Publisher Description

No time to rest. The world is a mess …

He’d barely made it home from helping Griffin only to find himself called to rescue a doctor on a cruise ship overtaken by pirates in their search for Abigail Dalton. The pirates had no trouble killing passengers until they found the right woman. With one man at his side, Jax sneaks onto the ship to rescue her.

When she heard the gunfire, Abby hid in the venting on the ship. When a man susses out her hiding place, she’s sure her world is about to end. Only Jax is on her side; yet he came with just one man to help. Stunned, she stays close as Jax frees the ship and keeps her safe—until they find out the real reason for this nightmare, when she’s forced to England to face the two-legged monster of her nightmares ...

The safest place is at Jax’s side, but Abby knows all too well how slippery this monster really is and how easily he steps from the shadows to grab his victims …

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Booksprout and I am voluntarily reviewing it.

This was a great addition to the series. These men are at a cross-roads in their life. They are ready to hang up their military careers and move forward but to what? They all receive a call to work a mission. Jax is on his way home from helping Griffin with his mission. He is still at the airport when he gets his call. A cruise ship has been hi-jacked by pirates. They are looking for a doctor. Jax heads to his mission and meets up with Beau. Jax has signed up for one mission with the Mavericks and only one. He and Beau head to Panama where the ship is to rescue Dr. Abigail (Abby) Eleanor.

Abby has a harrowing experience. She hides in the duct work of the ship when she hears gun-fire. She is rescued by two totally gorgeous men but refuse to leave the ship as planned while the lives of the other passengers are in danger. What these three go through is one that had me reading long into the night. I figured out the one man behind the evil plot but there was still a twist to the story that I hadn't figured on.

I adored the dual POV that this book was written in. There is a lot of action in this series so the attraction between the two main protagonists first starts out in the characters' minds.

This story is a sexy story and has a scene that may offend some readers. As such, I can only highly recommend this story for anyone over the age of 18, especially if you love your romance with suspense and intrigue.

Jax (Protecting A Doctor From the Shadows)

Dr. Abby, medical doctor and renowned researcher. Focused, dedicated, workaholic. Long overdue for a vacation and a cruise ship would be her long overdue change of pace. Until it was not. Jax was on his own mission, after helping Griffin in Book 2. Joined by Beau, another SEAL, they fight pirates in their quest of rescuing Dr Abby and then protect her as an old threat hides in the shadows. Strong women and Navy SEALS. Bravo.

Tons of action with amazing characters!

This is book 3 in The Mavericks series and it features Jax and Abby. She’s supposed to be on vacation but someone unwelcome from her past has other plans for her. Jax is sent to rescue a famous doctor on a cruise ship because she’s been targeted for abduction. He finds the doctor and she is beautiful! Abby is a no-nonsense, down to earth woman, who in the middle of all the chaos, finds Jax VERY sexy. The flirtation and banter are super cute. I love how they didn’t jump into bed right away but let it build.

This story has tons of action with amazing characters. I love how the epilogue sets you up for the next book.
