My Review:

Joe is obsessed with finding out who killed his friend Bryan Tompkins (Stephanie's older brother and teammate) fifteen years ago.  He cuts all ties with Stephanie and his teammates to protect them when he finds information that a conspiracy originated in Sierre Leona.

Stephanie works at NSA as drone worker when her friend shows her a picture of a beaten Joe dated a month ago.  She knows she can't just sit around and do nothing so she pulls a few strings to see Joe who is malnourished and in bad shape.  He's broken physically and mentally and not to happy to see Stephanie.

I liked how Joe knows that he broke Stephanie's heart when he broke up with her and feels remorse.  He loves her but he can't let the ones who killed her brother and his friend to live.

Stephanie loves Joe, has always supported and stood by him and always accepted things his way.  Loved the way Stephanie took charge this time and she finds out she's stronger than she thinks she is.

Too bad we didn't see the rest of the team because they were away on a mission and didn't get back until the very end.  Loved the get together at the end and the interactions between the teammates and wives/friends.

This book has a ton of action, suspense, well written characters, incredible storyline and vile villains.
