Even with a degree in psychology and a keen ability to read people, security specialist Bree Graves can’t seem to get a bead on her boss. There was a time she thought she had him figured out but she’d been wrong. Still, she loves her job with PASS and her team has become her family. However, she doesn’t realize how much she needs them until her latest assignment puts her on the radar of a dangerous stalker.
For Yanis Mazur the safety of his PASS team is paramount. Even if that means sacrificing his personal life. Not only did he spend years building his security firm, but also the shield protecting his emotions. Yet when the one person who could breach his walls goes missing during an assignment he sent her on, he’s willing to risk both his business and his heart to get her back.
A victim of obsession, betrayal, and violence, Bree has no choice but to put her faith in the man who almost broke her.
This book is about a second chance. Yannis and Bree had been through a lot and after a long separation they try to find together. The separation was only private they still worked together all the time, and in previous books you got a hint of the chemistry they both had to each other. Now to read their story was great and heartwarming. So many misunderstandings in the past and so much love in the future :).
There is a large ensemble of secondary characters, and I always love in Freya’s books, that it’s a funny mix of characters of former books, and criss-crossing all through Durango and Great Junction. It’s always a feeling of coming home, being welcomed and in the middle of the investigations.
The suspense plot has many twists and surprises and kept me reading on and on…
I adore Freya’s style of writing. Each word transporting an emotion and a suspicion, and she is able to mix the love and the crime story in a realistic pace. The erotic moments were hot and I also love that Freyas protas are mature , older and with realistic misbehavior , problems and handicaps.
I highly recommend this story, the entire series and all of Freya barkers books, she is my personal queen of romantic suspense
