Tripwire BannerThe bomb is ticking…so read fast! Ha ha. Just kidding. I finished this exciting romantic thriller by Traci Hunter Abramson, and it had bombs though, as well as terrorists, movie stars, special forces teams, beaches, barbecues, and romance. Sounds perfect, right? Read on to learn more and enter the giveaway to win a copy of this awesome book.


Jane Napierski is back at work at the job she loves—being a personal assistant to her friend Sienna Blake, a rising star actress. The duo is on location in Virginia Beach to film Sienna’s new TV series, along with costar Reed Forrester—the man with whom the world thinks Sienna is in love. Wrong.

Sienna’s heart actually belongs to her fiancé, Craig, a Navy Seal with the Saint Squad. Craig must fly under the radar if he is to keep Sienna safe from his world of terrorists and toxic bombs. And Reed has no problem pretending to date his old friend Sienna simply because it means he can spend time learning more about Jane. Making a TV series is grueling work but not nearly as difficult as the treacherous adventure that is about to begin with a simple photo taken in the wrong place at the wrong time—an image worth killing for.

When Craig returns to the United States to spend time with Sienna, he’s not expecting to spend that time protecting her and Jane. Frightening incidents targeting the two women rapidly escalate, and as Craig and his Saint Squad investigate a tangled conspiracy, they find themselves tracking, here at home, the terrorists they have searched for across the globe. But can they shut the terrorists down in time to save Jane, Reed, and Sienna?

My Review

4 delicious1Wow! This book kept me moving from good guy to bad guy. It’s written in multiple POV, almost like a Tom Clancy book in the old days. Except he didn’t put romance in his, and this has plenty of that. I won’t reiterate the story line since I put it above, but suffice it to say, this has plenty of action, two different romantic story arcs (Reed and Jane, and Sienna and Craig), a great setting in Virginia Beach, and lots of characters to get to know. There is TONS of suspense and if you’re a nail-biter like me, you won’t have any nails left when you finish this story. Sorry, but true. I really enjoyed this book, and rated it a 5 on both Goodreads and Amazon. On my more critical Sweet Scale, I rated it delicious (although it will probably give you a heart attack instead of diabetes). There is some heart-stopping action in it.

First Lines

Craig gripped his weapon and made his way silently forward through the woods surrounding the target area. He and his teammates had arrived on board the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan only six hours before they had taken a helicopter to the Turkish border of Abolstan.
