She's learning to live with her demons.
Victoria Gomez had a successful career as an investigative journalist, until a cartel boss she exposed destroyed her entire world in retaliation. She lost everything, including her family and her freedom. Since her brutal captivity she's been in witness protection, picking up the shattered pieces of her life and struggling to put the past behind her as she moves on. But there's one man she can't forget. The night of her rescue an elite DEA agent helped pull her out of hell. Now time is running short for them. They have no chance at a future, but she can't keep her distance any longer. Even if it means suffering more heartbreak when she's forced to leave him behind and walk away forever.
He's about to face his own.
As FAST Bravo's team leader, Brock Hamilton is used to being in charge and calling the shots. He was there the night Victoria was rescued. Since then they've forged a bond that has grown stronger every day--and neither of them can ignore the electric pull any longer. Yet just as they've found a fleeting happiness together, duty pulls them apart too soon. When a twist of fate lands him a prisoner of the same cartel responsible for all of Victoria's anguish, it will take all Brock's strength to survive. And if he does, it will mean living without the woman who owns his heart.

Victoria watched her entire family be murdered on the orders of the cartel boss she exposed in her book. Then she was held captive in chains and abused repeatedly until she was rescued by FAST. The first member to find her was team leader Brock Hamilton. From that point on and during her time in WITSEC they developed a bond. Brock admired Victoria's strength and he also had strong feelings for her. He was afraid to let her know just how strong since she had to leave soon as part of the WITSEC program. Then Brock was taken by the same cartel that had held Victoria captive. Could she help get Brock back and would they be able to have a future?
Another great read. Could not put it down
This book was so good. I loved finally seeing what happened to Victoria and Hamilton. Totally worth the wait.
