Description from goodreads :

 They have known and loved each other for years, but they have never met ... until now.
When Cristián Peña and the entire town of Pascuallita vanish, Chloe Masters, former hacker and free spirit, races to the war-torn island to find the man who saved her life years ago. She has never met Cristián in person, yet she loves him, anyway.

There’s a drone carrying a dirty bomb, heading for the Whitehouse. No one knows who is controlling the drone. Cristián and Chloe, with their extraordinary talents, just might be able to stop it.

Cristián lives under the shadow of his famous older brother Duardo, which makes him doubt everything, including his feelings for Chloe. Cristián must find a way to step out of that shadow, if he is to save his family, the people of Pascuallita, Vistaria ... and Chloe.

My opinion:
          An excellent conclusion. We follow Cristian and Chloe who we met several time in precedent books and we learn not only how they met but a lot about their childhood which is a big help to understand them in the current situation. I admit i wouldn't have loved the young Chloe her choice of lifestyle is against mine but she became a very good soul and never hesitate to put herself in danger or share what she had invented in hope to save people that i admire. Cristian has some self esteem issue but when time asks for it he becomes the leader he can be.

In this story we see how deep the inssurectos have become depraved: abduction of civilians, torture, bordellos.....no war is clean but at this point it can't even be called war.  That forces people to make choice and if i can understand a few i must say i wouldn't be as forgiving as Calli toward the other captives.

The rhythm is fast as our heroes are facing a real countdown and we get to see the situation from several locations and point of view as the family is divided some in america some in mexico, two or 3 groups ( if Nick counts as one group he sure does enough damage alone) in Vistaria....All their actions are linked thanks to Chloe invention and we follow them without any trouble.

There are a lot of tension;some moment fear is edging in our heart but  thankfully the author does delivers and happy ending as we discover the after of each living characters.... a great way to end the series

Score:  4/5

Description from goodreads :

  He has to shut down the terrorists or lose everything. Including the woman who's become a target.

Omega Sector: Critical Response agent Derek Waterman is hunting some very bad men. After weeks of chasing cold leads, he has found the evidence that could expose the architects of a lethal terrorist bombing. But before Derek can start busting bad guys, he needs help from Dr. Molly Humphries, Omega's lead forensic scientist.

Molly works to retrieve the data—and overcome her debilitating crush on the super agent. And Derek carefully suppresses his mutual smoldering attraction, sure that his dark past will drive Molly away. But when Molly's kidnapped, Derek will stop at nothing to save her. Even if a lethal enemy will do everything to keep him from doing so.

My opinion:
          I was looking for a good romance suspense when i came across this one and it's so good i want to continue the series even if this is a stand alone. Really it was super, the investigation, the characters all fit perfectly so that you were immersed in the story and not wanting to make a break but you could still take one if needed without feeling distressed.

Molly is a character i love, she is stronger than she looks, she is compassionate, intelligent and also vulnerable. She is important for the team even if she doesn't exactly see herself as part of it while staying in the lab. She puts her work before her life because for her each case is important...
Derek i want to strangle him a bit but with all he is confronted to i will allow him a reprieve^^ i mean he is deeply attracted to Molly but wants to take his distance for her wellbeing without in fact thinking about what she could be feeling  even once...worse he tends to redo the same mistake even after seeing what he did. he has good intentions though and he is really loyal going all the way to save her.

The whole team is interesting but this really focus on Derek and Molly so Liam and Jon are  a little put aside but hopefully they will get their time as they are courageous and funny!

The investigation was well done with a lot of twists and even better....vilains get what they deserve! i love when they don't get it easy after all the evil they have done.

really a good romance suspense to recommend

Score:  4/5
