After completing a difficult and secret task to eliminate the leader of a Russian terrorist organization, former Navy SEAL and expert sniper, Dane “Striker” Ryan, is booted from his SEAL team, destroying his reputation as a trusted servant to his country. Burned, angry and out of work, he agrees to take an assignment from a shadowy organization recruiting this Navy SEAL for a special project. For a sizable sum of money, he is to eliminate a dangerous assassin by any means necessary. Unemployed, and with no means to make his next rent payment, he accepts the lucrative work.
Alex Sokolov, self-trained assassin, is on a mission of revenge for her parents’ deaths, a mission that has spanned two years. As she nears her ultimate target, the hunter becomes the hunted.
Striker and Alex join forces in this international intrigue to discover the kingpin orchestrating the murders of secret agents, including Alex’s own parents.
Love the slow-build!
This is book 2 in the Shadow SEALs series and it features Dane “Striker” Ryan and Anya Federov/Alexa Sokolov. The whole “Charley” scenario needs to have a brief explanation in each book, otherwise you feel like you jumped into the middle of a story without explanation. I liked the semi-slow build of attraction between them. I also liked the build up of the mystery and suspense.
The characters were fantastic! It was a shorter book but with a fulfilling and complete story. This is a wonderful and trusted author, sure to bring you highly entertaining stories full of romance and suspense.
