Book Description

Sarah Stevens finally has a life.
Instead of the same old life with no man around who is worth the energy, now she has three! One she loves but cannot have, one she can have but cannot love, and another who wants her and doesn’t care if she loves him. What’s a girl to do?

2.0 out of 5 stars A Disappointing Follow Up May 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved the first book. Sadly, the second one did not live up to my expectations. I missed the part where it said 135 pages, so this is a novella, not the full novel I expected. The good: I got sucked into the story again because I like the characters. The bad: If I hadn't read the first book, I wouldn't know who half the team was or why/what they were all about and what their roles were on the team. The good: Beautifully descriptive again. I felt like I was there. The bad: This book took a nose dive for me at what I thought was the half-way point, but turned out to be the end.

*Spoiler Alert - Read no further if you have issues with that.*
I was totally pissed off at the end of this for several reasons. I didn't buy the "ending" and the gift/will. It felt fake and seemed out of character for such a careful man. I don't mind fade to black, but after all the build up, I didn't feel anything when Sarah and Vince got together. In fact, I wasn't even sure if they did and had to reread this section several times. What a let down. I didn't need the details, but I did need the emotion and that was missing. Finally, and this really pissed me off, this is a cliff-hanger. It left me feeling like I'd been cheated. It was written for the sole purpose of making me buy the next book. Good thing it was only .99. This is NOT a novel like the first book was - this is a darn short novella. I liked the first book so much that I was an idiot and bought this book and book three at the same time - please see my review of it. I really was disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 blue ribbons from Romance Junkies August 3, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
Sarah Stevens has found her niche among her Special Forces team. She's transformed herself from a fat, insecure doormat to a knockout who's unafraid to take on the world - and any terrorist who happens to get in her way. The problem is underneath her kick butt exterior is still a woman longing to be loved and accepted.

There's a unique camaraderie between Sarah and the rest of her team. They spar, argue, tease, generally enjoy each other's company and trust one another with their lives. That sort of trust often takes months to develop yet she fits right in and has never regretted her decision to join forces with these dynamic men. She's never hesitated to put the team first but her deep feelings for team leader Vince could potentially lead to problems - especially if she can't put them aside and focus on the missions.

Building a life with Vince is nothing more than a dream so it only makes sense that Sarah date and enjoy being an attractive desirable woman - something she still has trouble believing sometimes. Unfortunately the date she's agreed to go on with her tutor's son turns out to be an unmitigated disaster - not because of the man who's actually quite personable and charming - but how was she to know that he's a major arms dealer? The road to love is never easy but when you're a member of the Special Forces is even more complicated. With their newest mission a whole new tricky situation develops when a blast from her past comes back into her life. Sarah may be a soldier, but she's a woman first and foremost and keeping her emotions from overriding her duty is a challenge she's fully capable of winning.

I've anxiously awaited this story since I first read the first book in the TASK FORCE 125 series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous August 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was afraid this book wasn't going to be as action packed as the first, but I was mistaken! This one is just as great as the first! The steamy chemistry between Sarah and Vince holds true! You even get the fun quirkyness of the other team members! I even liked the cliffhanger ending where Vince is captured so that you know there will be another book! As I was reading this book i could picture everything that was going on and I loved it! I was upset when Sarah got shot, but liked that it showed how human she really is. I was starting to think she's Wonder Woman! This is a great book to read!

More About the Author

Lisa Pietsch was born Lisa Thibault in Lewiston, Maine. Her father was a carpenter and her mother a homemaker. It was a modest, middle-class world for this 3rd generation American whose family still spoke a mish-mash of French and English at home. Her grandparents were the first of her family born in the U.S. while her Thibault and Gravel forefathers were counted among the early few French settlers in Quebec.

Lisa has enjoyed many adventures in her lifetime and is still racking up more. A significant amount of time in the United States Air Force yielded far more adventures than she'd ever imagined. Though the photo at right is in dress blues, Lisa preferred combat boots, BDUs and a bandana for headgear (see below). She was most happy carrying machine guns and heavy packs of ammunition. But that was a long time ago.

Lisa traded in her combat boots for wedded bliss and motherhood. Little did she know, "Wedded" and "Bliss" didn't always go together. The bliss part would come later though.

Escaping into an alternate future, Lisa wrote several novels based around the character Sarah Stevens. The were well received and her experience in promoting them gave her the confidence to seek a life of her own as a novelist and marketing consultant.

She achieved considerable success in bringing in results for her clients but wondered if she might prefer to write full time. Finally, circumstances allowed her to explore it and she discovered that her passion really was in marketing but would continue to write on the side.

With such a strong writing and marketing background, publishing was a natural next step. She partnered with John Knotts, a fellow veteran, on a local startup called SAXtreme. SAXtreme was a lifestyle magazine for San Antonio, Texas, that featured exercise, outdoor and healthy living choices for the greater San Antonio area. SAXtreme enjoyed strong growth and great success in its first six months. Unfortunately, with Knotts taking on a new corporate position, moving to a new home and marrying - as well as Lisa also moving to a new home and taking on more marketing clients, SAXtreme was set aside.

New adventures, new skills, and finally buying a home of her own helped Lisa to find a direction that was the perfect for her. She partnered with Alexander Perez and Mike Morales of Tequila Aficionado. They had the knowledge of tequila, tequila culture and its community and she brought her passion for fine tequilas and social media and digital marketing skills. Tequila Aficionado embarked on a new direction with Mike Morales as CEO and Lisa as COO. Tequila Aficionado Media found great success as it realized it's 15th year as a direct to consumer multimedia publication for agave spirits.

Then something else happened. Lisa and Mike discovered they were just as good together personally as they were professionally.

Lisa now enjoys her work as COO of Tequila Aficionado Media as well as a Digital Media Marketing Consultant. In her marketing work, Lisa creates websites, interlinks clients' social networks in a delightful web of efficiency, advises them on marketing strategies for their books and brands, and much more. She also writes extensively for Yahoo in the area of Author Marketing while unschooling her two amazing boys.

Her passion for foreign languages and fine tequilas and mezcals has launched her into a deeper study of the Spanish language which consists of binge-watching telenovelas at home whenever possible. This inevitably leads to inspiration for more fiction writing so don't expect to stop seeing her books at Amazon.com anytime soon she's still writing!

Lisa currently lives in San Antonio, Texas, with her darling companion Mike, sons Teddy & Markie, two cats, and a three-legged dog.

She expects her next adventure to involve an extended stay in Mexico very soon. (For research, of course!)
