Four men fighting against their pasts…and for each other.

Several years after washing up on a beach in South Africa with absolutely no memory—not even his name—Lucky would rather not remember his past. Based on the number of scars on his body, it couldn’t have been anything good.

Then a man claiming to be his former Navy SEAL teammate walks into the bar and insists that Lucky’s real name is Josiah Joshua Kent. Turns out he’s been listed as KIA, and since he’s not dead, he’s now AWOL—and under suspicion.

Discovering Josh is alive throws Rex, and his relationship with Sawyer, into a tailspin. Rex can finally lay to rest the nightmares of the night he couldn’t save his teammate. And Sawyer is faced with his worst nightmare—a relationship threatened by a very real ghost from the past.

As Josh begins to piece his memories back together, another man with a shadowy connection to his past—and maybe his heart—holds the key that could free him. Or send him to a traitor’s fate.

I couldn’t stop reading this book even though the writing was not great. I love this series even though the plot/story is as rocky as the stormy seas. Why I ask myself? I truly don’t know why I like these underdeveloped characters but I just do.

This story is basically a continuation of book 4, Bound by Danger where we met Sawyer & Rex.
Rex had lost his boyfriend of 4 years on a mission. We also met Clint & Jace, Jace being Sawyer’s best friend. Well, in this book, Josiah “Josh” Kent came back from the dead to disturb Rex and Sawyer’s brand new relationship. Josh now went by the name Lucky in South America and has amnesia. He had been living there for the past 4 years working for the Bain Family in their bar, when Dashiell “Dash” Bain returned home.

Rex is thrown for a loop, but Lucky doesn’t remember him. The Navy Seals take Lucky/Josh into custody while they try to figure out what happened, and if Lucky/Josh is faking his amnesia to coverup the fact that he is either a deserter or has been turned by the terrorists who had captured him.

Dash is trying to figure out whose side Lucky/Josh is one as he is falling for him. But Dash is also worried about if Lucky/Josh will go back to Rex. Sawyer is also worried about losing Rex and everyone is just on pins and needles as they figure out the deal with Lucky/Josh’s amnesia.

I liked the couples, I liked how things ended, but the flow of this story was just rough. Still I couldn’t wait to find out who the leak was and just what Lucky/Josh would remember. The ending was rushed, but I was pleased with the outcome.
