Until the End
He's strong. Fierce. Relentless.
And he may be her only chance of surviving the night.
Gray Box operative Castle Kinkade always gets the job done, no matter how tough the assignment. But when he agrees to protect white-hat hacker Kit Westcott, Castle's loyalty is tested like never before. Trapped in the closest of quarters, protective instincts flaring, he can feel the i...more
Sweet Young Thing (Not) and the Secret Agent Man. Usually, I love this trope, but not this Sweet Young Thing. She grates rather than inspiring sympathy. She is all blow and big talk without anything to back it all up. She has a pathological mistrust of the Government and, even when it is in her best interest, choses to lie to the people trying to help her.
A Trust Fund Baby, Ka ...more
Review copy was received from NetGalley. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
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. In Until the End , the team works to track down ...more
Until the End, is the third book in the Final Hour Series, and I'll be honest I've come into this series late, starting with book two, and continuing on, and I couldn't really remember much about that story when I started reading this one. Which I do think impacted my enjoyment of it, and lessened the OMG factor when certain aspects of this story came to light. (Sorry, if that sounds vague, but I don't want to spoil it.)
But there's no denying this was a well written, intricately plotted sto ...more
There were some twists I did NOT see coming. And, as always, Juno Rushd ...more
Until the End, the third book in Rushdan’s Final Hour series is just as explosive as the first two books in the series. There is nonstop action, intrigue, danger, and suspense that will keep you glued to the pages.
The clock is ticking in this installment and time is running out. Twists and turns abound as well as a shocking betrayal that hits the team hard and has you wondering the outcome of the team and the future of Graybox. I really did not see th ...more

I received and Advanced Readers Copy from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for my fair and honest review.
I read and reviewed this advanced complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley
I love this series and I can’t wait to see where she takes it next!
Thanks netgalley :)
This is one helluva heart racing, pulse pounding romantic thriller.
Although part of a series, each book does well as a stand-alone as each book concentrates on a different character within an organization known as the Gray Box, a secret, black ops paramilitary group.
This book follows Castle Kinkade and his attempt at keeping his Person Of Interest alive. Kit Westcott is a wealthy hacker who finds herself in over her head. When the two meet, distrust soon melts away into a ...more
What a ride this series has been. Everything truly comes together in this series conclusion.
Once again Rushdan keeps the story packed with action and suspense. Rushdan has a way of writing action and fight scenes where I can actually keep track of what's happening instead of feeling like I'm looking at a blurry action scene in a movie. Everything in the story has a purpose in the plot and I appre ...more

This book is a wild ride of excitement from page one. I read it as a stand-alone, but it seemed too convoluted at times to keep all the players straight, and I realize I should have read the two before. I will now go back and read them.
Even though I could not relate to Kit and her life experiences, I soon conn ...more
Someone on the inside of Gray Box is a traitor and that person is revealed in this story.
Kit and Castle are thrown together after Kit’s family is murdered in front of her. She is in possession of the only evidence of what happened and can bring some really influential people down. Castle is initially sent in to retrieve her, but finds himself not only attracted to her, but also wanting to protect her. He has to protect her from forces outside of Gray Box, but soon he finds out, f ...more
The scope of this novel is large, with ever-widening circles of involvement as the story blossoms from one seemingly minor operation to a large conspiracy. I greatly appreciated the peeling ba ...more
Until the End is the third in the Final Hour romantic suspense series that must be read in order.
Kit had a bad feeling about a certain job and the new guy she let on her team of super hackers, but seeing them all get executed and learning they might have been working for terrorists puts ...more
I’ve enjoyed every one of Juno Rushdan’s books I’ve read, but none of them have been as much of an edge-of-your-seat roller coaster ride as this one! This is the third in a series, and while you could probably read it as a stand-alone as everything is recapped well, ...more
I also hated the villain POVs and thought Castle’s shock over the reveal was unlikely, given that ...more
I really enjoyed Until the End by Juno Rushdan. This is a romantic thriller with a fast pace that had my interest from the start.
I loved the two main characters, Kit, a white-hat hacker who finds herself way over her head in a bad situation, and Castle, an operative for a secret government agency, Gray Box. I loved that Kit was someone overwhelmed by her situation but throughout the whole ...more
An edge of your seat romance…
From the adrenaline-pumping opening lines, this story never let up on action or tension. Kit and Castle came together in the last place you would look for romance, a terrorist plot, but somehow that made the emotions sharper and stronger…
Kit was alone again, struggling with grief, her conscience and the threat of prison. Not really a good time to find love. Castle was going to be her salvation or the last nail on that prison cell door. All she needed was to trust him ...more
The story starts out with a bang setting up the plot as to why Castle with his ...more
I love this series - It’s hard to find a well written romantic suspense novel that balances the two well. Rushdan does a fabulous job. With this book though, I did figure out pretty early on who the real bad guy was, but it didn’t take away from the th ...more
