Rating: 4.5 of 5 Stars


Four men fighting against their pasts…and for each other.

Several years after washing up on a beach in South Africa with absolutely no memory—not even his name—Lucky would rather not remember his past. Based on the number of scars on his body, it couldn’t have been anything good.

Then a man claiming to be his former Navy SEAL teammate walks into the bar and insists that Lucky’s real name is Josiah Joshua Kent. Turns out he’s been listed as KIA, and since he’s not dead, he’s now AWOL—and under suspicion.

Discovering Josh is alive throws Rex, and his relationship with Sawyer, into a tailspin. Rex can finally lay to rest the nightmares of the night he couldn’t save his teammate. And Sawyer is faced with his worst nightmare—a relationship threatened by a very real ghost from the past.

As Josh begins to piece his memories back together, another man with a shadowy connection to his past—and maybe his heart—holds the key that could free him. Or send him to a traitor’s fate.


This was a great addition to the series with more than a few surprises.

The biggest surprise of all was one of the men returning from the dead and seeing poor Rex, who is just starting out on a new relationship with Sawyer, have his world turned on its axis.

If you remember Rex’s story you will remember he watched his lover and teammate burned to death after months of torture on a failed rescue mission to save a CIA agent. Four years later and it looks as though Josh is alive although he has no memory of his previous life as a seal and is now known as Lucky.

Was he turned? Is he a traitor? Does he really have amnesia? Why is he found living where he is and what does that mean to Dash who it turns out is the CIA agent they were trying to rescue?

The book is full of questions and suspicion and you have to wait right up until the end to get most of the answers. In the meantime Sawyer is left feeling adrift and Dash may have fallen in love with a man sent to kill his family.

There are twists and turns all the way but also a lot of tender moments as these four men navigate their pasts, present and future.

Loved it!

  1. Every time I open my email to this site if find a new book that I wish that I could be reading right now. Sadly I can’t because I have to buy and then I have to figure out if I want to start it now or do I go with another book that I have been wanting to read. So now my Must Read pile is just getting bigger and bigger cause I gal can only read so fast. I love the sound of this book. Thank you for the post and review.
