FBI Special Agent Lynda Culter is investigating an ecoterrorist organization in the Alaskan wilderness when her partner is taken captive and murdered before her very eyes. The only person who can identify the key players, Lynda gets assigned to take part in a joint operation in Istanbul to take the organization down.
As a woman in a Muslim country, she’ll find it much easier to move around undetected with a fake husband. Unfortunately for her, the man assigned to play the role is none other than US Army weapons specialist Bill Sanders–the man who crushed her heart into a million pieces back in college.
With a cargo bay’s worth of hurt and baggage between them, these two consummate professionals must play their parts perfectly if they hope to stop those responsible for bombing oil pipelines, killing innocent civilians, and threatening to destabilize the oil markets. But love long buried has a way of resurfacing at the most inopportune times–and protecting Lynda has become Bill’s primary focus.
Can I just start with WOW?! I didn’t think it was possible for me to like a book more than I did book 1, but Hallee Bridgeman managed to make my jaw drop yet again. And this second chance romance is now my absolute favorite. I hoped Bill would get his own story, and boy was I excited to see that happen. The book opens with such a powerful scene that I knew right away I was in for a wild night of binge-reading. Bill and Lynda’s past history is a sore spot between them, and I enjoyed how the author showed that even while keeping the pace and tension of the ecoterrorist plot. Bill’s ability to focus is sorely tested, and having him face his fears with Lynda was perfection. I adore a good second chance romance, and this one is now the one to beat. I received a copy of this book from RevellReads. I was not required to leave a positive review. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.
