Story Overview:
He saw her die in a vision… 

Before five years ago, Gabriel had never met Vega, but he knows how she's going to die. He knows he'll be involved... unless he can make sure they never meet, never cross paths, so that his vision will never come true. So he left his pack behind, joined the Stavros pack and was determined to never let that future play out. To never meet her at all. Fate had other plans—and she walked right into his life when he least expected it. For the last five years he’s avoided Vega whenever possible even while trying to keep an eye on her. But when she gets cagey with her pack and disappears, he has no choice but to follow her. Now, circumstances are forcing them to work together and he’s determined to protect her against any threat. If that means dying for her, he’s more than willing to. But she doesn’t want his protection. If anything, she’s determined to prove she’s stronger than everyone thinks. 

She’s writing her own future… 

Vega isn’t the same moody teenager who came to live with the Stavros pack all those years ago. With college behind her, she’s been recruited by a division of the government’s supernatural Black Ops. Trained and more than ready for her first mission, she doesn’t expect Gabriel to crash her assignment. To save her cover, they pretend to be a couple. But soon lines are blurred and neither can deny the incendiary attraction between them. As they race to stop a man who wants to sell out their people to the highest bidder, they find themselves fighting for a future together. With time running out, she has no choice but to rely on the irresistible male who’s turned her world upside down. Unfortunately, in order to save the woman he loves, Gabriel has to give her up. 

Length: NOVEL 

My Review:
Overview: 4.5
Narrator: 4.25
Story: 4.5

I love that for this book, the author has taken us full circle. In the very first book about Vega's parents, she was still just a teenager. But now she's really come into her own and is branching out into her options...options that mom and dad probably won't approve of. But it's for sure that her mentor and sometimes bodyguard, Gabriel, won't approve. But with his history, Gabriel is the first one to really recognize that Vega might be into something over her head. 

But for the last couple of years, Gabriel has tried to separate himself from Vega. She pulls at him more than any other female ever has, but he knows if he gives in, it will cost Vega her very life. 

I have to say I like the way this story played out. There were a lot of little twists and turns that I didn't see coming. It made for a great audio listen that I managed to devour in pretty much a single day just because I didn't want to step away from the story. 

I highly recommend it...and the entire series. The audiobooks have been highly enjoyable and I've loved immersing myself into this world the last couple of months. Jeffrey Kafer is an incredible narrator and the stories are simply good entertainment. 

Definitely recommend!
