Series: ARES Security #1
Published by Zebra on December 29th 2015
Genres: Romantic Suspense
From the hellhole of a Taliban prison to sweet freedom, five brave military heroes have made it home—and they’re ready to take on the civilian missions no one else can. Individually they’re intimidating. Together they’re invincible. They’re the men of ARES Security.
Rafe Vargas is only in Newton, Iowa, to clear out his late grandfather’s small house. As the covert ops specialist for ARES Security, he's eager to get back to his new life in Texas. But when he crosses paths with Annie White, a haunted beauty with skeletons in her closet, he can't just walk away—not when she’s clearly in danger…
There’s a mysterious serial killer on the loose with a link to Annie’s dark past. And the closer he gets, the deeper Rafe’s instinct to protect kicks in. But even with his considerable skill, Annie’s courage, and his ARES buddies behind him, the slaying won’t stop. Now it’s only a matter of time before Annie’s next—unless they can unravel a history of deadly lies that won’t be buried.
The ladies enjoyed February’s Romantic Suspense selection, Kill Without Mercy, and felt that it was a solid first book for the series. As the first book, there were a lot of characters to introduce, which made the flow a little difficult for some of the readers. Some would have liked to see even more of a connection between the male characters, while others appreciated that it felt like typical male friendships. The ladies enjoyed the book and felt it ended really strong, making them eager to pick up the next book.
The average rating was 3.5 stars.
