Publication date: October 22nd 2019
Genres: Adult, Adventure, Romance
When April Linus discovers she’s pregnant, the pampered hotel heiress walks away from her trust fund to protect her child and the identity of her baby daddy from her criminal father. But single motherhood isn’t easy. Keeping her secrets stowed away tightly, she navigates through some rough seas alone and manages to build a new life for herself. Now, two men from her past are back in Key West wanting to rock the boat…
One wants to rekindle their high school romance.
The other wants to put her father in prison.
Black Ops operative Jonas Ostergaard made a nearly fatal mistake four years ago. He let April distract him from his mission. After working his way into her father’s circle of trust, Jonas was yanked off the job by his superiors and reassigned. Now he’s back to finish what he started, even if that means having to work up close and personal with the one woman who has the power to bring him to his knees.
When Jonas persuades April to help him stop her father from selling a dangerous new technology to a corrupt foreign government, they end up on the run dodging arms dealers in the steamy Amazon rain forest. They quickly learn that together, they can fight anything except for their smoldering attraction to each other.
But April starts to wonder what kind of relationship she could have with a man who may have more secrets that she has. Jonas disappeared on her once, what’s to stop him from doing it again?
One thing she knows for certain, none of it will matter if they don’t get out of the jungle alive.
It seems as though the guys in this family struggle with alpha male a-hole syndrome. I don’t mind it – it works well in context.
The real surprise in this story was April. She was a treat – and her interactions with Jonas make me want so much more for her.
The author has done another great job with a fast paced, character driven tale. The entire cast kind of mesh together in a way that makes the whole story feel much more solid, and encompassing.
Tense and full of betrayals at every turn, this really is the action packed conclusion that this trilogy needed.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
