Overview

Trust is a four-letter word…

Command Force Alpha, Book 2

Captain Laurence Madigan is an anomaly—a levelheaded risk taker who learned the dark side of life in Manchester’s slums. He needed those skills to survive fourteen months as a prisoner of Firebird, a shadowy Russian cartel.

When rescued, he receives less than a hero’s welcome. He’s considered a wild card—or even a double agent. After enduring agony and degradation for Command Force Alpha, he’s determined to clear his name and bring Firebird down…even if it means escaping CFA’s London facility with a very personal hostage.

Oxford-educated psychologist Gemma Calloway should fight her abductor tooth and claw, but loyalty to her old friend wins out. Isolated in a rustic hideaway, she tends his wounds and can’t help staring at his scars and prison tattoos.

Their impromptu safe house becomes a haven of uneasy trust and potent, gathering desires. As they sort present dangers from past affection, Gemma realizes she’s in over her head…and up to her heart with longing for a good man whose last reason for living could be revenge.

Warning: This book contains a sexy British spy whose year-long imprisonment has left him a little…pent-up. And scarred. And possibly untrustworthy. Watch out for fast-and-furious sexuality, dares that cement a friendship against all odds, and oh-so-wrong but oh-so-sexy tattoos.

This is not my usual fare as military-type stories don’t generally appeal to me, but I’m very glad I kept reading this book! Capt. Laurence Madigan is a tough, commanding man who is used to getting what he wants. He is loyal and determined to complete his mission. Gemma Calloway is a great compliment to Laurence’s personality – kind, but with a spine of steel, she can simultaneously care for Laurence’s psychological pain without taking any of his crap. Laurence and Gemma’s survivalist journey brings their fiery personalities together with primal, sensual results. This passion combined with the constant, well-paced action makes for an exciting and compelling read. Originally posted at Plot Twist Reviews [dot] Com I received this book for free from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Snap (Command Force Alpha) Katie Porter Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews Genre: Romantic Suspense. Second book in the C.F.A. series and though each book is a stand alone you’ll enjoy it better if you’ve read book one. That mentions the capture and disappearance of Laurie, and introduces some of the characters we meet in this book. this novel is centred around Laurie who finally escaped after fourteen months of imprisonment and torture, and is undergoing Psych assessments by his colleague and good friend Gemma. He was taken by a Russian group called Firebird, and as he’s wearing their tattoo there’s a question of his loyalty to be answered. Is he back with C.F.A. or is he a double agent? While he’s undergoing yet another session with Gemma he takes the chance to escape – he wants to clear his name and bring down Firebird, and he knows the movements of a key member but needs to move fast. He could involve C.F.A. but wants to go it alone, he thinks they’ll wait for more info and miss the narrow time window to get him. Its another fast paced, intriguing and suspense packed novel. Add on to that the fact that he and Gemma have a tentative history of attraction that was never quite given in to, and the sensuality is clear right from the start. Thrown together in hiding from C.F.A. Gemma needs to make a decision – go with him, her friend Laurie, trust him that he’s not playing her, or do what she ought to do and turn him in? Trust – that’s where it comes in, and Laurie also needs to trust her, to believe she’s with him and not playing him, leading him back to capture. Its a steamy, carnal, erotic ride when the two finally give in to the lust between them. Is it just lust though or could there be more? do they trust each other and can anything come of their fledgling relationship. I really enjoyed this read – I’m not a huge suspense reader but this is just the right amount for me. A group of people that I feel I know and like, suspense that's easy for me to follow ( I hate it when it gets overcomplicated and I’m always two steps behind) and when there’s a solid romance with some risqué sensuality thrown in that makes a perfect read for me. Stars: Five. ARC supplied by publishers.
