Tracyleen ve Bayan Crystal ile tanıştığımız yer burası!
(re-read in 10/09) i used to think the first book (this one) was my favorite of the series. now i'm not so sure. i still appreciate all it does, the way she doesn't shy away from violence and fear and women's issues, but she almost put too much in terms of the characters in this book, so sara and jefferey and lena seem much more one dimensional than they do in later books. i know the plot had to keep moving, but still. the thing is, i kind of have a blind love for these characters. all of them. the only thing i don't like is the fact that lena and sara can't seem to get along, especially after the events in this book - i don't get the hatred. someone explain? the only thing i can think of is jealousy about jefferey, but . . . yeah. i still love it.
3.5 Stars Rita Henuber delivers a smart, sexy and dangerous tale with Under Fire! Commander Olivia Carver is a top notch helo pilot for the US Coast Guard but when the authorities fail to take down her twin brother’s murderer she heads to Miami looking for answers herself. There she meets a sexy local, Rico Cortes. Having a bit of a dry year and feeling an instant attraction to the sexy and funny dark haired stranger, Olivia ends up spending the night in his apartment. When she returns to her assignment though, taking down a drug runner off the coast she finds out the Rico is really an undercover DEA agent and shit literally hits the fan. With a traitor in their midst Rico and Olivia decide to go in on their own to take the drug cartel down and find the bad cop, who is also responsible for her brother’s death. Olivia was one kick ass heroine in Under Fire! Referred to as the ‘Poster Girl” for the USCG she is beautiful and capable. Trained for deadly combat in the air and on the ground she knows how to take care of herself but is not lacking with a sensitive female side that shines through every now and then, at the best moments I must add. Her relationship with Rico was scorching with sexy dancing, sizzling innuendos and scorching love scenes I couldn’t get enough of these two. Rico himself was hot, dangerous and oh so swoon worthy. A great match for Olivia both physically and mentally. The plot was well thought out, detailed and realistic; you can tell the author really knows her stuff with the military and government agencies. At times it got a bit too detailed and went over my head but this didn’t distract from the overall story line. Action packed and fast moving I read this in one sitting. There were several scenes that seemed to be cut short though, missing out on a few important points I felt; I’m not sure if this is because what I read was an ARC or if it will be in the final product. The one thing that brought this down a full point for me though was the ending. It felt abrupt, unfinished and lacked closure. I have no idea if these two are going to make it together or even if one will survive. A real disappointment for me and extremely frustrating in what would of otherwise been a superb read. Awesome scene: "What's it going to take to get you to dance with me?" She crooked her index finger and motioned him to come closer. "A million in your bank account and seven inches in your pants." Without missing a beat he replied, "The million I have, but even for a woman as beautiful as you, I won't cut off three inches."
