Genre: Contemporary Military Romance
Series: Task Force 779; Book 1
Ryder Morrison is a man of loyalty. To his country, his family, his team.
After joining the Navy, he was secretly recruited to Task Force 779, a specialized unit that infiltrates dangerous situations when no one else can – or will. As the communications expert, it’s his job to clear the way for a smooth mission. He knows where the enemy is hidden at all times and when his team can enter a zone safely.
When things go wrong and he’s captured, declared dead before a search can truly begin, Ryder knows that when he makes his way home, his life will be different … his way home, his life will be different … better. He’ll live for himself from now on, instead of following where duty takes him.
Enter his elusive neighbor …
A woman of mystery and fear.
Codie Ray is a woman filled with pain. Afraid of life and locked away.
She counts to soothe the anxiety. She watches her neighbor because he’s her only lifeline to the outside world. He’s a commitment she doesn’t have to worry will break her. Until the unthinkable happens and her solace is intruded upon. Ryder comes to the rescue and barges his way into her life, pushing past her barriers, causing Codie to rethink her reclusive lifestyle. Slowly being tormented with mind games from an unknown predator, she battles her better judgement and trusts Ryder to do what he does best … hunt down the perpetrator.
Their connection is instantaneous. Two broken people yearning to be loved but afraid to reach for it. Codie fears Ryder will leave when he discovers just how damaged she is. Ryder worries Codie will remain locked away in her mind, unable to break free.
A surprise mission brings both of their fears to life, and when the walls crumble, Ryder is Missing in Action while Codie is just … missing. Will they find each other again or will they disappear, existing only in a memory?
Review by Candy:
K.L. just wanted to start this review with a thank you. You shared something some can’t. This was a great story of two broken people who might be able to fix each other. Codie and Ryder are great characters, each having something horrible happen to them. One determined to get past it and the other trying to cope still. Even though these two have different tragedies they were meant to meet I feel. Can Ryder bring Codie back to life or will she remain in her shell? This story is full of mystery and heartache but well told. I couldn’t put it down. There’s so many intense moments that leave you reeling. A must read!! 5 star read!
