Entertaining but light fare. The op was suspenseful and interesting but the romance developed awkwardly. It was mystifying why Marc failed to ask pertinent and critical questions of Tory prior to beginning the op, those that arose in my brain immediately. And, for all the emphasis on finding and retrieving Alex, there was zero focus on him at the end of the op. With that said, I liked both characters but feel the dialogue between them was stilted and at some times immature. It didn't support the timeline of their romance or behaviors. I understand later books in the series are far better so I plan to continue.
