Title: The Edge Of Courage
Series: Red Team, #1
Author: Elaine Levine
Rating: 3 Shooting Stars

Step into Elaine Levine's exciting new series of alpha warriors--products of the government's secret corps of assassins called the Red Team: 

 Haunted by memories he cannot reach, stalked by an enemy bent on revenge . . . 

 Rocco Silas has come home to Wyoming after long years as a Red Team operative in Afghanistan. It isn't easy returning to civilian life, especially burdened as he is with a staggering case of PTSD or hunted as he is by an enemy determined to seek an eye-for-eye--neither of which can he battle until he confronts the truth of what happened one fateful day in the high mountain ranges of the Hindu Kush. . . . 

She alone holds the key to his sanity.

 Mandy Fielding's dream of opening a therapeutic riding center on her family's ranch is almost within her grasp--until she hires Rocco Silas, a dangerous ex-Spec Ops friend of her brother's. His haunted eyes and passionate touch promise a love she never dared believe possible. Can they confront the truth of his past and build a future together or will the enemy stalking him destroy them both?

The Edge of Courage begins with Rocco just getting out of his seven year undercover job in Afghanistan. He lost his wife, and child over there. And a piece of his memory as well. He can't seem to figure out that last piece of the puzzle even though he wants to badly so he can go back and try to look for his son. But while he's trying to get his head on straight his friend Kit offers him a job at his sister's ranch to help out, and to figure out what is going on there since she's been having problems lately.

 Mandy never expected her brother to have someone show up on the day she told him she was having problems. She thinks its nothing serious, and that no one in her home town would dare try to hurt her or her dreams. And when she sees Rocco she knows he his suffering and needs help so after debating on it she decides to give him the chance to work for her. But neither of them thought they would have to fight on the attraction between them until its just to much to bare that they have to give into it. Along the way the book takes a ton of twists and turns that totally blew my mind. 

 The book was okay. It felt like the first half was the romance, and then the rest of the book was just special "red team' action. Not that's completely bad I just felt like it wasn't exactly balanced well. And I also felt like it was almost two different stores in one. The book also seemed to be introducing a lot of the other problems that could happen in other books. But I was happy with the ending for the most part. At least for Rocco and Mandy they have sort of an hea with a little twist to it. So I liked the book, but it wasn't great.
