SYNOPSIS

One text can change everything.
 
Honor Calhoun never thought her life would ever be like the books she writes for a living. One morning while out for a run, she learns not all bad things are plots in novels. Some horrors can actually come true.
She faces off with a persistent attacker, holds her own, but in the end is taken hostage and thrown into a hole. In the middle of the woods.
But Honor didn’t go down there alone.
She took her kidnapper’s phone with her. With a spotty signal and a dying battery, her hope is slim.
Nathan Reed is an active duty Marine stationed at a small reserve base in Pennsylvania. All he wants is a calm and uneventful duty station where he can forget the memories of his time in a war-torn country.
But a single text changes everything.
Nathan becomes Honor’s only hope for survival, and he has to go against the clock, push aside his past, and take on a mission for a girl he’s never met.
Both of them want freedom… but they have to survive long enough to obtain it.

Review

Cambria Hebert has done it again! She's brought us another excellent story of two people being brought together in circumstances that are beyond their control.
 
Honor is a successful writer, but being so has left her rather isolated. The only people she communicates with are her publisher, her mother, and her fans online. The downside of this is when she gets kidnapped no one knows and there's no one to notice until it would be too late. Honor is fighter though and when fighting won't save her, stealing her attackers phone just might.
 
Nathan is a Marine and being so is his identity, his life. Since losing two friends in battle he has been tormented. His body may have came back from Afghanistan, but his soul didn't return in one piece. When he receives a cryptic text, he thinks it's a prank, but it just may be the other half of soul come to find him.
 
This story is action packed! Honor is such a strong character. She is truly the epitome of a victim who won't be victimized. She comes through as absolutely believable too. The fact that she's a writer was icing on the cake. As such you wouldn't expect her to be quite so badass. She's almost more so than the Marine, Nathan.  Nathan is a completely different type of character altogether. He's supposed to be the strict, touch as nails man, but is so broken that he acts through instinct.  He's so caring, making sure that Honor doesn't become as broken as he is that he isn't the stereo-typical soldier.
 
This is 5 STAR read,
 5 Star Series,
coming from a 5 STAR author.
 
I can't say enough good things about this book or this series. Just when you think it can't get any better, it does.

Teaser:

Nathan flashed a grin in the darkness. I longed to see him in the light. I wanted to know the angles and planes of his face. I wanted to take in his features and truly see the man who had literally saved my life. Nathan seemed oblivious to my thoughts as I watched him tidy up the first aid kit. Before he put it on the floor, he glanced at me. “Where else are you hurt?” “I won’t be requiring any more Band-Aids,” I quipped. He turned to look at me fully. His hand closed over mine and he gently took the flashlight from my grasp and clicked it off. “What about your ribs?” “I don’t think you have anything in that kit for them.” “Let me see them.” “Wh-what?” My mouth ran dry. He wanted to look under my shirt? “I want to see them.” “That’s not really necessary—” He studied me and then thrust his hand out in the space between us. “Hey, I’m Nathan Reed. It’s nice to meet you.” I wanted to laugh. We were a little beyond a formal introduction. But it was fun (hey, you try being kidnapped and beaten and see what you consider fun), so I slid my hand into his. “I’m Honor.” He held my hand a little longer than he needed to, his thumb brushing over the inside of my wrist. I caught myself right before I started purring like a cat. That would have been hella embarrassing. “I’m a Staff Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps. My favorite color is green, and I like football.” “What are you doing?” I asked, thoroughly charmed by him. “Formally introducing myself so you’ll let me under your shirt.” I laughed. “I usually don’t let men I just met under my shirt.” “I’m irresistible.” I smiled. “And so modest.”
