Abby Williams is an investigative reporter sent on a dangerous assignment. One of Falcon’s agents is being held in the notorious Lubyanka Prison where experimental drugs were used to make him break under integration. The agent is a man Abby has a painful history with. A man can never forgive her betrayal.

Can Tony and Abby race against time to save the CIA operative? Will Tony regain his memory only to learn that she is the only woman he’d ever loved and the only person he ever feared? Does love win this battle? Or do these two souls who are meant to be together take the safe road and part with just a handful of memories?

She must’ve sensed his fear for she touched his arm. “It’s going to be okay. I personally owe you that much.”

He reached over, hooked his hand around the back of her neck and pulled her mouth to his lips. He’d meant the light contact as a ploy to see if it rattled anything in his memory.

He never intended for the kiss to turn passionate. He pressed against her body and she wrapped her arms around him as if he was a life raft and they were adrift on the open seas.

Her warmth surrounded him and kicked up his heart rate. The intensity of the moment seared something deep inside him to the point of real fear. He had to pull back to the surface so he could gasp for air. For the first time in days something felt vaguely familiar. A dim light in his head turned on and he knew with a certainty that shook him to his toes that he’d kissed this woman before.

My Review:

This was a fast paced tale that I couldn’t put down. It was intimate yet exciting and suspenseful. I felt like I lived this story alongside the characters. The storyline was well put together and the action was vividly real. I read the better part of this book in one sitting. It did jump around quite a bit to give all aspects of the story and make it well rounded, however this also increased the cast size making it difficult to focus on certain individuals at times.

I enjoyed the main characters. The male lead was the drool-worthy alpha male type who cared. However, I spent a great deal of time at the beginning of the novel feeling a bit lost. There were a few key pieces of information that the female lead had that the audience (and the male lead) didn’t. It made it difficult to get a read on her character. Also, when the information finally came to light it didn’t seem to matter that much, however big the news was. I found the love scenes enjoyable even if they came out of nowhere at times. I found myself wondering why the female lead was putting herself back into that spot, yet you could see how much she loved him so it works.

I found that the supporting cast was pretty well divided into 2 groups. Those who work with the main character and those who don’t. Those who were on the same side as the main characters all seemed quite likeable individuals but weren’t developed outside of their direct roles. The rest of the supporting cast was more well-rounded and almost all were the ‘bad guys’. They were difficult to identify with as they were such extremists yet filled their roles beautifully. I also enjoyed the dialogue and it fit well within the story. I quite enjoyed the different inflections that you found in the speech patterns of individuals based on their origins.

I thoroughly enjoyed Foster’s well written, fast paced, and captivating writing. I will definitely be reading more of her work and will be recommending this to others.

About the author:

As long as she can remember, Geri Foster has been a lover of reading and the written words. In the seventh grade she wore out two library cards and had read every book in her age area of the library. After raising a family and saying good-bye to the corporate world, she tried her hand at writing.

Action, intrigue, danger and sultry romance drew her like a magnet. That’s why she has no choice but to write action-romance suspense. While she reads every genre under the sun, she’s always been drawn to guns, bombs and fighting men. Secrecy and suspense move her to write edgy stories about daring and honorable heroes who manage against all odds to end up with their one true love.
