Cole stirred to consciousness, his brain swimming in murky water. He opened his eyes.

A blur of golden light flickered like a meteor shower. Maddox’s face floated toward him through the buttery haze of dancing light.


She knelt, looking up at him, and pressed a palm to his cheek. Solid and warm. So real.

Too real.

His vision came into sharp focus and his brain cleared in a mad rush of blood to his head. He flinched as if struck by a high-voltage cattle prod.

“Maddox.” His voice was raspy. It sounded as if his larynx had been raked over gravel, but it was a wonder he could breathe. The air in the room had turned dense as mud. “You’re real?”

“I could ask you the same.”

Pain slashed through her eyes, faster than lightning splitting the darkness before it was replaced with a distant emptiness. He went to reach for her, suddenly that naive twenty-four-year-old fool again, but couldn’t move his wrists and ankles.


He was bound to a chair. A steel chair that was bolted to the floor.

What the fu—

“I gave you an IV drip of a special cocktail to help combat whatever mickey the Russians used to drug you.” Maddox unscrewed the cap of a water bottle and tipped it to his lips. His Buddha necklace, clean and sparkling, was wrapped around her wrist like a bracelet. “But your tongue probably feels like sandpaper.”

He guzzled the water, eyeing his surroundings. Sunlight filtered through trees into a first-floor window, casting shadows in the left-side corner of the small room. The unfurnished bedroom faced south.

“Better?” She wiped his mouth with her thumb.

Standing, she eased back into the piquant sunlight. Maddox, in the flesh. He took her in with such vivid clarity, his eye sockets burned.

Time had twisted him into a monster while sculpting her into a masterpiece.

Her light-brown skin was smoother, the taper of her waist narrower. A tank top hugged fuller breasts. Those striking eyes, the color of the Bering Sea in winter, were clearer yet deeper.

She was more of everything that’d once brought him to heel. He’d been an eager-to-please puppy who’d have chased after her into highway traffic.

He caught himself staring, the sight of her ripping a tender scab from his heart. She’d nearly killed him once. If he wasn’t careful, he wouldn’t survive her a second time.

Our Review

‘Loving him hurt, but the pain was a skinned knee compared to the agony of losing him.’

When we were asked if we’d like to read Every Last Breath, the book in the Final Hour Series by Juno Rushdan, we immediately said yes after reading the synopsis. Talk about a heart-stopping introduction! If you’re in the mood for action-packed romantic suspense with tangible sexual chemistry, duplicity, and a whodunit that will keep you guessing, check out Every Last Breath! Explosive with an abundance of swoony second chance romance and a bit of enemies to lovers thrown in for good measure, what an accomplished and clever debut novel this was from Juno Rushdan.

‘Loving her had been the greatest danger. The biggest damn mistake.’

Every Last Breath is told in the pov of Cole Matthews, a man presumed dead, his ex-girlfriend, Maddox Kinkade, an operative for a top-secret special op, and Alexander Van Helden, an enemy who is hellbent on vengeance and retribution with zero sympathies for anyone who stands in his way, and each voice adds an atmosphere of mystery and suspense.

Cole’s reappearance in Maddie’s life knocks her for six. After all, she’s grieved the death of the love of her life for the past nine years. Maddox is in shock; Cole is full of animosity believing he was betrayed all those years ago. But what really happened all those years ago when it all went wrong? One thing is for sure, they have a lot of unresolved anger towards each other, but their feelings haven’t abated, and their sizzling magnetic chemistry is explosive!

“I’ve got you.”
“No. You don’t.”
“You let me go. You let me grieve. You let me fall.’

Maddox’s Special Ops team, Gray Box, needs Cole to help them stop the release of a deadly disease, but can Maddox and Cole put their past behind them and work together and get the job done?

“Who in the hell are you, Maddox? What’ve you become?”
“I could ask you the same thing.”

Although they’re wary of one another, Cole’s instincts scream to protect Maddox at all costs, a hard thing to do when Maddie is intent on putting herself in danger at every opportunity. This lady doesn’t shy from doing what needs to be done, and they’re both a force to be reckoned with.

‘Nine years ago, he’d been deadly. Today, he looked sixty-nine shades of lethal.’

We loved the adventure Juno Rushdan took us and buckled in as Cole and Maddox set about saving the world from a crazed, vindictive and dangerous hitman, all whilst dealing with their hearts in the process. The story will conclude Nothing To Fear, coming this August and we can’t wait!.

‘They’d been as close as two people ever could be. He’d lived for her, killed for her, and, in a million ways, died for her.’

We really enjoyed impressive debut, and although there were times it felt a little repetitive, we’re chomping at the bit and eager to get stuck into the next book as we follow Maddox and Cole’s passionate and thrilling journey. The story continues……


48 hours
2 covert operatives
1 chance to get it right

Maddox Kinkade is an expert at managing the impossible. Tasked with neutralizing a lethal bioweapon, she turns to the one person capable of helping her stop the threat of pandemic in time: the love of her life, back from the dead and mad as hell at her supposed betrayal. Recruiting Cole to save millions of lives may be harder than resisting the attraction still burning between them, but Maddox will do whatever it takes…even if it destroys her.

When Maddox crashes back into Cole Matthews’ life, he wants to fight back. He wants to hate her. But the crisis is too strong to ignore, and soon the two former lovers find themselves working side-by-side in a breakneck race to stop a world-class killer with a secret that could end everything.

The clock is ticking.

“Part of me wants to pretend I have you, but another part thinks I’ll die if you don’t tell me you love me, even if it doesn’t change anything. Even if it’s just getting to hear it one more time.”


‘It’s such a simple word – just four letters. Home. But there aren’t enough letters in the alphabet in the world to capture the meaning of it.’

SWEET MEMORY (The Painted Daisies #1) by LJ EVANS

“I’m afraid I’ll fall completely, head-over-heels in love with you, and that you’ll fall back. I’m afraid we’ll discover we’re the missing pieces of each other’s souls.
The words had a beat -a rhythm- like it was a song she’d already written.
