My Rating & Thoughts:    

This is a 3 book novella collection. Each individual story includes characters from other books by these authors.

On the Run – Lynette Eason

Daria is an FBI analyst who is injured when someone attacks her at her home, she ends up at Rykers hospital for treatment. While there someone tries to kidnap her. She goes on the run and Ryker insists on going with her to help her. There was a lot of action and gripping moments that had me on the edge of my seat. I enjoyed the reappearance of characters from previous books.

Favourite Quote: 
“What someone meant for evil, God took and turned it into something good.”

Deadly Objective – Lynn H. Blackburn

Emily is a physical therapist to the vice president’s 16 year old son, Mason. Liam is a secret service agent assigned to Mason. We quickly learn that Emily and Liam have become friends somewhat over various encounters due to their mutual work with Mason. When an attack happens at the VP’s house everyone is taken to a safe house. It is then decided that Mason would be best protected by going on the camping trip previously planned with Liam, Emily gets roped into going along. I did not know any of these characters prior reading this story but really enjoyed getting to know Liam and Emily. Both Liam and Emily are readers and they have a very entertaining conversation with Mason that left me laughing and agreeing with Emily’s perspective. I enjoyed following the budding romance as it felt realistic. This was my favourite of the collection.

Caught in the Crosshairs – Natalie Walters

CIA officer Claudia gets summoned to a house, upon arriving she walks into a crime scene and quickly becomes a suspect. CIA officer Ari is brought in to investigate and quickly determines that Claudia is the target. Neither trust each other, but can they work together to figure out what is happening and why. I had trouble following who all the individuals were and what the connection was. The romance developed way too quickly for my liking (within 48 hours of meeting.) I haven’t read anything by Ms. Walters before so I had not connection to any of these characters.

(I received an ARC of this book from Revell through NetGalley; opinions expressed 
in this review are my honest opinion and completely my own.)
