He’s fighting for what’s right.
She’s fighting just to survive…
When former Special Forces soldier Finn Bollinger is asked to help with a deadly government mission, he’s up for the task. His job teaching survival skills to civilians at Linear Tactical keeps him sharp, and he can still handle himself in the field.
But the Army damn well didn’t teach Finn how to handle Charlotte Devereux. She’s back and she’s all sorts of bad news.
Charlotte can’t change the past. Can’t change the choices she made or the fact that they cost her everything. All she can do is endure the fallout. Even if that means putting her future in the hands of Finn, the man who has every right to want to destroy her.
And can in so many more ways than he thinks.
When the undercover mission goes impossibly wrong, they’ll all have to depend on Charlotte’s strength in order to survive. But everyone has a breaking point…
Eagle is an amalgamation of single dad and second chance romance with a dash of danger in the form of government traitor! Charlie and Finn were in love once. Then, suddenly, Charlie marries someone else and gives Finn no reason. Fast forward many years and Charlie is back in town, divorced, and looking for work. Finn is a single dad and still bitter about Charlie’s behavior.
I really understood why Charlie wouldn’t open up about her life. She had no reason to trust Finn and he certainly wasn’t very nice. He made it clear he still held a grudge. Why would you trust someone who made it clear how they felt about you? Charlie is homeless, jobless, and desperate. Her ex husband has ruined her career options and caring for her very ill father is costing more money than she has.
Finn is trying to do the best he can to raise his son. He didn’t know he HAD a son until the child was in foster care so Finn has been trying to make it up to Ethan for years. Ethan is struggling in school and his teacher recommends Charlie as a tutor. She is amazing at her job as a special education teacher (yay for special education teachers!).
Throughout this second chance story is the undercover op that Linear Tactical is helping with. They are trying to figure out what is being sold on the black market by a US government employee. Of course, Charlie ends up unknowingly right in the middle of it all!
There is a lot of angst in the relationship between Finn and Charlie due to all the hurt feelings. Add in the drama and danger from the under cover op and you have a real page turner! Eagle was a great edition to the series and I’m excited for more!
