The action is realistic, the terminology is up to date and factual to the story line and the characters Laura Griffin has developed. There is violence....but when aren't terrorists and their actions brutally violent. The hero and heroine are strong, complex individuals whose patriotism and dedication to their sworn duties bring them together. Their relationship evolves...into a sexual one. Which works well into who they are and the dangers they face doing their jobs to discover and stop a terrorist plot.
I have been a fan of Laura Griffin's Tracers series for many years. I highly recommend reading her books. They never fail to entertain and enlighten me in numerous branches of the military and law enforcement. I also enjoy revisiting some of the characters from earlier Tracer series books. It's like catching up with an old friend at a reunion.
Her books give me hope that the war on terror, drugs, home grown militia's and criminal organizations is being won by heroic men and women who lay their lives on the line every day for "us regular people." Thanks to all of them.....and thanks Laura for the great stories...!
This book centers around Elizabeth an FBI agent and Derek a Seal who met in "Scorched". Although you could read this book without having read the previous book. I really liked Elizabeth. She was a strong, capable and tough woman. Derek was just okay for me. I think the problem was that he believed that he was so much more capable then everyone else and although I understand Seals are really capable and awesome he was just too arrogant. He made a lot of decisions where he kept Elizabeth out of the loop even though it was her case and shouldn't even be involved since operating on US soil is illegal for military personnel. He went so far that Elizabeth could have been in serious trouble and possibly even lost her job because he wouldn't trust her with information or involve her in what he was doing. I understood the "lust" between the characters but I just didn't see Elizabeth falling in love with a guy who was pulling that "crap".
Still the action was intense and kept me on the edge of my seat wanting to know what was going to happen. The writing was wonderful and I thoroughly enjoyed the story. The book caught my attention from the very beginning and it never slowed down. There wasn't much interaction with the Delphi Center in this book and could almost be a completely different series.
I really enjoyed this book and will continue to have the Tracer Series as a must buy!
When one of Derek's missions uncover a terrorist plot he finds himself being questioned by FBI agent Elizabeth. They've met previously in a different investigation and neither one has been able to forget the other. Derek has a vested interest in seeing the suspects caught not only because the plot is supposed to take place in his home state but because one of his teammates was killed in the op involving one of the suspects. Elizabeth finds herself stuck with Derek as they race to catch the terrorists before they can cause any destruction on US soil. While I'm not usually a reader of terrorist plot lines, this one was pretty good with enough twists and turns to keep me interested. Derek and Elizabeth actually worked really well together when they got over their hangups.
Because Derek and Elizabeth have met previously there isn't a feeling of being rushed into their relationship. They are both seriously attracted to each other and that really comes through while you're reading. I also enjoyed reading about Luke and Hailey and I'm really hoping that they get their own story eventually. There were only a handful of scenes with them but I found myself looking forward to them while reading, which shows just how well Laura Griffin writes her secondary characters.
Although Beyond Limits is the eighth book in the Tracers series it can be read as a stand alone, each of the books focus on a different couple, and even though Derek and Elizabeth were both introduced in a previous book I had no problem picking up this one without reading the others first. You still get the back-story of how they met so don't worry that you'll be lost if you're starting with this one. Overall Beyond Limits is a great read with lots of action and some scorching hot romance to spice it up.

This was the first book of read by Laura Griffin and I loved it ..... I was hooked right from the beginning and I enjoyed it as a stand alone however I loved it that much I'm going to go buy the rest in the series..... well written and worth a read..... I'm looking forward to reading the rest.....
Laura Griffin, once again has done another excellent job. I could feel the characters and their anguish and their desires. I have read everyone of her books. In fact I have re-read many of her books and I am pretty sure I will be reading " Beyond Limits" again before the next Tracers book is out.
I so recommend Laura Griffin's books. Read them all if you love a book full of suspense, adventure and romance!!!
