A shocking attack in Ankara leaves the US Ambassador to Turkey dead and his chief of staff, Amanda Allen, in the hands of brutal terrorists. But Allen is no ordinary diplomat. She’s undercover CIA. The DNI and the President turn to Ember, America’s premier black-ops task force, and its deadliest weapon, former Tier One Navy SEAL John Dempsey, for help. To find Allen, Ember gets embedded in the most dangerous battlefield on Earth: Syria. But when all communications are disabled by an attack in Turkey, Dempsey finds himself with no backup.

I’m not a sentimental man, but even I have to admit life is starting to look suspiciously like my wildest dreams. I’ve got the woman I love in my arms and the world at my feet. So when a seemingly easy consult in DC comes up, I’m happy for an excuse to stay close to home and savor the good life. But looks can be deceiving. What seemed like an in-and-out job covers up a much darker secret that rocks the entire International Guy team to our cores. Luckily, we have the help of one of DC’s savviest political consultants to guide us.

Can I just say that I HATE HAVING TO WAIT FOR EACH BOOK!😢

O. K. Now that I got that out of my system l would just like to say WOW😮. Audrey Carlin does it again with a great story featuring Skye and Parker. This story exposes some demoralizing behavior of people who would exploit the environment. They also exploit animals for personal gain. It gets quite descriptive in parts so reader beware.

If I could I’d give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.

Each day I prayed for my husband to love me again. After 15 years together, he walked away from me, and into the arms of another. I didn’t know how to cope. I didn’t know my worth. I didn’t know how to exist without him by my side. All I wanted was for him to come back to me. Then, Jackson Emery appeared. He was supposed to be a distraction for my mind. A summer fling. A confidence boost to my bruised heart. We were perfect for one another, because we both knew we wouldn’t last. Jackson didn’t believe in commitment, and I no longer believed in love.

This is a MUST READ ROMANCE. I love the fact that this story is about ordinary people trying to deal with live and death. Heartache and tragedy. Love and hate. It shows that compassion, kindness and love can help heal a broken heart.
NARRATION was AWESOME!

Maddox - The reason I rarely go home is three simple words: I'm a liar. When the pressure to marry my childhood sweetheart became too much, I told her I was gay and then fled to New York like my ass was on fire. Now, five years later and after a drunken encounter, I find myself invited to her wedding. And I have to bring my boyfriend-the boyfriend who doesn't exist because I'm straight. At least, I think I am. Meeting the guy I'm bribing to be my boyfriend for the weekend makes me question everything about myself.

I crawled into Ryan Jensen’s bed that first night by accident. I barely knew him. I thought it was his sister’s bed - her room. It took seconds to realize my error, and I should've left... I didn’t. I didn’t jump out. I didn’t get embarrassed. I relaxed. And that night, in that moment, it was the only thing I craved. I asked to stay. He let me, and I slept. The truth? I never wanted to leave his bed. If I could've stayed forever, I would have. He became my sanctuary. Because - four hours earlier - my twin sister killed herself.

If I could, I would give this book TEN STARS ✨! I was GLUED to Mackenzie’s story. MACKENZIE is a BROKEN, LOVING, WEAK, STRONG, UNCERTAIN, AND KNOWING!
She is the type of HEROINE YOU ROOT FOR.
This is an ABSOLUTE MUST READ.
The author deals with suicide, family drama, and school drama in such a REALISTIC and RESPECTFUL way. I love 💕 that she made MACKENZIE STRONG through her GRIEF. I also LOVED 💕RYAN.

I really love THE LAST RIDERS series. This story was good except for some kinda important plot holes
1. If Viper really was so atteacted to Winter why not have sex with her instead of the club whores? I know he said he wanted her to see the real him but SERIOUSLY?
2. When Winter tells the club what she overheard from two members of the club (I won’t spoil it) Viper gets mad at her and not the two members that said it PRETTY MUCH TRASH TALKING WINTER
3. I HATE THAT THE CLUB TRIES TO MAKE Winter FEEL LIKE SHE OWES THEM BECAUSE THEY DID SO MUCH TO HELP WHEN SHE
NEVER

Beware of what you wish for; it might just come true. Train swore never to let a woman get under his skin unless it meant forever, and forever only meant belonging to the Last Riders. He had believed his one brief sexual encounter with Killyama was a "hit it and quit it". Instead her green eyes haunted his memories.
