Overview

When terrorists take Navy SEAL Rafe Kelly's brother, he'll do anything to get him back, but will beautiful hostage negotiator Claire get caught in the crossfire?Ring around the rosy, a pocket full of posies, ashes, ashes we all fall down . . .That simple rhyme turns negotiator Claire Michaels' current hostage situation into an international incident. Claire just wants to help get everyone out safely, but as the crisis escalates she realizes she's dealing with an al-Qaeda operative who has the means to become another bin Laden---with the potential to attack America. Claire has her own personal reasons for wanting to stop al-Qaeda, but time is slipping away as negotiations break down. Can she overcome her scars of the past in order to get the hostage out alive and possibly stop an assault on U.S. national security?Navy SEAL Rafe Kelly is on leave to recover from a knee injury he suffered during his tour in Afghanistan and he doesn't expect to be fighting terrorists on his home turf. But when he is taken hostage and his brother is kidnapped, Rafe teams up with a hostage negotiator in order to stay alive and get his brother back. The terrorist is always one step ahead of them, however, and the situation quickly turns from desperate to deadly. Will Rafe be able to save himself and his country without anyone he loves getting caught in the crossfire?#1 Amazon Bestseller for Action Adventure/RomanceRONE Award Winner for Best SuspenseOther books in the Hostage Negotiation Team series:All Fall Down (Hostage Negotiation Team #1)Falling Slowly (Hostage Negotiation Team #1.5)Ashes Ashes (Hostage Negotiation Team #2)From the Ashes (Hostage Negotiation Team #2.5)Pocket Full of Posies (Hostage Negotiation Team #3)Forget Me Not (Hostage Negotiation Team #3.5)Ring Around the Rosie (Hostage Negotiation Team #4)

Full of action and suspense I am new reader to author Julie Coulter Bellon and I have to say that if all of her books are like All Fall Down, then she has a new fan! All Fall Down is definitely a suspense novel full of action, intrigue and a little bit of romance as well. The characters are both extremely strong-willed or stubborn shall we say? It was fun seeing Claire and Rafe's dynamic together when they were both so head-strong. The book flowed well and I never felt like there was a part that was slow or failing to hold my interest. I really enjoyed the premise of the book and the action and suspense kept me on my toes throughout! Four stars! I received a copy of this book for free and this is my honest review.

I love it when a book jumps right into the story.  Page one and you are interested and can't wait to read more.  Rafe is a Navy Seal on medical leave and walks into his fathers office building hoping to run into an employee he knew from Afghanistan. He is shocked when he meets his friend with a bomb on his chest and he is taken to the roof as a hostage.   Claire is a hostage negotiator who is sent it to deal with the situation.  There is more to the story than meets the eye and soon Rafe and Claire are on the run to save the lives of a family member and possibly the entire country. I was sad whenever I had to put this book down.  It held my attention, surprised me, and thoroughly entertained me.  Squeeky clean, I would recommend this book to any teen or adult.

This was a fantastic book! I was totally hooked from the beginning, I actually read this pretty much in one sitting because I couldn't put it down! The author does a masterful job of taking you from one intense situation (a hostage situation on page 1) to another intense situation, and so on which compels you to keep reading and turning the pages until suddenly it's 3 am and you didn't even realize it! Her characters are very realistic and her dialogue is very believable, two things that I always look for and appreciate in a novel. I was thrown for a loop more than once, which made the book memorable. I will definitely read it again! I have read everything by this author, and this is my new favorite. Read it, you'll love it!

Enjoyed this story. It's short but we'll worth reading.

The story was just ok...seemed a little far fetched at times...one thing, tho, in almost all of the books i have read in the last year the heroine "bites" or "nibbles" on her lower lip. Is there a formula for lazy authors who need to put a little descriptive color in their novels? It occurs in many books with many different authors...it's a real interest stopper...use your brain, guys...think for yourself

I really do believe that a bond and friendship like the one Claire and Rafe had would be formed in a situation like this. I loved this book! I just bought the next 2 in the series I can’t wait to read them!

While seal stories should be dramatic and extraordinary, this one seemed predictable and forced with a lot of true phrases. Have it 3 starts because I wanted to like it but it was a chore to finish it.
