This was a fairly decent read by a new-to-me author, Gennita Low. I liked it enough that I will likely seek out a few others in the series, hopeful that the writing style will even improve. The heroine, Marlena, is one tough chickie, a mysterious agent/assassin. "Stash" (Steve), our Navy SEAL hero sent to keep an eye on her, is no slouch either. I felt like it was a bit too "immediate unexplained reaction to one another" for my taste, but they were both action-oriented characters with neither si ...more

This was the debut novel by Gennita Low and I enjoyed it as much as the first time I read it years ago.
What I loved the most was the kickass heroine ..Marlena Maxwell, an infamous assassin is a cross between LARA CROFT photo download3_zps01109786.jpgand VAMPIRE SLAYER photo download1_zps5e2448f4.jpgand DANGEROUS ASSASSIN photo download2_zps88cfe9ab.jpgALL IN ONE.
She has no need to be saved by Prince Charming. She does her own saving. She plays by her own rules. She has no time for love and romance in her life and is not averse to get closer to someone that attracts her…but it will not side

Too much telling, not enough showing. Vague plot progression.

Steve is a former SEAL currently working for the CIA. Marlena is an assassin for hire who is under surveillance by the CIA. She just arrived in town and is waiting for a male assistant to work for her while she’s in town. The CIA kidnaps the assistant before she meets him and sends Steve in his place. The next day she has Steve accompany her on a clothes shopping spree, which is drudgery for him. That evening she has Steve

Gennita Low takes us into the heart-racing land of corporate espionage and government spy agencies with her romantic suspense, Into Danger. Steve McMillan's character, as a Navy Seal sent undercover, is written to "Alpha" perfection. But it is the character of Marlena Maxwell, the "world's most glamorous assassin", where Gennita's skills as a storyteller shine. Marlena is a highly intelligent and strong female character, that happens to be both combatant and competen. As more of her character is ...more

Too much romance and not enough action. This was the first book in a series with a Navy SEAL. I picked it up because I saw the word SEAL. While the male character was likable, I felt he was a little over the top as well as the female in the book. Too many acronyms to keep track of and initials instead of names makes my reading harder to comprehend who we are talking about.

Excellent. Strong characters, both men and women. Enough misdirection to keep you guessing. What I particularly appreciated about this book was that despite there being the whole angle of espionage and spy/SEAL tactics, I never felt too overwhelmed by the details, but there were enough to keep it interesting. The other great thing about the book is that both the male and female lead were strong and capable. So often the one (usually the female) gets neglected or turned into a doormat. While ther ...more

Great romantic suspense!

I loved this book! You have a tough, take charge woman clashing with a dominant man. You know things are going to be interesting! The intrigue and espionage were fantastic and I loved how Steve fell for his mermaid and wouldn't give up!

This is I believe my second book by Low and I'm still very happy with her spirits. Strong male AND female characters. Good suspense. Hot sex. Definitely Low stays on the to read list.

This book was full of surprises and I didn't want to stop reading it. But, the chapters were way too long, and many grammatical errors were found. I will probably read another book from this author.

Liked it but didn't love it. It was about 150 pages longer than it needed to be. It drug on unnecessarily FOREVER

Jul 28, 2009 Colleen rated it it was ok
I could not get into this book. Parts of it were good, but other parts just seemed to drag on for me. My eyes literally started to glass over and I found myself skipping through pages (especially at the end - I just wanted to be done with it). The characters were okay and their romance was good, but the story line in general was just flat out boring. I really hope the next book in the series is better (I already have it checked out from the library).
Dec 10, 2012 StrangeBedfellows rated it it was ok
This book is fun but read a little slow. I reached the halfway point and felt like I was done reading. The interaction between characters is written very well -- in fact, it's the best part of this book -- but the story, itself, didn't grip me. I kept thinking, "okay, this is good, but I'd like to move on to the next book in the series now." However, the ending scene with all the SEALs kicking butt is pretty cool, ended things on a nice high note.

Marlena is my type of heroine - competent, sexy, confident and not prone to TSTL moments. Like an Angelina Jolie-type operative. Steve fared less well with me as I felt he wasn't a strong enough hero to match Marlena yet I suppose anyone more alpha, cool and detached (like Jed) would have been a disaster in the making.

I loved how Marlena met Hawk and I would have given this book 5 stars if not for Steve.

It was slightly confusing for me, because of all the secrecy and missing information (I guess I was supposed to figure it out on my own?!?), but a good read.

A new romantic suspense to feed my Navy SEALS fetish. The first in this series S.A.S.S. features Steve McMillan. Steve is a delicious alpha male, as we would expect the Navy SEALS. This was an enjoyable and fast paced book. Recommended for those who enjoy intrigue, romance and good sexual tension.
Mar 15, 2013 Shannon rated it liked it
So....maybe the pain meds and antibiotic have messed with my brain because I didn't know what Marlena's Mission was until 3/4 if the way through the book, and even then I was sorta like have it. The end? It was good but the plot was a little awkward.
Jan 06, 2011 Felicia rated it it was amazing
Excellent! At first the book seemed a little slow. However, that gave a nice foundation for the story, so that when the action really picked up, it felt like I really knew the characters. Very enjoyable read.

Skipped half of this book as the love parts were to intense for my taste. The rest of the story was okay.
