The evening was slowly rolling toward night. The construction site had been secured for the day. Kitano was happily munching his evening meal. The strays, full and sated from yet another small meal,. lounged in the last vestiges of sunlight. Mandy joined him on the stoop, handing him a cup of black coffee. All around them was peace and tranquility, but Rocco couldn’t shake the feeling of a storm brewing, as if what had happened to George was just the first stacked domino in a line of them.

There may be some spoilers in this review!

Good story, likeable characters and the book shows some knowledge of the terrors in the mind of soldiers with PTSD or those who have been in deep undercover work for too long. I enjoyed the story and would have given it 5 stars except for the fact that the author went far beyond the "cliff hanger" method of getting you to read the rest of the series. Instead of a teaser for future adventures of the Red Team, she instead resorted to blackmail IF the reader wants to know what happened to all the characters in this story. The caretakers of Ty's ranch are left going off a cliff in their SUV and we know the police have found the accident and are investigating, but we are NEVER told if the people were found alive or dead. Also, Ty, one of the Red Team, is left lying on a jagged shelf in a mountain crevice where he cannot save himself. His team members plan to search for him again tomorrow when the book ends. The last we see of Ty he has let a rattle snake sleep inside his pants leg for hours and when the snake awakes and crawls outside his jeans, he manages to grab it and kill it without getting bit. He is preparing to eat it raw as he has been on that ledge for 24 hours and needs food. Want to find out what happens to Ty? You must purchase the next book in the series. This is NOT a cliff hanger, this is blackmail. So, unless you are prepared to purchase and read the whole series, don't bother to start it with this book.

For me this was a reasonably good story ruined by the 'super' macho men who peopled it. If you prefer that a woman be completely dominated by a man in bed, (even when it was supposedly 'her turn' ) the sex scenes might be just what you'll enjoy. I was painfully annoyed by the behaviour and attitude of the male love interest, and the submissive behaviour of the protagonist even when she was clearly uncomfortable with the situation and feeling humiliated. Or should I say, being humiliated. And if I read the word warrior one more time I would have thrown up. Apart from that the story got me hooked and had enough twists and turns to keep me guessing, which was what kept me reading. Then again, I just remembered that in some parts I was laughing out loud because in spite of the supposed crack team that assembled, they were stymied by the most ludicrously obvious code names in the history of writing. There were a few other bits like this, but I can't remember exactly what - by that stage I was almost skim reading. In the end I was skipping over every scene where the protagonist submitted to being dominated and 'f***d' by her love interest. His words.

I haven't finished this book and I don't know that I will. I'm having a terrible time connecting to the characters and caring about them. I THINK the story could be good, I would LIKE to know what's going on, but I can't force myself to finish because the characters just don't work for me.

I think I'll take a break and try it again later. I will update my review if I finish.

This was an OK read. The book would have just plain been better had the author not included all the other men and their soon to be g/fs towards the middle to end. I get that maybe the author wanted to tie the reader into buying more books, but for me, there was just a gaggle of people that just show up, and don't really contribute to the story. I really didn't care what happened to them, so I skimmed the second half.

The sex scenes, I can usually do, I usually skip over them, but there were just too many, they were irritating, they didn't serve a purpose in the plot.

The plot was a little stupid, but not unreadable.

Elaine Levine - The Edge of Courage – (The Red Team Series - Book 1)

This is one of the most suspenseful Romance stories I have read. Ms. Levine’s new Red Team Series is made up of men that have been recruited from various special forces and a world class and famous hacker. As the author sets up the series, the mystery is steeped in a government sponsored group that was established years ago, called the Red Team.

The Red Team which is made up of X-Special Ops guys taking orders from Owen Tremaine, owner of the company. They are “consultants” to Homeland Security (DHS) tracking down local and international terrorists. Their tracking has taken them to Wyoming and many strings tie the White Kingdom Brotherhood (WBK) biker gang to various terrorist activities.

Readers ride this emotional roller coaster while Rocco is trying to adjust to civilian life. This installment is very disturbing and traumatic perhaps it gives a reader a realist view of what an U.S. military individual goes through with PTSD and how they get to that point. As we go through Rocco’s vivid memories of his nightmares he meets Mandy Fielding who happens to be a Red Team member, Kit Bolanger, sister. Mandy’s has a dream of opening a therapeutic riding center on her family's ranch and when she hires Rocco, she is drawn to him even with his haunted past.

This first installment will focus on Rocco Silas who is trying to recover from being undercover for the Red Team as an operative living with a terrorist group in Afghanistan. We find Rocco back in his home town in Wyoming with severe PTSD. He also has nightmares of leaving Pakistan without his young son and he knows he must go back and find him.

Mandy seems to understand Rocco and helps him to heal when no one else can. There is a threat that hangs over Rocco and Mandy because an unknown person is threatening the Ranch. The passion was HOT HOT HOT, as Mandy’s persistent continues to break down the walls around Rocco to reach him.

Can they confront the truth of his past and build a future together or will the enemy stalking him destroy them both?
