If you haven't read this series yet then I can categorically say it's just as wild and exciting as the authors other works but with a subtle twist. No aliens or space heroes but plenty of alpha males and this time it's the turn of loner Smith to rescue the always curious and cute Kinsey. Now Kinsey is no fool nor is she a shrinking violet but things happen in this book that keep everyone on their toes so settle in and enjoy the adventures that team 52 go on this time !

‘Mission: Her Security’ is the third book into Anna Hackett’s spin-off of the Treasure-Hunter Security stories, featuring primarily a rather hapless Kinsey Beck whose multiple kidnappings and threats of death finally push Smith Creed (determined to keep her at arm’s length) into taking the plunge past friendship. But as with any Hackett story, there’s also a bigger threat looming large that Team 52 rushes to nullify—a threat that continues to be a pain in the arse for everyone involved until the ...more

Kinsie really likes the cool and aloof Creed Smith, but the former Spec Ops soldier keeps everyone at arms’ length. Smith hides his attraction to Kinsie...she’s too cute and caring for an old soldier like him. However when a terrorist group abducts Kinsie, Smith realizes how much he cares, and will do whatever it takes to bring her home to him.

These ‘scarred soldier hero falls for bright and sweet heroine’ have been done before, and done much better than here. This version is as bland a

3.5 stars.

Lots of action with a sweet but gutsy heroine and a stoic commitment-phobic hero. A nice read but probably won't be very memorable.

Loved it but damn the amount of times Kinsey got kidnapped was a bit outrageous after awhile.

One more great story to this series.
I do love how Mrs Anna Hackett is able to craft opposites attract couples like here with sweet sunshine Kinsey and lonesome surly Smith.
Kinsey is the kind of heroine I do prefer, she is no military nor army woman but she is a fighter in her own way. She never gives up, and fights to her last hope’s drop.
Smith was wounded by a previous love story, since he prefers to stay safe from this heartbreaking feeling, why instead of acting on his attraction to Kinsey, h

What I liked:
Clear action. Sympathetic characters. Hot love scenes. Excellent pacing.

What I didn't like:
Well, the genre wasn't for me. The military details (except the cool rubber-attracted gadget) weren't my jam.
Kinsey is in distress, needing to be saved (though she does manage to save herself to some degree), for large portions of the book . Smith seems nice enough, but I barely remember anything about him after reading.

I received a review copy.

Series: Team 52 #3
Rating: 4 stars - really enjoyable

Smith Creed has been attracted to Team 52's logistics manager from the moment he saw her but he's been burned before and he doesn't want to risk his heart again. When Kinsey Beck is kidnapped, Smith will do everything in his power to get her back and keep her safe. But a dangerous group has targeted Kinsey in the hopes of getting their hands on an ancient artifact in Team 52's keeping and they'll stop at nothing to get their hands on it.

Kinsey Beck has been kidnapped by a terrorist group wanting one of the artifacts housed in Area 52’s warehouse. While scared, she is determined to get away and alert Team 52 of the group. Smith Creed is determined to find sweet and beautiful Kinsey. Rescuing Kinsey uncovers a plot to destroy the world and the team is running out of time to stop them.

This book picks up right where the previous book ended, with Kinsey being kidnapped. Kinsey knows she will be rescued but she won’t just wait aroun
Aaaaand I think I am done with this series.

I would really like to know Blair's story which is next, but then again...

It is not that I do not like these books. They are just getting too plain, repetitive and predictable - girl gets in trouble, guy saves her, then protects her while battling his feeling because of his "past", then some major sci-fi action, some hot scenes, then the girl almost dies, the guy has an "oh, shi*, I love her" moment and turns into a love-dovey "I'll do anything for you

I’ve always said that this series reminded me of Stargate. I had to laugh out loud when they headed to Denver, the home of the Cheyenne Mountain Base. There may not be a Stargate in the mountain, but as many artifacts as Team 52 has turned up so far, you never know!

This story begins when Team 52’s logistics expert, Kinsey Beck, is kidnapped from their in-town “Bunker” in Las Vegas. Her kidnapping sets off several chain reactions, reactions of all different

Big, bad, STOIC Smith Creed is the next up on the team to find his special someone. I do enjoy when the closed off ones (*slowly*) figure out the thing they need most in the world is right under their nose.

In this case, the thing Smith needs is sunny, sweet Kinsey. She's had a pretty craptastic life and yet she still manages to find the bright side of things. She's genuinely kind and she doesn't let life knock her down for long no matter how hard it tries. Which is a *bit* of a difference from S

Kinsey and Smith

This KU Library selection and great new whirlwind addition to the Team 52 series can easily standalone. It features Kinsey Beck, the team's 'Girl Friday' and all around ray of sunshine. As the story begins, Kinsey has been kidnapped from "The Bunker", the team's command center, after being duped into unlocking the doors for a delivery. Security tapes don't show enough to give the team a clue as to who took her and the resident techie is scrambling to get any information at all. M

Kinsey is by the far the unluckiest woman on the planet! And that's saying something cos I'm up there! Kinsey may be the indispensable cog that holds the team together, gets them what they need, when they need it but she can't seem to land the one thing she wants - Smith!

Smith is a rough and tough kind of guy. He was burnt before and has no intention of letting anyone tromp over his heart again. He may have a bionic prosthetic but the guy could do with a bionic heart, for such a big guy he reall

MISSION: HER SECURITY Is An electrifying story. I was drawn in and eager to learn what happened next. There was enough action, danger, dynamic vivid scene descriptions, humor, sizzling passionate romance and a most intriguing conclusion to keep me entertained.

Mission: Her Security (Team 52 #3) picks up with the storyline started at the end of Mission: Her Rescue when Kinsey was kidnapped from the Bunker. The villains holding Kinsey want an ancient artifact from the Team's vast storage. Smith Creed married his high school girlfriend and now, years later, is bitter and refuses to be involved with any woman past a one night stand. Kinsey made a pass at Smith after a few drinks at a party and is still stinging from his rebuke. She's a delicate blonde bea ...more

So Kinsey has got herself in a difficult situation through no fault of her own and needs Team 52 to rescue her, especially Smith Creed who is so big and deadly and makes her feel safe.

Both are attracted to each other and both of them have their own set of emotional baggage to deal with.

Sometimes bad things happen to good people. Kinsey had a difficult start in her life, with a drunken father and a mother who only cared about herself. However, Kinsey managed to leave behind all that without losing her joy of living, she got a good job, with excellent partners... The only thing she needs to have a perfect life is that the man she loves corresponds to her. An almost perfect life, until the day when everything changed and she became the target of a terrorist organization...

Great story!
One kidnapped woman and it’s all action, working to find her and get her back. Smith is determined to get Kinsey safely home. Such an adventure it is! Smith has been admiring Kinsey from a safe distance. Kinsey has been yearning for him as well. After a previous rejection, she gives him space. There’s nothing like having someone you care for in danger to get you motivated! What a delightful romance in the midst of battling crazed criminals. You can’t beat this kind of action-adventu

We start in the middle of Kinsey’s kidnapping. Bad guys want one of the ancient artifacts that Team 52 guards as her Ransom. Smith is beside himself while they search for a clue that will lead the Team to her.

Once she’s back safe, Smith walks away because he can’t let himself like/love a woman; his ex really messed with his head. Kinsey has always wanted Smith but he’s pushed her away often enough she understands, she’s not the kind of woman a man like Smith could love- just lik

Picking up from the segue at the end of the previous book, we find Kinsey kidnapped, and Smith and the rest of Team 52 on the hunt for her.
As usual when Team 52 is involved, a powerful, ancient artifact is involved, and some people want it badly enough to use Kinsey as leverage.
The big bad is an ever-present threat in this book, and unfortunately for Kinsey, she is an easy target.

Keeps getting better!

The action is hot in this one, as usual for Anna Hackett! Kinsey is the office manager and was kidnapped at the end of book 2. Smith has wanted her from the start, but never thought he was good enough for her. The twists and turns in this story keep you guessing up to the end. The pace is breakneck, the tone is intense, the storyline is action oriented with character development and some steamy scenes and vivid characters. Now we have to wait for Blair's story in 2019!

Team 52 led by Smith rescue here and commits himself to protecting her and not revealing his love for her because of some reason or another. The story isn't bad at all, but it seems like the same story as the last few books, just with a different artifact and terrorist group.

Team 52 is BADASS and their partners are equally awesome.

When you read the Team 52 books, read them in order. If you started with this book, go back and read the first two! The characters develop throughout each book, focusing on a different team member but continuing to include everyone. The interaction between the characters as each story develops, the intricate plots, the ups and downs of each relationship and the sizzling love screens all combine for a book you don't want to put down.

I love this authors stories. They are non-stop action, adventure and danger often surrounding a mysterious and deadly artifact. Saving the world is the order of the day with Ms. Hacketts novels. Kinsey and Smith are both complicated characters with traumatic pasts that have shaped them, neither feeling worthy of the other but ultimately unable to resist their pull to each other. When Kinsey is kidnapped Smith will do anything and everything to get her back and keep her safe. They make a perfect ...more

More like 3.5 stars. I enjoyed it more than Book 1, but less than Book 2. I'm thinking I just don't like being stuck in Las Vegas (not going to lie, in real life, I don't like being stuck in Las Vegas, either). Also, how many times can a girl get kidnapped? I hope this doesn't continue to be a theme in the series. I want the team to go out in the field a bit more, like her THS series. Here's hoping that happens in the upcoming books.

This couple was adorable. The previous two stories introduced us to their personalities so I already enjoyed them individually before they became a couple. This book starts off directly after the ending of book two. The story follows the same plot in that an artifact is in danger and so is one of the team, but the team will find a way to save the day. Along the way we see some action, romance, miscommunication and intrigue. This is a fun series and I am looking fo

So good. This maybe my favorite so far. Kinsey and Smith are everything. I loved there dynamic. I loved that Kinsey was all in and Smith was to when he knew she was it for him. Again, such a great story with everything romance, action, great characters, and heat! I can’t wait for The next one. I think Luke and Blaire is going to be so, so good!
