This is a well-written story with well-written characters. I enjoyed how Walker & Clara both have pretty clear & simple views of their place in the world, and how the story slowly forces them to change their world views. There is a lot of darkness in this story, but there are also nice tiny moments of humor, and little cracks where light can sneak in to create a realistic world that can hold the horrific,and the happy.
I will read any book that has Dana Marton's name on it and for non-stop action and sizzling characters, it's easy to understand why she has so many fans. Flash Fire left me breathless and panting in equal measures. This author's talent for bringing us right into her scenes, through her amazing dialogue and descriptions, is incredible!
Surrounded by the jungles in Mexico, Light Walker, former Navy Seal is now undercover, on a personal mission to bring down the drug cartels in the area, responsible for his brother's death. It has taken him two years to get close enough to end this, when he is asked to help an Army General assist his daughter, a DOD Investigator search for someone who vanished in his area.
With his violent background and commanding presence, Clara Roberts is about to get the surprise of her life when she meets Light Walker in the cantina for their meeting. Six feet of stunning masculinity, with ice cold control, leaves Clara shocked when he kills a local gang leader trying to take her.
Running for their lives, there's no let-up in this story until the very end. I love Light Walker and the multi-dimensional way Ms. Marton created him, with strength and vulnerability. Pairing him with a spirited, sensitive and intelligent woman was a perfect balance to their dynamic personalities. I can see why so many people responded to Flash Fire. The accolades are deserving, to say the least. Kudos! Bravo!
I really enjoyed reading Flash Fire. Claire is the type of heroine I like, unshakeable, logical, with vulnerability. Walker is the type of hero I like, tough, Alpha, with a buried conscience. The vendetta Walker was on made sense and definitely moved the story forward. And Claire's mission was also well motivated.
I had to really suspend my disbelief when Claire's only thought was bringing her Glock to Brunhilda. Although I realize being who she was, organized and frugal, she wanted the gun to go to Walker, but since she was trying to get out of the country, she simply could have hidden it and left. And then, the entire reason why SHE had to be the one to rescue Rosita should have been addressed. Ms. Marton should have written the scene where Claire and her father talked and she revealed what Rosita had told her. It would have also been nice to learn what the outcome was to Rosita's cousin and aunt. It was a major piece of the plot.
This is a standalone book that is not a cliffhanger. Clara was asked to investigate the disappearance of a missing girl. Clara's dad, the General, sets up help for her in the form of Light Walker. Light is in the middle of avenging his brothers death when he meets Clara and his world changes. Will Light and Clara get their HEA or will the cartel win?
I loved this story When we first meet Light Walker appears to a ruthless killer but even then he does something unexpected. He has just killed several men but then frees trapped birds and saves a chick. It shows that there is still something good in him. He works with Clara Roberts, an investigator on a personal mission to locate a missing teenager. Over the course of the story we learn why Light is orchestrating a cartel war and Clara realizes that everything is not always easily put in one column or the other. There is plenty of danger, thrills, mystery and action as we learn more about Light and Clara and watch them overcome their difficulties to come together. Dana never fails to give us great characters, locations and stories. It was a delightful story and once I started reading it was difficult to put it down.
Flash Fire continues in the world begun in Forced Disappearance, following the activities of a small Government department sending investigators around the globe to rescue missing US citizens, or to retrieve their bodies.
Clara Roberts, a by-the-book investigator, is winding up a successful mission in Mexico, when the head of her department, her father, asks her to search for a missing teenager. This mission however, is different, it is a personal request not an official request from her father, and instead of being allocated a partner, her father puts her in touch with a local 'facilitator'. Light Walker, a former Navy SEAL owes her father a favour, and reluctantly takes on the job. But he has his own agenda, a personal vendetta against the local drug cartels, and his plan is to send Clara home as soon as possible, if not sooner. Can they find a way to work together, even when their goals conflict?
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and its predecessor. It is well-written, fast-paced, and the characters develop as the story progresses. The plot may be a little far-fetched, and some of the action is a little over the top, but it is after all, fiction. It's a cracking good read. I look forward to reading more books in this series.
This is the first romance book in a long time that reeled me in, hook,line and sinker. Clara is the perfect mix of being strong yet compassionate. Walker is smoking hot! He is a bad boy for all the right reasons. Sexual tensions without disgustingly graphic sex scenes every couple of pages. Based on an intriguing story about cartel wars. Thank you, Dana! I am now a big fan of yours.
J: This one is strangely rather boring so far, which is quite unusual for this author. I am half through the story and there really is no suspense, very little excitement and I feel no connection to the main characters. I am even starting to skip over sections trying to find the "good part."
