FREE – A Black Ops Romance
by Riley Edwards

He was my first love…
I wanted him to follow his dreams. I wanted him to escape the life he hated. I thought I was doing the right thing by not telling him how I truly felt. Until it was too late, and my silence turned into my biggest regret.

Twelve years ago, Shane Owings died, taking my heart with him. I was left devastated and broken hearted. Time didn’t heal, as the years went on I only missed him more.

She was my best friend… the only woman I ever loved.

When I ran off to join the Army, I left behind everything I had ever loved. I thought I was doing the right thing, but my good intentions quickly turned into my biggest regret.

Every year on the anniversary of Shane’s death I watched as Lillian Nelson visited Shane’s grave and spilled her secrets to a dead man. Each year I hoped she wouldn’t be back, that her heart would finally heal and she would move on. But year after year she was back. So many times I wanted to reach out and comfort the beautiful woman, but I knew she would never forgive me. It was my fault Shane was dead.

Until… A terrorist shows up looking for revenge.

I had to come out of the shadows and protect the one woman I had no business falling in love with.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve always loved reading military romances. When FREE fell on my lap, I knew I had to grab it and devour it. And I wasn’t disappointed. From start to finish, this Black Ops romance by Riley Edwards held my interest and captivated me.

Shane Owings died twelve years ago, and Lilian Nelson’s life had never been the same ever since. They were best friends, joined by the hip, defied their respective parents and had dreamed of a future free from the cruelties of the world. Until Shane was killed in combat and Lilian’s heart shattered like glass.

Year after year, Lilian visited Shane’s grave and narrated how her life has been since his untimely demise. Then two men in black pursued her and attempted to kill her, for reasons she didn’t know. Suddenly, Carter Lennox, her knight in shining armor came to her rescue. Who was this man and what did those men in suits wanted from her?

I tell you, this book is explosive. Carter Lennox is badass and cunning. His comrades, Clark, Levi and Jasper were a group of soldiers who would always protect Lennox no matter what. And Lillian, sweet, loving and confused, had the shock of her life and almost broke down. My heart went out for her and I was amazed at how strong she’d been all throughout the story.

Riley Edwards never fails to amaze me. She gives the readers a wonderful read about hot and gorgeous protective Alpha men and awesome kick-ass women. This may be my first Edwards book but it definitely won’t be the last!
