I love this series! Garrett is my favorite so far! He seems like a grumpy, tough guy but he isn't especially when the women are around!!! Again, Harry Berkeley is the PERFECT narrator for this series!!
I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)
This was a really good story. I really liked Garrett and Sarah and enjoyed their story. This was a very good addition to the series and it's my fave so far.
Sarah is a sweet woman that hasn't had things easy most of her life. Recently, her half-brother, Marcus, found out that her ex-boss raped her and he murdered the man. Sarah tried to stop him but when she can't, she goes on the run to trying to protect herself and Marcus from the backlash of the murder. The problem is that Marcus is a very bad man that's wanted by many people for much worse things than murder (and she doesn't realize this because he keeps his business far from her) so when others find out about their connection, Sarah becomes a target.
Garrett is one of the Kelly brothers that run KGI (Kelly Group International), a private company that performs Ops like hostage/kidnap victim recovery & intelligence gathering among other things. He's ex-military and a good guy that loves his family and protects the people he loves. He's contacted by the CIA when they find that Marcus (who is an enemy of Garrett's since Marcus turned traitor and got many of Garret's team killed during a mission) has a sister they may be able to use to find Marcus. Garret agrees to go shadow Sarah to see if Marcus shows up. Garrett certainly isn't expecting Sarah to make such an impact on him.
Even though her rape took place a year ago, Sarah has a hard time trusting men around her. When she first meets Garrett, she's kind of freaked by him (he's so big and strong and could cause her damage) but yet she feels the first niggling of attraction to a man that she's had since the rape. She finds him interesting and watches him out the window of her beach cottage frequently. Garret, while attracted to Sarah, recognizes that she's very skittish and seems to have suffered a past trauma. Due to this he goes very slowly with Sarah, first becoming friends and getting her trust. As they become friends, Garrett realizes pretty quickly that his feelings for Sarah are very possessive and he's getting in to the whole "mine" mindset with Sarah. He decides to keep her safe, keep an eye out for Marcus and try to get through this in a way that he'll be able to keep Sarah in his life afterwards. This becomes harder than he expected when Sarah gets spooked by a possible intruder in her cottage and escapes with hardly a trace. Garrett is forced to regroup and try to locate where Sarah went to.
Sarah ends up in Mexico but Garrett is able to track her down. When he comes back in to her life he can't act like he's just run in to her again by chance so he tells her that Marcus sent him to keep her safe. Sarah is relieved when Garrett walks back in to her life. He was the first man she started trusting again and felt an attraction to in a while so she was sad he wasn't around any more. When he tells her he was sent to protect her, she agrees to go with him to a safer place. While on the move, they run in to some major issues and they're both taken captive by some bad guys. They escape (with some help from KGI) but while in the situation, Garrett and Sarah become even closer emotionally and also physically close as they rely on each other and bond even more. When they get out of the situation, Garrett and Sarah get even closer and share some tender moments. Just when Garrett is getting ready to tell Sarah the truth about everything, all hell breaks loose and Sarah ends up finding out the truth but in a very bad way. Thinking that Garrett doesn't return her feelings and that he just used her, Sarah is crushed and doesn't want anything to do with Garrett. Garrett is forced to go after Sarah and do some quick talking to convince her that his feelings for her are true. Garrett does a very good job though and is able to get Sarah to believe he loves her and to give them a chance, leading in to a nice, satisfying HEA.
This was a really good book. I loved Garrett and Sarah together and their story was well done, a perfect mix of romance and action/suspense. The story was interesting and engaging and I didn't want to stop until I was done. I'd recommend this book. 2 thumbs up! :D
