Synopses & Reviews
From New York Times bestseller Cindy Gerard, an exciting new series featuring Mike “Primetown” Brown, a character from her popular Black Ops, Inc. series.
For the seven years after Operation Slam Dunk went south, Mike Brown got drunk on each anniversary. The eighth year was no different—until he was drugged by a woman and woke up to her questions about what had happened eight years ago in Afghanistan.
CIA attorney Eva Salinas has her own theory behind what happened to Mike’s team—which included her husband—in Afghanistan eight years ago, and she’s determined to prove foul play. Though she doesn’t trust him, Mike is the only person she can turn to for help. Under an assumed name, Eva convinces Mike to assemble a new team and go after the traitor who screwed up both their lives. As they track down the rogue who started it all, Eva and Mike discover they can’t live without each other. But can they stay alive while an enemy is still on the loose?
"Bestseller Gerard (Last Man Standing) works her successful formula of sexy special ops heroes and romantic suspense in this middling stand-alone. CIA attorney Eva Salinas needs to know what happened on the botched black ops mission in Afghanistan that killed her husband. Only ex-operative Mike Brown has the answers. Baffling the reader, Eva tracks Mike to a foreign country, lures him to a hotel room, drugs him, ties him up, and questions him at gunpoint. Considering his abduction and Eva's story of a mysterious flash drive of classified files, Mike thinks Eva is nuts until someone tries to kill them both. Danger-fueled romantic tension heats up as an investigation leads them to a sprawling international conspiracy linking American survivalist militias, Mexican cartels, and the Taliban. Sizzling chemistry will allow readers to forgive some rather contrived plot developments." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
“We can do this easy,” she whispered close to his ear as he groaned in agony, “or it can go real hard on you.”
Well, of course he wasnt going to go easy.
