A loss he can’t forget
Since losing his twin brother, Theo, in the line of duty, Case Taggart has felt dead inside. The former Navy SEAL has dedicated himself to his family and their business but he can’t help but feel stuck as he watches everyone else move on with their lives. Only meeting the beautiful Mia brings Case out of his misery, until he discovered she was just a reporter looking for a story. Betrayed, he turned his back on her and never looked back.
An attraction she can’t deny.
Mia Danvers can’t get Case Taggart out of her head. Though they hadn’t been lovers, she’d felt more for him than for any man she’d ever met. Growing up in the shadow of her over-protective, older brothers, she felt free when she was with Case and she longs to feel that way again. She knows that if she can find any trace of Theo Taggart, Case will be forced to let her back into his life. Months of searching have finally paid off and she knows this is her second chance.
A desperate search
Case and Mia follow the clues they hope will lead them to Theo and the villainous Hope McDonald, but the search becomes increasingly dangerous. From Dallas to South America and beyond, dark forces work against them and threaten their lives. With each step forward, Case and Mia are pulled closer together and forced to confront their mutual attraction. But when the truth about Theo is revealed, Case may have to make a choice between his brother and the only woman he’s ever loved.

Case Taggart has been lost since his twin brother Theo was killed in the line of duty. He is adrift in life never connecting with anyone the way he did with his twin. He is trying to honor his memory by taking care of Theo’s girl and his newborn son. When he meets Mia she puts a light back in his life that has been missed. But when he finds out she betrayed him he can’t forgive her lies and quickly turns his back on her. Will it be the biggest mistake he ever made, letting her go?
Mia Danvers is in love with Case Taggart even if he refuses to ever see her again. She hoped to get him to understand why she lied—she had good intentions. Unfortunately, he won’t listen to reason so she decides the best way to get back in his good graces is to help him find his brother Theo. When Mia learns Theo is alive and has evidence to back it up she runs right to Case. She can only wish for a second chance to prove to Case how much his happiness means to her even if it means not being in his life.
When Mia and Case work together to try and find Theo and the horrible Hope McDonald its magic. These two have amazing chemistry even when they are fighting it and each other. Case is not that bright when it comes relationships and he really messes up at every turn. He can’t deny their attraction but he doesn’t feel like he can trust her.
Case really surprised me he seemed stand offish in the previous books. I thought Theo was the charismatic sexy twin. But Case had his own charm that Mia and myself could not resist. As with all of the books in this series there is sexy BDSM scenes that will leave you wanting more. There is danger and intrigue and things that make you gasp. Case is confused by his feelings; he doesn’t know what to do with them he knows he wants Mia in this life but he has no idea how to express how he feels. So he messes up with her and in the end has to work harder than he ever has for anything in his life. Mia was his soulmate, his other half he didn’t figure it out until he lost her and boy does she make him work for it. I love Mia, she was a great female character with heart and a hidden strength. I loved this book from beginning to end. I can’t wait for Erin and Theo’s story.
This is one of my favorite series, I anxiously await every one of them. I adore how the author incorporations the characters from the other books as one big dysfunctional family.
An explosive, steamy, adventurous read you will not want to miss.
RECEIVED AN ARC IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW.
Case let his free hand stray down to Mia’s waist, enjoying the feel of her curves. “You’re a reporter, not a soldier. I’ve agreed to stand back and let you work. I’ve agreed to let you bring along Fain. Give me something here. I’m in charge of this operation.”
She sighed, a sexy sound. “I don’t want you to cut me out. I can’t stand being treated like I’m made of glass.”
She was so obviously made of warmth and sex. He lowered his head, lips hovering over her mouth. He’d waited so damn long. “I won’t cut you out. I promise. But I need to know you’ll obey me if things get dangerous.”
“It won’t,” she promised, her hands moving to his waist.
He wanted those hands all over his body. “But if it does…”
Her lips were so close. “I’ll follow your orders. You’re in charge if things get dangerous.”
That wasn’t good enough. “And here, Mia. I’m in charge when we play.
You’re the sweet sub and I’m the dirty Dom who’s going to demand absolutely everything you have to give me. Tell me yes. Tell me we can play.”
“Yes, Case. Yes.”
He covered her mouth with his, devouring her like a starving man. He couldn’t be gentle. He needed her far too much.
Her arms wound around him and she held on, pressing her body to his. Her breasts flattened against his chest.
This was what he’d wanted that first night, the first moment he’d seen her. He’d wanted soft and submissive. She’d called to that dominant piece of him he hadn’t known existed. Before Mia had walked into his life, he’d enjoyed the lifestyle, but he hadn’t truly understood it. He hadn’t known what it meant to need to dominate a woman—not for mere sexual purposes or to feed his own ego. He needed to dominate her because she ruled his every thought, because he needed to be important to this one woman.
No. Case forced himself to stop. He pulled away from the drugging kisses she was giving him. He couldn’t go down that path. If he was going to take her, it would be on his terms, and that meant he wasn’t going to play the idiot. He wasn’t going to ask for more than she could give him. He wasn’t going to pretend this was some grand love. She wasn’t Charlotte and he wasn’t Ian.
They didn’t get that forever thing.
But they could have this.
“What’s wrong?” She looked up at him and then started to pull away.
He wasn’t going to let that happen. He turned her around so his front nestled her back. “Nothing’s wrong. I want to feel you. Do you have any idea how long I’ve waited to touch you, Mia? How often I’ve thought about this?” His hands were on her waist and he brought them up slowly. “I want to memorize every inch of your skin, and do you know how I’m going to do it?”
She leaned back into him. “You’re going to touch me.”
He loved how breathless she was. No other woman ever responded as honestly to him as she did. He could trust her body even if he didn’t trust the rest of her. Oh, she wouldn’t mean to hurt him. He actually believed that, but she would choose her world. She would choose her family over him. He could keep her for a little while.
“What am I going to touch you with, princess?” He moved slowly, letting his hands find the warm skin under her shirt.
“Your hands.” Her head fell back against his chest. Without heels on she didn’t quite reach his shoulders. “I want your hands everywhere, Case. They feel so good.”
“I will touch you everywhere, but that’s not all I’ll do.” He was right under her breasts. This was one of the things D/s had taught him. Sex required discipline. Patience. Control. He wanted to shove her on that bed and force his dick inside her, but that wouldn’t make it good for her. This methodical arousal of every inch of her body would make her ready for him, would make her scream for him.
Might make her stay with him for a while.
