Always ready, always deadly. That's the motto of the Atrati—a mercenary organization of black operatives who specialize in doing what no one else can.

A former sergeant in the Marine special forces, Kaden Marks dreams of one day having a family. But he's haunted by the deeds of his past and won't let anyone get close. Then a new mission comes his way. A fellow operative has had her cover blown—and it's up to Kaden's team to bring her out safely. What he doesn't realize is that the beautiful but stubborn Rachel Gannon has no intention of letting herself be rescued. . .

Rachel will come out only when she can promise adequate protection for her unwitting informant. As a former DEA agent, Rachel still blames herself for her sister's death—and is unwilling to let someone else get hurt because of her. But she hadn't counted on falling for Kaden Marks, and falling hard. Now she must convince him to help her bring down the enemy's entire organization—without risking the life of the man she's come to love. . .

I have been reading Lucy's books for years. Her addition of a male relationship really threw me! When I bought this book I expected the hot female, male story she always writes! I understand wanting to be "pc" but, I don't know of any woman who really wants to read about this kind of relationship. I am not being hateful, but it seems to me it should have been included in the synopsis. Lucy's last Goddard Project book didn't go out with a bang as I thought it would.

Hot, hot, hot! Exactly what I expect from a Lucy Monroe Book! A strong alpha male character, Kaden, and in this case, an equally strong female character, Rachel. This book contains it all....intrigue, danger, love and complex personal relationships. The main characters are very fleshed out including a complex past history. Lucy fleshes out the supporting characters very well also. All of the elements come together nicely. This story line is complex, believable and fun to read....Lucy did her research! Lucy Monroe is one of my favorite authors and this book does not disappoint!

As posted on The Smutty Kitty 3 out of 5 Licks I just realized this book is loosely connected to a series Lucy has that I have not read. I don't feel like that took away too much from this book. There were a few times when I was wondering if I was supposed to know more about some of these characters, but there was enough background info provided that it didn't really matter. I really liked the premise of the book and wanted to absolutely love it but sadly that just didn't happen. The previous relationship between Kaden and Rachel is sad and although she has clearly had a rough go the last several years she was borderline unlikable. She was whiny and she did have valid reasons for her feelings she went on and on about it and even though she said she was over it she clearly wasn't. Too much of the book was spent with her dwelling on and clinging to the past hurts. Because of that the ending felt a bit rushed to me. The sex was ok. It was described a bit clinically for me. I would have liked to see the author go for it, but it felt like she was trying to be careful not to get too dirty with the descriptions so it came across feeling a bit cold. There were a few political references that I don't feel added to the book. I felt more like the author was trying to share her political views rather than add to the story line. That is just my personal feeling. Politics makes me very uncomfortable and I tend to shy away from it. There is a second minor story line between Neil and Wyatt. I also found that the switch between team nicknames and real names went back and forth a lot instead of being consistent. All that said I liked the book but it wasn't something that I just couldn't put down. The idea is interesting and the feeling is there but a bit hidden. I would be interested in reading the previous books and seeing if they help bring a better understanding to this one and round out the series.

The book was great. Just what I expect from Lucy. I am sad to see so many homophobic people reviewing the book.the relationship between the two gay characters was sweet and not at all graphic. Very tamely written. And the complaints about her getting a political soapbox wqere completely overstated. Only two scenes had minor references to politics and fit in the storyline. When you are dealing with antiterrorism, politics is involved. Anyway I really liked the characters and how they worked thru their issues.

It was ok. 3.5 *Book source ~ Many thanks to Kensington for providing a review copy in exchange for an honest review. Rachel Gannon is a former DEA agent now working for the Goddard Project. While undercover in Egypt she is captured and tortured. Before she breaks though she is rescued by a team sent by Atrati, a covert ops group that is used by governments to do what can’t be done through standard channels. The leader of the group turns out to be Rachel’s first and only love, Kaden Marks. Now, Rachel not only has to deal with the aftermath of her torture, try to finish her mission and protect her unknowing informant, she has to deal with her past and the man who betrayed her.  I’ve enjoyed the Goddard Project books and this was no exception. Though it lags a bit in the middle it’s still a pretty decent spy story. Rachel is a tough one and I can see why she has lived her life the way she has. Kaden is an idiot though. I didn’t have much respect for him or how he treated Rachel. Granted they were young, but still…  Anyway, this type of storyline isn’t my favorite. I’m not a fan of the H/h who have had a prior relationship. And not only are Rachel and Kaden former loves, but a side story has two team members in a prior relationship. So I was double whammied in this book. Also, I’m not sure if it was because of this idiosyncrasy of mine or not, but I couldn’t really connect with the characters. The plot is decent, the dialogue is good and the characters are fine, so maybe it was just me. If you’ve read the other Goddard books and enjoyed them then you probably won’t have a problem with this one.

HEATSEEKER by Lucy Monroe is an interesting Contemporary Romance. #6 in the "Goddard Project". This was my first in this series, and I did not find it hard to keep up with or follow. "Always ready,always deadly" is the Atrati motto. They are a mercenary Black Operatives group who specializes in doing things others can not... "Heatseeker" is Rachel Gannon,a former DEA agent and Kadin Marks,a former Marine Sergeant's story. It is a rather fast paced story with plenty of action, suspense, and passion. Rachel blames herself for the death of her sister,and she does not want to be rescued,she wants to bring down an organization she also blames for her sister's death. But at what cost? Her cover has been blown. Kadin's mission is to get Rachel out alive,but what he doesn't know or was not informed is that Rachel doesn't want out..not yet. Can love help to mend both Kadin and Rachel? Both have deep wounds and dark pasts. An interesting read! Received for an honest review from the publisher.

Heatseeker by Lucy Monroe is a full out pulse pounding read. Atrati team leader Kadin Marks has never forgotten the girl he left behind. You can imagine his shock when the woman that is being held captive by terrorists calling out his name. Kadin will risk everything for a second chance at loving Rachel Gannon. Rachel Gannon former DEA agent was on a mission for the Goddard Project when it all went terribly wrong. Now she is being tormented by the enemy, the only thing keeping her sane is the sweet memories of her former love, Kadin Marks. She thinks she has gone over the edge when Kadin and his team are there to rescue her. Kadin and his team’s goal are to get Rachel out of country ASAP. But Rachel being her old stubborn self wants to safe the live of a young woman she has befriended. This throws a major wrench in the plans but Kadin lost Rachel’s love once and will not let that happen this time. Protecting Rachel proves to be a full time job and Kadin is the man to do it. Spending 24/7 with each other has past feelings rising to the surface both the pain and the loving. Will this newly revived relationship be able to survive when the enemy is drawling closer? Heatseeker is another exceptional story by Lucy Monroe. The chemistry between the main characters as well as the secondary ones is top notch. Even the repartee between the team will make you laugh and keep you on the edge. Any book by Lucy Monroe is a must read and a keeper.

Plenty of background and notable that real life interaction are not propaganda but reality. Yes, men can love men but that is not the sum total of the book. Complex relationships add to the story and I for one felt this book had plenty of twists and turns that kept my attention.

How to go from an autobuy author to never buy again. Way to go, Lucy Monroe, I've never been so disgusted by a book in my life. Not only do you intentionally dupe your romance reading audience by NOT telling them about the M/M relationship in this flaming turd of a book, you take cheap shots at an entire political party. Newsflash, Republicans buy books too. I like M/M romances, but not when they are used as a gimmick to push an author's political agenda instead of a heartfelt relationship. The author and the publisher should be ashamed charging money for this rubbish. Either write fiction or write political messages, but don't try to commingle them and pass them as a story. Boo Hiss.
