the maze by Jennifer Lowery
…A game of survival tests their will and their love.
A mission she can’t forget…
The first female operative for the counterterrorism unit known as ATCOM, Atalanta Devayne is haunted by a former mission gone wrong. That mission led to her imprisonment, torture, and ultimate retirement, along with her loss of faith in the man she’d trusted with her life.
Brings his vengeance…
Former Navy SEAL, Noah Kincaid, bears the responsibility of Attie’s imprisonment and blames himself for not protecting her from drug lord Carlos Santiago. This time he won’t fail her.
In a deadly game of survival.
Santiago has resurfaced and set up an elaborate plan to exact his revenge on Attie by taking her brother hostage. The only way to save him is by revisiting the darkness of her past and relying on a man she can’t trust. In a battle of life or death, Noah and Attie are put to the test. They must face challenges to overcome the past and accept their feelings for each other before the danger that tore them apart separates them forever.

Do NOT read The Maze if you have:
A Heart condition
And if your heart is fine, still keep a defibrillator nearby
because I’m telling you, this is a non-stop, danger laden, action packed novel with a very fine romance fighting it’s right to occur between the constant near death situations.
Seriously, I could not put this book down, but I truly didn’t see how anyone but the evil man was going to survive this. Wait, there is more than one evil guy. But one is super-duper evil. And another evil guy does something helpful.
Now to be fair, this may be normal for this ‘you are going to die’ genre, but given my history, I tend to shy away from 'you are going to die' stories, but the way Jennifer overlays a romance into the action is perfection. I thought it riveting!
So, as long as your heart is healthy, definitely give this a read.
I give it five BULLETS and a bonus Heart.
