This book picked up right where book 2 left off.  Mostly revolving around Christian, Rick and Elliot.  The kidnapping story continues.  loved how Christian stayed with Rick with his memory gone.  The story took a turn that I didn’t expect.  Not sure when I got done reading it, if I liked the turn it took or not.  It just surprised me.

It was a very quick addition to book 2 that leaves you with a cliffhanger again. The storyline is very good and keeps you wanting to read more.  I’ll have to make sure to watch for book 4 to find out what happens next.



*Leaving out comments on editing due to ARC being unedited version*
I have to say I liked the way the three men came together in this story although I didn’t feel there was much progression in the story minus the fact that they got Elliot’s daughter back.
This one felt more like a love story than the mercenary feel of the previous two in the series. Although I think the focus on Rick’s medical stuff was necessary to understand the pain that both Elliot and Christian felt and the guilt that they both had something to do with it in one way or another.
That being said though, I felt like once again we were being told the story instead of shown. I didn’t feel any connection to any of the men and what they were going through as there was emotions lacking all around. There were also jumps in tense from present to past that hindered the flow of the story for me.
And being as I have a background in the medical field I can say that the entire hospital scene was completely wrong, but for the sake of the story I tried to let it go.
We are left with another cliffhanger, but I have to say I’m not sure that I’ll feel as propelled to pick up the next segment since I don’t feel like I connected enough to feel the need to know how things work out.
