"A hunt for dangerous secrets leads to explosive chemistry in this exhilarating romantic suspense novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Off the Grid.

A team of Navy SEALs goes on a mission and disappears without a trace--they are the Lost Platoon.

With his men scattered to all corners of the globe after a disastrous secret op in Russia, Lieutenant Commander Scott Taylor is trying to find out who was responsible for leaking the information that killed half his platoon. Were it not for Natalie Andersson, the woman he had been secretly dating in the Pentagon who had warned him of the danger, he knows they would all be dead. Scott is devastated when he hears that the woman he loved and hoped to marry has been killed for helping him--until he learns that Natalie was the spy who betrayed them. But when his search to clear his name brings him face-to-face with a very-much-alive Natalie, Scott realizes that justice and vengeance might not be as clear-cut as he thought.

Natalie Andersson, or, as she was born, Natalya Petrova, has put the memories of her early childhood in Russia behind her. She never dreamed that she would be at the center of an elaborate "sleeper" espionage program. Even when she learns the truth, she refuses to spy for the country of her birth, until the Russians threaten the lives of the only family she has ever known. But Natalie is the worst spy in the history of spying, falling for her target. When her attempt at misdirection leads to irreversible consequences, she is forced to run for her life, with her lover hot on her tail."

My Thoughts:

This series has been a ride and I am so glad I finally have my answers. There were a lot of twists and turns along the way, but in the end this series delivered.

This book did take me a bit to get into, which has kinda been consistent through this series, but once I get into the story I REALLY get into the story and devour the rest of the book. At about the 45% mark I just could not stop. I really adored Scott and even though it took a bit for me to warm up to Nat, I loved her in the end. I gotta admit though that Colt and Kate are who stole the show for me. I have been invested in those two since the first book and they both made my heart happy in this one. A certain scene towards the end had me both super happy and super nervous, but of course it takes something big to make those two finally start moving forward.

I also loved that this book kept me on edge. The suspense angle was done so well and I was so nervous about it that sometimes I was like “okay okay enough kissing, I need to know what’s going on here.. kiss after we get answers”. But because I’m me, the romance was also great. Romantic suspense is such fun when done right and here it’s done right.

Out Of Time was a really enjoyable read and I’m so glad I have my answers. I think this is the end of this series but I wouldn’t mind catching up with these characters again in the future.
