Security Forces Lieutenant Maya Lopez is right at home in a war zone: she's been fighting all her life. A hard-won commission in the air force has brought her to Afghanistan, and if she plays her cards right, she could end up with an FBI job. It won't be easy, but that just makes her more determined.
Jackson Thatcher is a protector in all senses of the word. A pararescue jumper with Southern-boy charm, he easily captures Maya's interest, but her trust is another story. He's sexy, strong and caring, but she makes it clear she's no damsel in distress. She's never relied on any man, and she's not about to start now.
When Maya and Jackson become pawns in a radical warlord's deadly game, they find themselves on the run and must depend on each other if they want to make it out alive.

Use books for escape- typically avoid nonfiction. Enjoy action-romance, espionage/military, sci-fi. Skilled writing is most important.
A security forces lieutenant with the air force is in Afghanistan where she meets an attractive pararescue jumper. The author uses the excuse of her tragic childhood for the reason she is strong, determined, and competent. (Why can't a heroine be strong just because it is in her nature to be so?) The best aspects of this story are not around the romance, but rather, concerning the tragedy of war. Some satisfying action. Warning - there is a significant portion of the plot involving torture, which might be tough for some to hear. The love story is also satisfying, but not unique.
I am not certain whether the writing is a bit choppy or if it seemed as though it was because the performance is poor. Inconsistent accents, stiff reading, and monotones were distracting - very inexperienced reader.
Overall, not a waste, but reader is disappointing.
