  • Sweet, safe storyline with just enough suspense.

    The reviews I saw before reading this book were all glowing with admiration, so I went in with high hopes for this series starter. I truly wish I could leave an equally uplifting review, but I also want to remain honest in my opinion—I do hope my words come across in a constructive way, however, and not unnecessarily critical. Let’s start with the positives! The story line moves along quickly from the beginning and leaves no room for boredom or a lull in the action. I found myself interested in knowing more about almost every character presented throughout the book—I especially fell in love with Eva, and believe the authors own five children contributed greatly to the adorable (and believable) antics of this enchanting little girl. This book has just the right amount of action/suspense and clean, romantic elements. On the flip side, my immediate impression of her writing leads me to believe that Mrs. Blackard does not utilize a professional editor—wrought with grammatical errors and an overuse of certain words/phrases, this book could use some serious cleaning up as it reads more like a draft instead of a finished novel. For many recreational book-lovers, this might go largely unnoticed, but in my opinion it was consistently distracting from the overall quality of the story itself. From the first line of chapter one, I heavily considered putting it aside over my dismay with the clumsy, sometimes over-complicated, sentence structure and word descriptions. All of that being said, I am curious about the next book and hope to see improvement in both the writing style and story/character development as this series continues.
  • Great read!

  • An enjoyable and entertaining read— Zeke & Samantha

    By mc319
    This is such an enjoyable and entertaining read that has two people thrown together despite feelings in order to protect Samantha and her daughter Eva. Zeke didn’t trust Sam and didn’t necessarily like her but when he learned more of her story and Eva nearly being idnapped he stepped up to give them protection. Both are wary of trusting or falling in ove and losing their hearts. The characters are wonderful as well as the other members of the Stryker Security Force team with their teasing and the attention they gave to the little girl. One big happy family.. Eva, the 4 yr old daughter, was delightful and kept me in stitches. A good storyline with danger suspense, laugh out old moments and a sweet romance that blooms. I loved it!

    The Stryker Security Force has been taking on clients for some time now with great success. Zeke is very happy with his investment other than his inability to figure out QuickBooks and thus keep the records in order. Enter Samantha who has a need and the expertise to fill the bookkeeper position. Join the family as they tread the murky waters of stalking, kidnapping and even a bomb in their own compound. Throw in a dash of sweet romance, and you have a fabulous beginning to a new series. This outstanding book is a real joy to read. There are no extraneous love scenes - just a superb clean suspense that will keep you enthralled the whole time. With the home front running more smoothly, one wonders what might occur in book two - Capturing Sosimo. I, for one, am looking forward to finding out! Since this Kindle copy was purchased, there was no expectation of a positive review. These enthusiastic comments are my own.
