Having survived a brutal childhood, Sabrina Fox believed she could handle anything. That was before she watched the love of her life die before her very eyes. Brokenhearted, her emotions on lockdown, she finds purpose and hope as an LCR elite operative rescuing victims from some of the most volatile places in the world.
As a covert ops agent, Declan Steele was used to a life of danger and distrust, but when the one person he trusted and believed in above all others sets him up, he’ll stop at nothing to make her pay. Finally rescued from his hellish prison, Declan has one priority—hunt down Sabrina Fox and exact his revenge.
Trusting no one is a lonely, perilous path. Sabrina swears she’s innocent and Declan must make a decision--trust his heart or his head. As memories of their life together returns, he realizes just how treacherous his torture had been and the target of his revenge shifts. But when Sabrina is taken, retribution is the last thing on his mind. With the assistance of Last Chance Rescue Elite, Declan races to rescue the only woman he has ever loved before it’s too late.

Felt a little too similar to one of the LCR stories I must have read, to the point where I actually flipped the pages and wondered at the deja vu that I kept having. Still, an interesting start to the new series, although I would have preferred to have read the beginnings of Sabrina and Declan (that’s merely reconstructed in bits and pieces) more than the actual story, which sagged painfully in the middle. I did appreciate the tension between other characters though (the strange Justin/Riley vibe got to me) and for that, I’d continue down this road…for a little bit more.
