My thoughts: I give it ♥♥. I follow this author’s books and I could easily relate who Zane was & how he is related to the previous series. It just felt like a foolish reason (which is mentioned in the end) for Micah not knowing the whole mission & on top of that sending his trusted brother-in-arms on it. The whole confusion in the second half just felt a bit dramatic.
Overall, I almost did not finish this book. but I’m a fan of Annabella’s books and thought this would get better! Sadly disappointed.
As a former USAF pararescueman, Jeremy O’Brien is used to following orders, no questions asked. So, when Micah, his boss at Hamilton Security, asks him to take on a special case, he readily accepts. Micah’s instructions are simple, find the man in the picture and bring him back to Chicago.
Seven years ago, Zane Wilkinson left the hospital against doctor’s orders, only to suffer a final, devastating blow that left him with no choice but to leave the only place he’d called home. Feeling heartbroken and empty, Zane moved from town to town just trying to survive, while never letting anyone get too close.
In a chance encounter, Jeremy finds himself crossing paths with a man who fits Zane’s description. His instincts tell him that he’s on to something, but Micah warns him that he needs to be absolutely sure. Jeremy sets a plan in motion that will allow him to get closer to the man he believes to be Zane. However, the closer he gets, the more he likes the man and begins to question why he was sent to find him.
Will Jeremy be able to follow through with his orders without becoming too attached? Or will he realize that in his search for Zane, he’s found so much more than he bargained for?
