Publisher's Summary

When the daughter of a White House aide goes missing, the President calls in Zane Lewis and his team of former special forces soldiers to find the missing girl. The Red Team, having a well-earned reputation for being the best, discovers the true motive behind the kidnapping, and all hell breaks loose.

All Olivia Cox wants to do is escape her life. The harder she tries to break free from the pressure and obligations of her stifling family, the faster she sinks into a nightmare of her own making. This latest decision may be the last one she ever makes. Finding herself in a dingy room handcuffed and held prisoner, Olivia becomes an unsuspecting pawn in a game she didn’t know was being played.

Leo “Panther” Gillonardo is a former SEAL who thought he knew the game better than most. He's a professional, a tier one contractor. She’s the mission. Protecting Olivia should be his only objective. So why does he keep finding himself in her bed? Even if she's fully clothed and terrorized by memories of her kidnapping, he knows better and is desperate to keep Olivia at arm's length. As the days pass it becomes nearly impossible to keep his growing attraction under wraps. The stakes are high, and his heart is on the line.

With a drug cartel in hot pursuit, Panther and the Red Team have no choice but to take Olivia on the run. With time running out, Wolf and Abe offer them protection from the deadly warlord Gomez. Alone in Abe's mountain cabin, sparks fly. Giving in seems inevitable, and Olivia must decide if she’s all in or if she’ll fold as Panther plays a no-holds-barred game of the heart.

From the political corruption of Washington, DC to the sunny shores of California, follow Susan Stoker’s Navy SEALs, John “Tex” Keegan, Matthew “Wolf” Steel, and Christopher “Abe” Powers, on a thrill ride when they join the Red Team on an epic mission.

A bit glossed over but it was short afterall

not as hit and steamy as the 1st book and I must admit Carly suited this voice better than jasmins. I liked the plot even though it was fast paced but unlike book 1 there wasn't a sense of cramming it all in so as to lose some depth. although there wasn't a lot if depth here due to the length. a lot if denial on the heroes part then bam! he was on board....very HEA sugar sweet...but that seems to be Riley's mojo. a lot like Susan stoker although Susan doesn't seem to hurry her novels as much and addresses sensitive issues quite tactfully. narrator's are great ..Jason does an awesome job. he, John lane and Aiden snow are right up there with Sebastian York in my opinion .

somewhat short, but a great listen

loved this addition to the series, but wish it had been longer. Clarke and Robbins do a great job bringing the book to life!

short but good

I had originally read the book a while ago and now enjoying the audio version. Good action from the beginning. Its insta-love but they had good chemistry. Simple but good plot. Was written in the SS world so the addition of her characters wasn't appealing to me as I didn't know who they were but you can still follow along. Narrators were great especially Jason Clarke

Fast paced action & love

I read the ebook last year & thoroughly enjoyed the story so jumped at the chance to listen to the audiobook & wasn’t disappointed. Second book in the Red Team series written by the fantastic Riley Edwards. Student Olivia is a pawn in a much bigger game when she is kidnapped. Leo & Red Team swoop in to rescue her, he was the one to free her & they have an instant connection. Leo continues to protect Olivia as he tries to fight his feelings - but once the danger is lifted both are ready to go after what they want. Leo is definitely full on alpha & will stop at nothing to both protect Olivia & make her his. Olivia is likeable, a good girl who lost her way & went off the rails a little, she is honest with herself & her feeling. The story & action is fast paced & well written, very enjoyable especially when narrated by the delicious voice of Jason Clarke, both narrators we’re great but Mr Clarke’s sexy tones just add that extra something.
