Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from Barclay Publicity 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".


A photograph.  A feeling. A knowing.  That’s all it took for Dante “Zed” Zaragoza to realize his fate was intertwined with a woman he’d never met.  Now it was up to him to find Marcia Price and bring her home safely.  Thankfully for Marcia he’s temporarily part of the Black Dawn SEAL team, who are on the hunt to locate eleven people whose yacht had gone missing in the South China Sea.  A photograph means she’s alive…for now. 


Marcia Price realized she was in the hands of a monster as she was dragged deeper and deeper into the jungle. She wanted to give up so many times but dammit, no matter what, she would survive this even if it almost killed her.  And maybe, just maybe, the universe would send her a hero. 


Zed’s blood turned to ice the moment he found out the history of the man who had Marcia in his grip. He wasn’t just a sociopath, he’d been trained as a SEAL.  And that was only the beginning.  Zed would need every tool in his arsenal if he and Marcia were going to get out of there alive


My Thoughts:

Marcia Price isn’t sure what the future will hold.  I kept getting the impression that she doesn’t know how to swear – she gives a more “dainty” swear word.  She’s very resourceful and able to think on her feet.  Dante “Zed” Zaragoza is doing a job by the seat of his pants.  With the state of our world today, you can almost picture this actually happening to someone. 

One thing I loved about this story is that the author seemed to let the story develop.  The scenes weren’t rushed and our characters were going to take us right along with wherever they went.  Not at any time did I feel that you needed to read the previous books in order to enjoy this latest in the Black Dawn series.  To keep me riveted the author created a secondary character named Raymond.  He’s totally twisted and we don’t know everything about him but I could picture him as a villain on Criminal Minds.

By the time I finished the book I knew that I look forward to reading more by this author and more of this series. I wanted to know more about the team that Zed works with.  The ending was happy but really couldn’t tell if it was a happily ever after.  Maybe it’s because this is part of a series and I’ll get to see our main characters again.  Can’t tell you anything about a next book for Black Dawn but the author certainly has enough other books available that I can check out in the meantime.

Caitlyn O’Leary is an avid reader, and considers herself a fan first and an author second. She reads a wide variety of genres, but finds herself going back to happily-ever-afters. Getting a chance to write, after years in corporate America is a dream come true. She hopes that her stories provide the kind of entertainment and escape that she has found from some of her favorite authors.
