When Maddie Carter comes back from the grave, will Hawk have a fresh start with the one who got away?

Deep Six pilot, former Army Nightstalker, Rhett Hawkins, knew the day would come, but he had hoped it wouldn't be until after he was gone. Maddie Carter was destined to die young, because that is just how she lived. She flew by the seat of her pants and flying as all she cared about. He'd learned that the hard way, when he asked her to marry him and she shot him down.

But after her memorial service, Hawk just couldn't get past the feeling that something was wrong with the recounting of the events that led to the crash and her supposed death. Neither the helo or her body had been found. It drove him insane until he decided to do some investigation of his own. After getting conflicting stories from two surviving special operators, he knew he had to go the full distance to settle his mind.

Once in Central America, Hawk realizes there is much more going on than the Army knows. Not only is the now blacked-out military helicopter back in service, Maddie is behind the stick making drug runs for a brutal cartel.

When he has to convince her she needs to be rescued, Hawk sees she is not the same. Captain Maddie Carter is scarred, hardened and has no memory of him or her former life at all.

Back home, when her memory starts to return and secrets are revealed, could it mean he'd only rescued her to lose her again? Would those secrets change his own life forever too?

Loved it !

I love romantic suspense and Becky McGraw's Deep Six Security books are right up there as one of those series I am always waiting to see what she is going to do next. Hard Landing has not only one bad-ass pilot in it, but two and even though Maddie finds herself in a situation that totally blows, we know that Hawk an the Deep Six Security guys will get her out. This was one emotional read for me, a box of tissues was damaged in the reading of this book and I won't lie, there were some expletives thrown around. ;) A couple of times I wanted to smack people down and ask this author why!!!! Then at other times I could have stood up and cheered these characters on. What an amazing read.

Hard Landing was a great 5 star read. Maddie is in the military and ends up joining the Nightstalkers. She has always tried to please her father but always seems to be competing with her brother. She ends up saying goodbye to Hawk and breaking his heart, he had lots of plans for the two of them. He knows why she is doing this and is angry about it but can’t convince her to stay. We jump ahead a few months to Maddie’s funeral. Her body has never been found and Hawk is determined to find her. He convinces her brother and the Deep six team to help him search for her. Maddie is severely injured and is in extreme pain, when the Deep six team find her. She also has another surprise for Hawk. WIll these two find what they once had and get a HEA? This is my first read in the series and I loved it. My heart broke for the things that Maddie endured before and after her disappearance, her father was such an evil and hurtful man. The secondary characters were great and I can’t wait to get caught up on this series. This is a quick read that will have you on the edge of your seat. This is my first read from Becky McGraw and I look forward to reading more from her. I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book. Reviewed by MAustin from Alpha Book Club

What a great story. A wonderful storyline full of action, intrigue, romance, and strong heroes and heroines that get the job done. My emotions were up and down all over the place. It captured my attention from the beginning and held my rapt interest until the end.

Hard Landing is quick read that leaves some unanswered questions. The story of Hawk and Maddie has many twists and turns. I hope we get to read about Maddie in the future to see how she overcame certain things. The character development is quick and while this story is Book 6 in the Deep Six Security Series, it can absolutely be read as a stand-alone. There are so many things I want to put into this review because I wanted to yell and scream at a few of the characters at different points but I feel like I would be giving things away. Becky McGraw has become a “one-click” author for me.

Hard Landing is the sixth book in the Deep Six Security series and I think it might just be my favorite, well I say that now but that could change with the next one, lol. This is the story of Maddie Carter and Rhett "Hawk" Hawkins, and it will have you on a roller coaster from beginning to end. There are twists and turns, I got mad, I got angry, I laughed and I cried, this book will take you through a lot of emotions. Maddie is a strong, tough woman who thinks she knows what she wants out of life, but soon finds out that she was totally wrong. Hawk is a big tough guy, but he loves Maddie with all of his heart and will do whatever it takes to make her happy. What an amazing book, with my emotions going from wanting to strangle someone to wanting to hug them, great job Becky McGraw. I wish I could give this one more than five "got your six stars."

Hard Landing: Deep Six Security 6 Hawk By Becky McGraw Once again, Becky McGraw sent my emotions on a rollercoaster ride in Hard Landing. This is the story of Maddie Carter an Army helicopter pilot and Rhett Hawkins a former Army helicopter pilot who now works for Deep Six Security. This story will have you on the edge of your seat from the first chapter. After Maddie’s copter goes down in the jungle, Hawk is determined to retrieve her body and bring her home. With the help of her brother and other Deep Six members, Hawk heads down to bring her home. He never expected what he found. I had to stay up and continue reading because I had to see what was going to happen next. Both Maddie and Hawk had to overcome many obstacles once she is brought home and due to Hawk’s patience and love and the support of the members of Deep Six, we see the healing begin. This story contains everything you could want in a suspense; cartel members, torture and abuse, a cold father, possibility of prison time and finding love and support from family and friends. I waited for this book and was not disappointed. I highly recommend this story if you are looking for an amazing suspense. Warning though, have tissues handy.

Hawk and Maddie were in love. That's why when she was killed on a mission, his instincts would not let him rest until he could she her dead body. But what he found in the jungle was way more than he imagined. Maddie was injured and being used to make drug runs against her will. But she fights the men who say they are there to rescue her because she doesn't know them. Eventually they get her to trust them and they all make it out alive. Once back home Maddie struggles to regain her memory but that is the least of her troubles. Now that she's back, the government wants to know what really happened on that mission and is not convinced that Maddie is telling the truth. I received an advanced reader's copy in exchange for an honest review.

ARC for honest review with no compensation Hard Landing is book 6 in the Deep Six Security series and the final one. What a way to end this series and show the beginning of the next one Deep Six Security/East Coast. Way to go, Becky McGraw! Hawk and Maddie has been together for a long time, both are pilots but Maddie is always trying to show her father that she the best. Hawk knew when she left on her latest mission she probably would not be coming back but he was unprepared for her death. Even at the memorial service he still couldn’t believe she was gone forever…but when he started to have nightmares again they always had Maddie in the center of them. Something kept telling him that her death and how she died didn’t seem right. After six months of wondering, he decides to try and find her body and her plane and bring them home but when he and the Deep Six guys find her plane, she is flying it. Now he understands what the dreams were telling him until they finally rescue her and find she is no longer the same person she was and she has a baby daughter… Maddie’s plane crashed in the jungle and she is taken prisoner by a drug lord who is determined to make her fly the drugs to the drop off points. Maddie was wounded badly and lost her memory so in order to get her to fly again they keep her on drugs and use her daughter as leverage to keep her docile. When Hawk and the Deep six guys find her and take her away she has no recollection of who they are… Can Hawk show her that they were once a strong, connected loving couple and help her get her memories back and become a family with their daughter or will the drug cartel destroy it all?? So much drama, suspense, tension, passion that this book will keep you on the edge of your seat until the last page is read! !

This is book 6 in the Deep Six Security series and it features Maddie Carter and Rhett Hawkins. This book has an AMAZING story line! So much greatness packed into so few words. It’s kind of a second chance romance with a horribly messed up family member and some members of our armed forces that made careless decisions and put Rhett and Maddie through hell. My heart was breaking for them. Colonel Claire Wright was fan-freaking-tastic! When Col. Wright made both her appearances in this book I wanted to jump out of my chair and fist pump the air! Even though there were moments that broke my heart, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I look forward to whatever this author comes out with next.

Hard Landing by Becky McGraw is an amazing read. Ms. McGraw has delivered a well-written book loaded with phenomenal characters. Maddie is an Army pilot when former Army Nightstalker pilot Rhett proposes. She turns him down because she is going to train to become a Nightstalker pilot. Their story is heartbreaking, hopeful, and will anger you enough to cuss. This book has it all, action, suspense, humor, and smoking hot sex. Kudos to Ms. McGraw for working the perfect amount of humor, with just the right touch, into this fantastic story. This is one of those books you just can't put down once you start it. I loved every single page. Hard Landing is book 6 of the Deep Six Security Series but can be read as a standalone. I suggest reading them all though, who wants to miss out on all this deliciousness, right? This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I voluntarily read an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

This is book 6 in the Deep Six Security series. It's not necessary to read the previous books to understand this one however to understand some of the dynamics between characters I would recommend it. This one is about Rhett "Hawk" Hawkins who is the helicopter pilot for Deep Six and Maddie Carter who was his girlfriend who left him behind. We have seen Hawk in previous books and he is usually the happy go lucky guy who likes to crack jokes and flirt with the women. Maddie is also a helicopter pilot but she is still in the Army. Or at least she was until she was declared KIA even though her body was never found. During the funeral something Hawk hears makes him wonder if she was truly killed or if she was taken hostage. Little did he know just how accurate that was or just how much had happened to her in the 6 months of her being held by the cartel. I absolutely loved this book! I had been looking forward to Hawk's book to begin with just because he was such a likable character in the previous books. And right from the start I loved him. Even though he is not sure if Maddie is still alive he at least wants to bring her body home where it belongs. Her brother decides to go with her and his "brother's" at Deep Six won't let him go without extra help, no matter that he doesn't want to drag them into it. It truly showed what family will do for each other. And Maddie, oh my god. Everything she has been through and still goes through, all to protect one thing! She doesn't remember anything about her life before the crash. All she knows is that if she doesn't do what she is told, she will die. And that can't happen. Everything they go through after her rescue? It made me cry at points. Hawk is one of the strongest men I have read in quite some time. And the fact that no matter what he still is there for Maddie. He stands by her side and fights for her every step of the way. Maddie may not remember him or anything from before but it doesn't stop her from falling for him again. And making the sacrifice to ensure that he is safe no matter what. I loved this book from start to finish! And the ending? I absolutely loved how karma came for the ones who deserved it!! I really hope to see a book about her brother!! And of course the other characters we have seen in these books need their own books too!

Excellent!!! I practically inhaled this book. I could not put it down. I had to keep remembering to breathe. More than a romance. More than romantic suspense. The book was full of action, suspense, danger, and intrigue. It covered romance, love, loyalty, friends, family, and rebuilding relationships. If you haven't read the Deep Security series before, you will definitely want to start after reading Hard Landing. I voluntarily read and reviewed the Advance Reader Copy.

WOW!! This was a GREAT story! I loved Maddie and Hawks story!! It was exciting, intense and really pulled at my heartstrings! I was glued to my seat from beginning to end! Out of all the books in this series so far, this is my favorite! I really liked Hawk before but he shows so much more of himself and what is going on with him in this! Him and Maddie are perfect together!!

When you pick up a book by this talented author, you know you are in for a great story. This one might have exceeded that expectation. While most reviewers will give you a summary of the plot, I will take a different road. If you are looking for a sweet, funny story , this is not it. BUT, if you are looking for a story that will touch your heart, that is not only heartbreaking, but also heartwarming, that at times you will not only feel the desolation of the characters, but also their courage and triumphs, then this is the book for you. The author gives us a look of the army that is not always obvious. A reminder that women in combat, especially elite helicopter pilots, are not only a minority , but have to deal with the prejudices of a dominantly male environment. Also, that the valiant men and women who are willing to give their lives to keep us safe , need our support once they return to civil life . They need to be supported and helped not only with any physical injuries but also with those mental and psychological stresses they endured. The author also brings to light that the experiences we have as a child and the love or lack thereof that a parent gives the child, will mold the individual for the rest of theirs lives. It’s a story about devastation, and desolation endured during captivity ,but it’s also hope, and the fact that love and support can help heal the heart, the body and the mind. The main characters , Hawk, and Maddie will stay with you for a long time to come. Kudos to Ms McGraw for another outstanding story. I was gifted a copy of this book. The opinions expressed are solely my own.
