I surf.
I fuck.
I pretend to smile.

Two years ago my life was perfect, until it wasn’t. I scattered my wife’s ashes then walked away from the Marines. I didn’t think I had anything else to lose.

I was wrong.

The blond showed up at my surf shop, beaten and stabbed. I did what I was trained to do—I stitched her up. I didn’t have a clue who she was and I told myself I didn’t care. Until they came looking for her.

I swore I’d take my last breath before I let anyone else hurt her except I didn’t know she was keeping a deadly secret. Now I had two choices, her life or mine.

Marriage and combat taught me the same thing—I was no one’s hero. And I was about to prove it.


My Review:

I was given a copy of this book by the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review.

My Rating:  5/5 Stars!!!

I love a good alpha male and Talon was as alpha as they come.  This book had it all – angry alpha male, sassy heroine, spicy sex, harrowing danger and sweet redemption.  A definite must read!

Talon has been living with the overwhelming grief at the loss of his beloved wife.  He is a complex ex-military man trying to live a simple, carefree life as a surf shop owner.  He sleeps with lots of women, but never lets them get close.  He is there for his friends whenever they need him and will do just about anything for them.  However, underneath his cool exterior is the perfect anti-hero.

Then he finds Nicole beaten and afraid and his inner protectiveness roars to life.  He takes her in, cares for her and has every intention of sending her on her way once she is healed and can take care of herself.  However, he starts to feel things, things he didn’t want to feel again.  He fights these feelings, but the attraction between them in undeniable.

Let me tell you, people, the sex in this book…HOT!

Talon discovers Nicole is hiding something from him that could put him, her and the people he cares about in danger.

Lots of feels in this book, guys.  I cried (I blame hormones, but really, this was that good).  I got angry.  I was afraid for Talon and Nick.  I swooned over and over, because Talon is just that freaking awesome.

Talon is a definite one-click book!  And seriously??  How HOT is that cover!!!!



Sybil Bartel grew up in Northern California with her head in a book and her feet in the sand. She dreamt of becoming a painter but the heady scent of libraries with their shelves full of books drew her into the world of storytelling. She loves the New Adult genre, but any story about a love so desperately wrong and impossibly beautiful makes her swoon.
Sybil now resides in Southern Florida and while she doesn’t get to read as much as she likes, she still buries her toes in the sand. If she isn’t writing or fighting to contain the banana plantation in her backyard, you can find her spending time with her handsomely tattooed husband, her brilliantly practical son and a mischievous miniature boxer…
But Seriously?
Here are ten things you probably really want to know about Sybil.
She grew up a faculty brat. She can swear like a sailor. She loves men in uniform. She hates being told what to do. She can do your taxes (but don’t ask). The Bird Market in Hong Kong freaks her out. Her favorite word is desperate…or dirty, or both—she can’t decide. She has a thing for muscle cars. But never reply on her for driving directions, ever. And she has a new book boyfriend every week—don’t tell her husband.
