This story opens somewhere in the rainforest of Colombia where biologist Clarissa has been collecting and recording water samples as part of a research project. Except for a single guide, she's working alone and is captured by what appears to be a middle eastern terrorist group that has tied her to a tent pole. Unbeknownst to her a SEAL team has been sent in to take out the terrorists and the team is equally unaware of Clarissa's presence. Team leader Blake has been having a personal existential crisis as he's come to realise that his mindless bar hopping and bimbo bedding activities have become tiresome, which makes him wonder if he still fits in with his team. Once he finds Clarissa he's committed to her safety, even though he's convinced he's just doing his job. But telling himself it's not personal doesn't make it true.
This is an okay read if you can ignore the sophomoric dialogue and the typos and miscellaneous grammar faux pas. Anyone who reads my blog "read my lips.home.blog" knows those are sore spots with me and that my tolerance level for sloppy writing and/or editing is not very high. If you can't run and keep up with the big dogs, then stay on the porch. (If you expect to be taken seriously in the publishing world it would behoove you to pay attention to the details.
Seriously, the plot premise is good but so much dialogue was wasted early on by focusing on the carousing and bar hopping past times of the whole team that I was tempted to DNF the book but I'm glad I hung in and finished it. The writing improved and the typos quit showing up and I was able to settle in and enjoy a romantic suspense. No, it won't likely win any literary prizes but that wasn't what I was looking for when I chose it to read. Three and a half stars.
This morning I woke up with the most excruciating pain in my left shoulder. It was worse than any pain I'd ever endured including child birth. However, I realized that just laying in bed thinking about the pain was not going to help so I used my Kindle and found this novel. I didn't put it down the rest of the day! Let me also state that I haven't always enjoyed Jamieson's novels to this degree. However, this novel had all that I love right from the beginning. This included a romantic rescue, an intelligent and independent main female character not to mention a fast pace that never stopped! It pulled me in so much that I barely noticed my shoulder pain. Ms. Jameson,THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Obviously, I would highly recommend this novel! I can't praise it enough. It was what I needed today and I have a feeling I will be turning back to you for more novels in the future!
I have friends who are SEALs and in the Army and Marines so am probably more familiar with their lingo, tactics, and the things they say and do.
I like your books but this “hoorah” just chaps my butt big time and interferes with the flow of my reading. The other military mistakes I can dismiss and it not interfere with my reading flow but NOT the “hoorah” thing.

I actually read this series out of order as I didn’t realise it was book four that I read first. Book four was a lot better. Not brilliant but the writer definitely improves.
There were a lot of spelling mistakes, incorrect words, and missing words, which spoilt the book.
Clarissa is a biologist and is doing a research paper on the soil in Columbia. (What that was about was never explained!) she is kidnapped by terrorists to ransom her off. He and his team are sent to take the leader of the terrorists back to America. While there they find Clarissa.
It’s a bit of an unbelievable storyline to be fair. The beginning of the book is pages of his life before the mission and that’s boring as well. I hate the way that his team all use women for sex and the way they talk about women is awful. And yes I know people who were in the army and still are, and they’re not all like that!!!
up in the air at the end, (she lives far away), but I imagine that will work itself out in later books.
