As a Special Forces operative, Aaron Spears treated relationships like Tangos. He’d seen the wreckage of his Task Force brothers’ attempts and had no desire to put any woman through the hardship. He had one purpose – serve his country and protect his teammates. Then Celine Latimer walked into his life and turned his world upside down.
Celine Latimer thought she’d hit the jackpot when hunky SF operative Aaron Spears asked her to accompany him to the high-profile wedding of Senator Cotter’s daughter. They’d get to spend two weeks together while Aaron pulled guard duty for Caroline Cotter and Celine intended to use every spare minute, seducing the man she’d had a crush on for over a year.
The time and place proved to be more of a barrier than either of them realized. With his commander watching his every move, Aaron couldn’t afford to show any weakness. That meant ignoring Celine.
Rejected and hurt, Celine packed to leave only to be caught in a kidnapping plot against the Senator. Here she sat, in a hut in the Middle East, waiting on a rescue that may never come.
He’d sworn to protect and he’d failed. Now Aaron lived for one purpose- to rescue the woman he lost before she’s sold into slavery and spend the rest of his life making her see how much he loves her.
I was a bit confused by this book and I’m not sure if it’s because I did not read the rest of the series or that the blurb did not reflect what happened in the book. I was a bit lost since the blurb did not say one way or another if this had to be read as part of the series of if it was a standalone. So we start off with Aaron and his team trying to rescue Caroline and Celine after they had been kidnapped. It was really confusing since the blurb did not actually cover what happened in the book, but it was almost like a prologue to the story contained in the book. I’m not sure if that summarized events that happened in a prior book and unfortunately, there are also issues that are not resolved in this story so it is cliffhanger-ish. The beginning was a bit puzzling since it just was the bio’s of the 10 team members and I didn’t know what it was at first. I did like the story, but it was a bit superficial and a bit confusing which could have been due to the fact that I did not read the series. So I would say don’t start on book 8 of this series, but since I did enjoy the characters and it would be good to know the story from the beginning.
I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
