With riveting tension and mesmerizing intrigue, the story swept me away to the exotic Hong Kong and the danger-filled world of the RMM and their fight for justice. Alana Richardson is a clever, capable, and brave heroine who was easy to like and admire. While facing life or death situations she does not freeze or hide away but faces the danger and does everything in her power to escape or rescue the victims, do whatever is needed for survival. She is a daughter of wealthy parents and could be living the easy life of leisure, yet she chooses to cut her own way, make her own path, and turn her back to her parents close-minded and narrow look of life and people around them. Jason Moore won me over from the first scene and as the story progress, I fell for him more and more each moment. His integrity, sincerity, braveness, and willingness to risk his own life to save others, his need to fight for justice and crime in what ever way needed and his honesty about that fight for equity was admirable and commendable. All he wants is to find the woman who will love him for himself and not for his wealth or position in the society. The past has jilted his heart and made it leery, yet the allure of the connection between him and Alana is too powerful to be ignored. The plot is well thought out and the natural flow of the story makes it a book hard to put down until you reach the very satisfying conclusion. I loved how Alana and Jason take time, weeks, to get to know each other, the seduction of minds as powerful as the physical attraction. The danger keeps interfering their lives, the troublesome situations, attacks, and kidnappings, the menace of the Eight Tigers power games, creates bone chilling moments. In midst of the developing romance and escalating violent action, there is an ode to the city of Hong Kong. There is an authentic look at the culture, the people, and the often difficult situation when one is trapped between two cultures, trying to find themselves and their place in the world. I adored this part of the story, it is a genuine, reliable, and true look of the life and living, even the discrimination that a mixed-race person can face. With the well-balanced mix of action and romance, the story was entertaining. With the character development and the turbulent life situations they face, the story was thought-provoking and encouraging. Overall a fascinating and gripping story ~ Four Spoons with a teaspoon on the side

I LOVED this book! I couldn't put it down! I can't wait till the next one in the series! I had been waiting a long time to read Jason's story, ever since his secret black-ops organization rescued Dirk's twin girls. And Alana is kick-a**! She's smart and she's tough; she even wants to train & join his organization. And the chemistry between them is just...wow! I just could NOT put this book down!! I've read ALL of the "Man on a MIssion" books and loved all of them, some more than others. And this was in the top 2 or 3 of my favorites. I recommend this book and all of the books Amelia Autin has written in this series!!

Fantastic book. I don't know how the author does it, but every book surpasses the one before it. I read it in one sitting, staying up well past my bedtime because I couldn't stand to put it down. This one starts with a bang, as Alana has been kidnapped off the streets of Hong Kong by human traffickers. She is bound, gagged and blindfolded, waiting to find out what is going to happen to her, when a masked stranger appears and rescues her. Something in his voice and in his touch tells her she can trust him. I loved both Alana and Jason. Alana is the daughter of a wealthy man, but is desperate to get away from her parents. She can't stand their blatant prejudices and with the help of her cousin Juliana she gets a job working for Dirk DeWinter. She is smart, kind-hearted, loyal to those she cares for, and determined and stubborn when she needs to be. Jason is gorgeous, rich and honorable. He's also a bit jaded when it comes to women, as he never knows whether they want him for himself or his money. He has some bone deep insecurities stemming from experiences he had as a child and teen, ones that have him aching to be loved for himself. He also has a secret life as the leader of a covert organization that brings justice to those who believe they are outside the law. He played a big part in the rescue of Dirk's daughters in A Father's Desperate Rescue. The connection between Alana and Jason is immediate and deep. After the rescue they couldn't stop thinking of each other. Alana didn't know who he was, and I loved the scene where she was trying to pump Mei-Li for information. That connection was evident when they met again and Alana recognized him for who he was. I loved that meeting and how Alana showed Jason the depth of her belief in him and what he does. I loved the development of their relationship. Over the next couple weeks they spend as much time together as they can. I enjoyed their encounters and loved seeing them slowly get to know each other. There are some really emotional scenes where they share bits and pieces of their pasts, things that have made them the people they are. But Jason's insecurities have led him to keep the full truth of who he is from Alana, which occasionally makes things a little awkward for him. It was fun to see her worry about him spending money on her and him squirming because she doesn't need to. The intensity of their feelings for each other continues to grow, but just when it looks like their happiness will be complete, a major obstacle rears its head. This is something that Jason feels very strongly about, driven by his own experiences. Alana is on the other side of the issue, feeling just as strongly, and for a very good reason. I cried for them both as it drove a wedge between them. Some time apart reminds them of the depth of their feelings, but the way forward is still in doubt. It is here that Alana's stubborn determination really comes in handy as she refuses to accept Jason's reasoning. The ending is awesome, with Alana standing up to her father, and Jason finally seeing the truth behind his fears. Their big moment at the end was sweet, romantic and so deeply emotional I cried again. Throughout the book is the ongoing battle with the Eight Tigers, the group behind the kidnappings and other crimes. Jason's group, RMM, has been working to shut them down. There are occasional glimpses into their actions from the criminals' point of view, and an increasing intensity as the action heats up. Alana
