 She’d managed to turn her life around and even found herself a boyfriend. A good man. A man she could love.

 Only, it seemed fate had other ideas for her and now she has to choose between the past and the future.

 Parker “Baby” Roman is tired of playing the field. He might be young, but he’s ready to settle down and have a family and he has his sights set on the sexy, but aloof hostess of his favorite local water hole.

 But Baby is ill-prepared to find out the woman of his dreams is a convicted felon and being with her could ruin his career. However, he’ll have to set all that aside when Katina’s life is on the line. He’ll do what it takes, but then he’ll have to let her go.

 Or will he do what is in his heart?

    Wow. This book sucked me so deeply into the story that it felt like I blinked, and the story was already over. Katina has way more family drama than any one person should have to deal with but deal with it she has. I am in total awe over her strength and resiliency. Baby is such a sweetheart. He owns that his actions paint him as a player, but it was one with a purpose: to actually find Ms. Right. I found this position to be quite refreshing in a hero.

I quite enjoyed this pair together even though Katina’s constant ducking of uncomfortable truths occasionally drove me to distraction. I loved the ending, but I would have loved just a bit more detail about the final outcome of the villains and their ill-gotten gains. I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book from the author.

    Katina has served her time and was even able to get a degree. She's just making ends meet so any additional shift she can get at Sans is a plus. This shift started better than most when her boss Clover offers her the position of day manager. The position is one she can ill afford to pass up, not many places give convicted felons a chance. Parker 'Baby' Roman is thinking it's time to settle down and the woman he has in his sights is Katina.

The position is one she can ill afford to pass up, not many places give convicted felons a chance. Parker 'Baby' Roman is thinking it's time to settle down and the woman he has in his sights is Katina. There's something about her that very much appeals to him and it's not just her looks. He just needs to convince her to go out with him. While he does manage that, it's Katina who plans the date. Although she almost didn't go, she talks herself into it and of course not everything goes well. Especially when an ex of Baby's makes an appearance as they wait for their table. Other than a flat tire the rest of the date goes well and Katina agrees to a second. However there is one very important thing Baby doesn't know about her and she knows she has to tell him. Katina's hand gets force when a sleazy reporter shows up at Sans, she knows she'll have to tell Baby about her record, and hope they continue their budding relationship. His threats and innuendos are blatant, she has nothing to do with her parents and she certainly doesn't know where any inheritance her grandparents left might be. Un fortunately Baby hears it first from Haley and the reporter, but he isn't even a little put off by it. Although, he does call Tex for more information. For the moment the reporter shows up things take a twist, and some very interesting occurrences lead to some action and suspense. I love the way this relationship grows and heats up. Katina's limited knowledge leads to some very funny passages as well. I can't wait to see if Jen writes more in this multi-author crossover series.

    This is book 4 in the Search & Rescue series but it can absolutely be read as a standalone. In this one we get Katina and Parker's (Baby) story.

She hasn't told anyone about her past except a select few, and she'd to keep it to herself in the hoped of just moving on.

Baby is attracted to Katina but isn't sure how she feels since she is so quiet. When he decides to make his move and she agrees, he finds out how much he is truly attracted to her. But when her past comes back to haunt her even more than it already does, can he protect her? And can he show her that she is more than her past? I really liked this one! Katina had a crappy upbringing and the things she had to do to survive had a bearing on her life in ways she never truly expected. But she has a strength that pushed through and makes her never give up. She finds ways to survive and make a life for herself while never getting hardened or completely bitter. I loved her! She has a beautiful soul. Baby is this protective, alpha man that seemed to be a player but in all reality, he isn't that bad. And once he finds the person he was always searching for? His player days are over. He doesn't hesitate to help people in need or to stand up for someone who needs it. I just wish this story had been longer! I felt like there was so much to them and I wanted to know more!

Unfortunately her past catches up with her, and when her life ends up in danger, the seal team bands together to come to her rescue. Loved the storyline about getting your life back on the straight and narrow in spite of how it started. Lots of twists and turns along the way.

Will the past stay in the past so they can find a future? I have to confess that because I missed reading books 1 and 2, I was trying to figure out who all the characters were and felt I was missing some key items about them. I would have liked the characters to be a little older and more mature, but realize that’s a personal concern. Compared to other stories by this author, this was just ok. I was entrusted a copy of this book. The opinions expressed are solely my own.

    When you pick up one of Jen Talty’s books, you are assured of a good story, and this is NO exception to that. Katina Freedom is determined to prove she is more than her past, and she’s managed to convince Clover and Wyatt of her trustworthiness. And Baby has fallen for her, and he pursues her in the nicest of ways. I think what I liked best about this book was Baby’s faith in Katina. Too often the male character hears negative things about the other lead and believes them, and then there’s drama When you pick up one of Jen Talty’s books, you are assured of a good story, and this is NO exception to that.

Too often the male character hears negative things about the other lead and believes them, and then there’s drama to get him to get over himself. That does not happen here, and it really made the book for me. Oh and the closing line – you have got to groan at that! All in all, a good, if too-short read, with characters we’ve come to love from both the Operation Alpha world and Jen Talty’s own, and some baddies you’ll want to see vanquished. I received a free copy of this book. This review was posted voluntarily.

After a lot of work she finally excepts a date form him a date that is nearly ambushed by an ex but she know she will have to tell him her secrets will he except them or will he walk away Things will come to a head when she is taken hostage by a crazy journalist intent on finding money that may not even exists.

    Everyone deserved a second chance. Katina Gallager aka. Katina Freedom served her time for a huge mistake she made at the age of 16 and wanted to begin her life. Parker "Baby" Roman was attracted to Katina from the beginning, and hearing what she went through wouldn't change his mind. A brilliant well-written story. The characters developed throughout the story and the ending was awesome. I highly recommend this book and this talented author. Everyone deserved a second chance. Katina Gallager aka.

Always having to go alone she is surprised when she gets support and backing from ‘Baby’ Roman and his Seal team. A strong character driven story of twists and turns that keeps you reading from beginning to end even if it is early in the morning when you finish.

    Good read Katina met Baby while waitressing. He fell for her at first glance. She took a little longer. She was afraid to tell him that she had served 4 years in prison. Then a journalist started pestering her wanting the money supposedly left to her by her grandparents.

This would have been a decent read it I wasn't constantly pulled out of the story by the typos, inconsistencies, jumbled sentences, etc. For such a short book there were far, far too many issues. I'm sure this author can do better than this. Needs an editor!!!!!

    Secrets can be deadly Katina knows her secrets could cost her life...but if she tells people who she is she is judged and has no life, so it is no surprise she is a nervous wreck and constantly on edge. When her past comes calling she has to decide...does she trust Baby with her life? Baby has done a lot of growing up in the last few years but the minute he sees Katina he does a whole lot more. He knows she is his, his future, his one and his to protect.

I read this on Kindle Unlimited and enjoyed it as much as the first three books in the series, however there are a large number of typos and errors that have not been corrected during editing which is a little disappointing. This is not something I have found with Jen Talty's books before, so hoping it's a one off glitch.
