AEGIS: an elite team of ex-military men working under the radar of most governments. If you have a problem no one else can handle, they can help.

A former SEAL and Black Ops specialist who left the CIA, Nick Donovan gave up a life on the edge to work in the private sector. But that didn't stop his enemies from coming after him—or his family. In a case of mistaken identity, a drug cartel kidnaps his sister-in-law's best friend … a woman from Nick's past.

One minute Jennifer Grayson is housesitting and the next she's abducted to a foreign brothel. Jennifer is planning her escape when her first "customer" arrives. Nick, the man who broke her heart years ago, has come to her rescue. Now, as they race for their lives, passion for each other reignites and old secrets resurface. Can Nick keep the woman he loves safe against an enemy with a personal vendetta?

First Thought when Finished:Personal Target by Kay Thomas had me wishing I had started at book 1 and that book 3 was already out. It was that good!

Overall Thoughts: The action was intense! I really like when a RS is heavy on the suspense and action so this was right up my alley. Also I am partial to stories about rescue surrounding human trafficking (aka my love of the LCR series by Christy Reece). It is a global issue so the locals also were interesting (Africa, Mexico). The romance was strong and with their history easy enough to fall in love with them. My only character complaint was the middle part of the story Jennifer was edging that TSTL line and Nick was pent up angry man. They both redeemed themselves though and that is all that matters. I will be picking up book 1 and counting down to book 3!

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By P.J. Ochlan / Length: 8 hrs and 47 mins

Holy number of accents! P.J. did a great job considering the number of accents in this story (Mexico, African, Southern) and still managed to keep the main characters unique. His male characters were stronger than his females but didn’t take me long to warm up to those. I would listen to his narration again.

Status Updates

25%: “#Listening Best Quote So Far: “As closed as a nun’s knees”. So far really liking it–though gotta give it up to Jenny she seems to be a little more together than the professional Nick.”

50%: #Listening Oh Thanks God she realized (hopefully) that she really was being a TSTL leading lady. Though they do need to talk!”

  1. I’ve been interested in reading these ever since meeting Kay, but haven’t gotten around to them yet. I’m glad you enjoyed it – I’ll definitely start with book 1 when I do!

  2. I’ve the first book in this series but it’s languished on my TBR. Time to move it forward. Thanks for the review! I, too, am partial to the human trafficking storyline.

    • I need to go back and read it. For some reason when I picked this up I thought it was the first (and I never felt lost) but now I want to know more about the group 🙂
