Blurb: SHE’S DESPERATE TO LEARN THE TRUTH
When always-play-it-safe Jenna Ryan starts questioning how her brother died in Afghanistan, someone decides she must be stopped. Permanently. Her brother’s best friend—a sexy thrill-seeker she can’t stop thinking about—won’t reveal what he knows about the fatal shoot-out, putting Jenna at odds with the only man she trusts to keep her alive.
THE TRUTH IS THE ONE THING HE CAN’T GIVE HER
Former special forces operator Mick Fury would give his life to keep his best friend’s irresistible sister safe. He took an oath to stay silent about their last mission, but Mick’s will is tested by the white-hot attraction to Jenna he’s tried to ignore for years. Now he must risk everything—even falling in love—to protect her from the truth that could destroy them both.
Favorite quotes: “You’re playing with fire here, honey. You know me. You know I never stick around for long. And then what? Friendships don’t survive that kind of thing, Jay.”
“I want you like I’ve never wanted anything or anyone,” he whispered in her ear. “It’s always been that way with you.”
Thoughts: Having never read this author before, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this book! The action in it kept you intrigued and made it a great suspense story with a military angle, yet it also maintained a good balance for the romantic side of things. I’ve also always been a sucker for the whole brother’s best friend denies his attraction to his best friend’s sister. And once this guy caves to his feelings, he’s all in. A great read with two thumbs up for me!
