I’ve been looking forward to Savvy’s story since reading the first two books in the Flashpoint series, and it certainly didn’t disappoint. Savvy is amazing – full of passion and compassion which is well-hidden under a stony exterior. Her courage is unbelievable, and terrifies Cal who has no lack of courage himself. Thrown together on an info-gathering op which turns into trying to save children and other people from tyrants, this story touches on some of the myriad problems faced by the people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo and other developing African nations. Well-researched, well-constructed and well-written, this book is another absolutely fantastic read that will keep you totally enthralled the whole way through. Highly recommended.

Savannah James is CIA and is not very well liked by the men of Special Ops. They don't know her exact title, but know she's a "spy". Cal Callahan and Savvy are like oil and water, constantly bickering while fantasizing about each other. Their chemistry is off the charts. When Savvy chooses Cal as her partner, he reluctantly accepts the assignment. In reality, he's been asked to spy on Savvy while posing as a antiquities dealer. As Cal and Savvy work together, they soon realize they're being set up. On the run in the Congo, Cal and Savvy discover corrupt government officials, Russian Mafia, and an American preacher. Can they trust each other enough to destroy evil? Mystery, intrigue, rainforests in the Congo, mini history lessons, scorching hot romance.....this novel has it ALL!!! I loved this novel. Rachel Grant's masterful writing grabs you from the first sentence. Make sure you have the afternoon free as you won't want to put this one down once you start reading. It's the third novel in the series and can be read as a stand-alone, but I encourage you to read the others as they will give you more insight into the "mystery of Savvy". I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.

I ALWAYS enjoy books by Rachel Grant. This book is a stand along; you don’t have to read the first 2 books in the series, but you’d be crazy not to! I enjoyed getting introduced to Savvy and Cal in the previous books and was anxious to read their story. It did not disappoint! The story sucks you in right from the beginning. Both characters are strong, but this time you get to see a vulnerable side to them as well. I can’t stress enough how great Rachel Grant’s books are. If you want action, romance, intrigue...they have it all. Loved this book and love the series! If you’re looking for a great read, this is it! I received this ARC from the publisher, which in no way impacts the content of my review.

Well-developed plot, steamy romance, and gripping suspense. This book, the third in the Flashpoint series features two characters already introduced to each in the previous book. Rachel Grant gives us the story of Savvy James and Cassius Callahan who have been hyperaware of each other for some time. They are both wary of each other, supposedly “hate” the other one, let alone trust each other, and they are teamed up to infiltrate the organization of Paul Lubanga, the biggest threat to the peace of Congo. She is to be Cal’s personal sex toy to steal data from Lubanga’s computer. But, before Savvy and Cal even leave the base on their mission, their mission changes to one of assassination. Too bad Savvy conveniently forgets to tell Cal that. This book, like its predecessors, hooks you in from the first few pages. In one word, it’s engrossing with so many layers. I couldn’t put it down. Neither will you!

Action, Sex, and Drama - great summer reading! This is the third book in the series. It’s not necessary to read the first two books, Tinderbox and Catalyst, but if you keep asking yourself, what happened (before) then you’d best back up and find out. It’s fun to read a series back-to-back because it keeps the story-line flowing and you become more attached to the personalities involved. Firestorm beefs up the action and I love having strong female heroes who are not helpless or silly. The characters are fun and exciting and you’ll want to see what comes next. Savvy goes head-to-head with the tough, sexy guys and you get a flash of power, explosive dynamics, and won’t be able to put the book down. This is one book that kept me up past midnight and Rachel Grant is a local author, which is always special.

Blimey. There's a lot going on here. First, the characters. Come on - tell me you haven't been waiting for Savvy and Cal's story. I know I have. She has been such an enigmatic character in the previous stories that it is impossible not to be curious. And how the author delivered on that build up. Yes, the politics covered in this are complex. The suspense element of the story is disturbing and unsettling. But they are woven seamlessly not only into the plot arc, but also into the character and relationship development between Savvy and Cal which makes this story hang together wonderfully. And for both of these characters, there is an unexpected vulnerability about them which makes their story even more endearing. And in case you're wondering? Yes. There is at least one explosion. I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader copy of this book.

Firestorm by Rachel Grant is the third book in her Flashpoint series and it is a fabulous way to wrap up this series although I think there is room for more books. Rachel brings us back to Camp Citron in Djibouti and this time the story is about Sergeant First Class Cassius Callahan and our favorite CIA agent, Savannah James. I was so glad to find out that we would get to experience their story. For those of you who haven’t read the first two books, Tinderbox and Catalyst, you will not be lost if you start here, but I highly recommend reading the first two books in order, so that you experience the richness of the story by understanding all of the characters, their stories and the location that it takes place in. We begin with Savannah, “Savvy”, meeting with Sergeant Callahan, “Cal”, and explaining to him why he is the perfect person to aid her on a covert CIA mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, with her as his “mistress”. With his fluency with the language to aid her in the mission to infiltrate a criminal organization, Savvy must work hard to convince Cal that he should work with her. But Savvy is not Cal’s favorite person, and it is an uphill battle to get him on board with the Black Op. He doesn’t trust her but there is a spark between them that they have both been trying to ignore and this just might be the one thing they need to find out if there is truly a chance for them. There is the mounting evidence of corruption in the mission, but who is the bad guy and who is telling the truth. There is the possibility Cal and Savvy aren’t telling the truth about who they are and what the mission is really about, but if you want to know the answer to that, you will have to read the book. I couldn’t put this book down. I HAD to know what was real and what was for the Op, but if you are like me and enjoy Military Romantic Suspense, then this is the book for you. It has it all and in exciting situations and with a powerful ending. I hope there is going to be more books after this but I think it was originally planned as a trilogy. Hopefully Rachel starts a new series with more of the guys from this unit.

Firestorm finally ignites the heat that has been burning between CIA covert operative Savannah James and Sergeant Cassius Callahan in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. CIA operatives are always bit of a pet peeve for me in romances.. They are shady, their lives are all about lying and completing the mission at any cost. Even though I was looking forward to finally getting Savvy's story I was a bit apprehensive going in as Cassius was such a good, honorable man to be paired up with a CIA operative. But from the first chapter my fears were put to rest as we get Savvy's backstory and see that even though she is a highly trained, deadly operative she also has vulnerabilities and traumatic past. Cassius was as great as I knew he'd be.. Such a good guy. Honorable yet also willing to do what it takes to keep Savvy safe. These two have to go undercover as lovers to prevent an overthrow of the current government in the Congo. As with every book in this series the author manages to show the reader both the beauty and the beast side of Africa. Another enjoyable and informative read. Can't wait to see what is next..
