Book Review: Acceptable Risk
You get back to back book reviews. Lucky you!
Here's another great read from Revell. This time, I got to read Acceptable Risk by Lynette Eason. I first discovered Lynette through reading Collateral Damage. Since then, I've become a huge fan of military suspense/ romance.
About the Book: Sarah Denning is a military journalist with the Army in the Middle East when her convoy is attacked and she's taken hostage. When former Army Ranger Gavin Black is asked by his old unit commander--Sarah's imposing father--to plan an extremely risky rescue, he reluctantly agrees and successfully executes it.
Back in the US, Sarah is livid when she's discharged on a false psychiatric evaluation and vows to return to the Army. Until she learns of her brother's suicide. Unable to believe her brother would do such a thing, she puts her plans on hold and enlists Gavin to help her discover the truth. What they uncover may be the biggest story of Sarah's career--if she can survive long enough to write it.
Strap in for another breakneck nail-biter from bestselling romantic suspense author Lynette Eason that will have you up turning pages long into the night.

My Review: I read Collateral Damage, the first book in the series and fell in love with military suspense novels. Acceptable Risk does not disappoint. It deals with the topic of suicide among military personnel and it is very well done. I loved the main character. I love her drive and perseverance to get to the truth no matter what the cost. At times, I did feel sorry for her, trouble follows her throughout the book. After overcoming one trial, another one immediately pops up. It is a romance as well and it is not done in a cheesy way. The writer has their relationship form very naturally, zero cheese involved, which I appreciated. Also, there are some great plot twists in this book that will keep you on your toes throughout the entire read. I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to read the 3rd one in the series! Good job Lynette!
Thanks for reading; until next time!
