Best book I have read all summer!! Janie Crouch has done it again! Omega Sector has a strong beautiful woman in their midst. I had no idea just how strong Lillian was until I got to know her better in this book. She is a little dynamo. She may be just a tiny thing but she is so strong!! Her tragic past is something that she keeps totally bottled up inside away from everyone. The one person that she never wants to find out about her terrifying past is the one person who can help her face her demons. Jace is recruited to help Omega Sector catch Freihof a dangerous criminal who has it out for Omega Sector. Jace was Lillian’s boyfriend back home when she was just a young girl. If you love suspense with a touch of romance thrown in you will love this book!

It’s breathtaking. Literally. The plan was to read it in one sitting, but I had to stop three-quarters of the way through to catch my breath. Wow! Lillian is an amazing, incredibly strong heroine; Jace is the perfect counterpart. Derek’s cameo is brilliant. Great story – both Lil’s and Jace’s story, and the bigger story that is Under Siege. Plot twists that I would never have guessed in a million years. Simply fantastic. (I got it yesterday and I have read it twice already!)

Unexpected twists from start to finish! We're closing in on the end of this series, so the story line is winding up one bit at a time. With this book, we learn Lillian's past and figure out who the traitor is. It's exhilarating and shocking as we go from one plot twist to another learning things we never knew about one of the most present members of this team that we've loved for so long. I'm looking forward to the big finale ... except I'm going to be heartbroken to lose this group of friends that have entertained along the way! Omega Sector agent Lillian Muir has worked long and hard for her position on the elite SWAT team, and no one would expect the past she has survived. She's surprised to see the new guy coming on board for temporary help during an assignment. She knew him once upon a time ... and worse yet, he knew her and her past! Jace Eakin served with Omega Sector big wig Ren McClement 10 years ago in the Middle East, so when he calls him asking for a favor, he's all in. He might be there serving as a warm body to fill an assignment on the team, but most importantly, he's working behind the scenes to try to figure out who the mole is ... and who's setting up Lillian for a fall!

We are back to Omega Sector, a task force made up of an elite group of law enforcers. The group continues to search both for the mole amongst them, and the evil man determined to eliminate every member of the force. This story belongs to Lillian Muir , SWAT TEAM’S only female member and one with a past she has keeps a secret . The man she once loved and who believes she betrayed him, twelve years ago, is temporarily assigned to the team in order find out who is the mole. Needless to say, the meeting not only shocked Lillian but also made it clear that both were still attracted to each other. It’s a story filled with suspense , sitting on the edge of your seat moments, good guys, bad guys, whodunnit, and of course, romance. But it’s also a story that at times is heartbreaking and brings to light how terrible experiences can cause PTSD. Will the mole be found before the group is destroyed and will Freihof continue to injure or kill the members of the group? Another great addition to this series. I voluntarily read this book. The opinions expressed are solely my own.

This book is everything you want in a romantic suspense book. It has amazing characters you’ll fall in love with, a mystery that you want to solve, twists that will leave your jaw on the ground and a romance you want to succeed more than anything. We’ve met Lillian in previous Under Siege books and she’s one of my favourite heroines. Petite but can kick any man’s ass, she’s a valued member of the team. Her gender is not seen as a weakness, but a strength. But she has secrets from her past that nobody knows about, not even her boss, Steve Drackett. Secrets that have been slowly consuming her emotionally for years. Steve and Ren McClement call on Ren’s former colleague, Jace Eakin, to step in and help them out by becoming a temporary SWAT team member to help out with numbers. He also has a more covert job to do: try and find the mole who has been helping Damien Freihof take the Omega team out one by one. Jace and Lillian have a history – they’re former lovers. Jace knows some of Lillian’s secrets, but the most shocking one has been hidden from him for years. Their relationship ended with misconceptions on both their parts, and now the years have passed and they’re adults they agree they can work together with no issues. That proves harder than they think, however, when the spark that once burned between them ignites once more. It becomes clear that Freihof and his insider cohort are planning to blame Lillian for their actions, which places her in danger when they attempt to take her life. But it’s not only Lillian they’re targeting – a big conference being attended by hundreds of law enforcement officials is happening, and all clues point to this being the endgame. Lillian, Jace and the team have a tough assignment ahead: work out the identity of the mole and stop him and Freihof from killing hundreds of innocent people, and stay alive long enough to do it. Amidst all the madness, Lillian and Jace find out what they didn’t know about each other and have to decide if they want to resurrect their relationship or leave it in the past. I loved Lillian. Her resilience and determination not to be defined by the terrible thing that happened to her made her a wonderfully complex character. I also loved Jace. He was the perfect yin to Lillian’s yang. This book was a great read – I’d give it six stars for ticking all the boxes if I could!

This is an exciting tale of intrigue and suspense. The narrative is fast paced, action packed and engaging. It flows effortlessly and will definitely keep your attention from beginning to end. The characters are well-developed, strong, and interesting. The emotions are high and the romance steamy. The storyline of the series is intense and compelling, but each story can be read as a standalone. You may find it more enjoyable if the stories are read in succession as the characters are integrated into the whole series. I highly recommend you read this story and the series!
