This book kept the pace moving from the beginning to the end - as Daniel tries to get Regan out of Rio safely, and find his sister too. The more time they spend together, Daniel becomes Regan's rock - and he always keeps his promise of never leaving her behind.
But Regan is not totally broken from her two months of captivity. Regan may be scared to be alone - but she is still a "fighter girl" and remains strong - even putting herself in situations that could bring her more harm.
Daniel and Regan are perfectly matched for each other - regardless of their situation, and what Regan has been through . He handles her with such care and tenderness - giving her exactly what she needs - as he allows her to take what she wants to feel safe. I smiled in so many places in this book - loving their "quips" back and forth to each other - some for fun - mostly for lightening a situation which could become extremely tense.
Daniel found more in Rio than he ever imagined with Regan. LuckilyRegan stayed strong while in captivity, doing what was needed to survive - even though she was unsure whether she would be rescued - she hadn't given up in...
"Holding Out for a Hero"
Daniel came to save her - and she found her hero...
I have two new "go to" authors - and they are Jen Frederick and Jessica Clare. I really enjoyed the first book in the Hitman Series "Last Hit" - a definite 5 star, but let me say I FREAKING LOVED "Last Breath" so much more - one that will stay with me for a long time!
