Secrets of Starting Over by Liz Borino

04_Secrets-of-Starting-Over-bDisclaimer MaleTAGTo have a chance of saving his life – and the lives of the people he loves – Rhett must ditch his plane in the Pacific Ocean. By destroying his physical tie to his home, he and Kaden can begin to heal. While Jordan and Aaron Collins run the search for the people who are threatening Rhett’s life, Kaden and Rhett are told to blend in and act as normal as possible, but normal is a relative term.

Kaden thrives as a nurse practitioner at the veteran’s clinic. His days are filled with challenging patient cases and the hustle of medicine. He’s grateful for the diversion, lest his mind become obsessed with familial concerns.

Rhett, on the other hand, has no such relief. Because he’s the one being targeted, his movement is restricted. He attributes coincidences to personal attacks. As they uncover more of the mystery, the team discovers he might be right. Danger comes from the most unlikely of places. And allies are found from a past long forgotten.addtogoodreads_zps55cd15da16Crystal Marie_s RamblingsTAG

Having been a fan of this series since I read the first book, I couldn’t wait for this one to be released. This series is one that is full of action, suspense, left me on the edge of my seat wondering what twists and turns Borino was going to take us on in this series.

I would say that to be able to fully grasp what is happening in this book, you do need to read the previous books. While Borino does give information covering the previous books, but to fully understand what is going on, you need to read the others.

But anyway, back to this book, I loved what Borino did with bringing the characters from the Angel’s Intuition series into it. And no, you don’t need to read that book before reading this one, if anything it will make you want to read that book after you finish this one. But for die-hard fans like myself, it was great to catch up with them and see how they were doing.

There is a lot of characters that are mentioned and have active roles in the book, but I really do believe that it doesn’t overload the book. All the characters are needed, for various reasons.

The drama and suspense that happens to Rhett and Kayden was just great! It really kept me on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next. The pages couldn’t turn quick enough. Considering everything that they have been through, I do think that this is a great conclusion to their story. But, with that in mind, I do also hope that Borino will continue to share updates on this couple in the future.

I would say that if you’re looking for a great new series to start that will hook you in and keep you wanting for more, then you should really give this one a shot!fivestarsPurchase LinksTAGAmazon –

“I don’t want you focused on the team because if you look hard enough you can always find something suspicious about anyone.”

“Not you.”

Aaron threw his head back and laughed for a solid twenty seconds, prompting the animals to come in and stare at him. He wiped the corners of his eyes as his guffaws turned to chuckles. “Thanks for that. No, actually if you did a proper background check on me you’d find out the CIA fired me for insubordination. I didn’t follow orders blindly.” He petted Tiny, who curled up at his side. Rhett didn’t need to prompt him to explain. “Jordan was deployed on a mission that went very wrong. The building he was in burned and his partner was found dead. They brought me his burned uniform and dog tags to prove the same thing happened to him.”

“Jordan? You mean—” Rhett stopped as the man in question walked through the front door with Lucy at his side.

“Yeah, him.” Aaron leaned up for a kiss, which Jordan had no qualms about giving.

“Talking about me?” he asked.

“I was telling him about why I got fired from the CIA. Your dad’s papers are on the table.” Aaron pointed to a file in the other room.

Jordan blinked at him. “How did you…?”

Aaron smiled. “You weren’t listening when I reminded you earlier.”

“How is he today?” Rhett asked.

“Annoyed that I’m making him ‘see the asshole’ when he’s supposed to be at the senior center with his girlfriend. If he doesn’t see her twice a week she might forget him and date one of the other men.” Jordan rolled his eyes and grabbed the file off the table. “They’re recreating high school there.”

“High school with dementia,” Aaron added with a kiss. “Have fun.”

“Now you’re just being mean,” Jordan joked.

“Can’t be properly mean with Rhett around.” Aaron waved him out the door. Jordan bid Rhett goodbye and left again. Aaron focused back on Rhett. “Anyway, the military was trying their damnedest to convince me my husband was dead. They went so far as to hold a funeral – which I refused to attend.”

The story knocked the air from Rhett’s lungs. “How did you know?”

Aaron shrugged. “I didn’t really, but no one offered me any proof that he was gone – until they did.”
