A betrayal he couldn’t forget . . .
For Nate Dean, love is a four-letter word. As part of a secret black-ops military unit, he and his brothers were genetically engineered by the government to be ruthless soldiers with an expiration date. They were loyal only to one another . . . until Nate laid eyes on the woman who stole his heart and blew his world apart. Now, years later, his family is still paying the price for his mistake. But as time runs out, there’s only one person who can save his family: the very woman Nate swore he’d never trust again.
A love she couldn’t deny . . .
The moment Audrey Madison spies Nate across a crowded ballroom, she can barely breathe. He’s just as undeniably sexy as she remembers, yet there’s an edge to him now that’s as irresistible as it is dangerous. When he asks for her help, Audrey can’t refuse. But she has secrets of her own–secrets that, if Nate ever discovers them, may cost them both their lives.
Nathan Dean did not disappoint. I was really looking forward to his story and finding out what happened with him and Audrey in the past. I was so curious as to how they got together in the first place. While I love both Nathan and Audrey, this story didn’t have quite the intensity of the previous books, Forgotten Sins and Sweet Revenge. It was still an amazing read, I just didn’t feel as “edge of my seat” suspense as the other stories.
There were so many players in this story that I didn’t trust. It seemed to me that Audrey put her trust in too many people, even while being cautious. So I was constantly waiting for the other faces of these people to show. Like Audrey, I want to believe in the good in people. Like Nate, I just can’t let my guard down that much. Plus, seeing Audrey’s faith in her mother and her belief that her mother had some kind of soul deep down made it hard to trust her judgement.
Of course, the Dean brothers came through for Nathan. I would expect nothing less. But, to be honest, for a bit there I was very concerned about their “plan”. I don’t even know if you can call what they did a plan! But these guys are so well-trained, I shouldn’t have doubted them.
I enjoyed the chemistry between Nate and Audrey. It was sweet to watch them reconnect and see how protective Nathan was, even when he still felt betrayed by her. And Audrey proved to be a touch cookie, much tougher than I was giving her credit for.
All fiction requires an element of suspension of disbelief. This series is starting to get to a point of pushing that envelope. Not, as you may think, with the experiments and abilities given to the soldiers. No, it’s the timeline. I feel like the Dean brothers have only had weeks to get rid of their kill chips for a year now. I know there’s only one book left in this series and we’ll finally “meet” the dead/not dead Jory. I can only assume this kill chip matter will finally be resolved. I’m really loving this series, I only wish I didn’t feel like the author was pushing the bounds with that timeline.
