About the book:
A killer is lurking in the shadows . . .
FBI agent Nina Brandt loves her job. Sure, she’s made some enemies, but she knows she’s making the world a better place. It’s lonely at times, but she has good friends to get her through. It’s a good life.
Little does she guess that her past is about to come back and haunt her . . . in more ways than one.
When Navy SEAL Quinn Stone learns that his geeky younger brother, Ty, hacked into the TSA’s No Fly List, he would rather take a bullet than go to his former fiancée, Nina Brandt, for help. Five years ago, she resented his commitment to his SEAL team and gave him an ultimatum – her or the team. He chose the team. But now, he and his brother have no other choice . . . not if he doesn’t want to see the kid behind bars.
Nina has finally moved on, but she can’t resist Ty’s plea for help . . . especially when he drops a bomb that could rock national security. The laptop he’d used to hack the TSA has been stolen. Fearing terrorists would do just about anything to get their hands on this list, Nina agrees to take the case to her team. After all, this will become an FBI matter and Quinn’s help won’t be needed . . . as much as she’s starting to want it.
But the thief has more on his mind than just the list. He’s been waiting for a chance to get back at the woman who sent him to prison two years ago. And he intends to make her pay – in the most painful way possible . . .
An absolutely incredible romantic suspense novel!
The main characters from book one make an appearance in this story but their actual story is not talked about so in my opinion this book can be read without having read the first book before it.
The characters in this book are fantastic! Both Nina Brandt and Quinn Stone have been extremely well developed and their family backgrounds are slowly revealed. This really to make me feel like I was getting to know people I have just met. I really enjoyed seeing how things, from each of their family’s worked to shape who they are and how they dealt with different situations throughout the story.
The fact that we met the bad guy from the beginning and knew what he was trying to accomplish all along added an extra level of excitement for me. The plot was so well presented that I was kept on my toes trying to see how the good guys were going to figure things out.
