From Goodreads: Lies have consequences…
Twelve years ago, Max Clayton had no choices. Honor bound to hunt a traitor, the government declared him dead to the outside world. He completed his mission, but lost the only woman he ever loved and a child he never knew existed.
And so does breaking a woman’s heart…
Max was her life, her very heartbeat. After his death, alone and haunted by a dangerous past, Kat Jannsen made the ultimate sacrifice to keep their daughter safe.
When Kat discovers Max is alive her carefully constructed jigsaw puzzle life is torn to pieces. But an old enemy has been watching…waiting to strike. As the danger mounts, she has nowhere to turn but to Max. She can trust him with her life, but does she dare trust him with her heart?
This book was so exciting. I didn’t want to put it down. The action was intense, but not overwhelming. I sometimes get annoyed when there’s a lot of action going on in the book, like if it seems like it’s going on too long… but I didn’t get that feeling with this book. I also LOVED the story between Kat and Max. I really can’t imagine what it would be like to have to go through something like that. Losing someone is bad enough, but having to adjust to them coming back into your life after everything? That’s gotta be insanely difficult. The way this book mixes emotion and action is what I loved most. There was always something exciting going on and it made me want to keep turning the pages. The story line with their child is also one that I found really interesting and got involved in it emotionally. That’s another thing that’s gotta be something incredibly difficult to deal with, but these two characters get through the situations they get placed in in a way that’s both realistic and admirable. Kat and Max are definitely strong people and love each other and their family very much. I also thought that the ending was very interesting, especially when we find out who was behind it all! Crazy! I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone looking for an action packed novel. 🙂
