When Hudson has a few days off he decides to journey to Vail to catch up with an old friend, maybe not so old. He and Avery have been friends for a long time. Hudson and her sister were sweethearts in high school however Delilah was killed in a auto accident right after prom. Delilah's death was part of what kept Hudson and Avery together but also part of what kept them apart. So Hudson arrives in Vail and minutes after his arrival, then meeting Avery in the lobby, a loud explosion really jump starts this story. A lot about friendship, love, history affecting decisions, loyalty and a few terrorists thrown in the plot. Their journey is well done and quite enjoyable. The epilogue speaks of Lachlan's trip to Germany and a new job which has captured his interest while he is not so excited about people trying to match him with another. We'll see and I can't wait!

When Hudson Cameron stepped into the elevator in his Vail Colorado hotel, his SEAL instincts kicked in, something wasn't quite right with the two military looking men that were there. Hudson put it to the back of his mind when they went one way and he went the other, he was keen to see Avery, it had been a long time. Hudson just had time to drop his bag and run to meet her, Avery was waiting outside, as he gave her an enormous hug something wasn't quite right, he just had time to push her out of the way before a huge explosion wracked the hotel. This was to be the start of a chain of events that was to put both their lives in danger. Hudson's only real girlfriend had been Avery's sister Delilah but she had died many years ago, where Delilah was quiet and serene, Avery was a feisty redhead who Hudson couldn't stop thinking about, even more so since Mason the matchmaking leader of his SEAL team made him face up to why he kept going back to see her........but did she feel the same way about him or did she see him as a brother ? if they took things to the next level would they loose their special friendship ? The body count in the small winter sports town was escalating and Avery and Hudson appeared to be at the centre of things but why ? Hudson was determined to find the answer, he had no jurisdiction in Vail but with the help of his SEAL team buddies he would work in the background. Another great action packed story with a lovely romance from Dale Mayer. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This is book 26 in the SEALs of Honor series and it features Hudson and Avery. He and Avery have been best friends through the years, although her feelings for him were much stronger than friendship. It’s time they reevaluate their relationship but they’re afraid to ruin what they do have. The story line is good. The characters are ok. The problem is that both the main character’s actions (mostly Avery’s) are so far out of the realm of possibility that it makes the story less attractive. I know that things happen fast and are exaggerated in books but this is even beyond that.
