The author is a great storyteller - I was immediately pulled into and invested in the world she created. I also love good mysteries/suspense, and she's great at unveiling clues and pacing the action. She also writes the supporting characters well, and weaves them into the story, giving readers glimpses into who they are.
The reason I didn't give this story, or the series really, five stars is because the more I read of Max and Tamara's relationship, the less it appeals to me. On the one hand, I appreciate that the author doesn't pull back on the downsides of loving an "alpha male" - arrogance, single-minded focus, lack of consideration for the woman he's romantically involved with, sexism, etc. It's interesting to read how into honor and integrity Max is about his band of brothers, his family, and yet is utterly blind to what Tamara has to tolerate with all of his baggage. So ultimately, I find myself wondering what Tamara gets out of their relationship beyond a hunk and great sex.
I like Tamara a lot. But she's the one who always compromises and acquiesces, doesn't know much about him, and is compartmentalized out of areas of his life. I am certain this wasn't the intent, but I was intrigued by Bernard Wilson's character. I would have liked to read Tamara interact with him more, and be torn by the seemingly more stable and emotionally open Bernard vs bad-boy Max. Not because I love romantic triangles, but I'd like to see Max have to really work to keep Tamara's attention and favor. The book hints at Tamara not tolerating BS and setting boundaries, but doesn't follow through. But alas, this series isn't about Tamara, and certainly not Bernard.
Not sure if I'll read any future books in the series, but it's a well-written trio giving military vets much needed love and perspective, showing how intricate their ties can be, and bringing in solid suspense, mystery, and action. On that front, I highly recommend it. If you're reading this story for the romance, Max and Tamara in particular, you might be disappointed.
