Summary from

Former Navy SEAL Travis Blake is a rising star in the security business. In two short years, Blake Security Inc. has become highly sought after by the who’s who in Washington DC.

But unbeknownst to many, Travis is haunted by the mysterious death of his wife three years before. He carries with him the guilt of not being there to protect the one person who meant everything to him. He has buried his wife, but his heart refuses to accept that the body six feet under is hers. His obsessive search for her leads him deep into the trenches of covert ops—and everything is not what it seems.

Caitlin Kincaid has been on the run for a while. The sum of her memories began three years ago when she awakened with a broken arm and leg and a severe concussion. Hunted down by a secret group within the U.S. government, her companion persuades her to stay off the grid because of the standing kill order on their heads. One night, while fleeing assassins, she is left on the side of the road with a cryptic message: “It’s time for you to stop running. I’m not the one you love.”

When Travis receives news that the woman who has turned up at the American Embassy in Berlin could be his wife, he wastes no time getting to her. He is unprepared for the devastation that shreds him when Caitlin looks at him with no recognition in her eyes. Amnesia is a challenging enough obstacle for winning the love of his life back. But with lies defining the past three years of her life, Caitlin becomes wary of anyone’s help.

Love was never the problem. A marriage cannot survive without trust. As sinister forces threaten the bond they are trying to rebuild, trust must come quickly or one of them will die.

My review:

It’s Always Been You is the story of Travis Blake, a former Navy Seal who lost his wife three years ago.  One day he gets a call that they have found his wife – only she doesn’t know who Travis is.  His wife, Sarah, now known as Caitlin Kincaid, was in a terrible accident and suffers from amnesia.  She had been on the run for three years with her partner, Jase, who ends up dying.  Caitlin is devastated – Travis is pissed!!

Travis decides he is going to win his wife back at all costs.  Travis is an alpha male on par with any of Kristen Ashley’s alphas.  He is like a lioness protecting his cub when it comes to Caitlin.  Caitlin, it turns out, was an agent in a super secret CIA sector and has some bad ass skills, aka female like Jason Bourne.  This was pretty cool, actually, and came in handy a few times throughout the book.  The people who were looking for Caitlin, and the reason why, seemed believable, and it was certainly interesting.

The chemistry between Caitlin and Travis from the get go was intense.  The sex scenes were steamy.  You were cheering for these two to find love again.  The story moved at a nice pace, had a nice supporting cast that I’d like to read more of, and two characters you really loved.  This was a good read, and I would recommend it.
