Kristi Hartinger has come to terms with her life as a single, thirty-something woman. She was in love . . . once. But following her boyfriend's tragic death, no one else could capture her heart. And nothing else could fill that void, though the serenity of the ocean came close. Two years ago, Kristi left the craziness of her Wall Street career behind and embraced a simpler life on her family's private island off the coast of Maine. As a resident of the small beach community, she anticipates a quiet future—until she comes face-to-face with her past.

Ace Samson is dead, or so the world believes. As a member of a secret organization known as the guardians, he was forced to fake his death years ago, leaving everything behind when he became an agent. So when he is selected to offer a potential new recruit a job with the organization, Ace braces himself: for the first time in more than a decade, he must face the woman he loved—and left.

Kristi's world is rocked by Ace's sudden reappearance, and she's soon drawn into his world of danger and cover-up. But when Kristi herself becomes a target, Ace will do whatever it takes to protect the only woman he has ever loved.

It's been a while since I've read a Traci Hunter Abramson book and this one reminded me why I love them so much! I was hooked from the beginning. Ace Samson has been dead for twenty years, but the secret government agency he works for would like to employ his former girlfriend, Kristi. His coming back into her life is just as dramatic as it sounds--she is elated that he is alive and then angry that he's led her to believe he's been dead for twenty years. Their relationship is complicated and they have plenty to work out.

Kristi lives on an island and there are issues she needs to deal with. Kade and Renee from Safe House come to help them figure out what's going on so she will be free to work with the guardians. It was fun to catch up with them and see what they're up to, and I felt safer when they were around.

This book is full of action and twists and turns. I thought I had things figured out and then realized I didn't, so I had to keep turning pages to find out what would happen next. Even though it's part of a series and there are characters from other books, it works well as a standalone. This is a another fantastic novel by Traci Hunter Abramson and I'm already looking forward to her next one!

Traci Hunter Abramson was born in Arizona, where she lived until moving to Venezuela for a study-abroad program.
