'Suspense that will keep you on the edge of your seat' - Bella
***Featured in the 'WE LOVED IT' section on Woman's Own***
Levi Butcher is singularly devoted to his work. As team leader for the GO-Team, his unwavering focus is on the mission. Levi knows all too well that one minor distraction can hold deadly consequences. But with the soothing, sensual voice of "Babe," the team's communication expert, constantly in his ear, keeping his concentration on the dangerous work at hand is becoming extremely difficult.
Jina Modell definitely doesn't feel like a "Babe," especially when she's working with the gruff, no-nonsense Levi. When the base where she's stationed is attacked, Jina manages to escape but the rest of the team, working some distance away, is exfiltrated, thinking Jina died in the explosion-leaving her stranded. To survive, she's got to figure out how to get back to safety before she's discovered by the enemy.
Levi would never willingly leave a soldier behind, especially a brave woman whose sweet voice haunts his every thought. Once he discovers Jina is alive, the tenacious warrior will walk into fire to save this intriguing woman who has captured his heart.
Howard (Troublemaker) delivers an exciting standalone romantic thriller, featuring nuanced characters in extraordinary circumstances who still feel relatable and warm. Jina Modell has a desk job in communications for a secret government agency; she's surprised to be transferred to a black-ops group that needs someone to run its comms. Jina's never been a quitter, but the training that team leader Levi Butcher puts her through makes her reconsider whether she wants this exciting new gig. Almost half the book covers her intense workouts and long runs while she learns to use a high-tech drone and proves herself a tough, capable member of Levi's team. As the team travels the world to conduct surveillance and complete missions, she regrets that she can't act on the intense attraction drawing her and Levi together. Howard skillfully delays Levi and Levi and Jina's coming together until it feels like a well-deserved payoff, using the time to show relationships between the close-knit crew, who work seamlessly together. A subplot involving a crooked congresswoman is barely needed.
I enjoyed this book immensely. It was funny, laced with suspense and the levels of tension between characters was well balanced. While some may feel the blurb did not accurately represent the full narrative, i remind you that blurbs are subjective; a summary of comprehension and opinion. I think there is a wealth of enjoyment here for ‘romance readers’.
The Woman Left Behind
The details outlining the plot didn’t really marry up with how the book read however it was a great read and hard to put down. Just wanted to keep reading to see what happened next.
The Woman Left Behind
Who ever wrote the synopsis of this book needs firing! Nothing was the same as stated in the synopsis although I still enjoyed the book due mainly because of the characters. But I still feel cheated as these books aren’t cheap and there is no refund. Someone should look into getting this right so readers aren’t being short changed.
