New York Times bestselling author Kaylea Cross dives into Liliana Hart’s MacKenzie family with NEVER SURRENDER…

As the Bagram crew assembles at a guest ranch in Montana to celebrate the wedding of two of its own, everyone expects a fun week-long vacation enjoying some much-needed downtime together. But in the picturesque foothills bordering the ranch, a hidden danger lurks. 

When the guys stumble upon evidence of a domestic terrorist cell during the bachelor party, it puts everyone directly in the crosshairs of a lethal enemy determined to remain unseen, unleashing a wave of danger every bit as deadly as what they faced back overseas. Then a shocking revelation from the past comes to light, and it may be the key to winning the fight. Now they must come together as a team to eliminate the threat, before they wind up gathered for a funeral instead of a wedding.

Lets start of by saying this is a new author for us a we throughly enjoyed our first read by them.We enjoyed it so much that after finishing this story and that of Avenged we purchased two more books in the MacKenzie series.We are looking forward to reading more about those MacKenzie men.

I love it when a story starts off with hooking you from the very first pages.I think what did it was that those characters that did it.I loved them all especially the girls with their sense of humor and especially Candace's grand-mother she was just a hoot.

This novella had tons of drama going on from the very beginning.If it was not personal drama,wedding drama,grand-mother drama it was something else.I loved getting caught up in it all.It's been awhile since I read a romantic suspense book and this was the perfect read to ease me back into them.Candace and Ryan were easy to relate to.You were able to feel the emotions of this couple and you could sympathize with them and the troubles they were experiencing.You could see that this couple (Ryan and Candace)really loved one another so your heart broke for the turmoil and unhappiness that was causing the gap in their marriage.They were such a sweet couple.I can only imagine what its like being married to a military man constantly worrying if their safe or not and not to mention the loneliness for the both of them they must be experiencing.

The story was surrounded around a couple of friends getting married Erin and Wade in attendance of all their mutual friends but then the story took on a new life of its own with its other character's taking the focus off them.I have never read a story like that before it was quite different and I liked it.But, when all the men decide to hunt and camp for an evening things took a major twist when the men stumble upon something not right putting them all on high alert.

I am not sure what it was or how it happened but I was drawn to Candace's and Ryan's more than any other character's.It was just something about this couple  perhaps their chemistry or connection to one another maybe their love story of falling in love in a war zone.I just love it when a couple find love in the worst possible times it just makes their story more endearing.I was really attracted to Ryan their was something that drew me to him instantly perhaps it was his sweetness, alluring voice or those bedroom eyes but , that man got me all hot and bothered.
(laughing out loud)

I always pick a favorite character in a story even though Candace and Ryan were my favorite couple Ruby caught my eye as well.Ruby Candace's grand-mother turned out to be a character that made me laugh with all her antic's and smart mouth and witty personality. She was a hoot to read about.I loved that she didn't give a crap what others thought of her.I loved how she new how to have fun.I also loved that their was more to Ruby then anyone ever new.That was really a nice surprise when her secrets start coming to life and giving us one of those OMG moments where your mouth is hanging open.Your saying out loud really Ruby ? and than laughing..I loved that moment.Way to go Ruby !

This was an intriguing story that had its ups its downs.I loved that all the character's had so much in common  being military and government men and women with amazing personalities.I also enjoyed the other men and wives who added humor and loved their camaraderie with one another.This just added to the story that gave us more than a few chuckles .This just made the story me enjoyable for me.The plot and the character's drew me right in from the very beginning making it a page turner for me that I read cover to cover in one sitting.I love when your are able to connect with the character's that you read about and as you can see I was able to do just that. This makes for more of a interesting read when you love the character's your reading about.An amazing plot with character's that were love- able funny,smart,protective and possessive and down wright intriguing.My kind of read...

I love a story when the author has done and amazing job that has you thinking about the character's even after the story had been done and over. Though out  the day more than once something came to mind of what I had read and had me smiling..
