Dr. Liv Olney hopes the new intruder creeping into her cell—the cell where all the other women have died from their maltreatment—will kill her quickly; she realizes that whether or not he does, death is imminent given her injuries. But the intruder is Ranger Captain Gerardo Delaney—Del—and his mission is to save her.
Against the unthinkable odds for a woman who has survived rape, malnourishment, and bone-breaking torture at the hands of the war lord Wamukota, Liv survives and steels herself against her memories to continue serving her country clandestinely—to aid other women caught up in the hell of brutality. When her best friend is captured, she feels terrible guilt—Jill went to Africa after learning of the dire situation women and children were in, hoping to teach school and help change that part of the world.
When Liv decides to return to Amadan, she knows she can only succeed if Del goes with her—but his country betrayed and discarded him, and he might in fact have been killed in the car bomb Wamukota set for him.
Just finding Del would be a story in itself, but the journey of two wounded souls bent on saving another innocent victim and each other is breathtaking, scary, and occasionally—ugly. But the story is also totally honest. No one emerges from violence unscathed, and finding love after experiencing such hatred is a long and treacherous path.
Don’t Look Back will make you cry, hold your breath—and ultimately, be very glad you read it. Another winner by M.J. Fredrick!
A battered woman will need to relive her terrifying experience, and a defeated and betrayed man is the only one who can help her. But is a future possible for these downtrodden people who Don't Look Back?
Ms Fredrick gives us an explosive, riveting novel in Don't Look Back as she produces a realistic plot filled with covert ops in a backwater small principality in Africa run by a blood thirsty warlord. She weaves her story with the hard knocks dialogue one would expect from paramilitary operators as she simultaneously, with a descriptive and horrifying narrative, paints pictures in her readers' minds of the horrors that only humans can inflict upon each other. She doesn't use excessive words to do it, her writing it tight and strong, and I don't believe you will find a better told story in twice the amount of pages.
Her characters are exceptional in their portrayals of the good and the bad but it's her hero, Del and her heroine, Olivia who really steal the show as she shows her audience just what the couple is made of. We readers can't help but yearn with the couple as they, in the face of death and torture, show their strength in their fight for survival and for their almost impossible happy ever after.
Ms. Fredrick's romance is poignant, tearful, painful and tender and, as can expected because of the trials her characters go through, her love scenes are filled with urgency, tension and their thought that this might be end, not only for the romance but for their very existence. Like me, I'm sure you will find yourself pulling for these very deserving people for their ride into the sunset.
If you are the kind of fan who can't get enough of seat of your pants excitement, who loves terror filled moments followed by harrowing rescues and, in the mist of it all, a love affair that beckons to the romantic in us, all then go no farther. In "Don't Look Back", you'll find a novel to fill all those needs. However, please take my advice and ask your doctor first if your heart can take the kind of pressure your emotions will put you through between these pages.
Ms. Fredrick, I can't wait for your next work because you have just earned a fan for life.
