It’s a good thing Gabe Bristow lives and breathes the Navy SEAL credo, “the only easy day was yesterday,” because today, his life is unrecognizable. When his prestigious career comes to a crashing halt, he’s left with a bum leg and few prospects for employment that don’t include a desk.
That is, until he’s offered the chance to command a private hostage rescue team and free a wealthy American businessman from Colombian paramilitary rebels. It seems like a good deal—until he meets his new team: a drunk Cajun linguist, a boy-genius CIA threat analyst, an FBI negotiator with mob ties, a cowboy medic, and an EOD expert as volatile as the bombs he defuses. Oh, and who could forget the sexy, frustratingly impulsive Audrey Van Amee? She’s determined to help rescue her brother—or drive Gabe crazy. Whichever comes first.
As the death toll rises, Gabe’s team of delinquents must figure out how to work together long enough to save the day. Or, at least, not get themselves killed. Because Gabe’s finally found something worth living for, and God help him if he can’t bring her brother back alive.

Other Book in Series:
Wow! I wasn’t sure where this book was headed, but from the opening chapters you are drawn to the many characters and invested in finding more about each of them.
When Gabe Bristow is unable to stay a SEAL due to injuries, he forms HORNET (Hostage Rescue and Negotiation Team) with another Seal buddy and what seems to be a rag tag bunch of experts from different fields. I can’t wait to find more about all of them in future books!
Their first mission is to rescue a rich American businessman, they didn’t expect to literally run into his little sister Audrey when they reach Colombia. The immediate sparks between Gabe & Audrey are on fire!
I loved that Audrey isn’t a weak heroine always looking for the boys to save her and that Gabe is still such a commanding Alpha even with his injury.
I can’t wait to read the next in this series!
One of my favorite quotes…
“As a SEAL, he was trained to handle most anything an enemy could throw at him, but a hysterical woman? What the fuck was he supposed to do with her?”
