Running away can often lead to the same thing you were trying to leave behind …
Vince is not on board with the wave of romance happening at Legendary Security and so is happy to escape all that, but he soon finds himself aboard a research vessel off the coast of the Galapagos Islands, dealing with his own tide of emotions.
Vanessa loves her research trips. This latest one is finally coming to a successful conclusion, as she completes their data collection, when their vessel is boarded by pirates. She’s knocked unconscious and moved to an old sinking tub and left adrift in the ocean. She wakes to find the only other female member of the team is missing …
Worried, the team returns to shore, trying to sort out what happened. Vanessa insists on tracking her missing team member, even as the others vote to return home. Vanessa refuses. She’ll help or die trying. Vince can stay with her or go with the others—his choice—but no way is Vanessa’s lost researcher being left behind.
And, one by one, the other members of the team go missing too …

This is book 19 in the Heroes For Hire series and it features Vince and Vanessa. He’s headed to the Galápagos Islands to locate a missing team of researchers. When he locates Vanessa and her team, minus one doctor, it’s a race against time to locate the missing doctor before she ends up taken to another country. Even though there was a kiss here and there, I did NOT feel ANY romance in this entire book between Vince and Vanessa. Even when they started to take things to the next level at the end of the LAST chapter, the words being said were lacking emotion and any kind of depth. I am disappointed in the romance but not in the action/adventure.
The characters at Legendary Security are all fantastic and the action is great.

I am having a hard time with this book. Vanessa in general to me is not a vixen but a whiner. She repeatedly says the same time or the same question over and over. Several times Vince or Johan have brought up several different scenerios of Dr. Sanchez's disappearance and she still says, "(b)ut why?" I mean really how many times do we have to hear the same things over and over? Also I really didn't feel a connection between Vanessa or Vince. That connection came at the end.
The only plus for me was the dual POV. Normally that helps me to identify to the character but not in case. I can truly say that Vanessa wasn't a character that I enjoyed reading.
Great addition to a long series!
I was kindly provided this book as an ARC; in exchange for my honest review. This is book 19 of ... in the Heroes for Hire series. This book centers around Vince and Vanessa. Vince isn’t “on-board” (haha) with all the recent romances happening within Legendary Security (Heroes for Hire) paramilitary group run by Levi and Ice.
Vince and Vanessa are on a research vessel outside the Galapagos islands when it is attacked. All sorts of fun and games ensues from there (not really much fun)...
This is an adventure/mystery book with a tiny bit of tame romance thrown in. Of course the two main characters get their HEA.
With this series, I typically encourage the reader to read the series in order. However, with this book it’s not critical, but I would still encourage it as it will help you understand all the characters and backstory going on. And of course it’s completely worth your time and money!
