As the commander for A-Tac, a black-ops CIA unit masquerading as Ivy League faculty, Avery Solomon is the best of the best. He'll stop at nothing to ensure the safety of his team, but when a mystery from the past resurfaces, he puts himself directly in the line of fire.
PUSHED TOO FAR
After years of covert missions, Avery harbors regrets that continue to haunt him. He still blames himself for his wife's death fourteen years ago-until an A-Tac operative finds a photo that suggests Avery's wife may still be alive. Determined to discover the truth, Avery heads deep into the hostile territory of Southeast Asia, ready for danger and violence-only to find himself captured by desire . . .
Wilderness guide Sydney Price never backs down from a challenge. She has her own reasons for wanting revenge against the men being hunted by Avery. Though she tries to deny her attraction to the tough, handsome warrior, the spirited Sydney soon finds him impossible to resist. Now she and Avery must work together to uncover the truth-and stay alive. But as the enemy closes in and old secrets unravel, the line between partners and lovers vanishes like mist in the jungle . . .
In the seventh book in the A-Tac series, Avery the “commander for A-Tac, a black-ops CIA unit masquerading as Ivy League faculty”, has lived with the guilt of losing his wife 14 years ago. Sydney, a Wilderness Guide, has also lost someone she cared about. Neither is what the other expects, when they’re teamed together.
But with the possibility of Avery’s wife still alive, he can’t just let it go. Not even when it screams setup.
If you enjoy contemporary romance with strong characters then you’ll enjoy this read. I would’ve enjoyed more weakness from Sydney in the beginning of the story, but she’s likable character that grew on me as the book progressed. Avery’s pretty cut and dry but I like his dedication to not only Sydney but to his team. I’m definitely looking forward to going back and catching up with the rest of the series!
