The moment Jasper heard Emily Jenkins' sultry voice he was transfixed. 

An instant and heated reaction that wound its way through his soul and warmed his skin. The inexplicable connection was broken as fast as it began. Emily has a son. Jasper doesn't "do" kids. 

When her life spirals out of control, will Jasper be able to let go of his tragic past and save Emily and her son? Or has the Special Forces Soldier found his weakness - a history he cannot let go of?

Emily Jenkins lost her husband on the battlefield and was left to pick up the pieces of her broken heart while finding a way to raise her son alone.

Jasper Walker is known for being the playboy of his team. Professionally, he is a tier one assassin - a trained killer. Personally, he blows through women giving them no more than a week in his bed as he privately struggles to move on from the woman that is forever lost to him. 

When their lives collide, Jasper finds out he's not the only one with secrets. There is more to the black-haired beauty Emily than a widowed single mother.

I have not read the first book in the 707 Freedom series, but that didn't matter, as the author did a fantastic job of making the book a standalone, and it totally didn't stop me from being swept up in the heartbreak and the drama.

When it comes to the characters you cannot help thinking that Jasper is a bit of a manwhore, but what you cannot help to realize is that his flirty, 7-day time limit with women, and solely focusing on the job, is just a mask to hide the pain from his past. And then there is Emily, a widow, and hard-working women, solely supporting her 6 year old son Jason. Both Jasper and Emily are determined not to get into a relationship, but fate has a different angle, especially when ghosts of the past come to haunt them.

Now I'm not going to go into any more of the story, as that would give it away, but I will stay that the writing is excellent and even though military romance has been written in every conceivable way, the author Riley Edwards puts a new spin on it, that you cannot help but enjoy.

I give Freeing Jasper 5 stars!
