Kyle Hawthorne once believed his future would be a job in the private sector—a simple, normal life. Fate had other plans and he wound up in the military. Some newly discovered talents caught the eye of the CIA, and in no time he was working with a covert team. He found himself in a relationship with fellow operative, Julia—until she turned out to be the enemy. When her betrayal was uncovered, things got bloody and Kyle returned home broken, searching for a chance to walk the road not taken.
MaeBe Vaughan has never been interested in normal. Her happy place is a dark corner of the Internet, where she disrupts all the bad guys. She has a great circle of friends and a full life. She doesn’t need a man. Until Kyle Hawthorne walked into her life. He’s all wrong for her. Surly. Damaged. His uncle is her boss. But she couldn’t help getting close to him. When his past threatened her safety, Kyle walked out without saying good-bye.
Kyle will do anything to keep MaeBe safe. He faked his death, hid in the middle of nowhere, and watched over her from afar. But when Julia resurfaces, he knows that to protect MaeBe, he’ll have to get close. So close that if they manage to survive, he will never let her go.
Overall, a captivating read, and a grand addition to the series. ~ Shadow – Simply Love Books
We’ve had glimpses of Kyle Hawthorne and Maebe Vaugn in previous books in the Masters and Mercenaries series and now they get their own story.
The first part of The Dom Who Came in from the Cold is a flash back to how the two met and why Kyle pretended he was dead. The remainder of the book is a roller coaster ride of suspense and intrigue as the McKay-Taggart team try to take out Kyle’s former girlfriend, who is an agent for the Consortium, an evil group of business people who are ruthless about making money. Julia is obsessed with Kyle and wants him back. Maebe isn’t sure she wants him back-but definitely doesn’t want him in Julia’s clutches. Both Maebe and Kyle need some introspection into their pasts if they are going to make this relationship work.
We also get some glimpses into the future of some of the kids in the family. Kala is turning out to be every bit the badass she showed promise of as a toddler.
Overall, a captivating read, and a grand addition to the series.
