2.0 out of 5 starsVery Disjointed
Reviewed in the United States on August 20, 2017
Don't know quite where to start. Surprised at first chapters but storyline was ok. Then with abrupt end a new plot begins, you finally in this new plot think u know where u r. Took along time for second plot to evolve into the actual mission. Then without finishing this plot, leaving them in the cave and their rescue, the author again makes an abrupt move to placing the characters at Ali's home waiting for Cara to finish debriefing. Pages and pages of telling us over and over about Ram's background, young life and troubles. Then again the author abruptively ends the book. Was definitely not a great love story. It is the most chopped up story and over played plot about this soldier and his ability to interact that I have ever read. By far NOT the authors best. Probably worst.
1.0 out of 5 starsShame on a former favorite author!

I am only 40% thru this book and too angry to continue. I am not unsympathetic to established authors who self-publish for more control and bucks. BUT they owe it to their loyal followers to maintain the quality in little things like editing and continuity. There are glaring verb tense errors. There is a mangled sentence where she was obviously going insert a number from research and didn't. But the worst was finishing a chapter in the SEALs in Asia, and starting a new chapter with the herone running from a drug lord in North America and refering to her CIA handler. HUH? Keep going and you finally find out the book skipped three years, a job change, a kidnapping and a few other minor things with no warning. Did the author move a flashback up front without transition? Did she decide to take the book a different direction? Danged if I know. But it is sloppy for a newbie and unforgivable for a writer of Lindsay/Eileen's experience at full price. I'll read your Harlequins but I am done with Delos.
Confusing transitions. We know from previous Delos books, Wyatt Lockwood is married to Alexis and in charge of tactical Delos project. Ali is out of the military and working for the CIA. Then they're both working for Delos and resucueing Ali' sister! Very poor transitions, The action went from the cave to being all accomplished. Needs more fleshing out.but after reading other Delos books, could cope! Again, military scenes very well done. A little too much dialogue, but in the end does come together. Ram's personality is very well developed. Looking forward to next book as usual. Frustrating since e-books are pushed and I enjoy holding paperbacks! .
5.0 out of 5 starsAction packed and suspense-filled

I really enjoyed reading Ram and Ali’s story so far. Both are strong, intelligent, resilient people—true professionals and the best of the best. They have a fractured relationship, largely due to Ram’s past. But he’s changing and learning to manage his baggage. When Ali needs his help, he’s right there—willingly to support and protect her while completing the mission. Then things change between them, but to find out how, you’ll need to read the sequel.
Again Lindsay has taken an aspect of life that most of us only read or hear about in the news. It brings to life the dangers of trying to rescue those taken by sex-traders and other equally low life. Ali has to face the person she thought ever cared, never trusted anyone. Maybe she has to look inward and see if there have been times that she has not trusted. After rescuing her sister they are faced with the daunting task of helping her regain her life.
