Review - Expendable

After a bitter fight, Jenna Mosier's pregnant sister ran away. Now, ten years later, Tanya is dead, murdered. A bloody note clutched in her hand pleads for someone to rescue her baby;a child Jenna must find to make up for not saving her sister.

Former Marine Reed Adler thought he left danger behind when he retired from Special Ops command. But faced with a dead body and a terrified ten-year-old boy in his backyard; and a mesmerizing woman who;s tied to both; Reed finds himself pulled into his most complex mission yet.

Ensnared in a dangerous mystery involving biogenetics research and children with no identities, Jenna and Reed must rely on each other for survival. Yet the closer they get to danger, the more intense their feelings for each other become. The cost of saving her nephew may be their hearts; and their lives

My review:

Romantic suspense is one of my favorite genres.  So when I first heard about this book I was immediately drawn to it.  And once I started it, I didnt want to put it down.

As the main characters Reed and Jenna both have complex pasts that they have to work though and overcome while trying to figure out what happened to Jenna's sister and her unknown child.  The characters are great and have such good histories that you really get a sense of who they are.  And you are following along hoping it works out and they figure out what is going on.

Reed and Jenna's friends also make great supporting characters and add to the story.  You also get a sense they have their own histories that would make them interesting characters for their own story in the future.

This book is highly recommended for any fan of romantic suspense or for anyone who is new to the genre but is looking for a good story.  I am looking forward to reading more from the author soon.
