Synopsis: A Tortured Hero with a Heart of Gold
Growing up on the streets of Rio de Janeiro, Javier Almeida has only his older sister to protect him. When she’s sold to a human-trafficker, he vows to hunt down those responsible.

Years later, Titan Group’s Delta team finds him, tattooed and brawling, a vigilante protector with information they want. They take him in and train him, working him harder than a man should be driven, until he’s a soldier harboring an obsession. Ready for revenge, Javier ghosts his way across the globe, tracking the men who took his sister and working elite private security jobs.

Meets Sweet and Sassy

Jilted at the altar, Sophia Cole turns the reception into a one-woman party. She’s intent on devouring all the cake and champagne, so she can bask in the calories she’s been avoiding. In the midst of the revelry, he walks in, the one man she can never ignore.

Javier is her older brother’s black ops teammate—an automatic Do Not Go There. But if there’s one thing better than fondant and a buzz to ease the wounds of a cheating fianc├ę, it might be a one-night stand with a South American military man.

It's a Game Changer

Javier didn’t expect to see Sophia again. He never thought he would even want to see her again. He shouldn’t have touched her, but his mind won’t stay away from her.

Now, Sophia Cole is thousands of miles away from the safety of her parents’ lavish estate and working alongside him in hell. She’s a staffer at an Embassy, and he’s there to keep them alive. There are bombs and bullets and blood-hungry enemies.

And then she’s taken. Gone. Just like his sister. But so much worse.

My Rating: 4 1/2 stars

My Review: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Javier Almeida grew up on the streets of Rio De Janeiro, fighting to survive, while in another country, Sophia Cole is living the life of one of the very wealthy. Fast forward years into the future, and Sophia is left at the altar, but when she comes across her older brother's teammate, she totally goes for that, and it's so much more filling than the cake and champage she was about to consume.
Oh Cristin Harber, how I love thee! With as many military, black ops romances as she has written, and she can always come up with something different than the ones she has written before. The plots are always written to keep the reader involved in the characters and suspense. She always writes female characters that are both relatable and people that you would want to emulate, either in their sassiness, intelligence, or in this case, just plain backbone. Sophia is a fantastic character, yes, she was brought up in a lifestyle that I could only dream of, but she's down to earth enough that she wants to work hard and make something of herself, not just have it given to her.
As usual, Cristin delivers an exceptional plot, and amazing characters, romance and suspense. I can't wait for the next in the series.
