A quote (from ARC):
“He wasn’t the type to be insecure about his scars - he was too practical for that (…)” – loc. 898.
“Caught in the Current” is a riveting story with such wonderful characters! I found it so refreshing to read a wounded war veteran that wears his scars with ease (yet not flippantly).
Jay is a guarded man, but so endearingly ready to commit and give his heart, that I w

I voluntarily read and reviewed an copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Thanks to the author

It's a clean romance. It's more suspense than romance though.
I liked this book a lot. I liked author's style, plot and both MCs and SCs.
Both MCs had some strong buggage: but at least the H had always his caring family, poor heroine did have shitty parents. She made herself strong, sufficient and efficient person. With no heart and no feelings for herself.

I liked how blossomed relationsh

Read and loved the first book in the series, and really got into this one fast to. I took a sneak peek at the next book, and oh I cannot wait to read it.
Both Jay and Alex’s characters were so great, I really cared for both of them, and Jay’s family gave the book that warm heartfelt family feeling.
My recommendation is don’t miss this series.

I couldn’t put this book down.

Retired Marine, Jason Hall, just found out his nephew, Luke, has been kidnapped by his unstable father who was recently released from prison. Jay needs to find Luke as quickly as possible before he ends up in danger. Alexandra “Alex” Macintyre, Jay’s friend who is a private investigator, immediately jumps into action to help find Luke.

Because of a tragedy that happened to Alex when she was younger, she has dedicated her life to helping reunite people with missing l

Two sentences into the description I knew I would be reading this book. There was so much potential. Unfortunately, the description was the best part.

This wasn't the book for me, it pushed a whole bunch of my buttons and I struggled to understand the rational behind some of the inclusions in the story. The story itself was good but I feel it was wrapped up and packaged poorly. Let me explain.

Caught in the Current is the second offering in the Cape Cod Shore series. In it, Jason Hall, retired Marine, seeks out private investigator, Alexandra Macintyre, in the search for his kidnapped nephew. Jason and Alexandra have a short history and the chemistry between explodes as they race against time to find the nephew.
They do not know is what they have together is strong enough to be more than a short thing again. Alexandra has a past that haunts her of an abducted sister and Alexandra’s lif

The author takes us back to Cape Cod and this time the story belongs to Retired Marine Jason/Jay Hall, who also helps returning soldiers adjust to life as a civilian, and Alex MacIntyre, a P.I. whom he met a while back and to whom he was immediately attracted.
When Jay’s nephew is abducted by his criminal biological father, Jay asks Alex for help.
Alex ,a successful PI, dedicates most of her time in helping families whose children are abducted. Few know the reason for this. As a matter of fact, f

This was just an ok read for me which was too bad because I thought there was a great story in there just waiting to come together and burst free. Instead it felt rushed to me. That said the core of the story is solid. Jay and Alex are both strong dedicated characters and their hunt for Luke and the urgency they are working under could be felt. In the end my biggest complaint is that there just needed to be more of this story. Still I would recommend.

I voluntarily read a advanced reader's copy of this book for a honest opinion.

Caught in the Current by Charlee James, book two in The Cape Cod Shores series, a great addition to the series. Likable characters and a great plot. Looking forward to reading more in this series and more by the author.

Scars are intimately, individual things, and how a person bears those scars is as unique as they themselves are. The reality is that the scars that can be seen and dealt with, one way or another, are just as real as those scars that lay hidden beneath the skin where the memory dwells, lingers and cannot let go. Jason and Alex both bear scars from their pasts, in the long run Jay’s may be more easily dealt with for Alex’s scars lie deep in her childhood and continued

Caught in the Current is book two in the Cape Cod Shore series by Charlee James. Each book so far has been self-contained with very little overlaying of the stories, so you can completely enjoy this book without having read the first book. In fact, it is very different from the first books as far as story line goes except that there are children in both, but even that is very different.

Much of this story takes place on the road but it does originate at the Cape Code Shores location. It is reali

Second in the Cape Cod Shore series, Caught in the Current is a contemporary romantic suspense. The story sees private investigator Alex partnering with former marine Jay in a road trip to rescue Jay’s nephew, who has been kidnapped by his biological father.
Both Alex and Jay have baggage aplenty. She’s been traumatised by the kidnapping of her little sister when they were young children and the appalling way her family has treated her since then. He’s reluctant to enter into a relationship after

Loved this book of finding love when you least expect, even though they did share a scorching kiss once before. When retired marine, Jason's nephew goes missing he knows the one person who can help him, PI Alex. The two unite fronts and go on a road trip to find Luke. They both have pasts that have held them off from perusing romantic forevers until now.

This was a fast paced book that I could not put down. Loved finding out the back history on Alex , it just made my heart hurt. The grief that

When Jason's nephew is missing he knows exactly who can help and by means the police can't imploy. Alex is the sexy woman with a backbone of steel he had a hot and heavy make out session with. She runs her open PI firm and does pro bono work when it comes to missing children. The reasons behind that aren't known to many but soon Alex allows her walls down and Jason in her inner circle.

Jason has a big supportive family and he will bring his nephew home. He also knows Alex doesn't have that famil

I pray this Author chooses to do more research rapidly, but this is terribly weak writing.
The amount of grammatical errors is unbelievable,
With pronouns used for him when speaking about the Female Alex.
The flow of the story and explaining the characters is confusing, weak, sometimes illogical.
The Marine Jay, has worry thoughts about his missing nephew, Luke, that don't fit the timeline of the boy missing already for longer than 3 days; Also, the 'WORRY' thoughts are NOT what a marine would t

My first book from Charlee James, but I’ll be back for more. While the search for Luke, Jason’s nephew, had a quick turn around time, I thought the pacing of both the story and Jason’s relationship with Alex was right on target. Having Alex be the wary one and Jason ready to go all in with her was an interesting change of pace...when it’s usually the male in the couple who is commitment-shy.
MY one caveat would be to categorize this book more as a contemporary with suspense overtones, rather tha

Oh My word author Charlee James sure knows how to pen a story that gets my attention and has me searching for answers as the story moved on. If you read the first book in this series In with the Tide you will recognize Alex and Jay this is an expansion of their story and more. J

When Alex agreed to help Jay find his kidnapped nephew she was happy to see Jay again but she couldn’t enjoy him as she felt she didn’t deserve it.
Jay knew Alex was the best for the job and she was so easy to get along with but they can’t get sidetracked Jay’s nephew is possibly injured.
This story has a bit of danger and some romance but it is really about how you feel about yourself and it was fun to read.

I really enjoyed this book as the storyline is one that I have not read in all of the 100's of books that I have read. It was a missing person and two people are tracking him down states away. Then all of the little things start to happen. The cover fits the story just perfect. Charlee really hit this one over the fence for a home run! ...more

Broken hearts can be mended

Alex and Jay are both in need of TLC, she from the blame her family poured on her since she was 8 years old and he from the blame he poured on himself through an event during war.

Sweet romance

A sweet and thoughtful romance with compelling characters and an engaging premise. Also about navigating past trauma to find both love and peace.
I’m so glad I stumbled on this series. This book was terrific as was book 1. I’m so excited to be able to now start book 3. Charlee has created some wonderful characters, all with some flaws that they do a good job working on.

4.5 Star Review Posted at

When Jason ‘Jay’ Hall’s nephew is kidnapped, he’ll do anything to get the child back. Hiring PI Alexandra ‘Alex’ MacIntyre is the best decision he’s made, especially when she’s so driven to help. But when Jay discovers how much guilt she holds inside herself over a tragedy in her past, will he be able to help her heal or are her wounds too deep to move past in order to achieve their happy ever after?
