To ex-Navy SEAL Mitch Granger, responsibility isn’t just a word. It’s his Code of Honor. But when assigned to protect Coercion Ten’s latest target, she challenges his authority, defies his rules, and wreaks havoc on his personal willpower. Fighting for her isn’t a problem. Giving his life for her isn’t a problem. Forgetting their world-stopping kiss? Definite problem. And if he can’t concentrate solely on keeping her safe, it may cost them both their lives.
Journalist Liz Walkert’s missing father sent her a cryptic message that she was in danger. What he didn’t tell her was why. Unbeknownst to Liz, her family has been in Witness Protection all her life. Mitch may be her bodyguard, but his protection comes close to being control, the one thing she has none of in his presence. After a kidnap attempt and a narrow escape from attacking CT forces, they both realize they’re going to need to focus on the mission and fight their attraction if they have any hope of surviving.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Entangled Publishing via NetGalley and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
This book was full of intrigue and mystery. I have not read the first book in this series so I was a little lost in the beginning. I continued on as the suspense was right there in the story from the very beginning. As I continued to read the story, the terminology became easier to understand. I did enjoy the plot and the characters. I also was thankful for the dual POV. The background of these two led them into decisions that would have baffled me if I didn't read into their thoughts.
These two characters were sparking off of each other right from the beginning. While Elizabeth (Liz), questioned and rebuffed Mitch's orders in the beginning, she quickly realized the necessity for them and followed through. I did enjoy that. She was a strong female protagonist but she was able to see the reasoning for the rules in benefiting her protection. Mitch on the other hand was stand-offish but seeing getting his POV, I was able to see the strong protective alpha male in his prime.
There were some lightly steamy scenes but nothing to graphic that really shouldn't offend anyone. I recommend this story to anyone who loves intrigue, mystery, action and adventure along with the romance.
