Please ignore the tattoo (the cover is not apt). That's definitely a no-go for a man working undercover in the Afghan mountains.

…She'd thought about this many times over the past few days, and with all his rough edges and having been undercover in austere conditions for so long, she'd expected a raging hunger from him. The care and consideration in his touch shook her to her core, but it was also making her crazy. She wanted to see that need and passion unle

I am so glad that Ms Cross decided to write this story as I really felt it needed to be told and I needed to read it!....In usual KC style it flowed really well and told an exciting story and kept me engaged from start to finish.

Action packed, smooth storyline, wrapped up with a "delicious" apha hero. What more can you ask for? This one's a winner.

I am such a huge fan of this author and this series. These books are freaking awesome, and I always love how the female lead is such a strong, kick ass character.... The men of course are always totally swoon worthy it...

Cant wait for the Honor and Liam next....:)

Kaylea Cross knocks it out of the park again. I seriously want to take up permanent residence in her brain-- I love all the more recent stuff she's written (still working my way through her earlier work. Didn't love the original version of book #1, but it wasn't bad). The Bagram Special Ops series is equal parts RS and military fiction and all-around legend. I've loved every hero/heroine pairing and every character so far-- even the villains. There is a strong underlying thread that connects all ...more

First I would say that this was a great book, with a similar style to Cindy Gerard's & Maya Banks' series. This one had more of a stand alone type feel, with less feeling & connection to the other characters in the previous books, despite their brief presence in this story in comparison to the other authors.

Wade runs into the hospital to talk to a man he rescued, to be stopped by Erin, a nurse protecting her patient. Later he is leaving the country because his cover was blown & ends

Although this book had action I focused on the romance as I do in all other books. Erin is a firecracker, "she raised an eyebrow in mock insult. "What's that supposed to mean?

Kaylea Cross, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. *Starts counting on fingers….*

Oh anyhoo, adding up all of the reasons why I love Kaylea Cross would take quite awhile. I stumbled upon Ms. Cross 2 years ago and I have read everything she has written…some of it…well…. a lot of it, I’ve read SEVERAL times. She gets the mix of romance, suspense, kick ass, irresistible military men just right. Whenever she announces a new book, I am always ECSTATIC. You know why? Because I know it will be a k

Danger Close was not my favourite in this series. Though it was still a decent read.

I liked the action and I like Wade but I did not really like Erin. She was a bit too sappy and character- less for me. And I really didn't FEEL the connection between the two except for the fact that she really wanted to get it on with him because he was hot and a decent guy. I wanted more from her and I think the insta lust worked against her. I have to say I enjoy a book more when there is some sort of angst be

Erin is working as an army nurse in Afghanistan when she, on her way home for two weeks off, gets drawn into an attack on her co-passenger.
Wades spent the last years deep undercover, as second in command to Rahim, one of the US most wanted terrorist. He blew his cover when lives were at stake, but now Rahim is gunning for him.
Military action, suspense and smutty fluff in a realistic setting, youll feel the dust in your throat, promise. Great read and a series I need to read from start asap.

4 Slightly Tame Stars!

So, this one wasn't filled with quite as much adrenaline pumping action as the books that came before it but it was still fast paced and had you on the edge of your seat.

The book began in Bagram, which I really love, one of the main things I have loved about this series is the fact that the stories all unravel in a war zone. However, it quickly returned stateside and remained there for the whole book. Which meant that while suspenseful that underlying feeling of danger you
Another great book. I'm not 100% sold on these two falling in love in a week. Maybe because it has been 4 years since Wade has around a woman socially much less intimately. But it could happen.

4 Solid Stars! Kaylea Cross writes her mystery suspense/romance books with the best military themes! I really enjoyed this book in the series, because as most of Kaylea's heroines- are not whimpy and whiny, but Erin Kelly was tough on her own right. She is a military nurse stationed overseas healing troops in the military war zone. She is badass to me!

During her time of deployment she is anxious to go home on leave and ends up saddled with the same mysterious man who barged into the hospital a
Another great story!
It's official Kaylea Cross can write amazing stories and when I think I read a great book the next one is as great and complex as the first.

Erin was a nurse in the military who was at the wrong place and wrong time (with Wade in the same car) on her way to a well deserved vacation away from the military base. After 3 years undercover Wade had to save the Secretary of Defense and 2 American soldiers. With his cover exposed he had Rahim and his man looking for him for revenge.

I'm glad that we got more with Wade with this book as I was intrigued with his role in the last book. I can't imagine doing a job like his and being so out of touch with people for that long.

I really liked the instant connection that Wade had with Erin, loved it even more that when things could have moved along he was the one to stop things and think them through. I was a bit surprised to learn the history of the bad guy, but was glad that Wade was able to defeat him in the end.

I liked that Erin

Kayla you have done it again. I love all of your stuff but this one to me is so unique and special. The suspense was great. The way Erin was so strong and not only with everything going on but she really told him her "needs". It made me laugh. I absolutely loved the ending. It brought tears to my eyes with the airport scene. I can hardly wait for the next book. Keep the love coming.

This was the best one yet in the Bagram Special Ops series. I absolutely loved Wade Sandberg, and Erin Kelly was the first heroine in this series that I liked consistently from beginning to end. She was a great heroine, she was strong, and she had her head on straight. No wishy-washy, do I like him, should I like him nonsense going on in her head. She was awesome. Lots of exciting, edge-of-your-seat action. And just the right mix of romance and passion. I highly recommend both this book and this ...more

What would you do if the person that you love is in danger? What if you haven’t told her how you feel? What if you can’t get to her in time to save her life?

Wow, I could not believe the amount of action and suspense that this story had. I know that I didn’t want to put this book down at all. It captivated my attention from the very beginning. I know that I should read the first two books in this series and I know I will real soon. This story can be read as a stand alone but I think it’s best to

This is one read that has one heck of a punch you can feel the emotion as the author takes you through the read which could be from today’s headlines. With over 100 5 and 4 star reviews is it any wonder that this author is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author with edge-of-your-seat military romantic suspense. The book starts out a little slow but it heats up fast with an action pack read as you have Lt. Erin Kelly at the wrong place at the wrong time and on the run for her life. She ...more

Kaylea Cross is brilliant at what she does. She researches the bejesus out of her topics, creates very individual characters, knows how to develop both danger and a relationship, and doesn’t have her hero and heroine stopping to do idiotic romantic things at the most implausible times (unlike too many authors in this genre).

Danger Close would be much better off read as it is intended to be: as a later instalment in an ongoing storyline. This is the fourth book in the Ba
I'm not very good at writing reviews, but I try. I really hope this review entices you to read Danger Close and the other books in the Bagram Special Ops series. They are powerful, thought-provoking, heartfelt, engaging reads. The only other author who makes me feel this way about her books is Pamela Clare. So hurry up and start reading, you'll thank me later.

Kaylea Cross has outdone herself again. I loved EVERYTHING about Danger Close and don't have a single negative thing to say about it. What
I have issues with some of Kaylea Cross' books (or I'm confusing her with someone else entirely - in which case I apologise) but the Bagram Special Ops books are not them.

This is the fourth book in the series (apparently I've overlooked the third so I will go back and read it, even though I know what happened). The stories centre on a group of women stationed at Bagram.

“Her body didn’t give a damn that he was all wrong for her, it wanted him anyway. Badly. Either oblivious of or not wanting to encourage the attraction between them, Wade looked down at his mug as though he wasn’t comfortable holding her gaze at such close range, and took a sip. As he swallowed, one side of his mouth curved up and he let out an appreciative groan that seemed to reverberate right through her, heating her blood. Startled, she drank in the almost dreamy expression on his angular face and imagined that same look right after he’d enjoyed an intensely satisfying orgasm. Erin couldn’t be positive, but if his reaction to a simple cup of coffee made him groan like that, she was pretty sure it had been a while since he’d had one of those, too. And man, the idea of being the one to end his dry spell was way too freaking hot for her own good.” 0 likes
“Truth was, he was sitting on the floor only partly because he was more used to that, but more because it gave him an excuse not to have to sit close to her. If anything he was more attracted to her with every hour that passed, rather than leveling off. He’d been telling himself he was hot for her simply because it was a natural reaction for a man who’d been without a woman for four years to want one as beautiful as her, especially when they were staying alone in a house together. But if he was honest it was way more than physical attraction. Erin was kind and brave and sweet. She made him simultaneously want to gather her up in his arms to protect her and pin her to the nearest flat surface and kiss her until she melted and wrapped around him.” 0 likes
