Five years ago, Aegis Security op manager Marley Addison’s lover died in a South American raid gone horribly wrong…or so she thought. When she receives a phone call telling her that he is still very much alive and in danger, she vows to bring him home safely, even if Aegis CEO and former Navy SEAL Jake Ryder has kept her out of the field for the last few years. Then Jake shows up in Colombia to help her, leaving Marley annoyed…and more than a little distracted by her alarmingly handsome boss.
As things between Marley and Jake heat up in the wilderness, they discover their rescue mission is filled with treachery. Now the domineering Jake has to rely on Marley for survival. But can she depend on him when their mission takes a shocking and deadly turn?
I have not read the previous books in this series. I generally do not like coming into a series in the middle so to speak but romantic suspense is one of my favorite genre's. I really enjoyed this author's Eternal Guardians series so i wanted to try this one. It drew me in fairly quickly and i read 70% of the book in one sitting. Marley is a very worldly women she's been all over with her father and his security firm growing up. Because of a incident 5 years earlier where the man she was dating was lost in a op over seas Marley left her father's company and later went to work for Aegis. Jake Ryder is the owner of that company and they clash all the time. Marley wants to be a field operative but Jake won't let her. She believes he doesn't think she is capable. Jake likes Marley more than he thinks he should so he does a lot of stupid things that hurt Marley. After leaving her out of important info changes on a op Marley decides she is finally done. Then she receives a phone call from the man she thought was dead, she drops everything to go help him. Jake panics a little when Marley tells him she is through and then more so when he finds out she's gone to Columbia. He decides to go after her. This is where it starts to get interesting but also a little weird. I thought something more would happen in Columbia. While they did get together I thought there would be more danger and something would happen once they found Marley's ex. I was expecting more. Back stateside though not much more happens in regards to the suspense part. It didn't really happen until the very end. I think this story was more about the relationship between Marley and Jake. Overall i enjoyed Fatal pursuit and hope i can go back and read the first two books. Definitely would like to see more books in this series and enjoyed all the characters.
