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?

I found this book to long winded and never seemed to make its point. A big disappointment

4.0 out of 5 stars VERY good read :) 20 July 2014
By Nhya - Published on Amazon.com

I really enjoyed this read. Of course I fell in love with our lead Alpha male Travis he was just the right mix of all things overbearing, hot, sensual, possessive, loving & protective.

I loved watching the dynamic play out with he & Caitlin as well. There was plenty of emotional, mental, & physical chemistry to witness with these two.

But what made their story just.. more for me, was the surrounding plot involving them. So many twists and "OMG! I thought I knew where this was going, but I was SO wrong" reveals. And I must say I loved that. It kept me intrigued throughout the entire novel. Things just kept popping up & happening. I was like... "Damn! What's gonna happen next?!" Maybe this is why I felt like I was never going to finish the book? I never hit a slow or dragging point within the novel, but I was wondering why it took me so long to finish it. This isn't a bad thing though :D

Nothing felt rushed here or like it was just left there either. Like it was forgotten about by the time the story comes to a close. I love how all the things that were introduced here, was brought to a close or left you with a clear impression that you would be returning to it in future books, but without that dreaded feeling/thing, called a "Cliffy".

There is a clear set up here for another book. But I love how it was balanced within the story and how it didn't take away from anything concerning our main characters or their plight. It all flowed well & had a purpose. So this was awesome for me.

I would say this is a solid, intriguing, erotic & suspenseful intro to a series. It has me curious about what's to come in the next & future books. I would definitely recommend this read.
4.0 out of 5 stars Fast paced story, bursting with alpha males 1 June 2015
By Jo Fergus - Published on Amazon.com

This was real page turner that kept me up late at night.

There is so much happening in this book that sometimes I needed an intermission to get my head around it all.

Travis is an ex navy SEAL who now has his own security business. Three years ago his wife Sarah went missing and despite a body being found, he never believed she was truly dead. He was right.

Sarah turns up at the US embassy in Berlin. Her name is Caitlin Kincaid, she is suffering from amnesia and has no memory of Travis or their life together. She returns to the US with him as they try to piece their life back together.

Travis learns things about Caitlin that leave him questioning if he really even knew her. One thing he does know is that he is completely in love with this woman and will do anything to protect & keep her.

Caitlin however is a magnet for trouble. There are a number of people with a vested interest in her and what is hidden away in her brain. Some people want her dead, others need her alive to get what they need.

This is a fast paced story involving the CIA, Russian mafia, motorcycle gangs and is bursting with alpha males!

It is a second chance love story too and amongst all this drama is a re-emergence of love between Travis and Caitlin, there are lovely pockets of romance throughout this story.

Really enjoyed this

5.0 out of 5 stars It's got everything 12 July 2014
By Stacey is Sassy (Stacey B-Reviews) - Published on Amazon.com

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.

Haunted by the mysterious death of his wife three years earlier, former Navy SEAL Travis Blake carries with him the guilt of having not been there to protect the one person who meant everything to him. But even after burying his wife, his heart refuses to accept that she’s dead. And his obsessive search for her leads him deep into the trenches of covert ops—where nothing is what is seems.

A fugitive wanted by the U.S. government, Caitlin Kincaid has been on the run for three years. Since waking with a broken arm and leg and a severe concussion that left her with amnesia, she’s managed to evade the covert group that’s been hunting her. But when her companion is mortally wounded while fleeing the mercenaries sent to kill them, he abandons her on the side of the road, leaving her with a cryptic message: ”It’s time for you to stop running. I’m not the one you love.”

When Travis receives news that a woman who has turned up at the American Embassy in Berlin could be his wife, he wastes no time getting to Germany. A large part of him always believed she was alive. And after three long years, his determination finally paid off. But he’s unprepared for the devastation that shreds him when his wife looks at him with no recognition in her eyes, and vows that the woman looking at him as if he were a stranger would know by the end of the day who he was to her.

”We’ll find each other again. And, sunshine, you’re not building a wall between us because I’ll take it down with a sledgehammer. What we had before was once in a lifetime. You think having it, losing it, and getting it back, I’m going to let it slip through my fingers again? You married a SEAL. We’re tenacious, persistent, and we don’t know how to fail. You think with the greatest battle in my life, and that’s winning you back—I’m going to f-#! up now? Not happening. You were mine. You will be mine again.”

But does he even know the woman he loves? Has he ever? Discovering that his wife is a disavowed specter agent—an urban legend of the CIA … a ghost—and the men after her are Russian mafia—arms dealers, Travis suddenly realizes just what’s at stake. He just needs to figure out how to recapture the life they once shared and protect her from the people who want to kill her for things she no longer remembers.

“I’d do it all over again… Make her fall in love with me. I don’t care if it takes weeks or months. As long as I have her. I’ll love her enough for both of us until she’ll learn to love me again.”

A great mix of mystery, suspense, intrigue, espionage, lots of action and erotic romance, this book had it all from a possessive, badass, dirty talking alpha male with a mouth he frequently puts to good use—insert cold shower here—to a strong, intelligent, kick-ass heroine—think Sydney Bristow from Alias or a female version of Jason Bourne. And though I had mixed feelings about this book at first—I’m not a big fan of amnesia plot lines and the overall story was a tad far-fetched—as the story progressed, I become more connected until I was completely wrapped up in every word. Both the characters and the plot were complex, and the storyline flowed well. Overall, I can honestly say that I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and look forward to reading more by Victoria Paige.
4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing story line, kick butt heroine, and a possessive alpha male! 16 July 2014

It's Always Been You begins with Travis still living with the ghost of his dead wife, even though he thinks she may not really bee dead. It has been three years since he got the news, and a lot has changed. But when he gets a call from his best friend and fellow employee his whole world his changed.

Caitlin has been on the run for the last three years. She doesn't remember anything beyond those three years because she was in an accident that caused her to have amnesia, but her friend Jase tells her everything she needs to know.. Or so she thought. He ends up leaving her on the side of the road and tells her that he's not the one she loves... Then come to find out she is actually married to a man named Travis... These two have a whole lot of things to go through, and on top of that there is stills one out there who is trying to kill Caitlin.. Now they will do everything they can to figure out what is going on and how to fix it before it is too late..

This book was not at all what I thought it would be. I was actually afraid to read it because I've read a book that had a similar plot line in a way, so I really didn't know what to think about this one. But I'm so glad a friend talked me into it. This book just blew me away from the very beginning. I couldn't believe everything that happened, and then when Travis and Caitlin meet again after the three years it was so not what I was thinking would happen either. But it did. And it was all crazy, sad, exciting, and beautiful all at once. This book has a very interesting plot line, that kept me on the edge of my seat the whole book. It also has a kick butt heroine who wasn't afraid to fight for what she needed to, and a hot alpha male with a major protective streak, and some major possessiveness.I really enjoyed this book, and I look forward to more in this series.
