A decorated hero, pararescueman Liam McCabe lives to serve. Six months ago, he and Rachel Flores met in the horrific aftermath of an earthquake in the Bahamas. They were tempted by an explosive attraction, yet parted ways. Still, Liam has thought about Rachel every day—and night—since.

Now, after ignoring all his phone calls for six months, Rachel has turned up on base with a wild story about a high-ranking military traitor. She claims no one but Liam can help her—and she won’t trust anyone else.

With nothing but her word and the testimony of a discharged military cop to go on, Liam would be insane to risk his career—even his life—to help this woman who left him in the dust.

Rhayne’s Thoughts:
Under Fire is the third book in the Elite Force series by Catherine Mann. Even though it is not necessary to read the previous books to understand this one, you really should just so you don’t miss out on a great series.

The main focus of this book is on Liam and Rachel. They have a past together and have to work together to overcome a lot of obstacles to have any kind of a future. There are people shooting at them, buildings blowing up, military cover-ups, kidnappings and a pretty intense fight with an alligator, just to name a few of the action packed scenarios.

This suspense story is written a little different than most, where as you know who the villain is from the beginning. You don’t know exactly who is working for or against him, so the suspense level is still well written and incredibly high. I thought it was a different twist that really worked well.

Between the story of Liam and Rachel there is a sub plot with Brandon and Catriona. I loved both of these characters and would have loved to know more about them. Their individual story brought out a lot of issues regarding PTSD. There was a ideal mix of romance and compassion. This story line weaved perfectly with the main plot. It all tied together well. Nothing felt forced or unbelievable.

I liked the information that was written about the difficulties of being married to someone in the military. It is hard on everyone involved and that was depicted well with the characters.

I loved that we got to be joined again with the guys from the team from the previous books. The connection between these guys is what really pulls these books together. They are completely dedicated to one another.

I can’t wait to see what she has in store next for our sexy heroes. I’m sure it will be fantastic.
