After a disastrous career-ending mission, he never expected to be sent back into the shadows.
For months Ajax has been languishing on his sister’s couch, drowning himself in beer and whiskey. It was the only way to bury the pain of losing his entire SEAL team during a mission he does not remember. Until he discovers everything he’s been told about that day was a lie. Now he'll jump on the first flight to Ethiopia with Ryker—his best friend, teammate, and foster brother—to rescue the rest of their team.
Serena has a heart of gold and a desire to help people. She’s never physically met the woman she works for, but she knows every job she does saves lives and corrects injustices. Serena’s task is to dole out assignments, be the liaison. Participating in the missions themselves has never been required…until now. Her history has made her vital to the mission.
Serena isn’t prepared for the brooding man who looks like he’s going to take down the next person he sees with his eyes alone. Nor is she prepared for the way his intensity makes her feel things she never expected in this lifetime.
Ajax is not pleased that Serena will be accompanying them. She doesn’t belong in a war zone. But when the slight woman flattens Ajax on his back on day one, he has a change of heart. Maybe she’s not as soft as she appears. He needs her help, and she needs him. But will her presence endanger the entire mission?
Ajax & Serena
I totally loved this story!! Ajax was so endearing with his immense sense of awareness to Serena’s feelings and background!!! Thanks for this wonderful story!! Again, I LOVED IT!!! Just hope Ryker & Xena has one just as great!!!
Shadow in the Desert
ARC for honest review with no compensation
Shadow in the Desert by Becca Jameson is book 3 in the Shadow SEALs series by various authors. While each book is a standalone there is an underlying theme with a shadowy figure named Charley. Can’t wait for the next book in this series.
This book has so much happening…intriguing, adventure, secret mission, romance, emotional and so much more. Ajax and Serena are from to different worlds but come together for the good of the mission and find a way to navigate into something lasting forever…
Love that this book is tied to the next book in this series as we see what transpires with the secondary characters in this book, Ryker and Xena in Shadow in the Mountains by KaLyn Cooper.
