Locked-Down Heart (Combat Hearts Book 3) By Tarina Deaton
This is the continuation of Denise and Chris’s story. The last we saw them Denise had thought he just disappeared after giving him a chance in her life. His position with the FBI takes him on missions where he has to cut off all communication and basically turn into a ghost.
Denise is done with all that, she has enough to deal with being given custody of her cousins and trying to figure out how she is going to not screw them up, since she has a hard time taking care of herself as it is. When Chris returns with his mission to take down the man that as it turns out is the young cousins father who is supposed to be in prison but got out early and has skipped parole. Denise’s life focus has changed and the children have become everything to her, and she will go to any length to protect them. That includes not allowing Chris to use them as bait to catch their father.
Now that he’s back he wants to pick back up with Denise where they left off, but Denise is sick of being an afterthought and isn’t keen on allowing him back in.
This was an amazing story, I love this author and her style of pulling a story together. I loved the twists and turns and the danger factor that was present in this story. Sprocket was still one of my favorite parts as well as the friendship bond between Bree and Denise, I love the snarky one liners and the love and support these two share. This author has risen to being one of my new favorite authors and I will read anything she comes out with.
Loved Loved Loved It!!!
