Chloe Mason can't remember much about her childhood, except for being in and out of hospitals. Now healthy and all grown up, she's determined to fill the gaping hole that was her past. When she finds her long lost brother, Harry, she discovers family and something else that was missing from her life. Love. As a child, Mike Keillor helplessly watched as his parents were massacred. Vowing to never again be vulnerable, he joined the Marines and became a Recon sniper, SWAT officer, and an expert in martial arts, before establishing his own successful security company. When his friend and partner Harry reconnects with his long lost sister, Chloe, the hard-as-nails Mike is felled by the one thing he can't fight. Love. But their future is jeopardized when Chloe accidentally steps into the path of the Russian mob. Though his adversary is way bigger than he is, nothing can stop Mike from saving the woman who has captured his heart. He lost his family, and he will not lose Chloe. Failure is not an option.

When I purchased this I thought this would be an action/romance; however, What I discovered is that the author spends to much time describing the feelings of the characters and that, in turn, makes the story move entirely too slow. The reader gets that the primary female character has overcome severe trauma and that she doesn't function well from a physical or emotional standpoint. No need to keep repeating it over and over and over.
The narrator is not that great either.
When the first few chapters produced no action, I finally stopped listening - probably one of three books on which I have really wasted my money.
Say something about yourself!
Yes to anyone interested in a little bit of suspense, a little bit of romance and a little bit of violence.
Mike. From tragedy to redemption, Mike finds his mate.
Less violence than book 2 in the series.
