Een Bijzondere Vorm Van Osteosclerose eTastic read This novel isasily read as a standalone but also ties in well to the past novels in the series I wouldn t hesitate to recommend it to those who njoy a good romantic suspensePlease note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in xchange for an honest review About a 35 star read for me At first this felt like some of the other Lindsay McKenna books I ve read lately but as I read on it began to grow on me Most of the book focuses on the two main characters Leah and Kell On a routine mission in Afghanistan Leah s helicopter is shot down She is the only survivor and is rescued by Kell Kell takes her to his cave yes cave and nurses her to health They are in constant danger of being found by the Taliban This was a fun book to read A little intense in the romance actually a bit Stockholm Syndrome for me in a way because of the circumstances Leah s damaged goods because of a previous sham of a marriage She is skittish around men but finds herself attracted to Kell Kell realizes that Leah shows signs of abuse and allows her to lead the way I njoyed watching these two fall in love and work together to get back to the campNice happy ver after too A perfect book to read by the pool beach or summer cottage Thank you to NetGalley and Harleuin for a review copy of this book Oh the melodrama I ve not read a single book by this author where the heroine wasn t brutally raped at least once Summary from GoodreadsTemporarily assigned to the Shadow Suadron in a troubled region of Afghanistan Chief Warrant Officer and pilot Leah Mackenzie is no stranger to conflict Hot Shot (North Ridge Book 3) even if most of her physical andmotional scars are courtesy of her vicious Math Basics 6 ex Still she s got a bad feeling about picking up a team of stranded SEALs A feeling that s all too justified oncenemy fire hits their helicopter and all hell breaks looseSEAL Kell Ballard s goal was to get the injured pilot out of harm s way and find shelter deep in the labyrinth of caves It s a place of dark intimacy where Leah finds unexpected safety in a man s arms Where prohibited attraction burns brightly And where they ll hide until the time comes to face the Voyage to the Underworld (Star Wars Missions, enemy outsideand thenemy within their ranksMy ThoughtsRomantic suspense is one of those genres that I always want to read of but hardly The First Ghost ever do I love when it is done right and I cannot stop turning the pages While I went into reading this book assuming that it was going to be that type of read what I found was a slow burning romance that I couldn t help but appreciate for other reasons Running Fire throws the two main characters into a tough and intense situation where they are relying on only themselves to survive and get out ofnemy territory Almost instantly they realize that there is also a deep attraction between the two of them But it isn t the danger that is keeping them apart from xploring their feelings Instead it was Leah s past and motional scars that they are forced to deal with right away The author did a really great job of not glossing over all of the horrific things that Leah went through with her first marriage For me it made what was growing between her and Kell All Of The Better At First I of the better at first i with their instant attractionfeelings but first I with their instant attractionfeelings But as I thought about it it was really the intensity of their Simple Numbers, Straight Talk, Big Profits!: 4 Keys to Unlock Your Business Potential entirexperience that brought those feelings out and they both couldn t help but to given in a little bit to their feelings for one another Sigh I liked that and I liked what they found together with one other It took its time building as Leah needed for them to take it slowly and you don t see that nough in romance books in my opinion I liked that they didn t just jump right into a relationship ven though they both wanted toI did have a few issues connecting to this book at times I think it was mainly because I wanted Leah to stand up for herself I don t Humanism even know if that is realistic withverything that she had gone through but I wanted it all of the same The uirks of the reader I know She left her Smokin' Hot ex husband which shows she had some strong grit to her but she didn t always show it in the book I would have liked to see of her stronger side and I think this caused me to not uite connect to the story like I had hoped I alsoxpected this to have a bit suspense to it which for me Placing Memory even despite the dire circumstances they found themselves in didn t happen until later in the book And then it really was a page turner and I needed to know what was going to happen Overall I thought that this was a good readven though I had a few issues with it I definitely #want to continue on with this series and see what happens next #to continue on with this series and see what happens next would love to see if Kell and Leah are included in future books as it would be nice to get a peek at their relationship as it continues to grow I think that romance readers will probably njoy this one Recommended with a few hesitationsBottom Line A good read and I will be reading by this authorDisclosure I received a copy of this book thanks to the publisher for a TLC book tour Thoughts are my own Another fantastic Shadow Warriors book that kept me glued to the pages until I finished it Leah is a helicopter pilot filling in for an injured pilot in the Shadow Suadron at Camp Bravo She loves what she does and has an xcellent reputation as a pilot The bad feeling she gets about the latest mission to pick up a team of SEALs is realized when the chopper is hit by an RPG and goes down Leah is the only survivorKell is a SEAL sniper assigned to the area to watch Taliban activity and look for the local leader He. Helter deep in the labyrinth of caves It's a place of dark intimacy where Leah finds unexpected safety in a man's arms Where prohibited attraction burns brightly And where they'll hide until the time comes to face the nemy outsideand the nemy within their ran. Please note This story deals with domestic abuse and rape Both are addressed in my review Please take this into consideration before reading further andor purchasing this bookThere wasn t a whole lot of Wanton Nights exchange friendly or otherwise between the Americans and the Taliban but there was this intensity to this story that left me on thedge of my seat Because while Kell and Leah holed up in caves they both knew that danger awaited them and I don t just mean on their journey to Bravo but when they got there as wellI really loved watching Kell and Leah s relationship grow Leah had issues before she landed in Kell s arms and they weren t small ither Distrust in men daddy issues physical abuse and spousal rape You d never know it from Ms McKenna s description of her though but then you re not supposed to judge a book by its coverThe first time Leah yelled in her sleep my heart dropped It seems to do that a lot when I read these kinds of stories I thought Kell would be cautious around her maybe treat her with kid gloves or avoid her altogether He didn t The he learned about Leah the he wanted to protect her keep her safe keep her with him And the he learned about Leah s x husband a pilot who was out to get her at any cost the he wanted to run his fist through the bastard s faceAnd I wanted him to have that chance Her x deserved that and so much for what he did to Leah during their married years using her to forward his military career threatening her into agreeing raping her if she didn t comply I hated him and I didn t meet him until further on in this story By then I wanted him to meet then fists of Kell s SEAL brothers so he could understand how you don t go abusing people weaker than you just because you canThen there was her x s attempted rape of another female pilot Leah had already been through so much by this point in the story that I wished Ms McKenna hadn t written this turn of ಪರಿಸರದ ಕತೆ Parisarada Kathe events I almost uit reading because I wasn t sure I wanted to read one heinous act herx committed I really didn t I left my reader on the bed for a few hours hoping I d actually forget But I didn t I went back and finished it I needed Leah to stand tall in that instant I needed to see what she would do Would she cower and ignore the other woman s plight Or would she stand up with the other woman and bring her The Fiend Next Door ex to justiceShe did herself and Kell proud by taking that chance risking her career and finally yes finally standing up to that bastard I cheered out loud for her bravery because it was a long time coming and I anxiously waited for him to get what was coming to himThrough all of this Kell was Leah s rock The men in her life had failed her and had caused her not to trust men in general but Kell showed her that her trust in him wasn t misplaced that he darned the right to have it that he would protect it like he would her His freakishly accurate ability to read Leah helped his cause For all that he could see in her he never pushed for than she was willing to give His gentleness and concern nabled her to trust him with her body her heart and her brokennessIt is rare that I read an active military duty romance Most are post military duty dealing with PTSD and the soldier s return to civilian life This is one of a few active military duty romances I have read and I am so glad I did I love that Ms McKenna didn t shy away from hard to deal with issues I m glad she didn t downplay them in favor for romance and that she paired a patient caring man with a woman who needed and would appreciate both ualities in himA terrific story from beginning to nd this is one I ll read again and one I ll definitely recommend45Received from TLC Books for an honest review Running Fire by author Lindsay McKenna is the first book that I have read by this awesome author This was a fantastic action packed and பொன்னியின் செல்வன் -
