This is a Christmas Novella continuing the story between Mason and Tesla!
Mason loves his life with Tesla, but living together isn’t enough. He wants more. He wants it all. He wants forever.
All set to make this a memorable Christmas for the two of them, he calls her at home and hears her cry out as she fights off an attacker. Racing to her rescue, he finds her missing – again.
Determined to put the horrific memories behind her, Tesla is looking forward to a bright and happy future. But someone nursing a grudge has decided it’s payback time.
Their lives change in a flash as Mason races to save Tesla before they lose their future – and each other.
Yes I know this is a Christmas book and it’s May, but that’s where this book fell in my reading and in the series order.
I’m not sure who I feel worse for, Tesla or Mason. I swear every time this woman turns around she’s being grabbed by the bad guys, much to Mason’s dismay and panic.
“You’re getting your name and face out in some high profile cases. Shadow and I, we’re there but always in the background, which is the way we like it. But you…”
Mason stared at the oil, his mind trying to figure out what the deal was. “It must be the oil filter gasket.”
“Maybe.” Only Shadow’s voice was bland, neutral. Too neutral. “But I doubt it.”
“I’ll call a tow truck. Maybe one of you can give me a lift home?” Mason asked. “I’ll try to put a rush on getting this repaired.”
“I will,” Swede said as Mason made the necessary call. “And I’ll stay here and wait for the tow truck,” Shadow muttered as he peered under the truck. “I want a closer look at the damage.”
Torn, Mason stood undecided. He needed to know if this had been done deliberately. They saw too much in their lives to let anything go by chance.
“Have you heard from Tesla in the last couple of hours?” Swede asked in a low voice.
Shit. Mason pulled out his phone and called her. Swede was right, if anyone had done this it was more likely to get at her than at him. Why hadn’t he thought of that?
“Mason?” Her sweet voice filled his ear. “I thought you’d be home by now.”
Relieved, he quickly filled her in on the truck.
“Oh no, that’s terrible.” A soft gasp sounded. Then silence.
“Tesla?” Mason asked, his voice rising. “What happened Tesla? Talk to me…”
He spun to stare at his men and said in a dark voice, “She stopped talking mid-sentence.”
“Like she was hit? Or…”
He didn’t answer. Mason was already sprinting to Swede’s truck. As they raced out of the parking lot, he could see Shadow back on his feet, his phone out in his hand calling more men in. Mason lost sight of him as Swede drove his truck out of the parking lot. They weren’t far from his house, but it seemed like hours. Longer. The truck finally ripped into his driveway at the same time Cooper and Evan drove up from the opposite direction.
The front door was closed…and locked. Frowning, Mason unlocked it and barreled inside.
“Tesla? Are you here?” he yelled as he ran into the kitchen then on to her office at the back of the house. She’d been working on a problem with one of her programs and wanted to do the troubleshooting here in private even though she had a secure office on the base. But she hated interruptions and worked better in her own surroundings. She’d promised that nothing she was working on would be helpful to anyone in any way and that she’d be in no more danger working from here than from the office. As nothing untoward had happened since their first initial meeting, he’d believed her. Now as he stared in horror at the upturned chair and loose papers strewn across the floor, he realized he shouldn’t have.

Now Tesla is become a bit of a pro at this stuff and she still has her phone although it’s dying. I love this woman!
We see all the team and there are lots of surprises that are happy mixed in with all the bad.
A fast paced, kind of scary and intriguing tale as Mason and the team go after the people involved.
I am just inhaling these books, I love them so much.
