which makes it difficult to put down, the dialogue is well written with no swearing a major plus, and there are characters I love and ones I hate and some I wasn t sure about until the very end There s also the romance I knew they cared about each other and they let their feelings be known and the romance was just the right amount to me If you enjoy a fast paced, clean, romantic suspense novel, you must read this book I m looking forward to reading book 1 and hope there are severalbooks to come in this series Mel s Shelves This was a fun one and a great addition to the Hostage Negotiation Team series The synopsis gives you a good taste of what this story is about so I won t rehash that Sophia was a likable character, hard to imagine being in that situation myself and I thought she

a likable character and someone This was a fun one and a great addition to the Hostage Negotiation Team series The synopsis gives you a good taste of what this story is about so I won t rehash that

s exciting Hostage Negotiation series continues in this second novel of Ashes Ashes.Colby s experience in the Marines as a sniper provided him with the qualifications he needed as a sharpshooter detective for the local police Hostage Negotiations task force He loved his job most of the time He usually felt like he could really aid in the saving of lives and in saving others from undue harm from heartless criminals.As the story opens, this wasn t one of those times of fulfillment He felt he had failed He was still feeling down as he arrived home to do some personal therapy He hadn t been home long when he smelled smoke On further investigation he found it to be coming from the house next door The house that was now being used as a rental he quickly arrived, only to discover a young woman holding a pan of hot grease and fanning with the other hand He got her attention enough to discover where the fire extinguisher was He then tried to assist with her burned arm but she resisted all help He returned later that evening with several bags of different take outs and a smile Afterward she still persisted in being evasive of his questions and attention.Sophia had secrets she didn t want to involve him or anyone in She tried to solve her own problems but soon they became too big She felt she couldn t trust anyone.Colby returned to work a couple of days later and discovered she had serious problems and felt a fool How could he be so wrong about an individual He was angry.Thus the story continues with one action after another It became a very intense tale of friendship, trust, mistrust, murder, suspense, and romance.This book review gives a Four and 1 2 Stars rating of this novel It was very well written and action packed but skips scenes a little too fast for true excellence The first of the book gradually built up in intrigue and suspense The suspense held the reader but the remaining scenario moved too quickly allowing a slight feeling of the reader missing something I still am anxious to readof the series.The author generously sent me this book in exchange for an honest review of which I have given I loved this book It starts off with a bang and never stops Yet, even with all the action, there is a nice love story in it as well and I found myself really rooting for the two main characters It s hard not to love a hero, Colby, who bakes and cleans I found myself really feeling for Sophia, who finds herself in a bad situation not of her making Colby helps her figure out what is going on and saves her a time or two in the process I think the only thing that would have improved this book I loved this book It starts off with a bang and never stops Yet, even with all the action, there is a nice love story in it as well and I found myself really
