Book Description: Each book in this series is a complete story unto itself. There are no cliffhangers. I wouldn't do that to you. You can read them out of sequence. Enjoy!
How many times can a man say he’s sorry?
Connor Maher is about to find out. As if dogging the brutal Sonoran Cartel through sun-baked Utah isn't tough enough, he's come face to face with his worst nightmare. Diminutive ex-Marine spitfire, Isabella Ramos, has just three words to say to him: I. Hate. You. Like he hasn’t heard that before.
Why was he the one who got to live?
Izza only accepted the Utah operation because of Connor. It’s time he knew the truth, but how can she trust him with her life much less the secret she’s come to share? He's nothing but grief personified behind the guise of an blue-eyed, honorable man. Not until the cold-blooded Sonoran Cartel dumps them in the farthest corner of the relentless Utah desert does she begin to realize….
There are worse things than death.

The author has given her readers another unforgettable story of love and honor. Every character is a hero before they begin their current mission. All of the men and women are former military people with special skills used by the security company. That is a simple term for the special missions they often find themselves on such as this one with Conner and several other members of Alex's company. Conner is part of a team sent to back up a DEA team scoping out a dangerous and growing drug cartel. Little did Conner know he would be coming face to face with a former Marine he'd toured with in Iraq. Izza was as tough or tougher than any male marine and spent most of her time proving it. She hated Conner, or so she repeatedly told him. She was tiny but made up for lack of size with her smart mouth and abilities. She knew he would be on this mission and had to tell him sooner or later now might as well be it. Little did she know just how different the mission would become. Conner didn't want to face Izza again. Didn't want to hear her words of hate. But she was part of the team and he'd do what had to be done. The mission went up-side-down fast and ...well you need to listen or read this one to learn -- no spoilers. I can tell you that this team and the people who work with them are amazing, expect no metals. They just do their job. Save the people who need saving. Take out those who need taking out. They work together and their combined skills make them a force to match the power of a hurricane. This is a love story but Izza is a bit hard to take until you learn her story. When they say love conquers all, even sassy, foul-mouthed Izza falls under the saying. Be prepared to have your emotions stretched, from tears, smiles, love, hate, disgust and just about every other emotion. Like all the other stories in the series, it stands alone but will make you want to read more about the people in the team you meet along the way. If you listen to the audio: The narration is wonderful. I love the deep voice of Troy Duran. He sounds exactly like you expect these guys to sound.
I loved reading Izza And Connor's story. I was excellent.
