Action packed. very good read keeps you interested.

Single, independant woman forces her to turn to someone for help, something she is not comfortable with. A ruthless killer with her in his sights.

This is my favorite Iris Johansen book by far. I loved it. Elena is one of the best characters I have encountered. Strong, independent, troubled, but with strong maternal instincts. Galen is funny and appreciates her for what she is. If you like books with a strong female lead, and a character you will very much like, this is the one for you. A million stars!

Interesting characters make this a very good romantic suspense book. The heroien is a strong-willed woman who will do anything to protect her son. The hero is a mercenary who sees her for what she is. Great on-the-run suspense.

SUSPENSEFUL AND EXCITING
reviewed No One to Trust on + 83 more book reviews
Helping Elena is Sean Galen, but their efforts to keep her son safe are thwarted by Chavez\'s determination to get his son by any means. He sends hitman to kill those protecting her and offers staggering amounts of money to bribe anyone--the identity of the final betrayer certainly comes as a shock. Amid the battle, the romance between Elena and Galen is believable, but the secondary characters of Dominic, Jared etc added to the book\'s readability. It was also nice to mention her past characters- logan.

This book was a combination of adventure, romance, suspence and is a great book to read! Can\'t wait for her next!
