Series: Mission Recovery #1
Published by Montlake Romance on January 2nd 2018
Genres: Romantic Suspense
A former Navy SEAL, Cole Makani Hunter has returned home from a disastrous black ops mission without his best friend, his hearing, or the use of his right arm. So when his ex–commanding officer assigns him to an undercover mission at a rehab center for vets to discover who leaked sensitive military information to an enemy, he’d rather be anywhere but there. Almost immediately, Cole finds himself at odds with Annie Murray—a peace-loving ecotherapist whose dream is to open an animal sanctuary out of her home. While the two seemingly have nothing in common, their spirited arguments soon fuel a passion for each other.
But just as things begin to heat up between therapist and patient, dangerous complications arise. So does the past—and a shocking revelation that puts Cole and everything he now holds dear in the path of a murderous traitor.
Overall, we really enjoyed Silent Threat. We had a couple small things that bugged us about the book – for one, the hero’s FULL NAME “Cole Makani Hunter” is said over and over. He’s rarely just Cole. And for those of us that listened to us, that was all the more annoying. No one thinks that way!
But we really liked the characters and their chemistry together. Annie is a very likable character – we particularly appreciated her love of animals and thought her role as an eco-therapist was pretty cool and interesting.
We did feel the suspect was fairly obvious, but that didn’t take away from the enjoyment of the story. Every now and again we’d get thrown off his scent, but always came back around to the same suspect and were surprised that the characters never seemed to suspect him.
With enjoyable characters and fun interactions, we would read more by this author!
