Hunter Holt grew up a foster kid, is an ex-soldier and right
now a reclusive park guide until the day he finds out a
surprise half brother was TAKEN.
Faye arrives with news from their foster mother, the woman
who saved them all, Miss Angelina, that he had a brother
named Jackson and this young teen is in trouble. The last
thing Faye wanted to do was find Hunter. Five years ago had
been a terrible time and they had both walked away. A
"brother" was lost to them in the middle east war and for
her, a patient to suicide so neither was in a place to help
the other's deal with grief. But being eye to eye again
brings back all the feelings they could never walk away
from. Can they find each other and put their hearts back in
place? Can they save the unknown brother from the dangerous
path he is now on?
TAKEN is an emotional ride with a few unexpected twists and
some very unforeseen appearances from other members of Ms.
Zanetti's series. These foster children had made a life
together (Raider Tanaka from Rebecca Zanetti's Requisition Force
series is one of the fosters in this family) but tragedy had
forced the young lovers apart and Hunter in seclusion. The
emotional ride is mostly the readers watching as Faye (who
has a habit of changing her last name every few months), and
Hunter realize that the only thing important in the world
was the love they shared. That and rescuing his little
brother from a crazed, blood thirsty teacher, Louise, who
has convinced the hungry young man she loves him.
TAKEN is hard core emotionally tense read, but there are a
few lighter moments. Tanaka joins his family and brings
along Wolfe. If you have not read the Requisition Force
books yet, you must! Wolfe is a scary guy, who carries
around a kitten, named Kat in his pocket, and keeps trying
to date every woman he meets including Faye and a reporter
named Dana (who just might be brave enough to do it). Then
when they are close to catching up to Jackson and Louise,
they come across two guys in the forest and are told they
are trespassing. Both men are 6 foot 6, camo and boots who
introduce themselves a Dage and Talen. Fans will know these
Ms. Zanetti writes in a way that has her readers living
among the characters and feeling what they feel. TAKEN will
have you on an emotional roller coaster, mix in some laugh
out loud moments, fear, danger, a good bit of sizzle and you
have one amazing read!
Hunter Holt might be the most stubborn ex-soldier ever born,
but when he's called on to help find a lost foster kid, he
jumps into action. Even if it means working with the woman
who broke his heart five years ago--the woman who still
haunts his dreams . . .
Faye Smith has spent five long years trying to get her life
back on track. She knows she should've turned toward Hunter
and not away from him, but they both had too many demons to
destroy. Maybe now they'll get another chance--and save
someone else's life too . . .
But first they'll have to stop arguing long enough to trust
the Deep Ops team. Hunter was a lost boy himself once. In
fact, he ran away from the exact same man, their monster of
a father. Now he and Faye will have to unite to find the
brother he never knew--and maybe each other . . .
