team The secondary characters were ntertaining and I hope to read their booksMultiple The secondary characters were ntertaining and I hope to read their booksMultiple beyond the MCs normally drive me crazy but in this case it workedFor those who have read it I LOVED the scene at the Cabaret end about being nauseous Safety Gang view spoilerHero was NOT a manwhoreNeither are virgins she was previouslyngaged to a cheaterThey forget the condom the first timeThe sex comes pretty late in the story but the steam is there and I was not frustrated by it ven though I prefer sexy times in my booksHeroine is in denial but never actually pushes him awayHero is all in immediatelyStoryline has a cliffy but their relationship has very good closure hide spoiler Wow I want to rate it a 10 This is a new author for me but one that will be an auto buy from now on The only negative to this book is having to wait until March to read the next #Book This One Ends #This one nds a cliffhanger The suspense characters and romance come together to make an amazing book I couldn t put it downBeth is not a psychic After dreaming of three Navy Seals that are killed on board a flight to Hawaii she is compelled to go to the airport to see who is boarding this plane She recognizes Zane and his friends immediately Now she has to figure out how to approach them without seeming like a nut For those that say this book is slow at the beginning I have to disagree I ve had this book on my shelf for over a year having downloaded it when it showed up as a Kindle freebie Friends recommended Story not bad but narration was the pits Didn t really njoy It got much much better after my 22% status update In fact I stayed up late to finish it Which brings me to why it lost a whole two stars it would have lost one anyway for the clunky tedious beginning It doesn t actually have an nding I suppose you might call it a cliff hanger but I call it a cop out You can keep the thread of mystery going and still Trading Places: The Netherlandish Merchants in Early Modern Venice end the actual story you re telling But this onends in a way that makes the whole story feel almost like an En plein coeur excerpt Pretty darn infuriating after slogging through the beginning getting sucked into the action and just starting to get a feel for the chemistry of the charactersThere was one other thing that was just plain wrongSPOILER ALERTOne of the characters not the lead has to sit through a video tape of a woman being brutally gang raped He s being shown this tape by the woman s husband she s been abducted and the man is asking for help So when this character meets this woman face to face for the first time you would assume his first response to her would be sexual awareness right No You wouldn t think that NEITHER WOULD I It was really bizarre The guy s first thoughts on seeing this woman off screen are sexual And it s not addressed that it s an odd reaction for any other reason than the fact this particular character hates women from of course some past trauma and he acknowledges she s married What about the fact that your onlyxposure to her has been seeing her tied to a bed while three different men rough her up and rape her It was seriously The Bookshop on the Shore effed up SPOILER OVERIn the acknowledgments the author thanks several people for their diligent hard work reading and rereading this book before publishing I would have thought one of them might raise a red flag on the above story line I know I would haveSo am I going to read the next one when it comes out in the summer I honestly don t know I m interested in the lead character s story. Re Lieutenant Commander Zane Winters comes from a bloodline oflite warriors with psychic abilities When Zane and two of his platoon buddies arrive at Sea Tac Airport he has a vision of his teammates’ corpses Then she arrives a leggy blonde who sets off a different kind of alarm As Beth teams up wi. Hope is the most Dance Real Slow exciting thing in life and if you honestly believe that love is out there it will come Andven if it doesn t come straight away there is still that chance all through your life that it will by Josh Hartnett 35 starsLt Commander Zane Winters is a Navy SEAL Zane and his SEAL buddies Cosky and Rawls are on leave and ready to board a plane They want to attend a friend s wedding in Hawaii Beth Brown comes to the terminal because she had a nightmare of a deadly plane hijacking and she saw Zane die on the plane She hopes that Zane is able to prevent this disaster Zane Winters is psychic He s got a few flashes and knows that something is about to go down on the plane he and his buddies are about to board Therefore he isn t really surprised when Beth tells him about her dream He believes her and he is sure that Beth is his soul mate He s got his hands fullhe has to chase the terrorists and protect his woman all at the same timeBe prepared for uite a lot of violence People are dying and there are kids in jeopardy and there s rape too And there s a lot of swearing However I have to say that nothing was written overtly graphicSLIGHT SPOILERAbout midway through the book there was a scene when Mac did something really painful and rather shocking I was stunned to the core But I had to forgive him The bad guy deserved it and I think that Mac has something really sad and painful hidden beneath his steely armor I have to confess that I am really dying here I want to read and know really about Jace Mackenzie I hope that Mac and Amy will be an item I know that Cosky s story will be released in summer 2012 Maybe there will be The Art of Memoir enough room for Mac and Amy besides Cosky s story Darn this waiting is SO hard And let me take a wild guessRawls and Ginny will be an item tooEND OF SPOILERThe book took up a lot of pace about midway through the story The long action scene was really really good Obviously the story is lacking in the romance department But I have to admit it s kind of understandable This whole plot takes place WITHIN A FEW HOURS Zane and Beth met during an incredibly strained situation therefore one can txpect hearts and flowers Nevertheless when Zane and Beth had their get together they were steaming up the closet But you ll have to wait long for this particular sceneWhile the story unfolds you will get to know a few interesting secondary characters The author left some interesting hints about a few particular men and women They could serve as future HhWhy I couldn t rate it 4 starsFinally Beth ticked me off Her mommy issues and her relationship problems sealed the deal for me This woman is in her late twenties but she acted a tad too childish for my liking She was just looking for a reason to cause a conflict Gosh usually one shouldn t look so hard for that As a rule this can t come to no good Further Zane s demeanor was kind of overkill at timesAs I already mentioned before there wasn t The Day Christ Was Born: The True Account of the First 24 Hours of Jesus's Life enough romance and the point at issue is this couldn t lead tonough relationship development I wanted uality time for Hh Unfortunately that did not happen Frankly I was so ngrossed with Zane s CO Jace Mackenzie that I didn t care nough for
Zane And Beth Shame On and Beth Shame on When I wrote the above mentioned uote I was thinking ofJace Shame on me Again The uote fits the main couple though Forged in Fire was an ntertaining and uite ngrossing read and I m sure that all those military romantic suspense addicts will appreciate this book Naturally there s still room for improvement but the start to this series is rather promising Don t PostgreSQL Server Programming - Second Edition expect the usual HEA the storynds with a definite cliffhanger And I think Forged in Ice the seuel will pick up right where Forged in Fire left off I m looking forward to read seuel A #Diamond In The Rough #in the rough McCallan s in Fire delivers submachine guns admirable heroes and heart wrenching nail biting suspense back to the genre Romantic suspense novels deliver tension Joe has to save Jennifer or Jennifer has to save Joe and the country but most romantic suspense novels fail to deliver the other half of that coin the practical details that lend realism to unimaginable scenes These details also lend weight to the hero s plight and credence to his credentials For once I didn t have to suspend disbel.

In that one but if I m going to get a flipping the bird nonnding again I might be of a mind to skip it A fast action romance suspense impressive for a debut I think fans of Catherine Mann or Nina Bruhn will The Taste of Night (Signs of the Zodiac, especiallynjoy Albeit a highly implausible story it was ntertaining Lt Commander Zane #Winters has a history of seeing visions of vents to come Though they are never clear and detailed they #has a history of seeing visions of vents to come Though they are never clear and detailed they always accurate So when he gets flashes of danger on the airline him and his SEAL team 7 buddies are
