Audience/Genre: Adult, Romantic Suspense.
Publication: May 28th 2017 by Stone Hall Books.
Julian Bennet, head of Griffin Force, finally finds love with Zaya Altes, but the day he buys her an engagement ring, international terrorist Nazer al-Raimi abducts her. Getting her back consumes him, yet it takes nearly six months to find her. The daring mission to extract her from a hidden prison in Afghanistan is successful, but Zaya has suffered during captivity. Though she’s grateful to Julian for breaking her out, she wants nothing to do with him. Before he can show her how much he still loves her, Nazer finds them and vows revenge. Can Julian keep Zaya safe and still stop Nazer once and for all?

Zaya Altes nearly gave up hope of ever being rescued, but when Griffin Force finally finds her, returning to life is harder than she imagined. While her feelings for Julian are as strong as ever, she feels too broken to recapture what they once had. Instead, Zaya jumps at a chance to trap Nazer, wanting vengeance for what she’s endured. As the final showdown draws near, however, Zaya will have to make an unimaginable choice to let Nazer close to her again. But when a shocking web of betrayal is uncovered in their own ranks, their one chance to capture him is compromised. Julian and Zaya will put everything on the line, but can they survive this ultimate test and finally reach for their chance at happiness?

A book full of action, romance and suspense that will keep you wondering until the very last minute!

I enjoyed this book. I read it all in one intense reading! You are kept on your toes wondering what will happen next! Your mind tries to anticipate the next move but Nazer seems to somehow be one step ahead, so I didn't see a lot coming and I loved that I couldn't guess what would happen next. There are a few twists that you also didn't see coming!

My heart went out to Zaya for all she endured! She was mentally and physically tortured while held captive for 6 months. She all but gave up on rescue from Julian. She was ready to die. But then he did rescue her, but she had a lot of healing to do before she could have a relationship. Julian's heart was ripping in two for her and I as the reader felt it all. Julian went all out to do whatever it took to help her heal and sometimes it made Zaya feel like she still wasn't given choices, like she was as a prisoner and she had flashbacks too.

I loved loved loved the ending!

If you love romantic suspense, reading about torture, counseling, action, terrorists, stories that feel like a rollercoaster, clean reads, stories that have twists you don't see coming and finally being with the one person that makes you whole than this might be for you!
