Not always a go-to genre for me, Cynthia Eden just may have me picking up more romantic suspense in the future. The LOST Team (Last Option Search Team) is back on the case in New Orleans, and nothing is truly as you thought it was.
Jax is a member of LOST, a total badass and while not always completely on the right side of the law, he is committed to his team, their missions and those he is tasked to find (or protect). He’s not the typical bad boy though: there is heart and caring underneath the get it done exterior, and his desire and caring for Sarah is palpable.
Sarah is a criminal psychologist, and there is something to be said for her looking to her past to inform her career. With a father of dubious morals, she’s encountered the dark side more personally than many, and her ability to not shrink away from difficult or emotionally taxing situations show an iron core that doesn’t diminish from her ability to be vulnerable and admit when she is in over her head.
An attack on Sarah throws she and Jax into a maelstrom, and with a girl turning up missing that coincides with Sarah’s attack, everything starts to twist and turn into a giant, edge of your seat, read with the lights on story. With plenty of heart and heat between Sarah and Jax, angst as Sarah faces demons and darkness from her past and the overriding mystery, this story was jam packed with thrills galore.

In New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Eden's latest novel featuring the Last Option Search Team (LOST), one agent is forced to face her past as she uncovers secrets about the man who may be the key to her future.
Criminal psychologist Dr. Sarah Jacobs is all too familiar with the kind of bad boys who belong behind bars. But the dark, dangerous man she meets in the New Orleans underworld is a new kind of ruthless, and all too irresistible.
Jax Fontaine doesn't claim to be a good guy, but he's loyal to his own code and brutally honest about what he wants. He and Sarah may be worlds apart, but when they're skin to skin, nothing matters but the heat between them.
And when a deranged killer targets Sarah, Jax will do whatever it takes to keep her safe.
