Rated 2 out of 5 by from not bad This wasn't as good as her other novels but it wasn't all that bad. I found it very slow to start and never got to that fast-paced thrill ride point. Sam didn't seem to be that "tough guy" as described and Nicole was just a simple innocent. This made more for a Harlequin Romance type novel than a romance thriller. I hope her 2nd novel in the series picks up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another good book from Lisa Marie Rice This author has a formula. And while she doesn't deviate from it much, as long as I don't read too many of her books in a row, it's a formula that works very well indeed for me. Ms. Rice's formula; total alpha hero, often ex seal or other type of military, heroine in distress, alpha hero lusts after heroine, falls very quickly for heroine and takes over and saves heroine in distress. Heroine falls for hero despite his overbearing ways and allows him to help her after a token resistance. Now one might think that might get a bit tiresome and were I to read too many of her books in a row, it does. I know this because I did it with the Midnight series, reading them back to back to back and by the time I got to Midnight Angel, the sameness really took away for me. In fact I don't think I even finished this one. But if I leave space and read all kinds of other genres between them, I just adore her books and once again I'm happy to say I adored this one too *insert happy face* As per usual, when hero Sam Reston, former Navy Seal and now part owner of his own detective agency first spies Nicole Pearce, his new business neighbour, he is instantly smitten. But he's undercover on his latest case, trying to put a criminal in prison and is in no shape to make any kind of approach. But once he's back to himself, he wastes no time in bargaining her into a dinner date. Sparks fly between them but Nicole is in no state for any kind of relationship. She's had to rearrange her whole life to take care of her dying father. She is trying to get a new business, translating, off the ground and when not working at this, she is looking after her much loved father. But Sam isn't about to let her go. He's never felt like this about a woman before and is willing to do whatever it takes to be a part of her life. He really gets his chance when something strange happens and her office is broken into. He goes into full Protector Mode as he works with his two foster brothers to find out who is after Nicole and what they want with her. As with all of Ms. Rice's heroes, I loved Sam. He's determined to help 'his' woman. He knows his way around the bedroom and he's willing to be flexible with Nicole. Although yes, a bit formulatic, nevertheless he makes for great hero material. And I equally enjoyed Nicole. Despite having her life turned upside down by the illness of her father, she holds no bitterness at her circumstances. Although give many opportunities to become one of those TSTL heroines we all despise, she doesn't. While she wants to hold Sam at arms length, she knows he can help her and she is open and honest with him when she needs to be. Along with every other book by this author with the possible exception of Midnight Angel and I need to read it again with distance this time, I loved Into the Crossfire and most heartily recommend it. There are two other foster brothers and I really hope they each get their own story. I'll be a happy camper if they do

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good as it could have been... I read this book shortly after devouring Lisa Marie Rice's "Dangerous Secrets" and was a little disappointed. It felt like the main characters met, fell in lust, fell in love, and then the hero saved the day. Very formulaic. Nicole is a featherweight in the personality department. She has so much on her plate, a sick father, a business, money issues, and you would assume, a strong personality and a good head on her shoulders to go with those responsibilities. Not the case. She came off flighty and totally dependent on Sam after they hooked up and she lost all credibility in my books. Sam does a complete 180 in the first thirty pages of the book, going from love 'em and leave 'em bachelor to star crossed lover willing to go to extreme measures to keep his woman safe. His woman that he met a day ago. The book had a lot of potential because it was somewhat interesting and did have some good supporting characters but it didn't quite deliver. Language: Moderate Number of Love Scenes: 3 Romance/Heat Factor Between Main Characters: Warm Overall Rating: 3.5/5
