Everything that Bee once believed in has changed … because of him. With one heated glance, one meaningful touch, one soul-melting kiss, he has turned her world upside down and transformed her life forever.
She knows he'll do anything for her, including sacrificing all that he holds dear and never letting her go.
But what is she willing to do for him?
Will Bee embrace the unthinkable to keep her man safe and give up her dreams to spend one more night in his arms? Will their passion be enough to satisfy them?
“Hawke?” I hold on to him with the little strength I have left.
“Love,” he says softly, his voice drowsy.
“Stay with me.” I don’t want him to leave, to put himself in danger. “Let someone else take this assignment.”
“There’s no one else.” He nuzzles against my neck, his stubble teasing my skin. “I’m the only person qualified to make these decisions, Belinda.”
“But I thought you were more valuable out of the field.” I look up at him, relaying what Dawg told me.
“Who said I was more valuable out of the field?” Hawke raises his head.
“Is it true?” I counter, not willing to betray a confidence.
He gazes at me for one, two heartbeats. “Yeah, it’s true,” he admits. “There are decisions I’m solely responsible for and duties I can perform better than anyone else, tasks that will reduce my team’s risks and save lives.”
He’s been thinking about what we discussed yesterday. Warmth spreads across my chest. He listened to me. “And you don’t mind completing these tasks?”
“I prefer to focus on them.” Hawke’s lips twist. “My specialty was intelligence, not reconnaissance.”
I stare blankly at him, not knowing the difference between the two.
“I’d rather uncover a hostile’s identity and prevent incidents than deal with the fallout,” he clarifies, dragging his scarred knuckles along my cheekbones.
His touch isn’t able to distract me. I’m wide awake and freaking the hell out. “Are you telling me you’re not even trained to take these missions?” I push against his chest, attempting to get away from my suicidal man. “You’ll die, get yourself blown up.”
“I’m a marine. I’m trained for any combat situation.” Hawke won’t allow me to move him. “And I won’t die.”
“No, you won’t.” I wiggle under him. “Because you’re not taking this assignment.”
~*REVIEW BY JODIE RAE*~
Oh my! Oh my! I can’t believe this is the second to last book! What am I going to do with my monthly fix of Nicholas, Bee, and Hawke? I really can’t believe this story is finally going to come to an end. I am still very eager to see who “Friendly” is!!! I will freak out if it’s not Hawke or Nicholas! This book starts off with some serious heat and continues throughout the book, I believe this is the sexiest book yet in this series! Bee struggles with money so much that she tries to escape the apartment looking for a job. Hawke finds out and informs her that she doesn’t need to ever worry about money that he will always care for her. I know in book one I was Team Nicholas and then at the second book I have and still will be Team Hawke. I feel like Nicholas is not done yet, he makes an appearance in this book, in which I kind of wanted to punch Bee. Bee and Hawke have a great thing going and he could ruin it with a silly kiss! In the next book, I am looking forward to see if Bee goes with Nicholas to a work function. I will be very sad when this series ends, but that just means that Cynthia Sax needs to get ready for a new series to work on!!
