3 ½ stars – Romantic Suspense

Overall I liked this, but I have to be honest, some of the dialogue was on the silly and mushy side, so there were times it came across a little bit cheesy, rather than intense and dramatic like I think it was aiming for. The heroine’s nagging and denigrating of the hero was a little annoying to me, even if he was a cold, stubborn, self-punishing, “I don’t deserve happiness or love” jerk sometimes and she was just trying to help him heal. Also, her quick personality...more
These SRS stories are hit and miss. Lucky for me, this one was a definite hit and a very pleasant surprise.

Though it didn't concentrate that much on the suspense, the imminent "threat" constantly hovered in the background, keeping the reader, and the two leads, "grounded in reality".

I absolutely loved Jake "Howdy" Harrington with his cool, icy facade, lack of expression and (apparent) lack of feelings. I just knew there was so much more hidden deep inside and the heroine, Shannon, caught on quic...more
Cindy Dees has a way of writing "no way could that happen" action/adventure/romance stories that I totally ENJOY. My only complaint is that I wish she wrote longer books!! She's one of the only authors I'll buy from harlequin/silhouette.

This one was no exception - I loved the shut-down (emotionally) sniper paired with the emotionally strong (once victim) woman. The story takes place over just a few days, but somehow between the fact that our heroine had a long time to heal combined with the way...more
From the beginning of the story I was intrigued by the main character Jake Harrington. The author’s meticulous description of his mannerisms and the reasoning behind them were quite convincing. She built a very textural, real character for me to latch on to. The plot moved the story along, adding tension and the edge you expect from a romantic thriller. The heroine is a strong female lead with a very interesting back-story and the polar opposite to our hero.

The elements were all there but the p...more

Hiding from a man, who attacked her in her bed, in St. George seemed like the perfect idea to Shannon McMahon. However, trouble finds her anyway when military sniper, Jacob "Jake" Harrington informs her he needs to use her apartment to gain visual on one of the most sought after terrorist. Since her attack 7 years ago, Shannon wants nothing to do with the male species, especially letting one stay with her. It takes Jake showing her he means no harm before she allows him to stay. The longer they...more

If you're looking for a short page-turner with a huge emotional payoff, pick this one up. Ms. Dees knows her subject matter from the inside out, and it shows in this unusually stirring tale of finding one's strength amidst the most frightening of foes. I was surprised at how far the author went with the hero's violent nature, not all of which is offstage, but all that depth and darkness was necessary to achieve the shocking and thoroughly satisfying climax.
I love Charlie squad. Dees has really brought this team to life. Howdy has always been a character that's been hard to pin a personality on. But I loved how he empowered Shannon and how she brought him back to the land of feeling.

Because the book takes place over such a short period of time, you're required to suspend belief, but I'm willing to do it with this team of soldiers.

Another wonderful entry in her series
Paula Graves
Fantastic action sequences. Dees is great with the lingo, the military elements. My only real quibble was with the heroine's ping-ponging emotions and her tendency to talk entirely too much once she got going. The hero was terrific, with very unique quirks that fit his character.
Who doesnt love a bad ass military man ready to kick some ass for you?! Loved Jake! A great short read!! Loved it!!
