[Kame's Review]: "Dangerous Territory"

Dangerous Territory by Emmy Curtis
Publisher: Forever Yours (August 5, 2014)
Series: Alpha Ops, 0.5
Genre: Romantic Suspense


Flirting with danger is reporter Grace Grainger’s modus operandi. But she’s learned the hard way not to grow attached to the soldiers she’s embedded with in Afghanistan. To escape from her pain and loneliness, she fantasizes about the hot night she spent with a gorgeous stranger three years before in D.C. Grace never thought she’d see him again—let alone need him to rescue her . . .


Air Force Master Sergeant Josh Travers knows journalists are nothing but trouble. So when he has to risk his team’s lives to save some reporter who’s been separated from her patrol, he’s not happy—until he recognizes her stunning eyes and delicious curves. Josh has never wanted a woman like he wants Grace. He needs her—even in an Afghan cave with a sandstorm and enemy troops closing in. This might be the end for both of them—or one hell of a beginning.

Kame's Review:

A great start to a new series!

Grace is about to return to Afghanistan for her second tour as an embedded journalist. But before she goes she just would love to just have a few moments to forget. Josh walks up to the bar and is everything a woman could hope for when wishing to put something in the past.

Grace has some deep pain that takes a while to be revealed.  Grace seemed very leery of any attachments in her life and after reading the book I am not sure why that is the case. Josh was the classic military character. There was just enough military swagger and just enough sexy hunk. His ever present distaste for journalists did sort of wear on me. His background seemed to be glossed over in dialog.

This is an opening novella to a series and well I wish it was a full length book. I found myself wishing for more details of Grace and Josh's past; as very little was revealed. They each have some serious issues/hangups with very little explanation why. I would not categorize their connection as a sizzling one but they definitely had some chemistry. Most of the plot takes place during a two day period which I felt was written well. The lead up and conclusion were quick; while that is okay with a prologue I was disappointed in the speed the plot was wrapped up. I am hoping we see more of these characters in the first full length book.

The two lead characters for the first full length book in the series were introduced in this novella and their story intrigues me. I especially want to learn more about Walker and the origins of his call sign. This novella kept my interest and I will be looking for the next installment.
