On His Six
Alternating perspectives between a guilt-ridden hero seeking redemption and a plucky heroine seeking revenge, the exhilarating third standalone in Eddy’s Away from Keyboard series (after In Her Sights
) explores the healing power of love. When hacker Wren Kane’s recovering addict brother, Zion, dies of an apparent overdose, she’s convinced he’s been murdered. Wren finds clues that confirm her suspicions and indicate that others are in danger. She tries to enlist Dax, the ex-military owner of her security firm, to help save them, but he remains skeptical. Enter Ryker McCabe, who comes to the firm looking to make amends with Dax for abandoning him when they fought together in Afghanistan. When Ryker hears of Wren’s plans to take on the murderers by herself, his new code—“never leave a man behind”—won’t allow him to let her go it alone. Working together to take down the criminal, Ryker falls for Wren, but worries he’s too broken to be worthy of her. Steamy love scenes and rapid pacing keep the pages turning. Smart, strong characters and thrilling action make this installment a must-read for romantic suspense fans. (Self-published.
