The third book in the series and another great read. Team joker Liam is surprisingly serious throughout most of this story, and Vanessa is a caring and sympathetic heroine. I also enjoyed looking up and learning about the location – the Outer Banks in North Carolina. Great plot, great characters (both main and secondary) and a really well-written story.

Liam and Vanessa had been young and in love. Liam knew Vanessa's parents didn't approve of him, but they were going to get married and then tell her parents. When she didn't show up to meet him, he went to her house and her father said she never wanted to see him again. He knew he wasn't good enough for the pampered, rich girl, so he walked away. Eight years later, Vanessa need help and the only person that could help her probably wouldn't even talk to her. When Vanessa found a young girl from a foreign country that had been kidnapped, she knew she needed a lot of help. There were other girls that needed to be rescued and she couldn't go to local authorities because it's possible they are the people who kidnapped the girls. Liam is sure he will get Vanessa out of his system once he helps her. Then he can walk away. Maybe.

Liam Goetz never figured he would ever hear from his ex-fiancé Vanessa Epperson again. Eight years ago, he chose her but Vanessa choose her life as the pampered daughter of a rich man. When Vanessa calls for his help in a human trafficking case, Liam decides to do what he can. Returning means facing his past and Vanessa. He finds her to be completely different and as they work together to save hostages and capture the ones responsible, Liam learns that he did not have all the facts all those years ago. He is forced to reassess everything. Interfering never works out as expected. That is one lesson we can all learn. Liam loved Vanessa and thought he had buried those feelings. He found he had not. Vanessa changed her whole life eight years ago. She is kind, caring and wants to help. Together they find they must stop the perpetrators. Janie Crouch has once again penned a tale guaranteed to keep us up reading. With non-stop action, incredible romance and realistic, loveable hero and heroine, you cannot go wrong with Armored Attraction. Place Janie on your auto buy list while you are at it. Love suspense with your romance, her books will do it for.

The newest release by Janie Crouch has to be her best book yet! i just loved this book. I don't ever like to spoil books for readers but this one kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time! I am really enjoying this series and I can't wait to read the next one! Liam and Vanessa make the best couple! I loved how they interacted. I also love how Janie doesn't make her females weak and cowering. Vanessa is a strong independent woman. Liam is a tough guy who is both intelligent and kind. I highly recommend this book!

In one word, this story is "intense" and takes you on a roller coaster of emotion with characters that pull at your heart strings. I stayed up way to late reading it, because I just had to see what happened next. Danger, second chances, emotional trauma, hot romance, intrigue, and even'll find it all in this book. It only took Liam one phone call from his ex-fiance saying she needed help for him to show up at her door. As part of a special task force he had the skills needed and she knew she could trust him. The only problem was that they shared a past full of love, loss, pain, and longing that threatened to ignite at every touch. If they could stay alive, they just might have a chance to right the wrongs from 8 years in the past. Loved reading this story and looking forward the next one in the Omega Sector series.

From the start of the story, my heart and mind was brought about, and involved in the story. This tale goes deeper into the dark emotions of sorrow and loss, it squeezed my heart with inhumane treatment of the children, the victims of the human trafficking, and soared with joy for the second chance romance, and the new beginnings. The story is well crafted, so the suspense, action, and development of the romance, all are intertwined into each other, giving the story a fast paced, enjoyable rhythm, that is hard to put down. Liam, the cheerful flirt from the Omega Sector, who for years had flirted and played the field, 'fake it till you make it' style. He had pretended the part for so long 'he nearly believed the press release of his own actions himself' was for me, one of the key moments, giving more insights to him, and his player persona. There obviously was more to him than meets the assumed behavior. And as soon as he met Vanessa, he proves himself. He is caring, protective, tender, and understanding. He is willing to do anything to her and the girls safe, and survive the impending threat. The events from the past has shaped Vanessa's life more than expected. The loss, the heartache from eight years ago, are still present, still burning. With help of Liam, she is able to build a bridge to the past, rectify her relationship with her parents, and move on. To see and understand all the nuances of the developing characters, events and relationships, I hung on to every word. The danger, the constant fear, the uncertainty of the immediate future, kept my mind on the edge. The jubilee of the new chances in life, love, passion, and future, brought joy and delight to my heart. The team work of the Omega Sector is commendable, and the loyalty to each other admirable. The story brings forward the constant threat of human trafficking in our world suffers from, too often forgotten and overlooked. And brings forward the message of redemption, the possibility of forgiveness, and the chance for new beginnings and brighter future, while underling the importance of communication, honesty, and willingness to fight for what you want in life ~ Five Spoons

Janie Crouch takes us on an action packed adventure in Book #3 in her Omega Sector: Critical Response series! I was drawn in immediately and didn't want to put it down. Filled with lost love, lost dreams and family angst , we go along for the ride to see if they can solve this crucial mystery that they have landed in, and maybe work through their past mistakes at the same time. Vanessa Epperson is minding her own business, simply out for a walk one day when she stumbles across a mind boggling situation that she doesn't know how to handle. When it comes to her attention that local authorities might not be a safe resource to help her, she contacts the only person she can think of that might have higher contacts that could look into whether she has discovered a human trafficking ring. Liam Goetz receives a blast from the past when he gets a voice mail forwarded to him from Vanessa. He hasn't heard her voice in over 8 years ... not since she broke his heart and ended their engagement. He isn't eager to see her, but he can't turn his back on the opportunity to get some closure on how it all ended at the same time as he sees what the situation she needs help with is. When Liam arrives into town and they set out to solve the mystery going on around them, it opens up the door for them to air out their past hurts and share some secrets with each other. Will they be able to forgive the past and move forward, or will they choose to appreciate ending on a better note and move on with their separate lives?
