REVIEW by LAWonder10:
Once again, Traci Hunter Abramson did not disappoint with this exciting new Guardian Suspense/Thriller!
Kristi could never find another love after her fiancé, Ace, tragically died almost two decades ago.
Ace has been dead, as far as the rest of the world knew, and now the "Guardians" needed to persuade his one unforgotten love, Kristi, to join their forces Would she even get past her anger and betrayal to listen to the offer?
This is a fast-moving tale of betrayal, renewal, redemption, greed and forgiveness. It is also a tale of a possible group of individuals who have sacrificed all in aiding their fellowmen.
The characters come "to life" "bringing the reader into" the well portrayed scenes. It is certain the reader will have his/her emotions on edge.
This earns a Five Stars rating.
^This book was gifted me with no suggestion of a positive review. This is my honest review.
BE SURE TO READ THE FIRST TWO BOOKS OF THE GUARDIAN SERIES, AS WELL!
The guardians, the shadowy heroes of the top-secret program designed to protect members of the most elite government organizations, are being hunted down one by one. There is a single explanation: a traitor must be embedded somewhere in their midst. But if they themselves are the target, who will protect them?
CIA operative Renee Niezen has heard tales of the guardians, though she’s never really believed in their existence—until she is approached by Charlotte, an old friend who desperately needs her help to stop the systematic destruction of the guardian program. Renee accepts the plea for assistance, but not everyone is thrilled to have her on the team. Kade—one of the last guardians standing—is unimpressed with Renee’s qualifications and turns instead to the legendary Saint Squad for help. But when Renee is caught in the crosshairs, Kade must set aside his antagonism for the woman in order to protect her. Their grudging alliance soon develops into much more—but before the pair can examine their feelings, their investigation takes a dramatic twist. With lives on the line, Renee and Kade must use their spy training at every turn as they draw dangerously close to the shocking truth.
In the wide-open landscape of Pennsylvania, Charlotte Martin and her father live a peaceful life on their farm . . . or so it seems. In truth, the rural locale provides the perfect front for the father-daughter NSA operatives as they expertly carry out their mission: using a high-tech computer system, they protect a team of undercover agents. Some would kill to have access to this system, and it makes Charlotte and her father prime targets. It was only a matter of time before this nightmare unexpectedly crashed down on them, and only Charlotte escaped with her life. Before Dwight Martin died, though, he initiated the failsafe lockdown, and now Charlotte’s the only one who can access the system. Writer Jake Bradford left the serene Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia for the hustle and bustle of New York to pursue his dreams and never looked back. Until now. Entrusted with his ailing grandmother’s care, Jake knows he needs help—and he can’t believe his luck when a lovely young woman providentially appears on his doorstep. Charlotte creates a new persona for herself and quickly develops a bond with Jake’s grandmother. But it’s the connection she feels with Jake that makes it almost too easy to lose sight of her reality: she is being hunted by men who will stop at nothing to access the intelligence she protects. With time running out, can the couple find a future together, or will Charlotte’s secrets tear them apart?
