Code Name: Aries (Zodiac Tactical Rescue Unit) Kindle Edition
The stars aren’t wrong.
Zodiac Tactical is my company. It’s run by those I’ve chosen for their skills and ability to outmaneuver adversaries. We guard, protect, rescue…assist on the side of the angels.
We eliminate the threat when nobody else can.
My pastime of putting bad guys out of business has created powerful enemies, but I’ve always made sure there was nothing in my life I couldn’t live without.
Until now. Until her.
She’s not a warrior, she’s an artist. She sees colors everywhere and greets the world—and me—with a smile. I knew I shouldn’t come near her from the beginning, but she’s everything I’ve never been able to be.
And now a monster has taken her, caged her, to get even with me.
My code name is Aries. And I will burn the world to the ground to get her back.
USA Today and Publisher's Weekly bestselling author Janie Crouch brings the long-awaited follow-up to her Linear Tactical series: Zodiac Tactical—the team of protectors who stand at the front line in the face of danger. Come meet Ian DeRose, the safeguarding warrior who will do anything to defend gentle Wavy Bollinger.

Ian is a complex character. He's self-assured and solid when danger strikes, but has an endearing quality of understanding even the most wounded soul. Watching him fall for Waverly is very fulfilling.
Wavy is a sweetheart of a character. She's tough and doesn't take any lip from anyone, but she lets her softer side show through in her art. Seeing her put in such a rough position is difficult.
I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys suspense and intrigue but enjoys a lot of heart mixed into their characters.
Aries has been to hell and back at the hands of the group Mosiac. He is strong, protective, and he will walk through Hell to save Wavy. He proves that just as she proves that she is capable of the same.
Ms. Crouch did a fantastic job of keeping me glued to my seat with my Kindle. I wasn't sure there would be a happy ending for these two but the ending is perfect. She didn't rush things along and make it seem like Wavy was okay after her abduction. This is an action-filled love story not to be missed. I am excited to see what comes next for the Zodiac group.
Ian DeRose and Wavy Bollinger don't exactly meet in the most conventional manner but their ensuing love affair is an emotional rollercoaster filled with breathtaking highs and gut wrenching lows. The pursuit of the sinister Mosaic by Zodiac Tactical plays a major role in both Ian's professional and personal life. It also puts Wavy squarely in Mosaic's crosshairs. As a result their shared experiences give them the deepest of all possible connections and a bond that finally becomes unbreakable.
The hardened assassin meets the soft hearted artist in this face paced, highly emotional read that’s sure to please fans of Mrs. Crouch’s earlier works. Those new to her world will feel welcomed into the fold with this new group of courageous men & their amazing women. Long time fans will be pleased to see snippets of Linear Tactical after her last book & feel welcomed right back home to the little town of Oak Creek, Wyoming as if they never left.
Now.how on earth am I suppose to support that!
ONCE AGAIN, you have done it
Wavy and Ian's story is completely over the top. I loved every angst, horrifying moment. It was totally stupendous! The ending, typical, I had to laugh
Even though all these two individuals dealt with, Wavy"s personality made me laugh! Ian's come back, just wonderful!
Another.amazing suspense filled Janie Crouch Novel!
But, not just another suspenseful, but thriller filled!
I absolutely loved!
Ian has never met a woman as strong and brave as Wavy Bollinger. She’s becoming his everything. But being with Ian DeRose comes with a cost and she may just pay the price.
So many twists and turns in this sizzling new suspense spin-off from the Linear Tactile series. As Ian and his team try to track down the head of the new Mosaic and save Wavy.
I absolutely loved it. I can’t wait for the next one!
Top reviews from other countries
Ian and Wavy have made brief appearances in the Linear Tactical series and now they have their own story. Drawn together by an invisible force Wavy brings colour and light to Ian‘s all too often dark life, his Rainbow makes him smile and soothes his soul. Much as Ian doesn’t want to involve Wavy in his dark and dangerous life, he can’t fight the pull of the warm, gentle, unique woman that is Wavy Bollinger and when the evil from his past snatches her away, Ian will stop at nothing to get her back.
Without a doubt the story is intensely dark at times and will test your emotions, there is heartbreak and tragedy as well as the deep beautiful love story at its heart. Action packed, filled with suspense, you will be gripped and enthralled from start to finish. If you need more there is also romance, passion and humour in this powerful story of human strength, determination and resilience in the face of horror.
I loved Aries so much, definitely didn’t want it to end and I now have new favourite Janie Crouch characters (sorry Gabe and Jordan) Can’t wait for the rest of the series, I know it is going to be superb!
Wavy mistakenly hits Ian on the head with a tray thinking he was a bad guy. Cue the start of their budding romance.
Ian is in the trail of an old foe and when wavy gets caught in the cross fire it brings the realisation that this foe has some major plans for terrorism for the future. Will wavy and Ian both survive the fall out.
I honestly can’t believe what I just read! This was crazy good. A total different ball game from Linear Tactical.
It was amazing to read the development of both characters. And i sware the ending just about crushed me.
Well done Janie on the first book in what is going to be an amazing new series
We know Wavy well, she is sassy, feisty, protective but ultimately she is a carer not a warrior. She has survival skills, she has determination and we discover she has a fire in her soul that helps her survive but can she survive long enough to be rescued? I loved this book and whilst I look forward to book two, Sarge's book, I am eager for Landon's book. The Zodiac Tactical Team is packed with slightly damaged warriors looking to protect the innocent from the darkest, most depraved members of society.
Ian DeRose is in charge of Zodiac Tactical, and in book 1 we are introduced to some of his team, we also have a few crossover characters from the author’s previous Linear Tactical Series, with Wavy Bollinger being the main crossover, sister of Finn & Baby.
I loved Wavy’s character, she is the light to Ian’s darkness.
This is a fantastic romantic suspense story full of intrigue, suspense, and a romance that gives you all the feels.
Great start to the series!
