Ignoring his instincts once cost Simon a vital op-and the life of his best friend, Ryan. Now as escalating, violent attacks hit A-Tac, another person he loves is in danger. Homeland Security agent Jillian Montgomery's investigation has suddenly brought her back into Simon's life, and unless they can learn to trust each other, their dangerous mission will fail.
After her husband Ryan's death, Jillian dedicates herself to saving others. She can't afford to be tempted by Simon, even though his every touch reignites the desire they once shared. But in the last desperate minutes before disaster strikes, their second chance at love might be the most lethal trap of all . . .
I love the A-Tac books. Simon is part of A-Tac and still feels like an outsider. While getting a checkup for his busted leg, he runs into someone from his past that he never expected to see again. J.J. the woman he loved and lost to his best friend, the friend whose death was Simon's fault. Through a twisted series of events Simon and J.J. are partnered to stop the latest threat from the Consortium. Both have issues because of the past and they need to work through it to have a future, but the also have to solve the case for there to be any chance of that.I love the team and how they work together. Simon and J.J. were the focus of this book, but we also get the other members of the team working with them and helping them. It was sad that Simon and J.J. had been in love for years but because of circumstances, they hadn't pursued the relationship because each thought the other didn't want it. The story line was good, seeing both the good guys and the bad guys agenda and knowing it had to work out somehow. Simon and J.J. coming together was easy but them actually being together was something both had to work at. I can't wait for the next in this series!
This was a solid 4/5 for just a romance, suspense and adventure. If you are into the series, it is a 5/5.
