Dive into Part One of this heart-pounding romantic suspense story, which continues in Edge of Surrender: Alpha Crew Part Two!
When Emma Wright’s government plane goes down over the Philippine jungle, she’s forced to survive alone until an ultra-elite SEAL team goes in after her. As the leader of Alpha Crew, Ryan Owen is no stranger to challenges, but he’s never tackled anything quite like this sexy, smart, and resourceful woman. The mission is to get Emma home safely, but danger is everywhere, and Ryan’s unexpected desire for Emma could be a deadly distraction.
Back home in California, Ryan’s mission is over—but Emma’s has just begun. She knows her plane crash was no accident, and she’s determined to uncover the truth about what happened—even if her quest for answers puts her at risk. Torn between duty and desire, Ryan searches for a way win Emma’s heart while protecting her from an invisible enemy who wants her dead.
The thrilling conclusion to this Alpha Crew romance is just weeks away!
I have always loved Laura Griffin’s writing, from her first novel on, and I really liked this one. However: BEWARE! This is only the first half of the story, and if you want the conclusion you’re going to have to buy the second book.
No matter what, this is a very well-written story, and it is superbly researched. Griffin constructs believable characters and situations that you can buy would happen in the real world. She’s up there with other favourites of mine like Cindy Gerard, and I really need to get back and catch up with her backlist.
One of my favourite romantic suspense books takes place in the islands of the Philippines, so it was good to find another one in the genre with the same setting. Also so great that this book is similar in that there’s a great balance of action, danger and character development.
I do think it was a bit unnecessary for these navy SEALs to be from a special branch of an already exclusive branch of the military! They didn’t need to be THAT cool! But that’s a minor issue.
In the end, when something is written this well, I can forgive little things that might complain apart from another author.
I do think it’s a pity that this author – along with so many others – has jumped onto the serialised story fad, because it’s a pain authors and publishers seem to love, and every reader I’ve ever come across hates. Apart from anything else, I read so many books, I’m not going to *remember* to go back and buy later books in a series!
However, I still very much, highly recommend this one.
