Sometimes the deepest scars are the ones that can't be seen.
Single mom Peyton Ward works hard to make ends meet. At Linear Tactical she’s surrounded by heroes on a regular basis…but none of them are hers. She thought she'd found one in Linear’s silent partner, and country music superstar, Cade Conner.
She was wrong.
Unintended wounds still cut as deep.
Cade may not work day to day operations at Linear, but he takes the mission of the company he helped create—teaching survival intelligence and self-defense skills to the people who need them most—seriously. And finding out he’s wounded Peyton in the worst way possible weighs on him.
So when danger on closes in on her, he will damn well be by her side, making sure they survive so he can right his personal wrongs.
He might not have been a Special Forces soldier, but Cade Conner knows how to fight. And Peyton is a woman worth fighting for. AMAZON LINK
This was a good solid story with good main characters and supporting cast of people. It was interesting to see that Cade had been the behind-the-scenes money guy that helped get it up and running.
I liked that the reader got both points of view. Although in the beginning I was a little thrown when it opened up with a play by play first with one and they another play by play by the other. I generally don't like that and was hoping that the whole book wasn't like that. I had my fingers crossed and was relieved to find that it wasn't all written like that.
Jess was a whip smart little girl and pretty perceptive little girl. Peyton has done a really great job raising her with most of the weight falling on her. Heck, she's working three jobs just to give her little girl every opportunity she can.
Cade has a lot to make up for even though he didn't know about all the secrets that have been kept from him.
There is plenty of tension that comes from the danger that is surrounding Peyton. She just doesn't know when and where it's going to hit.
Cade's stalker is creepy and seems to know too much on how to strike. As it got much further into the book I had my suspicions about one particular person and a possible motive. I was right but there was even more of a twist coming concerning that.
Don't we all want a H.E.A. in our stories? Don't fret. This story does have one, and a very nice one at that.
