Synopsis and Details:
As a former field surgeon in Afghanistan, Heather Fontaine is used to life-or-death situations. She just didn’t expect them to follow her home. When she returns from a party to find that someone has broken into her house–and threatened her friends–she assumes it is the stalker who has been following her and creeping her out. She hopes to find safety and peace of mind by leaving the city and hiding out in a small town. But trouble has followed her even there.
Luckily, a stalker isn’t the only one watching Heather. Travis Walker has been secretly watching out for her for weeks. As owner of his own security agency, it’s what he does. Together, Travis and Heather must figure out who wants her dead–and why–before it’s too late.

Review with Rating:
Active Defense is the third book in the Danger Never Sleeps series and I loved that this story had characters from earlier books as a part of the story. Which was very nice since their friendships started when they were stationed together and I liked their camaraderie. Heather had always been a good friend but she was also the one to never ask for help when she needed it. She had learned a long time ago that there was only one person she could rely on, herself, but in this story, she was going to learn what it meant to let someone in. To appreciate what she had around her all along. It was just going to take a few life-or-death situations for Heather to see clearly and trust in others.
There were a few twists in Active Defense that kept me on the edge of my seat and even managed to surprise me. I really liked Travis in this story because he was a good friend to Heather and he never asked for anything in return, even though he did have a crush on her. There was plenty of action that took place and thank goodness that characters in this story had special military training because they really needed it. There are a few nail-biting scenes as well as some heart touching ones. Overall, Active Defense was an action-packed story that had a nice mystery as well as a romance that will melt your heart. It was a fun read and I can’t wait to see what comes next in this series!!
