About the book:

A hunt for dangerous secrets leads to explosive chemistry in this exhilarating romantic suspense novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Off the Grid.

A team of Navy SEALs go on a mission and disappear without a trace--they are The Lost Platoon.

With his men scattered to all corners of the globe after a disastrous secret op in Russia, Lieutenant Commander Scott Taylor is trying to find out who was responsible for leaking the information that killed half his platoon. Were it not for Natalie Andersson, the woman he'd been secretly dating in the Pentagon who'd warned him of the danger, he knows they'd all be dead. Scott is devastated when he hears that the woman he loved and hoped to marry has been killed for helping him--until he learns that Natalie was the spy who betrayed them. But when his search to clear his name brings him face-to-face with a very much alive Natalie, Scott realizes that justice and vengeance might not be as clear-cut as he thought.

Natalie Andersson, or as she was born Natalya Petrova, has put the memories of her early childhood in Russia behind her. She never dreamed that she would be at the center of an elaborate "sleeper" espionage program. Even when she learns the truth, she refuses to spy for the country of her birth, until the Russians threaten the lives of the only family she's ever known. But Natalie is the worst spy in the history of spying, falling for her target. When her attempt at misdirection leads to irreversible consequences, she's forced to run for her life, with her lover hot on her tail.
My Thoughts:
I’ve loved every book in this series, and I’m thrilled that we get not only one romance, but two! I’ve been waiting for Kate and Colt’s romance since they’ve been featured in bits and pieces with every installment and I was thrilled they got equal page time with Natalie and Scott.  Both romances were amazing! Explosive chemistry and a bit of angst as they each must sort the past out, and find out the who was responsible for the attack on SEAL Team Nine. 

I do think this series is best to read the series in order, but that’s no chore because all the stories are exciting, addictive, and filled with sexual tension and sizzle! I’m wondering if this is the last book in the series? If it is, Out of Time ends The Lost Platoon series perfectly, but I’ll be sad to say goodbye to the characters!
