In a world on the brink...Six men. One sunken Spanish galleon. Millions in gold and silver coins lying on the ocean floor. And a past that refuses to let the guys of Deep Six Salvage forget the Navy SEAL motto: the only easy day was yesterday...There's more than one kind of treasure...The nation's security has always been CIA agent Olivia Mortier's top priority. But a mission-gone-wrong has begun to make her wonder if there's more to life than risking hers.And more than one secret at the bottom of the sea...Only two things could make Leo Anderson abandon his hunt for the legendary lost ship, La Santa Christina, and return to the world of weapons and warfare he swore to leave behind: a capsule of enriched uranium, lost on the ocean floor, and a plea for assistance from the one woman he can't seem to forget...

First Thought when Finished: Hell or High Water by Julie Ann Walker was just darn right fun and I have a new favorite word!

Quick Thoughts:

1: Loved the guys: they were alpha,funny, smart, and sexy. What is there not to love?
2: Loved Maddie: So yes she is the leading lady in the NEXT Deep Six book but she totally stole the page when she was on it!
3: Olivia: Wish I loved her more but she was a smart tough cookie. I admired her and Leo loved her. That is enough for me.
4: Leo: OMG I totally fell in love with him pretty much within the first 4 chapters. He was strong, loyal, a bit smart assy, and willing to do anything for his friends.
5: The ACTION: This was a freaking hellish day but oh what a ride! I love the Black Knight Inc stories but this series has the potential to be more explosive!

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By Mackenzie Cartwright / Length: 12 hrs and 29 mins


I enjoyed the narration by Mackenzie. She did a really great job with pacing and style. I had a slight problem with her male voices but warmed up to the by the end of the book. Easy to listen to though and her voice for Maddie was just spot-on! So Book 2 will be in audio for me if she is still doing the narration.

  1. I may pick this one up . It’s funny, I have a habit of loving the supporting characters more than the leading ladies as well πŸ™‚
