These Salvation Society books have done a real number on my emotions. I have gone through a plethora of them but I love them all. Jenn and Cade have gone through so much together and could be so much more but Cade keeps fighting it. I loved how Jenn knew what she wanted and didn't let him escape. The suspense had me on the edge of my seat and their chemistry kept me reading. ...more

Tara Ames is a new-to-me-author and after reading Lethal, her contribution to Corinne Michaels' Salvation Society World, it will definitely not be the last! Jennifer Rollins and Cade O'Leary have known each other since they were kids, and have been the best of friends their whole lives. There is intense heat and chemistry behind the "friends" wall each have built to protect themselves. Tragedy strikes when they lose both sets of parents in the 9/11 attacks and when Cade becomes a SEAL, their con ...more

Really enjoyed this friends to lovers romance. Cade and Jenn had been friends for pretty much their whole lives. They both suffered through the loss of their parents due to 9/11. All they had was each other. Jenn has wanted more from Cade for a long time but he only sees Jenn as a sister.

Until one night they finally share a passionate kiss and Jenn finally thinks Cade sees her as a woman. Then he pushes her away yet again. Eight years go by and there is little contact with each other, mainly du

I absolutely loved this book! I am extremely impressed with the interaction between Jenn and Cade. They seem like their differences may be too much to overcome, and yet they both share the same loss.
This is one of the first books that I have read that incorporates the tragedy of 9/11. I was concerned about how it could be written in with respect of something so terrible, and yet it worked. Great job Author Tara L. Ames! I most definitely read more from you!

I received this book in Advanced Readers Copy for my honest and truthful review. Lethal is heartbreakingly beautiful, tragic, and suspenseful. Unable to put it down I was sitting on edge following Cade and Jenn through heartbreak and forgiveness. Watching them grow and divide. Through one experience after another I couldn’t get enough. I absolutely recommend this book to readers of second chances and of those who enjoy couples who together can overcome and persevere.

Cade is everything I look for in a hero, protective, loyal, a little bit broken and trying to save Jenn from himself. I love Jenn for her caring, her tenderness, her bravery and her surety that Cade is her future, her home, her sanity. This emotional story is well written and meaningful. Seeing Cade grow and stretch is my favorite part of this book. The action, the suspense pushes you into their lives deeper and deeper.

This was the first book by Tara that I’ve read. And I loved it! Jenn and Cade were burning up the sheets, once Cade finally got his head out of his @$$. Then, bad stuff happens, and he has to rescue her. But Jenn also doesn’t go down without a fight, because she’s wicked smart and has listened when Cade gave her advice in the past. After some more twisty turns, (I was like whoa!) They do get their HEA. As far as they go as characters, they had chemistry that I could feel. I wanted to knock some ...more

What an absolutely amazing story. I read this in one go as I couldn't get enough of them. I was hooked. The storyline was incredible and had some twists along the way that I totally wasn't expecting but were oh so good. The characters were fantastic and I absolutely loved them. Incredible read. ...more

The story has pain, secrets, suspense, and heartbreak.

This is Jenn and Cade’s story. They have been friends forever. They have been there for each other through a lot. The loss of both their parents from 9/11 and still they have remained friends. They both want more but he deemed himself unworthy of her and her love. She is about to push him on that belief. The pull has always been there between them. There is also danger coming can they fight the danger?

Soooo.... I really wanted to love this one....
I read each word until around the 20% mark and I simply had to start skipping around until I finished the story. I couldn’t get into it. Cade just didn’t do anything for me. In fact, I wanted to punch him several times... *sigh*
