Sacrifice Love (Saints Protection & Investigation Series) by Maryann Jordan

Saints Protection & Investigations

A private investigation business, pulling together men from the CIA, FBI, ATF, DEA, Border Patrol, SEALS, and police, devoted to the missions no one else wants or can solve.

Chad Fornelli was used to a life of sacrifice, as a former ATF ordnance disposal expert. At the funeral of Adam, his friend and former ATF partner, saying goodbye was not the hardest part of the day for Chad. It was seeing his friend’s widow and remembering how he let the woman he loved two years earlier get away.

Full of regrets over missed chances, he vowed to correct his past mistakes.

Dani Turner had watched the man she love walk away two years ago and now buried her husband. Wondering if she and Chad had another chance together, she was willing to see if they had a future. But…her little surprise might change everything.

The investigation into the explosion that killed Adam had Chad racing against the clock to stop an ISIS cell in Virginia from building more bombs. And evidence pointed to his friend being involved with the terrorists.

Untangling the mystery, Dani was caught in the terrorist’s crosshairs as she and Chad worked together to prove Adam’s innocence…and save her life.

Will they be able to live long enough to have their second chance?

I received an author's copy of this story for an honest review.

The Saints Protection & Investigation Series is back with a new standalone - Sacrifice Love.

What I Loved: Author Maryann Jordan is able to put a fresh spin on each case handled by the Saints Protection & Investigation Team and Sacrifice Love features a relevant and frightening case involving terrorism and sleeper cells. The story kept me guessing until the very end. There is a strong emphasis on the importance of family and friendship in Sacrifice Love that I found endearing. Also Maryann does some of the best epilogues giving readers glimpses of the main characters enjoying their HEA months and even years down the road. Sacrifice Love had two of the sweetest epilogues and was a great cap to the story.

What I Didn't Love: While I enjoyed Sacrifice Love I didn't have as strong connection with Chad or Dani as I have with the other heroes and heroines in the Saints Protection & Investigation Series. I'm not sure if it was the complexity of the case or the volume of secondary characters, but I wasn't as invested in the main pair as I have been in Jordan's previous stories.

Favorite Quotes:

"Her eyes were puffy and red. Her hair was falling out of the sloppy bun. Dark circles underneath her eyes accentuated her pale complexion. And she never looked more beautiful."

"Slow and easy is good. I've got to rebuild your trust in me, and babe? I'm going to do just that."

"You never have to thank me for loving you, babe. Being with you... is my life. My dream. The one I thought I gave up. So every minute with you is a miracle to me."

Over the last few Saints books Maryann Jordan has slowly started building on Saints team member Luke. I am definitely intrigued can't wait for his story. I hope it is one of the next in the series.

Happy reading.
