Nothing to Fear by Juno Rushdan

2nd in the Final Hour series. Can be read as a standalone but takes off immediately after the first. Romantic suspense thriller.
Intense, enthralling, and entertaining.

Gideon is a real life James Bond (ok, in book form!) and he has set his eyes on Willow. She has intrigued him since she started at Gary’s Box. His assignment to get to know her makes his heart trip in anticipation.
Willow doesn’t know what to do when Gideon starts chatting with her. What are the rul

I'm giddy with anticipation for the next book in this series and also for discovering this author.
Juno Rushdan has found a new fan.
I have to check out her backlist to see what else I can read!

This story was intense, action-pact and so well executed that it was when I was at the 80% mark of the book, and that all the loose ends were starting to be tied up that I realized the story would soon end.

Gideon is an operative for Gray Box, a super secret agency. There is a mole embedded in Gray Box and evidence point to Willow. Gideon has a protective streak when it comes to Willow and they go on the run to save her life and clear her name.

This is the second book I have read by this author and she has become a must read for me. This book is full of heart stopping action, betrayal and a romance. I can’t wait for her next book. Thank you to net galley for an advanced readers copy.

5 RED HOT STARS!!!!!! If Goodreads would allow me to award more stars, this would be the book to get them.

Ok, Juno Rushdan, you have made me a believer!! I wasn't quite sure how I would like the romantic thriller genre. But after seeing many rave reviews on your first book in this series, Every Last Breathe, I decided to give it a chance. And you did not let me down. I loved it. I was so hungry for more when the book ended. It literally l

I found Juno Rushdan by reading the Sourcebooks sampler of romantic suspense novellas, Turn the Tide and went quickly on to request Every Last Breath. The Final Hour series  is about a covert black ops team with both analysts / computer hackers and tactical fighters / assassins. Nothing to Fear is about finding a mole within t

I loved the first book in this series and expected this one to be great too, and it was. The characters that are not what you expect facing situations totally out of their experiences, "Nothing to Fear" is my kind of Romantic-Suspense and much, much more. Juno Rushdan is one of my new favorite authors. She writes hot romance and exciting action filed with tension and
The first book in this series was one of the best Romantic Thrillers-and thrillers, period-I've read. This book blew that one out of the water. Gideon is just...yeah, SWOON. And Willow is so beautifully different and amazing. I loved the continuation of all we'd learned, and finding out answers, but I cannot wait for more from the Gray Box. A simply spectacular series!

Nothing to Fear is the second book in the series, I was lucky enough to be able to read the first book and now to follow up with this one. The book is very well written, action packed romactic suspense. The chemistry between Gideon and Willow was awesome, and I found this book even more enjoyable than the first book in the series. I would definitely recommend this book to others.
After the adrenaline rush that was Every Last Breath, I had to press forward with this riveting and on the edge series with its compelling plot and charismatic characters. There is a mole in the Gray Box organization and they are setting up one of their own to take a hard fall. Another page-turner!

4.5 Stars

Nothing to Fear, from Juno Rushdan, is beautifully balanced romantic suspense filled with well-written action scenes and a sweet romance. I loved Gideon and Willow and could have read about them for days.

Book 2 in Rushdan’s Final Hour series, Nothing to Fear picks up shortly after Every Last Breath (book 1) ends. While this can technically be a standalone with a new romantic couple, there are plot points that begin in ELB that are part of an overall story arc for the series.

Nothing To Fear is another excellent read by Juno Rushdan. Willow, the female lead, is being framed by someone within her own ranks. Gideon, the male lead, is investigating, but he knows she is innocent. The interesting thing about Willow is her diagnosis as a high functioning autistic person. I always like to see something that society labels as a disability being shown as the opposite of that. No one fits in a box with a label, and people are equal. Willow is intelligent and intuitive with jus ...more

That fresh, new-book smell coming from the shelf wafts of diversity, and there hasn't been a debuting (or established) contemporary romance author I've read yet this year that delivers books with this sweet aroma as well as Juno Rushdan.

Today I'm reviewing Nothing to Fear, the second book in the Final Hour series, following Every Last Breath, which I had the privilege of reading and reviewing a few months ago. Thank you to Netgalley and Sourcebooks Casa for again allowing me to read this advance

Nothing to Fear is the second book in the Final Hour series by Juno Rushdan. It continues right after the first book, Every Last Breath, and immediately immerses you into the aftermath and chaos of finding the mole deeply imbedded within their tight-knit team. All these operatives are like family and no one wants to believe someone considered as such has betrayed them but with the harsh truth staring them in the face, those vetted and trusted dive deeper into everyone’s lives to ferret out the t ...more

This is the second instalment of the Final Hour series and begins where the first book ends. Gray Box, the little known covert organization, has a mole. They are racing against time to find the traitor in their midst. Failure means the destruction of Gray Box, itself.

Gideon Stone takes on the task of evaluating beautiful and unassuming Willow Harper, his reluctant attraction to her making him unable to stomach anyone else in that role.

To date, Juno Rushdan has written two books, both in her Final Hour series, and they are two of the best romantic suspense/thrillers I’ve read. After reading the first, Every Last Breath, I was so impressed and thrilled to get my hands on an ARC of the second - Nothing to Fear. It did not disappoint!! I’m pretty stingy with five stars but four just wouldn’t do.

What puts this series at the top in this genre is simply the writing- followed by the strong plot and complex, interesting characters. Ru

I had thought that the first book in this Final Hour Series was as fast paced and action packed as a story could get but Nothing to Fear is even more so. This second book in Juno Rushdan’s amazing series has an unusual heroine paired with a Rambo type agent. It I can say it is a riveting, unable-to-stop-reading book.

Operative Gideon Stone is part of the Gray Box team that is searching for a mole within the secret government agency. There is much at stake as the team looks at the different people
Nothing to Fear is Juno Rushdan’s second book in her Final Hour series and follows events of that occurred in the first book, therefore its best to start reading Every Last Breath to catch up. This book has everything that makes a great romantic suspense, plot twists galore, bad guys that are really deadly, scarred hero in the form of Gideon and a fantastic heroine in Willow. I love how this series has fully fleshed out and diverse characters and while it may appear that the romance elements see ...more

This was such a good book, I feel exhausted after reading it. The drama never stops as it picks up from where book one finishes. This time the focus is on Gideon and Willow as they try and prove Willows innocence. I don’t want to give anything away as it will spoil the suspense the author creates, all I will say is that if you love fast paced thrillers with a dose of romance then this boom is for you

Juno Rushdan is a new to me author, and OH MY HELL! Nothing to Fear was an EXCITING RIDE that I couldn't get enough of. This is the story of Gideon Stone, and Willow Harper, who both work at Fearsome Gray Box. He's a lethal operative, while she's a brilliant cryptologist. They really haven't had a bunch of interactions, until someone makes it look like Willow is a mole in the organization, and Gideon believes she's not, so he takes it upon himself to protect her, which exploded into a crazy, hea ...more

Wow! What a sexy, edge of your seat romance thriller! I really liked the first book in this series, Every Last Breath but with this, the second in The Final Hour series, the author really took it to another level. The characters are so well developed and believable that you can't help but fall in love with them. The plot is as tight as a bound rubber band, and the breakneck pacing made it impossible to put down. The writing is just superb without a hint of being too wordy or over the top. It's s ...more

I just finished reading this book. It took me about 2 days to complete. Its a brillant romantic suspense novel for those who love a little bit of heat with their mystery. There were a lot of characters, but this book focused on two and lended some perspectives of the other characters throughout the course of the plot. Overall, the book was well written. There were times where I found there to be a lot of description to the point where it could have been overwhelming. But otherwise, it was a grea ...more

Nothing to Fear picks up where Every Last Breath left off. Someone on the inside of Gray Box is a traitor. I was not ready for this book. At times I didn’t even feel like I was reading. I felt like I was watching a movie or an episode of Jack Ryan (my current fave).
