This is book #2, in the Black Ops/707 Freedom Series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment, and to avoid spoilers - I recommend reading this series in order.
Emily has been through so much in the past. She is actually surprised to find herself attracted to Jasper in the first place. With her future looking uncertain, she is cautious in her reaction to him.
Jasper is made of protective alpha male. Even if he didn't work in a dangerous field, he would always want to serve and protect. Now that he needs to protect Emily, his chance with her has arrived. Now, if only he can convince her.
This book was kind of a slow burn. Even with the fast pace of the story, the romantic and sexy side was kind of like sweet chocolate melting on the tongue. With a sexy weave throughout, the characters really show us how even while life throws you a curve, that love can heal. I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
