I picked up the first Linear Tactical book a month ago and was very glad I did. It was excellent. I've now read all of Janie's books, and enjoyed every one. This was the last series and last book. All of her Omega Sector books are very well written individually and tied together to make an in depth picture of the men and women who make up the divisions of Omega Sector, with a lot of action, well drawn villains and a believable romance. I highly recommend all of her books.

It all comes back to bite him! When terrorist Damien Freihof began his rampage on the Omega Sector unit, he claimed it was revenge for them killing his wife, but circumstances lead them to believe she's not really dead, and that she might be just the bait they need to bring this madman out of the woodwork so they can take him down once and for all. This has been an exciting series with lots of twist and turns, and this book was a fairly fitting end to it all. Omega Sector founder Ren McClement will stop at nothing to bring down the terrorist who has been attacking his group of highly trained law enforcement officers for the last few months. Freihof has killed, injured and tormented more than anyone can stand, so Ren's determined to bring his reign of terror to an end once and for all ... even if he has to use an innocent party to do it! Natalie Anderson has been on the run from her demented husband for several years now, and she should know better than to trust a man she runs across, but Ren seems so sincere. Little does she know that he knows exactly who she is and who she's running from ... he just believes she's an accomplice instead of a victim! As he comes to know the real person, Ren wishes there was another way out of this mess, but he has no other option than to reveal that she's still alive ... will it end her life for real this time, or will he be able to save the day and keep her as well as the rest of his team safe from Damien Freihof?

4.5 This is a conclusion to a fantastic series, but you absolutely can read this as a stand alone. I personally recommend treating your self, and get the whole series, start with book1 and enjoy! Natalie rocked my socks with her strength, her determination and her tenacity. Rem I wanted to smack of course, specially at the beginning, but HEA was waiting for me. Intrigue, suspense, romance all wrapped up in a glorious book. I received a free copy and voluntarily leave this review. All thoughts, opinions and misspelling are my own :)

Another fantastic story, and sadly, the final Omega Sector novel. Natalie is a fabulous heroine, strong and vulnerable, full of contradictions. Ren is a very self-confident hero who becomes more sympathetic and likeable as the story evolves. It’s lovely that so many previous characters are part of the story. The plot is fast-paced and keeps you interested and involved, and, as with all the books in the series, it is extremely well-written. The final part of the story especially is very emotional, and I’m not sure if my tears were for Natalie or for the ending of an era. And with the conclusion of the Omega Sector series covering 16 books plus one novella, I feel it’s apropos to comment on the series as a whole. There was not one story that I didn’t thoroughly enjoy, that I would willingly put down in the middle of reading. There was not one hero or heroine whom I didn’t like, to whom I couldn’t relate. And whilst I have my favourites, they ALL feel like friends, like family. Even better is the fact that they are all different, all individuals. I know who’s likely to make a joke in a tense situation. I know who bakes the best muffins. I know who to go to if I want my apartment repaired (or demolished, as the case may be). Every book is well-written, every book grabs you and won’t let go. I have read every one of the 16 books at least twice, and some of them more than a dozen times. They are just as enjoyable, just as enthralling every time you read them. If you haven’t yet discovered all 16 books in this series, I urge you to do so. You won’t be disappointed. And Janie Crouch, I take my hat off to you. You have written a marvellous series jam-packed with characters and stories that will continue to delight me through many subsequent re-readings. My heartfelt thanks.

An ardent love story and an explosive finale to the riveting romantic suspense series that has kept the readers on the edge fearing for the protagonists' lives, while swooning over the ardent romance. Natalie's survival instinct and strength to withstand the horrible abuse her ex-husband Freihoff, the searched after killer and domestic terrorist, done on her made me admire her while her destiny broke my heart. To think that she was so whole, so strong, still standing and taking care of herself after everything she went through is nothing sort of amazing. One of the things that I truly admire about Janie Crouch's writing is the way she builds her heroines to be tough, capable, smart, independent women, with an inner strength that carries them through the worst possible scenarios life can put them in. Ren had a bit worried at the beginning, I admit, but I warmed up to him soon, when I witnessed his kindness, his good heart, his struggles with honesty while working undercover, and his aim to protect and guard Natalie with everything in him. The sweet and luscious love story developing between Ren and Natalie is the center of the story, capturing my heart, making me sigh because of the tangible, strong connection between them, the way they get each other, and oddly enough, the trust that was building between despite the circumstances. The secrets Ren had to keep to accomplish his mission, to stop the terrorist attack yet keep Natalie safe while getting her co-operation gave the story intensity and put the whole situation on a frail edge that could crumble at any moment. The wild nature surrounding them while on hiding put their endurance on a test, yet it is the threat from the fellow humans that can end their lives before they have a chance to explore the passion and feelings flaming between them. The smoothly flowing and well-written story pulls you in, brings all the feels into the surface, and makes you fall in love with the characters. I loved how the whole Omega team was present in the tale while the suspense was fierce, each doing what they are the best at. They pulled Natalie into their fold and brought me in tears with the support and kindness they showed her. With the delightfully tender and gentle love story for the founder of the Omega sector, the agency bit farewell to the readers, with the final showdown to capture the terrorist that has plagued them for so long, tortured themselves and their loved ones and even killed their own. Now I want to go and binge-read the whole series again... ~ Four Spoons with a teaspoon on the side

This is a truly engaging, suspenseful and intriguing romance. From the start you will become so invested in the lives of the characters, you will feel the anxiety of the suspense and the anticipation of the heartache yet to come. Natalie and Ren will weave themselves into your heart, and you won’t want to let them go. The story is fast paced, action packed and will keep your attention from beginning to end. The characters are well-developed, the emotions are high, and the passion is steamy. The storyline of the series is intense and compelling, but each story can be read as a standalone. You may find it more enjoyable if the stories are read in succession as the characters are integrated into the whole series. I highly recommend you read this story and the series!

I have enjoyed the previous stories of this series and have to say this one is my favorite . Damien Freihof, is a terrorist that has been after after the Omega Sector when his wife is killed during a bank robbery. Now it seems that she is alive. But is she working for him? Ren McClement, the creator of Omega Sector, a group of elite law enforcement men and women , decides they need to find her . Since the group is short of members, he takes that assignment. Little did he know that both their lives would change forever. The story is filled with suspense, good guys, an evil man, lies, near death experiences, and romance. But trust is tested and things don’t run smoothly. If you have enjoyed the previous books, you will get a chance to revisit the lives of the previous characters. Problems will be resolved and loose ends will be tied. A great story not to be missed. I voluntarily read this book. The opinions expressed are solely my own.

In the Lawman’s Protection is the sixteenth and final book in the richly written and enticing Omega Sector saga, and while I’m excited to read Janie’s forthcoming books, I’m sad this series is over. Damien Freihof, the sociopath who has been hellbent on taking down the Omega team for what he perceived to be their part in the death of his wife, Natalie, is continuing on with his mission to destroy the team and their loved ones. After finding out by accident that Natalie Anderson Freihof is still alive, Ren McClement, the man responsible for the Omega Sector’s formation, is determined to finally stop this criminal once and for all. He’s firmly convinced that Natalie is aiding and abetting her ex, so when they track her down in California, Ren handles it personally. He’s going to do whatever it takes to get Natalie to help them stop Freihof and finally capture him. After following her for days, the Omega team makes their move and sends Natalie running right into their arms. After befriending her on a train, Ren and the team go to extreme lengths to arrange it so that he and Natalie are ‘trapped’ in a cabin in the woods. Ren is prepared to do whatever he has to do to convince Natalie to give up Freihof’s location, but after arriving at the cabin and spending time with her, Ren realises something he’d never really considered – Natalie is a victim of Freihof’s, too, and she’s been on the run for six long years. Ren is drawn to Natalie in ways he never imagined he would be – his world is dark and full of evil, and Natalie represents the good and the light. He doesn’t want to involve her in his shadowy world, but she lived there for years during her marriage to Freihof, a controlling and sadistic man who abused her physically, mentally and emotionally. Natalie is a survivor, and her spirit shines... and Ren finds himself unable to resist her. He’s on a deadline to bring Natalie in and gain her co-operation, but a run in with a mountain lion throws everything off and he’s not able to tell Natalie who he really is before time is up. Once she finds out, she’s understandably withdrawn, but determined to stop her ex at all costs – even if it means risking her own life. Freihof’s final act of terror towards Natalie is both horrific and a testament to the strength of a woman who refuses to give in to evil. It will make your heart skip a terrified beat or two, but the bad guy FINALLY gets what he deserves and true love conquers all, which is exactly how I love my romance books to end. A triumphant conclusion to what has been a stunning series.

We travel every summer by car for 7.5 hours each way. I picked up this book to read for a little while on the way home. I usually don’t read in the car because I get dizzy. I was so involved with this book I didn’t even notice how long the ride was. I didn’t notice the traffic. I didn’t even notice my husband’s driving. Lol this book grabbed me from the first page and didn’t let me go!! I read the entire book all at once without even asking for pit stops!! Nathalie has been running and hiding for years. She can’t let her husband know she is alive! If he finds out he will never let her go. She will either be his prisoner or his victim. She makes a tiny mistake that leads to her life changing forever. Warren works with Omega Sector. He wants her husband caught at any cost. He is even willing to use Natalie as bait to get him out in the open. Her husband “Damien Freihof” has been after Omega Sector for 6 years ever since they “killed “ his first wife. As this story unfolds you will be so absorbed you may forget to go to bed. This is the most exciting ending to a book series I have ever read! This book will be a favorite of mine for years to come! I have been moved by this story more than any other book. My new favorite book!! I felt like I was on a roller coaster and watching the best movie ever!
