Former pararescue jumper Orion Starr is haunted by the memory of a rescue gone wrong. He may be living alone in Alaska now, but the pain of his failure–and his injuries–has followed him there from Afghanistan. He has no desire to join Hamilton Jones’s elite rescue team, but he also can’t shirk his duty when the call comes in to rescue three lost climbers on Denali.
Former CIA profiler and psychiatrist Jenny Calhoun’s yearly extreme challenge with her best friends is her only escape from the guilt that has sunk its claws into her. As a consultant during a top-secret mission to root out the Taliban, she green-lighted an operation that ended in ambush and lives lost. When her cathartic climb on Denali turns deadly, she’ll be forced to trust her life and the lives of her friends to the most dangerous of heroes–the man she nearly killed.
Her skills and his experience are exactly what’s needed to prevent another tragedy–but in order to truly set Orion free from his painful past, Jenny will have to reveal hers. They’ll have to put their wounds behind them to survive, but at what cost?
Leap into action with this high-octane, breakneck new series from bestselling author Susan May Warren.
Action-packed and full of suspense, this book will leave you wanting to jump right into the next book! I absolutely loved each of the characters, and felt like I was climbing Denali with them. Each character had their own unique back story, and they were all just as easy to love as the rest of them. I found myself gasping and wondering if they were ever going to get off that mountain. Would they be able to rescue their friends in time? Would they ever trust each other again? Would their pasts hinder them from the feelings Orion and Jenny both clearly had for each other, but were denying? As a first book in a series, I’m so glad I can follow the story into the next book when it comes out!! I loved this book, and definitely recommend it! The only thing I think I should warn about is there are a couple points where I thought the romance was getting a bit…shall we say steamier than I would like in a book….nothing ever happens, but it definitely is implied that had something not interrupted it would have happened.
