Claudia McCoy has been told what she can't do enough for one lifetime. After a near-fatal childhood battle with juvenile diabetes and having to accept that her dreams of serving in the military would never come true, she's thrilled to begin a life on her own terms.
Yet, when she finally starts her career in the FBI, Claudia is furious that her condition and overbearing big brother, Wyatt, have both once again interfered with her ability to have the life she truly wants. Now derailed from her high-profile aspirations of a position in the FBI's D.C. headquarters, she is instead planted far away from the real action, and practically right in her brother's Pittsburgh backyard.
Trey Adler is known for fixing things, but he's broken just as many — leaving him with regrets that never go away.
He'd be the first to agree he should stay away from a nice girl like Claudia, but he can't deny his friend Jenna Sutherland's request when she asks him to use his position as a temporary FBI consultant to keep Claudia safe — especially as it's clear this little firecracker needs protecting.
Far away from all the action she so craves, Claudia is more determined than ever to prove herself in her first major investigation at whatever cost — and those costs are proving to be dangerously high. Their battle of wills turns quickly into a powerful need for one other, making them both rethink everything they ever wanted.
Will Trey be able to keep her alive long enough to give them an opportunity at something real together — a future that can survive the danger in their present, as well as the darkness of
I literally couldn't wait to get my hands on this book and read it. So I was so happy I got the chance to review it. This is one of those series I have been addicted to ever since I read the first book that brought me to tears. I will admit that I missed out on reading the novella and still haven't read it yet. I will say this though you can read these books as stand alones. I don't think you'd be to confused. But you may want to read them in order to get a better understanding of what's going on. And the dynamics of everyone's relationships.
We finally get to have Trey and Claudia's book. I feel like I've been waiting forever to get to this book. We meet Trey in Tea and Griffin's book. And than got to meet Claudia in Jenna and Wyatt's book.
I have to say I was really happy Trey was getting his own book. Even though we got to meet and see him in the previous books. He was still that kind of dark and mysterious person. The one you really want to get to know better and find out more about. I really liked getting to know Trey better and finding out who he was.
I really liked Claudia in this book. At the beginning I was a little afraid I wasn't going to like her, she kind of annoyed me at the beginning. But I found as the book went on I started liking her more.
I really enjoyed this book and liked how it seemed to pick up. It was nice seeing familiar other characters from the series.
I'm giving this book 4.5 stars out of 5!!!!
