Sadly 1 star – Romantic Suspense

Why did I read this? Well, I love military romantic suspense and of course the smokin’ hot cover didn’t hurt matters. But I understand now why there are such low ratings because unfortunately, the cover is the best...possibly only...redeeming thing about this book.

It just didn’t work for me or hold my all. The love scenes are odd, giggle inducing, and have very flowery prose, especially for a military romantic suspense read.

DNF. made it to pg 70. I can't stand the heroine and she was just reunited with hero who she has a big past with and it made no sense. Also tons of information overload. Can't get into it.
Funny. The description here lists the main female's character as "Mia Santiago" but in the book her last name is Austin. She is described as a "blatina" (author's word, not mine for 1/2 African-American, 1/2 Latina). So why was her named changed? To sell more books? FAIL. I don't have high standards for smut and even by those, this book was poor. Judging by the other comments on here about this book, I'm pretty darn spot-on. You want "Special Ops" along with your smut? Read Stephanie Tyler. She' ...more
I was so disappointed in this book. It had a topic which I don't think I have read before geological terrorism. I found it hard to get into the characters especially Dr. Mia Austin, what I really found annoying was her inner dialog. Captain Ryan Mason of Delta Force when he was with 2 members of his team was ok. There was no chemistry between Ryan and Mia that I could see. I read all the book, but at times I taught to forget about it. I was waiting for some major action after all these guys are ...more
I really like LA Banks, but the only thing I didn't like about this, is that the men almost talked too much. Most of the alpha male posturing is short and sweet and here I thought they kept going just for the sake of continuing. Otherwise, I liked the story. I liked the heat between Ryan and Mia. Overall good story, just too much excessive male dialogue. You expect it from the women...not the men.

I really enjoyed this story. I liked Mia and Ryan and was glad that they got a second chance.

Mia Santiago is the lead scientist working on geological warfare. Unfortunately, she has gotten the attentions of terrorists wanting the information to use against the United States and possibly elsewhere. Ryan Mason a captain in delta force has been ordered to go to a meeting to guard scientists that might be kidnapped to use in a terrorist plot. He does not expect to see Mia there. Mia and Ryan were lo
Apart from the first three pages where the hero had a blast from the past of his ex, the story did very little for me. It certainly didn't 'sizzle and burn' me. On the contrary, it left me feeling flat and cold.
Alexis Grant, in her debut novel Sizzle and Burn, introduces readers to Mia Austin and Ryan Mason. Mia and Ryan are madly in love. After spending two weeks of making love, they knew they were meant to be together. However, both walked away from each other and chose their careers.

Ten years later, Mia and Ryan paths cross again. Dr. Mia Austin, studying under Dr. Ian Cortland, professor at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural Science, was slated to present her research on utilizing natural d

Romance Rating: 3/5 <3

Mia and Ryan were two people madly in love, but the lives they chose took them in very different directions. Although there were no hard feelings between them, fate had other plans. Years later, they're brought together again, only one of them is in grave danger. It's up to the other to save their life.

Ryan is the type of man that really defines a hero. He chose to go into the military to help people, I mean genuinely help peop
This is book 1 in Alexis Grant's Men of Delta Force series. As far as the romantic suspense goes, this is a fun read. The book has an interesting take on global terrorism, focusing on the possibility of geological terrorism - what would happen if a terrorist organization targeted susceptible geological plates thus setting off massive earthquakes and destruction.

I liked that the two characters had a previous relationship. The tension arises when it is clear that Mia and Ryan had poor timing and

Sizzle and Burn... Fizzled and Extinguished.

This was suppose to be a sexy military story about a hot alpha-man and a girl from the other side of the tracks.
Nah, the best thing about this book was the cover. I had a hard time reading this, it read like a 4th grade romance.
I had a hard time connecting with the characters. The plot was bad and at times I had WTF moments.
I would recommend any Catherine Mann book over this one is a second.
for a debut novel..pretty good...

story dragged in a few places....but overall it was really good & has lead me to read the 2nd book...

LOTS of action towards the end of book, which made the read worthwhile

Somewhat entertaining but flawed. My full review is here:

DNF. Was able to tough it out until chapter 8, but that was it. Worse book I've ever read. Won't be reading this author in the future.
Michele Grant
Been reading a lot of Delta Force/Navy Seal/Super Spy romantic suspense thrillers lately. This one is good but not great.
I enjoyed this book, there were a few problems with it but overall I thought it was good for a first book.
The characters were believable without being out of touch. The idea of disasters and terrorism was unique.
I just couldnt do it. I could not get into this book. Bummer cause it seemed to potential. Oh well.
Misty Boyd
It wasn't my normal genre to read so I may have been biased. I thought it was ok but not my fav.
Ruth Ellen

Exciting,exhilarating,loaded with action.
Jenny Orbeta
