My Review

Once again Toni Anderson has sucked me into a another story. She has a way of grabbing your attention and never letting go. I have turned into such a fan of Toni Anderson and her romantic suspense novels. If you haven’t tried out the genre or read any of her books, well trust me, ITS TIME.

Alex Parker is finally having the dreams he always thought were unattainable come true. He is just a week away from marrying the beautiful FBI agent Mallory when he gets reminded of his past as an assassin. Jane Sanders asked Alex for help in kidnapping her daughter back who was taken by her ex-husband a few years ago. As an expecting father, Alex can’t help but sympathize and decides to go across seas to get her.

The last night anyone expect was for a massive arms deal to be taking place and every high profile wanted felon to be on site. Alex has no choice but to call in back up but will it be enough? With only a couple days to the wedding Mallory and Alex both start to wonder if Alex will be able to make it to the wedding or if he will be even alive.

Talk about suspense! Everything that could go wrong, went wrong. The unexpected kept happened and all I could do was keep turning pages to find out what would happen next. It felt like my heart was torn between wanting Alex to go home to his pregnant soon to be wife and saving the mother and child. Such a good read!!
