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. ...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.
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.

The pacing was slow and I couldn't buy into the hero waxing poetic about his long lost love for pages and pages. This was a DNF for me and I won't be continuing with the series.

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

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

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

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.

The characters were believable without being out of touch. The idea of disasters and terrorism was unique.

Been reading a lot of Delta Force/Navy Seal/Super Spy romantic suspense thrillers lately. This one is good but not great.

Loved the book ... Great mystery. Loved the characters and the background of each character. Not whole lot of sex but still a great romance.

Boring characters. Boring story. No suspense in a "romantic suspense". Not the worst book I have ever read, hence a 2 star rather than 1 but pretty day boring.

Somewhat entertaining but flawed. My full review is here:
