Former navy SEAL Ben Jackson knows that sexy "Mary Long" is nothing but a cover; that beneath the stylish clothes and flirty smile is a stone cold super-soldier no one ever gets close to. Until her kiss hits him like one of her sniper rounds. But Morris Flats is no place for a hookup—menace hums through the town, and the more the two operators keep pushing for answers, the more deadly the current seems to run. For former Special Forces sniper Mary Kuri, flirting with her muscular teammate feels like playing with fire. It's hard to tell where the cover ends and the real feelings begin. What she does know is they can't afford to lose focus. Their mission is to gather evidence, and with the gunrunners watching their every move, a single mistake could prove fatal. It's two against the world, and Ben and Mary are about to discover that not only do the lives of innocent people hang in the balance, but they're also fighting to save the rare connection they've found with each other.

Sometimes, out of evil comes something special and right. For two undercover operatives, heading into the mouth of the lion on a special op that could mean their deaths, and the continuation of a deadly gun-running operation that will kill thousands more.
Former Navy SEAL Ben Jackson and former Special Forces sniper, Mary Kuri have only each other to depend to have their backs and they only know the capabilities and the reputation of their partner, not the person under the hard as nails façade. They say that adversity makes for strange alliances, but what these two find is something both only dreamed of, a connection that started with danger to their persons and ends with a safe haven for their hearts.
One Minute to Midnight is military intrigue from start to finish as a corrupt town must be brought to its knees and their deadly clandestine operations ground to a halt. Bullets will fly, deceit runs rampant and even the town sheriff can’t be trusted. Follow Ben and Mary as they becomes the perfect team both on the streets and under the sheets while they discover there is room in their lives for love along with the job.
Nico Rosso has penned a rapid-fire suspense novel and paced it perfectly, feel the adrenaline rush as bullets are spraying, and the emotionally raw relationship building for two loners that have enough baggage in their pasts to weigh down their future if they let it. Great reading from an author who writes with crisp detail.
I received an ARC edition from Nico Rosso in exchange for my honest review.
