Description from goodreads :

 He’d protect her from any threat…
But what if the biggest threat is him?

Doctor Anne Nichols is back in Oak Creek, Wyoming, only because she has no other options. Here, she was always the shy, stuttering girl, invisible to everyone.

Except Zac Mackay. The very reason she left in the first place.

Zac’s years in Special Forces taught him survival skills, and he’s created a company—Linear Tactical—to teach those skills to others, so they never have to live in fear.

Then why is Annie, the last person he’d ever want to hurt, afraid of him?

Zac’s determined to wipe the fear from the eyes of the woman who has never been far from his mind. And fix the mistakes—his mistakes—that put that look there in the first place.

But a predator has set his sights on Annie. And now survival skills will become much more than lessons…

My opinion:
          Very good book that deserve reading in one sitting.....so i'm more than glad to have taken the time because the tension at some point had me glued to the book not caring the time. It's an excellent start for a new series...we got to learn a little about the other members of the team which i'm sure we will meet again later - i'm quite fond of poor suffering Dorian, Finn i like but until i learn more about his history i keep reservation-.

In this story we focus on Zac , ex military, founder of Linear tactical...who got his share of unfairness and suffering while loosing his wife and son for example. That could have made him revenful but no and i admire that.....he sure has faults but deep down he is a very good man with excellent teaching skills.
Soon after his wife death he made an error......and forgot the worst of it...however when Anne appears after 6y he isn't expecting fear in her eyes and definitively plan to learn the why and correct the situation.

Anne was best friend with Becky, Zac's wife, since school....;she is shy and despite having and hard childhood she grow up to be a strong woman and an excellent doctor. She always loved studying and books so beside Becky and Zac she was nearly invisible to others when they were not joking because she had a speech problem. However, in his grief Zac hurt her more than she could have imagined and she took his words to heart and flew to another state never planning to be back...life decided otherwise and she is trying to make the most of it.  Seeing Zac after all that time terrifies her  but soon she must face worse as a rapist is on the loose and while she is helping victims, Zac works on finding the culprit...proximity makes it hard to keep secrets....

Really the story is captivating and the tension, the violence is well balanced with the cute moments like the puppies or the exchanges between Zac and his best friends/brothers.

i've read this in one sitting and really i can't wait for next book to be out! If you want a great romance suspense this is one for you.

Score:  5/5

Description from goodreads :

 Quinn Sutherland, second in command of the Tribe, a group of powerful telepaths, has always been certain of who and what he is — one of the good guys. All he wants is to keep his friends safe — no easy feat when everyone in the world is after them. While on a rescue mission, he meets a mysterious FBI agent, who appears to know a lot about them, and seems to want the same thing he does. But her assignment could literally mean the death of him…

When Melody Lyons is inducted into the Federation’s elite Time Control Unit, it’s the pinnacle of her ambitions. Only when she’s sent back to the twenty-first century to eliminate a group of rogue time travelers, she never guesses she’ll fall for a man who died two thousand years ago… Quinn awakens emotions she hadn’t known existed, and for the first time, her loyalties are tested.

My opinion:
          Facinating!!! i really loved this book it follow the series completely so it's really better read in order but could catch the interest even if you are new to the series thanks to the  info given to secondary characters that creates the whole background story we need to understand the story. It was captivating!
Quinn is a character i love; he is honest and really a good soul so all the treachery really hit him hard. He is dedicated to keep his friends safe but with enemies turning allies and the opposite it's getting harder and harder.
When he meets Mel, he does think she is from the good side and while he want to trust her the fact he can't  get into her mind make him doubt he can while the attraction is more than present....

Melody is a hard working woman, she did all she could to achieve her dreams and she succeeded so following the rules are capital for her but while meeting Quinn she discovers feelings, forgotten in the future, and the rules.....to save him she is willing to go against them if necessary.

I really loved to continue the series and we go deeper in the story each time....this time we learn more about the past and about the future and if it get confusing for the characters i admit it can also be the case for the reader so many possibilities or consequences...hard to know what should be done or not but we do enjoy the ride a lot^^

The rhythm is perfect, we meet or learn about precedent characters so the links isn't broken, it's a rollercoaster of emotions and really  it was perfect only the cliffhanger at the end was a bit too hard for me^^ so i can't wait for next book that won't be released soon enough i fear^^

Score:  4/5
