Publisher's Summary

Abby Sinclair had a desperate childhood until she was rescued and adopted by a retired army ranger who molded her into a master of self-defense. Now, she's a cunning and fearless assassin thrust into assignment after dangerous assignment, using everything she has - nerve, resilience, strength, sex - to come out on top. Her only rule: Trust no one.
Abby's latest assignment is in Colombia: Go undercover and snuff out a dangerous arms dealer active in the underground sex trade. But when Abby purposely blows her cover in a last-ditch attempt to free the helpless victims, deadly mercenary Kane Woodland is recruited as back-up. His mission: Get Abby out of that hellhole.
The last thing Kane expects is to feel a primal attraction for Abby. But when she convinces him to join her on her perilous mission, their newfound passion could put the lives of their whole team at risk.

Ohhhhhh tough girls, bad guys

Ok if you read my reviews you know I love strong women and tough men. This one is packed with both and it’s exciting from the beginning. It’s one of the best tough girl books I’ve heard lately. This is a great start to a new series and I’ve been introduced to some characters that I can’t wait to hear their stories.

Abby is an assassin. Her past could have destroyed her but instead it’s made her strong. Did it make her too strong? Will she push her chance for love away? As she tries to save the lives of a group of kidnapped children from evil, sadistic men, will Abby trust Kane with her heart?

Kane is so tough but he’s tender too. He loves strong women but has he met one that’s too strong for him? Can he make it past Abby’s defenses and show her what love is? Kane’s team works together with Abby’s team of assassins in trying to save the children but will he be able to save Abby?

In the midst of all this we have all kind of danger and intrigue. This is definitely worth a credit. I can’t wait for the next story in this series.

- Leesa "I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end."

Special Ops Romance

This was a very entertaining special ops romance. There was enough romance mixed with action to keep the story interesting and to actual have me looking forward to the next installment. Abby is a strong female lead and for the most part doesn't end up being a a dumb bimbo in the end. Which often happens with the alpha romances. It was nice to see Elle introduce potentially strong female leads for future installments. Yes the men are alpha and Kane stays true to this trait. Steaming romance level fits this book. And doesn't go over the top. Narrator was okay not great but did not take away from the story. Escapism for a credit
