Not as good as her tracer series. Anticlimactic ending.

"Alpha Crew:The Mission Begins" blurb gives you all you need to know to read Ryan and Emma's story. A romantic suspense, the action starts from the beginning in 'At the Edge' and doesn't stop until the last page of 'Edge of Surrender'. Rereading them in one book was better than when I read them last year waiting for the second novella. The reader gets Ryan and Emma's full story with romance and suspense. I look forward to more of the same in part 3 of the series as it is Ethan's story, another of the Seal team. Well done to whomever put parts 1 and 2 together and giving readers what we want in Ryan and Emma's complete story and their HEA. I would like to thank NetGalley and Pocket Star for gifting me "Alpha Crew:The Mission Begins". My opinion is my own. This is mine. 4.75 Stars!

Even though Emma’s father is a Congressman, she’s been very independent and has been as a PA for a US Ambassador’s wife. When their plane goes down in the jungle, Emma finds herself the sole survivor. When the rescue team Alpha Crew leader Ryan sees a picture of Emma, he’s determined to not leave the jungle without her. Something about her calls to him. I didn’t expect that I’d like these two novellas, so I was pleasantly surprised when I read through them quite quickly. These novellas actually gave a full story that I enjoyed. We got to learn way more to Emma that met the eyes and I liked unravelling it all as Ryan did. I look forward to reading more from this author. I recommend. **I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

Overall I enjoyed this book. The suspense did not build, which I liked actually, it started off strong, kept a good pace and introduced the characters in well written way. It dragged a little for me 3/4 of the way through, I figured where were going and actually got a little bored with the story and then I felt it ended abruptly. I wanted more.

AT The Edge: 4.5 Almost Perfect Stars! This was almost perfect. An exciting storyline, hunky Seal Hero and an admirable heroine. Emma is in danger and Ryan is determined to protect her, but he wants to protect her too much. The attraction is instant and very hot, but for some reason Ryan doesn't want to give in to it. I'm not really sure why he's trying to stay hands off with her. If he pursued her instead of the other way around, this would have been a solid five star for me. Despite that, I love the writing. This does end on a cliffhanger. Edge of Surrender: 4.5 Almost Perfect Stars! Edge of Surrender picked up right where the first book left off. In the first book, it was almost perfect except for Ryan's hesitation at getting physical with Emma. You know he's attracted to her but he kept trying to put her off and I wasn't sure why. In this 2nd book, Ryan realizes he can't keep her at a distance and allows himself to have her all the while protecting her from an unknown enemy. Once again, I say this was almost perfect. What kept it from a solid 5 Stars was the rushed ending. It felt a little incomplete because of it, but I'm hoping it's because there is a third book and we'll see these two again. Also, we got Jake and Alexa's romance as a very, very brief side note. A possible book coming our way for these two? ARC provided by NetGalley

What can I say but exciting, fast, and sexy. Ryan the hot Alpha Crew team leader takes the word alpha to a whole knew level and when he meets and is sent to rescue Emma; more than sparks fly. The have a combustible relationship that leads to them both discovering what they really want and need in life. This two book special was a fast enjoyable read that makes me hungry for more. Thank you NetGalley and Laura Griffin for allowing me to read and leave and honest review of this book.

4 Stars! Alpha Crew: The Mission Begins is a compilation of Laura Griffin's Alpha Crew Series books #1 & #2. Meet the Heroine & Hero: Emma is the assistant to a US Ambassador's wife. They are currently serving in the Philippines on goodwill missions bringing vaccinations & good sanitation practices to the people. Her father is a US Congressman. She's pretty, resourceful & has plenty of spunk. Ryan is a Navy Seal & is the leader of a top secret, super elite team within the Seals. He is gorgeous, strong & sweet. The Story: On the way to their most recent goodwill mission, Emma's plane goes down over the Philippine jungle & she is the lone survivor. She has to figure out in a hurry how to survive on her own while also trying to signal for help. Ryan's ultra elite Seal team is tapped to go into the jungle & rescue any survivors of the crash. They are able to locate Emma in short order & of course there is instant attraction between Ryan & Emma. Once back stateside they part ways since the mission is over. But after a few weeks, Emma starts to have questions about the findings in the crash investigations, because things aren't adding up. She's asking questions all over the place & is now being followed & her life threatened. Seems there might be someone who doesn't want the truth to come out. Enter in Ryan again once he is made aware of her situation. He hasn't been able to stop thinking about her & wants to keep her safe. Ryan & Emma now have to fight an invisible enemy to figure out what is going on & to keep themselves alive, all while not knowing who in the government they can trust. The Verdict: I really enjoyed this book! It was a fun & fast paced read. It had a believable mystery that kept me interested the whole way through with a few hot, sexy times thrown in. This is a great weekend or road trip read! I'm glad that this particular edition had both of Emma & Ryan's books in one since they were on the shorter side individually. This was my first Laura Griffin book & I will definitely read more from this author. *ARC provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

This brings the 2 books together (Alpha Crew 1 and 2) and so hang on, they are action packed! At The Edge Crazy good and twisty like a roller coaster ride! This book starts with a bang right from the prologue and then chapter one and then fighting through the rain forest and running for their lives in San Diego. Edge of Surrender This book picks up right where part 1 stops and thank goodness for that! I was on the edge of my seat and it was not a comfortable place to be. The twists and turns keep you guessing about what is going on and who is involved and what is going to happen. The chemistry between Ryan and Emma is explosive and makes you cheer for them to find that happy ending. I really recommend this series and hope it continues. I had read both books previously for review and was thrilled to receive this combined ARC and get the chance to read them again. It was just as thrilling the second time through and I read this in a quick afternoon when I should have been sleeping since I had to work that night. **Received this ARC from the publisher via NetGalley**

This is a new full length book combining two previously published novellas. At the Edge and Edge of Surrender kick off a new series about a team of Alpha SEAL's and the women who win their hearts. This book is the story of Emma Wright and Ryan Owens. When Emma's plane goes down in a jungle in the Philippines, Ryan is part of the team that goes in for the rescue mission. Emma is the soke survivor and Ryan is the one who finds her and gets her out of that jungle alive. A few months later, back in the states it seems that a cover up about what really happened to the plane is in play and Emma is trying to get to the bottom of the situation and find out why. She seeks out Ryan trying to get the truth out there not realizing the danger she is putting herself in doing this. It doesn't take long for danger to find her then she once again finds herself being saved by Ryan. They may have been able to ignore the attraction they felt before but now they are spending a lot of time together and ignoring it is no longer an option! This is a fantastic start to what should be an amazing series. It's fast paced, high action, and twists and turns in the story that keep you reading page after page. It has a great group of characters and should give us some amazing stories. I highly recommend this one!
