About this ebook

After his last assignment, Ryker is ready for a rest. And he gets it—but only a few hours …

That’s even too long for a geologist kidnapped by guerrillas in the Colombian jungle. Ryker has plenty of experience in jungles around the world but, keeping Manila safe—along with the two men she’s traveling with and their injured guide—exposes them for who they are. It quickly becomes apparent, under these most gruelling conditions, which of her party steps up and which plan to step out.

Manila’s life has become one of never-ending misery at the hands of her captors as they await word from their bosses, who decide her ultimate fate. That she’s hunting platinum doesn’t matter to them. Nor that she’s fighting against the invasive illegal gold mining taking over parts of the area. When Ryker rescues her from her prison tent, she places her trust in his ability to get her and her team safely away. Not yet realizing she’d be gifting him both her body and her heart too.

Ryker needs to keep them all alive and together long enough to get them out of this hellhole—hopefully alive …

(4.5) Loved the twists and turns, I was actually surprised with some of them. That just makes a book stand out of the norm. I appreciate that. Ryker is up for his mission, his "test" so to speak so he can join "The Mavericks" He is sent to rescue Manilia, a Geologists lost in the Columbian jungle. Lost or captured? His helper is Miles. I thought Ryker and Miles worked seamless together and I really enjoyed their partnership. Manilia has a brain!! Yes an intelligent geologists not afraid to speak up for herself, so take that Benjamin! Andy was an enjoyable asset to the Geologist Team. The secondary characters were needed and took the story out side of the norm. An enjoyable, mystery, romance, and suspense. The suspense had me hesitant to flip a page. The romance seemed genuine in the shor amount of time they had, and that adds another plus in my book. Thank you Dale Mayer and Booksprout for the arc. I freely volunteer my thoughts and opinions.

I received a complimentary copy of this book and I am voluntarily reviewing it. At first I wasn't sure if I wanted to read and review this. The thought of reading a book that takes place in Columbia, a country that I am very unfamiliar with, was a little daunting. The author is a favorite of mine though so I thought, "what the heck, go for it." Boy I am sure glad that I did. I should have trusted more. I wasn't inundated with descriptive detail so my mind was allowed to fill in the blanks. There was one passage that really stood out to me that I was grateful for. There was a snake that went over Manila's boot. There was no description nor the name of the snake for me to stop reading the book and search the internet for. I was given the opportunity to just see "snake" and continue to read. The plot flowed beautifully. I adored how trusting Manila was of Ryker. Some female protagonist can be extremely combatant in situations where the alpha hero takes over to protect and rescue them. It can make me a little upset and distance me from the character. This is a sexy book so I can only recommend this to anyone over the age of 18. Also while this is a part of a series, this can be read as a stand-alone.

This is book 6 in The Mavericks series and it features Ryker and Manila. The chemistry is there. The flirting was fantastic! These two are a good match. Wish we could see a little of their relationship AFTER they got back from Columbia but sadly we see nothing. When the mystery is solved, the story ends. The characters are always fantastic! The action is top notch! I could actually visualize them trudging through the jungle. There were a lot of holes in the story line and it drug out far too long for such a simple plot. It also ended without much excitement.
