Sometimes they went in with a flash and crash, but Lieutenant Gage Brewer always preferred stealth.
UNSTOPPABLE reminded me of the TV show Bones, with Kelsey being a forensic anthropologist and big hunky Gage sent to protect her. I loved Kelsey and Gage and their romance. The suspense plot was perfect for the length of the story and though it only partially wrapped up, I am sure it will be completely wrapped up in Mia’s story (UNFORGIVABLE) who had a small but crucial part in this one.
As usual Griffin writes awesome suspense with subtle romance and the short length of this novella didn’t bother me at all. It was well-rounded and well-written and I can’t wait to read the next installment in the Tracers series.
Her pulse skipped as the feel of him, the smell of him permeated her brain. A jolt of raw sexual awareness zinged through her, and she scrambled away.
Gage needed a woman. Soon. Didn’t it figure that the one woman to stir his interest after months and months of celibacy would be the niece of his CO, a woman completely off-limits for some quick-and-dirty fun?
