Library JournalIn this second entry in the “Bagram Special Ops” series, Capt. Candace Bradford is still reeling from the operation that ended with her friend Devon in the hospital. Although she is grateful for Staff Sergeant Ryan Wentworth’s help during Devon’s recovery, Ryan should know better than to flirt outwardly with an officer. After all that Candace has worked for, she can’t allow this flirtation to go any further. Ryan is known as a player, but he feels something more for Candace. When Candace’s team responds to his call for help in the field, Ryan doesn’t know whether to be relieved that he knows where she is or terrified that she has joined him in this hellish situation. Enemy forces on three sides, an uncooperative weather front, and a dangerous mountain throw Ryan and Candace together to fight for their lives and the lives of their crew members.
Verdict Cross expertly builds both the romance and the suspense in this novel that should appeal to fans of both genres. The buildup of the secondary story line involving Maya and Jackson will have patrons anxiously awaiting the next series entry. The heat level here is intense, which may exclude this title from some conservative romance collections.—Heather Lisa Maneiro, Minnesota State Univ. Lib.‚ Moorhead
