Fearsome Gray Box operative Gideon Stone is devoted to his work and his team. He's never given reason to doubt his loyalty...until he's tasked with investigating Willow Harper, a beguiling cryptologist suspected of selling deadly bio-agents on the black market.

He knows she's innocent. He knows she's being framed. And he knows that without him, Willow will be dead before sunrise.

Thrust into the crossfire of an insidious international conspiracy, Gideon will do anything to keep Willow safe...even if that means waging war against his own. With time running out, an unlikely bond pushes limits―and forges loyalties. Every move they make counts. And the real traitor is always watching...

I found Juno Rushdan by reading the Sourcebooks sampler of romantic suspense novellas, Turn the Tide and went quickly on to request Every Last Breath. The Final Hour series  is about a covert black ops team with both analysts / computer hackers and tactical fighters / assassins. Nothing to Fear is about finding a mole within the group which is not only threatening national security, but also the lives of the team.

I enjoyed reading this sexy, action-packed story. Overall, the plot and romance were predictable.  The technical details of the work and the battles was fascinating, though. I loved the characters of Gideon and Willow. Gideon was the usual amazing fighter / killer who thinks he isn’t good enough for any woman. He is sure Willow is better off without him.

Willow is a fun piece of diversity.  She has some quirks, and is likely on the spectrum.  She is beautiful and brilliant. Her computer skills are first rate.  Her social skills have some limits and she is fairly uncomfortable in most relationships of any type.

A couple on the run, in a life-and-death situation, has the high emotional situation which allows an honesty usually not considered.  Gideon was very capable in a threatening situation. Willow did make it harder by acting TSTL in a few instances.    The identity of the mole was a shock.  I definitely want to read more about this team!  Until the End, book 3, is projected to release in May 2020.

About Juno Rushdan

Juno Rushdan draws from real-life inspiration as a former U.S. Air Force Intelligence Officer to craft sizzling romantic thrillers. However, you won’t find any classified leaks here. Her stories are pure fiction about kick-ass heroes and strong heroines fighting for their lives as well as their happily-ever-after.

Although Juno is a native New Yorker, wanderlust has taken her across the globe. Fortunately, she is blessed with a husband who shares her passion for travel, movies, and fantastic food. She’s visited more than twenty different countries and has lived in England and Germany. Her favorite destination for relaxation is the Amalfi Coast, Italy for its stunning seascape, cliffside lemon groves, terraced vineyards, amazing pasta, and to-die-for vino.

When she’s not writing, Juno loves spending time with her family. Exercise is not her favorite thing to do, but she squeezes some in since chocolate and red wine aren’t calorie-free.

She currently resides in Virginia with her supportive hubby, two dynamic children, and spoiled rescue dogs

    • It’s romantic suspense which is a favorite genre of mine. It is the 2nd book in the series. You will understand more if you start at the beginning of the series. But with Gray Box being so covert, sometimes you don’t understand everything anyway. lol
