Publisher's Summary

A woman on a mission.

Phoebe Graham is a specialist in deep cover espionage, infiltrating the enemy, observing their practices, and when necessary, eliminating the threat. Her latest assignment is McKay-Taggart Security Services, staffed with former military and intelligence operatives. They routinely perform clandestine operations all over the world, but it isn't until Jesse Murdoch joins the team that her radar starts spinning. Unfortunately, so does her head. He's gorgeous and sweet and her instincts tell her to trust him but she's been burned before, so he'll stay where he belongs - squarely in her sights.

A man on the run.

Since the moment his army unit was captured by jihadists, Jesse's life has been a nightmare. Forced to watch as those monsters tortured and killed his friends, something inside him snapped. When he's finally rescued, everyone has the same question - why did he alone survive? Clouded in accusations and haunted by the faces of those he failed, Jesse struggles in civilian life until McKay-Taggart takes him in. Spending time with Phoebe, the shy and beautiful accountant, makes him feel human for the first time in forever. If someone so innocent and sweet could accept him, maybe he could truly be redeemed.

A love they never expected.

When Phoebe receives the order to eliminate Jesse, she must choose between the job she's dedicated her life to and the man who's stolen her heart. Choosing Jesse would mean abandoning everything she believes in, and it might mean sharing his fate because a shadowy killer is dedicated to finishing the job started in Iraq.

You may only love twice but you only need to listen once

Talk about a book droning on and on. I thought it would never end.
For whatever reason this book wasn’t as good as the ones before it. The “h” went on and on about her situation to the point of torture. Yes torture!
This isn’t worth a credit and I am grateful it was part of the Romance package.
Stars = 3.5

Fantastic series and audio book

This series has me completely losing a lot of sleep because it is so hard to put down. Jesse was tortured and never expects to find love. When he does old demons come to try to ruin everything for him.

FREAKING LOVED, LOVED, LOVED IT!

I freaking loved this book so much. I think this is the best book in the whole series, but then I say that about everyone of them. I just love Jessie so much. I can't believe that Phoebe fooled everyone but I knew something was up with her. Gosh, I just love Ian and the whole gang of McKay/Taggart. Start with book 1, you won't be disappointed. This book have some funny moments. Ryan West does a fabulous job with narration.

Narration is Great....Phoebe Isn't

I am giving this book 4 stars. I decided while listening to it that was was not going to hold my dislike of Phoebe against the book.

I liked EVERYBODY, (with the exception of the bad guys), but Phoebe. Even the bad guys were written so well that there was no hesitation in disliking them. I got so tired of her referring to herself as married long after her husband was dead. I got tired of her keeping the truth from Jesse. I was just tired of her.

I did like the way Jesse went from being an idiot grunt to exhibiting some thoughtfulness and intelligence. The last book had Jesse being almost robotic. I couldn't understand them letting him into Sanctum if he wasn't somewhat high functioning.

As usual, the gang was all there with a few additions from Ten's team. The beginning of this book to the end was a rollercoaster ride. This group couldn't even manage a calm, controlled baby shower.

I thought the weakest part of the book was Jesse and Phoebe's relationship. I liked Jesse, but I could not connect with Phoebe at all, and did not get a sense of chemistry between the two. I know it was written, but it was not "felt" by me.

I still wish we would get a little more of the couple being together in their own book after all of the drama ends. The next book does show them being a couple, so I guess we have to live with that. Lol.

On to Ten's book!

Love Jesse...

Good story... perfect narration by Ryan West. Worth listening to. I especially enjoy all the previous characters who make their appearances. Ian is so funny. I'm so enjoying this ride through the Masters and Mercenaries. Loving the series... highly recommended.

Enjoy!

The plot thickens.

love, love, love this series!!

This is a brilliant series and I can't wait for the remaining books to be loaded onto Audible. Listen to them in order and I swear you will not be disappointed! The characters are incredible and really do feel like you know them...perhaps not as friends because I'm not cool enough for this group but please load the rest of the books!!!

these just keep getting better!!

I am totally in love with these storys!! the banter, sarcasm and attitude between the characters is hilarious!!!
The characters are written with such depth that you cant help fall in love with them, the family that they create between each other is beautiful to behold and heart warming!!
However dont think its all mush - there is plenty of thrills and action and more twists and turns than you can count!! intruiging thrilling and at times totally horrifying! oh and dont forget the sex, lots and lots of naughty dirty sex!!!
This is an all round brilliant read and will give you everything you possibly could want for hours of perfect escapism!!

Wow

Jesse is such a gentle and forgiving giant looking for a DNA history family. Phoebe who has had one love doesn't believe you can have two in life. Together in this mission they find what they are looking for and love can happen twice. Along with the gang and Big Tags humor, another awesome read. Also Ryan West’s narrative is superb.
