Crossfire - Traci Hunter Abramson

Summary: Special Agent Vanessa Lauton is living a lie. For the past year She’s been posing as a member of the Dominican Republic’s most powerful crime family in order to infiltrate a Caribbean terrorist organization. When her CIA contact has a heart attack, he’s replaced by U.S. Navy SEAL squad member Seth Johnson—the man Vanessa nearly married six years before. And suddenly the heat is on, in more ways than one.

Terrorist kingpin Akil Ramir sequesters Vanessa and Seth in his Nicaraguan fortress, where they learn of an impending attack on American soil. The Saint Squad is dispatched to calm the storm, but even their heroic efforts can’t stop multiple threats from escalating. Adrenaline rises as the squad confronts enemies who will stop at nothing to sabotage national security—and Vanessa finds herself caught in the crossfire.

My review: Having read all of Traci Abramson’s books I can honestly say they just keep getting better. Crossfire, her 7th book and the third in her Saint Squad series, had me in its’ clutches after the first few pages and didn’t let go of me until the very last page. The suspense was enough to keep me turning pages as fast as I could but not enough to scare the wits out of me (some books, though very good, I can only take in small bites if they get too suspenseful). The plot was very believable and not so involved that I had a hard time keeping track of everyone and everything. Everything kept moving along at a smooth but fast pace. The romantic tension between Seth and Vanessa was not over done and definitely G or PG rated.

In the end, I didn’t want the book to end. I tried reading it slowly (which didn’t happen) just so I could savor it a little more. I loved this book. Can’t wait for her next book in the series to come out.

My rating: 5 stars

Sum it up: A fast paced suspense novel that keeps you wanting more.
