Review: Hide and Seek (Sgt. Major Eric Moyer #4) by Jeff Struecker, Alton Gansky


About the book:
Amelia Lennon no longer wears a uniform or carries a weapon. An Army trained Foreign Affairs Officer, she’s negotiating a dispute with the Kyrgyzstan government that threatens to leave the U.S. without an airbase in that region. She traded her gun for the power of words, but now she needs both.

While following her government contact - Jildiz Oskonbaeva, the lawyer daughter of Kyrgyzstan’s president - Amelia witnesses an attempt to abduct her. She manages to prevent the kidnapping, but now the two women are on the run in a city that’s erupting into chaos.

Master Sergeant J.J. Bartley is the Special Operations team leader tasked to rescue Amelia and Jildiz. With two new members in his unit - one with a secret that could endanger everyone’s life - J.J. must soldier his unit through crazed mobs intent on overthrowing the government. Back home, his pregnant wife is misinformed that her husband and the team have been killed. But before this is over, Bartley will find out that’s the least of his problems.

My thoughts:

Hide and Seek is the 4th book in its series and even though I haven't read any of the previous books, I was able to follow the story line easily. I got invested into the characters and felt like I was right there with them.

I found it interesting that this book had TWO prologues. I've never seen that before, but it was fun. I liked all of the characters and felt for the wife at times. I recommend not reading the blurb before you read the story, as I feel it gives away a big spoiler.


All in all, I recommend this to fans of military thrillers!

My thoughts:

Lost Then Found was an interesting read. I enjoyed the characters and was rooting for a second chance love story. You could tell that they still had feelings for each other...

I liked the brother. He just wanted to be more involved and not treated like a kid, however I could see her point too -- she didn't want him to be in danger's way.

All in all, Lost Then Found was a good read.

Review: Special Delivery Baby (Cowboy Creek) by Sherri Shackelford


About the book:
Instant Daddy 

An abandoned baby is the last thing town founder Will Canfield expects on his doorstep. He's not the father—and the mother's unknown. But the precious little girl needs a protector. And Will never backs down from a challenge, even if it means caring for a newborn…or dealing with spitfire cattle driver Tomasina Stone.

With her father gone, Tomasina's trail life has ended. Yet becoming a polished city lady feels far out of her reach. All she wants is a place where she'll be appreciated, respected…maybe loved. And the more time she spends helping Will care for the baby, the more she wonders if she's found it. She's never wanted to settle down…but Cowboy Creek—by Will's side—might finally give her heart a lasting home.

My thoughts:

Where to start?  Special Delivery Baby was just as good as I was anticipating. It was a sweet story with heartfelt characters and it was a treat to read.

I liked how the MC was tough and yet also delicate. The romance was very nice and I LOVED the baby. It was cute to see how the story progressed and the ending was good.

All in all, Special Delivery Baby was a great read and I loved it! Now I just need to get the third book and I can finish this series. :D

My thoughts:

Vicious Cycle was such a great read!! I think it was even better than the first book. I felt for the characters and what they were going through. You could tell that Jordan wanted what was best for her daughter, but she had a difficult time getting past her addiction.

I loved how Lance was so heroic and helped Jordan. He was a great character. There were a few moments in this story when I didn't know what was going on and it was intense.

All in all, I recommend Vicious Cycle and look forward to reading the final book in this series.
