Legionnaire Jamie Armstrong lives in the shadows. A medic haunted by his mistakes, he knows better than to hope for redemption.

Hacker Samira Desta is a woman he swore to forget, but as a key witness to a deadly conspiracy, Samira is his to protect.
But the woman he rescues might be the one who saves him
After a year in hiding, Samira’s worst fears come true when her cover is blown and the unlikeliest of allies comes to her aid—the secretive Scot with whom she shared one unforgettable night. Hunted by lethal forces and losing the battle against their desire, Jamie and Samira make a desperate play to take the fight to their enemy—but those at greatest risk of ruin may be themselves…

Fly Girl’s Review:
OK, I wasn’t sure what to expect with this one. It seemed like a great book for Memorial Day Weekend wrap up so I asked for it through Netgalley. I’m really impressed. This one had me hooked from the first page. The action is nonstop. I only put it down because I had a motorcycle rally this weekend and a few other Memorial Day events to go to.
I’m not going to rehash the blurb, you can read that above. But I will tell you one thing, this is not your typical military story, it isn’t the U.S. military. She writes about the French “Foreign” Legion as we call them here in the U.S. She gives a little bit of the mission of the Legionnaires throughout the book, but the Corporal she uses in her book is on leave the whole time, so it mainly talks about his skill set more than the Legionnaires as a whole. Her research seems pretty solid though and I like the world-wise hero she creates. She complements him with a reluctantly world-wise heroine. To say Samira would rather not be world-wise is an understatement, but she rises above the challenges she’s given with great strength and humanity.
This book takes you all over Europe on a roller-coaster of action adventure, from computer hacking, to train hopping, to camera dodging, to Secret Service impersonation, the ride doesn’t look like it’s going to end. You do get your HEA finally, but it still has a long way to go for both of them just as any love story does.
I’m giving this 5 of 5 propellers because it is going to stay with me long after reading and it had all the elements I love; HEA and no cliff hanger!!! I will definitely have to catch up on this series with the first two. I can’t wait to see what Brynn comes up with next for us.
