Scorched [Mass Market Paperback]

I've finished reading "Scorched" the 6th book in her series by Laura Griffin.
Product Description

Kelsey Quinn set out to trace a murder victim. Now she may become one.

The dead don’t speak, but Kelsey knows their secrets. As a forensic anthropologist at the Delphi Center crime lab, Kelsey makes it her mission to identify bodies using no more than shards of bone, and her find at a remote Philippines dig hints at a sinister story. When Kelsey’s search for answers puts her at the scene of her ex-fiancé’s murder, only one man can help her. The same man who broke her heart just months before, and who is also a prime suspect. Faced with an ultimatum — Kelsey or his job — Gage Brewer did the only thing a Navy SEAL could . . . but that doesn’t mean he stopped wanting Kelsey. Now Kelsey is running for her life and Gage is her last line of defense. As the threats escalate, Kelsey realizes this conspiracy goes deeper and higher than they could have guessed. With the clock ticking down on a madman’s plot, the slightest misstep will have unthinkable consequences . . . .

My Review:

Kelsey Quinn works at the Delphi Center crime lab as an forensic anthropologist and she makes sure she can ID bodies using no more than tiny pieces of bones.  She finds some bones at a remote Philippines which leads to a sinister story.  Her search leads her to the crime scene of her ex-fiancee's murder and the only man that can save her is the man who broke her heart - Gage Brewer.  When she couldn't compete with his SEAL's job she gave him an ultimatum either it was her or his team.  He picked his team but couldn't understand how she can ask him.  He couldn't leave his team but he has never stopped loving or wanting her.

When Gage learns that Kelsey is missing and on the run it wakes up the protective side of him and he will make sure nothing will harm Kelsey and puts himself in the line of fire.  Now both are on the run from the very people that are suppose to protect her but in the end can they survive?

Gage is determined to show Kelsey their former relationship wasn't just based on sex but he loved her and still does.

We are also introduced to two new characters Derek Vaughn, Gage's team mate and best friend and FBI newbie Elizabeth.  There was a lot of chemistry between them and you could feel it every time they were on the same page.  Derek was a fun loving, caring and loves to joke around while Elizabeth was more serious and wanted to prove herself and gain some experience in her new position.

This book had a smoking hot couple who are given a second chance at love while on a tense and exhilarating journey run from the psycho killers.
