Publisher's Summary

What happens when a woman who’s done the unthinkable needs protection? Can a man who’s lost his belief in humanity keep her safe? 

Max Brown doesn’t trust anyone but his team. The former SEAL learned early in life that people let you down - they lie, they steal, and they lie some more. Love is a word that is used to manipulate. Family is meaningless. Max is an island, and he prefers it that way. 

A woman who needs a safe harbor but is undeserving. 

Cyber genius John “Tex” Keegan rescued Eva Dawson, a single mother who was forced to do something inconceivable to save her children. Tex somehow sees the good in her, when no one else does. She is redeemable. Now, just when she’s getting her life back together, someone wants her dead. Tex calls in the Gold Team to help - specifically Max Brown, the man with a past that mirrors that of Eva’s. 

A past that clouds the present. 

Tex has a plan - he always does. But neither the protector nor woman who’s been marked for death make it easy. Neither of them trust, and both will fight to stay in control. If Tex can keep them both alive long enough, he knows the duo is the perfect pair - each of them will be what the other needs to heal the sins of the past.

Names

I know it's trivial but when he was speaking it was Ava and when she was reading it was Eva. It drove me nuts

Eva & Ava

I am a big Riley Edwards fan and look forward to many more books. My complaint is petty but it drove me crazy. The Eva then Ava between the two narrators. I understand she had different names but it was throughout the book.

and mighty Max falls

you have to know the previous books in order to get what I'm saying about mighty Max.
just love this series and riley edwards. I'm really looking forward to declan as he's been mysterious since Red team (violets story) and TeX's comments at the end of this book just enhances it.
and Autumn is edgy and on a mission.
I love the way these books cross within susan stoker and I'm ticked that I didn't read Bubba and Zoe's story. I stopped one book shy and switched to another team. pace is always good and it's so good to have all the other members come into the fray.
narrator's, what more can I say, always brilliant. maxine is my all time fave.
