Eva Dempsey is out of options.

She’s made it to Oak Creek, Wyoming with two traumatized dogs, twenty dollars, and a fear of damned near everything.

Things that didn’t make it with her? Her self-esteem, confidence, or any way of supporting herself.

Theo Lindstrom knows how to survive. He proved it as a child when he had to keep himself and sister alive in the wilderness. Now he runs Linear Tactical, the company his adoptive father helped create, and teaches survival skills to others.

So he recognizes the desperation in the eyes of the petite beauty who’s pulled into town, and knows there’s more to her story than she’s letting on.

He normally keeps to himself—for very good reasons—but he can’t this time. Something about Eva draws him in a way he can’t resist, even knowing she’s got secrets. The deadly kind.

When the danger she's running from shows up, Theo’s not going to let her fight it alone.

This is his town.
This is his woman.

And he’ll protect both to his last breath.


The second generation of Linear Tactical is alive and well in Oak Creek! Janie Crouch is delighting her readers by taking us back to the town we love so hard and having the children of the original gang now be in charge of the company and surrounding the key players. I think if you are a die hard fan of Crouch’s original Linear Tactical series you will pick up the characters fairly well, but if you’re new to the town, there could have been a bit more back story filled in to make for a smoother transition of who is who. Overall a powerful story that is rich with intrigue and romance that stole my heart quickly and has me wanting more very soon!

Theo is all we could ever have expected him to grow up to be and more! He’s sincere and steadfast and as protective as ever of those he loves. I loved seeing him come into his own and also the snippets of him with mom and dad.

Eva is really sweet and easily gained my loyalty from the start with her story and with the sad situation she found herself in. I really enjoyed seeing her get to thrive under what love should truly be.

I highly recommend this book to anyone that enjoys an action packed intrigue filled with great characters, lots of heart and more danger than you know what to do with. I can’t wait for more in the series!
