Intense, gripping and emotional. Those are the top three words that come to mind when describing how I felt about Lethal Pursuit by Kaylea Cross. I think this is the best book in the Bagram Special Ops Series. The highs and lows the characters go through, and the reader because of the fantastic writing by Kaylea, are incredible. I have read just about all of Kaylea’s books and I wasn’t sure if I was ready for another book set in the Middle East, however, Kaylea takes this one in a very different direction and it is done extremely well.
We follow Jackson and Maya in Lethal Pursuit. They are a very unique couple. Jackson grew up in Texas with his mother and three sisters, so he tends understand women more than most guys. He is alpha at the core but a protective one. Maya had a very difficult childhood which is the reason she is emotionally closed-off and weary of men. These two characters are very compelling to read about because you really feel for both of them and want them to be happy. They are not overly dramatic which I enjoyed immensely. Jackson learns that in order to win Maya over he has to let her take charge. It is refreshing to see a hero show patience and not run in to be the knight in shining armor. Continue reading
Have you read any military romantic suspense novels lately? If not, pick up Singed by Kaylea Cross, find a nice quiet spot and indulge yourself! You will not be disappointed as Kaylea takes you on a heartfelt emotional journey riddled with danger!
Gage. Over six feet of ripped tattooed badass with a soft spot for one woman. Claire. Sure, he is an ex-Master Sergeant that can handle himself and anyone that gets in his way, but it is the man beneath the brick-house that we get to know in the second installment of the Titanium Security Series by Kaylea Cross.
We get a teasing glimpse of Gage and Claire in the first book of the series, Ignited. Moving into this book we get to see the original storyline pick up and evolve on American soil this time through the eyes and emotions of two people who clearly have feelings for one another but were separated by fear.

Kaylea Cross has done it again. If you like military romantic suspense, you really need to check out Ignited, the first book in her new Titanium Security Series. I think this is one of her best books yet! It is engaging from the beginning, hard to put down until the end and very well balanced between the romance and suspense.
Hunter Phillips is assigned to Khalia Patterson as head of her security team just a short time after the loss of his close friend in Pakistan. He doesn’t want to go, but can’t say no to his boss who rarely asks him for special favors. Hunter wants to seek some vengeance for his friend as well, so he obliges. From the moment that Hunter and Khalia meet you can see there is a spark, however, they both try to remain professional as Hunter doesn’t get involved with his Principals.
I thought Kaylea did an amazing job with the character development and the action/suspense scenes in Ignited. While I have enjoyed all of her other books, I have to admit that this one is probably one of my favorites of Kaylea’s so far. The action scenes in this book were written in a way that I could picture them easier than I could in some of her other books. The suspense was heart pounding and got your breathing hard which made it hard to put down until you were able to finish the scene and know everyone was okay.

Yea! My first review! While I share a love of reading with my sister Amy I had never considered reaching out past the shelves to the e-book world to see if I could find new authors telling stories that would resonate within me. For the last several years I found myself dragging through the library reading dozens of book summaries only to come up with similar storylines and lack-luster love interests that were often predictable and boring. I typically enjoy military-based romantic suspense that is action packed and involves unrequited love with impossible odds.
