I received this book for free from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Their spark is immediate

Kingston McNally lost men when someone betrayed his team, and now he’s out for retribution. His quest for the enemy’s courier leads him to Cameroon and Allie Redding, a petite Peace Corps volunteer as stubborn as she is brave. Their attraction is immediate, but Allie has secrets of her own…and she’s not giving them up easily.

But their secrets could burn them both

Allie’s life has been spent hiding in plain sight, but she’s had enough of her cloak-and-dagger existence. On her way home, her plane is hijacked-and King saves her life. But that doesn’t mean she owes him anything…even if he is the most damnably sexy man she’s ever laid eyes on. He’s got black ops and secrets written all over him, and trust is a two-way street.

 

Review

I have got to stop consuming so much news because it’s ruining the pleasure I find between the pages of books. With so much intrigue and suspense in real life, who has time for the fictional variety? But I digress. 

FLASH OF FURY is an action-packed, non-stop adrenaline ride of a book, filled with electrifying chemistry and intrigue to keep you on the edge of your seat, and I can confidently say that this series is off to a really great start.

 Kingston McNally lost some members of his black ops team when they were betrayed by a traitor and has since focused his energy on finding out who betrayed them. His search leads him to Peace Corps volunteer Allie Redding in Cameroon but King isn’t the only one after Allie. After rescuing her from certain death, King is determined to unearth her connection to his investigation but Allie isn’t giving up any secrets.

As the daughter of the head of an intelligence agency, Allie knows she is a valuable pawn against her father but has managed to create a successful life for herself outside her father’s sphere of influence. All of which comes to an end when she is the target in a plane hijacking attempt by local terrorists. But the attempt is part of a bigger conspiracy which leads all the way back to the US and has the potential to rock the nation’s government in a huge way.

King needs to get Allie back on US soil as quickly as possible, but somehow she has become entangled in his investigation and he needs to keep her safe until he can hand her off to her father. He certainly does not expect the explosive passion between them.

Okay, this was an intense and captivating read and I think this is Ms. Griffith’s best writing yet. Every page will keep you in suspense and trying to guess who can be trusted and who is can’t. The author successfully balances the dizzying attraction between Allie and King with the never-ending tension of their situation. The instant connection between Allie and King gave me pause but the author managed that perfectly by letting the attraction build between them for a while.

Allie is smart and brave, but even she was prone to making too-stupid-to-live decisions which luckily for her King was able to save her from. King is a brooding hulk of a man, but Allie somehow brings a smile to his face even with the gravity of his task and the danger they face, and he will do anything to keep her alive even if he can’t keep her for himself.

One thing I enjoyed about this book is that it starts out with us getting to know the two lead characters and get invested in them before we get the fire-hose of information on the rest of the team and the direction of at least the next book in the series. 

I really enjoyed this book and can’t rave enough about the amazing writing and the excellent plot. This is definitely one of the best books I have read so far this year.
