Review: Forged in Fire by Trish McCallan
** Book received from Author in exchange for an honest review. **
For a debut novel, I would have to say that Trish McCallan knew what she was doing.. Or she knew that it was worth taking a risk to get this story out! I mean think about it.. Hot, melt in your mouth kind of sexy Men in Uniform, a kick butt chick who knows how to hold her own with the big bad Alpha Males & a great story line.. What’s NOT to love?!
After having the same dream three nights in a row about 3 Seals dying on a hijacked plane – Beth starts to think she’s mental.. Especially since this plane seems to depart from the very same airport that she works at. Deciding that maybe these dreams aren’t just dreams, she decides to go with her instinct and see if these men really do exists. Imagine her surprise when she gets to the terminal and sees not only the 3 Seals, but every other face (minus the hijackers) that she saw in her dreams. Being the quick thinker that she is, Beth decides to come up with a plan on how to approach the Seals to warn them off, without sounding like a total mental case. Like any rational human being – she decides to tell them the truth.. I mean, what could possibly go wrong? Like I said before, this woman knows how to hold her own and roll with the punches as they are thrown.
Zane is simply amazing on his own. He comes from a family who is both blessed and cursed with this “gift” that enables him to see trouble before it happens. It’s a gift because it warns him. It’s a curse because it never gives him the right amount of information for him to fully stop it before it gets started. Imagine his surprise when this woman is standing in front of him, repeating SOME of the things that he himself just saw happening. Despite the fact that she’s sitting here telling him he just might die – he can’t control the man in him that is insanely attracted to everything about her..
The plot of this story had me captivated the entire time. I felt like I couldn’t get enough. McCallan wrote a story that played to each character’s strengths. The connection & chemistry between Zane & Beth was so strong & real that I couldn’t help but cheer through them throughout the book. The characters displayed such strong emotions that I felt like I could feel every bit of love, joy, anguish, heartbreak & fear that they felt.
He secondary characters are just about as legendary as the main ones. The other two seal members def held their own in this book && we pretty hilarious – even under the most extreme of circumstance. Each one was written with such depth, it’s no wonder that I can’t wait for the remaining books in this series to come out! I NEED to see where this is going to go! If you love a book that is full of romance, intrigue & suspense, then Forged in Fire is def a book for you!
Thanks for stopping by!
