Synopsis:

Step into Elaine Levine’s exciting new series of alpha warriors–products of the government’s secret corps of assassins called the Red Team:

Haunted by memories he cannot reach, stalked by an enemy bent on revenge . . .

Rocco Silas has come home to Wyoming after long years as a Red Team operative in Afghanistan. It isn’t easy returning to civilian life, especially burdened as he is with a staggering case of PTSD or hunted as he is by an enemy determined to seek an eye-for-eye–neither of which can he battle until he confronts the truth of what happened one fateful day in the high mountain ranges of the Hindu Kush.

. . . She alone holds the key to his sanity.

Mandy Fielding’s dream of opening a therapeutic riding center on her family’s ranch is almost within her grasp–until she hires Rocco Silas, a dangerous ex-Spec Ops friend of her brother’s. His haunted eyes and passionate touch promise a love she never dared believe possible. Can they confront the truth of his past and build a future together or will the enemy stalking him destroy them both?

~ My Review ~

This is one of the books I got as a freebie years ago. Like seriously. Amazon tells me I bought this November 4th, 2013 – it’s still for free if you were wondering – and I needed till 2015 to read it.

*facepalm*

Now I’m mad at myself that I haven’t picked this up ages ago.

I really liked this. The characters were likeable, the suspense was high and the guys were hot and funny.

Mandy, our heroine, is the owner of a ranch and her brother Kit is one of the members of Red Team. She was nice, understanding, helpful and did I mention nice? She was patient with Rocco and was not like a damsel in distress.

Rocco, our hero, is a former member of the Read Team. He is suffering under severe PTSD, because of something he can’t remember. He was undercover for a long time in a really bad region and has quite some scars – inside and outside.

I liked the relationship between Mandy and Rocco. I just would have like it if there would have stayed just friends for a little longer. The sexual relationship came out of nowhere, but once I adjusted to it, I quite liked it.

You’re probably wondering what the Read Team is by now, right? It’s a secret army brand. I don’t want to say more, because that’s just to much too explain and you better get the picture if you just read it 😉

Rating: 4 stars
