Tanner goes into the mission with the assumption that Alessandra is a spoiled, rich girl. He has a bad attitude to begin the rescue. He does not have much background information on Alessandra and has a lot to learn about her. You need to read the book to see how he rescues her and what they have to go through. I enjoyed seeing him wrestle with his misconceptions of Alessandra as he found out who she really was. Alessandra was a strong women that I admired. Neither liked the other one at first. That was an interesting development as they got to know each other.
I love Ms. Marton's books and this one did not disappoint. I can't wait to read the next book in the series. I encourage you to read the book, especially if you like SEAL stories like I do.
Perhaps the most glaring plot element error is the helicopters picking the two up in the eye of the hurricane. How did the helos flying through the hurricane to get to the calm eye? If they could fly through the generally stronger second half of the storm then they could have picked them up by flying in during the first half. Of course, that would have taken away the time together in the beach house and not given the insurgents time to catch up with them. However, those plot points could have between dealt with another way.
Alessandra Bellini is a former fur designer turned animal rights proponent who has traveled to an officially unsafe country to study jaguars. She has had no contact with her father in years and believes no one with FURever knows who he is. So when she's kidnapped from their compound, she doesn't expect to be rescued by someone sent by her estranged father. And especially by someone who automatically doesn't like her. Then she learns what her father told him, as well as some of Tanner's own personal biases, and decides her own personal Superman isn't so super after all, until they kiss. This book gets 3.5 stars.
The pros: The book was engaging, the characters were likable, and the setting was well developed.
The cons: It was predictable, oversimplified and rushed.
