Brooke Clayton knows that she has to escape from her apartment without attracting the notice of the police watching the parking lot. So she takes one last glance at her phone, knowing her mother is going to be worried, and heads out the back way to get lost in the flow of humanity. As soon as her mom, Neely, realizes that she can't reach Brooke, she goes to her brother Major Dane, knowing that if anyone can find her, he and his team of highly trained army men can. They head to Neely's home in Nashville to set up a command center where they can work on finding Brooke before she gets hurt, without even having any idea why she's disappeared in the first place. Dane trusts just one man to protect his niece, Hunter code named Owl because of his amazing eyesight. But when Hunter and Brooke have to run and end up posing as a married couple in a Civil War reenactment sight, the more pressing danger is Brooke falling in love with another man not willing to commit his life to her.
Wow, this book was a fast paced read. I love the way the plot moves from one crazy problem to another. Brooke was a bit of a mystery, even to the reader. It seemed as though I wasn't able to find out just why she was hiding from the police for quite a long time in the story. I also really liked Owl, he seemed more like a person in this book, a lot of Major Dane's men seem more like machines than people, except for maybe Steamer, he has a lot of personality usually. Prepare for a cliff hanger in the end of this book! Can't wait to read the next book to find out what happens to Brooke and Hunter!
I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
