Ambushed was good! I wanted more character development, more pages! Nice and quick for those times when you NEED to read, but don't have a lot of time! ...more
A Short Taste Of Action And Romance.

I have read the previous books in this series and enjoyed them, I did enjoy this story but wanted it to be longer. I felt as though I had come in to a film at the final 20minutes; it was good, had a great pace and the writing style was easy to read but it was over before it even started! Lol!

24 pages, so obviously there is no character development. One situation and then bam, they’re in bed and then they live HEA.

If the author has taken the time to slow down the scenes and develop the characters better I believe it would have been deserving of at least three stars. Unfortunately the entire, and very brief piece here is way too fast paced, choppy, and the ending didn't work well for me at all. My suggestion, go back in and rewrite each paragraph or two and make it more fulfilling. Then send it my way because it's decent writing and the author certainly has a creative mind. ...more

~!~ Extremely short, but extremely good ~!~

This book is extremely: 1) short, 2) well written, 3) engaging. It really grabbed my attention right away. Be warned however, it's a teaser to get you interested in the series. Also, it doesn't end on a cliffhanger so much as an "okay for now ending", but you will really want to know what happens next.

As a lead agent for Decorah Security, it was Jordan Stone's responsibility to protect Elizabeth Bannerman not crave her body or her affections. He needed to keep her alive to testify against a terrorist. In this short story, the conflict took off and they had to fight for their lives. Loved the continuous action and the building tension by a master storyteller. ...more

This was a very short fast-paced read. The part I enjoyed the most was the chase and run from the terrorist. The sex scene was so-so. I would like to have gotten to know more about the characters. All and all, it was okay for me.

Ambushed is a quick read in Rebecca York's Decorah Securty Agency series. I would have enjoyed learning a bit more about the H/H, but the action was intense and drove the story. ...more

This was a very quick read - so quick that I'm not entirely sure I would even call it a novella. I suppose one chapter is a novella, but his was an awfully quick chapter. Plot (what can be put into one chapter) was good. ...more

Ms. York writes an exceptionally good series about a Security company that hires people with special insights or abilities. This book four and I would recommend starting with book one so you have background.

Wow. I sure hope there is a full length novel that precedes this novella.

It was so short. It had so much potential but it was like one paragraph.

This was very short. Story had potential but was a little novella. I don't think I've read anything else in this series. I may have to go give one a try. :) ...more

Ok story with lots of action just not enough length for any real character development or depth.

Lots of Action

This story can be classified as realistic fiction. It is a fast read because of all the action. The characters are well developed for a short story.
