It’s been a little while since I have spent time with the FBI’s Hostage Rescue Team Boys, but it was like coming home when I read Avenged by Kaylea Cross this past week. I was reunited with Schroeder, Cruz, Vance, Tuck, DeLuca and the rest of the gang. I was introduced to a very strong heroine, Taya. Of course the heroines have to be strong and tough to put up with the likes of the HRT boys. Avenged threw me for a loop. Cross writes a great story that isn’t just repeated book after book in the HRT series. Each character has their own issues to deal with on the team and while finding their true love. In this story, I expected certain things that didn’t happen and other things happened I didn’t expect. Kinda vague, huh? Well, I don’t want to spoil it for you, but just know that even on book 5, I am still loving the twists and turns and original stories Cross is coming up with. Nathan (or any of his nicknames “Doc”, “Dr. Feelgood”, Nate, Schroeder), is a very conflicted guy on a downward spiral into a dark abyss. His teammates are starting to notice. His job is at risk. He has to pull his life together and learn how to heal from his past. Enter Taya. She is a kickass heroine even if she doesn’t feel like it. She and Nathan met in a horrible situation when he was a PJ in the Air Force and he rescued her from a terrorist after nine months of being held hostage. One difference between how they handled that situation is that she sought help, healed and moved on from the terrible experience. When the two of them are together they are so much better than when they are alone. They bring out the best in each other. There is so much respect and trust for one another. It poured out of them. I loved watching the chemistry between them and the love grow even stronger. Cross wrote Nate and Taya’s love story so well. It truly fit their personalities and the story quite well. Avenged is quite a page turner and was difficult to put down. If you are looking for a fast paced romantic suspense with powerful emotion that will have you clinging to the book (or your ereader) wondering what will happened next, give Avenged a try. While it is fun to read the series in order, they can be read as stand alones as each plot is unique to the book.

Slow and boring. I was hoping for a great story, especially after Matt and Briar, but was disappointed. It would have made more sense if she had been a slave rather than a captured "wife" in Afganistan. I just finished the book and can't even remember her name. Won't read again.

Kaylea Cross' military books are some of my all time favorite, I love her style of writing, the rhythm of the stories, and how they flow. The characters are strong, capable, and fierce, yes, the female leads, and the heroes are completely swoon worthy. In Avenged, Nathan isn't doing well. He is part of the elite HRT team, performing his job, but his mental state of mind is crumbling. The nightmares are constant, he is sleep deprived, and to feel something, anything, he is using one night stands for sex. If he can't pull himself together, he will soon lose all that is important to him, his job and team mates. And then he meets Taya again. The connection between them is amazing. It was formed under the most difficult times, but it is real, honest, and pure. Taya is a true survivor, she worked with herself, until the nightmare of her past was just that, in her past. I admire her character, and all that she stood for, was capable of. Taya presence alone, calms Nathan and his nightmares. There's a scene in the book, where Taya helps Nathan to start to deal with the mental wounds, let's him cry in his arms, face his demons, grieve for his friend, and feel her acceptance of him as he is. A very powerful scene! The romance between Nathan and Taya is hot, passionate, and sweet. Taya surely brings the best out of Nathan, his tender, caring, protective, romantic side, as he is willing to do anything and give up everything, to take care of Taya. The fear and danger are constantly present, but the true action comes at the end of the story, and it is brutal, bloody, and deadly. The characters are deep and complex, very likable, easy to understand. The action and danger elements were intense, and the events from five years ago, when Nathan and Taya met are lived through flashbacks, and nightmares. Overall Avenged is a great romantic suspense, but I admit, not my favorite in the series. And couple grammar mistakes in the story really took me by surprise. ~ Four Spoons with a teaspoon on the side
