Genre: Romantic Suspense

387 pages
About the Book:


CGIS Agent Noah Rowley is rocked to the core when several of his valued team members come under fire on his Coast Guard base. He and his remaining team race to the scene and end the attack, but not before innocent lives are lost. Furious and grief-stricken, he vows to do whatever is needed to bring the mastermind behind the attack to justice.

Stunned by the ambush, Coast Guard flight medic Brooke Kesler evacuates in a helicopter carrying the only surviving gunman. The gravely wounded man whispers mysterious information to Brooke that immediately paints a target on her back.

As Brooke and Noah race to uncover answers, emotions between them ignite. Noah struggles to protect Brooke at all costs and to conceal the secret that prevents him from becoming what he longs to be--the right man for her.

Everything is at stake as a horrifying truth emerges. . . .

The attack wasn't the end game. It was only the beginning.

My Rating & Thoughts:    

This felt like it was two stories in one as we are following two cases being investigated by different members of the team and two romance relationships are building. The cases themselves are not connected, but the team does work together to help main investigators solve the case. I really enjoyed the teamwork and group brainstorming sessions. The only problem I had with the story is that there was a lot of people who are not Coast Guard agents working on the cases, that didn't make sense. For example a flight paramedic wouldn't be allowed to sit in on interviews being done by a coast guard agent (at least I don’t think so). I really enjoyed both of the relationships we were following and seeing them develop in something more, I had been rooting for both sets of characters to get together since book two. All the main characters are Christians and their faith in God is a big part of the storyline, they talk opening about it quite a bit.
