An exciting, and action-packed last book… This is the fourth and final book in the Red-Hot SEALs series that can be read as a stand-alone. There’s an involved underlying storyline that carries across the series but the author provides a good recap and a list of the many characters. The New Ruling Order killed Amy Chastain’s husband six months ago, he was an FBI agent investigating the group. Along with her two sons she’d been kidnapped and held hostage to blackmail her husband. They were saved by the rogue SEAL team 7 but her ordeal didn’t end then, a dangerous experimental drug that enables GPS tracking of a person anywhere was injected into her sons, without an antidote they will soon die. Amy needs assistance to save her sons and the only person she feels safe with and that she totally trusts is the Commander of the SEAL team who rescued her family and took them to a place of relative safety in the Alaskan mountains. Working together they’re racing against time to save two young lives, the growing feelings they elicit from each other were unexpected and have to be dealt with gingerly considering the nature of the trauma Amy has been through. Hiding within a secret military base belonging to the Native American Indian nation, Commander Jace (Mac) MacKenzie and the remainder of his team are still considered wanted, guilty of treason by their own country. Their mission has been to clear their names but they must also now stop the NRO’s grand design which when it’s uncovered is a diabolical conspiracy that will affect all of mankind. Mac is drawn to the woman his team rescued and her children who are still in grave peril and are embroiled in the fight against the NRO. His team has seen many strange things that are hard to believe and already survived so much, they won’t stop until they’ve achieved their goals. They’ve lost their country’s resources yet find even greater resources amongst the Indians that shelter them. In this exciting, and action-packed last book we get the answers to the complex conspiracy that was spread across the globe. The men of the SEAL team have evolved from this harrowing experience, the paranormal/mystical is now a part of their lives, accepted for valid reality. They’ve learned to do what needs to be done regardless of consequences, justice has a greater importance than the law when the enemy is cold and calculating and has no morals. Great characters and multiple points of view help the reader ponder the myriad enigmas, the suspense continued throughout with more betrayals but not from whom you would expect. I liked the technological advances within the story that may or may not be in the realm of science fiction as it’s not inconceivable that they could become reality, a realistic progression from what is known. This reader would have liked more closure on two things: Wolf and Jillian are left at an impasse and one is left hoping they find their way, and how were the underlying pieces of the NRO finally dismantled after the heads of that hydra were taken down. An advanced reading copy was obtained from the publisher via NetGalley.

This was such a good end to this series! It was a very enjoyable and entertaining read for me. Great connection between Mac & Amy. You could really feel it! This is one of my favorite romantic suspense series. Sorry to see it end.

I think this is kind of a Marmite series, you either love it or hate it. On paper I should hate it, and yet its weirdness works for me. The series follows a team of Navy SEALs (Team seven) who have got accidentally involved in a secret cartel's deadly agenda to rid the earth of 90% of its population - the cartel call themselves the NRO or New Ruling Order. Made up of a group of eight super-wealthy men and one woman the NRO have subverted high ranking individuals in the FBI and law-enforcement and have framed SEAL Team seven. As I said in my review of book three, this series merges the paranormal (think woo-woo rather than vampires) with spec ops. If visions of future events, psychic healing and telepathy aren't your thing, walk away now. After the events of the last three books SEAL Team seven are holed up in Alaska, near Denali National Park in Shadow Mountain with an elite group of Native American warriors known as the Shadow Mountain warriors, the three girlfriends of the SEALs from the previous books and Amy Chastain and her two young sons who were injected with an isotrope which enables the NRO to track them anywhere (except Shadow Mountain). If you are still reading then this could be the series for you. As this is ostensibly the last in the series I don't recommend starting with this book, even with the handy cast of characters and 'Sitrep' at the start of the book it took me a while to get back into the story. In some ways this reminds me of a Robert Heinlein book (Lost Legacy, I think) in which humans with psychic abilities battle the evil group who want total world domination. There's genius scientists who create amazing machines, which are then subverted by the NRO for their own nefarious purposes. There's a grumpy SEAL Commander who has a secret longing for Amy Chastain, despite his typical (fictional) SEAL belief that he doesn't trust women, doesn't need a woman, and nothing can ever come of it. There's secret training facilities, experimental helicopters, superyachts and more psychic abilities than you can throw a stick at. It was absolutely barking mad and I loved every second of it! I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
