AEGIS: an elite team of ex-military men who will do anything for their country…and their women

Fighting to clear her brother of murder, freelance reporter Sassy Smith is suddenly kidnapped and thrown into a truck with other women who are about to be sold…or worse. When she sees an opportunity for escape Sassy takes it, but she may have just jumped from the frying pan into the fire.

Former Marine Bryan Fisher (aka Hollywood) is no stranger to dangerous situations, or to his best friend's little sister. When he rescues Sassy, Bryan is determined to keep her safe…if he can keep his hands off of her. Because Sassy is all grown up and not at all like the girl he used to know. But he's got bigger problems. And with enemies coming at them from every corner, Bryan and Sassy will need to work together if they're going to survive.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Action packed! Bryan and Sassy's story picks up where Personal Target left off, so I would highly recommend reading the series in order. Non-stop action and secrets revealed will keep you hooked until the very end, where an unexpected surprise awaits you in the epilogue. I can't wait for to see how the story unfolds in the next book!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Danger, conspiracies and non-stop action If you love reading about danger, conspiracies and non-stop action, then you’ll definitely love Easy Target! The story literally begins with action that had me on edge, reading very quickly to find out what happens next. Sassy Smith is a freelance reporter chasing a story from Mexico to Africa, a story that could lead to the exoneration and release of her brother from a Mexican jail, when she gets kidnapped. Her brother’s best friend and former marine, Bryan Fisher, who was already in Africa jumps in to rescue her and now it’s a race against the faceless bad guys to get to safety and figure out what’s going on. Both Sassy and Bryan have been in love with each other for a long time, but Bryan would never betray his best friend by getting involved with his sister but and with the heightened emotions from the danger they both face, keeping their hands off each other becomes increasingly difficult. For me, the fun in reading romantic suspense is the action, mystery, danger and conspiracies and I got all of that in Easy Target. The action really is exciting and so realistic and I loved it! With a mystery that spreads out in several books and a conspiracy that has the characters on their toes as race from continent to continent, Ms. Thomas does a great job keeping the reader engaged. However, I had an issue with the characters. Sassy and Bryan trying to survive danger worked just fine for me, but Sassy and Bryan trying to navigate their love lives did not do it for me. Sassy is very impulsive and stubborn, prone to rushing headlong into situations that put them all in danger. Bryan for the most part was hung up on the fact that he was not good enough for Sassy and could not damage his relationship with her brother by getting involved with her and the resolution of their romance left me wanting more. That in no way takes away from my enjoyment of the book and I’ll say again that Easy Target was a great read. My only advice to any reader is: while each book can be read as a standalone, to get the full experience of the series I recommend reading the books in order (exactly what I should have done!).
