When Cassie, the woman he loves, leaves him for a job in New York, Dray Warner finds his life falling apart. With nothing else to lose he takes up his friend, Barrett Mason’s, offer to head down to South America for some surfing and good times. But Dray’s conscience, hot temper and extreme fighting skills hurl him into a world of danger . . . a danger that could cost him his life.

Cassie Carlton was sure she was making the right decision accepting her dream job in New York. She and Dray had parted ways and while she remains heartbroken by the break up, she needs to move on with her life. But when Cassie learns that Dray is in trouble, she realizes she will sacrifice anything to save him.

My Review: 4 1/2 stars
I was all over the place emotionally with this book. I felt so bad for Dray, for everything that he had been through. It just seemed that he couldn't catch a break. One thing after another just kept beating him down, further and further. He's closed up emotionally because of his childhood, and he has built his walls so high and so thick, it's what he knows how to do to survive. Cassie seems to be the only person who can get through to Dray, but even she doesn't know that, until she does. The books dual point of view between Dray and Cassie was interesting, they're the other side to each other. Where she's soft, he's hard and where he's closes himself off, Cassie is very emotional. He goes off without thinking of the consequences, and Cassie almost over thinks. This was a great book to read, because when you get to the end and get that payoff of how things start to go right for Dray, it's awesome. Then it just gets better from there. This is the third book in this series, and I have to say I'm loving it. It was awesome to see Barrett, Clutch, Taylor, Nix and Scotlyn. That's the best thing about series, you get to catch up with characters that you care about and see how the world is treating them, even if it's just a little. Tess does a great job with adding or bringing out great characters to her books and making you give a damn about them. I love that about her books and her writing. I'm still hoping there's more to come.
