THE SPECIAL OPS HERO FEARED NOTHING—UNTIL HE MET A WOMAN TOO HOT TO HOLD.…Lieutenant Jake Hansen has survived some of the riskiest missions known to man. But now the wounded Navy SEAL faces his toughest job yet: smuggling Dr. Isabelle Markham out of Africa without triggering an international incident. Not easy to do when the gorgeous hostage happens to be a senator’s daughter—and about as easy to resist as an oasis in the desert. If it weren’t for Jake, Isabelle would still be halfway across the world, where rebel forces left her for dead. The special ops warrior may have saved her life, but she doesn’t need him to protect her now. Tell that to the ruggedly handsome hunk in full battle fatigues who’s just been assigned as Isabelle’s personal bodyguard. Close quarters aside, Isabelle won’t let Jake anywhere near her heart—until danger throws them together again. And nothing in the jungles of wildest Africa could prepare them for a passion this wild. This crazy. This hot…

I read the third book in the series first (because it was the one I got my hands on) and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's a somewhat fun, entertaining, sexy read.
This one? Not so much. To begin with, this book feels like the polar opposite of the third - the romance is way toned down, there isn't nowhere near as much (explicit) romance, there are very serious plot devices that read more from a drama than from the vibe I got from the back-cover text... It's just so much. Honestly, book one is like a DC film (adding a non-consensual relationship) vs. Marvel in the third book.
If I'd known it was going to be so dark and dramatic, I wouldn't have gotten it, but I certainly don't regret reading the third book. Now onto the second, to figure out where it falls.
The book starts in a maelstrom of characters seemingly flung randomly at the reader with little purpose in the story line. About half way through, the story settles down and concentrates on the core characters and becomes a better product.

It is an action/romance thriller where the heroine was rescued from a kidnapper in the jungles of Africa. She's still in danger, so a Navy Admiral orders her rescuer to `secretly' guard her, because they don't want her to know her attacker is still on the loose, and have her lose her regained sense of safety and normalcy.

SPOILER: I didn't like the way they treated Cal the Admiral. He was a central character and a patriot but his story splatted flat at the end. Also, if your favorite uncle/dad was kidnaped by a vicious killer, would you spare the time from searching for him to blow your new boyfriend? Ahem. Also, hyper bodyguard didn't even look at the driver when the FBI picked up his gal? Reminds me of a line from the movie "Baby Blues", "No one looks at the driver."

What I did like most was the way the two broken people were able to bit by bit come to terms with their feelings and attraction for each other and also accepting and overcoming their past terrors. Also like that it obviously set up for another series of books which I will run right out and download off Amazon asap. Tyler has written a hit which starts off a bit scattered, but settles down into a solid 4 stars novel.
I have never read Stephanie Tyler before, but one of her books was in a boxed set I have. Essentially a 4th book in the trilogy. Not complaining. Just that I like to read trilogies/series in the order they are written. Consequently I have yet to read the 4th book, and bought this book blind. All that said....I enjoyed this one thoroughly. And will find and buy books 2 and 3 to get to book 4. So I can close out the boxed set,and put it back in the cloud. Fascinating characters, scary hold your breath situations, and mysterious backstory.
I liked this story, but she was so "yes", "no", "yes" it was starting to aggravate me. I loved his character and his "brothers" as well, but I'm not sure I'll read the rest of the trilogy. The storyline was excellent and the intrigue was great as well, but the whole sub story of Sarah was a little confusing and interruptive - as you can see I'm conflicted about this book.
This is the first in a great series. I am currently reading book 3. The first book is about Jake and Isabelle, plus on the periphery is the history of the brothers united by their own tragedies from childhood. This is an excellent read, is written well with a great storyline that keeps the reader turning the pages.
Interesting exotic background, with a believable hero & believable villains, unfortunately! Kept me lost in the story which involves rescuing a strong motivated woman, who doesn't want to be rescued from dire danger. Not to be missed if at all possible.
I loved the plot idea--heroic SEALs, rescue of a Doctors Without Frontiers surgeon etc. Unfortunately, the little details got in the way for me....and they just added up to too much distraction.

Many have mentioned the 15 year old joining the military is suspect. Yes, it happened in the 'old days', but in the modern era of computerized records, clearances etc, not so likely. Not to mention a 15 year old is just not physically or mentally an adult yet...(and this 15 year old went straight to BUDS???).

Not enough concept of military structure. At the most basic, I really could not see that the author knew the difference between the enlisted community and the officer community. Too many references to 'enlisting' to go to OCS (Officer Candidate School). Um no. Not really. Yes, there are the some that go from being enlisted to an being officer, and will indeed make that jump, but that is not common. I find it unlikely all three brothers 'enlisted' and one is an Ensign and one is an LT, while the third is a Senior Chief. At age 26 if I counted right. Wow. It really sounded like there was the thought it was part of the normal promotions.

Little things like how the LT was, even on a mentoring level, overly familiar with the Admiral. Who inexplicably got Isabelle a job in the base clinic by 'pulling strings'. I guess there were no GS (or whatever it is these days) or contractor positions involved. No opening the job to all applicants. Pushing for his protege to get a job on the taxpayer dollars. Nope, no invitation for an IG complaint there. Not to mention getting a plastic surgeon credentialed to do primary care. That seemed odd too.

Oh and calling Marines (that is with a capital M) soldiers. Don't do that. Please. And it REALLY sounded like the SEAL team was hanging on a Marine base, and Marines were going through SEAL training and/or BUDS. Marines are not SEALS. They are Force Recon last time I checked. And they most certainly aren't soldiers!

Egads, I am ranting. Can I just say though, that despite my annoyance in the details (and this author is NOT alone in making these kinds of mistakes) I really loved the whole idea and bought the next two books in the series, as well as the two related books. I enjoyed the idea of them...and unlike some others, I find the borderline paranormal aspects fun--what's wrong with a little intuition and delivering babies! The Midwife SEAL.

So, still a read, and I hope the research gets better....lots of potential here!
