This is the summary off the back of the book.
Six years ago, Alexis Baptiste’s world was turned upside down when Hunter Cassidy disappeared without a trace, leaving her alone and pregnant. She’s finally moving on with her life when he resurfaces, just in time to rescue her from a would-be assassin. Forced to join him on the run to protect herself and her young son, Alexis is now in even more danger: danger of falling for Hunter all over again.

Betrayed by rogue CIA agents after infiltrating an infamous drug cartel, former DEA agent Hunter Cassidy has spent years trying to clear his name. He’s not proud of the things he’s done, and knows he doesn’t deserve a future with Alexis, or the son he never knew he had, but he’s determined to protect them from the men who ruined his life. Convincing Alexis to trust him—and denying his feelings for her—is going to be the hardest mission he’s ever faced.

This is what I think of the book.
What a rip roaring hold on to the seat of your pants damn good book!!
This gripped me by the throat and didn't let go until the very last word. The betrayal when it came was so unexpected that I actually gasped out loud.

This is a story of forgiveness and the lengths someone will go to for those they love. The characters had real depth and were believable, I loved that Alexis was a strong woman and took charge of the emotional baggage when Hunter wouldn't it made her all the more believable as someone he would love. All in all a very exciting and satisfying read, one that will stay with me for a long time.
