While investigating border violence in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, Denver journalist Natalie Benoit is caught in a bloody ambush and taken captive. Alone in the hands of ruthless killers, she will need every ounce of courage she possesses to survive.
Betrayed by another operative, Deputy U.S. Marshal Zach McBride has endured a week of torture and interrogation at the hands of a bloodthirsty Mexican drug cartel. Ready to give his life if he must, he remains unbroken - until he hears the cries of an American woman.
Although Natalie is only a voice in the darkness of their shared prison, her plight brings renewed strength to Zach's battered body. With her help, he overpowers their captors, and they flee through the desert toward the border, the attraction between them flaring hotter than the Sonoran sun.
But past loss and tragedy leave both of them reluctant to follow their hearts, even when the passion between them reaches its breaking point. Faced with feelings neither expected, they fight to stay ahead of the danger that hunts them as forces more powerful than they can imagine conspire to destroy them both…
Breaking Point begins with Natalie going on a trip to Mexico with several other journalists. While there she gets kidnapped by the local drug cartel/human traffickers. She's taken to a cell where there is a man in the cell next to her who has been there for almost week already being tortured. Natalie has no idea what's going to happen to her, and she uses the man in the next cell as a life line not knowing that he's actually one of the good guys. Zach knows he needs to help the woman if he can but he's hurt, and knows hes probably only has a few days left so he has no hope for Natalie or himself. Until she gets the chance to escape, and help him out of there herself. While these two form a way to get away from their captors, and away from Mexico they also start to form a relationship. But both of them have lots of problems in that department. They each have a past that they have to let go in order for them to be together, and they each have to worry about how they will get out of all of this alive as well.
This book has lots of action, suspense, drama, and romance. It was wonderful. I enjoyed Natalie and Zach together. But my favorite parts where with Zach, and the other guys from previous books. It was so cool to see them work together, and to see their friendship. I kind of wish there was a book with just the guys point of view on these things that happen to them. Anyways, the first half of this book was the best part. Then in the middle it seemed to get a little bit boring, but it picked up pretty quickly after that and then ended on a wonderful note. And now I'm looking forward to more in this series as well!
