Thank you so much to NetGalley and Entangled Amara for letting me read a copy of Zone of Action early! This book doesn’t come out until July 27th, so I read it about a month early and I really enjoyed it! I’ve been on a military romance novel kick lately (hopefully I’ll be writing a post about them soon because I really enjoyed some of them), so when I saw Zone of Action available for request on NetGalley and I read the summary on Goodreads, I requested it so fast!
Zone of Action 4/5 Stars
Summary from Goodreads: Former terror cell expert Audrey Jenkins has seen enough death and destruction to last a lifetime. When she uncovers her ex, Brett, a higher-ranking officer in her unit, selling military secrets, she turns him in and returns to the simpler life she has embraced since leaving the army.
CID Special Agent Cam Harris is a career military man with a strong sense of duty. When a military prisoner who once saved his life in Afghanistan escapes while in his custody, he requests the assignment to track him down.
Cam’s manhunt leads him to Audrey’s door. His prisoner—her ex—will resurface here, he’s sure of it. The feisty woman wants nothing to do with hunting down her ex, but when a terror cell she’s all-too-familiar with launches a deadly attack on army intelligence soldiers and officers, she knows it’s Brett.
Helping Cam is the right thing to do. But the attraction burning between them may be the mistake that gets her and Cam killed…
Oh the drama! Oh the action! Oh the intrigue! Oh the explosions! Everything you could want in an action/military romance! I really liked Audrey as a character and while I didn’t feel like I knew Cam as much as I could have, he was a great love interest. I also loved so many of the side characters (Zack and Elana sequel maybe? Just saying…)! Parts of the second half and the end seemed a little rushed and I would have loved to have more details on how they did what they did at the end, how the twist happened with the other terrorist besides Brett (I’m trying so hard not to give away any spoilers here since I didn’t see any of them coming), and more in the epilogue (but that’s because I love the happy endings), but none of these aspects really took away from the rest of the story/the book. Overall, this was a really fun read and I definitely recommend it if you like action packed romance novels!
