AEGIS: an elite team of ex-military men working under the radar of most governments. If you have a problem no one else can handle, they can help.

A former SEAL and Black Ops specialist who left the CIA, Nick Donovan gave up a life on the edge to work in the private sector. But that didn't stop his enemies from coming after him—or his family. In a case of mistaken identity, a drug cartel kidnaps his sister-in-law's best friend … a woman from Nick's past.

One minute Jennifer Grayson is housesitting and the next she's abducted to a foreign brothel. Jennifer is planning her escape when her first "customer" arrives. Nick, the man who broke her heart years ago, has come to her rescue. Now, as they race for their lives, passion for each other reignites and old secrets resurface. Can Nick keep the woman he loves safe against an enemy with a personal vendetta?

About the Author

Kay Thomas didn't grow up burning to be a writer. She wasn't even much of a reader until fourth grade. That's when her sister read The Black Stallion aloud to her. For hours Kay was enthralled—shipwrecked and riding an untamed horse across desert sand. Then tragedy struck. Her sister lost her voice. But Kay couldn't wait to hear what happened in the story—so she picked up that book, finished reading it herself, and went in search of more adventures at the local library.

Today Kay lives in Dallas with her husband, two children, and a shockingly spoiled Boston terrier. Her award-winning novels have been published internationally.

She is extremely annoying and her behavior unbelievably rediculous on the heels of what happened to her. After the first 100 pages or so, this story is just not making logical sense.

226 pages of suspense, friendship, and romance. A very good book.

Was not what I was looking for, but for a romance with bits of mystery, it was okay. For an "exciting romance" book, this would suit many different people.

Nick Donovan just escaped death and now he needs to head back into the thick of it to save the only woman he’s ever loved. Jennifer Grayson was house sitting when she was taken and smuggled into Mexico. She’s being used as a ransom but that doesn’t mean they won’t use her body while they wait for her to be saved. Step in Nick Donovan the only man Jennifer ever truly loved and truly hurt. She left him and now thrown back together Jennifer doesn’t know how to act or if she should tell him what happened all those years ago. Jen and Nick are traveling around the world trying to figure out who is setting them up to die and why. Meanwhile trying to figure out if what they had all those years ago was truly a summer fling or much more. Personal Target was actually a pretty fascinating book. I wasn’t sure I was going to like it but Kay Thomas actually did an amazing job at creating a great story. Personal Target follows both Jennifer and Nick who both get POV’s in this book which is always exciting for me. Anyway Jennifer tries to stand on her own two feel in her career but someone has a hit out on her and has already tried to kill her a couple times. Going from a cheated on Archeologist to being kidnapped and almost murdered is a lot to take in for Jennifer and then we throw in Nick who is temptation on a stick. Yup this was definitely an awesome book. Nick has a lot of training with the service, the CIA, and more. He lost his parents and all he had was Jennifer before she cut off all contact. Being thrown back together with her seems like a dream come true but given that they’re targets for the drug and sex cartel and the secret Jennifer reveals to him about all those years ago definitely leaves something to be desired for the situation. Personal Target is action packed in all senses. Nick and Jennifer action (you know what I mean wink wink), Nick being a total bada** taking down bad guys, almost dying numerous times, and helping Jennifer stay alive and out of the way. All he wants is his family safe but that’s not an option anymore. Personal Target definitely kept me on my toes. I never knew what was going to happen next and I loved it. The suspense was high and the tension even more so. So many people died and it was tragic especially the people the characters bonded with. This book was definitely a sizzling hard-core action novel. I loved every page and couldn’t put this book down for a minute.  I fell in love with Kay Thomas’ writing right away as well as with the characters. Both Nick and Jen were strong problem solving characters I seriously enjoyed a whole bunch. Can’t wait to see what happens next.

Personal Target, was ever bit as good or better than Hard Target. Nick travels to some really interesting places, trying to protect Jennifer in the process. I was riveted from the beginning. Kay Thomas has hit the deck running with this one. Check it out, great read!

4.7 Star Review - Personal Target (Elite Ops # 2) I recommend this book. I enjoyed this book by Kay. This book includes passion, laughs, heartache, kidnappings, murder, betrayal, explosions, car accidents and a few gun fights. Everything you need for a great suspense story!! Jennifer Grayson is mistaken for her friend and kidnapped. They take her to Mexico and put her to work in a brothel. As she is trying to figure out a way to escape she is told she has a customer. Nick Donovan is trying to heal and keep his family safe. He get a photo of Jennifer and realizes that they took her and think she is his sister-in-law. He has to save her but first he needs to find out where she is. Once he finds her he needs to get her out before she has to turn tricks. He poses as a customer and escapes with her. Now they are on the run. Why was she really taken? Who are they after her or him? Can they stay one step ahead of the people who are after one of them or will they get caught? Grab the book to find out. Lots of twists and turns in this story. Love Nick he is sweet and totally alpha. Jennifer is strong and stubborn. They fit together nicely. Love Kay's writing style. She knows how to keep a reader invested in the story. You never know what is going to happen next which keeps you turning the pages until the book is finished!!
