A high-octane Navy SEAL romance thriller!
Years ago, Admiral Thane (Ghost) Austen and Kayla (Snow White) Austen, walked through the smoke and mirrors of battle and survived. They had two children. Sloane is their daughter. Like her father, she's stubborn, resilient and loyal.
Twenty-three-years old and assigned to N.A.B Coronado, Seaman Austen serves her country like her parents once did. Mustered to the Grinder one afternoon, she's chosen for an exercise. Partnered with a rugged but handsome Navy SEAL. They're hustled to Warner Springs where Special Forces conduct S.E.R.E. training. Fifteen couples will be tested in Operation: Skirt's Down. Sloane and Damon are promised a seven-day vacation in Club Hell. Caged. Hunted. General Northcott, the man in charge, has an ulterior motive. What's at stake? Everything!
When Ghost receives a call from Sloane screaming "Delta it's for Romeo." The retired admiral knows his daughter has been enlisted into a Black Op and she's in danger of paying the price for his sins. But one man will fight to the death for Sloane. Her partner, Lieutenant Damon Stone.
And Sloane will fight for his survival, because she's the daughter of a legend and combat is in her blood.

explosive and heart-melting perfection!
It's been a day and a half since I read the last page of one of my most highly anticipated books from one of my most favorite authors ever, and the book hangover is still gripping me with a SEAL-like determination. I am struggling to find the right words to express just how PERFECT this book is with all the emotions, the story, the adventure, the people (aka characters who I'm convinced are real), everything.
Sloan is the daughter of a SEAL legend and has embodied the best of both of her parents. She's tough, stubborn, hilarious, and brave, all wrapped around a soft spot.
Damon owns and breathes the heart of a warrior and everything that encompasses. I definitely would want him to have my six and my 12 and any other direction every and any time.
I loved everything in this story from catching up with Alpha team, seeing how the families have grown up, experiencing the intense terrifying roller-coaster of a ride of Operation Skirt's Down (truly a sadistic and heinous mission). And then getting to feel all the good, sweet moments wrap all around it, making the heart-wrenching moments all the more worth it for the treasure you get at the end.
I'm thinking this book has become my favorite of the series, but then when I look at any of the previous 6 books, they all are worthy of that title as well. You cannot go wrong by reading and experiencing the adventure and happily-ever-afters Natasza Waters share in her stories.
