Sparks fly when a journalist and a Navy SEAL cross paths in Thailand in this third entry in the thrilling and sexy Alpha Crew series from New York Times bestselling author Laura Griffin.
Journalist Karly Bonham is on her first overseas mission, covering the new United States ambassador to Thailand, when she is taken hostage by terrorists, with only her wits and courage to keep her alive—until help arrives in the form of Navy SEAL Ethan Dunn.
As part of an elite SEAL team called Alpha Crew, Ethan has been on countless harrowing missions, but he knows this one is different the instant he meets Karly—the sexy young reporter who somehow managed to escape the terrorists’ clutches. Ethan is impressed by her, especially when he learns she has intel that could be the key to a successful rescue op. Ethan knows working with a civilian raises the stakes on an already dangerous mission. But with the clock ticking down, he enlists Karly’s help to thwart a vicious plot and bring a terrorist mastermind to justice.
Another great story by Laura Griffin!
The Alpha Crew's new romantic couple is Ethan Dunn and Karly Bonham.
Karly is a journalist who flew to Thailand to interview the well-liked and desirable United States ambassador. She has developed a good rapport with him and his daughter. Everything changes when a group of terrorists attacks them. Karly is trying to keep herself alive when help arrives in the form of the Alpha Crew. She immediately feels a connection with Ethan, one of its members.
Ethan has one mission as part of the Alpha Crew (a special SEAL team) and it's to save the hostages. Reluctantly, he realizes he has one woman's safety as his priority. He worries about Karly and he wants her out of danger's way.
I love this series. The novel is short but packed with romance, dangerous situations, and action. Both characters were likable and I liked that Laura Griffin added PTSD to the storyline. It made sense. Not every rescue is going to go without consequences.
I'm going to wait impatiently for her next installment.
