Review

This is quite possibly the BEST EVER NOVELLA I've had the pleasure (and honour) of reading. It has the right amount of angst, tension, action, sweetness and heart-stopping moments. -- Whairigail, Addicted to Books

Camouflaged blew me away.  I was surprised at how well developed the characters were and how amazing the story was for a novella.  A lot of authors don't master this in full novels two and three times the size of Camouflaged. -- Heather, The Real Housewives of Romance

I completely enjoyed this sweet military romance novella! This was my first novel of Ms. Laurence's that I've read, and it certainly won't be my last. -- Tessa, Gutter Girls Book Reviews

For me, Camouflaged by Selena Laurence, was right on the mark and was absolutely amazing! -- Heather, Griffins Honey Blog Book Reviews

Do yourself a favor and take a few hours to read about Gabe and Alexis and see what's underneath their camouflage!!! -- Tiffany, Tiffany Talks Books

Camouflaged continues Laurence's Hiding From Love series (though it is technically a prequel), and tells the story of Gabe Thompson. While Nick (Hidden) was sent stateside after an incident, Gabe, his best friend, is still in Afghanistan finishing up his second tour of duty. Gabe's always been the player, the proverbial man who runs away from commitment. But, as with any playboy in romanceland, this changes as he begins to fall for Alexis Garcia, the UN volunteer he is assigned to show around the area.

I really liked Camouflaged. I will admit, I still love Laurence's previous novel more, but it's not a big drop in rating (only a half a star). My biggest complaint is a common, but very good one-- I wanted more. I wish this novella had been a bit longer (or that it had been a full-length novel). I wanted more of a resolution in the end. A lot can happen in the six months until Gabe's tour ends and I wasn't completely reassured that their HEA was reached. A few more chapters, or an epilogue, would have helped. Or perhaps another novella or short story covering this couple in the future? (Hint, hint, Ms. Laurence!)

Of course, I'm a bit harsher when rating my novellas, and it's very rare for me to give one a top rating. However, Camouflaged does come very close.

Obviously I loved Gabe. I was a bit unsure at first due to his player attitude, but he turned around. I also respected his strength and dedication, especially by helping to support his mom back in the States. He was sexy (of course!) but he was sweet, in his own way, as he got to know Alexis.

This entire novella is told from Gabe's POV. I liked this, but I also thought at times it would have been nice to see some parts from Alexis' POV, too.

I have been in search of a really great romance for a long time now, and I have been convinced I wasn't going to find it. So, having had all three of this author's series on my kindle for some time and not reading them, I started out with the preconceived notion I wouldn't like them. I was fairly surprised to find I was wrong, at least with this, the first.

My major criticism is with the novella length. I don't think there is time in this framework for any author to fully develop characters. We only get to hear it from "his" POV. I would like to have heard "hers." You could say that this type of format by "default" ends up a bit "rushed." That being said, Ms Lawrence has done a better job than most with it.

I have never been in the military, so I can't judge the accuracy of her depiction of Afghanistan. I can only say that it comes across to this layperson as very convincingly realistic. I also don't believe in love at first sight. There are obviously cases of instant attraction, sometimes mutual. And if two people who experience such attraction are lucky enough to get to know each other and find lasting qualities of compatibility, admiration and respect, well, true love develops. At the end of this novella, we only get to the beginning of Gabe and Alexis' relationship. They are attracted to each other, that is obvious, and they are starting to like one another when Camoflage ends with the promise of more to come.

So far I haven't given anyone a compelling reason to read. I will only say that I am intrigued to read more of this author's writing. They are well written in a grammatical sense and well edited. (Something that should be expected and shouldn't need to be spelled out; sadly, I find that too often not true.

Gabe he's just so cocky, "oh, sweetheart, you don't know me too well. Ask around. You'll find there's a whole lot of things I can do that would interest you. Things that would help you relax." I liked being in his mind, "oh yeah, I thought as I strode out of the tent. We had a lot of unfinished business, and I was just the entrepreneur to handle the transaction." Alexis she's feisty, "do you ever stop?" she asked, her voice rising. "Do you ever stop and think about the other person in the equation? You could be doing all sorts of damage and not have any idea, because you're so focused on 'winning' that you don't care about the collateral damage." Gabe is also a snarky S.O.B, "I looked down at her for a split second. "Thanks for your concern, but I promise not to get killed so I can give you a ride home." I really hope Selena decides to do a full length novel with Gabe and Alexis like when he comes home from war, I mean I know this was a novella but I wanted more.

I really loved this story. This was a great read. The characters were very well developed, and the plot moved quickly along. While I bought this book for free for my kindle app, I would have gladly paid for it. I tend to go through phases of books, and currently I am hooked on military romance. This book delivered all of the promise in the description and more. I often try not to read the description too much, because they tend to give too much of the plot away too readily, and I really enjoy not knowing what to expect next. If you do read through the description, it is very accurate. Grammatically, this book is edited better than many others on here, but there were a few, minor mistakes. Nothing that takes away from the quality of the writing, though. I did read this entire book in one night, as I also tend to do when I cannot sleep. (It is becoming a bad habit, but at least it is a productive one). I am currently looking into purchasing more from this author, as this really was that good of a read. While this is also written as a series, it is good as a stand- alone as well. All of the background information is provided, and did not leave me, as the reader, guessing at all about any of the previous material. Again, this was great, I highly recommend it, and encourage others to give it a try. The author did mention in the credits that she is adding to this, to a series, so I will definitely have to look into those soon!
