4.0 out of 5 stars Short, fast paced and suspense filled romance, April 15, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Catch Me if You Can: An ALPHA Squadron Novel (Kindle Edition)
After devouring Dirty Little Secrets, I decided to try out more of Liliana Hart's short novels. I say short because they're all around 200 pages. She is clearly a diverse writer and I enjoyed this romantic suspense. It is very likely this is a first in a series surrounding the lives of a team of ex-marines and the introduction to these honorable and loyal friends is a great start.

Ex-marine sniper, ex-FBI, and current security specialist, Shane Quincy has trouble sleeping. After the events of a take down gone terribly wrong, he lost his beloved wife. He runs in the middle of the night to shake the nightmares off, but after his latest run, he returns to find his apartment building on fire. There's only one other occupant on the third floor where the source of the flames are and he runs to her rooms to find Rachel Valentine handcuffed to her bed. He ends up rescuing Rachel, but as she tries to evade his questions, he knows she's in over her head. It turns out that she is the only living daughter of a mob boss who's recently disappeared and her uncle is gunning to have her killed. Having been with the FBI, Shane is all too familiar with her family and what they're capable of and helps her in her mission to obtain evidence left to her by her father and turn state's witness to take out some very powerful and dangerous families.

The action is pretty non stop with a good mix of bonding and sharing for the amount of time these two are together. The romance is not as steamy as I prefer but it works and the secondary characters are interesting and dynamic. Romantic suspense in general is pretty formulaic so you have a sense of what's going to happen, but this particular journey is not without its twists and turns. I would definitely read future installments if there is a price adjustment in the future. I have to say I'm rather surprised that this book was $3.99 for a 2650 location kindle book (The rest of the pages are previews to her other books). It really should be .99 or 1.99 at the most.

I thought it was a great read, however since the author lives in Texas I would have expected her to know there are several large cities between Dallas and Tulsa. There is a huge casino resort just inside the Oklahoma state line on I-35. It made me wonder if she has ever crossed the Red River.
