An LCR Elite Novel
He’ll Stop At Nothing To Protect The Ones He Loves
LCR Elite operative Aidan Thorne is dedicated to rescuing kidnapped victims from some of the most dangerous places in the world, but that will never stop him from hunting down a coldblooded killer. Child psychologist Anna Bradford is a temptation unlike any he’s ever faced, penetrating the steely armor encasing his heart. Though he wants her with an unending ache, Anna’s very survival requires Aidan to stay as far away from her as possible.
Understanding human behavior is Anna Bradford’s profession. Aidan Thorne is a mystery she has yet to unravel. Her fascination for the snarling, often rude man is a battle she fights on a daily basis. Her head tells her to stay away, her heart tells her something different. When they join forces to help rescue a friend, Aidan finally allows Anna to see the man beneath the tough exterior. Falling in love with him was inevitable.
But someone is watching. He’s been hiding in the shadows for years, waiting. The time has finally arrived. Anna Bradford will be his tool, his perfect weapon of revenge. She will be his masterpiece.
His worst fears realized, Aidan must now find a way to save Anna before the madman that destroyed his life once before lives out his ultimate fantasy.
Another great book thank you
Aidan Thorne has been a mystery man for the LCR Elite series. You knew he had a backstory, and you knew he was a protector because of it. He never begrudged his friends at LCR their happily ever afters. In fact, he went out of the way to help Riley and Justin and Sabrina and Declan. You just knew whatever his past, it was painful and all-encompassing.
Anna overcame a vicious kidnapping/brainwashing and hostage situation and is using her experience to help other traumatized victims. She is gracious, understanding and everything Aidan knew he needed but couldn't have.
Cue the explosive situation they find themselves in together. Not just once, but twice, and they trusted each other to be there. It wasn't a HE-MAN/ SHE-WEAK relationship, nor a SHE-BAD/ HE-CLUELESS one. It was an honest give and take, based on trust and belief in the other to do what needed to be done. Even with the heaviness of each of their pasts, they both knew love had found them and would work together to keep it.
Christy Reece has created some of the most heroic characters and some of the most vile villains and she continues that with Running Wild! Just when you take a breath, think you know where it's headed, BAM! Another twist you just didn't see coming! And every time, it just makes you fall a little more in love with Aidan and Anna, not to mention continuing to love and appreciate the LCR family. By the end, emotions are high, tears are flowing and I was desperately trying to figure out how to wait for the next story from her!!!!
