The duo is on location in Virginia Beach to film Sienna's new TV series, along with costar Reed Forrester—the man with whom the world thinks Sienna is in love. Wrong.

Sienna's heart actually belongs to her fiance, Craig, a Navy Seal with the Saint Squad. Craig must fly under the radar if he is to keep Sienna safe from this world of terrorists and toxic bombs. And Reed has no problem pretending to date his old friend Sienna simply because it means he can spend time learning more about Jane. Making a TV series is grueling work but not nearly as difficult as the treacherous adventure that is about to begin with a simple photo taken in the wrong place at the wrong time—an image worth killing for.

When Craig returns to the United States to spend time with Sienna, he's not expecting to spend that time protecting her and Jane. Frightening incidents targeting the two women rapidly escalate, and as Craig and his Saint Squad investigate a tangled conspiracy, they find themselves tracking, here at home, the terrorists they have searched for across the globe. But can they shut the terrorists down in time to save Jane, Reed, and Sienna?(less)

One thing that I love about Traci Hunter Abramson's books is that they are full of suspense and crazy situations, yet the main characters are mostly "normal" people. I was so excited to get my hands on another Saint Squad novel.

This book has Craig and Sienna (from a previous book) as two of the main characters, but there are also new characters introduced. I loved the way the characters all came together in this race against time. Sienna is an actress, but she is very down-to-earth. Her

Seal Team 8 is back!! I haven't read the last couple of Saint Squad books, so I was thrilled to get approval to read and review Traci's latest book. When I got the approval email I was so excited I immediately messaged a friend who also loves Traci Abramson because I HAD to tell someone.

This book is about Sienna (Craig’s fiancée) and her assistant Jane. Sienna and Craig's story is in the previous book Spotlight, which I haven't read yet, but I wasn't lost at all while reading this one. Sienna,

Yay! for another book with the Saint Squad! I love this military based series that gives me light suspense and a bit of romance as well. What I really love about this series is that it's a group of friends and they are in every book, sometimes in the spotlight, sometimes in the background but always there. It gives the series such a feeling of continuity and family. I love it.

This book actually has two characters from the last book, Craig and Sienna, prominently in this book as well. Reed is a

The Saint Squad is back! I haven't read all of the books in the series, but I seriously need to. I love this group of characters. They are a Navy Seal team and the comradery and value they place on each other is amazing. I really enjoy Traci Hunter Abramson's writing style, attention to detail, and wonderful characters.

This book contains terrorists that are causing havoc. They have targeted one of the Saint Squad's fiancee and her friends. The stakes are high and the squad doesn't back down.

I saw this book and thought I would give it a try even though it is part of a series sometimes you can pick up at book 1 as well as book 10 and not get lost. This book however readers might more to read the books in this series first.

The series is a light suspense and romance that readers can enjoy while sitting around the pool or curled up hiding from the heat of the day. The book is about military friends who come together in times of need. The story romance, suspense all written within a

Traci Hunter Abramson has done it again. I love her books, especially books with the Saint Squad. There is just something comforting about them. They are smart and determined, and all-around great characters. Tripwire is an exciting rush. I love how the author writes her books. The change in points of view is fantastic and it really helps you get into the head of the bad guys and the good guys. The action is heart pounding and I couldn't turn the pages fast enough! Sienna, Craig, Reed and Jane ...more

Oh. My. Goodness! I loved this book! I loved the characters, the plot, the way the book pulled me in from the very beginning! The way Traci Hunter Abramson writes these books is just phenomenal, she does such a great job!

I loved that this book has so many main characters. You get to see what’s going on from so many different points of view, even from the point of view of the bad guys, and that just makes the whole thing easier to understand and even more mysterious than it would be.

I haven't read any other books in this series and, in the beginning, there were a lot of characters to keep track of.
It got easier and I was able to get engrossed in it after that.
There's romance, action, suspense, and it keeps moving pretty fast.

I received a copy from the publisher via NetGalley and this is my honest opinion.
This romantic suspense kept me on the edge of my seat. The Saint Squad is a group of religious young Navy SEALs who work together to thwart terrorism around the world. Craig, a member of the squad is engaged secretly to marry Hollywood star Sienna later in the year. They are keeping their engagement secret so his name is not in the press since he works undercover. Sienna’s assistant, Jane, is falling for Reed, her costar, but he is staging a relationship with Sienna to throw the press off her ...more

Tripwire is an entertaining story, with a suspenseful beginning and ending, and clean romance in between. I haven't read all of the books in Abramson's Saint Squad series, but enough of them to be familiar with the characters. If you enjoy this series, I think you'll like this latest addition.

I was intrigued by the suspenseful situation Jane and Sienna found themselves in at the beginning of Tripwire. As the story moved on, the focus shifted to the budding romance between Reed and Jane. The pace

Abramson has done it again! The Saint Sqaud returns for another romance full of heart-pounding and action-packed moments! When Jane and Sienna accidentally take a picture with known terrorists in the background they quickly put a target on their backs, unbenownst to them! While Jane and Sienna do their best to figure out who is after them and why, a little help from Craig, Sienna's fiance and the Saint Squad is called in.

Almost gave this one a two star - the overly sappy dialogue was so hard to get through! Like, she cooked the guy dinner & it was the greatest thing anyone had ever done for him?? It wasn't even her idea. Each kiss & hug was wrought with mushy over-sentiment. Outside of that I did want to find out what happened and endured to the end of the book.

I just can't read enough about the Saint Squad members. Loved Reed and Jane's story and I realized I'd missed Craig's so I had to backtrack again. <3

Three noobs just starting BUDS were introduced with a hint that there could be a second Saint Squad created. You won't hear me crying!

I do love the Saint Squad! This was another good installment in the series. It got a little sappy in parts but sappy is not all bad. I did like the characters and enjoyed the read.
Loved the continued story of the saint squad! They work together to find and detour a terrorist attack and kidnapping of their loved ones!

A little predictable, but enjoyable nevertheless.

Another Saint Squad suspense/romance by Traci Hunter Abramson--what's not to love? There's a helpful chart at the beginning of the book that tells which Saint Squad books are related to which characters in this group of Navy Seals and their wives/sweethearts. This book focuses on rising star Sienna Blake, previously of Spotlight, her fiance and Navy Seal Craig Simmons, her co-star Reed Forrester (an old friend with whom Sienna is pretending to have a relationship to keep media attention away ...more

It was wonderful to be able to read another book from one of my favorite series: The Saint Squad. These books are about a group of LDS Navy Seals and the adventures they encounter on the job and the women in their lives.

Tripwire is a little different from some of the other Saint Squad books. This novel doesn't fully center on just a Saint Squad member, this time Craig, but on his soon to be wife actress Sienna, and her friends Jane and Reed. Many of the squad do appear in this book, but a lot

Suspense, with clean romance; Series, but stand alone read; LDS characters/backstory
While this is part of a series, this can be read as a stand alone read. Jane and Read, Sienna and Craig, plus other members of the Saint Squad are in the throes of finding out who has it in for Sienna and Jane. While incidents occur, a terrorist group is in the US. The Terrorist groups plans, connected to an incident with the Saint Squad abroad, is the background behind actors Sienna and Reed, and Assistant

Okay, I finally finished this series, and need to write about why I enjoyed them so much. I was impressed with how well Abramson combined the technical details of CIA spy thrillers and clean wholesome romance too - I loved that! Additionally, it is all from an unexpected but welcome LDS angle, (even usually surprisingly natural)! I relished that the stories were so interrelated, with characters in each story overlapping with those in the other ones. Sometimes there were predictabilities and a ...more

Really sad - Is this the last book in the series or will there be more??? Who would have thought taking a picture at the airport before moving to Virginia Beach would be a deadly experience? For Sienna Blake and her assistant Jane, that's exactly what happens. They are being targeted by terrorists, unbeknownst to them and wondering what in the world they did to have these problems. But thank goodness Sienna's fiance, Craig, a Navy SEAL, and his team would come to their rescue. Sienna and her ...more

What can I say it’s Traci and the Saint Squad! Happily ever after.

I love the interactions of her characters. I love how the books feed off each other and builds more dimensions of each of the characters. While adding in new characters that build the eternity of these couples and their lives. The one thing I can see is starting to happen is all the characters seem to perfect. They are good at everything. But that doesn’t stop me from loving the books Traci writes. I think she is amazing and has a

This is #10 in the Saint Squad series. Each one focuses on a different member of the US Navy's Seal Squad of LDS members. I really like the way Abramson intertwines her characters in this series. It seems that each member of the squad has a wife or girlfriend who is the sister, sister-in-law or good friend of another member. Even the parents of various wives or girlfriends appear in more than one novel. By the time the reader gets to #10, it is hard to remember everything you've read about each ...more

A clean suspense/romance. I haven’t read all the books in the series but I like the characters, and you can enjoy the stories without the other books. I felt like the book dragged down in the middle and was paced too slowly when we were waiting for the suspense to work its way through. And dare I say it? Yes, I do. Enough with the kissing. All chaste, but please make it stop. Maybe I noticed it more because I listened to the audio? But I just kept wanting more of the action and interaction ...more

Traci Hunter Abramson is great. Her books always have lots of action and then a sweet side that blends to make an incredible story. Terrorists, friends that have no idea why they are being targeted, and some romance mixed in. I love the characters and I think it's cool that she created the "Saint Squad". The writing keeps me turning page after page, even after I should be asleep. The story seem plausible (I'm sure it helps that she is familiar with the CIA). The other plus is that the her ...more

Another fantastic suspense and drama filled story involving the Saint Squad characters from previous books. Although the characters from previous books are in this story, it can be read as a stand alone and mostly involve Jane, Sienna, Craig and Reed.

I loved the fast paced action, light romance between characters, and the comradery of the squad. They work well together, trust each other, and do amazingly dangerous missions together.

Loved this book-highly recommend!

SOOOOO GOOOOD! I'll admit it was a slow start, but after the first 100 pages it pulled me in and before I knew it I had finished the book. The poor lady who was sitting next to me on the flight while I was reading startled me so bad at one point (let's just say at one point of the book a bomb is triggered and I didn't know if it was going to explode or not, so naturally, I was as tense as a coiled spring!)

Amazing book, you've done it again Abramson!
The Saint Squad is probably one of my favorite series...great romance, bits of interesting action, Navy SEALS, what more could you want? Oh yeah...A series that you know is not going to have swearing or graphic sex. Love it!

Abramson is a great story teller, and I love that her books have overlap between the characters. I hope there are more SEALS that need a love interest...don't stop these books from coming!

I love the books in the Saint Squad series! They all have a perfect blend of romance and action. I especially enjoyed this one. The plot was fast paced. The characters were well developed and likable. I love the beach setting and the Saint Squad (Seal Team) elements. It REALLY helps if you read these books in order because the characters carry over from one book to the next!!
Hollie Robb
The initial story was good. There was a couple of characters that I wanted to start slapping silly, but I find those type of characters a lot in books lately.

Did I find it exciting? It had it moments, at one point I started to wish that Abramson, would kill off the whole lot, but where would that take the book?
