A Dead Man's Pulse: Trident Security Omega Team Book 1 - Samantha A. Cole,Eve Arroyo

This is the start of the Trident Security Omega Team series.  It is advised to first read the Trident Security series in order to avoid spoilers.  If not, this book can be read as a standalone novel.

 

Logan AKA Cowboy is immediately attracted to Dakota.  She is not impressed with him when they first meet, as he assumes she needs his help - but she can take care of herself.  He meets her again later and the sparks fly all over the room.  Now he just hopes he can impress her enough that she gives him a chance.

 

Dakota is a police officer who is always trying to prove herself in a man's world.  With all the odds stacked against her, she wishes for greater things.  When it turns out a killer has her in his sights, she is going to need all the help she can get.

 

Amazing and riveting conclusion of the mystery killer from many books before in the previous series.  Introducing the new Omega Team series, where the members are new and very hot.  This story has so much heat and such a compelling mystery, the pages nearly singe the reader.  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Gentle
Check My Heart - Christi Barth

Kurt met Lisette while she was working with this dying brother.  When they meet again, she brings back memories of that time in his life.  She is looking for work with his team, and he is not up to seeing her everyday.

 

Lisette just wants to find a job in her new field.  Being a nurse is fulfilling, but working with terminally ill patients has a cost.  She is hoping to get into a new field, helping heal those she can.  Kurt has always been attractive to her.  Under such sad circumstances can they learn to love where they have a future?

 

This story was as sad as it was sweet.  The genuine love felt for a family member can be very strong and this felt very real and sincere.  I was touched by the gentle way the author had it brought out in the book.  I give this story a 3/5 Kitty's Paws Up!

Book Theme Song

(this link will take you to my tumblr post with video)

♫Be My Forever by Christina Perri feat. Ed Sheeran  --the lyric video goes with the book cover and with the setting...so yeah, I was under inspired on this book for a theme song.♫

 

 

⇝OVERALL RATING⇜

3.8/5 STARS

B

 

 

My Thoughts

 

I loved the first book in this series, Boomerang…I think I loved it so much because I adored Mia.  I didn't really care for Allison, though…So, I was reluctant to read this because of how I felt about her, I just didn't think I could relate to her as a heroine.   It turns out that Adam's character mostly made up for what Allison was lacking.  So...I did like them, I just didn't love them.  I really didn't understand Allison's relationship with her dad either. 

While the writing is still stellar in this second installment, the characters were only so-so in capturing my attention, there story was lacking something that Mia and Ethan had in Boomerang.  I'm hoping to recapture with Bounce, the next book in the series.
