely drift to the end but a true chance at happiness.We see how life s experiences both good and bad shape our future selves Excerpt It s because we can t unsee the things we ve seen, unknow the things we know We re scared of what life could give us to lose and it is only through trust and the ability to grab ahold of our honest desires to embrace what we want for ourselves and loved ones that we can find happiness and in their case a true chance at love.Funny that Ms Mitcham was able to inject such warmth and fuzziness into this book which is about one of the crustiest and most somber of characters of the earlier novels You just want to hold onto the end like a nice dream in a cozy comfy bed you just don t want to break the magic Now by no means is this the only scenes and emotions evoked in this book, you are also treated to bombs and blasts and gun fights with vile Cartel thugs and kidnappers We hold our breath as friends are hurt and the evil never seems to end as wave after wave exposes another layer of garbage to clear out How this little lady comes up with all this non stop thrilling scenarios is beyond me Every book has its own theme and does not lack from the last Brava yet again I am hooked Wait I said that before I am hook, line and sinker head over heels a Base Branch Junkie 5 stars This started at the cliffhanger left in the previous book but it is not necessary to have read it first but if you haven t why not

closed off heart to be once again opened to the possibility of love Another action packed book with really well developed characters and plotline Tucker s 5 stars This started at the cliffhanger left

born a lot in order to protect her daughter Highly recommended read This woman knows how to make an entrance and an impression, she also leaves behind some devastation Coming into this book on the back of the third book I wasn t sure how it would go so I had my fingers crossed With the words Commander Tucker is dead at the end of the last book I thought well this can go three ways either this is Vail s recapping story, he isn t dead or it is about another character investigating his death Well I am not going to spoil it except to say it is so worth readi This woman knows how to make an

Commander Tucker is dead at the end of the last book I thought well this can go three ways either this is Vail s recapping story, he isn t dead or it is about another character investigating his death Well I am not going to spoil it except to say it is so worth reading A young girl snatched and then rescued, a bond is formed with rescuer Getting to know each other, learning from one to the other works both ways This is in many ways heartwarming, yes there is extreme violence and explicit sexual content but above all there is a building love and trust between these characters that melt your heart All are crying out for family of the honest truthful and loyal kind, either because of previous loss or because the blond variety just aren t worth having I found them loveable and easy to like, the young girl adorable The bond they build is something you can only wish for in your own life I am loving this series full of action, adventure and suspense Lots of hot men with strong scruples who when they find their soul mates fall hard and fast, the women are strong mostly independent and as feisty as possible, they can stand their ground with any of the men and fight just as well as they can Each story is gripping, often edge of your seat reading but also loving in how the team members interact together the support given and how the male female bond through bad extremes You do need to read from the first book as the stories often cross over both with characters, countries and storylines I do not feel they are stand alone and to get the full benefit it is worth the investment This review is a repost.I love this series Megan Mitcham does a great job of combining thrilling action and suspense with red hot romance I ve been a fan of her and this series since I read the first book,
