Flash of Fury by Lea Griffith is the 1st book in her new Endgame Ops series. This is the first book I have read by Griffith and after reading Flash of Fury, it will not be my last. We meet our hero King McNally early on when he and his Endgame Ops team was ambushed on a mission that was an obvious leak. Three members of his team were lost. This leaves him determined to find out who was the betrayer, and to find and kill the terrorists, who were part of the original assignment. King trusts no one, especially the CIA, whom he feels is part of the betrayal. When he receives word that a courier for the terrorist will be on a plane, he makes sure he is on it. Allie Redding, our heroine, is a Peace Corps volunteer, and also the daughter of the CIA Director. Allie, who tries to stay out of the limelight that her father is in, aboards the plane to take her home. The plane is hijacked by those who want to kidnap Allie, but King manages to save her life and both are now running for their lives. Even though he saves her, King does not trust Allie, thinking she is a courier for the terrorists. What follows is an ultra exciting, tense, action filled story that will have both Allie and King constantly being in danger by the various attacks. King realizes that Allie has been innocently set up to be used against her father. His goal besides killing the evil villain, is to get Allie home safely. Along the way, they both will learn to trust each other, and at the same time fall in love. Each of them have their own issues; King with a father who abused him; and Allie losing her mother at an early age, and trying to stay clear of her father’s CIA responsibilities. Though in time, Allie knows she wants to stay with King after this is over; but he stubbornly tells her there is no future, as it is too dangerous for her to be with him. I loved Allie and King together; they made a great couple, and their sexual chemistry was off the wall scorching hot. King’s Endgame ops team were great, and I cannot wait to see their story in future books. The edge of your seat action was very tense, keeping us emotionally invested as we worried if our heroes would survive. Once you start this book, you will not be able to put it down. Flash of Fury was a sensational start to this new series. This story was fast paced, action filled, suspenseful, and filled with intrigue, betrayal, and romance with a fabulous sexy couple. There are so many plots and twists along the way, and the ending was not only exciting, but also exhilarating. There is so much more to come in the Endgame Ops series that I cannot wait to see what Lea Griffith has in store for us. This is a must read for those of you who love romance suspense.
Full of suspense, action and romance as Kingston and Allie find their way and safety. Good first book and looking forward to the rest in the series. Ebook from Netgalley and publishers with thanks. Opinions are entirely my own.
'Flash of Fury' by Lea Griffith is book One in the "Endgame Ops" series. This is the story of Kingston McNally and Allie Redding. This is my first book by Ms. Griffith but after reading this book I plan on looking for more of her books. This has an exciting story that starts off reliving what had happened to King and his team. Then we move toward King on an airplane looking to follow Allie but their plane is quickly hijacked with people looking for Allie. King thinks Allie can lead him to them man he feels is responsible for the tragic loss of his teammates. Allie travels as a Peace Corps volunteer to give other care when they don't have access to medical help. In addition, Allie has her own secrets and is slow to come forward with them at first....but King will get those secrets. If you love a action packed, exciting, along with a good military man than this book is for you. *A Book Obsessed Chicks Review Team Selection
WOW!!!! So good. Full review closer to release date. Totally riveting!!! I really love this freaking book. I simply could not put it down. This book captivated my attention and I read every word and felt every emotion. I love when an author exudes those feelings in their work and it leaks into me. Wonderful! We have Allie and King and what an awesome couple. Allison is full of humor and just a few pages in, I was rolling with laughter. Her and King have some great laugh out loud moments. I love Allie with all my heart. Her humor is infectious, her bravery commendable and the love she has for King everlasting. King is on the warpath as leader of Endgame Ops, after members of his team are killed in an op over a year ago. This leads him to Allison Redding, however everything is not as it seems. As with most government factions, CIA in this case, what you think is happening is covered in so much subterfuge, lies and double cross, you can't even trust your best friend. The non-stop action, live action scenes that fluttered through my mind like a movie, are riveting. I am entranced with the secondary characters which make up the family of Endgame Ops. I am soooooooo looking forward to the next book in the series, which we are given a small glimpse of at the end. Poor Jude. Ms. Griffith has become a must read author for me. Bravo Ms. Griffith on a job well done!!!
