From the Back Cover
As a vulnerable teenager, Eliza Cummings was the target of a predator who cultivated her need for love and approval. Until she found the courage to fight back and help put him away. Years later, she works with Devereaux Security Services and devotes every hour to taking down the very thing that nearly destroyed her. But now the killer has been set free, and Eliza knows it’s only a matter of time before he comes for her, and the people she loves.
Wade Sterling never allows anyone close enough to see the man behind the impenetrable mask—but one woman threatens his tightly leashed control. He took a bullet for Eliza and the result was more than a piece of metal embedded in his skin. She was under his skin and nothing he did could rid him of the woman with the heart of a warrior.
But when Wade sees a panicked and haunted Eliza he knows something is very wrong, because the foolish woman has never had the sense to be afraid of anything. So when she tries to draw a monster away, the primal beast barely lurking beneath his deceptively polished facade erupts in a rage. She may not know it, but she belongs to him. This time, Eliza isn’t going to play the protector. She was going to be the protected. And as long as Wade breathes, no one will ever hurt what is his.

For 20% of a 352-page book to be nothing more than Eliza's internal angst over how she's going to lie to her team mates (who are her family) to protect them from the monster of her past, with nothing to advance the plot, I am really, really bored. Then, we finally get something different. We're finally out of Eliza's angsty, mental hand-wringing...and it's pages and pages and pages of introduction to new characters (who, I am truly hoping, get their own books in the future). But it's not just an introduction. These men are soooo hot, so full of testosterone that just looking at them gets Eliza's "girly bits tingling."
Seriously? Maya, is this your writing? And, what's up with Eliza lusting after these hot guys to the point of getting her "girly bits tingling" when, according to the book description, the H of this novel is Wade Sterling! And so far, we've seen Wade ONCE in the book, although I'm almost 25% of the way through.
Another thing I did not appreciate was how the Deveraux brothers whose stories appear earlier in the series, are now dissed. I grew to like the brothers in the earlier books for their strength, intelligence and loyalty. Now, to read that "Caleb was an anal bastard" and the unending litany of complaints about how meetings with the Deveraux brothers are endless and boring, is not a pleasant revisit of characters that I like. Of course, none of the complaints are actually SAID. Heavens, no! It's all more of the internal dialogue that repeats and repeats and repeats on the same point of complaint over and over and over again.
Every author has the right to a one-off upon occasion. Banks is a talented enough writer that I certainly will not stop buying her books over this. But honestly, this writing does not have the pacing, the dialogue, the sheer talent I've seen in her other books. I'm having a really hard time even getting through. At this point, all I want to do is slap Eliza upside the head to get her to snap out of the internal thought cycle that is on endless repeat.
EDIT: OMG. I tried. I seriously did. But I just can't keep plowing through this. Chapter 6 is all Dane's internal thoughts. Chapter 7 is Wade's internal thoughts. Page after page after page of highly repetitive thoughts. I started skipping just trying to find some dialogue. Finally, after 30% of the way through the book, and most of the way through chapter 7, Wade has his second scene with Eliza in the entire book. This level of internal dialogue is a beginner's mistake that I do not expect to see from the talented Ms. Banks.
