About the Book

Jake Silver may not be able to put the memories of his time as a sniper and Navy SEAL behind him, but at least he can put his skills to use as a part of the Jones Inc. rescue team. Saving the life of pediatric heart surgeon Dr. Aria Sinclair on Denali helped too. Now he can’t get her out of his head, and when he hears she is in the path of a hurricane down in Key West he can’t help but jump on a plane to rescue her.

Aria has dedicated her life to helping children born with defective hearts. After all, she was one of those children. Now driven to succeed, she lives a lonely, stressful life. One she would have lost on Denali if it hadn’t been for Jake. Jake is exciting and handsome, but he’s also dangerous, and she’s already lost one person she loves. She can’t bear it again.

It’s not until she finds herself trapped in the middle of a category 4 hurricane that she can admit she needs Jake desperately. With their very survival in the balance, can they hope for a second chance at life . . . and love?

 

My Thoughts

This is the second book in an amazingly intense series by the talented Susan May Warren. I had not known what to expect when I read the first one. It was not so much a mystery as a story of man against nature. This one goes right along with the first one, and is another great read. Well, this book, in addition to that whole ‘man against the elements’ plot does in fact have some elements of mystery in it as well. And I loved it.

When I sit down to write reviews for a book such as this one, I always struggle with coming up with the right words to say. I don’t want to give spoilers, but yet, I want to convey the depth and feeling this book gave to me.

Jake and Aria. They had a connection, there on Denali. And yet, both of them tell themselves, and each other, that it was nothing. They both want to believe it. That is where this story begins.

Aria heads to Key West for a vacation. And she finds herself in the middle of a terrible hurricane. Jake finds out that she is right in the path of the storm, and impulsively flies to her rescue.

Jake is such an amazing hero. In spite of his issues, which he is forced to deal with, he has to learn to accept himself for the person God made him. Which allows him to be the kindhearted and caring hero he really is meant to be.

Being in such extreme danger has a way of bringing things out in the open that would otherwise stay hidden. This book has that danger. The kind that leaves you sitting on the edge of your seat, flipping pages as fast as you can possibly read them.

Then, as I mentioned already, there is also a mystery woven into this story. I won’t go into any more details here, but just to say it had me hooked. And completely unsure of what would happen next.

If you are looking for an intense and action packed story, then be sure and read this one!
