Critical Care nurse Natalia Sokolova is honored to take care of the Deputy Prime Minister of Russia after he’s shot in Washington, DC. But after her patient mysteriously dies and her house explodes into flames, Natalia soon realizes that she’s become a pawn in a sinister game. She has little choice but to trust former FBI Agent Sloan Dryer to keep her safe.
Sloan manages to keep Natalia alive despite the hit-men trying to kill her but when he discovers a link to her family he’s not sure who to trust. On the run for their lives they can’t fight the attraction simmering beneath the surface. Then they uncover a terrorist plot that could bring the nation to its knees. Time is running out. Can Sloan and Natalia save the country and their new future together, before it’s too late?
I went into this book with really low expectations, now let me explain why. I’m only just starting to read more Mystery and Suspense type novels, but I’ve been disappointed by a couple and decided that if I go into Target for Terror with low expectations than I won’t be easily disappointed. The synopsis is solid and I know there will be some romance, I just hope this isn’t predictable.
I saw the man who shot me.”
WOW. This book is FANTASTIC! Target for Terror had me roped in from the first chapter! There was non stop action and this book kept me on my toes while I was trying to figure out what would happen next. Mind you, there were some chapters that I felt were a little slow. Nevertheless this book was well paced and not once did I find anything to be predictable, Woot! I know I’ve already said it but this book really kept me on my toes! Every time I would think I had a moment to catch my breath there was a new plot twist that just put me right back on my toes!
Sloan and Natalie…The intense chemistry and sexual tension between these two? WOW. Sloan has a history that causes him to be VERY protective of Natalie. What I liked the most was that Natalie was a strong character, people were trying to kill her and she didn’t turn into a flimsy/annoying character. She was very smart with her head on her shoulders and a perfect match for Sloan ;). But don’t me confused or put off by this, this was not a romance driven novel!
Target for Terror is the first book in the Security Specialists, Inc series, and let me just say what an amazing way to start off a series! I’m so happy that an excerpt for Target For Ransom was included at the back, I can’t wait for Jordan’s story! This was my first book by this author, I believe she also pens as Laura Iding.
The Bad / In-Between
Overall, Target for Terror is a highly addictive suspenseful read! I hope my review did give anything away because I really want everyone to read this book! I’ll be “patiently” waiting for Target For Ransom to release, in the meantime I might just have to re-read this one. Do I recommend it? YES!!
