Wendy Hodges's review
Jul 17, 2017 · edit
it was amazing
Military, Law enforcement/ Fire officers as well as many agency staff put their lives on the line every single day that they serve, most hopefully live through and for the most part enjoy their chosen career, but there are also many that don't. Some are killed in action, some injured and for those, many it is life changing. For others it is more of a mind injury a result of things they have seen, heard or experienced, maybe being captured and tortured or form an extreme fire with massive loss of life. Lots of reasons and causes but it doesn't make it any easier for those that live with PSTD, so many different triggers can set it off. Samantha has written an incredibly powerful and sensitive story that covers just a small bit about this subject. Written in a way any one of us can get an understanding of what it is like and how it can affect those struggling with it, also a possible way to help get a little control back.
The build up from previous books to finding the Dom serial killer hits its peak and I have to say "awesome job Samantha" she kept me guessing to the end. I loved Logan and Dakota, they seem quite evenly matched in all ways. Logan especially took my heart I guess mostly because he was still fighting and willing to try anything that may help make life just a little easier to deal with, but even then still wanting to honour his buddies. I look forward to getting more of both of them in future books.
Plenty of suspense and tension plus the dealing with the PTSD helps to keep your heart racing and you sitting on the edge of your seat. Some very serious issues dealt with in this story but we do also get glimpses of humour here and there. I am in awe that this author still manages to out do each book, I keep thinking each will just not be as good as the last, but each time she proves me wrong. Not only is each as good as the last but they are even better. I feel blessed and privileged to read her stories, the Trident and Omega series are definitely my favourites. I see another big hit with this one, fantastic read.
Police officer Dakota Swift has been trying to the Special Operations Division and has pretty much decided to go a different direction after being passed over so many times. She accepts an assignment to work with the joint task force that includes TPD, FBI and Trident Security to finally locate and discover and take down the serial killer "Kink Killer". A serial killer that is targeting submissives who are involved in the BDSM lifestyle.
Logan and Dakota go undercover as Dom and Sub. What I really liked about this book is we follow along with Logan who has absolutely no experience or knowledge of the BDSM lifestyle and we learn along with him.
Logan and Dakota's attraction is instant and builds as the story goes along. The sex scences are sizzling.
The serial killer has been active in several books and the anticipation of who this killer might be has been driving me crazy.
I don't think I have ever had an author that writing seems to get better with each book like Samantha's does. She has an amazing way of writing that pulls the reader right into the story.
Build up of suspense, intrigue in this book is unbelievable. It gets very intense. I seriously could not put this book down. I was at the edge of my seat when the sub escaped the killer. I felt like I was looking behind her to see if he was coming after her. I was also yelling at Logan to hurry back to Dakota's to save her.
Was the killer who I thought it was...no. I was completely surprised.
Logan "Cowboy" Reese is a former Marine Corps Forces Special Operation Command (MARSOC) Raider who served in Afghanistan and was a POW. He's literally been through hell and survived but it was far from easy. With everything that's happened and what he's still dealing with, he's beyond shocked and surprised when Ian "Boss-Man" Sawyer invites him to join the Omega Team of Trident Security. After a lot of soul searching and self-doubt on his part, he finally accepts. He's got a lot of issues and isn't sure he'll fit in but he'll give it his best shot. Dakota Swift is a member of the Tampa Police Department (TPD). She's been trying to transfer from the Patrol Division to the Special Ops Division (SOD) for what seems like forever. She has an outstanding record with commendations and awards. But every time an opening occurs, she's not even considered. She's never known why and has almost given up. But the new captain of SOD calls her in to meet on a very special ongoing case involving not just the TPD but the FBI and Trident Security as well. As she gets the details of the case, she's knows she's the perfect fit and jumps at the chance to participate.
Part of the operation is for Dakota and her new temporary partner to go undercover as a D/s couple in one of the local BDSM clubs. Fortunately, Dakota is already a member of the lifestyle and is well-acquainted with what it will take to pull this off. But when she learns she's partnered with Logan, things have a very rocky start. Logan knows nearly nothing about BDSM and has to learn from the ground up. The operation they're part of isn't just dangerous. It's deadly. Can Logan overcome his past to become a convincing Dom? Will the contentious beginning of the partnership between Dakota and Logan derail the mission before it ever gets off the ground? There's a learning curve for Logan that could put both in extreme danger. The twists, turns, totally unexpected revelations, and potential romance for more than a single couple are a complete roller coaster ride of emotions of all types. All of Ms. Cole's fans who've read the Trident Security books and the prequel novella to the Omega Team series (Mountain of Evil) have been waiting for this book. It's full of tension, anticipation, and fraught with danger, breathtaking and death-defying moments, as well as BDSM erotic romance that will take your breath away.
One final note. This is an ADULT book. It contains some violence, explicit language, and BDSM-themed sexual scenes. If you don't enjoy this genre, think hard before buying any book you know you won't enjoy. There are book synopses and reviews available on Goodreads and all booksellers' websites. USE THESE RESOURCES. DON'T LEAVE A NEGATIVE REVIEW WHEN YOU KNOW YOU WON'T ENJOY THE BOOK. IT'S NOT FAIR TO THE AUTHOR! She works extremely hard to provide a quality work product. If you know you'll object to the book's subject matter before you buy it, you're doing yourself and the author an extreme disservice.
I give A Dead Man's Pulse my highest recommendation without reservation. Thank you, Samantha Cole, for once again giving us such a wonderful book that shows your hard work, your mastery of the genre, and your extreme writing talent! Kudos for such a remarkable book! Thanks for reading my review and happy reading!

As for the two main characters I really liked them both and thought they were perfect for each other. And I enjoyed the relationship that developed between them. I also found the PTSD storyline very interesting to read and thought it was well written and very believable.
It was also great to catch up with the members of Trident, including the newer ones from team Omega. And I'm looking forward to reading more of their stories in the future. As for A Dead Man's Pulse I would happily recommend it to others. Especially if you're a fan of this a series.
This is her best work yet and if you have never read a book by this lady, what are you waiting for ?
It's very well written and has great characters, but then, you'd expect nothing less from Samantha A. Cole!
Perhaps what I also mean to say that after so much buildup through the other easily accessible Trident series the ending of this plotline is almost a letdown especially because I don't get more stories until they get written.
