Weston was the true deal, he held nothing back. He was upfront and honest, gruff, dominating and totally alpha but also knew when to handle with care, be soft-spoken, and gentle. I loved the vulnerable moments when he let his guard down and shared his fears and reservations with Silver. It brought them so much closer together knowing they were in the moment and dealing with it all together. And poor Silver never knew what hit her, in the form of Weston, but she definitely gave as good as she got. Head-strong, fierce, determined to prove she did not need help and could stand on her own which of course leads to trouble. However, she was intelligent enough to realize she needed help and to accept it from Weston and his team. Though she was not planning on unraveling and being remade or losing her heart in the process but what an awesome journey she had. I enjoyed seeing her character grow under Weston’s guidance. She learned to truly trust, accept, forgive, move forward, and to love. And she gave Weston the greatest gift. This was a great story with a wonderful ending for them and a shocking twister of a look into the next book in the series, Alec. Wow! I am really intrigued and looking forward to his story.

Silver is a mariner who has uncovered a drug trafficking gang at sea and, after putting herself at risk to get evidence of their crime, she has to be rescued by former SEAL Weston, who despite being annoyed that she ignored his advice to stay out of things, quickly falls for this stubborn woman.
The good and the bad:
I stopped reading this at the 46% mark, mainly because I had issues unrealistic aspects and the fact that we missed a crucial part of the hero and heroine’s relationship (and kept being reminded of the fact!). So while I actually quite liked the style of writing, I can’t justify giving the book more than a star as I ultimately found it unreadable.
We join Silver and Weston when the latter is rescuing the former from a ship carrying cocaine - weeks after their first encounter at which the dynamics of their relationship were established. This previous encounter – a meeting between Silver and Weston’s team, called “Gemini Group” - was pretty crucial. It was the first time they laid eyes on (and fancied) each other, the point at which they realised they “hated” each other and there was an explosive argument during which Weston warned Silver not to get involved with stopping the drug traffickers, leading to the point at which the book starts. Bit by bit, the reader is drip fed information about this encounter and I found myself really annoyed that I hadn’t been clued in from the outset. In romance books, the bit where the hero and heroine meet - and in this case fall out - is an essential part of buying into their story and building tension. I felt cheated.
I found it hard to buy into the story because of some unrealistic stuff as well, like at this meeting with Weston and his elite squad who are carrying out operations for the US government, Silver was allowed to be present as they discussed strategy for bringing down a huge drug trafficking group. She definitely would not have had the security clearance for this.
Silver and Weston share a bed every night, and he gives her multiple orgasms each evening, yet he manages not to have sex with her, or let her sort him out or indeed touch him anywhere below his chest. Even though he loves her.
And then there is the little chat Weston and his boss have about the latter’s feelings for Silver. Weston tells his boss (who is at Weston's house not for a heart-to-heart but because he’s angry that his team’s major operation to bring down an international drug trafficking group has gone awry): “The stubborn attitude is bullshit. She hides behind it, but once you crack through just a tiny bit you get something that’s unbelievably soft. My guess is once I get there and she trusts me, it will be better. It’ll be treasure.” I’m sorry, but guys don’t talk like this, especially not when they are neck-deep in an operation for the US government.
Also, there are frequent references to Silver being “treasure”, which I found too corny and repetitive, even if it does explain the name of this book.
As I said, I quite liked the writing style itself, I just wish the authenticity of the situations had been there – and we hadn’t been cheated out of that all-important first encounter and fireworks!
I have to admit that Weston deserves a medal for the way he sees through Silver, for the way he slowly brings her character forward.
There are some sex scenes each of them appropriate and loving.
