What I Liked:
---The set up. Three military brothers suddenly being brought home to Texas-- after over a decade away-- to help find their estranged father who had been kidnapped by terrorists along with a bioweapon.
---And the characters. While there was nothing overly remarkable about any of them they were still nice to spend time with and all good people.
---It was fairly quick paced. There's not a lot of down time as they deal with the bad guys and trying to figure out the missing pieces of the puzzle on who's behind kidnapping their dad and how to find him.
---The heroine held her s*** together when things went sideways. She didn't have any TSTL moments or irrational bits. It had me throwing my hands in the air going YES!!!!! lol
What I Struggled With:
---The romance relied almost entirely on them having been in love 14 years earlier. Then after a bad break up and not seeing each other once in 14 years they're magically in love and planning the future together within like 2 days. Erms.
---No condoms even though they were just "hooking up" and neither wanting anything serious.
---There wasn't enough resolution for me. The romance concluded but the series arc just wasn't totally satisfying. Nothing really resolved on that. They got their piece of the puzzle and basically handed things off to the next sibling and his heroine.
---There were bits I just didn't feel were well thought out. Or, I guess, you could say where the writing wasn't tight? Like they have a ranch with numerous animals and ranch hands and after a death they give the ranch hands time off. Erms. Who's going to care for all of the animals since hero/heroine are off saving the world? Or bits that really felt loose then after the fact they'd come in with an explanation on how it happened. It felt like it relied too much on convenience for explaining some things in order for other things to happen.
Okay. so it sounds like I really hated it. But I didn't. It was a decent enough read but squarely in the average category for me. That is not a horrible place to be and I liked it enough that I do want to read book two and see where things go for this group of brothers. Overall it was a nice diversion even with the quibbles.
What Natalie wants is to be professional with Owen and pretend like she does not still harbor the feelings of yesteryear even though she absolutely does. The distraction of him so close is making it hard to focus on what her job here right now is to do, find the weapon and neutralize it while figuring out who has kidnapped Owen’s father. She is a professional and nothing will deter her from the mission but one more kiss from Owen and her mind may just turn to mush. They were once the hottest couple in town and now it seems all these years later that fact still remains true.
As she does her part and Owen handles the bad guys with his brother the actions they take move things in the direction of secure and contain. Natalie knows her stuff as well as Owen knows his so when the heat comes raining down on them they are ready, willing, and able to fight side by side working on the good stuff later.
Donna Grant has started a spectacular series off in Book 1 with action, suspense, drama, and some too hot to contain romance.
What I did like was the characters. Owen and his brothers are interesting even though, you mostly only get to know Owen in this book. Natalie was an ok character, I think that despite the fact that she works with the Russian's she was very naive about a lot of things. Callie was great and probably my favorite character. Some things about the story was good, like the capture of the boys father and the mystery around Ragnorak. The action was really good as well. I think that enough of Owen's and Natalie's history together gets explained to see why there's tension when they see each other again.
What I didn't like is that all this takes place in Texas, at the family home when this is clearly a global issue. The brothers don't really interact that much. The whole scene at the end when Natalie tries to get information out of a top ranking Russian was just so wrong and unbelievable and the reason this book lost a star.
All in all this book was just ok. It has promise and hopefully the story gets better with the other brothers. But I'm interested enough in the story to want to know what will happen next.
