Jackson Steele is part of KGI, which is a military group, kind of. The only things he cares about are his team, his friends and his missions. He’s stoic, reserved and kind of an ass. After an almost screwed up mission, he ends up at a doctor’s office. He sees Maren, who his team helped rescue a while back. He is extremely attracted to her and has been for quite some time. He decides to indulge his fantasies about her while they are stuck there for the night. He figures he can get her out of his system and move on.
Maren Scofield is a doctor in a third world country. This has always been her dream and she thoroughly enjoys living it. Her only complaint is that the area’s drug lord sends his minions to persuade her to go out with him. Then her fantasy man shows up and needs medical attention, which she is only too happy to provide. They have a hot, no strings attached night and he leaves. A few days later, he’s back for more time together, only to be called for a mission where he has to leave immediately. Maren disappears and that’s the back drop for the story.
I love the KGI series and Maya Banks. I love Steele and have been waiting for this book to come out.
I liked this book a lot but it was kind of sappy. Their love just kind of happened without much build up. He went from over the top alpha male to just a man in love. It just didn’t ring all the way true for me. I still enjoyed it and look forward to Donovan’s book.
