Treasure seekers, CIA mole, terrorists, and a second shot at the girl. Anchor’s aweigh!!!!
I really do need to go back and read the author’s Black Knights series and I will. Promise. But I have a soft spot for Navy SEALs and diving for treasure in the Caribbean so this one got my full attention.
I’ve read a novella by the author that was the prequel for this series and was attracted to the author’s action plot and writing style that balanced good romance and suspense in equal amounts. I felt she continued that with this book. The SEALs who retired and bought into a salvage business together are a great band of brothers with their wise-cracking ways that turn no-nonsense when the time comes to get down to business. In this case, it was terrorists and CIA mole that stirred up the trouble. The foundation of the brotherhood and their shared warrior past is a big attraction for me and sets up my excitement for the whole series.
The focus is definitely on the action and the past with the romance more intuitive and passionate than one that comes on slowly. I don’t prefer that usually, but with this author’s writing, she made it work for me.
It was exciting and suspenseful, but its not extreme thriller-style just in case some readers shy away from ‘too much’.
It was a quick, engaging and exciting read and I’ll definitely be going back for more.
My thanks to Sourcebooks Casablanca for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
