It started off well but got a little heavy in the middle and finsihed really well.

Navy SEAL Nathan Malone said goodbye to his wife Sabella 6 years ago when he went off on a supposedly simple mission to rescue 3 women who had been kidnapped. He was captured, tortured and held for 18 months before his rescue. He was so badly damaged that he was not expected to live, when he healed he was asked to make a choice, let his wife know he was alive or join an Elite Ops group which is made up of reborn dead men. Nathan was so badly damanged in spirit (he did not think like he had previously and could never be the husband he had been to Bella as he was dead as he was concerned) as well as body that he chose the latter so Bella was told of his death. She has mourned him for 6 years, even though she has been dating for 12 months - Nathan was still at the back of her mind.

Something is going on in Nathan's home town, 3 FBI agents have been killed along with quite a few mexican's and Nathan (who is now know as Noah Blake) shows himself to his half brother Rory (who owns half of the business that Nathan left behind). Noah tells Rory that he needs to be hired as a mechanic so he can keep and eye on Bella and the business. Bella is not happy with this new man, who somehow reminds her of her late husband, so much so that she is drawn to him in a way she has been to no other since Nathan died! The relationship between Noah and Bella is hot, just as hot and descriptive as earlier stories.

There is a bit of a twist towards the end - who is the leak withing the sherrif's department, I didn't see it coming but others may.
