Publisher's Summary

It’s been two months since one of our own was killed in front of us. Two months of training and waiting. Time is up, and another new recruit is due to arrive any minute - the cousin of the man who betrayed us all. The guys aren’t going to like it, but my superior has overridden my protests.

Just when I didn’t think things could get any worse, my contact with Aunt Beatrice is discovered, and my actions have put her in mortal danger. A hit was ordered from a cartel in Mexico. Led by the cousin of Diego Fernando’s widow, the Vega Cartel has a blood debt to settle, and they have come to collect. 

Jordon is becoming more attractive to me by the day; as my feelings for him continue to grow, our situation becomes even more complicated when our connection is discovered by one of the team. Events spiral out of my control, forcing me to face my demons and darkest fears. I find myself teetering on the edge of good and evil, poised to fall. 

A sinister message has me racing to Mexico, trying to beat the dawn. What I find waiting for me there may spell the end of my life and Steel Corps itself. 

I must decide; am I hard enough to make this choice? Is my soul a big enough sacrifice for the lives of innocents? There is no question. I am Staff Sergeant Michaels, and I am Steel.

I loved it! This book has so much action and suspense. The narration was excellent. The author does a great job with the character builds and plot. I can't wait to read the next book in this series! I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
