Publisher's Summary

Of the six Montgomery brothers, Zach has always walked on the wild side. He rocketed to fame playing a hero in a movie, but off screen he’s living in the shadows. Zach’s dark secret: He leads a double life as a CIA operative. When a mission to stalk a terrorist goes horribly wrong, Zach’s cover is blown. He’s on the run and fighting to stay alive long enough to discover whom he can trust - and who betrayed him.
Jenna Walters thought she’d married the perfect man - until she unearthed his terrible secret. Now, desperate to escape his crosshairs, she and her son take refuge in Zach’s secret hideaway. Sparks fly between Zach and Jenna even as danger explodes around them.
From Afghanistan to Turkey to the mountains of Colorado, assassins track them and are closing in. Not only is Zach’s life at stake, but now Jenna and her son are targets in this high-stakes game.

Good Story, Great Narration

I was usually save my credits for more expensive books, but I'm glad I got this one, it's a sweet story with lots of emotion, If your looking for hot sex, keep looking, but if you want a satisfying story with a great narrator this is it. I will be looking for more from this author! One thing though, it's a bit unbelievable how much havoc one lady and a kid can wreak on one mans life. I think I would have told her to get lost several times along the way! but if you can suspend belief as easily as I can It's an enjoyable read.

Good story, but great narration

Superb narration. No complaints on that score. As for the story, it's your typical romantic suspense. I'd give the text about 3.5 or 4 stars. It's enjoyable, entertaining, and somewhat heartwarming, even though fairly extreme, with some plot holes.

I figured out the villain's identity easily and quickly. The author makes everything clear. Not much guesswork needed to comprehend the plot or predict what will happen next. No surprises.

I liked the scenes with the Mongomery brothers teaming up to fight the baddies. Happy to see Zach reunited into the clan. Good scenes with their mother, Anna. The SWOT team sniper, Jasmine, from book 1, plays a small role, too.

Decent romantic relationship development. One sex scene, at about 75% into the story. I liked the hero and heroine, but they both carried around too much guilt and regret. Personally, I grow bored with internal rumination, especially when it's focused on past regrets.

Lots of scenes center around the five year old boy, Sam. If you don't like children in the story, this is not for you. Personally, I do like kids, if done well. Sam's dialogue and characterization is fairly believable here, but not quite right.

Some basic swearing, but not very much, and little or no profanity. One sex scene. Some beatings, violence, and bloody murder.
