They say love is a battlefield…
My family’s ties to a certain set of crime lords are more tangled and volatile than the wires in an IED. They’ve called on me to disarm a situation ready to explode, but in spite of all my training, I’m not sure any of us are getting out of this unscathed.
That’s especially true when I find out the black-ops mission I’ve signed up for is commanded by none other than Sadie Watts, the girl who left me in the dust so many years ago I should be over it. But I’m not, and seeing her again, especially in such close quarters, is a distraction I can’t afford.
I know what I’m out here fighting for—my brothers; my sister; the USA—but as we close in on our target, I start to wonder if it’s not her I’m fighting for too.
How can this already be the last one of the series? I don’t want it to end!! Because the Santos family has gotten under my skin,burrowed deep into my heart,and i want them to stay there!! Ophelia Bell was so very generous,giving me all of their stories,and only asking for an honest review in return. Marco has made mistakes in his life,but the one that he made with the girlfriend of his ex-best friend is the one that keeps him second-guessing himself. Knowing his brothers,ánd his baby sister!, are having multiple lovers,doesn’t make it any easier…. His SEAL buddy Jake is much more relaxed in what he wants….and that’s who-ever he likes. Sadie,his female buddy from EOD,is into women….right? Fact is,they lost sight of her when she ghosted them during SEAL training,and haven’t seen her since. Until Marco and Jake quit the SEALS to take to join the team tasked with taking down Amador…. Finding out exactly what they’re supposed to do takes a little time for Marco to accept. Getting hot and heavy with Sadie is one thing,but adding Jake to the mix? Even knowing he’s into him? Funny thing is,though…thinking about it makes him want it. And once he allows himself to give into his desires,it gets easier,só much easier. Finding what Amador’s interested in,adding him to the mix,isn’t as difficult as he thought it would be. The man is not what they thought he was,in fact he turns out to be a target they’re not sure they want to take down anymore. But the real enemy is still out there,and he’s determined to get what he wants,in any way he can…. Sadie always considered herself gay and Kat was her girl,but if she wasn’t, Marco would be the man she’d want. Leaving SEAL training was tough,but the reason why broke her heart. Meeting up with Marco and Jake years later,even with the reason why,felt like a second chance to make thing right. Catching up with Marco felt natural,and sharing their painful pasts cleared the air between them in more ways than one. Convincing him to add Jake to the mix wasn’t as difficult as she expected, and the three of them quickly found a dynamic that worked. Adding Amador to the mix,once he took the bait,had unexpected consequences. But with the real enemy putting his plans in motion,things went bad quick! Would they be able to beat him at his own game,or was this the end of the road? This really was the grand finale,and everything fell into place the way i was hoping it would. But not before i was put through the wringer with everything that went wrong. Even though they all did their best to get me hot and bothered when they got véry close and personal… I loved seeing the other family members coming to their aid when they needed them the most. And i really love who everyone ended up with….even if it means saying goodbye.
