As his family left the graveside Devon stood there, rigid in the cold, staring at her ex-boyfriends coffin. Im so sorry, Ty. So very sorryDeadly Descent is the first book in the Romantic Suspense series, Bagram Special Ops by Kaylea Cross, and its also my first experience with this authors writing. I was excited to read this story because the central characters are not who we typically see in this genre SEALs, Rangers, Black Ops Agents, etc.; rather these men and women are working on the ...more

This is how I picture Cameron :)
I have never read a Kaylea Cross book before so didn't really know what to expect. I had seen quite a few raving reviews about this book and I had had it for quite a while but hadn't got around to reading it but as soon as I started the first chapter I knew that I was going to enjoy the rest of the book. I immediately tuned into ...more

OMG OMG I LOVED THIS BOOK! This was my first military romance and Kaylea Cross book, it will not be my last. This story was non-stop, a wonderful romance, it had me crying, scared and swooning! I loved the hero and heroine in this story, they were both tough,brave, caring, I immediately felt connect to these two. I actually liked all the characters in this story, I would welcome a book about any of them! The heat level is pretty low in this book, but the sexual tension and the chemistry between ...more

Once his funeral is over, Cam confronts the issue head-on and acknowledges the attraction he has for her and that it is not wrong but Dev isn't ...more
The story, characters, and writing... AMAZING!
Loved this story, and I can definitely see Candace & Ryan's book, as well as Maya & Jackson's story!
... can't wait *sigh*
The fact that she flew a Black Hawk and could talk shop with the best of them? Hot as hell. And her laugh. God, she had the dirtiest laugh hed ever heard. Every time he heard it he thought of sex. Hot, sweaty sex, the kind that left a man exhausted and weak and his partner unable to move.
Not only was this my first Kaylea Cross book, but its the first story Ive read thats centered around military-suspense. Devon, after losing her father in an airplane ...more
Kaylea Cross writes characters so well. Deadly Descent is no different in that regard. This romantic suspense novel is more romance and character based than suspense based. It's not a bad thing at all, I was really in the mood for something a little lighter, but still intense and Deadly Descent Delivered.
Black Hawk Medivac Pilot Devon Spike Crawfield has faced a lot of personal tragedy. Witness to ...more
I wish I could have loved this more. Not to say that it wasn't a great read but I didn't feel the same excitement reading this as I did with Kaylea Cross' Suspense series. I think there are a couple of reasons that put a dampener on it for me:
1) For the first half Devon was trying very hard not to be attracted to Cam. The reason for this is due to the fact that she is repressed by guilt and grief over the unfortunate passing of her boyfriend, who also happens to be Cam's best friend. I'm ...more
But I didn't rate it 5 stars for the thrilling combat scenes alone. Devon and Cameron were very HOT together. I gotta say that KC's H/h were never timid or annoying and sure enough, I loved Dev and Cam. They were very ...more
Been meaning to start a book by Cross forever! This was a nice intro to her writing. Lots of characters introduced, whom I assume get their own stories. I felt like there was a lot of backstory for this particular couple that we don't get. It's sort of glossed over, so that you get the feeling that they have this huge history, but in reality, the time they spend together falling in love is super minimal, so it was hard to understand them as a couple. The action scenes were awesome, ...more
Devon Crawford is an officer. She pilots Black Hawk helicopters during medical evacuations in the middle east, Bagram to be specific. She had been casually dating Ty, a parajumper who jumps ...more
There were times I felt a little disconnected. Like I had missed something, a conversation, an action, a relationship. But by the end, it didn't matter. I really liked Cam. Really liked Cam. A very worthy Alpha. He was tough, strong, intelligent, and very gentle. A bit of a romantic. Dev, not so much. I liked her, but didn't think she was really all ...more
I totally related with Devon. I can understand how she felt guilty for her feelings for Cam.
It's also very interesting reading about Afghanistan war. It made me feel very curious about it.
I'm reading the next one

I absolutely loved Ms Crosss Suspense series so was quite excited to get hold of Deadly Descent, the first book in her new Bagram Special Ops series.
Captain Devon Spike Crawford flies Black Hawk medical evacuations and has returned to Bagram, Afghanistan to serve. Doubting herself due to a recent mission she had to abort due to extremely poor weather conditions resulting in the death of her ...more
Greys Anatomy meets Black Hawk Down. Except this doesnt have the heartbreaking, soul-wrenching grittiness of the military docudrama, but makes up for it by having all of these adults hooking up with co-workers, supervisors, superiors just ...more
My only "beef" would be what others' have mentioned...it was a little lighter on the romance than i typically ...more
*Spoiler free review*
Even though the story started a little too slow to my liking this is another great story by Kaylea Cross.
This book is the first of a series that takes place in Bagram, a US military Afghan base. I really liked Devon, our heroine. She's a Black Hawk pilot and her job is to fly medical evacuations. I loved Cam. He's a pararescueman. If I understood well, he's a kind of special ops with field medic training.
These two fell for each other, but the problem is that ...more
Her love interest is a PJ, an Air Force parajumper with medical training. I didn't know about this ...more
This is an action-packed ride from the get go. It reads like a novella. The scenes are mostly contained and it take place over a very short period of time. It's concentrated. The characters are likeable and the battle scenes are really well written and the romance is hot. Enjoy for yourself!
My Thoughts: I've read a few romance novels where the hero was an ex-marine/navy/soldier, but Deadly Descent is as far from them as Cinderella is from Bridget Jones! Deadly Descent reads like a unique combination of action movie/documentary, the nonstop action and tension won't let up and you'll only catch your breath when you have finished reading it.
(I would ...more
I won this ebook from a giveaway through ExLibris. I have read 5 of Kaylea Cross' other books. The first book I read by her was Darkest Caress, a book from 2012 which I really liked. On the basis of that book, I bought her series of 5 books (that doesn't have a series name, but starts with Out of Her League and ends in Absolution) and stockpiled them for my vacation last week. I have to say I was very disappointed with that series of 5 books. There were so many medical errors in them, ...more

The fact that she flew a Black Hawk and could talk shop with the best of them? Hot as hell. And her laugh. God, she had the dirtiest laugh he’d ever heard. Every time he heard it he thought of sex. Hot, sweaty sex, the kind that left a man exhausted and weak and his partner unable to move.”
The smile died, his amused expression dissolving into shock. “What?”
“Yeah. So you have to come back so I can finish the job.”
A jumble of emotions swirled in the blue depths of his eyes as he stared at her. Then he broke into a wide smile and brought a hand up to cradle her cheek. “I’m coming back, sweetheart. I wouldn’t miss that chance for the world.”
