Product Description

Product Description

Former Navy SEAL Travis Blake is a rising star in the security business. In two short years, Blake Security Inc. has become highly sought after by the who’s who in Washington DC.

But unbeknownst to many, Travis is haunted by the mysterious death of his wife three years before. He carries with him the guilt of not being there to protect the one person who meant everything to him. He has buried his wife, but his heart refuses to accept that the body six feet under is hers. His obsessive search for her leads him deep into the trenches of covert ops—where everything is not what it seems.

Caitlin Kincaid has been on the run for a while. The sum of her memories began three years ago when she awakened with a broken arm and leg and a severe concussion. Hunted down by a secret group within the U.S. government, her companion persuades her to stay off the grid because of the standing kill order on their heads. One night, while fleeing assassins, she is left on the side of the road with a cryptic message: “It’s time for you to stop running. I’m not the one you love.”

When Travis receives news that the woman who has turned up at the American Embassy in Berlin could be his wife, he wastes no time getting to her. He is unprepared for the devastation that shreds him when Caitlin looks at him with no recognition in her eyes. Amnesia is a challenging enough obstacle for winning the love of his life back, but with lies defining the past three years of her life, Caitlin becomes wary of anyone’s help.

Love was never the problem. A marriage cannot survive without trust. As sinister forces threaten the bond they are trying to rebuild, trust must come quickly or one of them will die.

* Strong sexual content and language. Some disturbing situations. 18 years and above.

~this review may contain minor spoilers~

“It's time for you to stop running. I'm not the one you love.”

Travis Blake, former Navy SEAL, runs a highly successful security business and for all appearances is doing quite well with his life; except he is a broken man. He has never gotten over the sudden death of his wife three years ago and deep down, he doesn't actually believe her body is the one he buried. So when he gets word that a woman matching his wife's description shows up at an Embassy in another country, he doesn't hesitate to fly out and see it for himself. His overwhelming relief at finally seeing with his own eyes that his Sarah is still alive gets overshadowed by heartbreak and disbelief when she doesn't recognize him.

Caitlin Kincaid has no memories of her life prior to three years ago when she woke up with broken bones and no idea who she was. Living life on the run, in constant danger, escaping the assassins who are always on her tail, is all she knows. Then one day, the man she has spent the last three years fighting for her life with, Jase, leaves her on the side of the road with nothing but the clothes on her back and a cryptic message. When she first meets her husband Travis, she doesn't know what to think; living in constant danger has caused her to not trust anyone, and it seems as though Travis truly does know and love her, even if she can't remember it. But the fact remains that she is in danger and Travis makes it clear that he will not lose her again; and who better can keep her safe than a former SEAL who does security for a living?

4.0 out of 5 stars A great roller coaster ride from start to finish! 10 July 2014
By Stephcat76 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
4.5 stars

Imagine waking up one day not knowing anything...who you are, where you are, who you love...that is what happened to Caitlin. To make matters worse, she quickly learned that even though she had no idea who she was, other people knew, and she was running for her life. For three years, this is Caitlin's life. Nothing but running, until one day after yet another close call, she is abandoned on the side of the road by the only man she knows with the words "I am not the one you love."

This means nothing to Caitlin until she turns up at an embassy in Berlin and her whole world changes. She learns that major secrets have been kept from her for the last three years, who she really is and what she lost.

Travis has never given up his heart, he always knew that his wife wasn't dead. When he gets the call and walks into the room he can't believe his's his Sara and she is very much alive only...she goes by Caitlin now and has no idea who he is. But Travis is determined, and sets out to not only protect Caitlin from all the danger chasing her but also to win her heart back.

This was a great story from start to finish. It is packed with action and suspense, romance and passion. It will grab you right from the first chapter and not let go until the last. Travis and Caitlin are both strong willed characters and clash at every turn. The supporting characters are great as well and with so much going on, you never really know who you can trust until all is revealed in the end.

My thoughts:

Quick hook or slow starter? 5 (I was hooked from the first paragraph)
Character development: 4.5
Level of Romance between characters: 4.5
Passion/Heat level: 4.5 (great build up to the sex scenes, defiantly worth the wait)
Angst/Heartbreak: 4 (with no memories of their previous relationship and Travis's jealousy issues, there is a lot to overcome)
Cliffhanger?: No, you get a great glimpse 6 years into the future. Looks like this will be a series, can't wait to see what the author has in store next!!

Overall, I really loved it. Block some time aside when you start this one because you won't want to put it down!

I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fell flat me for 17 July 2014
By Sara - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This one didn't do it for me, sadly. At 44% I was searching for my next book to read. At 67% I started to skim.

Travis was a former Navy SEAL, with the alpha personality. I love me a good alpha male. Caitlin was his wife, who he once thought was dead and buried. She's back 3 years later and has no memory of anything other than the last 3 years. He had no idea she was in the CIA ( and that totally didn't make sense to me)

I thought Travis was a pretty good dirty talker and I quite enjoyed those moments. They were probably, for me, the most interesting. Normally I like amnesia stories, because they keep you guessing constantly, trying to fill in the blanks. This one wasn't as interesting and at 44% I was bored, and I almost quit. But I thought maybe things will get better, hotter, something BIG was bound to happen.
That BIG?? It never happened. The sex was mediocre. It was hot, but brief. Travis could be bossy and demanding, and then a total softie. I didn't feel much suspense considering the military/CIA aspect, fake deaths, mobsters and bad guys. Part of it I was able to figure out. The conclusion could have been been a big BANG, but it was (for me) a big BUST..

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Book! True love, lust, hot sex, intrigue and betrayal from unlikely sources fill this book with outstanding action! 1 October 2014
By TSRBR - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Overall Rating: 4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

Three years ago his whole world ended! Travis Blake was a member of an elite SEAL team that ran special ops for the government. He had met and fallen in love with a beautiful woman named Sarah. She became his wife, everything was wonderful until after returning from a mission when he was told that his wife had been killed in an accident.

Caitlin Kincaid was so tired of running. Her best friend and lover had protected her for the last three years as they tried to stay one step ahead of the agency that wanted them dead. She could remember nothing of her previous life except for the last three years. Caitlin did know that they were members of an elite CIA Force known as specter agents and that the government had disavowed them. It had finally reached the point where there was nowhere else to run, it was only a matter of time before they would be captured and killed. When Jase was wounded in a gunfight, he left her and told her to go to the embassy and turn herself in and she would be safe. His last words to her made no sense, “I’m not the one you love”.

Travis Blake had never given up on finding his wife. He did not believe that she really died in the car accident. Everyone thought he was crazy but he could not let go of the feeling that Sarah was still alive. Travis received a message that Sarah had been found and was at the American Embassy in Berlin. He called in a favor from his mentor Admiral Porter to help him get her out of there and home. It seems that he is not the only one that wants Sarah. The CIA and the Russian Mafia want the information that she has locked away in her mind. It will be a fight to keep her safe and at the same time prove to her that she is his wife Sarah. She thinks she is Caitlin Kincaid and does not remember who he is.

Travis learns that the CIA had used an experimental drug on Sarah and the effects of the drug turn her into a berserker! Will Travis find a way to heal his wife? Will she believe him when he tells her he loves her and she loves him? Can he convince her that they are really husband and wife? There are plots within plots with unexpected twist all through this book that will keep the reader on edge until the end.

Hero: 4.5 stars
Heroine: 4.5 stars
Plot: 4.5 stars
Steam Level: 4.5 stars
Cliffhanger: No

Would I recommend this book: Yes. This is an amazing book with everything a reader could possibly want in a great read! True love, lust, hot sex, intrigue and betrayal from unlikely sources fill this book with outstanding action. Read this book and you will not be disappointed.

Would I recommend this author: Yes. Fantastic writing and amazing story lines that engage readers show that this is an author that should be on everyone's must read list!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great mixture of romance, suspense, and mystery 10 July 2014
By JJH - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I will admit, I am NOT a fan of amnesia plot lines in books. I'm not sure why, but they tend to be either lacking something, or seem silly to me. I received an ARC copy of this book from the author for my HONEST review--and I can honestly say, I thoroughly enjoyed it from beginning to end.

I have read and enjoyed other books from Victoria Paige, and what I like most about them are the strong characters. This one is no different. The hero, Travis, is a super possessive alpha male, whose role I found to be surprisingly emotional while he struggled with not only thinking he lost the love of his wife forever, to trying to deal with the fact getting back to his perfect life won't be as easy as he thought just because he found her again. The heroine, Caitlin, is super strong, both physically and mentally, yet very vulnerable trying to figure out who she really is and sorting through memories and emotions she just can't get a handle on.
Secondary characters are equally entertaining, and the author leads many doors open for possible future books, and spin-offs.

I thought the writing style was very good--easy to read, had a good time-line and flow. It really drew me in from page 1, and in my opinion, it had a great balance of romance, spice, emotion, action, suspense, and mystery. I just really enjoyed it, and I hope to see more from this new group of characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's got everything 12 July 2014
By Stacey is Sassy (Stacey B-Reviews) - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book had everything, action, adventure, mystery and lots of hot sexy bits.

I am a huge fan of Ms Paige and have read everything she has released. She is able to give us a strong, tough Alpha male who doesn't have any problems showing his sweet side, especially to the heroine. This book also had a strong h who was able to stand up for herself while showing love and friendship to the people close to her.

This book had an interesting storyline. I wasn't sure how I would feel if I was faced with the heartache Travis had to deal with knowing the one he loved didn't remember anything they had shared. Ms Paige made it believable and showed understanding of how frustrating it was for both Travis and Caitlin.

The action and drama was riveting and up until the end I still didn't know who were the goodies and baddies.

My favourite part of the book was the last chapter and epilogue and both left me with a big smile on my face.

Great work Victoria, another fantastic start to a series.

Thank you for my ARC and the opportunity to read and review your wonderful work.
