The BookWhisperer's Rating: 

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 . . .

 The Taken novella is a perfect introduction into a little bit of Raider’s past (first introduced in Hidden) but mainly focuses on Holt and Faye – the past love, their present situation, and their future lives.

Holt finds he has a half-brother who has ran away with an older woman. Since he shares the same abusive father, Holt knows what his brother has been through. Knowing that his brother is in a lot of danger, Holt accepts the task of joining Faye to bring him home.

Their present situation brings back a lot of old memories and feelings for each other that they fight at first but slowly let them take over. Holt and Faye are two wonderful characters that we got a short story about that was wrapped up in a bow of happiness at the end. Hooray!
