Author Geri Foster
Stars 4 out of 5
I found this book free on Amazon and thought why not it might be a bit on the predictable side but maybe fun. Lets say if you have a check list trust me everything will be check off when it comes to Romantic Military suspense books.
Russians Bad, American's Good, Tall Dark and Handsome Alpha Male, Sassy Heroine who is in the wrong place at the wrong time, and she swoons over hot alpha males amazing hot body. Along with lots and lots guns, chases, bombs, houses blowing up, ex boyfriends, siblings, best friends better than family and the list goes on.
Corporate attorney, Emily Richards is sent to Russia to mediate for her law firm but while she is there she tests out her "friends" latest technology for fun. John "Mac" McKinsey is running away from the Russians and needs an escape so he tucks himself away in Emily Hotel room until it is time to leave on her Corporate jet. Insert hot body, amazing abs and curves in all the right places, sex and you have the first few chapters in the book. This book has lots of fast pace actions scenes make up for some of the more cheesy elements in the first half of the book.
I feel Emily Richardson is reason I gave this book its four stars instead of one because of her very easy going character as well as her sassy attitude. Thankfully the author didn't create a cry in the corner or why did you do that character for Emily otherwise I would have given this book a 1. Thankfully Emily is fun sassy in a good way. She loves her job, her quiet life, and doesn't want adventure but when it happens she goes with the flow. Emily has baggage but it makes you find her more human. I love that the author doesn't allow her to get mowed down by the Alpha males in the book and stands on her own to feet.
This book has lot of predictable moments but again the author makes up for that in the banter between characters, actions scenes and a few sexy scenes but instead of having Emily pine away for Mac she moves on.
All is all this book is a quick fun book you can read on those long cold winter nights or tuck it away for summer to read by the pool on that warm vacation you are thinking about.
Thanks Heidi for this review -
Synopsis: Falcon Securities is a clandestine agency owned by Frank Hamilton, which works exclusively for the President of the United States and the Department of Defense.
After a Russian mission goes south, Falcon agent John 'Mac' McKinsey is stranded with assassins on his trail. His boss arranges for him to hitch a ride with the corporate attorney, Emily Richards, who is in Russia as a mediator.
Emily Richards wants only to return home then on to a peaceful vacation with her best friend. When armed men invaded her hotel room minutes after Mac arrives, Emily is forced to depend on the agent to stay alive. Anger that Mac has entangled her in a life or death struggle quickly turns to fear when the men pursuing them call her by name.
Together Mac and Emily engage in a tumultuous ride to escape with their lives and capture a crazed bomber and a vindictive drug lord. More difficult is tearing down their own emotional walls. Can they succeed and admit that live is the most precious thing in life?
