Publisher's Summary

After being wounded in action, NSA agent Nathan Ortiz comes home to Miami, eager to return to duty. But he doesn't expect his newest mission to lead him straight to the one woman he loved, lost, and has never gotten over.

A beautiful, successful restaurateur, Amelia Rios enjoys giving back to her community, especially to struggling women. Then a woman she recently hired stops showing up for work, and, unfortunately, she isn't the first to go missing.

Soon Amelia finds herself thrust into a shadowy, dark world, working side by side with Nathan, the only man she's ever loved. They must confront old feelings as they battle a ruthless enemy preying on the poor and weak. The heat simmering between Nathan and Amelia could mean a second chance for them-but first they have to survive.

Contains mature themes.

Misunderstandings and lack of communication

This story would have been better if there were fewer misunderstandings and more communications between the main characters. Narrator was OK. Not my favorite from this author.

Very interesting story.

Sophie Eastlake is an excellent narrator. Looking forward to another book in the series. Her narration of the characters and the hotness of the alpha male Nathan held my interest. She really does the male characters very well.

Another engaging story by Ms Reus

Whether you are new to this series and/or Ms Reus’s stories, or a longtime fan, you are in for another rollercoaster ride of actions and emotions.
In this one we have Nathan Ortiz, an undercover NSA agent who recently got injured on the job. He has recovered and is now back in his hometown of Miami to undertake a new mission. A mission that takes him to the girl he loved as a teenager, and has not forgotten even though she hurt him when she left him.
Amelia Rios is now a successful restaurant owner, but she hasn’t forgotten Nathan, nor the secret she kept from him and the reason she left him.
Now she seems to be a key factor in women that are going missing . As the plot thickens, so does the reignited relationship develops. Secrets must be divulged, trust must be earned , traffickers found, and women must be saved. But in the midst of this turmoil , will Nathan and Amelia find each other again and if they do, will they have a future?
Aside from an engaging plot, and complex characters, I commend the author for highlighting the fact that human trafficking exists in a variety of forms. We all need to be aware of this and do what we can to help stop this atrocity. A very sensitive subject matter in which the author did an outstanding job in presenting to the listener.
The narrator , Sophie Eastlake, did an excellent job in this performance.
I was gifted this audiobook. The opinions expressed are solely my own.

An All Right Story.

Sophie does an amazing job reading this book. However, I the story is still not my favorite. The heroine drove me nuts still. I read the book first, and I thought I like a little more in audio form; nope. Still a three star story.

Great Book!

Any additional comments?

This is a great book; this is the fifth book in the Deadly Ops Series by Katie Reus and narrated by Sophie Eastlake. Nathan Ortiz is an NSA agent, after being wounded in action he is eager to return to duty. What he isn’t expecting is for his mission to lead him to the woman he has never gotten over. Amelia Rios is a successful restaurateur and enjoys working in her community to help struggling women. When she finds herself in trouble she is not expecting to get help from her lost love Nathan. If you are looking for a great romance with suspense then you need to read this book. I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series.

The narrator Sophie Eastlake did a wonderful job, and was very easy to listen too. She did a great job with the different characters and their voices.

If you are looking for a great book, then you need to read this book. I can’t wait to read the next book by this author. Once I started listening to this book, I didn’t want to stop until the end.
