Kill first, ask questions later.

It’s the instinct former-SEAL Jude Williams must fight every time someone touches him. His six months being tortured in an enemy prison camp may be long over, but he’s got scars—all over his body and mind—keeping that time at the forefront of his psyche.

So how could he even consider giving in to the desire he has for the town’s coffeehouse owner?

Lena Mitchell has big gray eyes and a bigger smile—she’s full of life, right down to her purple and teal streaked hair.

There are so many reasons Jude should stay away from her. So many ways he’s bad for her. But when danger shows up on Lena’s door, keeping his distance is no longer an option.

He’ll protect her from any threat.

But who will protect her from him?


A delight from start to finish! Jude and Lena have been dancing around each other for awhile now in the earlier books in the series that centered around their friends and coworkers, so it was like hitting the jackpot to see them finally come together and admit their feelings. I loved every minute of this book, both the romance as well as the emotional depth and in particular the tense intrigue around the sabotage going on in their lives. I’m looking forward to more in the series!

The characters of this series are well-rounded and continue to grow in depth as each book centers on other aspects of their lives. I like the down-to-earth likability of them all and also enjoy the humorous times they manage to share even after pouring their hearts out with each other and others they are helping to re-integrate into life. I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone that enjoys a band of former soldiers who believe in doing the work to overcome their adversity and paying it forward when they manage to find some goodness in their lives.
