Talon (Uncompromising #1) by Sybil Bartel
Release Date: 01/03/16
I pretend to smile.
Two years ago my life was perfect, until it wasn’t. I scattered my wife’s ashes then walked away from the Marines. I didn’t think I had anything left to lose.
I was wrong.
The blond showed up at my surf shop, beaten and stabbed. I did what I was trained to do—I stitched her up. I didn’t have a clue who she was and I told myself I didn’t care. Until they came looking for her.
I swore I’d take my last breath before I let anyone else hurt her except I didn’t know she was keeping a deadly secret. Now I had two choices, her life or mine.
Marriage and combat taught me the same thing—I was no one’s hero. And I was about to prove it.

I didn't realize until I started reading Talon, that its a spin off from Sybil Bartel’s Unchecked series.. Although it clearly states that Talon is a standalone novel, I felt extremely lost at times when Characters I didn't know popped up!
Even with this, I did think this book overall was enjoyable and action packed. The next book in the series is about Neil, and I would love to read about him.
