Flash of Fury: Endgame Ops #1 by Lea Griffith ~ Review

Flash of Fury
Endgame Ops #1
by Lea Griffith

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


I love a good romantic suspense book, I love action, adventure, and of course lots of the romance too.... Flash of Fury has all of that and more, a lot more. 

Okay, the more...Flash of Fury is the first book in what I will assume will be a series, that being said, the more I refer to is...more characters, more subplots, more background than is probably necessary.  Yes, I want to know the main character's teammates...but, a little goes a long way in my opinion. There was just too much going on (possibly to set up the next book/books in the series) for me, this took away from the main story of Kingston & Allie.

After dissecting the book, and focusing on Kingston & Allie's story, it was was exactly what I want & need from a fabulous romantic suspense book. There were bad guys, fight scenes, action, intrigue...and yes, plenty of romance too. I just wish I didn't have to dissect it so much. This DID NOT, however, turn me off from trying again. I will indeed check out Endgame Ops #2 when it comes out.

Lea Griffith began sneaking to read her mother’s romance novels at a very young age. She cut her teeth on the greats: McNaught, Woodiwiss and Garwood. As she got older, her need to devour all genres of romance–including contemporary, paranormal and sci/fi–grew. Any romance novels she couldn’t buy were borrowed or traded in her quest to read about that elemental emotion that keeps us strong: love. She still has most of those books; dog-eared, their pages yellowed with age, they still bring her joy.
Lea lives with her husband and three teenage daughters in rural Georgia and she writes her own stories now. With two dogs, a cat and a beta fish named Coddy George, there is never a dull moment. When she’s not working her day job you can usually find Lea at her keyboard, using every spare second to write. Shifters, artificial intelligence, and gene splicing, oh my! Nothing is off-limits when it comes to her writing.
