Wealthy socialite Olivia Barton never imagined her fiancé would disappear on what was supposed to be a routine business trip. She's even more heartbroken and confused when a hired private investigator tracks him half a world away, to a seaside town in Colombia. But the country has recently been ravaged by a massive earthquake and deadly tsunami, shutting down outside communication and making travel all but impossible. Still, Olivia is determined to make it to Colombia to find the answers she so desperately seeks. What she needs is a guide—a mercenary.
The man named Thomas arrives in shadows, an unmistakable air of danger about him, promising to help lead her through the ruined, crime-infested country. But when Thomas and Olivia find themselves fighting an undeniable attraction, danger takes on a whole new meaning. Then again, in the lush jungles of South America, all the rules are different and Thomas and Olivia are about to discover that sometimes the thing you seek, isn't necessarily the thing you find.

I was provided a review copy; this did not influence my opinion of the book.
Olivia’s fiance’ Alec, goes missing and she hires an investigator to help. When she learns Alec is in Columbia she seeks help from a guide. Thomas was not what she expected. She didn’t expect to start feeling things for the man who was helping her find her lost fiance’. He is mysterious and at times cold, yet Olivia sees the good beneath his rough exterior.
Thomas is hired by Olivia to take her to her fiance’ in Columbia. As an ex-navy seal, he was an excellent choice for the earthquake, tsunami-torn Columbian terrain. And while he had a job to do, he couldn’t seem to fight his attraction to Olivia.
They run into quite a bit of trouble along their journey and it only serves to bring them closer together.
I read my first Mia Sheridan book, ‘Leo’ in March of 2013. Since that time I have become a HUGE fan of her storytelling. Her books are generally angsty, sexy and hold a message. Sheridan has always been one of my top favorite authors. So, keeping it real here, this was my least favorite book from Sheridan.
I was looking forward to the thrilling element the blurb promised and while there was some intrigue, because the story was rushed, the thrill was lost. Also, the characters fell flat for me. The instant attraction/love was over the top and everything just felt rushed. I didn’t get a chance to connect with the characters and believe in them before they connected with one another. Olivia at times comes across as self-assured and then other times as immature. Thomas was a tortured hero and by all accounts, I should have loved him. But there wasn’t much depth to his character.
Having said all of that, I can’t wait to read what Mia Sheridan writes next because out of the 11 books from her I’ve read, my average rating is 4.6!
