Right from the start of this story,I was hooked!
18 year old Zoe,the daughter of two FBI Agents,is witness to her parents murder,manages to escape before facing the same fate,and as a result is put into a safe house,with agents protecting her until the trial where she is to testify.One of the Agents is Nash Garrison,10 years her senior,as the days in each other's company go on,a mutual attraction is there,with lines getting slightly blurred yet not going too far...Fast forward to 6 years later,with Zoe (24) having joined the FBI ,which was her dream even before losing her parents,and a focus on bringing down the one responsible for her parents death is her ultimate goal.
She comes into contact with Nash again,and even with keeping the professional image,those feelings from years ago is still there on both sides.
Now I won't go into anymore detail as to all that happens,but this is more than a simple second chance romance story...there are other elements which add some suspense,action packed ride,especially towards the end,and a few twists added along with a OMG I DIDN'T SEE THAT COMING! moment.
Jacob has created yet another well written,with great attention to detail,telling in DUAL POV story,that as I said to start with got me hooked from the beginning...I LOVED IT!
No matter what the story line is Jacob manages to pull it off and hook us into it pretty much straight away everytime.
This book starts off with Zoe who's parents work for the FBI and she has high hopes following in their footsteps when one day she comes home to find out her whole life is about to change.
Without giving away any spoilers Zoe is taken to a safe house where there she is looked after by the same agents day in and out... but then Agent Nash Garrison arrives and it knocks them both off their sensible streak.
Absolutely love the charcters especially a hot Irish Mobster named Belfast!!
Highs lows and a death threat or a few then happen throughout the story and then boom a huge plot twist leaves you turning the pages faster just to see what way the story will now go.
Angst... love.. humour.. drama.. emotions.. the Patriots and even a cheeky McDonalds are thrown in this book just proving that Jacob can get himself into every one of his stories!!
Zoe Thomas is not the average eighteen-year-old girl one would expect as she’s been through more than most. The daughter of two FBI agents who are brutally murdered finds herself under the protection of the FBI. One of the agents who has been assigned to her is Nash Garrison and is older in years than her. A bond being around each other twenty-four seven is formed. Their attraction grows, but Nash can't cross the line; after all, it's his job to protect Zoe and not take advantage of her youth and vulnerability.
“There can't be anything between us, Zoe. It's never going to happen, and you need to let this schoolgirl - older man fantasy go. Do you hear me?”
Fast forward six years and Zoe has now begun her dream job in the FBI. When she bumps into Nash, all her old feelings come flowing back, and she realises that she is still hopelessly in love with him. Nonetheless, Zoe doesn't want any distractions as her primary focus is bringing down the man that was behind the brutal murder of her parents and finally get retribution.
“Hi, I'm with the Girl Scouts would you like to buy some cookies?”
“Zoe? Wait.. that was you?”
Right from the very first page to the end I was treated to a full of thrills and spills story. It's entails angst, suspense and romance with a touch of humour. Very cleverly written, it makes you think you know where it's going only to be thrown right off the scent. Told from a dual point of view was a welcome attribute to get inside their minds and read their thoughts, too. Zoe is a sassy, strong-willed heroine and in her time of adversity, she never lets it get her down, making her a truly likable character. Nash is a protective alpha male but also has this way about him that makes him swoon-worthy. He has a constant need to keep Zoe safe.
This romantic suspense novel was so action-packed it made my head spin. I was desperate to know the who, what and why. It never left my thoughts and was relieved to have had an extended weekend to devour and discover where I was being led to. Apart from the good guys, we have a share of baddies. All characters lead and secondary were a real joy to read. The author has once again shown his versatility in his works, and I loved everything about Edge of Retribution. Seeing as the plot and characters are on point and the intense steamy scenes fitted perfectly into the two protagonists’ tale, I couldn’t recommend readers one-clicking this rollercoaster of a ride more. Its five stars are well-deserved and if I could given this book more, I would have.
I've only read a few Jacob Chance books before and this is my favourite one yet.
Excellent and well written characters, and an interesting story that builds up to a nail-biting climax. I loved Nash and Zoe, a forbidden attraction, and a struggle for love and survival.
Zoe, suffered a huge loss and thrust into a whirlwind of fear, pain, and finally resolution. Her desire for retribution really drove the character and her forward in a direction that really suited her.
Nash, protective and very work-oriented but with one key weakness. A certain blue-eyed young woman with a core strength that he couldnt help but admire. I loved the way he was written. He was a strong male character and this shines through very clearly. I also enjoyed the love and teasing he shared with Zoe.
The scenes were written in such a way that you ciuld really feel the intensity and emotions that the author was trying to create. I thoroughly enjoyed the action scenes which all had the right pace, fast and slow when needed, and not overdone or lacking in any way.
I would love for there to be a sequel with some of the other characters in this story as some of them really caught my interest.
Exciting, with some steamy moments and whole lot of thrill!
