Publisher's Summary

A Wall Street Journal bestseller.

The stakes are personal, hot, and dangerous in New York Times bestselling author Susan Stoker's riveting Mountain Mercenaries novel.

As tough as Everly Adams may be, the Colorado Springs SWAT officer is near a breaking point. Her fifteen-year-old half sister, Elise, has disappeared from Los Angeles without a trace, and the window to find her is closing fast. Committed to the search is Mountain Mercenary Kannon "Ball" Black. He and Everly already have a history - of rubbing each other the wrong way.

Still, Everly has to admit the man is heart-stopping. His brash alpha swagger takes her breath away. And most importantly, as a former Coast Guard first responder, Ball has what it takes to bring Elise home.

Nobody's buying the LAPD's "runaway" theory. And the fear that Elise is the victim of a human trafficking ring is a gut-punch that Everly and Ball can't ignore. If only the trail were that clear cut. Because the one they're following is more insidious and intimately dark than they could have imagined.

Now as the bond between Everly and Ball grows stronger, so does the heat. And as the stakes rise, so does the danger.

Even a good story is a lousy story when the author can’t come up with an end to it!

What happened? Did the author’s brain just freeze in the last chapter? Or, did she think that “that” was truly an ending.
It appears to be the easy way out these days for authors and film writers to just quit…
That was half of a novel. Where is the ending? What a disappointment & weakness on the authors part‼️ What… did your house just catch fire or did some numbskull actually let you get away with submitting an unfinished manuscript?
This could have been a whole different review! But she blew it, big time! Nice beginning, interesting middle, but, 😏no completion!!!
Don’t bother wasting your time and money like I did‼️‼️ What a jip‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️

Great series

This is a fantastic series and each book gets better and better. I’m really enjoying the camaraderie between all of the men on the Mountain Mercenaries team and I can’t wait to enjoy the next book in the series.

He's a Keeper

I love this series, and have enjoyed each of the stories so far. This story, though, I really loved because it simply didn't go as I expected it to. But then, Ball and Everly haven't managed to run on smooth roads since they met thanks to Ball's big mouth and his assumptions based on past history. Everly's not going to cut him any slack, either. He screwed up, acted like a jerk, and she's holding him accountable.

But as the mission to find Everly's sister continues, and walls finally begin to erode, we discover the real man behind the gruff words of Kannon "Ball" Black. And this man, isn't too big a jerk to look at himself and realize he might need to recalibrate his views on a few things that happened in his past. Geez. He's a keeper.

This fast paced and well-written novel is another great addition to the Mountain Mercenaries series.
