Publisher Description

"Words cannot explain how phenomenal this book was. The characters are so believable and relatable. The twists and turns keep you on the edge of your seat and flying through the pages. This is one book you should be desperate to read." Caroline 

Special Agent Wyatt Tanner has always worked undercover. He thrives in the dark of the night. He survives by turning himself into someone else. But living so long in the shadows can make a man forget who he really is. When people start dying, when he finds blood on his own hands, he questions the choices he has made, the people he is with. 

Can he find his way back to the light? Can he trust the beautiful woman who needs his help? Or does she also have a secret life? 

He'll have to make one desperate play to find out…

Book three in this series. Plenty of intrigue, questions and twists in this one. Outstanding story and romance to top it all off. There were a couple of places the story bottomed out, then spun back up into the mystery you expect. The whole series is a good read, don’t miss it.

Took a while but decent read!

This book started out really slow, I put it down a few times before I got into the good parts of the story, the ending was definitely unexpected and the build up in the second half of the book definitely came in and saved my reading experience. I read it as a part of a boxed set but thought i’d give it an individual review.

Off the grid trilogy

I loved the first three books. I just could not put it down. Can’t wait for more. The suspense kept me going. Awesome.
