Jack Bryant left the Special Forces to begin his private investigation business. Pulling together like-minded men from the CIA, FBI, ATF, DEA, Border Patrol, SEALs, and police, they were devoted to the missions that no one else wanted or could solve.
When the Campus Killer strikes again, Jack’s team is tasked by the Governor to find the killer, using whatever means they can.
While following the trail of the serial killer, he becomes entangled in the life of the beautiful woman living next to his property.
Bethany Bridwell moved in with her grandmother to take over running Mountville Cabin Rentals. She had no time for the handsome, mysterious man living next door who continued to intrude into her life…and her thoughts.
Jack battled his growing feelings for Bethany, worried his life would not allow for the white-picket-fence world she deserved. But he was unable to stay away.
When the trail of the Campus Killer strikes close to home, can Jack protect Bethany long enough to give her what she needs?

“twisty mystery & great romance!”
I’ve been intrigued by Jack’s story since he was introduced in the Alvarez Security series. His story is not one of tragedy, which was kind of refreshing. Not that tragic backgrounds are bad! But it was nice that both he & Bethany grew up with loving parents, and the issues they had were, idk, more normal? Like, Bethany is taking care of her grandmother who has developed Alzheimer’s. Jack has spent his career in the military & has now opened his own security business. And his case is gruesome, and it gives him pause in starting a relationship even to their chemistry is RIGHT THERE.
But their stories intersect very well & the serial killer case was very interesting! There are also quite a few suspects & some “aha!” moments, which I really enjoyed. All in all, a great read from one of my favorite authors!! : )
