Minx Montgomery's only light in a terrible childhood was her neighbor and best friend, Mouse. When he left Texas at the age of seventeen, she never heard from him again, though she's never forgotten him either. She moved in with her uncle, went to college and became a counselor. Her supervisor at the clinic sexually harassed her. Reporting him backfired. Demoted, she's transferred to another branch in the city--to the same district she'd finally managed to escape.
Laszlo Jensen, a former SEAL, has spent the last two years recovering from the damage done when his squad's truck drove over an antitank landmine. Six other team-mates were also badly hurt, the seventh--Mouse--dead, in what their team leader Badger Horley realized later had to be a trap set to take them out. He and his team-mate Geir are trying to learn more about Mouse’s history. Was the whole squad targeted with that landmine, or just their youngest, newest member? The truth is more disturbing and senseless than they'd anticipated. Who was Mouse really?
Minx may be the only person who knew the boy that later became a dangerous, hunted man…

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Booksprout and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
This was a fast paced and very compelling story (just like all of her other novels.) This one sure didn't disappoint. With each clue and search, the guys of the SEAL team hit with an anti-tank mine get closer to answers as to the incident that killed one of their own and severely injured the rest of them.
It is through their quest for answers that each of them find their true love in the most unlikely of places. This one is no different. Minx was a close childhood friend of Mouse's. Certain questions have been answered but most questions have arisen. Minx is faced with a stalker and was harassed on the job. While looking for clues into Mouse's background, Laszlo and Geir help Minx with her issues.
Geir is the next installment of the series and I CAN'T WAIT!!!! Each story just gets better and better. I just love how the story continues the plot of the series while containing a sub-plot. Also the stories are fast paced that keeps the reader glued to their e-reader.
I so highly recommend this to anyone who loves military romance.
I was kindly provided this book as an ARC; in exchange for my honest review. This is book 5 in the SEALs Of Steel series.
“SEALs of Steel” were an eight-man SEAL team unit that was misled/ambushed/given “bogus” orders that caused them to hit a landmine in their transport. All the men were grievously injured and one man (“Mouse”) died. The remaining seven SEALs are investigating to find out what happened and why; and hopefully in the end they will avenge Mouse’s death.
You certainly must read this series in order or you will be lost. This is definitely a series with layers of stories within a STORY.
This book centers around Laszlo & Minx. The only other team member that is represented in this story is Geir. There is reference to Levi/Ice & also Mason. These three characters are from two of Ms. Dale’s other related SEALs series.
Geir & Laszlo are in Dallas trying to investigate Mouse’s background as events to this point have led the team to believe their “accident” & the rash of tragic events the team members closest friends & family have suffered are somehow linked to their deceased team member, Mouse. Minx is a child social worker/counselor that grew up with Mouse & loved him as a brother. Many secrets are revealed & more chaos occurs.
It is a fast paced story & should interest even the most cynical reader. I did feel as if the story was cut a little short or was maybe rushed. This storyline is involved and probably won’t come to a conclusion or semi-conclusion for at least a few more books. Such a bummer to have to read more interesting stories to get to the “end” (haha). Enjoy.
