A tortured hero with a heart of gold
Growing up on the streets of Rio de Janeiro, Javier Almeida has only his older sister to protect him. When she's sold to a human-trafficker, he vows to hunt down those responsible.
Years later, Titan Group's Delta team finds him, tattooed and brawling, a vigilante protector with information they want. They take him in and train him, working him harder than a man should be driven, until he's a soldier harboring an obsession. Ready for revenge, Javier ghosts his way across the globe, tracking the men who took his sister and working elite private security jobs.
Meets sweet and sassy
Jilted at the altar, Sophia Cole turns the reception into a one-woman party. She's intent on devouring all the cake and champagne, so she can bask in the calories she's been avoiding. In the midst of the revelry, he walks in, the one man she can never ignore.
Javier is her older brother's black ops teammate - an automatic Do Not Go There. But if there's one thing better than fondant and a buzz to ease the wounds of a cheating fiancé, it might be a one-night stand with a South American military man.
Javier didn't expect to see Sophia again. He never thought he would even want to see her again. He shouldn't have touched her, but his mind won't stay away from her.
Now, Sophia Cole is thousands of miles away from the safety of her parents' lavish estate and working alongside him in hell. She's a staffer at an embassy, and he's there to keep them alive. There are bombs and bullets and blood-hungry enemies.
And then she's taken. Gone. Just like his sister. But so much worse.

I really enjoy the Delta/ Titan series and was looking forward to this one. I love the banter between the delta team, I had a couple of chuckles. I also like the mix of action and romance.
During the epilogue a letter is read that was extremely heartfelt, it made me choke up a little,
Javier, everyone likes a damaged hero, right? His character development felt the most real and Kafer really made you connect with the character, the accent was spot on and really made it feel authentic.
It was, unfortunately work got in the way, so I made do with listening to it in two sittings.
Javier is haunted by his past and seeks revenge, Sophia is his team-mates sister who gets herself in some pretty difficult situations - when they get together it creates a passionate and steamy romance. Cristin Harber is once again on fine form, not many people can write and create a world like she can. I'm itching for more.
"Everyone needs a little Brazil!"
No one writes sexual tension like Crisitin Harber. Jeffrey Kafer takes this tension to the next level with his narration. One of my favorite quotes from the book is "That accent is an orgasm waiting to happen." This couldn't be more true with Jeffrey's performance for this story.
Javier and Sophia have met in passing a handful of times. It isn't until a disappointing night for them both that they lean on each other and discover the attraction from afar means a red hot passion one night just won't fulfill.
Cristin Harber gave us a Latin Lover and a "Teflon Tough" heroine to fall in love with.I've truly enjoyed the Titan and Delta stories and I cannot wait to read the next in the series. She will be an automatic one-click for me.
Action-packed, passionate, steamy
Javier, everyone likes a damaged hero, right? His character development felt the most real and it was great seeing how he changed throughout the audiobook.
The whole performance was fantastic, the characters came to life but the accent of Javier was spot on, just perfect. Although by now, I don't expect anything less from Jeffrey Kafer.
During the epilogue a letter is read that was so moving, I got a little choked up listening to it.
Who doesn't love a bit of Delta/ Titan? I love the banter between the delta team, I had a couple of chuckles.

"Another winning combination!!"
I would normally be bored by a series spin off, but you cant get any better than the Writing/Narration combination of Harber/Kafer. Loved it!!
"Another good one!"
This is another good series by Harber. My only issue was Sophia's in ability to make decisions, her constant crying, and her constant ability to get herself in trouble - especially since her character at the beginning of the book seemed so strong, smart, and elegant. Had the author let her portray these qualities throughout the book I would have enjoyed the book more. Sophia's character is the only reason I did not give this 5 stars all around.
The story and the characters always seem more alive to me to hear the story rather than reading it. I seem to get sucked into the reality of the story.
Javier. He was strong, hurting, loyal, determined and he never wavered from his feelings for Sophia once he figured out how he felt. He was so understanding as to why Sophia was having a hard time saying "I love you" to him. He knew she loved him and was secure in that knowledge.
Javier. The accent was done so well. Jeffrey has such a talent for making each character have their own distinct "voice".
The ending where Javier had planned the entire wedding for Sophia so she didn't have to do a thing. The letter he wrote her when he proposed was awesome, so romantic!
I don't think Cristin Harbin can write a bad Titan/Delta book! Can't wait for the next one.
