One Minute to Midnight by Nico Rossi

Ben's specialty is hand to hand combat; Mary is a sniper.  Both have a lot of additional skills.  They're in town, undercover, doing reconnaissance.  Someone is running guns from this location and they have covers that should allow them to ask questions legitimately.  The problem is that the town is guarded and the citizens are silent everywhere.  How much can they find out without getting in trouble?  Very little.

Carina Press allowed me to read this ebook for review (thank you).  It will be published July 18th.  This is the second in this series.

Ben is tough but Mary intrigues him.  Mary has secrets and keeps them.  She's strong and she's tough.  She has no room for men in her life.  She's his backup and she'll do that with a vengeance.  No one is taking him down on her watch. Ben is determined to make Mary doesn't get hurt.  He respects her and her abilities and they make a great team.  But they are fighting against great odds.

They work for a group that operates out at the edges of the law.  Most all of them are ex-military, many are special ops, and they're the ultimate warriors.  They'll need to be.  The whole town is involved in the gunrunning scheme, either actively or avoiding it totally.  It's just them until more forces are called in.  And it's getting harder and harder to stay alive.

There are sex scenes in the story as Mary and Ben begin sharing their pasts and enjoying their  evening breaks together.  It's a bit more graphic than I like but everything about this story is hot.

With lots of action and tense moments the author holds your attention and keeps you reading.  Special Ops always fascinates me.
