What an action packed thrilling read this proved to be! It is filled with quandaries, mysteries and threats, most of which are from unknown sources. Ryder has been in a secret military group, experimented on to create a fearless fighter and member of the group known as Team Fear. Suddenly the experiments and missions cease. Following the group’s medical discharge something is happening to individuals, something Ryder fears will happen to himself, too. After trying to save one of his team involved in an armed standoff with the police, he discovers the man’s wife and child have been horrendously killed just before the blood covered team mate commits suicide, shooting himself in front of Ryder. Fearing he too may become as dysfunctional and because he truly loves his wife, Lauren, without explaining to her, he disappears from her life trying to protect her from himself but leaving her vulnerable to the machinations of others and unknowingly placing her in greater danger. When he returns to check up on her, the action hots up in every sense of the term! She is intelligent, feisty and devastated by his disappearance and the loss of their home, struggling to continue her studies whilst working two jobs. Can she trust him to remain? Dare she? With kidnapping, murder, attempted murder, fraud and so much more this is a fast paced, gritty thriller, a real page turner that keeps you enthralled. The characters are well developed, their dialogue believable and, at times, just so realistic that it is funny. The plot is so full of twists and turns it makes the journey a roller coaster that you’re riding blindfolded, not able to see just what’s coming round the next corner. This is the first in a new series and I can’t wait to read the sequel! Many thanks to the publishers for gifting me an ARC of the novel in exchange for my honest review.

Ryder was part of an elite military team that had been experimented on. When one of his team mates commits an atrocity, Ryder realizes it is only time before he too could snap, forcing him to leave his wife Lauren. When he returns six months later to officially let her go, he realizes that she is in serious trouble and only he can help her. I was instantly engaged with this story, right from the first chapter when Ryder walks into a hostage situation regardless of the consequences. The book grabbed me and never let me go. I love a good romantic suspense, and that was just what this was. I also appreciated that there was not over the top sexual encounters (sure a few hot moment’s here and there but not super graphic). Most of the story dealt with the emotional turmoil between the characters mixed with near dangerous situations and investigations. There was never a dull moment in the plot and I found myself losing track of time as I read. I liked that the book did not have to introduce the characters to each other, it started with them already married but estranged. They already knew what the other liked and had ideally planned to spend their lives together. The book alternated randomly between Lauren and Ryder’s narration, which I love in a romance so that both sides are understood (by me, not necessarily each other). I really liked both characters. Lauren was feisty and refused to be a victim, an interesting mix of book smarts and spunky personality. Ryder had that tall, dark protector thing going on, but he liked that Lauren could defend herself and bragged about how smart she was. The dynamic between them was at times heartbreaking because of all the turmoil, emotional baggage and secrets between them. I rooted for Ryder to save the day and win back Lauren (for realsies this time) and would love to read more by this author. The other team members were introduced and I can't wait for their stories as well as the underlying mystery of who is behind everything.

This is an action-packed, steamy suspense featuring a husband and wife. This puts a new twist on the romance, but trust me, it makes it no less thrilling. You learn the backstory slowly which enhances the whole feeling of it, whilst learning the current situation and characters. I won't go into the story itself, after all, that's what the synopsis is for. However, I will say that there is not a single dull moment in this story. It is full of twists, turns, suspense, intrigue and steam! Ryder and Lauren have a lot to deal with, but they are full of spit and sass and are fully capable of dealing with whatever is thrown at them, with one exception. A wonderful read with no editing or grammatical errors to distract from the story, this story is absolutely believable and I really can't wait to learn more about Team Fear! I'm really hoping that Rosie and Debi have their own story! Definitely recommended. Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
