Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Narrator Saskia Maarleveld presents the horror and determination Gina feels as she drags herself through basic training and fights her attraction to team leader Levi ‘Ace’ Butcher. Maarleveld delivers Jina’s low Georgia drawl and Levi’s curt commands with exquisite precision…Narration and story exist in perfect synchronicity…Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“Jina is one truly dogged, gutsy, and determined woman. For much of this book the heroine and hero choose not to act on their intense attraction, but when they do, they unleash a raging passion. Readers will be on the edge of their seats with this one!” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
“A bloody mission, a vengeful traitor, and stunning, vivid descriptions (a desperate slog through the desert and Jina’s parachute jumps are memorable) add grim realism to this absorbing romance. Verdict: A sassy heroine with grit and determination to match and a tough, battle-hardened hero struggle against impossible odds in a heart-pounding adventure that doesn’t let up until the very end.” Library Journal (starred review)
“High-adrenaline action and high-octane passion once again prove to be an irresistible combination in bestselling Howard’s latest addictive suspense novel, featuring a heroine who doesn’t take guff from anyone, a testosterone-rich hero who still manages to be sensitive, and a sassy sense of wit, and you have the literary equivalent of pure gold.” Booklist (starred review)
“Howard delivers an exciting standalone romantic thriller, featuring nuanced characters in extraordinary circumstances who still feel relatable and warm.” Publishers Weekly
