Talon

I surf.
I fuck.
I pretend to smile.

Two years ago my life was perfect, until it wasn’t. I scattered my wife’s ashes then walked away from the Marines. I didn’t think I had anything left to lose.

I was wrong.

The blond showed up at my surf shop, beaten and stabbed. I did what I was trained to do—I stitched her up. I didn’t have a clue who she was and I told myself I didn’t care. Until they came looking for her.

I swore I’d take my last breath before I let anyone else hurt her except I didn’t know she was keeping a deadly secret. Now I had two choices, her life or mine.

Marriage and combat taught me the same thing—I was no one’s hero. And I was about to prove it.






I didn’t know until I started reading this book that it was a spin off series from the ‘Unchecked’ series. This is a peeve for me as I hate it when I don’t know it beforehand. I feel as if I’ve missed something and that I need to back track and read the others. I didn’t with this book.

This was a nice quick read that was easy to read and sucked you into the story but and this is just my personal opinion, most of the heroes in books like these become game changers. Which I’m slightly irritated by.

This had the possessive hero in all his glory although he didn’t want it as he thought that he had already lost too much to care but he is wrong.

The heroine has secrets but the Hero gets to the bottom of things. They are instantly attracted to one another but the one thing that annoyed me was that she just stabbed someone and she’d been stabbed and they decide to go at it? Ah she has been stabbed dude! That shit has got to hurt.

Every time I thought that we were then getting somewhere then something would arise which frustrated me.

I can only say that in this case it is not the author or the book but me and that isn’t just a line. So please be aware that this is my opinion on this review and can only be taken at face value.
