This is all me, my mood, and my preferences. There is nothing wrong with this book; everything happening is pretty typical of romance, and romantic suspense in general. It just wasn't what I expected when I started it.

At 72%, when Risto tells Callie how he has been with many women, and found that bondage heightens their pleasure and how he has enjoyed giving women pleasure like that......I just realized I was done (Already since the 2 month separation, I had kind of detached from the r
A very good 4.5 stars. Second bk in the series and doesn't disappoint. Strong rugged alpha male (Risto) and kickass female partner (Calista/Callie) picks up just after bk 1.5 of the SSI series. Fun, sexy, fast paced action/adventure story with entertaining side characters that I hope to read about in future bks. Ren and Keely as well as a few other characters are mentioned from bk 1 and 1.5. Hoping Keely's brothers will find their partners as the series moves along. Bring on bk 3, the sooner the ...more

Another great suspenseful story.
Calista is a famous model, when she isn't doing modeling she is raising her twin brothers who soon will be off to college. Thinking nothing of her last modeling job before returning to her normal life she gets more than she bargains for. Having a crazy paramilitary leader after wasn't was she wanted now he has an obsession with her and not letting her leave Colombia. Nothing else to do she calls her childhood best friend Keely who now works with her husband Ren in

I raved over the first book in this series, (Eye of The Storm) and was anxious to see if Ms. Michaels could produce another fantastic book.

WELL... SHE DID!!!!!

Cold Day in Hell is another rip roaring, exciting story with a heroine that is no shrinking violet and action, lots of action throughout. Cassie is a supermodel, raised by a marine father and childhood friends of Keely Walsh-Maddox and her 5 brothers. She is not one of those pampered ladies that are absolutely helpless and can't take care

This was in my opinion way better than Eye of the Storm. The chemistry between Risto and Callie was so hot.

Callie is a childhood friend of Keely's and if you read my review of Eye of the Storm I have mixed feelings about Keely. Callie has been trained and can use guns very well, but she is not necessarily better than any of the other characters who have been trained and she very much prefers to be an analyst as she isn't emotionally cut out for field work.

This is book 2 of Monette Michaels' SSI series and i love it!!! I've said it before and I'll say it again, Monette's Eye of the Storm (book 1 of SSI series) is my favorite go to book. Ever! Cold Day in Hell is another breathtaking and spellbinding book. Full of action, suspense and romance, you will not want for more. . . Except the next book in the series. Go read this now. It's a must read!

(X + Danger + Alpha Y= !)

First of all, let me say I’m a Monette Michaels fan. I love her other SSI book, and her sci-fi novel “Prime Obsession” is A+. However, “Cold Day In Hell” is a straight formula suspense novel.

It’s a re-hash of the Cindy Gerrard Novel “xxx”. (X+ Dgr + AY= !), or take one super model (X), add Danger, plus an Alpha Man, and you get a combustible ‘danger danger let’s fight the bad guys novel’. But if you expect this going in, you’ll won’t be disappointed.

3.5 stars

Well, Monette Michaels finally did it right. I'm thinking she may have gotten a lot of flak for her previous heroine, Keely, and decided to remedy this situation with our present heroine, Callie.

Short synopsis: Our heroine (frank, earnest supermodel) Callie, gets stalked by creepy Columbian paramilitary leader. Heroine asks for help from old friend Keeley, who in touch contacts SSI to get involved - which brings our hero, Risto, in on the scene. Risto 'saves the day' by escaping with he

The second book in this series begins with Callie getting the unwanted attention of a really bad man named Cruz who has threatened to harm her brothers if she doesn't go "be his woman" willingly. Callie needs to keep her brothers safe, so she calls her friend Keely for help since her husband is Ren, the owner of Security Specialists International. They send out Risto Smith to help get Callie home safely. When these two meet it's an instant attraction... Not

Another kick ass heroine.. Calista Meyers is a supermodel who was tricked into doing a fashion shoot in Columbia. What it really was a way to get her into the country where a bad paramilitary leader planned to kidnap her and keep her as his woman. After threatening her twin brothers if she attempts to leave the country she calls her childhood friend Keely Walsh and SSI for an extraction out of the country.

SSI sends Risto Smith to rescue Callie. Risto has never met anyone like Calista before. Sh

2.5 stars.

I liked the romance between Calista and Risto at the beginning of the story. They had an interesting adventure in a few different countries together that brought them closer. Their dynamic was overall complimentary towards one another. I enjoyed Calista as a character because she was a strong woman that knew her limits in life. I think her personality was the prominent in this book and the previous book. I think Ms. Micheals developed her character well compared to the other characters

The five star rating I've given this book is based purely on my enjoyment when reading it and not how well written it was, how believable the characters were, or anything like that. I loved this book even more than the first in the series. For me it had everything I want in a book. Action, suspense, and romance with an over protective, very possessive H who had and wanted to take care of the h. The sex scenes were great to. If you are the type of reader who likes characters that are realistic y

A perfect mix of hot and sweet mixed with fast paced action.

If there is one thing I love it is a strong and sexy woman who can keep an equally strong and sexy man on his toes. Callie is a fantastic heroine with a smart mouth and a steady trigger finger. Risto is a dominant male hero with a protective streak a mile wide. The two of them together is pure magic. This is the second in this series and I am totally hooked. I can't wait to read the next one!

I thought the interplay of the special ops and the model was interesting and fun. Well written. And I liked this one better than the first book in the series. Which means the next one should be awesome!

BTW it has a very good shoot-em-up scene near the end, luscious locales, and hunky men. Ooh did I mention hunky men? :)

This second book in the series, is another fab read. Have now read this story maybe 3 times, and each time I love it more. It is packed full of action, pretty much from the start and both main characters Callie and Risto are really likable, especially Callie whose transition from world renowned model to capable soldier is very believable and so is the relationship that develops between them.

Risto Smith is my all time favorite alpha hero. I enjoyed the story line and loved the way it moved along. This author has a way of grabbing you and pulling into the story from the first page.
