Opening line: "So which one of you am I going to have sex with?"

"Love this story! There's nothing like a strong sexy woman and a hot hunky guy to make a great couple! Exciting adventure, hot sex, and even a little comedy thrown in (Mikey is a hoot!) makes for a great story."
~ Fan review

Eric "LZ" O'Dwyer, a senior lieutenant stationed out of San Diego, is in command of his own helicopter detachment out of the HSM-75 Wolf Pack. Deployed off the coast of South America on a counterdrug operation, Eric jumps at the chance to take down a ruthless drug lord. But to do it, he'll have to join forces with badass DEA Agent Nicole Gamboa.

Infiltrating the drug lord's mansion is crucial to the mission, and to pull it off, Eric and Nicole have to play out an intimate scene together that leaves them both reeling. In the aftermath, Eric wants to foster something real with Nicole, but there is a secret part of Nicole's life that makes a relationship impossible.

The mission erupts again, and Nicole and Eric end up relying on each other in ways they'd never predicted. The stakes are raised to their highest when the drug lord gains the upper hand, and living or dying hinges on a final showdown between Nicole and her past...and whether Eric can get to her in time!

BEYOND THE CALL OF DUTY is a great read! Tracy Tappan is rapidly becoming a favorite. She has most obviously done her homework. Tracy uses authenic military language, very well developed sexy characters and a solid hot story line. Hmmm, what's missing? NOTHING! This book has a most unusual plot development, that is intense, hystercial and sure to keep you turning pages. Eric O'Dwyer “Landing Zone” and Nicole Gamboa DEA agent are featured in this book. I urge you to give this a try.

An intense well written new military series by Tracy Tappan that had me hooked from the first page. This book starts out with a fast intense pace using military terms to provide the reader with a stronger sense of correctness as opposed to make believe. This author spent a fair amount of time created a glossary to explain to us what the terms meant making for me a very enjoyable and learning read. Her characters were well developed and multifaceted. Eric and Nicole's interactions distinguish for me an element to the storyline outside the "too sweet and I know how this ends" in most books. I know the reader will love the resolution between their attitudes about each other. There are several secondary characters in this book and the one that stands out the most is Lieutenant Kyle “Mikey” Hammond. For me his attitude just rubbed me the wrong way but of course when that happens I always want to know his story so I look forward to learning more about him. Also Nicole's DEA partner, Ryan Aagaard, really caught my eye and it was amazing that the author was able to change my opinion of his in your face attitude by the end of the book. I recommend this book to people who like some meat in what they read. And guys you will like this read. I give it 5 STARS.

Another GREAT book by Tracy Tappan… This book was given to me to for an honest review. I loved BEYOND THE CALL OF DUTY! It has every element in the book from suspense to sexy romance. If you love uniforms, then you will love this story about a Navy Helicopter pilot and a beautiful DEA agent. The suspense kept me on the edge the entire book. I highly recommend this book plus Tracy’s Bloodline Series. You will not be disappointed in any of her books.

From the first line to the last, this book had me captured. Full of action-packed adventure, I couldn’t put the book down to sleep! Well written with intense drama lightened by humorous and realistic “personal” reactions, I felt I was right there with them. BEYOND THE CALL OF DUTY once again has me saying “If Tracy Tappan writes it, I will read it.” **I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review**

High octane read that will leave you breathless. Beyond the Call of Duty is real and gritty and oh so good. LZ is sweet and serious. Nicole just wants to be judged for what she can do not what she looks like. If you pick it up you won’t be able to put it down. Complimentary copy provided by author/publisher for an honest review.

An exceptional story full of scorching hot romance and pulse-pounding action! I have never read a hotter, more intense, almost-love scene EVER. As alluded to in the synopsis, Nicole and Eric have to play out an intimate scene as the cover for their real mission. Let me just say that the tension leading up to and the emotions surrounding that scene were!!! Tracy DEFINITELY knows how to write a sexy hero! Eric was absolutely perfect, with his good-looks, bravery and vulnerability. Nicole was very realistic in every way; an independent career-woman who was forced to hide her softer side in order to survive in a male-dominated industry. The imagery during the action scenes was absolutely phenomenal! I could clearly hear the helicopter blades rotating and feel the wind whipping. The amount of research Tracy put into this book is absolutely remarkable. While I am no expert, the acronyms and lingo she inserted into the story added a realistic element to it. The unfamiliar words and phrases were accompanied by a convenient hyperlink that takes the reader to a glossary. I loved this, because the definitions weren't awkwardly inserted into the story. (This book has a "prequel" titled Eightball Two-Three. While I feel this book can be read without reading Eightball, I do recommend reading it before this book!) All in all, this is one of those books that I stayed up waaaaay too late reading and could not put down because it's THAT good. I couldn't get enough of this book, and I can't wait to read more in this series!!!!!!! ***I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review***
