A tortured hero with a heart of gold
Growing up on the streets of Rio de Janeiro, Javier Almeida has only his older sister to protect him. When she's sold to a human-trafficker, he vows to hunt down those responsible.
Years later, Titan Group's Delta team finds him, tattooed and brawling, a vigilante protector with information they want. They take him in and train him, working him harder than a man should be driven, until he's a soldier harboring an obsession. Ready for revenge, Javier ghosts his way across the globe, tracking the men who took his sister and working elite private security jobs.
Meets sweet and sassy
Jilted at the altar, Sophia Cole turns the reception into a one-woman party. She's intent on devouring all the cake and champagne, so she can bask in the calories she's been avoiding. In the midst of the revelry, he walks in, the one man she can never ignore.
Javier is her older brother's black ops teammate - an automatic Do Not Go There. But if there's one thing better than fondant and a buzz to ease the wounds of a cheating fiancé, it might be a one-night stand with a South American military man.
Javier didn't expect to see Sophia again. He never thought he would even want to see her again. He shouldn't have touched her, but his mind won't stay away from her.
Now, Sophia Cole is thousands of miles away from the safety of her parents' lavish estate and working alongside him in hell. She's a staffer at an embassy, and he's there to keep them alive. There are bombs and bullets and blood-hungry enemies.
And then she's taken. Gone. Just like his sister. But so much worse.

Revenge is not always as important as we think
I really enjoy the Delta/ Titan series and was looking forward to this one. I love the banter between the delta team, I had a couple of chuckles. I also like the mix of action and romance.
During the epilogue a letter is read that was extremely heartfelt, it made me choke up a little,
Javier, everyone likes a damaged hero, right? His character development felt the most real and Kafer really made you connect with the character, the accent was spot on and really made it feel authentic.
It was, unfortunately work got in the way, so I made do with listening to it in two sittings.
Javier is haunted by his past and seeks revenge, Sophia is his team-mates sister who gets herself in some pretty difficult situations - when they get together it creates a passionate and steamy romance. Cristin Harber is once again on fine form, not many people can write and create a world like she can. I'm itching for more.
