Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from Rock Star Lit and the author.  I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.  I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255:  "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising".


When Maddie Carter comes back from the grave, will Hawk have a fresh start with the one who got away?

Deep Six pilot, former Army Nightstalker, Rhett Hawkins, knew the day would come, but he had hoped it wouldn't be until after he was gone. Maddie Carter was destined to die young, because that is just how she lived. She flew by the seat of her pants and flying as all she cared about. He'd learned that the hard way, when he asked her to marry him and she shot him down.

But after her memorial service, Hawk just couldn't get past the feeling that something was wrong with the recounting of the events that led to the crash and her supposed death. Neither the helo or her body had been found. It drove him insane until he decided to do some investigation of his own. After getting conflicting stories from two surviving special operators, he knew he had to go the full distance to settle his mind.

Once in Central America, Hawk realizes there is much more going on than the Army knows. Not only is the now blacked-out military helicopter back in service, Maddie is behind the stick making drug runs for a brutal cartel.

When he has to convince her she needs to be rescued, Hawk sees she is not the same. Captain Maddie Carter is scarred, hardened and has no memory of him or her former life at all.

Back home, when her memory starts to return and secrets are revealed, could it mean he'd only rescued her to lose her again? Would those secrets change his own life forever too?

My Thoughts:

Madeline “Maddie” Carter wants to impress her father.  Rhett Hawkins has feelings of regret and loss.  Theirs is one of the toughest and thankless jobs there is.  Until we can walk in his or her shoes no one has the right to have anything negative to say.  This was a tough read because of everything that Maddie has had to endure.

If you’ve seen the commercials for the Wounded Warrior Project, this story is a great incentive to make a donation.  Maybe in honor of a loved one that’s served.  We all need to help those that have made the ultimate sacrifice.  It’s a great way to show we care.

This was a story that made me very mad.  Some men are real jerks – and that’s the printable version.  If he weren’t a fictional character…  I’ll let you fill in the blank.  Just shows this author knows what she’s doing.  She’s also created a great champion in Rhett and Maddie’s brother Max.  Another great champion came in the package of one Colonel Claire Wright.  Had me wishing that I was there so I could also show my support.

This was my first encounter with this series and it left me wondering why I’ve never heard of it before.  That’s one great thing about following or finding a tour; you find both new authors and new books.  And it leaves you hankering for more.  I'm afraid that I got hooked and didn't put it down until I was done.  I look forward to discovering more of the Deep Six Security series.
