From the hellhole of a Taliban prison to sweet freedom, five brave military heroes have made it home—and they’re ready to take on the civilian missions no one else can. Individually they’re intimidating. Together they’re invincible. They’re the men of ARES Security.
Rafe Vargas is only in Newton, Iowa, to clear out his late grandfather’s small house. As the covert ops specialist for ARES Security, he’s eager to get back to his new life in Texas. But when he crosses paths with Annie White, a haunted beauty with skeletons in her closet, he can’t just walk away—not when she’s clearly in danger…
There’s a mysterious serial killer on the loose with a link to Annie’s dark past. And the closer he gets, the deeper Rafe’s instinct to protect kicks in. But even with his considerable skill, Annie’s courage, and his ARES buddies behind him, the slaying won’t stop. Now it’s only a matter of time before Annie’s next—unless they can unravel a history of deadly lies that won’t be buried.

As a series Junkie, I always look for a new series to add to my TBR pile. And knowing that one of my favorite authors was about to release a new series, I took a chance at NetGalley if they could permit me to read her book.
~And then they said “Request Accepted”.
I was so happy at that time, I never thought that they would permit me to read the book above but it was worth it!
I knew Ms. Ivy as a great PNR author, I love reading her Guardians of Eternity Series and her newest PNR which is the Sentinels. I am actually waiting for NetGalley for her books ~ just in case I am given another chance to review her books once again.
As for this new series, all I can say is “Bravo!”.
The story line is simple and clean. There are no unexpected turn ~at least on this book, I don’t know about the rest of the series~ and it is well written.
As for the characters their personality is well written, even the ones that have not their own book, you would really anticipate what will happen to them. The dynamics on how well they blend together made this book so appealing to me.
But let us not forget the romance behind it. As I have said simple and clean, the same applies with the love story between the two characters. Rafe’s straightforwardness is so refreshing and Annie’s reluctance matches each others vibe. The blending of the two made a really good love plot that is swoon worthy.
Yes, the three little words are not mentioned, but is that the only way to express devotion and love to someone?
As I have said, this is one series I would watch out for. I cannot wait to read the next one!
