Leslie aka StoreyBook Reviews
This is the first book by this author that I have read and she does not disappoint especially if you like romantic suspense with some heat!

Peyton West ends up in Tampa when her sister and brother-in-law are run down by a rogue motorist. Little did she know what the reason went much deeper than anyone can imagine. While we are presented with some of the facts from the outset, there are twists that no one could expect and it kept the story interesting. Her sister's doctor recommends her brother's

3-1/2 Stars!!

I love the idea of their being a group like Galaxy out there. These guys are badass. They go above & beyond for their clients. I really liked all of the guys & am looking forward to getting their stories as well.

I did like Peyton & Blaze’s story. These two were very hot together. I really liked getting to see both of them get justice & a happy ending.

I love conspiracies & trying to put all the pieces together. It was an interesting & different take getting the bad people’s perspect

Retrograde is a well plotted quite complex story that had me hooked from the very beginning. The twists and turns and surprises just kept happening at a very rapid pace, an edge of your seat mix of action and sizzling romance and tension and revelations and finally elation.
What a fantastic start to a new series, it doesn’t get any better than this. Highly recommend.

Another win for Desiree and her loveable Seals

Start with a politically ambitious lawyer, the local Mafia, a woman trying to find justice for her sister and brother in law, add a powerful team of reunited Navy Seals and prepare to read nonstop as the Galaxy team solves the case.

This was a great story! Once again this author invented a group of men that take on the hard problems other can't solve. Blaze was a fantastic character and a part of Galaxy. Peyton was also wonderful and needed their help. This story had it all. Suspense, action, romance,and sexy time. I can't wait for the next one! Loved it!

Retrograde is full of action and heat. This book will get your heart racing in more ways than one. Whether it's the action or the heat between Peyton and Blaze, you'll be turning pages until the end. There are enough twists to keep the plot interesting, and the pacing is perfect. Definitely a book to keep a cool glass of water nearby while reading! ...more

Good read

This was a good start to a new series from Desiree Holt, Blaze and Peyton's connection was swift but solid, plenty of action, suspense and I love the airplane for an office idea, looking forward to the next book.

What a great story

I loved it, the tragedy, heartbreak, a great team working for you and finding the love of your life. It tore at your heart while making you so angry that people could do the things they do without regard for others. Can't wait until book 2 comes out.
